    BEYOND IMPRESSED!! I am so grateful that I found Nereida Castillo - PMH for my wedding! My husband and I first worked with Nereida for our engagement photo shoot in over the spring. The photos came out absolutely beautiful and she made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera (something I don't enjoy). She really understands composition and lighting. Her vision is classic with a modern twist, and she always thinks outside the box to get the best shot possible. After seeing the finished product from the engagement shoot, we hired Nereida for our wedding before even booking a venue. We planned our NYC wedding in just two months, so it was important for us to work with quality, responsible vendors. Nereida was helpful and responsive the entire way through. She responded to our emails and calls very quickly, and always found a way to make our requests materialize. She respected our wishes and gave us very helpful professional advice when we needed it. What we saw as challenges in space and lighting, she saw as an opportunity, and did such an amazing job! Photos are really the only thing you can take away from a wedding and keep forever, so I wanted to work with the best! Nereida is worth every single penny and we are so lucky to have been able to work with such a talented, creative, intelligent and responsive individual!! We would work with Nereida and her team again in a heartbeat for any future needs.

    I hired Picture Me Happy for my wedding on June 4, 2016. I had high expectations as I had very much enjoyed the style portrayed in the online portfolio. Unfortunately, I was let down. Photos on the day of were very unorganized as she would look to me for direction on an already hectic day. I really wanted someone who would be able to coordinate and direct the photos, as most wedding photographers I've seen do.

    On receipt of the online gallery I was unimpressed with the actual photos. There were a handful that I was pleased with, the rest were either not creative, people weren't looking, or just unoriginal. I was also missing photos of the garter and bouquet tosses. As a graphic designer I deal with photography all day, so maybe I was overthinking them, or maybe she just didn't really try hard enough. The photos were at most, a C+.

    The next frustrating thing was her promise time of 4 weeks that turned into much longer. I guess there was some miscommunication with me choosing the favorite photos to be edited, but even so, no one informed me until I had to reach out numerous times. And in the meantime, the original photos could've still been sent to me while the others were being edited. All that was needed was a pin # that lets you download all the images online. I'm not sure why that took 2 months to send to me.

    When I received the gallery pin I was still missing the garter and bouquet toss photos even though they had been promised to me twice. The edited photos were also not delivered by the time they said. Apparently they use an outside editing company and they were the reason for the delay. Was told photos were received on 9/6 and they would be sending to me shortly. Finally received first batch of edits 3 weeks later. Was told I would receive the second set shortly after.

    As it stands I have not received the second email of edited photos, anything regarding the album, or partial refund I was told I would receive. They are the most unprofessional people I have ever dealt with.

    No, I would not recommend!

    I don't think that we could have used a better photographer than Nereida. We used her for both our wedding and our engagement photos. She learns about who her clients are and their likes/dislikes in order to tailor the wedding photos to their taste. She had ideas based on us and what we would like. She also made sure that we were prepared for how the photos of the day would run and even came to visit our venue before hand to go over some of the shots with us. We asked Kathleen to capture the day with a news journalist feel and also include the posed photos. She not only captured the essence of the day, but even came up with posed photos that weren't the regular boring ones that you see. Everyone who was at our wedding that has seen our pictures remarks about the fact that they could remember the entire day and that the pictures served as a wonderful reminder. People who weren't even at the wedding felt that they could see the whole progression of the day as though they were there and they were part of the fun.

    Our experience with Nereida was beyond amazing! The moment we saw the engagement pictures I knew she was the one! I loved the quality of the pictures and I loved the fact that she captured all of our favorite people together. We had so much fun working with her and Amy that we really just felt we were among friends. She captured every moment in our wedding day and that meant the world to us. We were blessed with her artistic photography and creativity and would vouch for her professionalism and talent every day and highly recommend her work!

    Nereida is a wonderful photographer. Very professional. I explained to her exactly what I wanted for our wedding pictures and she delivered more than what I expected. I love her style so open, she is very knowledgeable about weddings and creative. I plan to keep her around to capture all of our special moments. I am so happy I found her, she is a keeper! Very affordable, I would definitely recommend her services.
    Thank you so much for your quick response to my request for a review. I am very happy you loved my work.
