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!

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 […]

I have a favorite season. FALL. The end! In New England, of course! So when Hilary and Jon said they wanted to do their engagement session during the fall at an apple orchard, I was pumped. Now, I have a confession to make… I have never been apple picking! As a CT native this is […]
When I first met with Emily and Alex about their Belmont Country Club wedding in Belmont MA, they had a problem. They were overwhelmed by all of the choices for photographers out there. At the time we met, they had already talked with other photographers and as far as they were concerned, perhaps I was […]

Getting to explore the Smith College campus in Northampton MA for an engagement session on one of the most gorgeous fall days this year felt like an absolute dream. When Liz and Lisa reached out to me for their engagement session there I was thrilled. First off, I adore Northampton MA so much but I […]
After two years of planning and re planning their Autumn Saltwater Farm Vineyard wedding, my clients Jessica and Mick were FINALLY able to exchange their vows! It’s sadly a story that too many couples can identify with (and wedding professionals!) When their party finally happened the joy and excitement was palpable, along with some […]

A fall Wellfleet Preservation Hall wedding on Cape Cod sounded PERFECT on its own. Add to that the bride- Hannah- is the daughter of one of my most wonderful friends, Kate and it just gets better! Photographing weddings is something I love intensely, which is why I am going strong into my 20th year of […]
