Jonica is key member of the Eloping is Fun team. A tried and true Brooklynite with a hint of her hometown Texas charm, she carries a grace that quickly puts others at ease in front of her camera. Jonica honed her skills at the International Center of Photography and at the Fashion Institute of Technology, and impresses our clients with her talent in nding incredible locations to shoot at here in New York City. Jonica is a consummate observer and loves being able to enter the sacred space of wedding ceremonies in order to preserve the beautiful moments that would otherwise be lost. Jonica cleverly immortalizes each detail that makes an elopement special, and feels honored to document the joining of two lives together into one.
Mariliana was born and raised in Venezuela. Her father introduced her to photography at an early age, and she began taking photography workshops in her teens. When Mariliana isn’t behind the lens, you can nd her dancing, teaching yoga, discovering new neighborhoods in New York, or obsessively reading about food. Mariliana doesn’t know how to give less than 100%. Her clients say, “We chose Mariliana because of her exceptional eye for capturing the simple beauty of the moment, her passion for the craft of photography, and the contagious joy she exudes. She captured what we wanted to remember about our wedding as well as things we wanted to see (while we were so busy getting married!).”
Kathleen’s passion for capturing the perfect wedding photos started when she was just a child. Spending hours playing with her mom’s old cameras, Kathleen discovered the innocence and enthusiasm that shines through the viewfinder, especially, when her subjects are lovebirds getting married. For her, elopements are a special, intimate secret that is only known to the lucky few being photographed. In addition to being a photographer, she is a graphic designer and studied art history and drawing in college, which influences her photography style. Most couples describe her as calm and unobtrusive yet not afraid to direct them when needed. When she isn’t shooting or editing photos you can find her spending too much money on graphic novels, hunting down new beers to try, or curled up with a blanket with her husband watching movies.
