Hi! I'm Cayla Tangney!

I am a photographer with a strong love of adventure and authentic experiences. I love connecting with new people and making those around me smile (go figure, right?). I live in the Hudson Valley area of New York but travel throughout the tristate area. When I'm not off galavanting with my camera, I am teaching art to high school students in a New York public school. Crime shows, party games, folk music, coffee shops, and singing with my family are my jam. I would also dare anyone to challenge me to a game of F.R.I.E.N.D.S. trivia ;]

While my job as a photographer is to capture a moment in a digital format, my real goal is to allow you to cultivate memories by participating in jokes, games, and conversation during the session while I stand back and snag a still of you in the frame. I want to help you celebrate your relationship or your family in a way that extends past the images that I deliver. My method of unposed or "candid" portraits are achieved in a natural light setting in a variety of outdoor and indoor locations.

If you'd like to know more, book a shoot, or just chit chat, please reach out! I would love to hear from you :]
