Best decision I made for my wedding. I stand by the title. I knew from the moment I hired Peter that I had made a good decision, but my experience with him on the day of my wedding and subsequent work on my photographs proved that he is the only choice for anyones wedding.
When I met with Peter for the first time we discussed his photojournalistic style and how he would mostly be "my shadow". He lived up to his word. He was not invasive in any measure and was such a pleasant addition to our day. He managed to capture moments that should have only lived on in memory all the while being kind, patient, and extremely professional.
When I received the proofs from the day every expectation was exceeded! Not only did he finish working on them very quickly, but the quality of the pictures are amazing. I cannot get enough of the photographs he took!
I speak for myself, my husband, and everyone else at my wedding when I say if you are having a wedding in the Upstate NY area, go with Peter. You will not be disappointed!!
I don't have enough nice things to say about Peter and his assistant/gear goddess/parent wrangler (and wife) Peggy. From our first Skype session with Peter we were struck with how kind he was. Personally, I worry about how I look in pictures. It is very easy for me to look awkward, and I didn't want that to happen for our wedding pictures. For this reason, it was very important for us to do an engagement shoot with Peter. This was the greatest idea in the universe. We met up with Peter and Peggy in their home turf in Kingston, NY. We sat down and chatted a bit about logistics and got to know each other a bit. These folks are fun! We walked around the lovely town of Kingston, got some pictures taken and really connected with the two fine folks that were going to be in charge with recording the happiest day of our lives. Everything went very smoothly and we got some amazing shots around Kingston. We knew, even before the wedding, that we had made the right choice in photographer. And the wedding day? Peter and Peggy were rockstars! As the groom, I've got an easier go prior to the ceremony, so I saw Peter a little less in the morning. I knew that he was around, taking shots of the bride and ladies getting ready. The day was magical and Peter captured it beautifully. Him and Peg were great. Peg was great at getting our folks lined up for the family shots and Peter was amazing at identifying where to shoot and how to get us all looking super glamorous. The ceremony looked absolutely magical and he caught a great moment in our recessional that has been the go-to image that I send to folks that want pictures of the wedding. We also had planned to do some sunset portraits while folks were eating their dinner. This provided some private time for us and some amazing pictures with dramatic lighting. It was so great to have these shots. Peter and Peggy stayed longer than we expected them to and kept shooting till the bitter end. They seemed to be having as much fun as the rest of our guests and were so sweet the entire day. Peter and Peg are rockstars and I will be forever thankful of how awesome they were. Lastly, two days into our honeymoon we received an email telling us that the pictures were ready to view. This was certainly unexpected, but very welcome. We spent a long time looking through the pictures and re-living the day that had only happened mere days ago. The pictures look FANTASTIC! I’m so happy that we ended up picking Peter as our photographer. We couldn’t be any happier with our pictures. Thank you, Peter (and Peggy). You guys rock!
I could not have been happier with choosing Peter as our photographer! He was always prompt with any questions/requests via email prior to the wedding. You spend a lot of time with your photographer on your wedding day (more than most guests) so you want someone to make you feel comfortable. Peter is super easy to get along with and his wife Peg, who is his assistant, was also so friendly and calming. They didn't feel like awkward strangers with us on our day. During the wedding Peter took 1000s of shots which were beautiful and truly captured every moment of the day without ever feeling an overbearing presence of a photographer. Peter sent me the entire portfolio within 10 days of the wedding and we have gotten rave reviews of the quality. It was so important to us to have nature based photos and it is what Peter does best. I highly recommend Peter and could not be happier with what we got!
My husband and I used peter as our photogrphaer for our June 2016 wedding. We are SO glad we did! Our photos are wonderful, and he was so attentive. General comments: so nice, calm, and fit right in with our crowd. His style is to take longer range shots that still look right up close. The result is that we completely forgot he was there! Our pictures show he was with us every minute but we couldn't tell. My husband and I have done the wedding circuit a few times now, and we laugh when others' photographers are right behind guests, lurking around the bride during cocktail hour. Peter was everything we wanted!! Cost: We opted for the digital package, because that works best for us, but we are also getting a printed album through him. I sifted through a TON of photographers and he was the best for the buck.
I cannot recommend Peter highly enough! From the first time we spoke with him on the phone, I felt extremely comfortable with him and his abilities.
On the day of my wedding, Peter was the very definition of a professional. We had previously discussed how my husband and I wanted to take 99% of the pictures before the ceremony so that we could really enjoy ourselves at the cocktail hour and reception. Peter was completely accommodating. While hair and makeup ran an hour late, we had built in enough buffer time with Peter that he was able to get all of our shots and the ceremony started perfectly on time!
Selecting Peter as our photographer was a fantastic choice for us. He was perfectly calm and professional, even when we were tight on time. His demeanor even helped me stay calm! The shots were beyond beautiful and look completely natural, with no element of forced poses. He delivered the USB of photos to us very quickly, too.
I would absolutely recommend Peter to anyone!
When thinking about our wedding my husband and I picked out a few things that were "key items"...things we wanted to make sure we got the best and a photographer was one. We looked though many portfolios online and contacted different people however when we came across Peter's photos we were done looking!! All of his photos were beautiful and conveyed the same feel that we wanted- kind of a rustic, country chic. Since we were from out of town we did not meet Peter until a few days before the wedding when came out to look at our wedding location. The second we met him in person we again knew we had made the right choice. He spent hours hanging out with my family and walking around scoping out the property and different potential photo areas. I honestly wish we lived closer so we could hang out with him and his wife Peggy on a regular basis!! They are both so laid back and easy going. On the day of the wedding they did a fantastic job!! They were so sweet and helpful and accommodating when we (I) decided at the last minute I wanted a certain type of photo or a specific location. The locations he picked out were beautiful and I am so happy to have the photos to remember the day. Peter is highly highly recommended...looking back we would definitely hire him again!! Thanks again for making our wedding day so special :)
Peter and Peg are where it's at! As soon as I spoke to Peter on the phone, we just "clicked," and I knew I wanted him at our wedding. Planning our wedding was a crazy process, but none of my anxiety went towards photography. Peter just genuinely loves weddings and seemed to have a blast just documenting our day. I still think he was more excited about the day than I was at times! He is also incredibly fast when it comes to turnaround time. We literally got our digital photos back 4 days after our wedding! We also did an engagement photoshoot with him about 2 months before our wedding, and I'm so glad we did. He managed to capture so many beautiful images. I'm extremely self-critical and still I found so many photos that I love. I could not have been happier with Peter and MPeg, and we were so pleased with their work that he will be doing my sister's wedding in 6 months!
Peter was the best! His team was so on top of everything! They seemed to know exactly what I was thinking all the time and were always one step ahead! I don't think I am the most photogenic person, but they made me feel confident and relaxed the whole day. My fiancee doesn't love standing there posing for pictures, but Peter and his team made it go by super fast and we got so many pictures! and they are all amazing!! I can't imagine how we will ever be able to choose for an album because I literally want ALL of them! Peter and his team are such a joy to work with and are so easy going, but then very professional as well. I would recommend Peter Demuth Photography over and over! You will be over the moon with your pictures and the experience!
If you are looking for an amazing photographer who is also an incredible joy to be around, you should do whatever you need to in order to have Peter Demuth be your photographer at your wedding. He is incredibly knowledgable about how/when and where to take the best pictures and Peter makes you feel really comfortable if you are camera shy like I am. My husband and I had a lot of fun getting to know Peter and his lovely assistant Peg during our engagement pictures and wedding. My family is still talking about how fun it was to have Peter and Peg with us the day of the wedding and I have already recommended him to everyone I know who is getting married in the near future. He captured so many special moments that I didn't even realize he was able to capture until I was looking at the album online. I can't say enough how happy we were with our decision to hire Peter to photograph our wedding.
Peter is an extremely talented photographer and also a great guy to work with. Every expectation was exceeded. I was most interested in hiring Peter for the way he incorporated natural elements into his photography. But the ease of working with him and his partner are what I enjoyed the most. The gorgeous outdoor wedding photos we received are exactly what I had hoped for. I consider myself lucky for finding Peter to shoot our wedding!
We absolutely loved working with Peter! We found Peter through our venue (Apple Barn Farm) and fell in love with his photos from another wedding there. From our very first contact with Peter, he was friendly, patient, obviously knowledgable, well-informed about our venue, and incredibly professional. We selected Peter's green package, which provides digital access to photos and files, and worked perfectly for our needs. Our engagement photo shoot was really fun and gave us a chance to get to know Peter a bit before the wedding. Leading up to the wedding, we emailed back and forth, and Peter's experience and expertise proved invaluable in planning our big day! On the day of our wedding, we loved having Peter and his wonderful assistant with us all day! Peter put us at ease and we felt completely comfortable with him - almost like being photographed by a friend who understood and truly captured our personalities. Our photos were beautiful, captured all the large and small moments of our day, and our friends and family have given us countless compliments on his work. We would 100% recommend Peter to our friends and hope to have occasion to book him again in the future!
Peter was a pleasure to work with. I planned a good portion of my New York wedding in California, so initially met him via Skype after checking out his website. My husband and I liked him immediately. He is professional, very experienced, and obviously loves what he does. Peter showed up for the event early and went above and beyond what was expected in photographing our day. He took amazing pictures of us, our guests, the venue....everything! I can tell by the pictures that he was everywhere, however, he moves so quickly we hardly noticed him as he slyly caught all the great candids! My family and friends keep asking how we are going to choose the pictures for our album, because there are so many great photos to pick from- I think that is a testament to Peter's skill and thoroughness. Thank you, Peter for helping make our day memorable!
Peter was an awesome photographer from the prewedding planning, to the day of before the ceremony, our ceremony and the reception. I was not very into the whole picture taking experience prior to the wedding and neither was my husband, but Peter made us feel at ease and the entire process was very quick.
During the reception, Peter took photos of all our guests, groups the guests requested, and was never in the way. One guest asked if he was at the entire reception because he blended right in.
His picture are amazing. The process of choosing the photos we wanted was very easy and the link he sent allowed my parents to be involved in the process without having to live near us.
Not a bad word to say. Would recommend him for every friend I have getting married.
Peter was huge part in creating the best day of my life and helping my husband and I remember this day forever!!
Thank you Peter!!
Peter was just amazing and I am so delighted to have had him as our wedding photographer! He is a true professional and totally took on board the vision we had for our day. The morning of the wedding he was with the bridal party in the house and we wouldn't even have known he was there. He captured some beautiful candid moments that could never have been posed.
At the reception the family photos were all completed quickly (and painlessly might I add) and the rest of the day he floated around taking photos of guests enjoying the day.
Peter stayed late into the night and for that I thank him because we have so many photos of our guests enjoying our night, as well as the crazy dance floor antics.
Thank you for our wonderful memories Peter!
Any other brides looking for beautiful natural photographs should definitely go to Peter.
"Peter went above and beyond our expectations. We went with the economy package, with this we got a free engagement session. He picked a beautiful location and spent the time getting to know us and what kind of pictures we would want. He was very dedicated, on the day of the wedding he arrived at our house early to get pictures of myself and and the bridal party getting ready and he stayed with us all day until the very end of the reception. He had 1500 picture proofs to us online in only a couple days after the wedding. They were all gorgeous!! Pictures were very easy to order and were beautiful! I would definitely recommend him to everyone!"
Peter was the wedding photographer for our September 5th wedding, and we could not have been happier. He is incredibly friendly and artistically skilled. He also has an incredibly quick turnaround: we received our photos in just a few weeks after the ceremony. Highly recommended is the photo booth that he offers: the photos are available next day and the whole wedding party had a blast! Also, he sends the digital in a flash drive after so that you can print your own photos (though he is very passionate about photo-printing himself), which is incredibly convenient.
We had the absolute pleasure of working with Peter for our wedding just a few weekends ago. We are beyond thrilled at how beautiful our wedding images are. Peter was so easy to work with, and his enthusiasm is unparalled. His technical know how and talent are astounding. He was great at giving gentle direction when needed and was naturally laid back and relaxed. Peter made us look beautiful and we cannot wait to show everyone our album. Thanks to Peter, we will have many wonderful images to show our children when they ask what we did for our wedding. We simply couldn't be happier and would recommend Peter endlessly to anyone who wants a genuinely nice, and good-hearted photographer (who also completely rocks at what they do)to capture their special moments to have, and reflect back on forever.
"We used Peter for our wedding and we couldn't have been happier. He is an absolute professional. From the moment I met him, I felt comfortable with him and knew I wanted to work with him. He is definitely dedicated to doing a great job for his clients. And his pictures are wonderful. I would highly recommend hiring Peter!"
Our experience with Peter as our photographer was perfect from the start. After a bad experience with our first photographer he was a breath of fresh air. He was professional, extremely nice, and a perfect match for our wedding. He took gorgeous engagement photos of us in freshly fallen snow that he waited diligently for. He gave us the rights to the photos so we can print them through him or at our leisure. At the wedding he was quick and painless never making us feel pulled in every direction but instead capturing things as they happened. He is a true artist as well. His photos are clear and so beautiful and he uses all types of backgrounds to his advantage. We couldn't be happier with him and his work. I would highly recommend him to anyone. Thank you Peter!!
I don't even know where to begin with our review of Peter Demuth. From our first meeting on Skype to our long island engagement session (included in our photo package + small travel fee for Long Island shoot) to out big day, Peter was awesome!!! Our engagement session was one a cold,snowy day but Peter and his wife Peg trooped around with us through the park and streets of Huntington. I was a little nervous about how the photos would turn out and to our great surprise not only did he have them ready for us within a very short period if time, the we're beautiful!!! I shared them with family and friends and they could not get over them. We were in touch several times leading up to our wedding and he had everything very organized and ready to go the day of, he was also very available for any questions Leo and I had. We. Our big day arrived, Peter came early to photograph some preparation for the groom and I and detail Shots. He worked quietly and quickly, I swear I forgot he was there sometimes. He was like a fly on the wall capturing all the special moments as they happened naturally. From the ceremony, straight in to formal photos and some very romantic photos between my husband and I, and throughout the entire reception up until the very last song he was there snapping what seemed like endless photos!! Our wedding was on a Sunday and by Friday he had our online collection of photos available to view. They are STUNNING, beyond any expectations either of us had. You can see the emotions of the day progress through his photography. There are so many beautiful angles and variations in lighting. These photos truly tell a story, a very beautiful one, and will have preserve our wedding day for years and years to come. Thank you Peter and Peg for all your help and making our special day so very awesome .
"Peter Demuth is fabulous! We went with the most expensive package he offers where he brings another photographer with him (Keith Ferris). I didn't even notice the two of them during the ceremony and I didn't see them at all during the reception (You know those weddings you go to where the photographer is in the way -Not the case here). We have over 1500 incredible photos. Each and every one is better than the last. And Peter is a funny, down to earth artist you would be lucky to work with. I have nothing bad to say at all about Peter and I recommend him to all my friends getting married now. Peter was on time that morning and stayed until it was long over. We got a lot of perfect shots. I wanted to get a couple of photos that I let him know about beforehand and he made sure to set aside time to get those done. He also took our engagement photos which we love! We didn't use his photo booth but I have seen the photos from other weddings and they really are great fun!"
We had Peter as our wedding photographer on 10/18/2014. He was great to work with! From the moment he arrived he was friendly and unobtrusive and captured getting-ready photographs without being in the way. He got us through the family photographs after the ceremony quickly and efficiently, and be even stayed after the reception was over for a bit to take a few extra photos of my husband and me. We had our pictures to view online in less than a week! They are beautiful and there are so many great shots to choose from. We couldn't be happier with having Peter as our wedding photographer!
"We cannot say enough about Peter. From our first conversation, we knew he would be easy to work with. We were thrilled after our engagement photo shoot to see that his skills were as wonderful as his personality. Ours was not the traditional wedding. We have three children from a previous marriage and it was extremely important to us that they be included in everything. He was so flexible with everything we asked, listening to our suggestions while using his knowledge to capture the perfect moments. He took many beautiful family shots and was also able to get in some shots of the two of us without making the children feel excluded. We were truly so happy with Peter. He made us, and more importantly our children, feel comfortable. We would highly recommend him for any occasion!"
"Peter was our photographer for our wedding this Fall. My husband and I are so happy that we chose Peter to capture this event. He was a professional and very talented and skilled :) Responsiveness - Peter was always responsive to emails during the planning process. He showed up on time and prepared for every meeting, engagement photo shoot, and wedding. He posted photos quickly after the engagement photos and wedding. Personality - Peter was extremely easy to work with. I believe that this style is photojournalist, and he captured nearly every minute of our day and yet he was not in the way at all during the wedding. It was fun getting to know him during this period in our lives. I'm glad he was a part of this special time. Talent - Our pictures are AMAZING. He took great shoots, interesting angles, great lighting, good backdrops. He made sure to take every photo on our "must take" list. He also took SO many more. There are moments of the day that I didn't get to see, but that Peter was able to capture on camera. I would strongly recommend using Peter as your wedding photographer."
Best Photographer you can Imagine! I had my wedding at Mohonk Mountain House last month. The pictures are amazing!!! We already shared the online gallery with our family and guest. Everyone love it sooo much! We absolutely loved working with Peter! From our first meeting at Mohonk to the end of our reception party, everything went smoothly. Peter was very professional and arrived earlier then scheduled. We felt comfortable communicating with him too! Can't thank him enough! We just feel we were the luckiest couple having him as our wedding photographer :)
"Peter helped my husbands and my vision of the perfect wedding come true. He and his assistant, who worked on our one-of-a-kind wedding photo-booth, made the day effortless. Peter was a great vendor; from the first email Peter strove to make our day perfect. His pricing is fair and his professionalism is top-notch. Peter has state-of-the-art equipment and we received breathtaking photos as proof. We would recommend Peter to any couple looking for an amazing, personable photographer."
"Peter was great to work with. He was very responsive and prompt from our first meeting to our requests for prints. Peter was very organized and he made sure to capture the moments and people we requested along with little details that we may otherwise have missed. Peter never put himself between us and our guests but he was always right there when we wanted to capture a moment or group shot. We had a great time at our wedding and we are so glad that Peter's pictures have accurately and beautifully captured the love and joy we felt on that day."
"We originally chose Peter as our wedding photographer mainly because he was local (grew up and still lives in the same area I grew up in - the Hudson Valley), down to earth, and an amazingly friendly guy. What really stood out to me the first time I met Peter was his passion for photography in general. I find that photographers who do wedding photography "on the side", do it with a little more passion than the others :) He chooses to photograph not just because it pays the bills but because he truly enjoys it. Peter was overly accommodating for all of our needs and spent close to 11 hours with us on the big day, capturing every single moment (from the hair salon, to the very end of the dance party!). We are extremely satisfied with his service, and the quality of the photos he took. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a laid-back, local, amazing photographer :)"
"Peter took the photos at my wedding last June. My husband is also a photographer, so it was important to us to have great wedding photographs. Peter really delivered, providing all of the portrait shots I requested as well as some great candid shots of the reception and set up. He also provided an electronic gallery of the photos for my guests and has also been very prompt in providing copies of the photos to the guests. Overall, Peter was amazing to work with!"
Peter was excellent. He was very easy to work with before the wedding, was a really nice presence at the wedding (friendly, not pushy but able to get everyone together quickly for the group pictures), and most importantly, he took incredible photos. He also got us the photos really quickly after the wedding. We could not be happier.
"For my wedding, I was very picky on my photographer, and scoured websites looking for the perfect one. Peter's pictures were of incredibly high quality, and I had all but made up my mind before I even met him. In person, he far exceeded my expectations and was friendly, laid back, and helpful. The pictures came out great, and the "green" package was budget friendly. He also did an engagement photo session with us, and was a great sport about following us to our favorite areas in the Gunks. We had a photo booth at our wedding reception. I highly recommend this as it was lots of fun for the guests, and also gave us some of our favorite photos."
Peter was referred to us by our venue's coordinator and we could not have been more pleased with his work. Our situation was a bit out of the ordinary - we had a destination ceremony in Bar Harbor, ME, three weeks prior to our reception, and no engagement shoot. Although we didn't have the benefit of getting to know Peter prior to the reception he was so easy-going and personable I felt like we had. His professionalism and talent shined through regardless of the fact that we only just met the day of, and he was able to capture some truly beautiful and special images that we will cherish for many years to come!
Peter was an absolute gem-- Worked diligently for hours through a very rainy, muddy wedding, and caught tons of wonderful shots throughout the day. He was also a pleasure to work with-- very funny and kind, and never a complaint about the weather conditions. He and his wife, Peg, were there every step of the day, and we couldn't be happier with him. His emails were always prompt and he was kind enough to chat with us over the phone before we met in person, to get a good sense of one another. Absolutely great guy and wonderful photographer!
Professional, affordable and seemingly in two places at once. My husband and I were married in February at Mohonk Mountain House in Ulster County, NY. Prior to our special day, we sorted through websites and reviews trying to find the perfect photographer for our intimate event. In addition to receiving excellent reviews on various sites and being listed on Mohonk’s recommended photographer list, Peter came highly recommended by a personal friend and fellow photographer.
Upon reaching out to him, Peter was immediately responsive and planned a date to meet us at a local coffee shop to discuss the details of our event. He took the time to get to know us as a couple and really understand what, exactly, we were looking for. On our wedding day, he arrived ahead of schedule and helped guide us through the hours leading up to the ceremony, all the while taking hundreds of exceptional photographs.
During the ceremony, Peter discretely and artistically captured every moment, and afterward he expertly staged portrait after portrait with our family and friends. Before heading into the reception, he braved the 28-degree weather for an extensive outdoor photo shoot, during which he took some of our most memorable photos.
From start to finish, Peter was exceptional – professional, affordable and seemingly in two or more places at once throughout the entire event! Ultimately, Peter turned a few hours on a bitter-cold winter day into a lifetime memories.
"Peter was my wedding photographer. I really liked his professional yet friendly and laid-back personality. He worked with us and our ideas and suggestions without demanding things be done his way as some other photographers. He was able to put us at ease during a few stressful moments. I was truly impressed at the volume of photographs that Peter produced. Because of this, my wife and I have so many memories that were captured. If you are looking for a professional photographer who takes amazing photos and who can put you at ease, Peter is the man!"
"I am tremendously happy with Peter's work. He was my photographer for my wedding in April 2010. From the beginning he was great. He worked with me and was very accommodating to what I wanted and always responded promptly when I contacted him with any concerns or questions. He had a way of "sneaking" in there and getting shots when I didn't even know my picture was being taken! His shots always look polished without having the "staged" look. He was able to capture all the emotion of the day in every picture while making everyone feel very comfortable. I can honestly say that he really WORKED at my wedding. He was on his feet non-stop. He is also fast! Several times something unpredictable would happen and he was right there to get the shot - always on his feet and always there. I was impressed that he was there for the entire duration of pre-wedding pictures and then continued to stay until the very last minute of my reception without showing a bit of fatigue. An added surprise was to see our wedding photos on our wedding gallery website so fast! As the reviewer below said, I can't say enough good things. I would gladly and highly recommend Peter! He is a pleasure to do business with!"
"Peter is a professional photographer who does a great job capturing the moment in his work. He also responds back in a timely manner and is happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have. We loved the engagement pictures and our wedding pictures!!!!"
"We are very happy we selected Peter to be our wedding photographer. From the beginning, he was very easy to work with and we were really excited by the quality of his work on his website. When our wedding day came, he was great ... calm and laid back before the ceremony when I was stressed out and running late, very unobtrusive during the ceremony, organized and efficient during the formal pictures, and seemingly everywhere during the reception. Every time there was something interesting going on I looked around and Peter was there. Most importantly though, the quality of the pictures he took is FANTASTIC ! I do not consider myself photogenic at all, in fact I usually cringe at myself in pictures. Peter made us look amazing and honestly, there is not one bad picture in our collection. I have heard nothing but raves from friends and family who have checked them out. If you are looking for a great photographer, look no further."
"My husband and I used Peter Demuth to photograph our June 2013 wedding. Peter is wonderful. At our consultation meeting he was prompt, very prepared and professional and has a low key and calming personality, and even then his attention to detail and keen eye were apparent.
He was very accommodating in where we had our engagement session and even had a personal story or two relating to the place. The engagement pictures turned out awesome.
Our wedding photos are absolutely beautiful. I ordered some 8x10" enlargements and they are so lovely- the smaller views don't do his work justice. I still marvel at how he was able to get all of the different angles and views that he captured- for our wedding he was a one man show. I am anxiously awaiting my "coffee table album" and can't wait to see how it turns out.
Peter Demuth is super professional, personable, and most importantly does impeccable work. He takes really great pictures and you'll like working with him! You won't be disappointed!"
"When my husband & I met with Peter, I knew right away he was the one I wanted to capture each special moment on our wedding day. He seemed passionate about photography and took his work seriously but more importantly I truly felt that he wanted to do his best to make his clients' days at ease and give them something to remember forever. His work undoubtedly surpassed my expectations which were already pretty high. He was professional, not in your face but seemed to get every moment we could have asked for. His photos are beautiful & he has an eye for what will look just right in pictures. I thought he was a little crazy bringing us into the woods behind my parents house but after seeing the photos, they are just breathtaking. Everyone complemented us on how great the photos looked and how they hardly seemed to notice Peter & his assistant during the wedding yet there were tons & tons of pictures of us all on the dance floor. Those were my favorite -the random spur of the moment shots he got. It really captured how much fun we all had and how on cloud nine my husband and I were on our special day. Peter even got shots of our very high energy boxer dog, Dempsey. He knew how important it was for us to include him & they came out so cute! HIGHLY recommend Peter to anyone who is looking for a wedding photographer or even just a special event. You will not be disappointed!"
"After looking at several photographers available, we selected Peter because we felt he was able to capture events in a way that we loved. We contacted him and fortunately he was available to accommodate our event. Not only were we thrilled with the end result, it was such a pleasure to work with Peter. He was like having a family member taking pics, not obnoxious or in the way at any point and was able to capture the day with great photos! Peter is a great guy and would highly recommend him for your special day."
Review submitted by Samya's mother.
"Peter did my engagement and wedding photos. He was very professional and gave us beautiful artistic photos! He even posted online galleries for us within a week. We could not be happier that we chose Peter to photograph our wedding!"
We met Peter by coincidence while looking for wedding venues, and so excited that we did.
He is not only a great photographer, he's good at making you feel extremely comfortable in front of the lens, mostly because he's incredibly nice and personable. Professionally, he's a great communicator and totally reasonable when you have requests.
Peter is not only an extremely incredible photographer, but while working with us, he new exactly how to help us get ready for the day. He asked all the right questions, planned everything out perfectly in advance (with exceptional help planning the group shots, and where we wanted our private shots taken) and worked with us on everything we requested. Furthermore, the quality of his work was outstanding. He never missed a moment, and took photos without ever imposing himself or distracting from the celebration. In addition to the beautiful posed photos he took of us, his remarkable talent for capturing absolutely stunning candid shots throughout both the ceremony and the reception truly made the entire day come to life again for us.
One, Two, and Three! Peter was amazing. My Wife and I had a pretty unique ceremony on a cliff that was a bit of a hike to get to. We weren't sure if we would find someone that was willing to drag their equipment into the woods and up the mountain. Peter and his wife Peg met with us a couple of weeks beforehand to take the hike and get some "inspiration" for our special day. I have to admit that the stresses of wedding planning had us nearly dreading the day. That initial meeting with Peter and Peg totally turned us around. One thing when selecting a vendor that is often overlooked is attitude. Peter’s enthusiasm and genuine excitement to take our photos was a welcome and much needed surprise. Aside from his positivity his professionalism really shone through. He puts forth effort that you would expect if he was shooting his own wedding. On the day of the ceremony Peter was literally running up and down the trail to get the shots. Peg was there the whole time assisting peter with lighting equipment or helping to get the perfect shot. At one point she even started breaking off dead branches from a tree that was preventing Peter from getting the shots he wanted. He and Peg really made us and our family feel so comfortable. He made what can be a tedious part of the day actually fun. We received the web gallery of the photos in just a couple of weeks. We were very impressed with the quantity and quality of the photos. Shortly after, peter sent us a thumb drive containing full resolution photos as well as the photos in low resolution to make it easier to post to Facebook. If you go with Peter you WILL NOT be disappointed!
From the very first moment we met Peter we just knew hi is the one who is going to shoot our wedding day.Peter is very professional and fun to work with,from the morning till night he was basically my shadow,no matter where I turned he was there .The photos are absolutely gorgeous and stunning,we got ton of compliments from our family and friends,he coptured all the most important moments and beyond,truly amazing photographer,we highly recommend him.
Do Yourself a Favor and Hire Peter Demuth. As the groom a few responsibilities were mine, besides showing up on the big day I was tasked with finding the band and the photographer. After looking at our venues list of "recommended photographers" I was rather taken aback by two things. 1: Many of these photographers had no clue how to actually take a portrait of a person. Far too many shots that were an attempt to look "artsy", but they were really just out of focus and obscuring the subject of the photo. 2: The cost of some of these photographers was in some instances 2 or 3 times what was to be expected. Therefore I began searching on my own for photographers in the area who were actually trained photographers (Peter has a degree in photography and works at SUNY New Paltz running their computer technology in the photography and graphic design programs), and whose portfolios were extensive and diverse. As a trained photographer Peter is able to capture any type of shot you want - tell him what you're looking for and that is what you'll get. That is the benefit of using a trained photographer and not just someone with a fancy website. Beyond his superb eye and ability to get a great shot, Peter is very professional, easy to work with, has great communication, and is helpful with planning. His rates are a very good value, and you really feel like you are getting a great deal. I wholeheartedly recommend Peter as a photographer for anyone getting married in the Hudson Valley/NYC area (especially at the Roundhouse) - you will not be disappointed.
Peter Demuth is by far the best photographer I have ever met. He made my wedding so special and created moments I can cherish and look back on for the rest of my life. His work is incredible! If you look through all the wedding websites you will find a never ending list of photographers and some of them also have great reviews. But the way Peter is respectful and energetic (without being cheesy) is by far a head above his contemporaries. He amazed me. I was referred to him by my sister-in-law from when he did her wedding a few years back. Giving him a phone call was by far the best advice I took throughout all my wedding planning! His prices are absolutely fair and he went above and beyond my expectations. He somehow managed to blend into the party so well that I almost completely forgot he was there, he wasn’t constantly asking me to pose with this or that. I was able to enjoy every moment of my wedding without any interruption. Then, even more amazingly, the pictures came (pretty quickly) and come to find out he was absolutely EVERYWHERE! I have so many perfect pictures that truly capture all my favorite moments from that night and a few I didn’t even know about. We were working with a very small tight budget, and honestly we went over what we had planned for photography when we booked with Peter, but he made it worth every cent. The day truly flies by and only the photographer can fully capture it for you forever. So even if its a bit of a stretch, go with Peter Demuth for your wedding and you will be forever grateful like I am.
Peter Demuth was our wedding photographer in July 2016. From the time we began researching Peter's work through the wedding day and after, his superior talent, excellent taste and overall expertise was clear. After speaking with him, his knowledge and experience were obvious and we knew we were in good hands. On our wedding day, he was terrific. He was enthusiastic, had an easy manner and got along really well with everybody. Peter made ideal use of the light and the scenic atmosphere including a wide open field, forest, and river in the Catskills. Peter's portraits, naturalistic shots and candid photographs were all excellent. He also went above and beyond and stayed throughout our entire reception.He was great!
Peter did such an amazing job capturing the emotions of our wedding day. Not only was his work great, but he was so personable and pleasant to work with. He took time to understand what we wanted out of the day and made sure to accommodate that. Our friends and family were amazed by our pictures. We feel so lucky that we have these memories captured in such a beautiful way for the rest of our lives.
Peter is amazing! From the engagement pictures to the wedding photos.. everything was perfect! Peter was so passionate and patient about getting every shot... and wow, did he deliver! I would recommend him again and again!!
We absolutely loved having Peter and Peg photograph our wedding. Peter is incredibly talented and captured our day and our venue exactly as we remember it. It was important to us to have photos that captured unscripted people and venue both indoors and outdoors. Every photo does that with perfect colour, lighting, and harmony. We are blown away by the detail and care that went into each shot. Having Peter and Peg at our wedding was like having friends there. They are friendly, professional, and simultaneously everywhere and nowhere. The personalised photo website makes it easy for us, our friends, and our family to view and order the photos they’d like and Peter’s prints are both beautiful and reasonably priced. It was also wonderful to be able to do an engagement session with Peter and Peg. This allowed us to get to know them better and feel more at ease and less on display on our wedding day.
Phenomenal Photography!!! To start, the wedding itself was a blur of anxiety, happiness, and excitement. You can only pray everything goes well. Also, I know all brides are unique, but I tend to be just plain awkward...especially when I have to pose for pictures. That's where Peter came in. He was like a ninja, moving through the crowds, snapping up moments I don't even remember happening and making us look phenomenal. The quality of pictures were superb. I shared my wedding pics with my family and friends and the compliments haven't stopped coming....the wedding was in June by the way. Peter's not pushy, didn't make us do lame poses and most importantly listened. I couldn't ask for more in a photographer.
Peter was great to work with. We did an engagement shoot with him as well and everything came out wonderful. I was not a very prepared bride, I did not have a shot list or really any kind of idea of what I was doing and pretty much blanked out for the wedding yet Peter managed to wrangle us all together to get some really amazing shots. In hindsight there were a few shots that I would have wanted that we did not get, but that was 100% my fault. Peter did great despite my fog. He really was like a ninja, half the shots I don't even know how he managed to get. We will definitely call him in the future if we ever need more pictures done.
