together we create timeless photos

Where are you based?

I’m are currently based in Guatemala City, 20 minutes from the airport also 20 minutes from Antigua. Also available for travel! Just let me know when and where you’re getting married and I’ll let you know the deets.

What are your prices?

Wedding packages start at $3,000 elopements at $2,250, and couples sessions at $630.

Do you travel?

Totally! However, I only book a limited number of destination sessions each year, so don’t wait too long to reach out!

What's your shooting style?

I love photographs that are emotional and natural. I aim to capture real moments and not stage things to just look pretty on camera. That’s why I love getting to know my couples so I’m not just an outsider trying to look in, allowing you to be your true selves on camera.

We're awkward, can you help us pose?

Haha, of course! My strategy is to give actions rather than putting you into a static pose. This gives you a starting point allowing you to move and flow and be captured in an authentic way. Being photographed can be a little scary at first, but I’ll be sure to make you laugh and help put you at ease!

Do you shoot elopments?

I do! My elopements start at $2,250, and I especially love adventurous elopements. If you’re the type that isn’t afraid to get your feet wet, I think we’ll be a good fit.

Do you use a second shooter?

Yes, most of the time depending on your needs and location.

How we will receive our photos?

I deliver my galleries via a digital link where you can download your images making it easy to share with family and friends. If you order one of my photobooks, they are delivered right to your door.

How quick do you deliver?

I pride myself with super quick turnarounds (I actually just really love editing and can’t wait to edit your photos!) and deliver portrait sessions within a week and weddings within a month. We can send you a preview within a few days after your session or wedding.

Do you do albums?

I can absolutely create a wedding album for you! I use a layflat coffee table book design, which makes your images look extra epic. My books start at $450, but email me to share some details on what you’d like to create.

Can we be real life friends?

Uhhhhhh, yes! My favorite part about what I do is getting to know my couples, because I love that I get to share in some of the greatest moments of people’s lives. It’s an honor for me to create memories for you that you’ll keep forever, and I love hearing back from my couples years down the road!
