meet marcela

When I was 3-years-old I picked up my first camera and never looked back.
No, I wasn't born with a camera in my hand.
Like most people I roamed this planet aimlessly searching for my passion. Then BAMMM it hit me like a ton of bricks. I had found the career that was right for me.
In all likelihood the bricks were really just my severe sleep deprivation from my first child, but that is besides the point. So here I am, loving life as a photographer. 
I also love hanging with my fam/friends, eating delicious food, trying out new things, like joining my very first dance class in my 30's.
If it makes me uncomfortable I'm in!
Lastly, If I teach you anything in this life I hope it's that you should ALWAYS, yes ALWAYS, undercook your cookies.

why i love what i do

There are few things in life as magical as weddings. Most of the time love is felt and not seen. However, on a wedding day I get to capture so much love in beautiful photographs. I feel so privileged to document both of your expressions when you see each other for the first time, when your friends and family cheer at the first kiss, and your hands embracing during your families heartfelt speeches. My job is truly special and I LOVE every moment of it. 

 I went on Marcela's site, loved all her images and her personality and that was that! It seemed like a quick decision but after years of being in the industry, and knowing great talent when I see it, I knew I wouldn't have to worry.

Not only is Marcela an extremely talented photographer, she is a lovely person. I can't wait to work with her again and highly recommend her to anyone needed their special moments on film.

We cannot say enough great things about Marcela, she was so detailed and professional and we really enjoyed working with her. it felt like we were talking to a friend who truly understood what you wanted from your pictures, as everything was natural.
