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!

A Milford Audubon Society engagement session in Milford CT is one of the most sunset-y beachy spots for a session. When Paula and I chatted about where she was considering for her engagement session location, she said she wanted something with a bohemian feel to it. After chatting with my close friend and amazing CT […]

Intimate weddings are here to stay, and I am fully on board! Jeannette and Matt’s backyard Litchfield wedding was emotional, sweet and I think exactly what they envisioned. when Jeannette and I first chatted she opened up about how little she and Matt enjoyed being photographed. At the same time, they both value photography at […]
Yes. I do indeed photograph families! Ellen and Ken’s Harkness maternity session is beautiful proof of this. I am realizing the more I see past clients of mine with families who don’t come to me for sessions with their families, the more I am realizing that I do not indeed share this enough. I LOVE […]

An opportunity to drive a bit and see another beautiful part of New England is always a yes for me. Courtney and Matt’s Portsmouth engagement session was exactly what I needed to get my season back to the ways of years past. Not that I am in any rush, I have to be honest. If […]
From the moment that I heard that my daughter was going to have her Hartford prom this year, I was ELATED. Not only for the absolute spaz out session we would both have obsessing over gowns and hair styles and nails and shoes and ACCESSORIES OMG. OK, maybe all of that! Mostly, it just felt […]

A downtown Hartford engagement session is the direct way to the very center of my heart! When I met Tricia and Bill we clicked instantly. Tricia has such wonderful energy and when I saw them both together they just made sense. Their care for one another was evident as we poked around my beloved city […]
Jennifer and Jared’s Spring Harkness engagement session in Waterford CT was the perfect semi official start to my 2021 wedding and event season. After many delays and postponements from 2020 it sure feels like the starting bell has gone off and the world as we knew it is back in action. I admit it feels […]

Michelle and Julie’s Aruba wedding this past week was BEYOND. Strap yourselves in, folks this is a looooong post! A few years back, Michelle and I were single together, living our best lives. We met up for happy hours, commiserating about online dating and the duds we were meeting. Until she met Julie! I watched […]
The excitement for their wedding to be at the Red Hat on the River in Irvington NY was the first thing I noticed when I first chatted with Maggie and Dave about their wedding. I was immediately intrigued. While I certainly love working at spaces that host weddings regularly, the opportunity to photograph a wedding […]

My two grooms, TJ and Shawn called me, super excited for their elopement in Hartford this Winter. They knew they wanted to have their dinner at republic at the Linden in Hartford, but weren’t exactly sure where they wanted to have their ceremony. They couldn’t have googled a better photographer for their Hartford elopement, am […]
