"Elvira is simply amazing! Her style of photography is so unique to me, I had rarely seen photos like hers with a sort of whimsical feel to them. She really will make sure that you look great, is punctual, reasonably priced and very pleasant! Suffice it to say, I WILL use her again and truly recommend her, you will not be disappointed."

"Elvira did a beautiful job capturing our wedding this past August. I've looked at the pictures probably about 100 times by now and am in awe each time at the quality and vibrancy of the pictures. She did a great job with both the candid moments and staged shots. I hope we have another reason to work with her soon. Would highly recommend her services to anyone!"

"My husband and I hired Elvira for both our engagement shoot and our wedding. Elvira was fantastic! I loved that she spent time capturing the little moments throughout the night that I wasn't able to see. Not only were our more formal family pictures great, but the candids were spectacular. She has a great eye and was a ton of fun to work with! She was speedy with sending us a few photos right away, which I loved. I highly recommend Elvira!"

"Elvira was an excellent photographer. She captured my elopement at New York City Hall this past July, which also included a surprise reception lunch. She worked well in coordinating the days events, which were pretty off the cuff. Throughout the day we noted how detailed she was in her work. She seemed to capture every moment perfectly and you could tell she had an eye for capturing perfect moment. Overall, it was a wonderful experience working with Elvira - from beginning to end. The quality of the shots and the in-the-moment style captured the essence of the day. Every time I look at my photos, it takes me back to that day in July; and I can see everything I felt that day, and the spirit of the day, were captured beautifully."

"Elvira was absolutely wonderful to work with! She was so easy-going and listened to all of our feedback/questions/requests. She also captured absolutely gorgeous photos from our engagement session and our wedding. She was also able to easily maneuver around random August rainstorms and capture everything we needed despite the crazy weather. We would absolutely work with her again!"

"I spent countless hours researching wedding photographers who would shoot natural and documentary style images. We were so pleased with Elvira's work. I also appreciated the fact that she responded to emails quickly and sent our photos within a few weeks. She even stayed overnight and took pictures the following day of us in the woods and at town hall!"
"Elvira is the best! She captures the mood, the moment, and creates superb memories--all in a calm and reassuring manner. She did such an outstanding job for our son's engagement and wedding (flying to San Francisco for the engagement shoot) that we were eager to have her back for our daughter's engagement and wedding. Elvira's work is flawless--we can't recommend her enough."

"I seriously cannot put into words how happy we were that we chose Elvira to capture our recent elopement in Central Park. Elvira made us feel so comfortable and was such a help on the day when things were getting a little tricky with traffic. She listened to us and what we wanted, and really captured the style we were after. She was super quick sending us through a few shots the next day (not even 24 hours later!) and the turnaround for getting our complete set of photos was pretty quick too, despite how busy she has been recently with all the weddings she has had on! When we received our photographs last week we were soooo happy with how they all turned out. She really is extremely talented and is also a really lovely person which made it a lot easier for us to feel comfortable having our photos taken. I would 100% recommend Elvira to anyone!"

"From the minute I met Elvira we clicked. She knew exactly what I envisioned to capture the most important day of my life! She captured the mood, setting and joy on every guests face that special evening at Locande Verde, especially for the bride and groom. Elvira was a pleasure to work, very professional but most important she is extremely talented. I highly recommend Elvira to anyone who is looking for an amazing photographer; you won't be sorry and will have an amazing set of photos for a lifetime."

"Like having an old friend for your photographer! Elvira was our wedding photographer for our February elopement at the NYC Marriage Bureau and we could not have been more pleased with the experience of having Elvira with us on the day and the photos we received. We love the photos! When it came time to choose some for our album and to share with friends, it was near impossible to whiddle down the choices. Elvira captured moments, expressions, the landscape, everything that was part of the day. She captured memories! This was really important to us because it was just us, our witness and Elvira at our nuptuals and we wanted to be able to replay our day with friends and family. When we had the opportunity to share the photos, EVERYONE LOVED the photos and each of my siblings were fighting over which one was the best one, and everyone had a favorite. My mom, who is the most impossible person in the world to please, kept saying, "Oh, this is my favorite, no, this is my favorite. Every time I go to the next picture, I have a new favorite." So, if there ever was a compliment to be had, there is no finer one than that! Another family member who has a taste for the finer things said, "these are magazine photos!" With those types of reactions, for the money we spent, there are absolutely no complaints! Elvira was within budget, an absolute joy to have around, and I know that we got tired, but you'd never know if Elvira was. She was flexible with our timing, waiting through delays, but was still always ready for the moment. We couldn't be more pleased overall. Big thanks!"

"Elvira is a truly wonderful, amazing, fantastic wedding photographer! My husband and I got married this past April at the New York Botanical Gardens. When we first saw her website we were blown away by her natural, documentary style wedding photography. When we hired Elvira she worked with us closely prior to the wedding, to help us get an idea of what we wanted for pictures the day of. Elvira guided us through the planning process with ease. The day of the wedding she made it feel effortless. We really didn't want a lot of posed pictures, and Elvira worked magic in making couple portraits feel natural, candid and true to who we are. Her turnaround in getting the pictures back to us was quicker than we expected. And when we received our wedding pictures we were blown away. She captured moments in a creative, beautiful and natural way. Both my husband and I couldn't of asked for a better wedding photographer experience!"

"These are, by far, the best pictures we've ever had. 200% satisfied with the results! Elvira was very professional, arrived on time and made us feel very comfortable while shooting. The images speak for themselves! Amazing work. Really fast turnaround too! I would recommend Elvira over and over again! Thank you so much!"

"Elvira, thank you very much for taking pictures of our wedding. We cared less about anything but a good photographer and beautiful wedding bouquet. We are happy that we made the right decision about involving you in putting our exciting day in so beautiful memories! Pictures are stunning! We were not easy clients with lots of requests and we got everything we wanted! You are the most easy-going, quickest and professional photographer we've ever met. Now, we are your fans...and we would like you to be a part of every important event we'll have in the future. Thank you Elvira!"
"Elvira is a perfectionist and one of the most professional photographers I know! I had the pleasure of hiring Elvira to take pictures of my bridal shower. Elvira had to overcome the challenge of taking photos of a large group of women in a small place with difficult/dim lighting. Not only did she do a great job, but she exceeded all of our expectations! My family keeps asking me for copies of pictures from the shower because how great we all look in her shots. Also, what I loved about having Elvira there was she was never in the way, and yet she was always there to take the photos you wanted her to take. From my experience some photographers disappear now and then or are not as attentive when you want a photo with a certain guest, but Elvira was always attentive! Also, while other photographers often get in the way - interrupting conversations and in a way ruining the moment for you, but not Elvira. I got plenty of complements from family and friends during the event about Elvira's professionalism before they even saw her pictures! And of course once they saw the pictures she took, both candid and portrait, they said she did a wonderful job! I will recommend Elvira for anyone who is looking for a hard working photographer with a wonderful eye for making the most of your given location and getting the most flattering pictures she can out of you. Elvira is a perfectionist who truly cares about her work and does it with all of her heart. She captures not only moments but emotions too. You don't find this kind of talent very often. Choose her and you will not regret it!"

"Elvira is very professional and the pictures were incredible! Lighting and camera work was well thought out and she gave good instructions on how to look good in the pictures. I would recommend her for any occasion."
