• 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.

Emily and Josh, Anniversary | NYC Central Park

Emily and Josh are one of the first new friends I made coming to NYC. They lead the neighborhood group that I attend each week and provide an amazing space where I’ve come to grow spiritually in community with my brothers and sisters in Christ. I immediately was drawn to them as a couple – strong in their faith, trusting of each other. Josh is a super creative artist, and Emily is doing amazing things teaching deaf children. In addition, they were at a very similar life stage as I am – we met each other just as we all got married. Their first wedding anniversary is coming up – on August 3! We were so lucky to have amazing, AMAZING weather on a beautiful spring day to do an anniversary shoot in Central Park (followed by a casual shoot in West Village – stay tuned!). Thank you to Dawn of Bellaria Designs for helping me out!

Josh loves how passionately Emily lives a mission-oriented life

And Emily loves how Josh is a very honest, open, and intentional communicator

This is the bench in Central Park where Josh proposed to Emily on a cold winter day. Glad we could get this on a much warmer day! Josh surprised Emily by proposing here AND by having family fly in from Texas and Florida to witness it all!

Both Emily and Josh could relate to how crazy it was for me and my husband to plan a wedding in 6 months and adjust to a new apartment in the big city – that was their story as well

Loving how flowy Emily’s dress is – and that back!

Stay tuned for their sunset drenched lifestyle session in West Village!
