I am a fine art destination wedding photographer based in Southern California and NYC. With an artful and lifestyle approach to photographing weddings, I strive to capture the emotion behind a wedding day, tell a story and create beautiful images.
I appreciate the nostalgia in all things vintage, including photographing with real film cameras (as well as digital).
Currently based in California and seasonally in NYC, I specialize in destination weddings worldwide and will gladly travel to any location for a wedding celebration.

Carmen is the best!
Carmen is amazing - not only is her work incredible (which is obvious from her Instagram), but she’s extremely nice and friendly and easy to work with!Sent on 09/18/2020
Carmen worked with us to make sure we and all of our guests were comfortable during Covid. She wore a mask the whole time and kept social distance while taking photos. And the photos could not have been better!
Carmen really put us at ease for the photos and we can’t wait to work with her again!

One of a kind!
Carmen photographed my wedding prep, ceremony, and reception. I planned an intimate wedding on short notice and Carmen was very flexible and patient throughout the process, even with last minute changes! She has such a warm personality, it felt like I’ve known her forever when we just met. This was helpful since I always feel out of place in front of a camera. She offered clear guidance for poses and had the best ideas for what would make unique pictures. The whole process was effortless. I am so privileged that I was acquainted with Carmen because our wedding photos were beyond what I expected. All of our guests were stunned with how beautiful the photos turned out. She truly is a one-of-a-kind professional photographer. Thank you Carmen!Sent on 10/18/2020

Could not have asked for a better photographer
Hands down, Carmen is the best investment my husband and I made for our wedding day. Having our special day documented by Carmen will always hold a special day in our hearts. The way she captures the little moments, the big moments, and everything in between is just... perfect.Sent on 09/21/2020
From the very beginning of emailing back and forth to our sweet FaceTime introduction... and all the COVID-impacted change of plans, Carmen was with us 100% of the way, always supporting every decision and asking us how she could help. You won't find another photographer who is more collaborative, kind, or dedicated to her clients. We feel so lucky to have found Carmen during our research.
And of course... beyond the amazing person she is, the PHOTOS are just BEAUTIFUL. The way she uses film to capture the light and softness of every shot is truly breath-taking. These photos will be our keepsake for life.
Carmen is fantastic!
Carmen is one of my favorites! She is wonderful and her pictures are amazing! Simply one of the best photographers in the business! Many of the brides I have worked with for florals have gushed about Carmen to me.
Carmen Santorelli is a true gem in the photography world. She is sweet, creative, and innovative. I am so grateful for all the opportunities we've had to work together so far. She is always highly recommended to our clients.
