We loved our experience of having Marcela as our elopement day photographer. Her seemingly hands-off approach, made our elopement day feel more about us, and less like a photoshoot. It was almost as if she was and an invisible participant allowing for my wife and me to be "Us."
What was even more special about our experience was her ability to set us at ease months before our day. Through constant communication leading up to, and during, the day we got eloped.
Her personality is that, in just four days time, we felt as if we've known her for years. It was a very moving experience for us when we had to say goodbye to her.
Ah, but you're wondering about her photos. We loved everything about them. From the colors to the depth of field. To the raw emotion captured in many of the shots (due to the aforementioned, nearly hands-off approach). In short, the finished product her efforts are beautiful.
Do yourself a favor, allow yourself to be captured by Marcela, you'll gain an experience that will not only be captured in print but one that captures your heart and soul for years to come.Sent on 04/21/2021

Hire her now!
The photos we just got back from Marcela are giving me CHILLS!! They are absolutely stunning!!!
She did SO MUCH more than just photograph us — she created special moments that I’ll cherish forever. She encouraged Con & I to genuinely interact & share intimate moments together. She prompted us to tell each other things that we love about one other, ways that the other person inspires us, & how being together has positively changed us.
It was more than just a beach shoot. We ended up giving each other precious, heart-melting encouragement & that makes these photos all the more treasured to me.Sent on 04/21/2021

I wish I could give her 6 stars!
Marcela was the perfect photographer for our adventure elopement! We loved every moment of our day she helped create! She worked tirelessly to make our adventure into marriage happen after our first option was snowed in! Great Sand Dunes felt like the perfect unique place for two Floridians who met in the mountains (and Marcela found it!). She made us comfortable to be ourselves throughout the whole day while making her job look effortless and fun. Our cheeks hurt from smiling, laughing, and a few tears. Marcela captured every precious moment! Her photography is absolutely stunning in every way! I highly recommend Marcela for your elopement or wedding!Sent on 04/21/2021
