I’m a Documentary Wedding Photographer shooting weddings in the Hudson Valley, New York City, Miami Beach, Austin and Puerto Rico—maybe a few other places too, so just ask!

I adore intimate, chic weddings and fun creative couples.

I also Love…

To Cook, Punk Rock, Horror Movies, Sipping Wine, My two Cats Genevieve and (Ansel RIP), My very patient Fiance, Barry (whom I shoot with), Gary at Adorama Camera, Dining out, Things in groups of 3, Ghost Hunters and Ghost Stories, The Container Store, My Leica compact camera, Kitchen Gadgets.

I obsess about weddings 24 hours a day. Wedding Shows, Magazines, Blogs, I’ll take it all! As much as I love photography, I hate having my picture taken (So I get it when you're a bit nervous in front of my lens). I’ve been an Active Member of the Wedding Photojournalists Association since 2005.

Some of my work has been seen in the New York Times, Lela New York Blog, Bride Chic, How He Asked, Wedding Wire Blog, Wall Street Journal, New York Magazine Weddings Editions and TLC's TV show, "Say Yes to the Dress".... and most importantly by the eyes of the couples who we’re lucky enough to shoot for.

Cheers! Kim & Barry Read less

I must have viewed the websites and portfolios of over 50 photographers, and had long phone conversations with about 6. I chose Kimberly because I absolutely loved her style as displayed by her photos, as well as her down-to-earth, real personality. Her photos were candid and artistic, and had such a natural feel to them that really made them look so personal. I disqualified a lot of photographers because their portfolios either had photos that looked too 'staged' (and corny, in my opinion), or they were a bit too "over the top" that they looked like they were taken for the purpose of being in a magazine (and not for the bride and groom's pleasure!) Kim didn't try to up-sell any of her packages, and provided us with her honest and humble opinions of what she felt we would benefit from with her services. The day-of, her and Barry's pre-ceremony guidance was the right balance of subtle direction, and letting things flow naturally. From the ceremony through the reception - we did not see Kim and Barry! That is how discreet and professional they were! We just got our photos back last week, and we are so beyond happy! She captured moments we didn't even know we had - in such a beautiful and natural way. I have looked through the same photos countless times, and have been having trouble narrowing down our favorites to include in our album. Thank you Kim and Barry!!! Your skills truly helped us embody the beauty and magic of the day!!!!!

Kimberly couldn't have been more amazing for our wedding. We really wanted someone laid back and real, that wasn't too stuffy and fake, and that matched our personality. Kimberly and Barry met this perfectly. She couldn't have been cooler.
We loved her attitude, her honesty, and even her ability to deal with other vendors of ours that were pushy for things that we did not want.

The photographs Kimberly took will help us remember and celebrate our wedding day for years to come. She is absolutely WONDERFUL!

Kim and Barry took photographs at our wedding a few weeks ago. They were wonderful to work with. They were very responsive and professional. They gave us the right amount of direction for our first look and family photos to make sure that we had beautiful shots, but also allowed us to enjoy the moments we had together before our wedding with each other and with our families. Once the ceremony started, they continued to take wonderful photos but I barely even noticed that they were there. A few days after the wedding Kim sent me a link with some of the photos on her blog and I got to relive all of the special memories between me and my husband, and with our friends and family.

The photos are spectacular and Kim is extremely talented. Kim and Barry are quickly and efficiently, making sure that they get all of the shots that the family wants but not taking time away from the ceremony and reception itself! I feel really lucky that they were able to photograph our wedding. I highly recommend this vendor!

Kim and Barry were a dream to work with. They were both incredibly fun and nice and certainly helped make us feel at ease during our wedding. They won't bark orders at the wedding party to get in line to take photos. They aren't in your face all day. They won't harass you or your guests. They take wonderful photos and you barely notice they are there. I cannot compliment them enough. The photos came out amazing and I thoroughly enjoyed working with them. I highly recommend hiring them to photograph your event!

I knew I liked Kim from our first phone call. Kim is direct, smart and creative. But most importantly for me - Kim and Barry are no BS kind of people. I looked a lot of wedding photographers' online portfolios and disqualified most of them because of too many fake, posed or corny photos. Totally not me. The most important thing to me was capturing the moment---the feeling, the warmth, the people, the love. Kim and Barry did just that. Each photo captures movement, a moment, a laugh, a tear, a smile all with the gorgeous backdrop of the farm venue in fall. The photos are drop dead gorgeous. Really.

Kim and Barry were great to work with. I had one mini-crisis about 2 months prior to our wedding having to do with lighting outdoors at night. I shot Kim an email, she called me back in a few minutes, we talked through some options and had a plan of action. My husband and I met with Kim and Barry about a week before our wedding and walked through the timeline, talked through some likes/dislikes and snapped a few test shots. Luckily, all of our 'likes' and 'dislikes' seemed to align with Kim and Barry's :) But even if that weren't the case, Kim and Barry will work with you.

On the day of, Kim and Barry were super relaxed which made us feel super relaxed. My husband and I are no models - we've never been the center of anyone's camera before. But Kim and Barry barely had to give us any direction. They just captured us being us. Which again, is exactly what I wanted.

Choosing which photos to include in our wedding book is going to be tough… but it's a happy challenge :)

What can I say about Kim and Barry other than AMAZING!! Pre-ceremony, Kim was more than a photographer. She helped me so much with the details of planing an out-of-town wedding. I am very type-A and detailed oriented. She somehow calmed me down, and I trusted her expertise. Trust this team! They know what they are doing!!
During the ceremony, they remained out of the way while still taking a million pictures! We hardly noticed they were around. They want everything to be natural and relaxed.
When were received all of our pics- in an extremely quick manner- we fell in love with the day all over again. They were definitely magazine quality...no cheesy factor with this team! We loved their spirit and ability to communicate as friends. We would recommend them to anyone getting married in the New York area! Thank you guys for being part of our special day!!

We were sooo happy to find Kim and Barry! Not only did they take gorgeous photos, but they are truly awesome people. When we met Kim and Barry, they seemed so excited to be photographing at our venue. I was totally put at ease knowing that we were working with a vendor that was so enthused about their job. Also, the value of their services is beyond five stars. I could go on and on..but I really think all you have to do is look at their work to understand how great they are!!!

We used Kim and Barry for our wedding at the Onteora Mountain House at the end of June. They were awesome. The photographs are gorgeous and we got them super quickly. They managed to capture so many special moments without ever being in the way. They are also really fun and friendly people while being totally professional. I could go on and on, but I think her photos speak for themselves. She has a unique style that I love. Check out her website!

I hired Kim and Barry for my wedding which I would describe as a classic Manhattan Saturday night formal type of thing. Kim and Barry are the best. They are really super nice, funny and professional. The photos from my wedding are fabulous (and Kim made me look really skinny somehow in a way that I was not sure was possible!). The value for the services is also something I feel you cannot compare. Quite frankly, they should charge much more! Would recommend them 100%.
