Wallkill, NY – Jennifer Brister is a wedding photographer and owner of Story and Gold Weddings | Photographer in Hudson Valley NY. Jennifer photographs beautiful weddings from the Hudson River Valley to NYC, New York. Story and Gold Weddings focuses on the storytelling details of one’s special event, photographing memories that will last a lifetime. She is everyone’s local Hudson Valley photographer for engagements, weddings, elopements, family photographer, and documentary style photography.
“The first wedding I ever photographed took place in the center of a small city, three days after that state began legally recognizing gay marriages,” said Jennifer Brister, the spokesperson for Story and Gold Weddings | Photographer in Hudson Valley NY. “About fifty people sat on concrete steps in the bright sun and watched as two women promised things to one another and put rings on their hands and kissed in between joyful tears running down their faces. This was the moment I fell in love with wedding photography. And I fell hard. I didn’t just want to photograph weddings; I needed to tell these stories. Story & Gold Weddings was born out of the desire to record and capture the stories behind, between and in front of two people in love. With a sensitive and subtle perspective, I capture sincere moments that when pieced together, make up our lives.”
In addition to being a storyteller, Jennifer Brister is a photographer and a decent ping pong player. Originally from the Midwest, her hometown roots have given her a love for small towns and casseroles. Now, as a still rather new New Yorker, she finds endless inspiration in the green of the Hudson Valley and the energy of NYC. Her strengths include using her awkward charm to make nearly anyone comfortable in front of the camera, she’s surprisingly a good cook, and great at remembering names. Her style of shooting tends to heavily lean towards photojournalistic, while still providing encouragement and guidance to create a comfortable environment where natural, authentic portraits can be made. Her photography style can best be described by browsing through her portfolio on her website. Her style, which is very authentic, raw, emotive, courageous, natural, and loving, has been cultivated by years of having slightly intrusive people staring at her camera.
Jennifer’s compassion will show as she promises to cry at each of her client’s weddings. In love and joy there are tears of course. Additionally, Jennifer is ready and willing to travel to all of her client’s wedding venues, regardless of whether they are outside of the Hudson Valley and NYC. She has a special travel destination wedding rate for her clients. Besides requiring a 50% deposit to book a date, she will always meet her clients at a place of their convenience to get to know each other better, even if it’s on Skype.
