ELOPING IS POWERFUL. YOUR PHOTOS SHOULD BE TOO.
There is something so liberating and soulful when you take all the expectations and opinions of what your day should be and chuck them out the window! You’re left with what truly matters the most: your love. That is the power and beauty of eloping.

I believe in intentionally crafting and capturing a day focused on experiences that make you feel alive in your partner’s presence. It’s my great joy to serve you with authentic photos of these raw moments of truth.
I’m here to show up and serve you, to help you uniquely craft an elopement day that best represents your authentic love and genuine selves.

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 helps 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!

We loved our experience having Marcela as our elopement day photographer. Her seemingly hands off approach, made our elopement day feel more about us,... and less like a photo shoot. It was almost as if she was and an invisible participant allowing for my wife and I 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 every thing 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
