I'm Luis Rafael, a Boston based photographer specializing in family and individual portraits, events, and street photography. I do more than take a photo -- I tell stories and help breathe life into memories.

“It’s one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it’s another thing to make a portrait of who they are.”

– Paul Caponigro

My goal is to provide you two things: peace of mind and phenomenal photos.

Photo Sessions

From headshots to Holiday cards, graduations to fashion shoots, I can work with you to bring your vision to life.

Events & Studio

Concerts, birthdays, corporate events, engagement shoots, meetups… Provide the venue and the people and I’ll capture the story.

Social Media

Launching a new brand or looking to grow some more? Have a product that you’d like to sell? Have a campaign that you’d like to generate photo assets for? I can free you up from the photography so you can focus on the really important thing: your clients.

The Process

Photography is a team effort between the people on both sides of the camera. To make sure everyone is on the same page, communication is key. When we’re all on the same page, everyone can relax, which means we get the best results.

- Sincerely, Luis Rafael

Let's Work Together to Make Your Vision a Reality!
