Hector, our official go-to guy :)
How do I even begin? Hector was not only a testament to true professionalism, but provided my boyfriend and I with photos we simply can't get enough of. Dealing with foreign NY subway traffic we were SO LATE, I was freaked and sorry, but Hector was simply just chilling on a bench (very patiently) awaiting our arrival. As a girl who is ALWAYS LATE this tiny piece of kindness did so much for my day and experience :) We treasure our photos, loved our experience, and can't wait to hire sir Hector again. Beyond grateful, thank you!!!
P.S: If you have a nervous bf, gf, partner... look no further :) It was my guy's first time in front of the camera, and his words after were "I seriously didn't even know he was there" Perfect!Sent on 11/19/2019

Photos of our dreams!
Hector and his girlfriend Tessa did our photography/ videography for our destination wedding in San Juan, PR! I was so excited about their willingness to travel. I fell in love with Hector’s work- his photos were all so authentic and classic looking. When we met Hector and Tessa for the first time we knew we made the right decision, they were so fun to be around and didn’t make anything feel awkward or uncomfortable! The photos we have gotten back so far from Hector are absolutely breath taking. Thank you to Hector for capturing the most amazing day of our lives!Sent on 12/27/2019

Amazing photos and turnaround time
Hector was amazing from beginning to end. We found him through his work on Instagram and loved his compositions, color editing, and general ambience of his photos, so we messaged him on his website. He responded really quickly, was VERY warm and welcoming and so we immediately decided to go with him as our wedding photographer. It felt like a no brainer. We corresponded until the day of the wedding, during which he made us feel very at ease, especially since we aren't the PDA type and didn't really know how to pose. He also got a ton of candid photos of us + our friends and family. He truly is a great wedding photographer who we would recommend.Sent on 09/22/2019

Hire Ector! He's worth it!
Ector was excellent. Somehow he was everywhere at once catching everyone have a great time. I was anxious day of and wanted to make sure everyone had a good time. He highlighted all the moments I hoped he would. He took awesome candid shots and the shots I had on my list. Would absolutely recommend him.Sent on 08/21/2019

Thunder Vows Magic Photos
Hector and his team were very personable and super easy to work with.
From the moment we first connected up until the delivery of the photos, he was attentive and quick to respond to my questions and any other concerns I had. This is KEY when it comes to dealing with stressed brides!
Photos came out STUNNING!!! He will work with you even if it rains and thunders on the day of your wedding! Which it did on mine… lol
I was completely satisfied and I strongly recommend him for any wedding!Sent on 09/10/2019

Ector is a fantastic photographer. He was able to help calm our nerves and become comfortable in front of the camera during our engagement shoot. He captured our special day in such an incredible way and I am so grateful that we found him!Sent on 02/06/2019

Worth Every Penny
Could not say better things of Éctor! Very professional, accommodating, and intuitive. From the start, he was very relatable and we knew we’d made the right choice. Even when we changed the venue, he made do and helped capture wonderful memories. Will definitely suggest him to friends, family, and keep in mind for any future event.Sent on 01/10/2019

The Photos I’ll Cherish Forever
Our photos came out PERFECT! From the moment we met for our introduction, Éctor did an amazing job of making us feel/look so comfortable and relaxed (even though we are complete newbs to posing and looking nonchalant). I can truly say every moment and emotion from our wedding day was captured incredibly. I’m so thankful for choosing to work with Éctor and having these photos to show for the rest of my life. Thank you a million times over, Éctor and Tess!!!!Sent on 01/09/2019

Amazing Not-at-all Cheesy Wedding Photography
Ector photographed our wedding on 10/13/18 and was absolutely amazing. I hate taking any kind of photos so to have someone that made me feel comfortable and let me just be myself really made the experience more enjoyable than I could have hoped for. Our photos are absolutely stunning and I've never said that about myself in a photograph before so Ector really worked his magic! Definitely get Ector for your wedding. You won't regret it!Sent on 01/12/2019

Beautifully captured our same sex wedding
We are a same-sex couple who could not be happier to have had Éctor as our wedding photographer. His photos of our engagement shoot, wedding ceremony, and reception, are all simply stunning. His photos strike the right balance of being artistic, flattering, and timeless without being over-stylized or unrealistic. How did he manage to capture all of the special moments without interrupting us or making us feel like we were acting/on stage?! Everyone who has seen our wedding photos has told us that they are beautiful. We were also floored by the speed with which Éctor was able to send us our photos after the wedding. Throughout our wedding process, Éctor was professional and carried a positive energy — we not only enjoyed his work, but we also enjoyed spending time with him. Finally, as a same-sex couple, it was important to us that our wedding vendors be LGBT friendly, and Éctor more than fit that bill — he never once made us feel anything other than completely respected and he treated us like any other couple. We highly highly recommend Éctor.Sent on 01/05/2019

We found Ector through a referral. From the first Skype session, he was professional and easygoing and helped us to feel immediately at ease -- especially as a couple that is not usually comfortable even thinking about being photographed! He was genuinely as excited for our wedding as we were. He was so much fun to work with. After the event, he was super quick with getting us both a sneak peek and our full album. I cannot recommend Ector highly enough for NYC couples.

Ector was absolutely amazing during our wedding day. He had us do a casual (which is totally our style) engagement shoot before the big day, which made it so easy to just go with the flow on our actual wedding day. He was really great at making us forget that he was even there, but at the same time gave direction when it was necessary to get a really beautiful shot.
Our photos came out absolutely stunning. When I was looking for photographers I saw my fair share of bad wedding photos from the super cheesy to the over-edited and I was delighted that our photos were nothing like that. Every emotion he captured just looked so natural and he did a spectacular job of catching the energy of our day. I would absolutely recommend Ector!!Sent on 01/06/2019
Giada · Married on 03/24/2018
If you are looking for natural and candid pictures to honestly represent your big day, Ector is the perfect fit! My husband and I really wanted natural pictures without all those pictures that you see everyone take. Ector made us feel comfortable and less awkward with both our engagement session and our wedding day! The quality of work for the price is also a steal. We totally recommend him! Thank you Ector!!Sent on 01/23/2019

I loved my best friend's wedding photos so much, I booked him for myself!! He is very talented and we were utterly blown away by our photos. I said going into it that I hoped our photos/video came out perfect; since other than memories, photos are the only thing you take away from the day (after all the planning, seating charts, dancing, dodging family fights, nerves, and lets be honest drinking etc the day went by so quickly). I was also surprised at the sheer volume of photos he managed to get. He was like a ninja I guess because I never felt like we were posing or that he was right in our faces to get the shots, but they came out just perfect. He even got an impromptu jumping photo with some crowd surfing action :D I can't recommend him enough!Sent on 01/29/2019

We are so thrilled with our decision to go with Thirty Three and a Third for our engagement and wedding photos! From the very first meeting with Ector, we were so happy. He made the process so easy! I am not one to be comfortable in front of a camera, but his direction was minimal, but just enough to help us along the way. Ector made sure to stay in touch as the wedding approached, helping with a timeline and answering all my questions. On the day of the wedding Ector kept a calm vibe, which is much needed with all the insanity that comes with any wedding! And his end product is so amazing! Ector truly captures the person in each photo. You can feel the love and happiness in each photo he takes. You cannot go wrong with Thirty Three and a Third!Sent on 11/21/2017
Tanya · Married on 09/30/2017
Ector is the absolute best. We had an evening wedding that started late and ran longer than expected and I was worried that we'd miss the golden hour for getting in the shots that I wanted. I couldn't have been more wrong. I was completely blown away when I saw our wedding pictures. To say Ector exceed my expectations, is a huge understatement.Sent on 01/29/2018
He traveled from out of town to photograph our wedding, and we invited him to the rehearsal dinner the night before and when we got our wedding album back, he had taken pictures at our rehearsal dinner and included them in our package FREE of CHARGE!
My only regret is that we're not in the same city so he can take all of our milestones photos going forward.
Katie · Married on 08/18/2017
I absolutely loved working with Ector! I can't say enough good things. He was responsive to all my questions and worked with us on the package that was right for us. We loved our engagement session, primarily because it allowed us to get to know him prior to our big day. And then on the day of our wedding, every time I wanted a picture with a person or group, I looked up and he was already right there with the camera. I highly recommend working with him!Sent on 12/05/2017
Monica · Married on 06/30/2017
Ector was awesome. He was on time and he took wonderful pictures. He did not miss a step. When he first got there he started taking pictures of me and everyone that was in my bridal suite. He then went to take pictures of the groom and everyone in his suite. Everything was lovely Ector, I would definitely recommend Thirty Three and a Third to anyone.Sent on 07/04/2017

Every photographer should be as awesome as Ector!! He makes his clients feel at ease and his level of professionalism is what everyone should aspire to have for their event. His work is AMAZING!!!Sent on 03/15/2017
Monica · Married on 04/08/2017
After a lot of research, we chose Ector as our wedding photographer. My husband James and I live overseas and Ector was very accommodating when organizing Skype sessions. We wanted our wedding day to be very organic and laid back and Ector understood just that. From the previews we've seen of our photos, Ector has done an amazing job and we can't wait to see the rest! We recommend him to anyone. Thanks again Ector to you and your team for capturing our amazing memories!Sent on 05/09/2017

Weddingwire literally wouldn't let me post the whole review I had written - that's how much I love them. So here's the highlights :)Sent on 02/25/2017
First, the photography. Their work is the most real, natural expression of love that I have ever seen. They capture what I like to call the “in between moments.” That split second of a glean in the groom’s eye as he sees the bride for the first time, or a dad’s overwhelming love for his daughter shining out of his face during the father/daughter dance. Those moments that are so fleeting, but so pure. Those moments in between all the commotion of that day. To me, THAT is Thirty Three and a Third. And I’m not talking about just a few of these types of pictures in a sea of ordinary wedding shots. That is the majority of what I see in their work.
Now the photographers. Éctor is the only photographer I met with, and I was immediately sold. Not only is he one of the chilliest dudes I’ve ever met, but he has this ease about him that could calm the most bridezilla of brides in front of the camera. Kristina was the second shooter for our wedding day. She is the sweetest ball of radiant energy; I absolutely loved working with her. She made me feel like a beautiful bride and completely at ease, and you can really tell she loves what she does. They make an amazing team. And one of the most beautiful things to me about their photography is that I can’t tell their pictures apart. Their souls were made to photograph love together. They’re not really photographers. They’re artists that are just reflecting back all of the love that they see in this world through their cameras.
If you’re reading this review and contemplating reaching out to them, just hire them already!!! You won’t regret it. I could never imagine having someone else photograph one of the most important days of our lives. I’m lucky that they agreed to be part of my vendor dream team.

Ector has left my wife and I truly satisfied with his work, attention and the quality of his pictures. It has been a pleasure to go through the many (MANY) pictures that he took of us, our family and friends.Sent on 04/16/2017
We recommend him without reservation to anyone looking for a wedding photographer and here are 3 reasons why:
1) He has a great personality and you won't mind having him around. My wife and I met a few other photographers -- but he was the one that we felt we could be most natural around. He's cool and knows how to get you to look good without forcing high school prom poses.
2) Working with Ector is effortless. He sends you all the information you need in a really organized way. His digital photo archive is extremely easy to use as well. The way he took care of us did not add any stress to our wedding prep.
3) Our wedding day FLEW by. Ector's style made it so that we could see all the fun moments our family experienced while we were caught up in the moment. The pictures we have are how we relive our wedding day.
Bonus: The pictures he took are the bomb. Seriously. We now have tons of candid pictures of our family having a great time. SO many of them deserve a frame.

Ector is who you want as your photographer. I cannot speak highly enough of him and his astonishing talent, his creative eye, and his flexibility. He captured the spirit of our wedding, a task I thought would be impossible. His work is a dance of light, a story of love - an absolute dream. Look no further.Sent on 04/21/2017
