Yaritza was the perfect choice for my husband and I’s New Hampshire wedding. We struggled for months finding someone in our price range and that would capture the look we were going for. Yaritza was incredibly quick to get back to me after I expressed interest in her studio. She asked about both of our families dynamics, what we were looking for, what we hoped for the ceremony/reception/overall feel of the wedding. I feel that gave Yaritza a really great idea going into it of exactly what we wanted. Day of, she was prompt, professional, and attentive. She met us and our bridal party at our air bnb to do getting ready/first look photos. Unfortunately it was raining (didn’t think I’d have to worry about that for my February wedding in NH) but we still have some really sweet photos of my husband seeing me in my dress. During the ceremony it never felt like Yaritza was imposing. There was no time when I felt she had disrupted the natural flow of the wedding and was in the right place for the right moments. We stepped out after the ceremony for some family and loved one photos which, of course I wanted some posed photos but I didn’t want to lose a lot of time from our cocktail Hour or miss our reception. Yaritza breezes through our portraits with ease and we were back partying before we knew it! I didn’t expect this but some of the posed photos ended up being my favorites. We really wanted the food, the fun, and the friends and family to shine candidly in the reception/party photos. Which is exactly what we got! The DAY my husband and I got home from our honeymoon we had our photos.(1500 total!) We were absolutely in love with the service and the product we got using Yaritza. I would highly recommend using her for your special day!
Yaritza was THE best decision of our wedding. We were looking for a photographer who had a unique "lens" to the way moments were captured. All of the wedding coverage I saw from Yaritza had a beautiful and different perspective than other photographers I found. The composition, the color, the moments... she was different. And once we found her, there was no one that even came close! Yaritza was always so knowledgable, thoughtful, communicative and supportive throughout our entire process! She gave us all of the guidance we needed prior to our wedding, and on the day of our wedding, she could not have been better. We always trusted she was going to produce incredible photos, but we KNEW we made the 100% right decision, when it absolutely poured on our wedding day, and my husband and I still wanted to do our first look outside, with some umbrellas. I looked at her and said "are you OK with that if we roughed it outside?" and she, without missing a beat, just said "oh yeah - just throw me a poncho, let's do it!" And that's what we did, and we got the most beautiful photos we ever could have imagined. We had a few day-of obstacles thanks for Mother Nature, and she made it seem like it was no sweat, and rolled with all the punches. The photos we received caught so many wonderful moments that we didn't even realized happened, since the day was such a blur. Our family and friends could not stop raving about her. We felt so lucky to have found her and we would hire her all over again. Best decision ever.
Yaritza was amazing! She was incredibly professional and still made me feel like one of her friends every time we spoke! We had an intimate wedding and I was nervous that a photographer may stick out too much- not the case at all! Yaritza was great at blending in with the group and capturing so many moments of the day! For the portraits she made us feel laugh and feel so comfortable. The quality was amazing, I cannot stop looking at my pictures! I highly recommend Yaritza!
We loved working with Yaritza! She was willing to come to our unique engagement session at a scrap yard and was happy to let our dog join in. On wedding day she was on time, professional, and she even came and got us to get a photo in front of a rainbow! She always responded to e mails or phone calls promptly. She got our 1700 wedding photos us very quickly. Highly recommend her!
I don't have enough words to describe how helpful, kind and thoughtful Yaritza was as our wedding photographer. My husband and I remarked all night she was incredibly considerate and sweet, delicately rounding people up for group photos or quietly standing to the side capturing candids. Her photos are positively stunning - you can tell she takes such pride in her art. Beyond that, she went above and beyond helping find my lost groom and ensuring he met me in the right spot for our private first look together on the big day. There's so much magic that couldn't have developed without her guidance. I will always think of her and her grace and warmth when reflecting on that incredible and totally rad day. Thank you, Yaritza!
I don't give 5 stars lightly for anything, but Yaritza deserves all 5 (and more!). Besides her great eye for stunning candid shots which is what drew us to her in the first place (check out her blog- lovely!), start to finish Yaritza was also a dream to work with as a vendor: always incredibly responsive via email, easy to be around and get along with, flexible but with a clear vision, professional but friendly, flexible, helpful, cool and collected, great taste (loved that she was as excited as we were for some of our quirky wedding details- the walk down the aisle to the Jurassic Park theme was a highlight), positive attitude without any cloyingness or fakeness (important in a sea of yes-men wedding vendors who can be annoyingly overbearingly thrilled about every little thing), able to lead and direct effectively without being overbearing, offers comprehensive photo packages and easy credit card payments, quick in her delivery of resulting photos... I could go on and on. She was really gracious and accomodating when it came time to take our (included in the package) engagement photos, which despite my husband and I being terrible at photos, came out amazingly thanks to her wonderful direction and framing. And she and her partner Michael were like amazing photo ninjas during the wedding day, taking shots I didn't even know about until we saw the end results, going the extra distance (standing in the rain without complaint!) and being generally sneaky and unobtrusive while capturing our day candidly as it happened, which is exactly what we had hoped for. I can't stop looking at the resulting 900 photos, in awe of how beautiful they turned out and how true she was to capturing the feeling of our wedding, and can't thank her enough for her effort and her vision. Yaritza's the total package: an amazing photographer who is so easy to work with and just a really cool person in general. You'll initially be drawn in by her art, but you'll definitely want to hire her (and also maybe be her friend?) for who she is and how she conducts her business. We can't recommend her enough.

We've had the pleasure of knowing Yaritza from her years in the trenches taking photos at punk and hardcore shows so after that weddings are a cake walk. Yaritza was calm and relaxed during all of the bridal party shoots even when bridesmaids and groomsman were wandering all over the place! She took our suggestions and helped us visualize good spots to get lovely photos and rolled with the millions of family photos requested by our large families. Even if we didn't have prior knowledge of her work, Yaritza would be a top choice for our wedding photography because she is a talented professional that makes the process incredibly easy. Thanks Yaritza!
Best of the Best!Reviewed on 10/14/2014
Let me start off by saying, Thank You Yaritza for returning my emails promptly and answering all my million+ questions! Yaritza is exactly what every bride needs on her wedding day: she's young, fresh, kind, patient, relaxed, bubbly, and mentally with-it (because god knows I wasn't!) We had quite a few children in our wedding party and Yaritza was so good with them - waaaay better than I was haha. It rained on my wedding day, which of course was outdoors - luckily the rain cleared and Yaritza encouraged my husband and I to take a bunch of outdoor photo's despite the freezing cold mist. I'm so happy we listened to her though! I have yet to see my photo's, but I have no doubt they came out great! I would absolutely recommend Yaritza! Check out her portfolio!

Yaritza is an artist, plain and simple. Plenty of people can take nice wedding photos, but very few have her kind of talent. Easy to work with (we had some strange requests with our wedding party photos and she accommodated us without blinking), fun, and made every posed photo feel easy rather than awkward. We were also able to take advantage of our free mini-engagement photo session, which I highly recommend if you have the ability! We got so many beautiful pictures from it.

Yartiza Colon did both my engagement session and wedding. She is an animal lover so when I told her I wanted to incorporate my two dogs into my engagement session, she was extactic. She truely knows how to capture the moments that matter. I am beyond happy with the service and quality of the photos she took at my wedding. You have no idea she is there but manages to get all the special moments without having you recreate anything. I will definitely be using her in the future and for any of my other photography needs. She is willing to travel just about anywhere, so look her up, it will be worth every penny!
