Patti Hale

I am a portrait and event photographer in Hopewell Junction, NY, serving the Hudson Valley area, primarily in Dutchess, Putnam, Westchester, and Orange counties.

So why photography? Because it's one of the best ways to show people how uniquely beautiful they are. Simple as that. And each image is a moment in time that we'll never get back again, and the choice of lighting, composition, and subject all come together in a click of the shutter. It's thrilling to create images that will last for generations to come. A slice of history.... how amazing is that? I would love to do that for you, your family, your business, or your event.

Chosen Moments Studio


The studio, located in Hopewell Junction, NY, is a 2000 square-foot state-of-the-art facility, with a large shooting area, two hair/makeup stations, dressing room, client meeting space, bathroom, kitchenette, and office. I want everyone who comes into the studio to feel as comfortable as they do at home, and to be excited about the creative process that happens when you can be yourself and let me capture who you are in portraits.

Please feel free to stop by the studio or get in touch with me so I can get to know you and talk about how we can create the images that you are looking for.
