– MEET THE HUDSONS –

We got married before Pinterest.

-

Our biggest fight ever was over a donut.

-

Misty taught Nate how to clean fish, but now he out-catches her every time.

-

She packs the camper, he drives the truck.

-

She cooks dinner, he does the dishes.

-

We wanted a girl, but it turns out boys are more our speed (they're really cool).

-

Documenting a wedding together is our idea of a perfect date.

 

 

My patronus is a fox and I'm in Griffindor. I would have pegged myself as a Ravenclaw, but you know how it is.

-

Food is kind of a big deal to me. I'm not above reveling in some Five Guys fries, but a tasting menu with a wine pairing is my idea of heaven.

-

Also CAKE.

-

I am a bibliophile and love all books, but fantasy and sci-fi will always have my heart.

-

Everything is better with a dog. Especially weddings.

-

I love making photos (surprise, surprise). My favorite photos are the ones that tell a whole story all by themselves. One instant that holds so much life contained inside it. I'm pretty sure it's straight up magic.

 

I'm an active duty SGT 1st Class in the US Army. I've deployed to the Middle East twice in my career.

-

You might hear Misty call me "DJ Natey Nate," but that's not because I was ever a DJ. It's actually a nickname from our own bachelor/bachelorette party over ten years ago.

-

I prefer hard cider to beer. (Yes, Misty also judges me harshly for this.)

-

I'm a former ice skating competitor and coach. Now I'm teaching our oldest son to skate so that he can take up hockey.

-

If I stay in the house for 24 straight hours it makes me crazy.

-

I'm allergic to cats. But we have one. It sleeps in our bed. Marriage is sacrifice.

-

I love finding new ways to tell a wedding story through video. It's a medium with limitless possibilities and I never stop learning.

YOU WANT US ON YOUR TEAM IF:

You want someone obsessed with your wedding. We love weddings. Like, a lot. Maybe an excessive amount. You be the judge.
-
You enjoy jokes of medium quality and people who laugh excessively at them.
-
You are looking for someone who will insert themselves into your family on your wedding day and become besties with everyone there.
-
You want emotional photos and video of your amazing wedding day as it REALLY happened to treasure forever.

YOU MIGHT *NOT* WANT US IF:

You're looking for "just" a photographer or "just" a videographer. We are passionate about your love story and your wedding. We don't just show up and shoot. We can't! We want to be a resource for you to plan your perfect day, whether that's a big wedding or an intimate adventure with just the two of you. We're here for the whole journey.
-
You don't want to share your cake. Because Misty will be really, really sad if she doesn't get a slice of wedding cake. We'll still love you, but she'll be sad. Then Nate has to stop at the gas station and buy her a Twinkie... it's a whole thing.

Wanna get to know us better?

 

A FEW OF OUR

Meet The Artist

My name is Misty Hudson and I am Folly Photography. As a military spouse and mom to two small children rapid (i.e. unexpected and terrifying) change is an inevitable part of my life. I know first hand that beautiful, irreplaceable, every day moments pass us by so quickly that their true value is often realized only in hazy recollection. I believe that something that seems ordinary, like the look between a couple as they walk side by side, or the way a toddler holds his daddy’s hand so tightly, is actually precious and deserves to be frozen in time, cherished always, and passed on to future generations. My passion is story telling through photographic and video art that is vibrant, emotional, and natural.

When I don’t have a camera glued to my face I love to read books of every genre (though I generally am more on the “Lord of the Rings” end of the spectrum) and to eat pastries of every flavor. My minor obsession with cake may or may not, in fact, be a large part of why I love weddings so much. I am also a camping, fishing, and hiking enthusiast and that’s often what my family of four plus two dogs can be found doing in our free time. While military life poses its challenges it also offers us an ever-changing backdrop to explore (and, of course, photograph)! My family is my constant inspiration and I feel incredibly blessed to not only be sharing my life with them but also to be sharing in the lives of the families who hire me to photograph them.

So, let’s meet for coffee (or cake, did I mention I like cake?) and chat about how we can tell the story of the next amazing chapter in your life together!

Wish you could ask me a few more questions right now? Wish granted. Check out this post with my answers to the five best questions when hiring a wedding photographer.
