Welcome to Elizabeth Unterman Photography, where love + light merge with the magic of the camera.
I work passionately to create a unique visual experience for your wedding, portrait or special occasion. Photographs are how we share our memories for years to come, and I want yours to be exceptional.
I am originally from NYC and now live with my family in Woodstock, New York. I have been taking pictures for as long as I can remember....falling in love with the darkroom in high school and transitioning to adore the digital darkroom too. I earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in Photography from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 2007 and have exhibited my photographic work in galleries nationwide. I have always worked professionally in the arts - running a gallery at UMass to being the Education Coordinator at a not-for-profit photography center to currently working as a photography professor. I especially love to help others find their creative voice through the photographic medium.
Are you available for photographic services?
Yes! I am available to photograph your wedding, event, family, or individual portrait in the Hudson Valley. I am also available to teach classes or teach private sessions. Every summer I teach a popular Teen Photography Camp in Woodstock - so keep an eye out for that.
Can I see examples of your photography?
Of course! This website has a small amount of examples. Browse the wedding link and you can see excerpts from different weddings. Interested in a photo booth? Check out that link. Want to see more? No problem! Get in touch and I can send you a full wedding album or excerpts from many more weddings.
How many weddings have you photographed?
I photographed my first wedding in 2000 for a close friend. I had so much fun doing it that I offered to photograph several other friend's weddings for the next few years. I continuously photographed more and more weddings a year as a side profession while I was working other jobs in the arts or attending art school. Before I knew it, I was getting more requests for my services than I could handle (not a bad thing at all!). So, I decided the best thing was to only take a small number of weddings and family portraits a year. That way I can put a lot of energy and love into each occasion that I photograph, and never feel overwhelmed (because YOU are worth it!).
How much do your services cost?
I customize pricing based on each wedding, portrait, private lesson etc. I find that each of my client's needs are so different and I want to make sure that my pricing reflects each individual. For example, a wedding with 50 people will likely to have different photographic needs than a wedding with 250 people - that is why I like to have a brief consultation over the phone and then send a quote based on that conversation. Do not hesitate to contact me for information.
Where are you located and will you travel?
My home + studio are in Woodstock, New York and I tend to photograph a majority of my wedding, events, portraits and family sessions in the Hudson Valley region. However, I am always up for traveling! Just contact me for details.
Do you have an assistant?
Yes, I have an assistant who also acts as a wonderful second shooter. She will help me with equipment, run the photo booth and/or be another creative set of eyes to capture the day.
