New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Hudson Valley Wedding Photographer


Serving the Hudson Valley
& Nationwide

When you book with me, you're booking with the peace of mind
in knowing 'I've got you covered.'

If you're anything like me, you've got a serious Pinterest board developing with all these ideas for how you envision your wedding.

I get it! You want the best!

While weddings aren't cheap, you know that you want someone who will be sure to love on everything as much as you have. You've painstakingly planned the wedding - from colors, to types of flowers you want, to your playlist and invitations. And while you will have those memories forever stored in your heart, those little details will need a visual reminder.

So when you're sitting on your couch five or six years down the road, looking back at those memories, you're gonna thank yourself for having invested in someone who took the time to put you first. Your needs. Your wants. And made you their priority.

Xoxo, Summer

Let me answer some questions you may be thinking...

Where do you shoot weddings?

Yes! I'm happy to accommodate couples who are celebrating further away, and happy to travel for all weddings stateside, and worldwide! If you're thinking about hiring me for a destination or international wedding, please let me know so we can develop a package together!

I call myself a Hudson Valley Wedding Photographer. It's where I'm based and primarily shoot. However, I book weddings all over the Tristate area and happily travel when asked to do so!

Do you shoot weddings elsewhere?

What do you offer as part of your services?

All packages come with my creative direction & planning and a wedding photography timeline to ensure that you're getting exactly what you want! Collections are provided in an online gallery complete with fully edited high resolution images and the ability to purchase fine art prints, canvases, and more! 

Packages are built with various popular options including: engagement sessions, fine art wedding albums, additional photography coverage, having a second shooter present and utilizing the selfie station during your reception!

How far in advance do you recommend couples book you?

It depends on you! Some couples decide they want to plan a wedding within a six months time frame; some plan for two years! Couples who work with me, value photography as one of the essential elements to their wedding and will typically book me once they've secured their venue. 

Do you include an engagement session in your packages?

Yes! Some of the packages I've developed includes complimentary engagement sessions. Some do not to provide flexible options!

Do you offer wedding albums?

Hell yes I do! Most of my couples walk away with a wedding album and it's something I love to design for my clients! All fine art albums are customized to showcase the highlights of your wedding day!

Who are your second shooters? 

I'm lucky to work with a tight crew who are invaluable to me! Any photographer who assists is fully trained and offers something unique to bring to the table!

What happens if rains on my wedding day?

Rain may feel unlucky, but it can add a whole new level of depth to your images! Please do not view the rain as a challenge and instead embrace it! As long as it's not a monsoon out there, I will bring a change of clothes for myself, and happily shoot in the rain with you! And yes, I bring super cute clear umbrellas for you to share with your honey, and for your bridal party!

What if I want something different from the
packages you have?

Eazy peezy! The packages developed are intended to give you everything neatly bundled! But if you're interested in having more control, you can build your own package an the a la carte menu!

I do not even know where to begin with describing how wonderful working with Summer was! She is so warm and friendly and professional and just easy to work with. 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 life long friend. She is so easy to speak with and thinks of everything when it comes to planning ahead and ideas for photos. She even found our wedding florist for us! We are so fortunate to have found her. I made it clear that my husband and I didn't want to miss much of our wedding to take photos (even though we wanted a thousand photos taken) and she made sure that we didn't miss a thing. I know this was especially difficult since the timing throughout most of the day was way off from what we discussed, but she made sure we took all the photos we wanted without feeling like we were missing being a part of the celebration. And the photos we have seen so far have been nothing short of amazing!! They are all light and airy, which I simply love! If you are looking for a wedding photographer, look no further! Wicked Petunia Photography is definitely the way to go! We can't thank her enough for being a part of our special day and for her help in capturing all of the beautiful moments that we will now be able to cherish for a lifetime thanks to all of her gorgeous photos!

Working with Summer was a dream. She is the most caring and thoughtful photographer and has an amazing personality. She truly cares about every detail and makes the couple feel extremely comfortable in her presence. Summer did both our engagement and wedding pictures, which turned out beautifully. We cannot thank her enough and feel as though we've gained a trusted friend throughout the whole process. I can't recommend her enough!
