New York Wedding Photographer Diane Stredicke
Your wedding photographer is the one wedding vendor that you hire, who will spend pretty much the whole day with you. It’s good to know a little bit about them. This is just a start. Let’s get the conversation going…
My last name is pronounced STRED • i (the i sounds like the i in itch) • KEY (like the one you open doors with). Not an easy name for a photography business.... thus Hudson River Photographer.
The other two mugshots are my workmates: Zoey & Fig. Both rescues, they have my heart.
I live in Rhinebeck, a small village north of Poughkeepsie on 3 acres with my wife and the two dogs. It's quaint town, with a great movie theater, a bookstore and a lot of good places to eat, so if you come up and visit me there is no shortage of places to go for dinner.
Photographing weddings was never the plan. I studied theater and film. Had a career in graphic design. Photographing weddings basically utilizes all of the things I've learned in life. And that is life isn't it? The circuitous route to finding the right fit.
I love what I do and am sometimes amazed that this is what I get to do as my job.
