I'm Summer

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 believe in telling stories. 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 legacy after the dust has settled and the sun has set.

the Experience

'Don't Let Anyone tell you your wedding is Chips & Salsa. Your wedding is Guac.'

'Wicked Petunia is one of the best
Hudson Valley Wedding Photographers...'

'If you are looking for a photographer who not only will go above and beyond but make you feel like family, look no further! Wicked Petunia Photography is the easiest and best choice you can make when planning your big day, hands down.'

'Wicked Petunia is one of the best
Hudson Valley Wedding Photographers...'

'During the first ten minutes of our initial telephone conversation I knew I wanted her to be a part of our big day! It honestly felt like I was speaking to a lifelong friend. She is so easy to speak with and thinks of everything when it comes to planning ahead and ideas for photos.'

'Wicked Petunia is the best
Hudson Valley Wedding Photographer...'

I can't say enough good things about Summer! When choosing a wedding photographer it was really important to me to find someone who would catch the beauty in the details and in the simpler moments of the day. Not only did Summer do just that, but she was able to do that in the midst of dealing with a late groomsman, potential for extreme rain on the day of and with a bridal party of 20 people. My bridesmaids are still talking about how great Summer is! Aside from the day of, she talked us through everything leading up to the day and made sure we were comfortable with the direction and timeline. We are so happy we choose Summer to shoot our wedding!

Summer was the first and only photographer we spoke with and we both knew instantly that our search was complete. Quite simply, she is the best in the game. We were amazed by her continued passion and excitement. She is immensely skilled and creative – don’t expect a checklist of cliché wedding photos with Summer, she has true vision and is not just a photographer going through the motions. She looks to capture your unique story through her artistic lens.
We knew we were in good hands. We deliberately provided little instruction because we trusted that the photos would come out perfect and they did!!! On top of all of this, she was generous in sharing tips and trips to ensure the day was smooth and successful. She helped craft our day-of timeline and thanks to her guidance, it was simply perfect. Not one issue! We can’t thank her enough and will be using her for many more occasions down the road. THANK YOU SUMMER!!!!

It’s hard to fully express just how amazing Summer is! Every shot she took was beautiful. You can tell she loves what she does and it shows in every picture. We cried going through them. Not only is she an amazing photographer but also a groomsman wrangler. We had a bridal party full of rowdy comedians and she knew just what to do to get them in line. She felt like a part of the family and at the same time she was invisible in the crowd wrapped up in capturing all the amazing moments of our wedding. I would recommend her 1,000 times over and it was such an honor having her there taking our pictures.
