I did a pre-engagement shoot with Yesenia and it was absolutely magical. It was snowy for the first time in ages where we live, and she took so many beautiful pictures capturing the sweetest moments with myself and my fiance. We are both thrilled with the images and cannot get over how amazing they turned out!! Yesenia is so talented, always very professional and prompt, and her product is truly valuable. More...

Yesenia was so wonderful and helped us relax and just enjoy our day. She helped us feel comfortable right away and her professionalism and enthusiasm helped make our wedding album extra sweet. We highly recommend her!
Yesenia is wonderful! She is so sweet and really has an eye for taking amazing photos! I'd recommend her photography service to anyone!
There would be no one else we would have liked to take photos of our special day other than Yesenia. She truly captured highlight moments of our wedding. Our first meeting with her was a Skype session to get to know us as a couple and learn about the different photo packages she offers. We ended up choosing a custom package (USB with photos and extra photo hours). We got married in South Florida despite her being from North Carolina. We did pay for her flight and this still ended up being cheaper than typical South Florida photographers. She delivers very well and we and our parents are very pleased with the results! We even got surprise prints from her! Thank you for being a huge part of our special day! More...
Yesenia absolutely made our special day PERFECT! She captured every single moment better than I would have ever dreamed of! She's the most beautiful person inside and out and it was our honor to have her not only photograph our wedding day but be a part of most memorable day. More...
Being a surgeon with public appearance, makes me always wanting to work with the best in every detail. I also appreciate and value academic background. Yesenia Bocanegra is the best photographer I have known so far, besides the fact that she is an artist in her compositions, she also knows the physics and all the technical details behind each shot. We had a great wedding session with her, she made the session very enjoyable, natural, and so much fun!! She was able to capture every special moment during the session. The communication and processing time was effective, and consistent. Paying attention to the details is incredible. More...
I should first say I typically dislike wedding photography, it's not authentic and every shot is silly or totally staged. So when I was looking for a talented photographer I was instantly drawn to Ms . Bocanegra. She was so flexible and knew how to make the shots fun. We showed up with a good attitude and she fed on that, giving us some amazing photos. If you are getting married in this area and need a talented photographer then call her. Her photos speak for themselves. More...
