I am a fine art destination wedding photographer based in NYC. With an artful and lifestyle approach to photographing weddings, I strive to capture the emotion behind a wedding day, tell a story and create beautiful images.

I appreciate the nostalgia in all things vintage, including photographing with real film cameras (as well as digital).

Currently based in NYC and seasonally in California, I specialize in destination weddings worldwide and will gladly travel to any location for a wedding celebration. Read less

Carmen is amazing!! So helpful, professional and friendly with an amazing eye for beautiful photos. I am so pleased with all of my photos from my wedding!! I couldn't have asked for more, nor would I have changed a single thing. Carmen was able to really capture the atmosphere of the venue and the emotion of the entire occasion. It was so special having her there by my side the entire time, helping me with all the little details-she even carried my bag to the venue! Such a sweetheart!! I would recommend her services to anyone really looking to capture all the small, special moments of any event!

I really can't say enough about Carmen. We turned to her after being totally burned by our first photographer. Photography was one thing that really mattered to me for our wedding and we chose a photographer early in our planning. When we had to start looking again less than 6 months before our wedding, I was really worried we wouldn't find anyone still available who was up to our standards.

We were incredibly lucky that Carmen was free on our wedding date. We met and she immediately put us at ease. We discussed her style, what we would get, how we'd plan the timeline of the day, and more. We did an engagement session to start to make sure we all would get along well, and she helped make the session relaxed and even fun (a far cry from our first experience). Our pictures were posted quickly and we loved them. We immediately booked her for our wedding date. As the date approached, we worked on a VERY detailed schedule to make sure we got all the family and bridal party pictures that were important to us.

Unfortunately, the hair and make up people worked incredibly slowly and ignored our timeline (dawdling on their phones and gossiping...). This ate away at our time for our first look and family pictures, but Carmen was very calm and reassuring that we'd get all the important pictures, which she did. I was impressed with how she handled the sudden time crunch. I only wish I got to see what she could do with a little more time! But again, this was not her fault at all.

Anyway, our pictures came back & they are fabulous. I've gotten tons of comments from guests on how fantastic our pictures are. The pictures are a great mix of posed, scenic, detailed, & of course, wonderful candid shots.

If anything, I feel guilty I took so long to write this review. It hit me that I hadn't yet when I came home today & had a package from Carmen. Inside was a beautiful box with all our proofs (great quality), a card, & get this, cookies! She's the best!

We had the pleasure of having Carmen Santorelli be our photographer for our wedding. We are very happy with our choice because she is extremely professional and always made us feel comfortable when taking our pictures. We first met Carmen during our engagement shoot at the Plaza Hotel, the Pierre Hotel and Central Park, where she really took the time to get to know us better and talk about some details about our big day. A few days before our wedding she reached out again to talk about details for our wedding; we had some very specific photos that we wanted and we were comfortable that she understood those and also provided some suggestions of her own without undermining any of our ideas, she also helped us come up with a detailed timeline for the big day. Our wedding was at the St. Regis Hotel and everything went perfectly, she was so professional and took the time to get to know the videographers and make up team, we were very comfortable that the photos were going to turn out great and they did. The photos look amazing, they look like they were made for a magazine and most importantly they are exactly what we wanted. We are so glad to have chosen Carmen to be our photographer for our wedding!

When our original photographer had to have emergency surgery and cancelled the day before our wedding, she set us up with Carmen. Despite not knowing my husband and me or our venue, Carmen did a FABULOUS job taking our photos and put us completely at ease. She was so easy to work with the day-of and was so sweet about stepping in at the last minute. Also, her second photographer, Adeline, was incredibly sweet and did a great job. Our photos came out BEAUTIFULLY and definitely exceeded our expectations. Everyone who saw our photo gallery gushed over the photos and asked where we found our photographer! Another wonderful thing about working with Carmen was that we received a gallery of all our wedding photos a mere 5 days after our wedding day! The online gallery was very user-friendly and could be viewed on any device, which was great for sharing photos with family and friends. She also provided us with a second gallery where we could order professional prints. If you want gorgeous wedding photos and a photographer who is sweet, friendly, and easy to work with, look no further than Carmen! My husband and I highly recommend her! Thanks Carmen! :-)

Carmen is an amazing photographer! My husband and I loved working with her on our engagement pictures and wedding pictures. We eloped in December in New York with only the two of us. We had our engagement pictures done two days before the wedding. I can't thank Carmen enough for all her help prior to the wedding! She is truly a wonderful person and a very talented photographer.

Words cannot express our gratitude for Carmen...she has become like part of our family during the engagement and wedding process. We fell in love with her at a wedding event about 16 months before our wedding, and she was one of the first vendors we booked. We knew after our engagement session that we had made the best decision ever. We loved her personality and photos so much that we even asked her to do a family session before the wedding. On the day of the wedding, she and her staff were nearly invisible, but we received shots of such intimate moments (holding hands, laughter, glances exchanged) that were incredibly breathtaking. She is so conscientious and talented -- a true artist. We are grateful to know her.

Carmen was absolute perfection! She was able to capture our special day exactly how we had envisioned it; in a vintage and elegant way. She and her assistant were wonderful to work with, accomodating, and fun to be around. We also used Carmen for our engagement shoot and had an absolute blast with her. We truly recommend her for whenever you are trying to capture your unforgettable moments- you will not regret it.

Carmen's photos truly captured the spirit of the day and beautifully documented all of the little moments and special details that make each wedding unique.

Carmen is everything you would want in a photographer. Besides taking beautiful and skillful pictures she is incredibly responsive, professional, understanding and thoughtful. We felt very strongly about creating a very intimate environment with a very small circle of family and close friends so having a photographer outside of this circle was something we struggled with. However, Carmen, with her positive energy, true, honest and beautiful smile, mindful motions, and extreme gentleness and care, made her, if only for a few hours, part of this circle, which allowed us to feel safe and comfortable. Every time we look at our pictures it brings us back to that day. We truly could not have imagined a better experience. Thank you so much Carmen!

Carmen has the best personality for this profession! She made us feel comfortable and put us a ease and explained what was going to happen on our wedding day in so much detail that even Larry (who is, admittedly, a bit of a worrier) told me that he knows that I chose the best photographer! She went above and beyond to make us feel taken care of, which we appreciate so much! The photos are breathtaking, and the albums...oh boy...cant ask for more:) Thanks Carmen, you rock!! Larry and I are sending you a huge hug!
