Hey, I’m Marcela and I have the best job in the world. I’m a Portland wedding photographer who travels the world photographing beautiful people (like you!) as they share their love with their community. It’s a pretty sweet gig if you ask me.

As a Chicana child of immigrants, I am dedicated to inclusivity and showcasing diverse, badass real couples as they choose to share their love with their communities.

Tear-stained cheeks and bellyaching laughs… yeah, I’ll capture that and so much more. As a storyteller, I take a more fly-on-the-wall (documentary style) approach so I can focus on capturing the moments of your day exactly as it unfolds. My work is timeless yet vibrant with a bit of an edge. Emphasizing a mixture of candid moments with artistic portraiture, you’ll be able to look back on your images and relive your wedding with a sense of nostalgia and remember just how incredible it all was.

Whether it’s in the form of an elopement with just you and your love, an intimate campground wedding with some of your favorite people, or a giant raging party with 200+ guests it’s all about YOUR story that I’m looking to capture.

So what are you waiting for? I would love it if you shared your story with me so together we can make some real good art.

When I set out to find a photographer, I knew that I wanted someone who could really capture the spirit of the day as opposed to taking a lot of highly stylized/posed pictures. Marcela fulfilled this and more.

Her photos have a depth, beauty and realness that so many wedding photos lack. I absolutely love the photos she took - which somehow manage to capture the magical setting, joy/vibrancy of the guests and those beautiful in between moments.

In addition to being such a talented photographer, Marcela was also wonderful to work with - responsive and organized from my first point of outreach. She followed-up regularly in the lead-up to the wedding and always responded to my questions promptly. At the wedding itself, Marcela made taking bridal party photos, family photos, etc. seamless and fun. She also managed to be present but not intrusive so that the photos she got really felt authentic.

I would highly recommend Marcela to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. She is so talented and a real professional.

Alex & Eddie

Marcela is amazing. From the moment you meet her, camera bag and cheesin’ smile in tow, her love for her work is gleaming and apparent. When shooting our engagement photos, she was thrilled to understand our vision and bring it to life. In addition to taking exceptionally beautiful photographs, she’s simply a true pleasure to work with. Thank you for capturing us as we are, Marcela!

I was coming from the other side of the country, with a very different and possibly very difficult project in mind that had to come together perfectly in only a few days. After talking to Marcela, viewing her portfolio and seeing how much energy she was putting into the planning my mind was totally at ease on the big day. The task at hand was an undercover shoot of a surprise proposal to my (now) fiancee. Everything went flawlessly, the photos came out great and we have an amazing photo album to show for Marcela's hard work.

Mike & Sheila

I couldn't say enough good things about her. She immediately made my fiancé feel comfortable and before we knew it we were laughing like best friends. She had so many unique and creative ideas for our waterfall shoot. She also had a great turn around for getting the photos back to us. I would 110% recommend Marcela!

Holly & Andrew

Marcela is just AMAZING! We booked her for our engagement pictures. She is quite a listener and showed great respect to our ideas for the engagement pics. Her creativity and artistic style were exactly what we were looking for, and she is so wonderful to work with, lots of laughter and fun during the shoot. What moved us most is that she cares deeply for her clients and is willing to try anything to deliver uniquely high-quality product. In order to get a perfect pic of me standing in water, she didn't even care to get her shoes all wet. Last of all, since we have a real short timeline and we had to get all pics within one month, she managed to give us a large selection of beautiful pictures to choose from right on time, which is very impressive! We highly recommend Marcela. She's an awesome person to work with. You won't regret it!
