We cannot say enough amazing things about Lucia nor the final products she delivered. While it might have been Lucia’s portfolio that first drew our attention to her, it was her professionalism in conjunction with her incredible ability as a photographer that left us in awe. While planning our out-of-state wedding, Lucia was always prompt and thorough in every communication item. This dramatically reduced any pre-wedding stress as we KNEW we were in very capable hands.
During our big day, her thoroughness showed at every critical moment as she was always in the right place at the right time to capture the shot. And when there was a slight break in the action, she was maneuvering herself and any supporting photography gear to get ready for the next shot. Not only did this efficient mindset allow us to go through our wedding picture shot list effortlessly, which allowed us to return back to our wedding festivities ahead of schedule, but it allowed her to capture split-second moments.
When viewing our wedding photos for the first time, we were amazed by how many moments Lucia captured. And the quality!!!! Lucia is an exceptionally talented photographer! Her ability to take a simple layout and extract so many details from it is impressive. Each photo’s unique color, light, focus, frame position, exposure time, and many other attributes that are beyond our technical photographic capability were all incorporated in a very artistic way that produced amazing results. Our special memories are now forever captured, making them unforgettable, and we are truly grateful. Thank you, Lucia!
Lucia was the perfect choice as a photographer for our wedding! Planning a wedding from out of state was extremely difficult until I found Lucia. She put all of my worries at ease.
She emailed and called us frequently since we could not meet in person until our wedding day. Throughout the whole process she was very responsive, professional and not to mention how kind and sweet she is.
As fas as the photos, they turned out PERFECT and BEAUTIFUL! Every photo she took was stunning. She captured our special day in every way. I can't say enough nice things about Lucia and how amazing her photos turned out! My husband and our families are extremely impressed with her work.
I would recommend Lucia to anyone, she is truly the best! You will not be disappointed! Thank you Lucia for being so sweet and capturing the perfect moment of our day! You truly are a wonderful person!
When planning our wedding, there was one thing I was sure of… I needed Lucia Cintra to capture our day. I was first introduced to Lucia as a bridesmaid in a good friend’s wedding and I was immediately impressed. Of course the photos were STUNNING but I was really drawn to her character.
Lucia is the type of person who instantly feels like family so having her capture such an intimate day just feels right. I have been in other weddings where the photographer is so focused on getting the right shot that it distracts from the sentiment. While every bride wants their wedding captured perfectly, a good photographer captures those moments without intruding.
Lucia will coach you and give you tips to ensure everyone looks natural and relaxed yet it does not take away from the fun of your wedding day. She is brilliant at catching the delicate, raw emotions so you will look back at your photos and remember the exact feeling of your wedding day. She has a real gift and you would be silly not to book her.
We are so grateful to Lucia for photographing our wedding. The photos are lovely memories and they will be treasured for a lifetime. Lucia, thank you for the most beautiful photographs of our perfect day! -J&C
Lucia was beyond exceptional from the very first inquiry. She was welcoming, so friendly, and prompt to respond. We talked on the phone and met in person prior to signing our contract; she showed genuine interest every detail - how my husband and I met, our engagement, what we're passionate about, our visions for the wedding day, everything. She was incredibly organized and walked me through every step of the planning process, and Lucia created and kept a perfect flowing timeline on our wedding day.
Lucia and her team made us feel SO comfortable and special on the big day, because she had taken the time to get to know us and our story. The photographs are incredible and beautiful.
We have nearly 1,000 perfect memories captured from our wedding day, from getting ready to our sparkler exit.
Looking through our photos for the first time felt like reliving the day; she captured it so perfectly. I highly recommend Lucia; our day, and the memories we have from it, would not have been the same without her.
My husband and I loved working with Lucia! She was always looking for that "next great shot" and had tons of ideas. We did an engagement session with her and were truly impressed with our pictures so I knew our wedding photos would be in great hands.
She was open to taking any pictures I wanted, but also suggested ideas and what she thought would look best. We trusted that anything she photographed would turn out beautiful. She was easy to work with, had a fun personality and a way of making you feel at ease in front of the camera.
It rained buckets on our wedding day and I was really worried that we wouldn't get any nice shots, but Lucia totally took advantage of the rain and came up with some AMAZING photographs! Our friends and family honestly couldn't stop talking about how much they loved our photos!
Thank you SO much Lucia! Rob & Alaina Milnes
Matt: Lucia, Thank you so much for capturing every moment of our special day. You know how important pictures are to Amy and you sure did not disappoint! The pictures turned out absolutely amazing!
We had so many compliments of how great our photographer was. Thank you for taking us out in the rain, by far they were the most commented on. We hope we can work together in the future as you were awesome to work with. We can’t wait to see our book when it’s done. Thanks again, Matt and Amy.
10/10 photographer!!! Lucia was so responsive when i began searching for photographers; emailing me back almost instantly.
When we sat down and explained to her what we were looking for she was so understanding, and able to provide examples of what we had in our mind. She was so calm and kept everything moving along.
The photos that came back to us were absolutely stunning, we are so pleased!! I look at our wedding photos weekly, and cannot thank Lucia and her team enough for capturing our beautiful day.
Lucia was by far one of best people we worked with while planning our wedding. She is professional, prepared, and an expert photographer. The quality of the photographs she took of our wedding day was unmatched and her sweet demeanor made her a joy to work with!
Lucia worked with us right up until the wedding so that everything just seemed to flow smoothly throughout day. She always returned our emails and phone calls and was very organized the day of the wedding. I'd recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer for any occasion. You will be guaranteed beautiful photographs of wonderful memories for years to come.
Our wedding day is one of the biggest events of our lives, which we will truly remember, and we had such an amazing photographer to help us capture the memories!
Lucia was professional, organized and prepared from the beginning. She was extremely personable and thoughtful; she took the time to get to know us, which helped us feel very comfortable and relaxed from the start.
Lucia’s familiarity of the city helped us narrow down locations for photos, engagement and wedding. She was even willing to work with us to include our dogs in our photos!
Thank you again for helping to capture such great memories and producing such amazing photos. They are truly wonderful, and I would highly recommend her for any one of life’s memorable moments! Lots of love! The Cogars
OMG, I love our pics… I was crying looking at them, they are perfect! I am so very happy you were our photographer. They. Are. So. Good!
Lucia is not only a wonderful photographer, but an amazing and generous person. She took my engagement, boudoir, and wedding photos and we could not be happier with the work she has done. She got our photos back to us quicker than we expected and they were absolutely beautiful. We were so happy with her work that we recommend her to everyone!
She cares so much about us as people and is constantly checking in to see how we are doing. We highly recommend her not only for her beautiful work, but for her kindness and generosity. She is quick to respond to any questions or concerns and is extremely flexible and willing to work with her clients to give them the best experience possible. We absolutely love her and look forward to working with her again.
Lucia and her second shooter were wonderful to work with! She was so laid back on the day of the wedding and made sure that we were all having fun and that it showed in the shots she captured. Our pictures came out absolutely BEAUTIFUL. She was a little pricey when we first saw the price list, but after seeing her work and comparing it to other friends and family's wedding pictures, she was well worth the price.
We had so many amazing shots to pick from it was hard to choose which ones to hang in our home. It was really nice that we were able to download the pictures and print them ourselves since her printing services seemed a little high. And it's also awesome that we can keep all of them for as long as we want without having to pay additional.
I would highly recommend having Lucia as a part of your special day. Remember, your pictures last a lifetime and hers are ones you'll actually want to look at :-)
When my husband and I were meeting with potential photography vendors for our wedding, we knew right away that we wanted Lucia Cintra Photography! Lucia is simply amazing and she has the kindest, sweetest personality! She puts so much time and effort into her work and she really cares about making sure every moment of your special day is captured. In addition to being very accessible and organized, she is also so easy to work with and personable.
Our wedding photos are absolutely beautiful and the images that she thought to take truly showed how passionate she is about photography and how invested she was in helping to capture one of the most memorable and magical days of our lives. I would most definitely recommend Lucia to any bride!
Lucia was our wedding photographer back in September, 2015. I found out about Lucia, at the Consol Arena Bridal Show. We found our D.J. that day, and he recommended that we work with Lucia. My husband and I called Lucia the following week, for a meeting.
She took a lot of time, to find out what our style was, and what we envisioned our wedding day to look like! She showed us her portfolio, and we just sat and got to know eachother. We were complete strangers but it just didn't feel that way. We knew instantly, that we wanted her to photograph our special day. We could not have made a better choice.
Lucia photographed our Engagement session, at Robert Morris University, as well as, Point State Park. It was literally so much fun, and she did such an amazing job, of capturing our recent engagement, on a beautiful Fall day. Between the engagement session, and our Wedding, I really got to know Lucia. She created our beautiful save the dates, and restored my parent's wedding photo, making it look brand new, and so classic at the same time.
On the wedding day, Lucia first came to my Mom's house, and photographed the Pre-wedding, of me with my girls and my family, an absolutely unforgettable morning for me, and it is all caught so beautifully on film! Her photos of our ceremony and reception are simply stunning!
She captured everything so perfectly, down to every last detail. I love to sit and look at the photos, time after time. Each one is better than the next. She captured some photos of me, dancing with my grandfather. That was truly a blessing, as he returned back to heaven in December 2015. I would absolutely recommend Lucia to everyone. Her work is wonderful and she is so much fun to work with!
Amy: I am a photo freak, so finding the perfect photographer that didn’t cost a fortune was going to be a challenge for us and my fiancé at the time did not want any part of it. After going to bridal shows and having no luck with what I was looking for, I asked around and was referred by a coworker that was family of Lucia’s. I wasn’t holding my breath that she was going to be the one.
Let’s just say our first meeting lasted 2 hours. We hit it off great. I told her that I was always the picture taker and I wanted action shots not all posing. She knew exactly what I wanted. She wanted to know us as people, not just another client. We booked her the next day. Our engagement shoot was a long day, but every shot was creative and stunning. We had such a hard time picking out favorites. She even squeezed us in the next weekend because it started to rain and I didn’t get all the shots I wanted.
Wedding day….it rained but she made the shots fun and amazing even in the miserable weather. She even wanted us to go outside in the pouring down rain to take shots and everyone LOVED that rain shot. She and the second photographer stayed the entire reception. They took amazing shots from the time they arrived to the time they left. She was very accommodating to make sure every part of the day was captured. We had to touch up a photo and I wasn’t sure how it was going to look, but it turned out AMAZING.
Her work is great. She is fun and energetic and even patient with miss picky here. I never thought I would love the photos like I do because I didn’t think anyone would fulfill what I was looking for because I am a picture freak — but Lucia did just that. I will definitely recommend her to anyone and will use her again.
We had such a great experience with Lucia! Not only is she such a joy to work with, but she truly wants your day and your pictures to be the best that it can be. She listens to what you want, and makes sure to incorporate it into your pictures.
Our engagement and wedding pictures are such a treasure to us and our families, and we are very fortunate to have found Lucia to capture such special moments in our lives! With many, many friends getting married (not in the Pittsburgh area!) We received many compliments on our pictures and I would recommend Lucia for any bride!
Lucia made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera, the engagement photos and wedding photos look so natural, no fake poses!
So much happens so quickly at your wedding that is it wonderful to have such beautiful photos to remember the story of your day!

My husband and I were not looking forward to wedding pictures- we have never been big picture people. However, that changed when we met Lucia. She sat down with us to get a feel for what kind of pictures we wanted. She was able to take everything we said and create the perfect collection of engagement and wedding pictures. We couldn't have been any happier with the final result. As a plus, she was very professional, responsive, and delightful to work with. I would recommend her to everyone!
Working with Lucia was a wonderful experience! Isaac and I were very happy with the services that she provided!
Lucia was wonderful to work with both as a person and as a photographer. I had a very specific idea in mind of the types of photos I wanted from my wedding and engagement session and she gave me exactly what we were looking for! Booking her was one of the best choices I made for my wedding.
My husband and I loved Lucia. From the moment we had our video interview with her we knew we loved her. We were planning our wedding long distance and she was so accommodating to us. Also our wedding pictures came out wonderfully and I love them all. I would highly recommend her as your wedding photographer
Lucia was a great photographer for our wedding from helping us with our engagement photos to our wedding day, she made us feel so comfortable and listened to any ideas we had and did her best to accommodate us. Her quality of photos turned out great and I would recommend her to everyone!
We found Lucia on Facebook and decided to give her a try. After contacting her we met a few days later at Panera and after hour of sitting talking and laughing with her we knew she was the photographer we wanted. Lucia made everything so easy on us it was more like hanging out with an old friend, she made both of us feel so comfortable.
Leading up to our wedding we met with Lucia once for a test shoot. We had so much fun that morning taking pictures and laughing. The day of our wedding Lucia was amazing she was at our venue all day taking pictures and had so many original ideas. When it came time to do our formal pictures she took control and got everything done so quickly and efficiently but never felt rushed. She took some great shots through out the night of everyone enjoying themselves.
We had such a great experience with Lucia and couldn't be happier with our pictures. We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer and can't wait to work with her again in the future!
Lucia is so wonderful to work with! She purposefully includes your engagement session in with your photo package so that she can get to know you as a couple, your preferred styles, what you are comfortable with, etc.
She is also great about setting up time to talk both before the engagement session and the wedding to work out the logistics and talk through what you want in regard to photos. Furthermore, she gives you access to all your edited photos. While she has the option of having the photos printed for you, you also have the ability to print them yourself which is really nice. This made it extremely convenient to create photo gifts for family members using the high quality photos.
Lucia is such a sweet person and makes the experience so personal. From little surprises in the mail, to her professional yet approachable way of running her business, to her contagiously happy demeanor, Lucia is a fantastic option for your wedding-related photography!
