Romantic wedding photography offering both digital and film in NJ, NY and beyond.
My name is Chelo (pronounced like the instrument), I am a daughter of Dominican immigrants, and I was born and raised in NYC. I had the good fortune of an arts education at Laguardia HS for music & arts and the performing arts, as was graced again as a student at NYU with the opportunity to tinker with film photography. Up until that point, I never had access to 35mm cameras or darkrooms, and the experience profoundly changed my life.
I didn't venture into a career in photography right away, but in 2008, and after studying under various photographers, I began photographing weddings and portraits professionally.
My work has been published in The Knot, MSN, NJ Bride, Catalyst Co, and more.
