• Welcome to the website of wedding photographer Saavedra Photography My mission is to empower people through photography to love themselves and confidently see the beauty that I see in them.

Dima & Hany, Married! | Chart House, New Jersey

I get very happy when I see a wedding where the love between the bride and groom is further augmented by their love for their family. It was really clear to me how much joy Dima and Hany derived from being with their parents, siblings, nephews, and nieces. This is also why I chose a selection of photographs that showed that love, and the fun they had by dancing all night long against the twinkling backdrop of the Manhattan skyline.

Shelly & Jay, Engaged! | Central Park, Spring Blossoms

Her: Perfectionist, introvert, empathetic. Him: clean, responsible, punctual. He loves that she is a patient and understanding woman, who has seen him through the worst and continues to stand by his side. She loves that he knows what he wants and is loyal and dedicated. We spent a perfect spring morning catching the rising sun during peak bloom time in Central Park. The only catch was that the Conservatory Garden didn’t open until 8AM, but when it did, the pink cherry blossoms were so worth it. Thank you two for having me and God bless your married life together!

Happy Baby E in Bay Area

Baby E reminds me of a very, very cuddly teddy bear. And who doesn’t love babies who giggle and laugh? Maiko is a great example of a patient, caring, and mature female role model who is doing the best for her family and child (and pet child). Dan is someone I look up to for his wisdom and knowledge when it comes to investing. I’m so lucky to call them both my friends. Photographing E was a breeze, check out also the anniversary shoot six years prior I did for Maiko and Dan.

Menlo Park family session

Better late than never to blog these beautiful photos of a family I photographed in February in Menlo Park. It was an unusual spring. We focused most of the session on play, as the girl takes some time to warm up, I wanted to create an environment that was exciting, fun, and playful.
