The Experience 

Having Alida as the photographer for my wedding was a wonderful experience. She was professional, thoughtful, creative, and truly a pleasure to work with. She listened to what we wanted and delivered.
— Martha Garvey, bride
Her photos of the publication party for One World Trade Center: Biography of a Building were candid, intimate, despite the crowds, and really captured the joy in the room.
— Judith Dupré, NYT best-selling author
This was the first time I had ever gotten my photo taken by a professional and my experience was wonderful. Alida is clear and concise in her instruction, with a fantastic eye for detail and lighting.
— Andrew Napolitano, Senior Equity Plan Analyst, UBS
Alida has a rare combination of professionalism, creative/technical skills, and the ability to make people comfortable in front of the camera.
— Brian Rafferty, CEO, Taylor Rafferty
Alida’s natural artistry and artistic intelligence sets her apart from any other photographer and artist, that I have worked with or seen. She makes you feel comfortable and allows you to be totally yourself, so that your best self comes through. A Renaissance woman in the truest sense, Alida is intuitive, conceptual, and a consummate artist.
— Mariel O'Connell
Working with Alida on various projects, I have always felt professionally respected and cared for as a collaborator. Whether it is her costuming my first showcased piece, or using glorious nature as the backdrop, Alida’s strong artistic vernacular through her lens and senses grows. She also loves a mean pantsuit.
— Rebecca Lermsider, Graduate student, Pratt Institute
Alida was a professional from start to finish. She was incredibly organized and was able to execute the vision I had for my professional head shots. I couldn’t recommend anyone else for your photo and portrait needs.
