Karina & Alfred Gutierrez are a husband and wife team that loves photography. Their goal is to capture the joyous moments that weddings/events bring. They pay very close attention to detail and have your photos tell a story of you and your day. Karina is the primary photographer bringing her 15 years of successfully managing photo studios in New York and Connecticut. Her experience includes all occasions with families, kids, and couples. Alfred brings his graphic design skills into editing all photos with great care. 

Working along side Karina for several years, Alfred has become a great photographer himself. Since collaborating with Hollywood Enterprises DJ & lighting services, they have been able to bring two of the most important pieces of someone's wedding or event together with excellent quality and great value by offering discounts combining both services. In doing so they have decided to join Hollywood Enterprises as their Photography Division. Which is amazing for our current and future customers. The benefit from having amazing customer service and professionalism from all aspects of Hollywood Enterprises makes it easy for our clients to save time and money. We are excited to have them join team Hollywood. They can't wait to meet you and would be honored to capture the many memories of your joyous day.
