Hey there! I'm Neysha, (pronounced nay-sha, rhymes with Croatia, but don't sweat it if you don't get it on the first try!). I'm a portrait photographer with an infatuation for love stories based in Arlington, Virginia, where I live with my boyfriend, Danny.
I'm also an optimist, wine lover, and a dog person - we're actually getting ready to welcome a puppy into our little family this spring! I consider Puerto Rico home, although I've lived around the world from Central America to Asia. Fun fact, Spanish is actually my first language!
I’ve been taking photos for over 15 years. It started as a way to capture my travels, inspired by my father who is a nature photographer, and grew in to an adoration for weddings.
My signature photography style is traditional, with a twist. Which means colors will always be true to life, ensuring that your photos will stand the test of time, with a modern, dreamy, bright, and emotive spin. We'll focus on executing your vision harmoniously with a mix of posed and candid portraits. To me, photography is about telling a story!
Being by the water, or preferably in it, is my happy place. I love the sand between my toes and sun on my shoulders. I'm also a scuba diver, so you can catch me hanging out with the fish when i'm home in Puerto Rico.
I get so much inspiration from old family photos. Seeing my grandmother and her sisters, or my mom when she was my age all frozen in time gives me goosebumps.
Is it just me, or are farmers market apples always the best? Fortunately, every place I've lived in the DC area has just so happened to be right next to a farmers market, and that makes me happy.
Ok, let's be real... i love all wine, from Pinotage in South Africa, to two buck chuck from TJ's. My absolutely favorite kind of wine, though, is a super dry rosé. No bubbles allowed.
