My fiance and I were looking for a photographer who could strike a nice balance between a journalistic and editorial look, capturing our families and guests beautifully while keeping it real. From the start, I loved the look of Yaritza's work and thought she would be perfect. Thankfully, she was available and was so easy to work with. She was great about communicating with us, getting a good read on us as a couple and what we were looking for, scheduling an engagement shoot, and finding a great second photographer, Masao, to join her, who was a perfect complement. Our engagement photo shoot was a great way to break the ice, and Yaritza made sure to put us at ease, make it fun, as well as experiment with lots of different techniques and perspectives. The day of the wedding, she and her 2nd photographer were great to work with- both unobtrusive, but also very creative, flexible and open to our ideas and requests. We got our photos about 4 weeks later via a link and dedicated webpage which we could share with our guests, and we were sent a thumbdrive with over 1,000 great shots. From start to finish, we have been so glad we were able to work with her, and LOVE our photos, from the classic shots, to the striking artful ones, to candid moments of friends and family.

My husband and I are so thrilled we chose Yaritza to photograph our wedding! She captured our day so perfectly...not a detail went unnoticed; smiles, flowers, decorations that my mom spent hours on that I didn't get to see that day. Going through the pictures with my husband, we found ourselves reminiscing in "ooh's" and "aah's", happy tears and some giggles :-) Yaritza not only has a great talent, she is so easy to work with, fun to talk to, and always on her A game. She even surprised us with a second photographer!! Do yourself a favor and stop looking for your wedding photographer. Contact Yaritza and lock her in for your big day. You WILL NOT be disappointed...we promise :-)

I could not have asked for a better experience than the one we had with Yaritza. From out engagement photos to wedding photos, everything came out so beautifully. Yaritza has a great eye for composition and color, and also has a talent for catching the best candids. Every special moment that we were hoping to catch are now in frames in our home.

Let me start with: 1. I hate having my picture taken 2. I hate wearing dresses 3. I'm an unusual bride and 4. I'm an over planner

Yaritza is awesome. She is exactly who I needed to be taking photos on my wedding day - she has the perfect demeanor, sincerely IS like a photo ninja and I got exactly what I wanted: a set of photos that I will cherish forever!

To be honest, if I hadn't found someone like Yaritza I would have most likely not had a photographer! It was important to me that the person in this position understood me a little bit and went with my flow. I am confident that Yaritza could 'get' anyone and I full recommend investing in her talents for your wedding day! You won't regret it.

Yaritza is professional, understanding and really listened to what I wanted. She was responsive when I was losing ground right before the event and she went above and beyond to make things work for us. Yaritza Yaritza we love you!

Yaritza is a very talented photographer and great person. We found her through friends that used her for their wedding a few years back. Since then, we've seen many of her wedding and engagement photos. We knew once we were searching for a photographer that we needed someone who would be able to capture the day like we were living it again. We weren't hiring a videographer so choosing the right photographer meant everything to us. We had researched many photographers but always kept going back to Yaritza. Although we were reluctant to take engagement photos, we were very happy we did because we got to spend a few hours with Yaritza and got some fun shots of ourselves. We're extremely happy that we chose Yaritza Colon Photography.

Yaritza was an excellent choide for my wedding photos. A friend of mine had used her to photograph her wedding, so I knew that I wanted her for mine as well. She is professional and very responsive! No emails or phone calls go unreturned. At the wedding, I had no idea where she was but was able to capture every moment perfectly. She is not in your face and lets the moments happen naturally!

I met Yaritza by being photographed as a bridesmaid and guest at several friends’ weddings. As soon as I was engaged she was one of the first e-mails I sent out- I knew we just had to be sure she was available! She is extremely professional, beyond creative in her work and so easy to work with. Neither my fiancé (sorry) or myself are very photogenic but she was able to work with his constant blinking and my awkward smile! We didn’t give her very much direction since we totally trusted her artistic view over ours but it was almost as if she read our minds! I have been in other weddings where the bride was completely annoyed by the photographer----Yaritza almost has a calming effect on you! We had not one but two medical emergencies within five minutes of each other and after giving us some time to make sure everyone was okay she pulled us away from the scene to take photos outside. I don’t know if it was on purpose but it worked wonders in that stressful moment! Our package came with not only an engagement session but a fun photo “booth” in which she provided props for our guests---- the pictures are absolutely hysterical and you can tell our guests really enjoyed themselves! There was never any doubt we made the right choice with Yaritza and we hope we will have other reasons to continue to work with her in the future.

She really caught the moments in every shot, and her photography will make my wedding day last a lifetime.

Yaritza was AHMAYZING during our wedding, she got some amazing shots that we can't even figure out where she was standing to take them! She should really label her self as "Wedding Photographer/Ninja" and make Chuck Norris her assistant (because really, she one-ups him in ninja skills.)
I would have never expected a wedding photographer to go as far as she did to help on the day of the wedding - I realized I didnt put my thumbprint on our guestbook, so I needed to run out of the bridal suite and upstairs to do so - Yaritza was my shield so all of the other guests wouldn't see me before the wedding (and got some sweet pictures of the guest book while she was at it - make that a "multi-tasking ninja")
During the photograph hour after the ceremony, she kept the energy up, and got some amazing candid shots of our wedding party relaxing after the chaos of the morning was starting to end.
I can't thank Yaritza enough for being more professional than I thought was humanly possible, and so responsive to helping us out during the day! I couldn't think of who I needed pictures of, so she took control for me and started rounding people up. Perfection!
I would recomend Yaritza to anyone getting married, having babies, engaged - anything. I have been recomending her for 2 years now, and that was before the wedding!
To sum up everything - Best.Photographer.Ever.

Yaritza provided us with exceptional photography services. She went over and above her call of duty, and we felt very comfortable throughout our whole wedding planning, along with some special pictures we wanted on our special day. During our engagement shoot she made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera by making us laugh. On our wedding day we hardly even saw her and her second photographer during our ceremony and the reception which is a very good thing. No one wants a photographer that’s “in the way”. We were VERY impressed with how our pictures came out for both our engagement and wedding pictures, the way that she captures the special moments and attention to detail is breath taking. We would 110% recommend Yaritza Colon Photography to any couples out there newly engaged for engagement pictures and absolutely for wedding pictures. These pictures will last a lifetime and we will definitely use her for any professional photography needs in our future. Thank you so much Yaritza for making our day even more memorable!!!

Yaritza helped make our wedding day dreams come true and she captured every moment perfectly! We barely saw her, but she literally captured every important moment of the day. She's very sneaky like that! :) Looking through all of the pictures was like reliving the entire day and brought both us and our parents to tears. Thank you so much for putting on such an awesome contest! And thank you SO much for helping us make our wedding day completely unforgettable! <3

Yaritza did a wonderful job capturing my big day. She went above and beyond, and helped coordinate and plan (very) last minute details. She is very professional and good at kepeing things on track, but she's always very patient, kind, and funny- so it feels like you're working with an old friend! She was great with communicating with us- all questions were answering in a timely fashion. And the pictures were absolutely stunning! We are so happy with how they turned out! I would recommend this vendor to any of my friends/family.

After extensive research on wedding photographers I found my perfect match in Yaritza. I don't even remember how I found her website but I am happy I did. She takes amazing photos and her price was the best I saw in the greater Boston area. While my wedding was in Boston, MA I live out of state. Since we weren't able to meet in person we spoke a few times using Skype. On the day of the wedding she was early and remembered all of the group shots that I wanted. Yaritza also put together a very nice photo album for us including moments that I don't even remember but now can share with my children to come.

Thanks for being you Yaritza.

Yaritza did a fantastic job as the photographer for our wedding! She was helpful, flexible and really used her wedding photography expertise to capture great photos. I also like the fact that she did not just take pictures in traditional poses, which helped her capture the excitement, humor and happiness of the day. Moreover, Yaritza was willing to drive my husband, sister and I from our hotel, to the chapel, to the place we had the pictures and over to the reception area! She helped make our day that much more special and now we have fabulous photos to remember it by!

My fiancee and I won a free engagement session with Yaritza this fall. We didn't know her at all, but we liked her pictures, so we thought, oh what the heck, let's just see what happens! She was great! During the session she was very laid back and easy going. She had ideas for poses for us, which was good, since we had no idea what to do at first. Once we relaxed a bit, we came up with some of our own poses, which she was totally fine with as well. Yaritza was super patient the whole time -- we had wardrobe changes, fairly cold weather, and even a location change! The best thing, of course, is that the photos came out wonderfully! I would definitely recommend Yaritza for anyone looking for wedding photography in the Boston area.

She is humble and flexible with her time and she genuinely wants nothing but the best for her clients. She isn't afraid to get creative with her technique and that is what ends up making her work so special, you don't get the 'basics' when you hire Yaritza, you get awe inspiring images!

Thank you for doing such a fabulous job and for doing your part in making our day wonderful and giving us the images to help savor the memory!

It was such a pleasure to work with Yaritza. She is very skilled at what she does. We planned the wedding from Minnesota and Yaritza is an excellent communicator. She answered all of my questions and even Skyped with us one evening. Her pictures were magical and everyone who looks at them is enchanted. She is magic! We barely noticed that she was there during the ceremony and reception. She is quick and gets the shots that she needs without hassling other guests or friends. I would 100% hire Yaritza again for another occasion. She is very sweet and does a fantastic job. She is also a wonderful value, other photographers at her skill level charge much more. Get her before she becomes the number one photographer in Massachusetts!

We could not be happier with the services provided by Yaritza!! We worked with her for our engagement photo session, our wedding ceremony and our reception. She also created a (beautiful) photo-guestbook for us to display and to have our guests sign. Her creativity was not the only thing that set her apart- she also took the time to get to know us and figure out what it was that we were actually looking for in a photographer. She truly was everything that we could have asked for, and then some! She was personable, easy to work with, fun, flexible and very reliable! :) :)

Yaritza Colon is a dream photographer. I recently wrote to Yaritza to express my excitement and gratitude for her work. Here is an excerpt:

"I can't believe all of the amazing moments you have captured here. These photos are incredible! You are overflowing with talent... Thank you also for so generously including those extras."

In that same e-mail, I also said, "What I love most about these photos is that they remind me of so many small moments that I could never have remembered on my own." This is what makes Yaritza's work really special. She is equally skilled at capturing formal poses as well as those on-the-spot moments you will want to remember forever. Her work really gives meaning to the phrase, "A picture is worth a thousand words."

Obviously, Greg and I are so happy with our professional wedding photos and we give Yaritza our highest recommendation. She was so nice to work with and made us feel right at ease in front of the camera. Once the reception got going, we hardly knew that she was there; she moved so seamlessly in and out of the crowd. In a nutshell, we would hire Yaritza Colon again in a heartbeat! We extend to her our sincerest thanks.

Yaritza is the best photographer around. Not only is she very affordable, she goes above and beyond to make your wedding the best day possible. I have been to many weddings where the photographers are constantly in your face to the point where its kind of annoying, but not Yaritza. As my husband put it, she is like a ninja. Thank you so much Yaritza for capturing every special moment of our wedding so we can cherish them forever.

Choosing Yaritza Colon Photography was by far one of the best decisions I could have made regarding my wedding day. Being new at the whole "Wedding Thing" and planning it all completely by myself (with the usual "whatever you think hunny" from the fiance) I was pretty unsure about alot of the choices I had to make, and was very concerned with value and quality. I was more than excited to see my worries melt away from the very first meeting with Yaritza. I knew it would all be Ok... and as any bride planning her wedding knows- THAT MEANS ALOT. From the degree of professionalism, to the amazing quality of my wedding photos, Yaritza Colon Photography absolutely met and exceeded any hopes and dreams I could have had for my wedding photos. Also, Ive been to a few weddings, and always noticed the photographers in the bride and grooms face, injecting themselves into their special day- really making things awkward just for a photo! Well, Yaritza must be a ninja, because although I have to believe she was there from the gorgeous shots she got of my day, I cant say that I remember her in my face awkwardly even once! What a great service and value. Thank you Yaritza Colon Photography!!

Yaritza is the best, hands down. You can tell how much thought and personalization she puts into each of her events. No wedding is the same for her and that is evident through her beautiful photography. We couldn't believe how fast the pictures were up online after my sister's wedding. And once we got to see them we couldn't have been happier with them. My mom loves her too - I think she kissed poor Yaritza a few times throughout the wedding day haha. Over the years her work has just gotten better and better and I am always referring her to the many friends I know who are planning weddings because I think she is SO worth it!

-MOH for my sister's wedding

Had a lot of great ideas for photos that didnt even cross my mind! Didnt even notice her through the ceremony and reception, which is a very good thing. My HUSBAND =) and I both love our photos very much. We feel they really represented our day well, and we love her style. We got our album in last week, and will probably order a couple more for our parents. Very pleased!

I thoroughly enjoyed having Yartiza be my photographer. she made me feel at ease. With all the other planning I needed to do it was nice to have some one that took charge and I didn't have to worry about anything. She is so easy going and laid back it was so fun to work with her. She came up with some amazing poses for me and my wedding party and let us give feedback and suggestions. I absolutely treasure the pictures she took on my wedding day and the ones she took after my wedding and will have them always. I will definitely be telling others about her work. Thank you!!

Seeing how the photographs captured the ideas she had is great and we have already received many compliments on them. I feel she really listened to what we wanted. Very laid back and easy to work with. Would not have done anything different - Highly recommended. Thanks!

yaritza at half my time photography was a pleasure to work with! planning a wedding can be so stressful, and it was refreshing to have at least one aspect of the wedding be so easy. yaritza was fantastic about coming to see us, when we needed to discuss things and we're so busy with other details. with the standard posed shots and candids, i felt that she really captured the spirit of our wedding. we didn't have a videographer, but with her pictures, i feel like all the important moments and aspects of the wedding were documented. she was so nice and accommodating. i absolutely love looking at our photos from the wedding! her work is very reasonable, and so great for those trying to budget for a wedding. i recommend her highly. thanks yaritza!

At first I considered not having a photographer for my wedding, until my friend told me of the one she used for her daughters Sweet 15. I got married on a lake, and the day started out sunny but then got really cloudy by the time it was supposed to start. I thought that our photos were going to look crummy due to the gloomy weather conditions. I got my album a little more than a week later and was pleasantly surprised. They were clear, and the scenery did not look as bad as I thought it was going to! I am very happy we had someone who was able to work with those circumstances. She was great.

I highly recommend Half My Time Photography for any photography needs! Yaritza did my wedding and the beautiful pictures will last a life time. She has a keen eye for catching those special moments throughout the day and you barely notice she's around. She's professional and very easy to work with. I'm also very pleased with her editing skills and we received the wedding album by the time we had returned from our honeymoon! Thank you Yari and best wishes!

I decided to switch to Yaritza Colon Photography about 2.5 months before our Reception. Her quality of work was very impressive and I loved her attention to detail. She has always been quick to respond to any questions or concerns. I knew I made the right choice in switching to her services the first time we met because she noticed that my son's eye color was gray with brown in the middle, while mine is more green (it was refreshing to have someone note this as everyone says my son's eyes are blue).

We did not have the traditional Wedding and Reception event, as we had eloped earlier in the year and were having a very laid-back, low-key Reception. Yaritza was great at working with us before the event and during. She captured all the small details that were handcrafted and we made ourselves (a decorative metal piece behind the head table that my father made, the centerpieces that we made, our wedding cake that my mother made, etc). My husband and I are definitely not photogenic people and she was really great at directing us and positioning us so that we got some really nice shots.

I am beyond ecstatic that our prints and cd are ready for us well before I thought they would be- only 1 week after the event! She even threw in a bonus CD for us that is an unbelievable steal. She is absolutely a pleasure to work with. And as others' have said, she is completely non-intrusive with ninja-like qualities. :)

The only hang up I had was that I am nursing my son and she was uncomfortable taking a picture of him nursing. I can completely understand that, and it had slipped my mind to bring it up beforehand, but we did get 1 nursing shot that I am pleased with. I just wish I had of thought to mention it beforehand so that we might have ended up with a few more. I don't fault her for this, as it can be uncomfortable for some. I just felt she was a bit off-put by the request to capture the moment.

Yaritza has a great personality, attention for detail, and was an absolute pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her to anyone. She has great packages and is willing to work with you to create a custom package for your event. I would love to work with her again in the future.

Thank you so much for taking the time out to write such a great review! It was great working with you and Chris!

Regarding Nursing, I am not uncomfortable with it at all and was not uncomfortable at your wedding. I'm so sorry you felt that way. I wish I would've known beforehand that you wanted me to photograph you while you were nursing, as it is not a common request.

Yari is very creative and professional. My wedding guests commented on her professionalism and flexibility. I was two hours late! And still she was upbeat and taking pictures of the guests to keep them busy while I arrived.
I had a destination baseball-themed wedding and she remembered all the crazy pictures I asked her for, and she added a few more (like me tagging the groom on first base and us kissing at home while the umpire/minister signaled 'safe'). When I got the wedding book I was blown away and asked her for two more. Two thumbs up!!

Yaritza did an amazing job and captured all of our very special moments at the wedding! As I read in reviews before we booked, she was like a photography ninja; she blended perfectly into the crowd and still managed to get the job done well. Definitely not an in-your-face photographer which is exactly what we wanted. She managed to catch so many fun, touching and hilarious candid moments and that is what makes the whole album reflect us perfectly and feel more natural!

One thing - I think she may be a little shy (who isn't in a room full of strangers?) but she seemed to warm up after the guys had some time to joke around with her during their getting ready photos. All in all, she was great!

Yaritza was very personable and professional as our photographer. I hardly noticed her all during the ceremony and reception - she was so unobtrusive, which I completely appreciated! But yet the pictures came out fantastic. I am so pleased with the job she did for our wedding and the prices were great too! - absolutely nothing negative to say!
