About

Yesenia+Bocanegra-+Raleigh+Portrait+Photographer

¡Hola!

My Yesenia Bocanegra and I am a wedding and fashion photographer, an educator, a traveler and polyglot. 

I have a background in film and graphic design and have been able to incorporate those skills into my photography work. My style is artistic and lifestyle. I like to capture candid and authentic moments and be able to tell a beautiful story as it naturally unfolds.

I have been fortunate to have the honor of teaching and designing various Photography, Film and Graphic Design courses and have been a guest speaker at top universities in Puerto Rico and offer private photography courses and one-on-one mentoring for anyone wishing to expand their skills.

Traveling and language learning is a big part of who I am and I've had the pleasure of leading photography study abroad programs in Panama, Iceland and Morocco. Some of my work has been exhibited in private galleries and published in various online and print publications.

I am based in Raleigh, North Carolina and live with my husband and two furry children, Padme and Archer.
