Mariela is such an amazing photographer to work with - she doesn’t make your sessions feel awkward at all!. My husband and I were happy to have her shoot our engagement pictures we would 100% work with her again . If you haven’t booked her yet you are definitely missing out!"

It was so easy to work with her and she makes sure people feel comfortable. Her work is beautiful and I love the energy she brings and she is the sweetest. I loved working with her and hope to work with her in the future. Would highly recommend to anyone in need of a photographer for whatever reason! She's your girl!!"

got questions?

Can we add and extra hour to our package later?

Do you travel for weddings?

Do you protect our photos?

Your photos are 100% protected. I start doing so by bringing to camera bodies to your wedding. In the unlikely, but unfortunate situation where the camera malfunctions, I'll have a back up. I also have dual card slots, so when taking each image, a copy is written into the second SD card. Once i am home, I also back the up on an external hard drive.

I do! Travel fees depend of the location, and distance. 

Absolutely! All the information about overtime and the hourly rate is listed in the contract, or I'd be happy to go over that with you!
