Hey there! I’m Marcela and I’m a Portland Wedding Photographer.
No matter where I’ve been, I’m a native Californian at heart. Which means I’m going to be stoked about everything, think love is rad, and most likely will call you “dude.” I’m a literary nerd covered in tattoos which range in themes such as life events, personal philosophies and ideologies. So naturally that includes Harry Potter and Game of Thrones.
I prefer long nights to early mornings and am always trying (and failing!) to teach myself new constellations. I guess I’ve always had my head towards the skies. I thrive best in two environments: soaking in the majesty of the great outdoors and roaming around with a childlike abandon, my eyes peeking through the viewfinder of whatever camera I happen to have handy. I picked up my first camera in my Junior year of High School and I have yet to put it down.
To be able to photograph people on such an enormously important life event is an endless blessing and I am constantly humbled. Because “in the vastness of space and the immensity of time…” you found one another. I believe in love, above all things it is the most raw and beautiful to me. My aspiration as a photographer and storyteller is to capture all of the crazy emotions that run wild and help you relive them for years to come.
Above all else, I’m a hopeless romantic that loves stories. I would love it if you shared yours so we could create some beautiful imagery together.
So here I am. I’m Marcela and I would love to take your photo.
