I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s more sources than I found that aren’t popping bc they weren’t indexed by Google. Many didn’t ping on Google that I ended up finding on Instagram.

Yes, the “authentically” made me giggle snort too.

Update 1/23/2024

I found a few AKAs of hers – Natalia L Photo and Va Natalia. She posts a lot in various destinations that aren’t local to her area (which I believe is in the Boston area?) saying she’s moving there soon. I saw one post for Corning, NY, another for Florida. It appears she may be located in Woonsocket, RI or Blackstone, MA.

Ugh. Just ugh.

There’s more but I have 6K images to edit from two weddings this weekend soooo here you go… I’d wager that most of her boudoir ads aren’t using images she took.

Update 10/17/23 – Kelli deleted her Facebook Page and created two new ones. It appears she also deleted her Instagram page. There is an old one that seems inactive.

This is yet another submission for the Photo Shyster division.  Buckle up because it’s a freaking ride.

Luminus Photography used to go by Carter Creativ and was a photography and cinematography team of Tanya Carter and Orlando Maldonado.  While they advertised themselves as a “husband and wife” team, they were never married, only engaged.

Tanya is a MagMod Ambassador and Luminus as a team has a series of workshops they are booking for 2020.  Tanya was also featured as a “How I Shot It” photographer on the MagMod You Tube.

Currently there are about a dozen photography and videography clients waiting for products that I am aware of, potentially more.

There are also photographers and videographers who were hired as additional staff who were not paid.  Often these photographers were sent in without letting the clients know in advance and their work was not equal to the work Luminus advertised.

They are also booking workshops and advertising themselves as a team but according to both Tanya and Orlando, they have split up and are no longer in business together.

The more and more I’ve dug into this mess, the more apparent it has become that it’s a dumpster fire.

What spurred my decision to make a post is that one of the clients affected by this debacle originally hired another photographer I featured here – Choose 21 – and hired Luminus after reading that Choose 21 was no showing/not delivering files/had stolen content making up their portfolio.

Update 3/5/2020 – I feel like this guy right now trying to explain everything that has happened with this company.  Updates are at the bottom of the post.

Update 3/26/2020 – No videos have been delivered, communication is minimal at best and often coming via group chats with Tanya, Orlando and Trevor from MagMod.  Click the update to go to the details.

Update 1/20/2022 – No clients that I am aware of ever received their products and the ones waiting for refunds that hadn’t received them yet from Tanya never got them.

Apparently now Tanya is ‘tiktok’ famous for being in love with her son’s friend.  They go by Tanya & Josue and have been featured on Snapchat’s “Love Don’t Judge” series.

Also, sadly, some clients chose to believe Tanya when she informed them that I was lying and booked her for weddings after this post went live.  They are also now joining the other clients from this post waiting for their products.  For one wedding she ended up taking photos on her phone because her only memory card ‘failed’ and she missed a lot of photos when she went to the store to buy a new one.  No professional photographer should EVER shoot a wedding with one card on hand.  Ever.

At this point in time, as far as I am aware, there are still clients from all the way back to 2019 waiting for images and/or video.

If there is interest I can add to the bottom a bigger update detailing more of what has gone down since the last update here in March 2020.  Just know if you’re reading this, per Tanya, you are a demonic follower of mine.  Welcome!

Apparently Xavier thinks he could pass as Jerry Ghionis.  *raises eyebrow*

His instagram is full of suspicious images but the majority aren’t coming up on google, likely from Instagram directly which isn’t often indexed on Google.  Peruse his feed to make sure your image isn’t one he stole.
