About Us

We are a local husband and wife team who have lived in the Hudson Valley for 12+ years.

Our passion is to showcase THEIR PASSION.  

Ratsey Photography

We are a home based business located in Hopewell Junction.

Tired of the same green screen/pick a background style sports photos, we saw a gap in the market that we felt compelled to fill.  Our goal is to provide sports portraits that are unique, artistic and fun.  As parents of athletes, we know the love that our kids have for their sports and we want that to be showcased when they step under out lights.

Our sport portrait/media sessions are guaranteed to be an experience for your athlete where their vision and input is welcomed and indulged.

Our approach is simple: great portraits take TIME.  

Over the last few years, we have shifted most of our focus to High School Seniors and Teams.  Our creative style is well known and custom banners have become our specialty.  We design all our templates in house.  We never contract out for photography and when you hire us, you are guaranteed to work directly with us from start to finish.

We are proud to work with local schools, gyms and clubs.  Please contact us to discuss your sports photography needs for your athlete or team.

Ratsey Design

In addition to photography, we provide a full range of graphic design services, custom designed consumer products and business-to-business promotional items.
