We're Shaina and Arturo, a husband and wife photography team based just outside of New York City in Fairfield County, Connecticut. We love Salsa dancing and traveling the world together, especially if we’re headed to Hawaii!
We know wedding photographs exist to do more than to just look beautiful. We create them to capture the story of your celebration, the people you love and the authentic emotion which comes to life on your big day. We believe in crafting family heirlooms that can be passed down from one generation to the next. We want you to have a collection of beautiful wedding photographs to look back on for years to come with your children and grandchildren. What do you want to feel when you look back on your wedding?
Our goal is to provide you with an entire wedding experience as fun and celebratory as the day of your wedding. Shaina Lee Photography clients know that their best experiences come from working with someone they have a relationship with and trust. When your wedding arrives, we want you to feel like your day is being documented not only by photographers, but by trusted friends! Each couple, engagement session and wedding is different, and we enjoy learning about the love story between the two of you which has brought you to this very moment today.
I’m a creative at heart and lover of color! I have a passion for the romance and human connection of wedding photography and the beauty and elegance of boudoir photography. I’ll never turn down the opportunity to listen to a good love story, so when you tell me yours and all about the proposal be sure to give me all the juicy details!
Arturo is my partner in crime and our family's travel agent! He’s my assistant photographer and helps me manage all things business related. Arturo loves a good cigar on a beautiful Sunday morning to enjoy with his coffee. To match his colorful personality, he quite often has a fun pair of Vans sneakers on his feet! He's a jokester and easily rolls with the punches.
We can be pretty opposite at times, but we make a great team on your wedding day; there's a chance you'll catch us stealing a kiss or two throughout the night! You’ll find plenty of pineapple décor in our studio and home office to signify welcoming and hospitality to anyone who stops by for a visit. We’re all about having fun and enjoying everyday that life gives us! Mojitos are our drink of choice, though we'll never turn down a chance to connect over coffee. We enjoy meeting new friends— let's get together so we can cheers to your new chapter!
Our favorite weddings have plenty of natural light, meaningful personal details and a first look. Arturo and I are all about celebrating the love of any couple who is truly, madly, deeply in love! We’re bewitched by documenting authentic love and serving couples who enjoy even the smallest things in life. We have bubbly, fun and outgoing personalities, and can’t get enough of working with couples who are just the same!
When we meet with our wedding clients to go over the details of their day, one of the most common things we hear is “I hope it doesn’t rain on our wedding day!” We were married during a monsoon in early October 2014, but didn’t let the weather rain on our parade (although it literally did, we still had the best day of our lives!). Our day was proof that the old wive’s tale, “Rain on your wedding day brings good luck to your marriage” is certainly true!
