Claudio's style in wedding photography is guided by his love of storytelling and strong composition. His approach is to be discreet, capturing those candid moments that make the day so special. He is a self-taught photographer, who realized his love for the craft while on a trip to South America, having recently graduated from Boston University with a degree in English. Upon returning to Boston, he worked in a darkroom and spent several years teaching himself the art. For the past seven years, he has worked as a professional photographer for newspapers and magazines in New York City, and he is a regular contributor to The Wall Street Journal. Claudio is a member of the National Press Photographers Association where he has won several regional and national awards. On of his photojournalism projects was recently spotlighted on The New York Times's Lens blog.

All packages include 8 hours of photography by myself and a second photographer. I prefer to work with a second as I believe it's important to working in the photojournalistic style, but am flexible with what I offer and am willing to work with you to create a package that fits your needs. Please call or email with any questions!
