I’m Tania del Carmen, and my passion is capturing authentic, emotional and poetic moments. Why? Because I enjoy celebrating love through images.

I'm committed to not only documenting your wedding day, but also creating a collection of beautiful and compelling images that will tell the whole story.  I enjoy capturing the unnoticed moments and exploring unexpected perspectives that make every relationship unique.


One of my favorite photographs from my own wedding is an image of my husband and I looking at Polaroids of the day.  I was blessed to have our closest friends, who happen to be photographers, capture our day.  The ability of images to bring back those forgotten moments is what I love the most about photography.

I trained as a fine art photographer and obtained my MFA in Photography from the prestigious School of Visual Arts in NYC.  I worked for many years in New York editorial publishing as a photographer, art director, photography editor and producer for The New Yorker, New York Magazine and Departures to name a few.

Every couple is unique.  That’s why I believe wedding photography shouldn't be cookie cutter.  My goal is to capture the essence of your wedding day in the most creative and compelling way possible.  I want to provide you with a lasting legacy for your family.

My photography style has been shaped through my years of experience as an editorial and fine art photographer. I appreciate authenticity, beauty and unexpected moments.  I’m a creative collaborator who'll care for and guide you through the wedding photography process in an approachable yet professional way. 




Are we a match made in heaven?  Then it’s time to book!

Each couple I work with determines their photographic desires and needs for this once-in-a-lifetime experience. 

Every digital proof you receive will be individually remastered and presented to you through a beautifully designed online gallery and a custom slideshow. 

I strongly believe beautiful photographs are meant to be preserved in a way that honors them. That’s why most of my collections include an heirloom-quality album. You may also customize your collection by adding an fine art-quality prints, parent albums and elegantly framed wall art.




I strongly recommend scheduling an engagement session.  It provides you with beautiful portraits for save the date announcements, and gives us a chance to get to know each other even better before your big day.

Engagement sessions are the perfect way to get all of those photo nerves out of the way. I'll guide both of you on how to look your best.  After the session, you’ll feel more at ease, and some couples have so much fun, they forget I’m even there. That’s when I’m able to capture the most magical moments.

After the session, you’ll receive a private online gallery of images to download and share with friends and family, or to use for a save-the-date card, or other wedding announcements.




Eight weeks before the big day, I’ll start making sure that we’re completely prepared and ready for your wedding!  I'll help you create a custom timeline to ensure that you don’t miss out on your dream wedding photos and provide you with handheld guidance on what we'll need to capture the most gorgeous moments together. 

A week before the wedding we'll have a final run-through to confirm and tweak your photography-friendly wedding day!




It’s time to have fun, relax and let me take care of you! I believe it’s important to capture the full story of your wedding day, which is why I strongly suggest to all my couples to book a minimum of 8 hours.  It may sound like a lot, but trust me -- it goes quickly.  My goal is to take all the traditional shots that every couple needs, but also to capture the unexpected and unnoticed moments that make your day unique. Soon after the wedding day, you’ll receive a collection of preview photographs to share with everyone. 




As soon as your images have been individually remastered, you’ll receive a beautifully designed online gallery and a custom slideshow. When you receive the above, you’ll have the opportunity to relive all those beautiful moments.

After, we’ll begin the design and customization process of your wedding album. You'll treasure the unique collection of images that you’ve selected to be incorporated in a beautiful, heirloom-quality album.  


You deserve the absolute best. That's why I want to make sure I am the right choice for you.Please reach me by phone or email to set up a consultation, or simply ask a few questions.
