Born in Northern California, JJ studied Photography, Cinema and Media Arts at Ithaca College's Park School of Communications. There she learned the classical, technical and theoretical aspects of the medium of photography, and graduated cum laude during the big change over in the Photography Industry from film to digital. She has been on the forefront of the digital photography world ever since.
After relocating to New York City, she has worked with a wide array of clients and subject matter—ranging from her tattooed portraits for Rebel and Urban Ink Magazine to the bridal fashion of the Jenny Yoo Collection and Bari Jay Fashions—but soon developed a passion for Wedding Photography.
To JJ there is nothing more personal and beautiful in life than being able to capture and record personal events—life's precious moments, rights of passage, and all of the moments that make up a person's life—and being able to tell a story with her images. To her it is an honor to be that person, to be there for other people and deliver a product that will be looked at for years to come with fondness and joy. Nothing is more fun than experiencing the joy of others.
JJ has a passion for life, and she is one who goes where her heart takes her: be it in the ring as a boxer, shooting weddings on the beaches of Malibu; the coast of Georgia, St. Thomas, or at Old Saint Patrick's Cathedral; or spending a week in the Nevada desert shooting tattoos at Burning Man !
She is open minded, easy going, and always goes the extra mile to capture your day with skill and style—and a smile!
Born in the Philippines, Angelica grew up in New York City but lived in Boston for five years. She graduated in 2001 from Boston University's School of Communication where she studied Broadcast Journalism.
She has used her skills to capture the moments of a wide variety of events and assignments over the years and truly loves to tell a story through photographs. Her favorite moments to capture are usually found at weddings.
"It’s such a beautiful time filled with happy memories, tears of joy, candid reactions, and heartfelt emotions,” she says. “It is always an honor to be chosen to be a part of a couple's wedding day and document every detail so that they can look back on their special day and enjoy their wedding again and again.”
In addition to events in New York City, Angelica has photographed weddings in Hawaii, the Caribbean, Barbados, Boston, California, DC and Florida. She loves to travel, so consider her bags packed if you need her to travel anywhere in the States or overseas!
