i love when my clients are also artists, because they understand the value of hiring a photographer for their own unique vision. creativity hits me differently depending on who i’m working with and having my clients’ support gives me total comfort and creative freedom to perform and be myself. when a couple hires me and tells me “you’re in control”, i can promise you the photos will be 100x better than when a couple says “we like your work but we really want you to edit like this...” once i hear that, i am already stressed. a tip for couples looking for a photographer: telling them how you want them to work will crush their vision, their creativity, and their excitement on your day.
catherine and elfego are classically trained musicians who met while in the mariachi band at stanford. they planned their wedding from DC and flew into san antonio just a few days before. their friends flew in from all over the world and performed during their ceremony and reception. they celebrated their day on dia de los muertos in a way that was perfectly “them” - by serenading their friends, family, and each other while honoring their loved ones who had passed. what a day this was, and i cannot say enough great things about them. 🖤
