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

For several years I had followed Carmen Santorelli Photography on blogs, Facebook, and several online magazines/forums. As a photographer I have completely idolized her work, it is surely in the top of the nation’s best wedding FINE ART photographers. All I can say is that Carmen has given me the best wedding gift anyone could ever ask for. Lots of brides have great photos from their wedding day but we have fine art photographs that will remain in our family for several generations to come. They are timeless and filled with emotion! Carmen was so great at communicating through the entire planning process. She even helped make our timeline for the day in order to have the most optimal lighting for portraits. Carmen was easily the BEST decision we made for my wedding. She blew us away with her careful attention to all the details, her incredible talent, and above all, the kind and beautiful person she is.

When my husband and i were first looking for a wedding photographer, we had a specific style in mind.
I've always loved the soft and romantic style, with lots of natural lighting, and so we spent months searching for a photographer with that in mind. The one thing we loved most about Carmen's work, was her ability to capture some of the most natural emotions on film. We are actually very camera shy and often times, we come out looking really awkward in photographs. But Carmen really helped us focus and be more ourselves.

My husband and I are not really wedding people, so we didnt really spend alot of time planning the theme, details, and timelines. In fact we waited until the last minute (the last day in fact) to just let things happen! :p
Carmen reached out to us almost monthly (she really could have been my coordinator as well!), asking us if we needed any help, giving us ideas, and references. She was extremely patient and professional throughout the whole process!

On our wedding day, everything just happened so quickly, that I dont even remember the details of that day. But when Carmen finally sent us the photos, I was almost in tears. She captured the the details and memories of our day so beautifully. Carmen truly is an amazing artist!

Simply the very best!!!~~~

Apart from the GOREGOUS photos she took, Carmen is such a warm and pleasant person to work with.
She made us and our guests feel totally at home. We wanted a small wedding with just close family and friends and she helped create such a beautiful and intimate atmosphere. Carmen went above and beyond all expectations! She was so resourceful and so creative.

Also, before the wedding day, she made us feel so comfortable about what to expect in terms of photography. She helped us pick out the best locations to take portraits (of my husband and me) and to take group photos with family and friends. I loved how thorough and organized she was.

We are SOO happy with our wedding photos.
They came out so natural and perfectly captured our emotions during the day.
They are truly the sort of photos that we dreamed of having :)

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!

Carmen was a pleasure to work with! Her photos are AMAZING! We can't get enough compliments from not only our wedding day photos but from our engagement e-session she did with us as well. She is very professional, arrives on time, prompt to respond to any questions I had leading up to and even after our wedding. We got our photos back SO QUICKLY and she was super helpful and quick about getting our album together. Everything was so seamless with Carmen and we highly recommend her! Looking forward to using her for future events! :)

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! :-)
