Information & Pricing

My pride at being a military retiree, my chicken and dumplings recipe, wearing flip flops with almost everything, traveling everywhere I can and my secret shame - my reality TV obsession. 

what I'm known for:

The first time I was paid as a photographer was for a same-sex civil union in DC in 2009 (shortly after they were first allowed in the district), The photos are far from great but I still love them for what they stand for.

Even after 70+ weddings, I still cry during the father-daughter dance and sigh dreamily at the look on the groom's face when he sees his love for the first time.

My favorite wedding colors: Blush, Burgandy, Navy, Steel Blue & Ivory
My favorite wedding flowers: Peonies, Juliet Roses & Brunia

I'm an Adirondack native with southern sensibilities. You probably won't hear me say "y'all," but I do believe sweet tea is liquid magic and that our mountains are as close to heaven on earth as you can get.

kind words

FROM PAST WEDDING CLIENTS

Since we couldn’t meet her prior to the engagement shoot, she allowed us to use the engagement shoot as a “practice run” for the wedding. Those pictures turned out so beautiful that I was sure she was the right photographer for us. She was very open to all of my ideas and was great at understanding my vision for the day and incorporating her ideas as well. She was very friendly and I never worried that I wasn’t going to be satisfied with her work. When we got our pictures after the wedding, I was astounded. They all turned out so much better than I could have imagined. One of our photos was even featured in Saratoga Bridal Magazine! I could go on all day about how happy I am that we chose YM Photography. It was definitely the best decision I made for our wedding. 

Yesenia was amazing. We lived in California at the time, and she was so great with coordinating phone calls that worked for us (since we were in a different time zone).

Seriously, Parke and I could not have asked for a more professional, thoughtful and talented photographer for our wedding. Yesenia knows what she is doing, super professional, has an amazing eye for detail, is accommodating when it comes to requests and super quick in her delivery. We loved working with her and every time I look at the pictures I find a new detail I haven't caught before. 

Yesenia is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! If you read this, you are obviously considering her for an event, you can stop your search now and book her - done, one thing less to worry about. 

Parke & Lena

My husband and I are SO happy we got to work with Yesenia! She made us feel comfortable and I couldn't be happier with how our pictures turned out. She even was down to go up to the roof of our reception hall and got some of my favorite shots up there! I was so nervous about photographers when we first started planning, but my concerns went away after our first phone call. Awesome person and awesome photographer!

the process

FROM the photography team

Our process is simple. We care about your day and ensuring that your images are as beautiful as every detail you planned. What is important to you is important to us. Weddings aren't just an event to the YM Photography team, they are memories to be be made. 

We always begin our process with an in-person consultation or phone call. This will give you an opportunity to chat directly with Yesenia to see if she is the right fit for you. Likewise, we know where our team excels and what sort of weddings are the best for us... it's like a two-way interview and the final outcome is that we are the perfect match!

We then encourage you to continue your photographer search. Yesenia always says she wants to be your first choice not your only choice. We never want our clients to feel they settled with our services. We also would never say our services are better than the other million other crazy, talented photographers in the area and are always happy to help you find a more perfect match if our policies or editing styling are not quite what you'd like. 

Once booked, you have access to a wedding client portal which contains instant access to your contracts, scheduled sessions, invoices, payments, wedding planning tools and communication directly with our team. We are one of the only photographers in the area that provides a service like this. 

But we don't stop there! We ensure a detailed wedding day timeline is built with your input and based on your desired day of events. This ensures we have plenty of YOU built into your photography timeline as well as time for just the two of you alone without cameras. We do not take weddings that are one photography event to the next and it's why we don't often take weddings with less than 8 hours of coverage. 

Then comes the day of. Live events are fluid. While we have a timeline built with contingencies built in, we have met and handled every timing issue and blessing you could image.

engagement sessions

There is no better way you can improve your wedding day photography than taking the time to work with Yesenia during your complimentary engagement session.

Our top three reasons to do an Engagement Session

1. You get a practice run of almost every aspect of your wedding portraits. Want to see how we'll pose you or how your hair and make-up will look on your wedding day... an engagement session is the perfect opportunity to see both.

2. It builds confidence! Inevitably, every client walks into the engagement session saying "We're awkward in front of the camera", "We have no idea what we are doing" or "We hate having our photos taken" and they walk away saying "That was fun!", "We should be models!" and "We feel so much better about wedding day portraits!". That's exactly what we want! By doing an engagement session, we build trust with you. 

3. Because they are some of Yesenia's favorite photos of her clients. A purely selfish reason but without the hurry of a wedding day, Yesenia can create romantic images that you will cherish... and she digs that.
