POSING THAT FEELS NATURAL
ON THE WEDDING DAY
I'M HERE FOR YOU
YOU DESERVE DAMN GOOD PHOTOS.
I'm not even remotely joking when I say that 95% of my clients say some variation of "I'm sorry we're so awkward!" and "You have your work cut out for you!" My point is... you're not alone! Trust me, that's what I'm here for! I use prompts to help direct you and get out of your head for some natural and fun posing that feels authentic. If you need some liquid courage to help you? Then bottoms up!
My biggest goal is to be an endless fountain of support for you and a calming presence. If you need to sneak away for some peace and quiet? Done. I'll be there reminding you to eat and drink. When golden hour starts and it's time for some dreamy portraits? I'll let you know. After that? It's party time!
Through the planning process I'm always more than happy to jump in and help out wit the location scouting, timeline building, any and all resources that you may need to have your wedding day go off without a hitch. After all, I've shot 100+ weddings in my career and you'll have just the one. Let my expertise lead the way to a seamless day.
If you want to get damn good photos the most important thing that you can do is hire someone that you trust. That's the truest way that you're going to feel at ease and have photos that come out natural.
"Marcela is a not only a fantastic photographer but also a great person to be around. She has that gift of capturing a moment so organically. After looking through my wedding photos roughly 3 million times, I can still feel every emotion coming through. Also amazing to work with! We instantly felt so comfortable with her, and she does a great job helping people like me, who aren't always super comfortable in front of the camera, feel confident! Truly, we had the best experience working with Marcela, we are so grateful for her and her work!!! If you are considering Marcela to capture one of your major life events, don't hesitate!!!"
"Marcela is amazing. From the moment you meet her, camera bag and cheesin’ smile in tow, her love for her work is gleaming and apparent. When shooting our engagement photos, she was thrilled to understand our vision and bring it to life. In addition to taking exceptionally beautiful photographs, she’s simply a true pleasure to work with. Thank you for capturing us as we are, Marcela!"
"The thing that drew us to Marcela (besides the beautiful photography!) was the diversity of the people she photographed. Other photographers that we looked at seemed to be too careful about choosing 'model-looking' clients and the content that they displayed didn't seem genuine - too posed. 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.
