Razos Family morning play-16 (1)

We had such fun making unforgettable photos of our family at Christmas last year. B got everybody smiling for our beautiful group photo, and we so appreciated her determination to capture all the action—even coming back the next morning for sledding! She captured moments of joyful play with all of us involved in a way we never could have, and these images are precious!

We love our album so much! LOVE IT! We look at it constantly. Thank you SO much!

B. Docktor Wedding Photography

We hired B for our wedding photographer because the images on her website looked so natural and spontaneous, and the lighting was beautiful. On the day, B fit right in with everybody, and it felt so comfortable and easy to make our family group shots. Her photos capture the spirit of the day perfectly! We loved how you worked. We loved every step of it! And we adore looking at the album—it makes me feel like I’m back there on that day.

B. Docktor Wedding Photography

You were so wonderful to work with, B! You were a wonderful part of our wedding and I will sing your praises far and wide. Of all the things we spent money on, these photos are definitely at the very top of the list. You perfectly captured our wedding, our friends, and the beauty of the whole day. Thank you so very much.

B has an eye for capturing personalities and emotions and a quiet way about her that honors without intruding. We honestly forgot that B was there through most of the wedding. She quietly went about capturing memorable and intimate moments throughout the day without ever disrupting the flow and enjoyment. And when it was over, we had a collection of truly exquisite photographs that capture the spirit and beauty of our day.

Our family was so pleased with the images that B was able to capture at our special family occasion! She was so patient, calm, and accommodating of our varying family requests - she just rolled with the mood and it shows in her work! We would highly recommend B to capture your family's special moments.

B's work has a personal quality of clarity, form and focused attention where images not only capture reality, but the magic of being there in the moment. An intuitive sense of light and surrounding. Masterful.

I just wanted to write and tell you how thrilled I am to own the Angora Goat piece. The anticipation of bringing it home was memorable, and now that it is here, I am uplifted every single time I walk by it. It was truly love at first sight. Thank you for sharing the essence of you and your gift with others as you do. You have a way of capturing a moment that lives beyond that moment.

B is AWESOME. She photographed my family reunion in Pine Plains in July 2016, and I have never seen a photographer provide the level of attention before, during, and after the event that she did. She was very responsive, and she thought carefully about how to make each shot the best it can be, and her prices were reasonable. I HIGHLY recommend her.

--Atif Qadir, New York City

Thank you ever so much for photographing our wedding and engagement. Your creativity and expertise  beautifully captured our spirits and our love. Thank you also for your help throughout the process.

I am so moved by this photo....and for so many reasons. Not only the technical skill and artistry of B, and of course this spot-on depiction of the band of brothers. Plus, the backdrop of our region, which looks especially "enchanted". We are blessed to have these men in our midst, able to enjoy this moment of recognition; and to have the huge talents of such an amazing chronicler of our lives here. I had high hopes for this photo opportunity, knowing that B would create something spectacular --- but this photo far exceeds anything I could have imagined. Magnificent, on all levels.

--Lynne Perrella, Ancram, NY

B was such a pleasure to work with! We all love the pictures she took of us at our family session in Hudson, NY for my dad's 70th birthday.

"Our album arrived yesterday, and it just makes us happy every time we open it. We all love the albums!!! They are perfect. Your work is so beautiful--thanks again for making a gift that we will cherish. We loved working with you!"

--Andrea Jaffe and her father, Mark Weiss, Putnam Valley NY

We'll always look at those wonderful pictures with a memory of how magical that day became. How fabulous! Thank you for your skillful, creative direction (and product)!

Jimmy UPB-12

B has an amazing eye...especially when it comes to photographing animals. She recently made pictures of our dog, Jimmy, for a calendar shoot and really captured his personality. The outdoor action shots of him running in the snow were clean and crisp. The indoor shots of him on his favorite couch were warm and inviting. She was very patient with Jimmy and coaxed him along gently to get her shot. He adored her. In addition to the pet photographs, I also have a lovely photo that she took of a local scene in Pine Plains hanging in our living room and it always garners compliments when guests are over. I highly recommend B. Docktor should you be in need of a photographer. Her work is of the highest quality and it is a joy working with her!

I love, love, love the photos you made at our annual party. The images of the girls are just so precious to me. I'm so glad we finally had you do this for us!

--Mary Kay Seery, Stanfordville NY

Our patients look uplifted and moved by B's photographs in our medical offices. The images provide a connection to nature and animals that's so welcome in this clinical setting. We love the pictures filling our walls, and we also love seeing our patients' delighted responses.

Docktor's photographs of animals are superb and could hardly be surpassed by any contemporary photographers.

I've been meaning to write to tell you how very happy I am to have your wonderful photographs of my grandchildren in one place. Not being a grandma who carries and shares photos of the progeny, I have surprised myself by carrying the album along anytime I was with people who haven't seen it. The comments are always gratifying. People admire the quality of the photos and what you've captured--and, of course, my gorgeous grandchildren :-). Thank you again for convincing me that this was the way to go!
