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!

Brianna and Sam were married at one of my very favorite Connecticut venues, The Bee and Thistle Inn in Old Lyme on a gorgeous Saturday in September. It was threatening to rain most of the day, and the skies were gloomy and dark and dramatic, and while I kind of loved the light it was […]
When I heard my friend Chris was engaged I was so excited. Not only for the fact that he has been Hartford’s most eligible bachelor for like, ever, but also because a party by the Peters family is always a good time, and I knew this one would be one for the books. I’ve known […]

When Stacy reached out to me for her wedding to Jenese, I was beyond excited. Not only was I pumped that I was available for it (I was not for her first wedding) but also because she had found her true love. I knew it as soon as I saw them both together. They just… […]

This Branford House wedding with the crazy talented ladies that are Jubilee Events was so filled with beauty and amazing-ness I had to do a two-part blog post! Because, I simply could NOT fit all of the details and emotion into one post without feeling like I watered down the whole experience! I officially met […]

After fifteen years of photographing weddings, I have come to the conclusion that intimate weddings are something super special. A small, curated group of the most meaningful members of your life, all there supporting your choice to join your life to your partners life, just gives me the feels. Each person is hand picked […]
