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!

Katya and Neal’s epic wedding at Saltwater Farm Vineyard in Stonington CT yesterday was heaven-sent. There were cherubic adorable little flower girls and ring bearers floating around angelically all day, and an abundance of romantic and ethereal details that set the tone for their wedding day! I have known Katya forever- since she was in […]

Christina and Ryan’s Greek meets Irish wedding at the InterContinental Boston (in, you guessed it, Boston) was filled with color and family and THAT GOWN! and just all of the things that make doing what I do as a photographer soul-fulfilling. Christina and Ryan’s obvious love for their families and the hustle and bustle of […]
Here is a quick peek from yesterday’s CRAZY FUN wedding of Mia + Brian at The Riverview in Simsbury, CT. There were tears, and so many funny antics by the kids AND the adults, I couldn’t stop laughing and saying out loud ‘is this really happening’? It was such a pleasure being welcomed back into […]

The Tyrone Farm wedding of Jessie and Zack in Pomfret CT was the stuff that my dreams are made of! Romantic, beautiful, with every little touch point thought of… I was in pure heaven from the moment that I showed up on property until I left! Jessie did her research, and was relentless in her […]
Real talk time! I’ve been struggling with social media these past few years and it’s affect on our perception of what’s actually real in people’s lives. Love it or hate it, the reality is that with my job, I have to partake in it, and for the most part, I actually really enjoy how I […]

The Bee and Thistle Inn, in Old Lyme CT hosted Annie and Chris’ wedding and was one of the most emotional weddings I have ever photographed. Maybe it was the connection I made with Annie before, or maybe it was watching the love and adoration that Annie and Chris had for one another during their […]
Yesterday’s wedding at the Harold Pratt House in New York was SO MUCH FUN!! I adore Zack and Polly (they were my rainy day Hartford engagement session that I posted on my insta story about!) and just knew after their engagement session with me in the rain and cold, that we would be fine on […]

The Copper Beech Inn provided inspiration for our creative collaboration with industry friends. It is one of my favorite favorite things to do. I can’t stress that enough! We are given a blank slate, essentially, and then a design direction, and then the green light flashes and we all retreat into our collective creative corners […]
Liz and Maya’s wedding at Red Maple Vineyard was perfection on every level: from the giddy + happy wedding party (not to mention FUNNY!) to the perfect weather, to the many many gorgeous places for portraits (wow wow wow!) and all wrapped up in their families and friends love and support. It was a day […]

When Kat and I FaceTimed for our first meeting, I felt like we could stay and chat all day, despite her business as a Landscape Designer at her company, Staghorn NYC, in full bustle all around her. She was so passionate about what they were planning for their day, and passionate about securing a photographer […]
