"Beautiful photos don't just happen..." It takes meticulous planning, collaboration, and attention to detail to achieve a truly luxurious outcome in wedding photography. Both photographers and clients play pivotal roles in crafting stunning imagery that captures the essence of the special day.
For photographers, technical expertise is essential. They need a keen eye for composition, lighting, and framing to create captivating images. Additionally, understanding the client's vision and preferences is crucial. This involves thorough consultations before the wedding to discuss style, mood, and specific shots that are important to the couple.
On the client side, communication is key. Clearly articulating their desires and expectations allows the photographer to tailor their approach accordingly. This includes sharing details about the wedding venue, theme, and any unique elements they want to incorporate into the photos.
"We are from out of state and still chose to fly to Charleston for our engagement pictures. We took photos in downtown Charleston and Marcela had a list of places to go for the most amazing photos. Meeting Marcela at our engagement session allowed Marcela to get to know us as a couple and see how we interact with each other. We immediately felt comfortable with her and this allowed for her to capture beautiful natural photos of us.
"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.
"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..."
"We HIGHLY recommend Marcela if you are looking for a wedding photographer in Charleston. She is experienced, professional, passionate, and easy-going yet serious about her work. She was absolutely amazing and went above and beyond!!
Throughout the wedding process she was constantly in communication with us, answering any questions we had. She was also constantly in communication with my wedding planner which was super helpful as well."
"Marcela was beyond amazing to work with. She photographed our engagement and our wedding. Her work is flawless, light and airy. Everything I had envisioned, she captured. Not to mention, her personality is so fun and she can capture some pretty cool moments. I highly recommend booking Marcela for your wedding, you will not be disappointed."
