Your personality, our portraits
Portraits are about legacy. For families, they record the milestones life brings your way. For individuals, they embrace who you are at this moment and eventually they will show who you were.
Portraits are an amazing way to mark another year of family life thrived. For high school and college seniors, they are a great way to differentiate yourself from your classmates in the year book. For single people, they can be the foundation of new relationship formed online.
Authentic connection is our approach to personal portraits. It’s the private self, the looks with a million meanings and the candor of laughter that we are are attempting to capture. To accomplish this, we blend traditional portraiture with candid and even theatrical techniques.
William captured the essence of how my child is: happy, playful, curious, loving…ALL of that was captured in every single photo. As a mom, I will be forever grateful to treasure these memories in photos.Cindy
The session was very easy to schedule and worked around our time line. We had a multi-generational photo sessions with 7 people ranging in age from 3 months to 88 years old and he was so great and patient with everyone.

We’ve used Petruzzo Photography for multiple occasions and have been beyond satisfied with each of our experiences. My husband and I recently did a photo shoot with Felipe Sanchez of Petruzzo Photography, our third photo shoot with him. As always, Felipe brought a level of professionalism, humor, and talent that is unmatched by others.Emily

In a sense, all photographers-of-people are necessary collaborators. I’m stretching the meaning of that word a little bit. What I mean is that the artwork they create always hinges on some uncertainty from the people they photograph. They have to bend and adapt their...
These two are about to have their wedding back home in Togo with their friends and family, but before they left they wanted to do an engagement session stateside. Being big fans of nature, and water, but also wanting some modern elegance, we chose Quiet Waters Park in...
You know, a lot of us were raised in what were still the relatively early days of consumer photography. A time when fancy cameras were accessible enough to have a large base of hobbyists. Point and click cameras were easy enough to use that everyone wanted to, but a...
If you ask just about any portrait photographer what kind of person they like to work with, the vast majority of their answers will include something along the lines of “a person who wants to be there”. There are a lot of good reasons for this response. Perhaps most...
You know, in all of the years we’ve been in business, I can honestly say I have personally liked probably 99% of our clients, and maybe more. Of course, I haven’t done any actual math here. But given how difficult it is to list people I haven’t liked, I’m confident in...
