Moving to a new city is always scary, but at the same time it’s exciting and refreshing. New York City has always been a dream of mine to call my home. Now that I live here, I can tell people, "Long time tourist, new resident." It's feels great to have this dream realized, and it's just the beginning.
I must admit, I'm still working on building my reputation in New York City, and have a lot of relationships to build up with new clients and fellow vendors. An empire doesn’t get built overnight. Slowly but surely, we’re gaining more clients and credibility along with that. Starting with signing up as a vendor for The Knot. Next on our goals list: be part of a bridal fair.
Though I don’t have a lot of experience here in New York City, that does not negate the fact that I do have professional experience in the photography industry. I started out as a Studio Production Assistant for All Jersey Studios throughout High School; and spent my summers attending photography workshops at the Fashion Institute of Technology.

In college I moved to the Philippines. I was hired and mentored by Ian Santillan - one of the top wedding photographers in the Philippines. It was such an immersive experience to shoot and be his same day editor. 3 years of teamwork, trust, and a demanding amount of attention to detail, Ian had taught and made me a better photographer since.
Having shot mostly for other photographers, I’ve slowly began to build the brand of The Adrianne Photo. Starting with small birthday events, to anniversaries, and family portraits. In fact, I’ve been doing this for quite some time that a family in Chicago has grown along with me. Starting with their eldest son Rylan, then Zayn, and their most recent one with Mila still in the tummy!
I can’t wait to continue growing these relationships with my current, and future clients, and helping you preserve special moments for generations to come too!
