welcome my dear,

I vow to you, I will take the time to get to know you, take the time to listen to you and take the time to capture you as who you are. I vow to you, that your wedding day makes me as giddy as a school girl, seeing your beautiful dress makes me smile with joy and capturing your first dance brings tears to my eyes. I vow to you, I will photograph your big day with all my heart and soul!

capturing the moments and making them last forever






I got Yael’s name from a friend of a friend. The second we spoke to her she was such a breath of fresh air! She’s so in love with what she does and it shows. She makes you feel so comfortable and like you have been best friends for years! You really do start to feel like family after sharing such a wonderful experience! She did our engagement photos and then of course our wedding and I can’t be more obsessed with how they all turned out! You can really just trust her and on such an important day like your wedding it’s such a relief to have someone you can really count on. She would bend over backwards for you!

Where do I even begin?! From start to finish this girl is AMAZING!!!! Yael was recommended to me by a friend while I was in the process of searching for a photographer. One of the most important things for us was having a great photographer. I began to check out her work and after falling in love with her photography I reached out to her for a consultation. We met as strangers for coffee and left as new friends! We did an engagement shoot with her and were beyond happy with how our session went and how our photos turned out! She is incredible with giving direction and capturing every moment. 

"Best Photographer Ever!!!!!!!!!!!!"

There isn't a single negative thing we could say about Yael, she was SUCH a pleasure to work with on our wedding day! She made sure the day kept to schedule and that my wife didn't have too many panic attacks! Yael is incredibly kind and detail oriented and can always bring out a smile in anyone. If you want someone to photograph your wedding day, look no further. I guarantee Yael looks as much forward to your wedding day as you do, she's the best!

Yael went above and beyond what you'd normally expect from your wedding photographer. We started off getting to know each other during our engagement photoshoot. Yael dropped everything to drive to Brooklyn to shoot at the spot of our choice. She would have hiked a mountain with her camera equipment if we had asked. We had a glorious afternoon and Yael made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera, both of us naturally shy of course. During our wedding day, Yael managed our insanely disorganized family with grace and multiple family and friends asked for her information.
