WOWWWWW... USING LILLIE WAS THE BEST DECISION WE MADE THROUGHOUT OUR WEDDING PLANNING!!!... LILLIE HAS A WAY OF MAKING YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA... OUR FRIENDS ARE ALL JEALOUS BECAUSE NOT ONLY DO WE HAVE BEAUTIFUL PHOTOGRAPHS OF OUR WEDDING BUT THEY ARE ALSO VERY ARTISTIC. LILLIE IS AN ARTIST FIRST AND A PHOTOGRAPHER SECOND. SHE HAS A KEEN EYE FOR DETAIL AND IT SHOWS IN HER FINAL PRODUCT. 

kind words from gorgeous (inside and out) brides

-Donna

Lillie is a pleasure to work with. We had our wedding a month ago, and she was just fantastic. She was a pleasure to work with. I am so pleased with our pictures. She captured our special day with the amazing details and all of the love that was there. We are incredibly pleased with Lillie.

-Ali

Lillie is an amazing photographer and so easy to work with! She had great ideas and truly has your best interests in mind. She was great to work with leading up to the big day, incredibly responsive and thoughtful. The pictures came out perfectly and we couldn't be happier :) Thank you Lillie!!!

-Cat

Lillie will capture your day in a way that you envision it but also in ways that you would have never thought to. She's a great photographer who really takes the time to get to know you and everyone involved in the shoots. Our wedding was captured in a round about way that has everyone still raving about the photos!

-Isabelle

Lillie is the best! We were so happy with our wedding photos and absolutely loved working with her. She is super responsive and easy to work with. We can't say enough good things about her work - highly recommend!

-Gayle

[Lillie] is an AMAZING person and an amazing photographer! Even though we had just met, we felt like we had known her for years. She makes the whole experience fun and tells you exactly what to expect. Lillie is also very attentive to your interests and ideas, making sure to include as many personal elements as possible into your personal story. 

Instinctive photography for the COUPLE THAT VALUES AUTHENTICITY (from the PERSPECTIVE of an artist).

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.

Style

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?

My name is lillie

i have a weird talent for artfully pinning boutonnieres on my grooms and groomsmen when we're in a time crunch.

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.

about 

Lillie is a creative entrepreneur who slings her camera for personal projects, commercial assignments, and for awesome couples like you. in other words, her camera is like a third hand.

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?
