One of us is from Brooklyn. The other is from Switzerland. Our love of photography brought us together while studying in Manhattan, and we’ve been shooting together ever since.
For over 9 years we lived together in Basel, Switzerland, where one of us shot commercials and sitcoms, and the other worked in commercial photography. After our second child was born, we returned to America with our hearts set on life in the Hudson Valley. Only 90 miles from New York City yet somehow another world. Mountains, farms, vineyards; artists and entrepreneurs in every small town; and the mighty Hudson River flowing through it all. A great place to shoot weddings and portraits of people looking their finest.
To this endeavor we bring a dual work ethic: Brooklyn indefatigability and Swiss no-nonsense precision. Also an eye for the unique, cultivated by our life abroad and our unwillingness to take the same photo that many other photographers have done before.
We love photography and the adventure of finding new images every time we go out. We also believe that our job is not complete until you have a piece of photo art to hold in your hands, be it one of our hand-crafted albums, a wall-size canvas, or one of our specialty metal prints.
When you hire us, this is what we bring to the table. Along the way, we strive to make things fun and relaxed to bring out your natural emotions in fashion-inspired images you and your family will keep close to your hearts.

Doug is originally from New York City and is the grandson of a photographer who once shot stills of Hollywood movie stars. At a young age, he worked at a commercial photography studio shooting pack shots for the JC Penney catalog. He later studied illustration at the New School and fine arts photography at New York University.
While living with his wife in Switzerland, he worked as a photographer shooting commercial and industrial photos in the city of Basel. Here he photographed a series of images for the city’s mass transit system and stills for a documentary about church bell manufacture in the Alps. This in addition to portraits of Swiss artists, musicians, and educators.
After returning to the United States, Doug founded Duetimage Photography with the goal of bringing to Hudson Valley wedding photography artistic sensibilities acquired while working abroad.
Regina was born in Switzerland. She studied communications at the University of Freiburg and at the Sorbonne. She has worked over 15 years in advertising, directing television commercials for one of Switzerland’s largest retailers, COOP, and Arni Chocolates.
After relocating to the Hudson Valley, Regina returned to her roots in photography to co-found Duetimage Photography. She is deft at photographing on the large and small scale, and is responsible for many of the sweeping wide shots seen in our galleries, as well as the fine detail shots of wedding jewelry.
