"Tanya was far and beyond what we could have expected, she made our wedding day so much fun! We had a blast with her taking pictures all day, and we sincerely treasure the incredible pictures that she took for us. She has a really unique knowledge of New York City and was up for any of our crazy ideas for pictures with our 20+ person wedding party. Thank you Tanya!" {Sarah J ~ New York, NY}


"Tanya did a fall foliage shoot for our family. Her patience and natural talent created the most incredible artistic photos. The sun was setting and my toddler was getting cranky but Tanya's calm disposition and talent turned the situation into a fun, memorable experience." {Debbie S ~ Staten Island, NY}


"Tanya exceeded my expectations! I appreciated that she went out of her way to put my mind at ease. We walked through the site where our wedding pictures would be taken in advance and we were able to discuss different possible scenarios/poses. Tanya thinks outside the box and was able to see potential, especially in the outdoor setting. Tanya captured all of the special moments prior to the ceremony, throughout the ceremony and at our receptions. Tanya was professional and very gracious working with our wedding party, family and guests. I had no reason to worry at all because she listened to our requests and did her absolute best to deliver. She was prompt in providing hundreds of edited pictures of our very special day. I would highly recommend her photography. She will work with you to capture your special occasion beautifully!" {Elisabeth E ~ Canterbury, CT}


"Tanya took family photos for us in the Dumbo area of Brooklyn. She did an incredible job capturing posed and candid moments for us. Her creativity and direction, finding perfect backdrops and giving advice, made it easy for us to have beautiful family photos. We will definitely use her talents again!" {Josiah M ~ Staten Island, NY}


"Tanya has taken pictures for our family for many years. She is creative and has an eye for details; all of this while she keeps her friendly, laid back disposition.  Nothing rattles Tanya! Her photos really captured my daughter's personality and beauty." {Doreen M ~ Lake St Louis, MO}


"Tanya helped document our entry into parenthood with a maternity photo shoot, and took our first family pictures after our son was born. These pictures are priceless as they recorded such a special time in our lives. Tanya is a wonderful photographer. She provided guidance and suggestions for poses, but also took plenty of candids. She also accepted our suggestions of pictures we'd like to try. With the newborn shoot she was patient and kind. We took many breaks to feed and soothe the baby and never felt rushed. The sessions were incredibly easy and natural. Another wonderful thing- we got a sneak peak of a few of the photos the next day! The final, edited, photos were emailed to us in a timely manner- no long waits! Overall our experience was wonderful. I would highly recommend Tanya if you're looking someone who's the perfect balance of professional and fun." {Ashley V ~ Brooklyn, NY}


"Do yourself and your family a favor and have Tanya take your pictures! She has a great sense of humor and is an expert at making her clients feel at ease. She listened to our preferences and from that created a beautiful story. She has a keen eye for great locations and poses... and knows how to make you enjoy the whole process! Our couples photo shoot was a wonderful memory and are some of my favorite photos of us. I look forward to our next session with Velardo Photography!" {Ashley A ~ Warrenton, MO}


"I love Velardo Phography! She took my senior pictures and I couldn't be more happy with how they turned out! She is reliable, personable, very creative, enthusiastic and professional in every way. At the end of my experience the single most important piece to the day was how the pictures turned out and I am so glad I was able to work with Tanya. I would recommend her time and time again." {Priscilla E ~ Warrenton, MO}


"Tanya has been taking pictures for my family for the past six years and it has truly been a wonderful experience each time! She is very professional, yet fun and laid back all at the same time to offer wonderful and creative suggestions to enhance your session, but still giving you full control over telling your story. She pays so much attention to detail and cares so deeply; her passion really shows in her quality of work!" {Bonnie C ~ Wentzville, MO}


"I love Velardo Photography! Tanya did my senior photos and they were beyond anything I'd ever imagined. She went above and beyond to make sure my pictures were what I wanted, made me feel at ease during the photo shoot, and had fun. She clearly loves what she does and that shows in the great pictures she takes; nothing stiff or boring. Not only did she listen to what I wanted, but she also had tons of great creative input. I highly recommend her!" {Kayla O ~ Warrenton, MO}


"Tanya did the senior pictures of my two girls. The pictures were outstanding. The girls (the toughest critics) loved them and were proud to show them to everyone. My wife and I really liked the pictures. The creativity of the poses, the work with lighting and color, the expressions, everything was perfect. I fully recommend Tanya Velardo as a photographer. {Moises E ~ Warrenton, MO}


"Oh my gosh! Not only did Tanya take my senior pictures, but she also showed me around the city and found different/creative photo ops. I had so much fun and her photos turned out amazing! I would definitely go back to Tanya for more pictures! :)" {Madelyn F ~ O'Fallon, MO}
