Captured by Marcela

Price Range $2800 - $5500



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.

You deserve an elopement experience that reflects your unique love and allows you to be free, vulnerable, and truly yourselves. 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.

FOCUSED – Helping couples intentionally craft an experience that speaks to your relationship & love story
MINDFUL – Encouraging & guiding couples on being mindful and present to help create authentic experiences
CONNECTIVE – Using my camera to help couples embrace real emotion to cultivate a deeper connection

I truly do believe small intimate elopements are the most connective, meaningful, and emotive way to unify your love and I’m passionate about helping couples plan a wedding day focused around their love!

Vendor Profile - Captured Marcela


Because my travel schedule & pricing structure is constantly evolving, I generally don't book elopements more than 18 months out (with the exception of international destination weddings). Couples usually book elopements anywhere from 3-12 months out. If you're more spontaneous or just eager to get married and want a last-minute elopement, definitely reach out! I might have space just for you.
I deliver fully edited images. I never deliver RAW, or unedited, images as they are not a reflection of my work. Every photo has my custom look applied and is adjusted for things like brightness and optimal color. I will remove small blemishes that aren't usually there but I generally don’t retouch images more than that. Your skin is part of you and your beauty and I want to capture it as authentically as I can.
On average, I provide about 50 images per hour of shooting. This number varies depending on the weather, how your day unfolds, the type of session and time. Elopements range anywhere from 200-400 photos. Couples sessions are typically around 100. I believe in quality over quantity and aim to deliver the best of the best photos from your day.
Couples sessions can be for engagement photos, honeymoon photos, day-after sessions, anniversary photos, vow renewals, or just cause you wanna. I’ll help you plan a session that tells your story, including location suggestions, activities, and assistance with outfit planning. It can be as simple as a cozy morning in a cabin, or as adventurous as climbing a mountain. Couples sessions can’t be used for an elopement (because your wedding day deserves a whole lot more than that) and I have other packages specifically for elopements!
In addition to elopements, I also love to capture other wild adventures like a canoe or kayak engagement session, helicopter elopement, camping wedding, desert session, tree-house engagement, beach elopement, trash the dress session, a multi-day adventure, backpacking session and much more!

    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!

    Amazing Experience!

    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
