Hello! I'm Yanique
Tea Drinker, Sushi Lover, Yoga Addict, Photog.

In real life, I’m a daughter, sister, cat mom, and worlds best girlfriend! I grew up on the island of St. Thomas USVI, but I call Northeast Philly my home. Lots of people think I'm crazy for migrating North, but there's something about the City of Philly that hooked me from the start.

Some of my favorite things include, my new found passion for collecting plants, non-stop movie marathons, getting stretchy during yoga, and all the ice cream (particularly soft-serve!) I have a passion like no other for food, and local favorites like Bareburger, Hatch & Coop, and &Pizza tickle my fancy.

I regularly squeal, when I get excited, and I will absolutely dance at your wedding because dancing is my fave. All in all, I love to have fun and ensure that all those around me feel the same joy. So don't be surprised if I make a few "that's what she said" jokes or dance after the perfect shot. It'll all in love and fun!

MY PHILOSOPHY

The way I work:

My ultimate goal, when working with couples, is to make each one feel comfortable. At home. I encourage my couples to show up and let loose, take your hair down, celebrate being different, and embrace the lovely chaos that is love.

Over all else, I value emotion and authenticity in my images. Stolen kisses, sweet embraces, and belly laughs with cute snorts at the end are my jam. So, I strive to build a connection and get to know you, personally! That way we can create authentic images that look and feel like you.

BECAUSE YOU DESERVE BEAUTIFUL PHOTOS AND A KICKASS EXPERIENCE!

\"I don’t know where to begin and how to explain HOW AWESOME YANIQUE HAS BEEN! My husband and I had a photographer planned for our June wedding for months and then we found out in March/April that they were no longer able to do our wedding. Insert freak out. However then we found Yanique and from the very start we felt so good about our choice! Yanique is very professional but still makes you feel comfortable. She did engagement pictures for us and then our wedding and we could not be happier with how everything has worked out. On time, professional, great work, makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera. Just overall awesome and would recommend Yanique to any and everyone!\"

\"YANIQUE WAS AMAZING. She took our engagement photos and we have never had professional pictures taken. Yanique eased us into every pose and gave so much encouragement and guidance. We wanted to bring our dog and she was so accommodating and helpful! I highly recommend book her for your photograph needs because she really is such a kind, caring, and hardworking person! Shout out to her awesome assistant Mary Beth, who is equally awesome.\"

\"YANIQUE WENT OUT OF HER WAY to make my fiancee and I feel comfortable, before and during our photo shoot. I've never gotten professional photos taken, and I was definitely over communicating (texting about outfit ideas, color schemes, etc.). Yanique was very patient and happy to answer all of my questions and talk about my ideas. She completely leads the way which makes for amazing photos and a fun day, she and Marybeth came up with amazing suggestions along the way! My fiancee and I love how everything turned out.I will definitely book her again in Miami for more shoots.\"

"When a photograph transports you back to a place in time or provokes a strong feeling, gosh darn you know that it's real!"

I am a sucker for emotion and personality in my photographs. I believe each image should display a sense of feeling brought to life naturally. I aim to create fresh, authentic images that draw the eyes to the subject and makes the heart yearn for what's to come.
