ABOUT

"Caceres loves working with natural light and capturing emotion in her iconic images.  Brides and grooms will appreciate her noninvasive approach."  - New York Magazine Weddings
HELLO THERE

Loreto Caceres is a New York-based photographer who brings a contemporary fine art approach to wedding photography. Her focus is to work with her clients and allow that genuine moment to arise which translates to beautiful, spontaneous images.

Loreto holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts/Photography from the School of Visual Arts in New York City (2005 graduating class). When Loreto is not working, she is either in the ocean surfing, traveling or documenting the surfing lifestyle. Her surfing photos depict the texture, current and swell of the ocean through colors, details, and motion. Her deep affection and intense emotion for the ocean and its power is translated to the viewer as she leads us onto the beach and into the ocean with her. This personal and passionate body of work is not only a study of the artistic curves of the ocean; it is also a first-hand look at a circle of individuals that live a unique lifestyle.

PERSONAL PROJECTS
I’m currently working on a surf lifestyle body of work that will constantly be growing.

Loreto is the most incredible wedding photographer, we cannot recommend her more highly! She was such a joy to work with throughout the process- and really felt more like a great friend than a hired photographer. Having a talented photographer was very important to us and what drew us to her work above others was her ability to capture candid emotions throughout the day. She has an incredible eye for editorial photographs that record the moment and tell a story without feeling overly staged or unnatural. Leading up to the wedding she was very organized, having us think through all of the shots we wanted on the day. On the wedding day, she and her second shooter were amazing. They were not at all obtrusive and when it came to the few formal portraits they kept things moving along quickly and efficiently. Our entire family loved working with her. When we got the pictures back we were completely blown away. She had summed up the day perfectly and we couldn't be more pleased with our photographs. We highly recommend working with Loreto- she is a true talent!

Nothing less than AMAZING!!! Literally, the best photographer to capture your special moment. From the moment I met Loreto I knew that I had made the right decision with our wedding photographer. She kept in touch with me for the weeks leading up to the wedding and not just by email but text and calls as well. We also shot our pre-wedding pictures with her and she was just a dream to work with. My fiance is not keen on having his pictures taken and he opened up so much to her because she is just that down to earth and special. She takes her time and delivers amazing shots, most importantly it is as personal as it can get with her. I know first hand how important it is to have one of your vendors actually care about you and your partner, always checking up to make sure everything is going as planned. The day of our Wedding was hectic and Loreto brought peace to the whirlwind of things, she was calm collective and reassuring. If I can do it over again she would still be the Photographer that I choose. Let's get to the QUALITY of her work, it's SEAMLESS. She takes her time and delivers such beautiful photos that tell stories not just a moment it's so much more.

Loreto was absolutely outstanding to work with. She has a warm, welcoming personality that immediately makes you feel comfortable. Throughout the wedding planning process, she was so helpful in suggesting different vendors as we were planning from out of town.
Loreto came all the way to Boston for our engagement session which was so appreciated. On the day of the wedding, she was extremely organized and efficient - two necessary traits on such a wonderful but chaotic day!
All of the photos we received were absolutely beautiful, and they truly captured the feeling of such a special day. We couldn't have asked for more, and we hope to work with her again in the future!

Loreto was an absolute joy to work with. I don't love being in front of the camera, and I felt entirely comfortable working with her every step of the way. She even offered to run down to a bodega to grab me some mints and a Diet Coke, ha! Not to mention, the photos are absolutely beautiful, exactly what we wanted. She also managed to somehow be everywhere during the wedding and reception without being noticed, which led to some amazing candid shots of ourselves, our friends, and our families. I'm so grateful for the beautiful memories she captured of our day, and know we will cherish these photos forever. Thanks so much Loreto!

I really enjoyed working with Loreto. My wedding was in the Hudson Valley back in 2016. It was really important for me to showcase not only the beauty of the venue grounds but the tiny moments that took place throughout the day. Loreto was able to capture all these just as I hoped for. Our portraits came out great, they were whimsical and looked like we were lost in a forest of greenery. On a business side, she has been very professional right from the proposal phase and has been very easy to work with before/after the event. I highly recommend working with her!

Loreto is amazing! While our wedding was low-key and small the photography was important to us, as these photos be a part of our story, forever. Loreto was super friendly and we clicked right away. Meeting with her for the first time was like meeting a friend. She was very organized in staying in touch (We booked her a year in advance!) and keeping us on track. She helped a lot with hashing out the schedule and talking about our vision. A bit of a diversion, but I know I can’t be the only person who is like this. I am terrified of photos and extremely self-conscious. Loreto brought out the more relaxed side of us. I loved the way she shot us, and she got so many, that I found so many that I loved. She was never judgmental or pushy, and just so easy to work with. I can’t thank her enough for helping me overcome my phobia of having my photo taken and getting such great shots. To be perfectly honest, once the ceremony began, I didn’t notice her the rest of the night, except maybe a couple of times! She also made sure to shoot a few of the shots we discussed outside the venue at night. We could not be happier with her style and the images she produced

We were so lucky to have met Loreto at my best friends wedding. She was so stress-free and great to work with!! She took her time and made sure she got all the best shots. I knew when it was my time to get married.... we wanted to work with her! We booked her for our engagement shoot and wedding. Our engagement shoot was in the city. We went to the high line, meatpacking district and couple other locations she had recommended around the area. She went above and beyond. The pictures came out perfect!! I knew that our wedding pictures were going to be amazing. Loreto made sure to visit our venue with us, so we could walk her around and review what we wanted and what her recommendations were. Overall fantastic experience and I would highly recommend her!!
