I'm a photographer, writer, storyteller, travel blogger, licensed NYC tour guide, social media manager and

marketing/public relations specialist.  And oh, a foodie too!

I work on a freelance, contract, remote, part-time or project basis.  

Lisa's Journey combines services that are all a part of my journey in my career and personal life.  

I have over 17 years of experience in the arts/entertainment/theatre and hospitality industries,

and over the past 13 years, I have traveled solo to many places which have been inspirational and led to personal growth. 

Inspiration for Lisa's Journey came about as a result of travel experiences that impacted my life, primarily my first trip to Sicily

when I was nine years old with my father and great-grandmother to visit her hometown and our relatives. 

I would later travel solo there (over 20 years later) to reconnect with my family and my roots.  

My love for photography started as a kid on that first trip to Sicily.  Using a small Kodak camera that my mother gave me, I would capture special moments with family and my cultural experiences there, and later in life, would learn the power of a photograph when I would look at the photos I took and cherish the memories that came with them.  I would later use some of these photos to  reconnect with my family

there in person after over two decades. 

Through my services, I hope to inspire, educate, motivate and inform individuals, communities and organizations

whether it be on their personal or business journey.

Thank you to everyone who has inspired me on my journey!

Engagement Photos

"Lisa was absolutely wonderful to work with!"

"She was very responsive to my inquiry for engagement photos & spent ample time talking with me regarding the logistics of my proposal to my fiance in Niagara Falls.  She was also very flexible with time and location, which was an important factor for my proposal since it was a surprise.  Compared to all of the other photographers I spoke to, Lisa was hands down the best option.  We love the photos that she took & she was great at directing us on what poses to do with the best backgrounds.  We would definitely recommend her & are so happy she captured the most special moment in our lives! We are forever grateful."

achieve your vision.  As a bonus, she also had our picture gallery ready for us in less than a week! So fast!
