Thank you so much for stopping by. A photography experience I want for you to have goes beyond smiling at a camera. I believe if you can't enjoy it enough, there is no point to do it. So, my biggest goal here is for you to be happy, excited and ready to create amazing and timeless memories of your most important moments. 

Let's get to know each other

Photography is the art to create opportunities to live repetitively unforgettable moments.

"Marcela is absolutely amazing!!! She did an engagement session for my fiancé and I that left us speechless. The pictures were so much more beautiful than I imagined! She made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera and directed us perfectly to get all of our best angles :) She had amazing ideas and I loved her attention to detail. I have already raved about her to all my friends and would highly recommend her for any occasion!!!!"

"We LOVED working with Marcela. Not only did she squeeze us in last minute and work with our crazy schedule, she endured the heat of Charleston in July to give us memories we will cherish for years to come. Her light and airy style is perfect for family photos, weddings, engagements, and more. She is passionate about delivering top-quality photos and she will not disappoint you!"
