I have used Mark on a couple of different occasions. We did a family portrait and also pictures for my daughter's graduation. He was very professional and timely. The pictures were ready when he said they would be. But most importantly he takes beautiful pictures. I am so grateful to him for the photos he took of my Mom especially. These pictures have become some of my most treasured pocesssions. I would definitely use him again and again.

Growing up in a very large Italian family, being born and raised in Rome, New York, we had big Sunday dinners and more cousins than I knew how to count to at the time. My life was loud and full of good times, and constantly crazy. While I was growing up, my parents operated and owned a photo studio. I not only grew up in front of a camera constantly, but oftentimes behind one. Photography simply is in my blood, and I completely love it! Everything from newborns to weddings, I had fun every moment behind my camera. I want to turn my passion for great photography into breathtaking memories for you and your family. Please go over my photos, and contact me should you have questions. If you want to book a portrait sitting, consultation, or wedding, please feel free to call!


We offer wedding, portrait, and event photography located in Connecticut and New England. What can I say about me? I am a wife and mother, sister, daughter, and an aunt. It struck me so many years ago, the significance of the moments in life we all share, and just how important it is to have a photographic record of these experiences. In the large scheme of things, despite our often crazy lives, it is the time we share with our friends and family that truly nourish us - mind, body and soul. With that being said, behind the camera is unequivocally home to me. And, photography is not just a job. It is a part of who I am. And I can honestly say, whether it be being a participant in your wedding day, or capturing those fleeting moments of your young child's life for you, it is both an honor and a distinct privilege to have the opportunity to be your photographer. -Angela
