Hi! I'm Chelo. I grew up in NYC, and I live and work as an artist full-time.
I'm Latina. I pray. 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. Photographs are so important…documenting the way we live with photographs is so important. I look back on photos of my boys each year and I am grateful.
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.
