TESTIMONIALS

"Not only is Marcela an amazing talent--she's also a tremendous human being and exactly the kind of company you'll want to have with you on your wedding day. No problematic ego or facade; Marcela is simply a genuine person and a pleasure to have had around on such a special day."

Julian & Mallary

"Through our entire session, we felt like we were hanging out with an old friend. Marcela took photos during times that I didn’t even realize she was photographing, photos that I didn’t realize I would want. She’s like a ninja! She was able to capture so many beautiful, emotional, and understated moments and I’m so glad I have the photos to document our day. I can’t stop looking at them! Besides being an incredibly talented, passionate, and professional photographer, she is a genuinely kind, chill, humble person. I don’t think we could have chosen a better person to photograph our day. She was an absolute joy to work with and we enjoyed having her around."

"She is so easy going yet professional and will make you feel comfortable even though having cameras all around you is a little awkward. :) My fiance and I felt like we were hanging out with a good friend. If you are looking for a photo session outdoors, Marcela will be completely willing to take the trek to find the best location. She will turn your photo session into an adventure!"
