It all started with an entry-level camera body. And two small lenses. They came in a kit, which I bought on sale at a local NYC Best Buy store. It was nothing fancy. But it was all I needed to learn the ins and outs of a DSLR camera. To learn how to shoot in ‘Manual’ […]

I love lists. I love them almost as much as I love crossing “completed tasks” off of those lists. In fact, sometimes I write things on my to-do list that I’ve already done *just* so I can cross them off my list! I hope I’m not alone in this! Luckily, I have my STARTplanner, which fuels (and fully supports!) […]

When you think about your wedding photography, what gets you most excited? If you think about your wedding gallery, what are you looking forward to the most? Is it shots of the bride and groom details? Or gorgeous portraits of the two of you? Is it candids from your ceremony? Or shots of you having […]

An ‘Andrea Rodriguez Photography’ couple knows that goofy dance parties in the middle of the living room are the best kinds of parties. And that inside jokes are the best kinds of jokes. An #ARCouple laughs together, cries together, and sticks by each other’s side in the crazy, messy, tough times. Because they are best […]

I got my first hard copy of the bound magazine […]

It’s my birthday today! I don’t normally celebrate my birthday anymore, if I’m honest. But I had a nice, quiet day, got some flowers at work as a gift from my amazing boyfriend Justin, and received a lot of wonderful messages throughout the day! I’m so grateful for all of the love and the good […]

A few months ago, I shot a few family photos for Amber and her lovely family at Chelsea Piers, in the area close to the Carousel at Pier 62. It was such a fun family portrait session because we had the opportunity to capture some images of the entire family playing, laughing and having a great […]

I interrupt the daily broadcast of tragic news that we see in the media “all day e’er’ day” to bring you a little dose of cuteness in the hopes of lifting your spirits a bit today. I met a lovely family a few days ago and had the chance to spend some time with the […]

About a year ago, I realized I had a dream. I realized that I wanted to use my passion for photography to tell love stories and to breathe life into moments that quickly begin to fade. Celebrating, enriching, and preserving love through photography became the purpose that guides me. Because, the truth is, if I’m […]
