be engaged, be in love, be yourself with Solaka Photography

Hello and welcome! I’m a full time wedding photographer based in Boston and serving the East Coast. I love laughter and people — which is why I love weddings so much.

When I first started photography, I didn’t think I’d be specializing in weddings. Years ago, I was sitting in a photo class at the New England School of Photography, Boston, and my instructor, Todd Gieg, asked if any of us wanted to go with him to photograph a wedding. I was the only one who raised my hand in class, and that summer I went with him and photographed weddings on Martha’s Vineyard, Block Island, and all over Boston.  I fell in love with the combination of relating to people through pictures on their most important day, and documentary artistic style image making. I’ve been photographing weddings ever since. And if I’m lucky, I still pair up with Todd.

I work best with people who love my pictures, and who want a photo ninja who won’t miss one incredible moment. If you want some formal images of your wedding party and family, but much prefer candids, then we should talk. My clients have a strong preference for pictures of the unexpected moments.

Also, clients who love me most want someone to be there for them not just on the wedding day but throughout the planning process and beyond. It’s not unusual for my couples to contact me many times before the wedding with questions, to become friends, to have an engagement session and to let me help them afterwards with thank you cards, albums or whatever they need. If this sounds like you, then please do call.
