What can I say Petronella is absolutely amazing and her work speaks for its self. She's so much more than a photographer she goes above and beyond for her clients. I was really nervous about being in front of the camera all day and having the attention of everyone but she help me feel comfortable in front of the camera... She helped me truly embrace being a bride and I loved every minute of it.

When my husband and I wanted a photographer to capture our unconditional love for our wedding weekend, we wanted someone/team that could understand our distinct heritage backgrounds, love of language, love of learning, and love of family and friends. As a first and second generation Latin American couple, we carry a strong bond with our native countries but have developed remarkable relationships in the U.S. with people from all over the world. We wanted a professional that could understand us-- our commitment to love, multi-cultural friendships, and more importantly, we wanted someone that could take the time to get to know us not as clients but as "familia". Petronella immediately made us feel comfortable and was able to talk to us like she had known us for years! What we most love about Petronella is her intellectual curiosity. When we discussed how we were going to integrate our faith and backgrounds into our wedding day, she made sure to ask a lot of detailed questions in order to understand how to better capture these moments. Before the grand day, she and her team communicated with us and always kept us in the loop. We always felt like we were her only clients because she always listened to us, gave us her undivided attention, and provided her professional advice. She is not only the utmost professional photographer, she is someone you do not want to let go after the celebration is over! Indubitably, we highly recommend Petronella Photography for any significant event in your life!
