Hello Lovers, I am Asia!
I am the soul behind Asia Pimentel Photography. Artist, Storyteller, Businesswoman, Nomad at heart, and Inspired idealist.
Self-taught and self-made, my love affair with photography began over eight years ago. I picked up a camera (a clunky old DSLR borrowed from a friend), and instantly, something inside of me sparked to life.
My artistic odyssey had begun, and from that moment on, my life was to be marked not by days, but by the number of images captured and stories told.
After working as a photographer for two years, I set out on my own, passionately cultivating an original photography style focused on capturing real, raw moments, rather than practiced poses.
Today, this unique photography style has become my signature calling card and trademark, allowing me to travel the world capturing weddings and celebrations while I fulfill my passion as a visual storyteller.
Together with my talented team, I create documentary-style wedding photography and films imbued with your one-of-a-kind beauty, style and personality.
Inspired by light, driven by emotion and compelled by authentic storytelling, our images and videos seek to transform fleeting moments into elegantly preserved memories you will treasure forever.

BEST DECISION EVER!
Choosing Asia, Niko, and their team was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. They also suggested our amazing wedding planner so we also have them to thank for that!
We absolutely love our wedding photos and video and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for photography. They knew the location and the light and were able to capture everything we wanted which was no easy feat with 5 different locations throughout the day to photograph.
We hired them from the USA and did not meet them in person (other than facetime) until the day of our wedding in the Dominican Republic. Some might have been nervous about this but I knew from seeing their work and speaking to them that we would not be disappointed and we weren't. If you are trying to decide, just go ahead and book them. You will not regret it!

SPECIAL, PERSONAL SERVICE
Our experience with Asia and Niko was absolutely amazing. They both take their work very seriously while still having fun - photography (and capturing of love) is something they are so passionate about. This comes through in their work and their demeanor and is a major reason we chose them for our wedding.
They took the time to get to know us as a couple and made our relationship with them more of a friendship than a working relationship. From the first day we chatted via video chat, we fell in love! Asia made every nuance possible - we wanted our engagement photos taken in our home city of NYC and to be able to use the same photographer for our destination wedding in Casa De Campo, and they made this work seamlessly on their end.
From the moment we got our engagement photos from NYC, we knew we had made the right decision. The trust I felt in Asia left me feeling stress-free on our wedding day - what more can you ask for as a bride?
Asia and her team will go above and beyond to make sure that their clients are satisfied and we felt that every step of the way. To say that these two exceeded our expectations would be an understatement. We feel so lucky to have had them as our wedding photo/videographers and now, as lifelong friends!

GORGEOUS PHOTOS & EXTRAORDINARY STAFF
We were so lucky to find Asia and her team for our weddings. From the first video chat with Asia to our first in-person meeting in rainy NYC, we were always greeted with Asia’s warmth, excitement, and creativity.
Asia was one of the best decisions we made and one of the first vendors that we booked. We wanted to have the same photographer for our NYC wedding and our smaller destination wedding in DR and Asia made that dream a reality with a custom package for two locations.
We loved the bright, airy, and classic look of her work and fell in love with Niko’s video style. Spending time with her always felt like being with family and I can honestly say she and her team have definitely become a big part of ours.
When we received our gallery, we could not believe how many special moments they captured. We were so lucky to relive all of the emotions of our big day because each photo told a story.
We highly recommend Asia and her team without any hesitation, the quality of work speaks for itself but more importantly, Asia and her folks are incredibly friendly and always a pleasure to work with.

WE ARE THANKFUL TO HAVE MET YOU BOTH
I can honestly say that I fell in love with your work the day I found your Instagram page and your website. It was at that moment that I decided that these people MUST photograph our wedding. Simply put, the images that you create are stunning and speak to people in the same way classic paintings can speak to people.
I am thankful that we found you both and that it was you guys who captured the memories of our wedding. After seeing your work, no one else could have done it. You capture the soul of the person you shoot with your camera. Thank you for being a part of our wedding experience!
As we all ring in the new year, I must tell you that the images and videos from our wedding have brought happiness not just to Cathy and me, but honestly to everyone we’ve shared our experiences with!!! From our family, friends, coworkers, and even the friends and coworkers of our parents - everyone and I do mean everyone, is in love with the pictures we’ve shared with them. So please keep doing what you do, your art makes people happy!!
Cathy and I are eternally grateful to have crossed paths with you both and we could not be any happier with the way everything turned out!!
Thank you again, for your obsessive attention to detail and perfectionism!!!! Wishing you continued success and happiness in 2018!!

THEIR WORK IS INCREDIBLE, IT IS TRULY ART!
Where do I begin? Asia & Niko were the first vendors I booked after the venue. I saw their work and stalked them all over the Internet and just knew I had to have them. Their work is just incredible, it is truly ART!
I felt that if there was one thing I was going to splurge on it was going to be the photos because you have them forever and I feel I got every penny’s worth out of my investment.
We love Asia and Niko so much, we felt like I had known them for years and they treated us like family. We will never forget their kindness and hospitality at both the wedding and Rock the Dress session at Altos de Chavon- they were more than just photographers for us- they calmed our nerves on the wedding day/night and took care of everything at our Rock the Dress session, it was a truly stress-free experience.
The photos were well worth the wait- I can’t stop looking at them… they seriously look like something out of a magazine. Asia & Niko made everything in our wedding and Rock the Dress session look so magical and dreamy. In fact, the photos Asia & Niko took were so beautiful that they were featured in a popular wedding blog and I have even come across some on Pinterest!
We can’t say thank you enough to them for the incredible photographs that we will cherish forever. I’m already thinking of excuses to come back to DR for another amazing photo session.
