Here's the thing about me: I'm kind of obsessed with being nice to everyone, I can't hold a grudge to save my life, and I'm one of those glass half full kind of people. I cherish life and believe one of the most important things is to live life to the fullest and to make the most of every possible moment. My favorite phrase is "La vida es para vivirla" which loosely translates to the point of life is to live it. Cheesy, I know, but it sounds way better in Spanish, I swear! I'm always giggling at some dumb pun or meme, and I do my best to only add good and positive things to the world, because there's enough negativity out there as it is. (That's sounding mildly hippy like, isn't it?)
To put it simply, that's exactly what I want for my couples. I mean, come on! It's your wedding day! You've spent months planning every last detail, making sure everything is perfect, and then what? You want to spend the day stressing about it instead of living it? I want my couples to love every second of their wedding days and to cherish those once-in-a-lifetime moments. I want you to smile and laugh and be so overwhelmingly filled with joy that you don't even know what to do with yourselves.
& here's the thing about working with me: to me, its not just a business transaction. Your photos are so much more to me than that, and I want to make sure you know that. Each wedding day or session that I am selected to capture, is an absolute honor to me. So if you expect me to just show up and do the bare minimum to meet the requirements of our contract, you'd be dead wrong. Everything I do, I do with love. So when I'm shooting your wedding or session, I will do my very very best to make sure that you are beyond happy with both the experience of working with me and the photos you receive. I want you to be 100% happy with your decision to work with me, but more than anything I want to do my part in making this one of the happiest days of your lives. I put your happiness above all else, and that’s a promise I know I can keep.

My sappy backstory that no one asked for :')
Everyone always wants to know: what made me become a photographer? Not to be cliché or anything, but I have literally always loved photography, as far back as I can remember! At 8 years old, I was gifted a little pink point-and-shoot camera and I used to go around the house, taking random photos of my family, of our cats, of the flowers and the grass and just about anything I could think of. It followed me throughout the rest of my childhood and teenage years, and I genuinely, genuinely loved it so much. Not to mention, you knowwww my VSCO page was popping in high school! When I graduated, I was gifted my first DSLR, my first professional level camera. I spent the rest of that Summer absolutely obsessed, watching YouTube videos and practicing all the time. I was so eager to learn more and my love for photography only grew with each little tip and trick I learned. It was so much more real now, and it very quickly became my favorite thing in the world. That summer officially cemented photography's place in my life.
Once I started undergrad, I started running through all these career possibilities, and I was absolutely stumped. I couldn't decide what to do with my life, and nothing felt right. Meanwhile, I had started a minor in Studio Art and was taking every photography course my university offered. Then one day I came to the realization that I could turn this love and passion that I had for photography into a career! That I could make a living off of this thing that gave me sooo much happiness. Years later, I've graduated and I'm actually doing it! My dream job that I first thought of as this far-fetched crazy idea, and now it's my reality. Sometimes it doesn't even feel real.
So, with that being said, when you see me gushing and ranting about how much I love my job and adore what I do? Just know that I 100% mean it. I've waited my entire life to reach this point in my life, and I cherish every second if it. I love what I do SO MUCH & I feel like the luckiest person in the world to have discovered this passion of mine from such a young age. To know that I'm living my life to the fullest and doing what makes me happiest every single day, is something that I will never, ever take for granted. & every single one of you that helps this dream be my reality? Whether you book with me, refer me to a friend, or just like my post on insta, I appreciate it more than you'll ever know! It means the absolute world to me, so thank you, from the very bottom of my heart <3
A big thing about me is that I absolutely ADORE going to concerts! I've been to over 50 concerts in my life, in 5 different states, and I'm no where near stopping. Who's next?
In 2001, I moved from my home country, Argentina, to the US. Its so special to me every time I get to go back & explore my home country with my cute fam! & eat some goodddd food :P
In 2021, I graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of South Florida with my Bachelors in Marketing with a concentration in Entrepreneurship and a minor in Studio Art. Go Bulls, am I right?
I'm a biggg people person, and these are my people! My friends are a big part of my life, and I adore each and every one of them (even the ones not pictured :P)
