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

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

The photos we just got back from Marcela are giving me CHILLS!! They are absolutely stunning!!! She did SO MUCH more than just photograph us — she created special moments that I’ll cherish forever. She encouraged Con & I to genuinely interact & share intimate moments together. She prompted us to tell each other things that we love about one other, ways that the other person inspires us, & how being together has positively changed us. It was more than just a beach shoot. We ended up giving each other precious, heart-melting encouragement & which makes these photos all the more treasured to me.


We loved every moment of the day she helped create. Marcela was the perfect photographer for our adventure elopement! She worked tirelessly to make our adventure into marriage happen after our first options were snowed in! Great Sand Dunes felt like the perfect unique place for two Floridians who met in the mountains. 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!


Instead of telling us how to pose or interact with each other, Marcela gave us prompts that seemed simple but made a huge difference. She asked us to talk about our first date. We discussed the weirdest things we loved about each other (which made us laugh) and how we could fulfill each other’s love languages. Amy and I played games with each other and Marcela captured the energy that happened naturally between us. I love this shoot because it perfectly captures the love we share. It’s incredible to see that love and admiration encapsulated in a photo! Thank you for this!
