Jean Kallina, of Hudson Valley Photography, is absolutely the finest photographer to hire for any special occasion. In my case, I hired her for my daughter's wedding. She captures moments on film with elegance and creativity. Working with a list prepared together, she photographs all the traditional moments from several angles giving a choice of expression. She moves so quickly around the setting of the event that she is able to capture those so important and unforgettable moments that might be missed in the excitement of the day. She captures these moments on film framing the pictures so they weave together the beauty of the day.

We’re so happy that Jean Kallina was the photographer at our wedding. From the initial planning phases to the last dance she was always available to answer our questions and give us advice on how to preserve our event in pictures. Her style is quiet and unassuming yet she and her staff were ever present taking hundreds of photos – at both the rehearsal and the wedding - capturing all the excitement and enthusiasm of our wedding weekend. Her skill and creativity as a photographer was evident in both the formal pictures and the candids. Her understanding of color and perspective enabled her to capture fantastic shots – pictures that over the years will send us right back to that lovely summer weekend in August. She didn’t miss a detail and for that we are truly grateful.

I cannot recommend Jean Kallina enough! Our photos came out absolutely spectacular. When planning a wedding you begin to realize how ridiculously expensive every little thing can be. While Jean's cost is competitive and on par with other photographers in the area, we considered going cheap on a photographer or even having a friend take pictures for us. We are so glad that we didn't go down that route. Having these amazing photos to look back on is absolutely priceless. We had the best day of our lives but it went by so fast and there were moments that we missed all together. Her photos captured the spirit of our wedding perfectly. She was extremely unobtrusive which we loved, but she somehow captured every amazing moment at the same time. We've gone to weddings where there is a videographer with a bright light shining in your face or photographers blocking your view of the bride and groom or getting right in the middle of your group making your feel uncomfortable and the pictures look unnatural. Jean's presence allowed such natural photos to be taken and everyone just looked like they were having fun in the moment rather than posing for pictures. She has an amazing eye for detail and every picture came out truly beautiful. We highly recommend not skimping on a photographer and we highly recommend Jean!

I hired Jean for my May 2014 Hudson Valley wedding. We were married in a Catholic church and then held a reception on a family farm inside a tent. All of the photographs came out beautifully. Jean was easy to work with, her assistant was a lot of fun and did a great job corralling the ring bearers/flower girls for group photos, they were not in the way at all during the day/didn't feel like we were being paparazzi stalked at our reception and I thought her prices were extremely reasonable given quality of service and location. Also her instagram is really awesome, so you know she's passionate about taking good photographs even when she's not on the clock. I would definitely recommend!

Jean Kallina Photography was the best choice for our wedding. Jean was very familiar with our venue and knew all of the great spots to capture our unforgettable day. Not only was she professional, but she was extremely attentive to the bridal party and our families.

She took the time to meet with us at the venue and recommend places to shoot and time frames to begin/end--even going a step further to help me formulate a "picture schedule" for the day of the wedding.

She responded to emails same day and made it a point to let me know if she was going out of town or couldn't be reached for a few days.

The turn around time getting our photos amazed us and we were more than happy with the outcome. I would highly recommend her for your wedding or special event.

Jean is an artist. Her photos are so beautiful that it is difficult to choose which ones I want to print. Everything is shot in color, black & white and sepia and the shots are stunning. She catches the celebration in a beautiful and unique way.

Guest after guest commented that she was unobtrusive at the wedding but she took a zilion shots. I love the way she shot the objects like the dresses, etc. Really a wonderful experience working with her.

Working with Jean was wonderful. She is professional and listened carefully to what we wanted. On the day of the wedding, she was a wonderful presence. She made people comfortable and was able to take many stunning photos while not being obtrusive.

My only regret is that I asked for all images to be in color, and many of them are in b/w and some files weren't touched up (simple touch-ups like straightening the edges, etc.). I don't have a problem doing my own touch-ups, but I am sorry that I don't have the original color for some images. Even the b/w images are beautiful, however.

Otherwise, a perfect experience!
