natasha_montero-019I am a Photographer and Filmmaker based in New York City.

For me, photography is a way to celebrate life.

My favorite things to shoot are weddings, family portraits, quinceañeras,portraits—special occasions and also “just because” sessions. Here’s a little bit more about me:

  • I have a Bachelors Degree from Sacred Heart University in Media Studies with a concentration in TV and video.
  • My love for photography began in high school.
  • I’m engaged to my fiance Rich!!!
  • I worked on film sets for a year without getting paid and it was one of the best jobs ever (except for the paycheck part).
  • I love food.  I can be left in an island as long as I have goat cheese, mango, parsley, avocado, milk and bread.
  • Favorite shows: New Girl, House, Mad Men, Smash, Downton Abbey
  • I’m a member of Professional Photographers of America.
  • I have been photographing weddings for 4 years.
  • I never formally studied photography. It is all a combination of self taught, second shooting and learning from peers, youtube.com, creativelive.com and my own curiosity.
  • I love traveling. I have traveled to 15 countries and I hope to continue growing this list.
  • I love my job. Opening my own business was the best decision I’ve ever made! Read my blog post.
  • I recently started teaching photography basics to amateurs and I really love doing it.
