Capturing Moments, Creating Memories

Hey there! I'm Tonya,  your go-to wedding storyteller based in Fairfield County, CT. From the cozy corners of New England & The Hudson Valley to the vibrant energy of NYC, I'm here to turn your love into everlasting moments.

 

Documentary with an Editorial Flair

My photography combines the authenticity of a documentary approach with the polished elegance of editorial aesthetics. I don't just capture images; I craft visual stories that unfold with every click.

 

Digital and Film

Embracing the best of both worlds, I weave the modern clarity of digital with the timeless charm of film. It's not just about the pixels—it's about the emotion, the grain, the nostalgia that only film can bring.

 

Connection is Key

For me, it's not just about taking pictures; it's about forging genuine connections. Your story is unique, and I want to understand it, feel it, and translate it into images that resonate with your essence.

 

Intentional Composition, Timeless Results

Every frame is meticulously composed, every angle chosen with purpose. I believe in the power of intentional composition to create images that stand the test of time—a legacy of your love story that will be cherished for generations.

 

Colloboration is Key

Your vision matters. I'm not just a photographer; I'm your creative partner. Let's collaborate, dream, and bring your ideas to life. Your wedding day is your canvas, and together, we'll paint a masterpiece. 

 

Embracing Timelessness

In a world of fleeting trends, I hold onto the timeless. My goal is to deliver a collection of photos that not only reflect the beauty of your day but transcend the limits of time, evoking the same emotions decades from now.

 

Let's embark on this visual journey together, where your love takes center stage, and every image is a chapter in your unique story.

If you’re looking for someone to take BADASS, breathtaking- photographs then Tonya is your girl. We had our engagement pictures & wedding pictures taken by her and we couldn’t be happier with how everything came out. She made us feel comfortable, and made sure she captured every single moment and detail from our special day. We highly recommend Tonya and we’ll definitely contact her again for future milestones!

Picking a good photographer is always crucial as the memories last forever. Working with Tonya was the best decision we could ever take! Being the people who are not comfortable posing in front of a camera, me and my fiancé were really anxious before our shoot. But the moment we met Tonya, she just made us feel at ease. She made us so comfortable and let us be ourselves. And we didn’t realize how the 45 minutes passed by. At that time, all we knew was that we had fun. And within 48 hours, Tonya shared a teaser of our shoots and the pics were mind blowing. Being an artist myself, I am very particular about frames, editing, angles, light setting etc. And we loved every bit of it. By the next week we had the entire album, and we just couldn’t shortlist the pics for our save the date invite. And the countless compliments we got from everyone :) !!Being someone who is very conscious about her own pictures, I was surprised to see that I could look so natural and good in pictures. I can safely say these were my best clicks so far. Tonya has her own style Of setting up the frames and editing which we had liked from her profile on instagram and if you like that, I would highly recommend you to go with her. We couldn’t have asked for anything better and she exceeded our expectations in every possible way.

One of the vendors we were most anxious about getting right is the photographer - we do not consider ourselves particularly photogenic (there are mannnnny unflattering pictures of both of us floating around) and neither are naturally comfortable in front of a camera. Tonya might have magical powers because she made us look and feel like models - both during our engagement session and our small elopement. From the outset, Tonya was friendly, comforting and professional and very responsive. She makes a point to get to understand your goals and make sure her style of shooting and editing matches your vision. I know she also takes great care in not over-booking herself so she can provide consistently high service and this really shows in the quality of her work and attention to detail. Our pictures are amazing and we will treasure them. Beyond being an awesome photographer, Tonya went truly above and beyond to help us find a perfect location for our engagement shoot and even to offer recommendations for new wedding venues when we had to downsize our event (thanks Covid...). Her guidance, reassurance and overall positivity helped make a really stressful situation less scary and we are so grateful. We can’t wait to work with her again next year (fingers crossed for that vaccine!!!) when we hold our larger reception. If you are looking for a great photographer who truly values her clients, look no further than Tonya!
