You MUST hire Lillie! From her photos, Lillie’s talent and artistic abilities speak for themselves. But from our first conversation, I knew Lillie was a special person and had to have her as our photographer. She was instantly a source of creativity and encouragement for us, helping us to come out of our shells in front of the camera. The ultimate hype-woman, something I never knew I needed for our wedding day. Lillie was on her game from day one; promptly responding to emails/texts, making time to go over details with me, and helping guide the timeline process to help our day go smoothly. She worked with us to make a package that fit our needs and our short timeline (we had a large wedding with only 4 months planning time). AND THE PHOTOS! I can’t even begin to express how incredible our photos are. Our friends and family have been gushing over her personality and skills for months now. Don’t wait on booking this creative gem!

-Melissa

Lillie was INCREDIBLE! From the moment we decided to work with her, she was nothing but positive, responsive, excited and accommodating. On our wedding day, she jumped right in and captured every special moment. She truly felt like a friend from the start! Our photos came out beautifully - her technique and editing captured the vibe of the day perfectly. I couldn’t recommend her more!

-Michal

We can't say enough amazing things about Lillie. She was so patient with us throughout the planning process and so professional, upbeat, and fun on the wedding day. Our pictures turned out absolutely beautiful! Would *highly* recommend Lillie to anyone looking for a photographer who can capture both the intimate and major wedding moments.

-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.

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?
