NY & PA Wedding Photographer.
I capture the magical energy of humans. Every celebration of romance & connection is a unique story waiting to be told. Photographs are timeless and irreplaceable, they are anchors to the beautiful moments we create together.
In my work you can find, a lot of candid moments filled with emotions. I aim to capture real feelings – be it a radiant smile, tears of joy, a dreamy gaze, or a blur of movement.
My highest goal is to preserve your beautiful moments so they may never fade from your view. Photographs document your life so you can share them with your loved ones.
I’m super easy going. I offer photo guidance when needed so you can relax, have fun, and celebrate yourselves. Feel free to take advantage of my complimentary FREE HEARTS session if you book one of the full-day wedding packages (read more).

“Ich bin ein Berliner.” — Many moons ago I moved to NY with an oversized suitcase and no idea how expensive New York City really was. Thanks to 4 simultaneous part-time jobs (with Tumi, The Body Shop, freelancing makeup artist, and waitress at a sports bar called “The Blind Pig”) I survived the first few months. Not long after and my positive spirit (while waitressing) landed me a position in Samsung’s experiential marketing devision, which much later led to a great job title “Design Strategist of Environments” — so fancy. Meanwhile I paid my way through university to earn my Master’s. I also worked for corporate Architects for some years; I didn’t love it very much but I did love my awesome freelance clients and transitioned to working only with them.
Through a personal project (renovating an old school bus, see instagram below) and lots of good luck led me to move out of Brooklyn in March 2019. I fell in love with an adorable little town in the Hudson Valley, about an hour north of NYC. It was fun to still occasionally commute into Manhattan and Brooklyn for design projects but when COVID-19 (Coronavirus/SARS-CoV-2) hit, all design work disappeared. However, I’m not sad at all, photography fills me up with joy. It’s become a full-time love and I haven’t looked back once! I truly couldn’t feel more fortunate — and this beckons for a big shout out to my good friend and mentor, Jose Almeida, he was the one bringing me into the wonderful world of wedding photography. It’s been great fun to collaborate with him on weddings of all sizes in the free spirited state of Pennsylvania.
Photography has been a part of me ever since I moved across the Atlantic, but wedding photos are something extra special. I feel blessed to be here and to do what I do.
Again, thank you for being curious and reading all this ♡ let’s be in touch and create beautiful moments together.
Much Love, Tlili.
