About Chelo

Hi! I'm Chelo.

I grew up in NYC, and was a social worker and teacher for many years before pursuing my true love, photography, and living as an artist full time. 

I'm a Latina. I pray daily. I support LGBTQ rights, and I believe that #BlackLivesMatter. I have two lovely boys. Cooking is my hobby followed closely by eating.

I'm really happy doing what I love, and have been photographing weddings and portraits since 2008. I use both digital and film to create my work, which focuses on genuine & natural moments.

I've been published in the Knot magazine, Catalyst Wedding Co, MSN, NJ Bride and more.

It would be great to hear from you!
