After graduating from The Fashion Institute in NYC, is really when I believe destiny redirected my path from the desire of dressing brides to being more intimately involved in capturing the heart of their most momentous day through photography. Mostly attracted to the divine aesthetic of film and capturing love in the most timeless, truly romantic and genuine state.
I have an old soul and aim to get those classic images that you can have hanging on your wall for generations to come, as inspired by my grandparents' wedding photo that I am truly enamored by. I'm there to be as your friend and family member, to help make your day as beautifully captured, remembered, seamless & as enjoyable as possible.

Where do I start? I feel so so lucky to have encountered Sandra for our special day that was an intimate one , nothing well planned and she was totally flexible and the most positive energy ! I would reccomend her with no doubt.. the images came out amazing, she was very hard working during the whole event without is asking much of her, she was doing her thing, Shooting lots of details and natural photos.. we simply loved working with her as well as the end results. Thank you from the buttom of my heart.
What fairy tales are made of... Where to begin? My husband and I decided to quietly elope in NYC. I contacted Predestined In Love, for a last minute wedding, after having fallen in love with her photography. She most likely rearranged her schedule in order to accommodate us. From that moment on, she helped with all the details, from last minute decoration ideas to setting up the day of; she was just an email away. On our wedding day, she braved the bitter cold of January to take wonderful shots of us on a rooftop overlooking Central Park. Every detail was photographed and she was patient with me as I needed frequent breaks to warm up a bit. When we viewed our images for the first time, all the emotions we felt on that day came rushing back. It was as if we were reliving the day all over again. Her photos embody the type of romance that fairy tales are made of. She captured the essence of our love perfectly. I am grateful to be able to revisit all the wonderful feelings of that day every time I look at my pictures.
Sandra and her team were so fun to work with! Being that my husband and I are a photographer and retoucher, we are both usually on the other side of the camera. We anticipated the shoot to be out of our comfort zone, but Sandra instantly made us feel comfortable with her down to earth personality and direction. We were surrounded by crowds in NYC, but it felt like it was just the two of us. We cannot be any happier with the the beautiful shots. Sandra and her team truly captured our love and personalities! You'll walk away from the shoot feeling like you've made a few new friends. (after the engagement)
I have literally been staring at these pictures and showing everyone! You both captured moments that I didn’t think anyone saw. You are a true artist and you gave me the gift of reliving that day through these pictures.
My mom has had viewing parties haha. I can’t thank you enough and I am just blown away by what you were able to capture. So many of our guests mentioned how awesome and attentive you guys were.
On top of being talented at what you do, you’re an amazing person.
Predestined in Love was the first vendor my wife and I booked for our wedding. We considered our wedding pictures the most important thing to have figured out. We went to several different wedding photographers and could not find the balance of being comfortable with them and the style of their photos. Then we remembered how much we loved the photos from a friend's wedding, so we asked who they used. That led us to our first meeting with Sandra. Right from the first few minutes Sandra was professional, friendly, and made us feel comfortable. We went through her portfolio and different options. One of the coolest things is that she takes both digital and film photos. After our meeting we briefly talked about it and then booked her. Now we were excited. We then scheduled our engagement pictures. The day of Sandra was patient and took us to multiple locations, directing us to get the best shot. When that day was done we received photo highlights and couldn't wait to see them all. The one thing my wife and I loved when we booked Sandra was her style of photos, so while we asked for certain pictures we really trusted her eye when she directed us in different poses. The wedding itself went by so fast but pictures will be with us forever. We would recommend Sandra time and time again because we intend to use her for any future major event.
Words can't express how much my husband and I love Sandra and her team! She is a beautiful person inside and out and truly loves what she does. She goes above and beyond to make you feel happy and comfortable on your wedding day. She takes the time to sit with you and go over every detail before the big day. I would HIGHLY recommend her to everyone! We got sneak peeks of our pictures the day after our wedding and they came out absolutely beautiful! Her pictures capture the love and romance between the couple and make you look flawless. You can totally feel the love through the pictures and you can't say that about other photographers. You aren't just another client or job to her, you become her friend and family.
Sandra was a wonderful photographer and made our wedding planning simple when it came to the photos! She made herself accessible and was easy to contact throughout the process. We used her services for engagement photos, our save the date, and of course our Big Day. We would highly recommend Sandra based on her professionalism, her skill, and her final product.
Sandra and her team are an absolute DREAM to work with. Not only is she the most amazing photographer but also the most tender-hearted person you will ever meet. She was there from beginning to end and made our day so memorable. She exceeded our expectations and we have memories to last a lifetime! So thankful and grateful that she was there to capture our big day!
Sandra is a true romantic and it radiates from her when you meet her. I believe this is a special gift that helps her capture those truly special moments that you can relive over and over again. Not only are her photos absolutely stunning and of tremendous quality, but her personable and thoughtful nature allows you to relax and really enjoy the moment. We had so much fun working with her and I knew my photos were going to turn out beautiful -- and they did. She was there throughout the entire planning process and made sure that we were comfortable and had all of the shots that we wanted to get. Her customer experience and craft is so amazing that we are booking a 1 year anniversary shoot, and I hope that one day, she can take photos of our growing family. I absolutely recommend Sandra for your special day!
