Lillie strives to create images that are authentic to your unique essence, written by years of experiences and love. Capture your wedding with a photographer who wants to celebrate who you are, and remember your big day with photographs composed by a classically trained artist with a seasoned eye, an "up for anything" attitude, and just a really good vibe.
I'm known for making brides and grooms laugh and feel comfortable in front of my lens and for creating artistically inclined photographs while maintaining a totally laid back vibe.
I mean, in the end, brides and grooms just want to have fun, right?
Lillie graduated from the University of Connecticut with a BFA and a concentration in Photography. After starting her career by showing creative portraiture photography in local galleries, Lillie established Lillie Fortino Photography in 2011.
Today, Lillie resides in Westport, CT with her husband, the Greek Butcher, and her two pups, Bronson and Bessie. She has recently learned how to work power tools and as a result cannot stop tackling DIY projects for her 1950's stone-front cape.
Want to hear something odd? Lillie and her husband have a go-to date night that they rely on when life is getting a little bit "too much." Ready for it? Ok, don't judge:
Lillie and her husband love skipping dinner and, instead, getting giant ice cream cones at their favorite homemade ice cream parlor, and then taking their cones and chocolate-dripped covered hands across the street to the historical cemetery to read the grave stones and try to imagine who they belonged to hundreds of years ago. Creepy, or cute?
