My most important job as your photographer is to tell the story of your wedding day while making you and your family and friends comfortable.
I believe the more comfortable you are, the better your pictures will be.
My typical client loves their family + friends over anything. Always, always. They value time spent together, and are able to appreciate the quieter moments in their relationships, that strung together, share a story of deep love.
They appreciate beautiful photography, art and design. Someone who lets me do what I do best, and trusts my many years of experience in the industry. Whether you are the most camera-shy person or the biggest ham, there is no cookie-cutter approach to every client.
I will get you comfortable in a way that is best for you.
As a Queer Mexican-American woman, I pride myself on being a welcoming + inclusive photographer + human being and embrace everyone. I am so happy you are here to view my work, stay as long as you’d like and please feel free to leave a comment or share any posts!

Karyn and Yury’s magnificent summer wedding at the Lord Thompson Manor was, well, MAGNIFICENT! Their wedding is also my first foray back into blogging my weddings after a brief hiatus from March of 2021 while I redid my entire website this Spring + Summer. Telling the story of my couples through their photographs is something […]

Katie and Pete’s summer engagement session at The Wadsworth Mansion in Middletown CT went ahead despite the crazy rain we were promised, and I am so happy it did. Mother Nature sure delivered the much needed rain but also left us completely alone on the grounds of the majestic Wadsworth Mansion. We got to leisurely […]
Photographing Hartford City Hall elopements are very quickly becoming one of my specialties and most favorite ways to work! As a native to the Hart Beat, as we affectionately call it here, I love showing others how beautiful the capital city truly is. The architecture is super diverse with a collection of historic beauties mixed […]

Paul was the first client I zoomed with when the pandemic first started in the Spring of 2020. We discussed her wedding at The Pavilion at Crystal Lake in Middletown CT on that call, and got completely immersed in the details. We laughed, so hard, chatted about the most random things and just got to […]
Central Park is one of the most iconic, if not THE most iconic park in the WORLD. It’s never lost on me how lucky I am to live so close to it! When my clients Adarsha and Jeremy wanted to do their winter engagement session at Central Park I was more than excited to take […]

Danielle and Jake’s rustic winter wedding at The Barns at Wesleyan Hills in Middletown CT was on a super chilly day. We didn’t let that stop us one bit because Danielle and her ladies came prepared with warm winter wraps so that we could do photos outside! As soon as the ladies showed up in […]
A winter Lord Thompson Manor wedding was the PERFECT was to end my 2021 wedding season! I met Jenn and Shawn last Spring as they were in full planning mode for their winter Lord Thompson Manor wedding. There was so much to decide on, and the choices were plentiful. The good thing is, the […]

Stephanie and Adam’s winter wedding at Mamaroneck Yacht Club in Mamaroneck NY was a long long LONG time in the making. I’m not just talking about covid delays here, although they had their fair share! They have been together off and on since high school, their lives intertwined in lots of beautiful ways, as […]
A Goodwin Hotel wedding in Hartford CT, filled with modern white details, gorgeous florals and the happiest couple is the BEST way to spend a Saturday for me! I LOVE my hometown of Hartford CT so much. The venue options here are really unique and beautiful and tap into the rich history that Hartford has. […]

Taylor and Ben’s autumn wedding at The Fields at Van Wilgen’s Grande Center in North Branford CT could not have been on a more perfect day. I know I say that a lot, and hopefully I am not jinking myself now by saying it again, but GUYS it was so true! Down to the […]
