Marcela Garcia Pulido
Badges & Awards
The quiet moments with fingertips caressing skin and the boisterous laughter where your eyes crinkle… I want to capture all of these moments and all of the in-between. Every couple is different and I love being able to best show what your love looks like. What can I say? I’m a total sucker for love.
I’m Marcela and this is a little bit about me; I’m an extroverted introvert who prefers late nights to early mornings and can usually be found carrying a book / I collect books, vinyl records, and tattoos / Forever a Californian, I’ll most likely call you “dude” / My drinks of choice or matcha lattes and mezcal cocktails / One of my favorite activities is hiking outdoors with my pup Rupert / I could probably beat you at Mario Kart / I think that love is rad.
WHAT CLIENTS ARE RAVING ABOUT
“From the moment we first met Marcela we knew she was “our person.” She is one of the the most genuine, down-to-earth humans I have ever met, and what an amazing talent! I was drawn to her photos the moment we saw her website and as soon as we sat down to have a beer and chat, we were sold! She was truly interested in learning about our story and who we were as a couple before we even discussed any sort of business. She is in love with love and it really shows in her work. On top of it she is very professional and communicative, and she was very understanding of our needs. She was kind enough to send us previous the morning after our wedding! Neither of us are super comfortable in front of the camera, but she made us feel like we had been doing this for a while all while laughing and having a good time. She is the best at capturing raw emotion and making people radiate from the inside out. We could not recommend her more; as of now we are looking for other excuses to book her and get to work with her. If you are looking for someone to capture your day, stop looking and lock Marcela down ASAP.”

“Marcela is a dream, not only is she an incredibly talented photographer, she is such an amazing person. Before booking with her we met with her through FaceTime and knew she was the perfect match for what we wanted. We had the opportunity to take our engagement photos with her in some of our favorite places and they were absolutely stunning, which made us even more excited what was to come for our wedding. Marcela went above and beyond to make sure every single detail of our wedding was captured. When we received the gallery of photos, I was blown away by her talent, and creative eye for photos.”

“The thing that drew us to Marcela (besides the beautiful photography!) was the diversity of the people she photographed. Other photographers that we looked at seemed to be too careful about choosing ‘model-looking’ clients and the content that they displayed didn’t seem genuine-too posed. Looking through Marcela’s portfolio I could tell that she was able to capture authentic and perfectly imperfect moments of real people beautifully, which was something that we really wanted. I thought I would be nervous, as I’m not someone that likes getting their photo taken, but I was surprised how easily she made it and how comfortable she made us feel. Through our entire session, we felt like we were hanging out with an old friend. She was very open to our ideas, including having a sunrise first-look (super early!), hiking to our ceremony spot (with a cold!), and was even down to stop between our first look and ceremony locations for a quick breakfast. She joined us afterward, during our reception as a friend, and blended right in with everyone. Our families even commented about how nice and respectful she was. Our photos turned out more beautiful than I ever could have imagined. She took photos during times that I didn’t even realize she was photographing, photos that I didn’t realize I would want. She’s like a ninja! She was able to capture so many beautiful, emotional, and understated moments and I’m so glad I have the photos to document our day. I can’t stop looking at them! Besides being an incredibly talented, passionate, and professional photographer, she is a genuinely kind, chill, humble person. I don’t think we could have chosen a better person to photograph our day. She was an absolute joy to work with and we enjoyed having her around. Thank you Marcela!”
