Hello, it's nice to meet you!

Holly and Jim Greene are a husband and wife photographic duo in the Catskills and Upstate NY, covering the Mohawk Valley, Capital Region and surrounding areas. We primarily do photography in the Catskill, Adirondack, Saratoga Springs, Albany, Hudson, Berkshire & Vermont areas. We both love being in nature, hiking and even drove cross-country twice, taking photos along the way. We've been together for 20 years and married for 15 of those!

We've been doing pro wedding photography together since 2003. Jim is the one to thank for starting the business. He showed me a newspaper classified ad for a couple seeking a wedding photographer. We answered. It was back in film days before digital was even a thing. Maybe it was the wedding or it could have been the wedding party sitting curbside buying us Oboys at Esperanto's after the reception... either way, we knew it was the direction we wanted to go.

Our photography style is a range of colorful, natural and candid moments (as much as each event allows for) with a creative editing style in post-production. I was a graphic designer before I was a photographer, so I have all the knowledge beyond just the camera alone. With over 25 years experience of photoshop and lightroom, I like to include the original captures with duplicate versions that are filtered as the current trend, black and white, sepia, moody and composites on occasion. Our style is also what you request. We'll do our best to match your ideas, during and after your event. 

Most of all, we want you to feel comfortable and feel relaxed getting your photo taken, creating a less-stress and no-pressure environment as much as we can on our end. You will find our current prices listed clearly; no hiding or fuss.

We offer high-quality photos on an online image preview gallery and a mailed USB with all your photos and photo release.

FUN FACT: Out of the Ordinary has two meanings and is meant both those ways. We take photos out from this ordinary life doing ordinary things but also being true that we try to take a different approach creatively than most. This idea goes beyond just our photography style though—it also means we have customer service, editing, and digital file delivery approach like no other. Each wedding is different on it's own accord, and unlike the mainstream pros, we want to include you on the process of what you want in photos, not just what we think. Maybe that, in itself, is Out of the Ordinary.
