"Not only she is a talented photographer,
she is an amazing person."

My husband and I had a wonderful experience with Marcela. Not only is she a talented photographer, she is an amazing person. She coached us through the whole process. She even took time to talk me through different outfits and what would look best in photos. Most of my friends wait months and months for their photos, Marcela had a very quick turn around. She is very passionate about her art and I can’t wait to work with her again in the future.


"Marcela is there for you. Everything is about you, your husband, your family and what makes YOU feel beautiful, handsome and happy.."

"When I started looking for a photographer for our wedding, my goal was to find someone who had light and airy aesthetics. I wanted to find someone who could capture what looked like a dream. I searched and searched until I finally stubbled upon Marcela through “the knot”. I cannot put into words how grateful I am to have found her. Not only did she capture photo after photo, leaving me with tears in my eyes and a full heart, but she became a friend to us..."
