Photographer, Videographer, Educator

Hi! I'm Lin Pernille [pur-NIL], the owner and lead photographer & videographer of Lin Pernille LLC. I’m based in Hudson Valley, NY, just north of NYC and North Jersey, but I'll travel just about anywhere for a wedding!

I fell in love with wedding photography when I shot my first wedding at 18 years old. I quickly realized that weddings combined every genre of photography that I loved: photojournalism, still life, portraiture, fashion, and beauty. When I was 20 years old, during my junior year in college, I knew that I had found my passion and decided to officially incorporate my photography business. 

When I’m not shooting, editing, or teaching, I’m probably trying out a new keto recipe, redecorating my house, binge watching a docuseries, or hiking a local trail with my boyfriend Corrado. 

There’s no greater honor than to be able to photograph a couple’s happiest day, and for that reason I take my job very seriously. I will always strive to capture the mood, style, and all the important moments to the best of my abilities, while being attentive yet unobtrusive, and making the couple feel comfortable and calm throughout the whole day.

I’m very grateful to be able to do what I love and I can’t wait to share more special days with more unique couples! Feel free to connect with me on social media – I love getting to know my clients!

the story behind

– Cara + Brian

“Lin is friendly, professional, efficient, the most patient (and understanding) person on the planet, and such a talented photographer! She was so organized and detail-oriented from our first interaction, and everything was so personalized. We could not be more thrilled with the final photos. They perfectly captured everything about our wedding day.”

– Kristen + Sacha

“Lin fit right in with my bridal party. Her attitude throughout the entire process meant everything to me… she was positive, kind and professional which made everything seem so easy and relaxed. It felt as if she was simply a good friend that just happened to be great at photography. This calmed my wedding day nerves tremendously.”

– Katie + Chris

“Throughout the planning Lin was responsive and flexible. She met all of my needs, specifications and then some! The day of the wedding, Lin and her assistant were extremely professional and non-intrusive, but still kept my unruly crowd on task when necessary. I couldn't have asked for a better photographer.”

– Maj + Anthony

“Hiring Lin was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! She is incredibly sweet and genuinely cares for all the couples she shoots for. Lin does a great job of making you feel at ease and bring out natural smiles and joy in pictures. I don't consider myself very photogenic, but Lin was able to capture so many pictures I will be thrilled to display for years to come.”

Think we're a great fit?
