Documentary Wedding & Family Photography

in CT, New England and Beyond

“I Do” is Just the Beginning

Your wedding day is just the first page of a brand new chapter in your life. 

Your wedding day is just the first page of a brand new chapter in your life. You need a photographer to capture your story as it continues to unfold. From your surprise proposal and engagement sessions to your maternity, first birthday and eventually your little one's senior portraits, I'll create photos for you to enjoy now and will be cherished for generations to come.

Hello! I’m Tania

I'm happy you're here!

Since 2005, I've had the honor of capturing life's most significant moments for couples in Connecticut and throughout New England. There is beauty in everyday life—no filters required (but maybe a little editing.) Through wedding photography and family portraits, I'm here to document your milestones for you and your loved ones to treasure. 

New England Wedding Photography

 You've found your best friend, your soul mate and the person you can't imagine doing life without. You've carefully selected the venue, the wedding dress and the florals. It's going to be everything you've ever wanted. Capture every stunning detail of your big day with documentary wedding photography. Relive the emotion of every moment, such as the tears of joy on your parents' faces to the passion of the first kiss. Don’t let a moment slip away!

Lifestyle Family Photography

Find a reason to celebrate every day! Time marches on faster than you'd expect. Don't forget to stop and cherish your family as they are right now. Whether you're celebrating a momentous family occasion, such as a pregnancy or in-home family newborn session, or want to capture the beauty of everyday life with "Day in the Life of" home sessions, let's commemorate your family's story with timeless heirloom photography. Don't forget to bring your pup!

Photojournalistic Milestone Photography

Preserve your meaningful milestones with authentic documentary-style photography. Watch your little girl grow into your wedding dress with "Yes! To Mom's Dress!" annual photos, commemorate the first Holy Communion or celebrate a Bar/Bat Mitzvah. From their first birthday party photos to senior graduation photography, I'd love to be a part of every celebration. 

Give Back with a Mini Session

When I say your furry friend is welcome to the session, I mean it. Animals bring so much joy to our family, and I understand they are a big part of your home (and heart) as well. So let's take our love of animals a step further and make a positive impact together. Now, you can give back to one of my favorite local rescue non-profit organizations when you book a photography mini-session. Reserve your time when they're available—these are only available once a year!

Venue: Salem Cross InnDate: October 1, 2021 As a Connecticut Engagement and Wedding Photographer, 2021 proved to be the busiest.year.ever. This was in stark contrast to 2020, of course, where you could find me in sweatpants 24×7. In all seriousness, so many sessions and weddings transferred to 2021 (and 2022) that I found I was […]
