As destination wedding photographers with over 200 celebrations in our decade-long career, we’ve seen so many beautiful locations around the world.  But we keep coming back to the Catskills in New York – it truly is one of the most magical places on our planet.  If you’re reading this, you’re most likely looking for a Handsome Hollow wedding photographer, for your celebration in Long Eddy, New York. We’re so glad you made it to this page!

We’re Joel and Justyna Bedford, award-winning destination wedding photographers.  Our clients have described our work as romantic, cinematic and sentimental, and we happen to agree with them.  We spend our lives documenting the coming together of two families.  We like to think of it as the beginning of a new legacy.  We’re total romantics at heart – and often think of our photos surviving long after this generation.  Perhaps one hundred years from now, they’ll be rediscovered in a dusty old attic, and your great-great-great-grandkids will find as they’re playing hide and seek.  “Who is this beautiful lady?”, they’ll ask.  It’s you.

We approach wedding days from a mainly documentary style.  Apart from your portrait session and the family photos, we like to allow the day to unfold as though we were not there.  We won’t ask you to pretend to talk to your friends, or cry on cue or laugh for no reason.  We believe in allowing real memories to unfold, and capture them as they really did occur.  If you like what you’re reading so far, have a look at a few of our favourite celebrations below:
