    It's been almost 6 months since I got married in T&C in December 2009. Ever since I met Ileana I couldn't wait to write a glowing review about her but all the time something got in the way... Now, that I am finally done with school (I am a teacher), I can take my time and write about my experience with Ileana and the company.

    I started searching for a photographer as soon as we decided on the location. After reading a lot of reviews here and tripadvisor.com, and looking at tons of pictures, I knew I wanted Ileana. I called her and discussed the details. I have to say that from the very beginning, she came across as one of the nicest people I ever met. Very helpful, professional, accomodating, timely response to all my emails/questions/concerns. I wanted to have 3 packets - wedding, Boudoire and fashion photoshoot. Ileana worked out a great price for us that included albums, pictures and the rights to all of them. Considering what some other photographers charge and the quality of the pictures, it was a steal!

    When I met Ileana for my Boudoire shoot, she immediately put me at ease. I am not somebody who takes her clothes off in front of strangers easily and was concerned about how the pictures would turn out. They were stunning!!! My husband's reaction was absolutely precious when he saw them first.

    At the wedding shoot, Ileana was the only photographer but she managed to capture not just me and my family, but my husband, his family and our guest before the wedding. During the wedding, she picked the best possible angles (even getting into the water at one point) and the best possible poses. Her directions were clear and to the point. And once again, the pictures turned out STUNNING! Everyone who sees the pictures now is amazed at the quality.

    All in all, both my husband and myself, we couldn't be happier with the whole experience. Great job Ileana!!! A+++++ I can't wait to go back to T&C. And I will make sure to contact you once we are there. I can't pass an opportunity to take pictures with you!

    Thank you sooooo much!!!!!

              Great photos! I especially love the "fashion shoot" ones. Your short dress was amazing!

                  Our wedding is 12 months away and I can't wait to Ileana in person. I agree with everyone that she is very friendly and professional.

                    I had the honour of also spending three days with Ileana (engagement, boudoir and wedding) and she is AMAZING! She's a very personable, professional, sincerely nice and talented photographer.
                    I have to agree with TCIbride, Ileana knew all the right angles and the pictures turns out amazing! it totally blew our minds away.... LOL!
                    Thanks Ileana for everything and we can't wait to go back to T&C!

                      I agree a million times over. Ileana just shot my wedding on June 6th and she was an absolute DREAM. I am SO happy we chose her!!!! I am writing my review soon. My husband, my family, and I just LOVED HER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We have NO doubt our pictures will be AMAZING.
