'Summer Barnhart, aka Wicked Petunia Photography, is absolutely amazing. As a photographer, and now a friend, she has gone above and beyond to give us the best experience we could have ever imagined. From spending time collaborating with us on the phone about different ideas to being extremely attentive to all details on our wedding day, she did it all.
Summer walked us through everything step by step and made things as simple as they can be. Getting married during COVID has been a tough thing to navigate to say the least. Summer has accommodated us, provided us with great ideas and has been an absolute pleasure to work with the whole way. If you need a photographer for any type of event, Summer will help you to make that day as special as it can be and provide you with memories that will last a lifetime.'

Summer is seriously so much more than just a wedding photographer! From our first conversation over the phone I knew we would be in good hands with Summer. I absolutely love her style. It’s very romantic, personal, and her photos are so bright and pretty which is exactly what I was looking for. She goes above and beyond to ensure she gets to know the bride and groom as well as your different styles so she can incorporate that into your photos on your big day.
She made us feel so comfortable at our engagement shoot and we seriously had a blast shooting with her! She is so attentive, professional, and creative. We were blown away by our engagement photos, it made us even more excited for our wedding day! Our wedding was only a few weeks ago but from the photos we’ve gotten back so far we are truly amazed. Summer and her second shooter, Janine, did an AMAZING job! They made me look like a real life princess in these pictures! I’m so excited to receive the whole collection, I know it will be amazing based on all of her previous work. I highly recommend going with Wicked Petunia Photography for your wedding day or with any other special events in your life, she really goes unmatched and will ensure to capture all of your beautiful moments excellently! Thank you so much Summer!

'Summer is AMAZING! She is so easy going and captured our wedding perfectly. From the beginning, the process was so easy and she was so approachable and helpful with my million questions. Before our wedding day she made a whole outline to keep the day organized. It was so stress free and I never once was worried about our photos. She captured every little moment. When people see pictures from our wedding they are non stop talking about how amazing they are. Attention to detail, different settings, lighting, poses, in the moment shots...everything was perfect!!

I'm Summer

I'm Summer, your Hudson Valley Wedding Photographer. I 'm a wife and mother. I like lazy Saturday mornings over a cup of coffee. I prefer nights on the couch with my family, but also enjoy craft beers and apps in a swanky bar. I love being outdoors and I'm eternally grateful I get to experience all four seasons!

I dig personal touches & homemade items over commercial goods. Admittedly, I also love shopping on Amazon Prime.

I also love weddings. Which is cliche sounding, but true. 
I'm not just for couples 'madly in love,' (yeah, we've heard that a million times!) but for all types of couples, and ALL sorts of love. Your love story. Your connection.

I believe in telling stories. Unique love stories in a way that are emotionally driven and authentic to who you are. I believe in people and developing relationships with each couple. These relationships give me the insight needed to tell your story. And helping to preserve your first heirloom.   

Married, Mommy, a light chasing storyteller

If I could give Summer more stars I would! Summer was an absolute dream to work with and her photography skills are amazing. The photographs she took of our wedding came out better than we ever could have imagined and we are so thankful we had her there to capture our day. Summer is professional, reliable, super responsive, and overall just a great human being.
 I can't recommend her enough!!

Summer is amazing! She did such a fantastic job on our wedding photos last October. She and her assistant, Barbara, were the perfect mix of flexible and directive. The process leading up to the wedding was smooth and easy - Summer let us know exactly what she needed. As for the photos, THEY ARE AMAZING! Summer has a keen eye for beautiful details and stunning lighting. She made us both feel like total rockstars, and captured the FUN and liveliness of our wedding. I love my photos!
