The Welkin Studio is a wedding and lifestyle portrait boutique best described as, "where the fly on the wall meets lightning in a bottle." When we blend our methods, strengths, and styles, the results are purely magical. This spectacular fusion allows us to capture events as truly happen, and as you truly are.

We believe that life happens in between poses. We capture the fleeting moments that define the memories you'll reflect on for a lifetime. When you expect the unexpected, like we do, extraordinary things happen.

Our unconventional approach produces creative results and a fresh look continually sought after for custom projects of all kinds.

We're based just outside of NYC, in southern Westchester, NY. As much as we love home, we're wanderlusts at heart. We're delighted to welcome anyone into the Welkin family, regardless of where you are! Yes, we travel, and quite often.

Whether we're at the local park for your family portrait, hiking trails with your dogs, gently positioning your sleepy little newborn, or hopping a flight for your exotic destination wedding, we embrace every experience as a unique adventure.

Capturing your unique personality involves a delicate combination of observation and interaction. Finding that perfect balance is what we love to do--and it's what our clients feel we do best. After all, we're more than just photographers.. we're storytellers. And simply put, we're honored to capture the stories of your lives.
