  • We used Gustavo and team for photo and video coverage for our wedding this year. Originally it was going to be ceremony and big reception. When plans changed due to COVID, Gustavo worked with us to provide photo, video, and live stream coverage for our small ceremony. He was always responsive and helpful if we had any questions. The day before our wedding, Gustavo made time to speak with me over the phone to explain exactly the flow of photos to put my mind at ease! Even with everything going on, Gustavo and team puts their couples first. After the ceremony, Gustavo was able to send over a bunch of photos and they were amazing! Gustavo has a fantastic eye for the perfect shot. We couldn’t have been happier with all of our photos and videos! We can’t wait to work with him again next year for our big reception!

  • I am so glad my fiance and I decided to go with Gustavo and his team for our wedding. Reading all the raving reviews and seeing the pictures on his website made it an easy decision. From the start, Gustavo was super responsive and flexible. Gustavo and his sister were our photographers, and the two of them with the videographer were so professional and allowed me and my bridal party to just relax and enjoy our day, knowing that everything would be captured on camera. We had a pretty big wedding (with about 240 people!), but Gustavo and his team were always there ready to take a picture of us while we greeted our relatives and friends. There was not a moment that they missed. Gustavo sent us the pictures and videos not too long after the wedding and they were amazing. Everyone we showed the pictures to was just blown away. Thank you so much, Gustavo and your team, for doing such a professional and amazing job capturing our special day!!!!

  • Gustavo and his team are incredible photographers and I could not have had my wedding day without them, smoothly facilitating and capturing the best moments and also helping create them. Gustavo is an absolute professional and takes away any worry you might have about capturing the exact perfect moments. He knows the moments. He knows where to capture, how to capture and for me he was also able to bring to life a series of photos I wanted to take recreating my grandparents’ wedding album. He packs in everything in the time that you have him for and delivers so quickly you can start reminiscing before you can catch your breath. Gustavo’s photos are hands down breathtaking. Each one tells a story. It was hard to say no to that. Another main reason we chose Gustavo was because of the calm assurance he gave us. I was very nervous about capturing all of those perfect moments, worried if we would make it to the locations, and worried about all the usual stuff. BUT, Gustavo and his te... Read more

  • Our wedding day was August 4, 2019 ... HOWEVER my love for Gustavo's work started back in 2015 !!! I remember going to a wedding and seeing this photographer EVERYWHERE that day. Camera always flashing! I even said to myself "wow, this guy is great!" and quickly decided I'd have to reach out to him whenever my time came! Once we got engaged and picked our venue, Gustavo was the very FIRST vendor we met with because we just HAD to have him as our photographer. I'm not lying when I say his work in incredible, because if you go on his website or instagram page, you'll quickly see the truth in my words! Not only is every picture taken a great one, but his eye for creativity is out of this world and the way he was able to capture our love through our photos is simply amazing!!!! My husband's limit to photos being taken of him is very low, yet Gustavo was able to keep him sane and smiling the whole day through their inside jokes and their love for Captain America... Seriously though, Gustavo... Read more

  • There are no words to describe our experience with Gustavo and his team. Him, Bryan and James (videographer) were remarkable, fun, talented, professional, patient and their energy was absolutely contagious. We got married on 7/07/19 and they were able to capture so many beautiful moments, while capturing our more true silly, awkward moments during the day. Bryan effortlessly captured the nerdy sides of my husband while Gustavo perfectly encapsulated my love for food, while still managing to make me look like a model (somehow??). Previews of our photos were immediately posted the day of on his Instagram AND we received all the photos and video trailer in less than 2 weeks. Gustavo made sure communication was # 1 (whether through email, text or IG) and he never made me feel guilty for asking so many questions. Their energy made my husand and I feel like we can be our selves. Gustavo and Bryan were constantly making me and my husband laugh (and to be honest, probably ruining some pe... Read more

  • When your wedding day has come and gone so fast, the few things you have left at the end of the day are memories & photos. There was one thing I wasn’t going to skimp on for my wedding day and that was a photographer. Gustavo, Igor ☺️ & Netty have created by far, an unforgettable day. Every time I look at the photos it brings me back to the very moment in time. Gives me chills! That’s exactly what I wanted and that’s what Gustavo gave us! I got married at Anthony’s Ocean View in New Haven CT on July 4th 2019, Gustavo and Igor arrived on time to take the “getting ready” pics at the hotel, he was patient, kind, funny, professional and blended right in with my fam. It was a very natural vibe when he was taking pictures. I dragged him 😂 in the 90° Hot sun to do 1st look pictures by the Seawall before we got to Anthony’s. I love there vision and ability to see a raggedy fence and create a stunning memory. Maybe I shoulda put this at the top of the review bu... Read more

  • I booked Gustavo very early on. He was the first vendor I booked: a year and a half before our wedding. I am so happy I did because I didn't realize at the time how quickly he gets booked. He is definitely a sought after photographer!! I feel so lucky to have had him to capture our wedding day. I knew that our wedding was a little different than he was used to: we were at a summer camp (far from fancy) with 320 guests. It was an outdoor wedding, 96° and VERY humid. I got ready in a tiny cabin, with apparently many bugs that only liked biting him...but that didn't stop him from working his magic. He was very patient and creative with his shots. He made his way to all of the various locations that our venue consisted of, he didn't miss a thing. He was fun but also professional, such a comfortable soul to be around ♡ The pictures came back much sooner than I was expecting, which was a beautiful surprise!! The lighting in these shots is out of this world. We are so happy with the q... Read more

  • We are so pleased with our experience with Gustavo and his team. Right away we loved his vibe and attentiveness. Upon entering his studio, we were blown away not only by his talent but also his professionalism. We also chose to go with Gustavo's team for video and are excited to see the outcome. We also did engagement shots at Tarrywile where we had the wedding and the turn around time and quality were outstanding. During the wedding day, we felt so at ease with Gustavo and Monica, as well as the rest of his team. They worked around our unconventional wedding schedule and captured all of our joy of the day. Whenever we grabbed them to ask to get a shot with someone, they did so promptly and with a smile. Whatever we wanted to capture during the day, they were willing and listened to our wants. We're so appreciative of their hustle as well in catching the sunset in time for some portraits. With the sneak peek pics we've seen so far, we are so impressive with how he was able to capture ...

  • I cannot say enough wonderful things about Gustavo and his team. Gustavo and Igor photographed our wedding on 6.21.19. Throughout the whole planning process Gustavo was so easy to communicate and work with. When we needed to reschedule our engagement shoot because I got sick, Gustavo was so flexible with rescheduling and helping to pick the perfect location- all while having multiple other photo shoots each day. The day of the wedding Gustavo arrived early and fit seamlessly into the whole getting ready process. He helped to keep us on schedule and knew all the perfect “detail” shots to take. He ignored all distractions (such as a crazy father following him around with his own camera taking all the same shots) and was able to capture every moment perfectly. His experience and expertise came in handy when my bridesmaids put my veil in upside down and he recognized it right away and knew how to adjust it. At the wedding Gustavo, again, helped to keep us on schedule and really maximiz... Read more

  • Gustavo and his team are very professional and appear to be well experienced. From start to finish, Gustavo always portrayed a professional demeanor and was always quick to respond to questions that arose. He was very easy to work with and made the process super easy. On the day of the wedding, he and his assistant made my husband and I feel very comfortable, which was important since neither one of us like our picture taken. Gustavo was quick to edit and return all the photos to us after the wedding, and they were absolutely amazing. Gustavo’s work is hands down worth every penny spent and I can’t wait to have him create our wedding album for us!

  • Wow! Just WOW!!! From the moment I searched for a photographer for our wedding, I knew Gustavo was going to capture our special moments. We got married on May 31st, a beautiful 70-degree sunny day up in Bear Mountain. Gustavo captured each and every moment of my wedding. The laughs, the tears, the side jokes that we all made. We all felt very comfortable having him and Igor (teammate) around. Everything ran so smooth and the photos that I have, make me cry each and every time I see them. Gustavo and Igor did an amazing job and we are so happy that he was part of our wedding. But let me tell you >>>> The day I got our wedding pictures I did not work. I work in marketing and I could not keep my eyes off these amazing pictures and I was also partially crying because they came out so beautiful. It's exactly what I wanted and hoped for. I would not change a thing and couldn't have asked for more. Thank you so much Gustavo & Igor

  • Our wedding was April 14, 2019. I cannot find the words to explain how blown away we were on how amazing every single photo taken from my engagement shoot to my wedding photos. Gustavo is truly a master at his art, he makes you feel comfortable and really captures some truly sweet moments. For the wedding we had Gustavo and Igor and they got some beautiful shots, things I wouldn’t even think of! The quality of the photos alone is absolutely breathtaking!Between the more formal shots and the candid moments I feel like I’m reliving my wedding every time I look at them. I can’t say thank you enough for capturing all the memories!

  • Just got married on January 19th and have nothing but wonderful things to say about Gustavo's team. He was booked for another wedding, but worked with Igor and Juliana and absolutely loved them! They were fun to work with, patient with our dog/flower girl and worked quickly so we could get to our guests.

  • Gustavo, Igor and Ashley were our photographers for mine and Jessica’s wedding October 7th. They were AMAZING! We had a really big wedding party and they just went with it. They got a lot of shots of everyone and Jess and I. We’re extremely thankful for their can do attitude and sense of humor while it all happened. Highly recommended this crew!
