Loreto is the most incredible wedding photographer, we cannot recommend her more highly! She was such a joy to work with throughout the process- and really felt more like a great friend than a hired photographer. Having a talented photographer was very important to us and what... Read More drew us to her work above others was her ability to capture candid emotions throughout the day. She has an incredible eye for editorial photographs that record the moment and tell a story without feeling overly staged or unnatural. Loreto did an engagement shoot with us prior to the wedding. It was great practice and she made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera. We were so happy with those photographs and couldn't wait to see what she would do on our wedding day. Leading up to the wedding she was very organized, having us think through all of the shots we wanted on the day. On the wedding day she and her second shooter were amazing. They were not at all obtrusive and when it came to the few formal portraits they kept things moving along quickly and efficiently. Our entire family loved working with her. It was a bonus that she had shot a wedding at our venue before so she was familiar with the space and knew the shots she wanted. When we got the pictures back we were completely blown away. She had summed up the day perfectly and we couldn't be more pleased with our photographs. We highly recommend working with Loreto- she is a true talent!

Nothing less than AMAZING!!! Literally, the best photographer to capture your special moment. From the moment I met Loreto I knew that I had made the right decision with our wedding photographer. She kept in touch with me for the weeks leading up to the wedding and not just by... Read More email but text and calls as well. We also shot our pre-wedding pictures with her and she was just a dream to work with. My fiance is not keen on having his pictures taken and he opened up so much to her because she is just that down to earth and special. She takes her time and delivers amazing shots, most importantly it is as personal as it can get with her. I know first hand how important it is to have one of your vendors actually care about you and your partner, always checking up to make sure everything is going as planned. The day of our Wedding was hectic and Loreto brought peace to the whirlwind of things, she was calm collective and reassuring. If I can do it over again she would still be the Photographer that I choose. Let's get to the QUALITY of her work, it's SEAMLESS. She takes her time and delivers such beautiful photos that tell stories not just a moment it's so much more. You are a lucky bride if you get to book this little lady on your wedding day. Trust me when I say you will want her to capture other moments of your life besides your wedding, that's how good she is!!!!!! If you are getting married work with a Photographer like Loreto who takes her time to deliver not only photographs but an actual EXPERIENCE. I went through the wedding already and I know big companies are not what they seem, they lack personality and personal communication. Working with Loreto gives you her in totality. All of her time, effort, emotion, genuine friendliness, communication everything you can't dream of because she surpasses your expectations. You need this girl to capture your day!!!

Loreto was an absolute joy to work with. I don't love being in front of the camera, and I felt entirely comfortable working with her every step of the way. She even offered to run down to a bodega to grab me dome mints and a Diet Coke, ha! Not to mention, the photos are... Read More absolutely beautiful, exactly what we wanted. She also managed to somehow be everywhere during the wedding and reception without being noticed, which led to some amazing candid shots of ourselves, our friends, and our families. I'm so grateful for the beautiful memories she captured of our day, and know we will cherish these photos forever. Thanks so much Loreto!

I really enjoyed working with Loreto. My wedding was in the Hudson Valley back in 2016. It was really important for me to showcase not only the beauty of the venue grounds but the tiny moments that took place throughout the day. Loreto was able to capture all these just as I... Read More hoped for. Our portraits came out great, they were whimsical and looked like we were lost in a forest of greenery. On a business side, she has been very professional right from the proposal phase and has been very easy to work with before/after the event. I highly recommend working with her!

Absolutely amazing!!! Seriously the best wedding photographer ever. I knew from the moment I met with Loreto and saw her website that I wanted her to photograph my wedding. Aside from being a complete professional, she is extremely intuitive, and knew exactly what I wanted. She... Read More asked me every moment I wanted captured, but it didn't even make a difference, because she truly captured every moment beautifully! I never felt rushed and pressured or forced into taking pictures. She is also super sweet, and very easy to work with. My photos came out artistic, many of them are candid, and there are black and white photos as well which is exactly what I wanted. If you are looking for professional artistic wedding photos, she is incredible. I can't recommend her enough!!!

We were so lucky to have met Loreto at my best friends wedding. She was so stress free and great to work with!! She took her time and made sure she got all the best shots. I knew when it was my time to get married.... we wanted to work with her! We booked her for our... Read More engagement shoot and wedding. Our engagement shoot was in the city. We went to the high line, meatpacking district and couple other locations she had recommended around the area. She went above and beyond. The pictures came out perfect!!

Overall fantastic experience and I would highly recommend her!!

We found Loreto through a recommendation of friends who were married two years before us. When I initially reached out to her, Loreto was traveling in Central America, but still kept in communication as much as possible. After sitting down with us at our apartment and... Read More discussing our vision (or lack thereof) we were really excited to work with her. A few months before the wedding Loreto met us upstate at our venue and walked through the property throwing ideas around. I felt really comfortable with her approach - she's definitely an artist and not a cookie cutter wedding photographer. I can honestly say the photography was one of the only elements of the wedding day I never felt worried about. Our wedding was small and Loreto captured the beauty and uniqueness of the day perfectly. I wish I had more reasons to work with her! Birthing photos?

Loreto came recommended to me by a friend. As soon as I looked on her website, I knew she was the photographer for us. Her pictures were breathtaking and unique, unlike the typical wedding shots I was seeing time and time again. Her prices were also very reasonable compared to... Read More many other photographers in the area. On our wedding day, she was professional but relaxed, which is exactly what you want from a vendor (no added stress needed!). We had to deal with the rain, but she took it in stride and rather than panicking about the shots or her camera, she continuously checked in to see if my husband and I were okay. Throughout the rest of the night, she was a fly on the wall, taking candid shots left and right (which is exactly what we wanted). I would suggest her to anyone. She is easy to work with, professional, and produces great work. You won't be disappointed!

We loved working with Loreto for our Oct. 2015 wedding. Her photos were exactly what we wanted - they feel spontaneous and natural and she was able to capture so many special and intimate moments without being intrusive. We were nervous about hiring a photographer but Loreto... Read More was easily one of the best decisions we made and was well worth it! She is very professional, super nice and just a pleasure to work with. She not only arrived early to our venue on the day but also stayed a little late to make sure she got all the photos we discussed.

I honestly don't know how she managed to capture everything but she did! She is very talented and has a great eye. Her website is easy to use and she communicated and sent us the photos following our wedding by the date estimated. Hope to have another special occasion one day so we can hire her again!

Loreto was my absolute favorite wedding vendor. We had a tiny wedding, with just our immediate family present (8 of us + the priest). We didn't skimp on anything though: full wedding gear, full Mass, a party bus, outdoor photos, a lunch, and topped it off with bowling. One... Read More person present only spoke Spanish, half of the folks don't often take pics, & my dad is a professional photog. Loreto handled all of this with ease and did an amazing job of capturing the close knit, fun, spirit of the day. There were multiple, lovely photos & intimate moments captured with everyone. She was a real pleasure to work with & once we shared the photos, people didn't feel left out because of how beautifully every precious moment was captured. I knew from her site I'd be pleased with the outcome, but particularly for the cost, the ease with which it all came together, and how even with how small our party was, she never once felt in the way, Loreto was a great pick. I got so many compliments on the photos and our family loved the quality of the albums as well. You can't go wrong with Loreto.

Loreto was a true professional and a joy to work with.

And with a role as pivotal as the photographer, those... Read Moreauyfcbefvrafaxtfuutwwtrufxwrzdburayxxw expectations are intensified tenfold. But, going in after meeting and speak to Loreto a few times we knew we were going to be taken care of. And Loreto did. She delivered in spades. Furthermore, she was as cool as cucumber during the wedding day which made us and our family feel at ease. Our wedding day was close to perfect and my wife and I keep saying "let's do it again". If we were to do it again -- we'd ask Loreto to come back and take some amazing photos for us.

Loreto Caceres

Hi, I'm Loreto I started photographing weddings back in 2009 (over 200 weddings photographed) and haven't looked back. I fell in love with photographing weddings after a friend asked me to capture her day. I love that I can create portraits, still life, landscapes, and document people and their connection to one another. I approach all of this in the most genuine and artistic way possible. Outside of weddings, I love to surf, travel and work on personal photography projects. I hope to connect with you and create something beautiful.
