We are Cathy Rong and Christian Germoso, a photography duo based out of Manhattan, New York. With years of professional experience, we are passionate about shooting weddings, and we would love to be a part of yours!

Our photography style is simple and modern, yet timeless and romantic, reflective of the couples we work with. Our editing style is modest and organic – a beautiful and honest representation of your day. No two couples are the same, which allows us to be creative in capturing a one-of-a-kind love.

Being a couple and working together has been more rewarding than we ever thought possible, and together this resonates in our work. We both add a little something different to our creative process and that is what makes us who we are. In our spare time we like to travel, explore, and work on personal projects.

We offer full photography packages, including but not limited to: professional editing, prints, online proofing, and shooting time. We also offer custom packages fashioned to tell your love story. We provide a comprehensive photography experience, so you can better enjoy your day.

We love capturing moments and the emotions behind them. Step in front of our cameras, and rediscover your emotions for one another.

Contact us for a custom quote, and more info on elopement and destination weddings.

We look forward to meeting you and capturing your story!

Cathy and Christian



Raised in California, I am always in search of the perfect coastal sunlight of my childhood. From working with musicians to shooting photo campaigns for nonprofits in Africa, I have immensely enjoyed the people that my passion has led me to meet- and I’m excited to meet you!

Things I love: a good picnic spot, alien movies, Yelp reviews, empty thrift stores, sunlight through windows, a busy kitchen.


Born and raised in Brooklyn, I know the city through and through. In addition to photography, I cultivate start-ups and practice mixed martial arts with belts in Jeet Kune Do, Muay Thai and Sanshou. In the future, I hope to make a tier three business to help those in need.

Things I love: an unexpectedly good film, salted caramel gelato, meaningful conversation

Our Approach

We pride ourselves in doing things differently.
At Cinder & Co., we edit our photos in house. No outsourcing or changing of editor each other shoot. Cathy and Christian both cull and edit each and every photo, that way we turn out the best and most consistent result. We don’t just post your photos on an online gallery, but custom, personalized volume pages, are created with a cohesive story with every couple. If you have any specifications for any photos afterward, we are happy to help with it at no extra cost to you.
