        Hello, and welcome! My name is Cecilia. I specialize in intentional, organic imagery that truly embodies you and your love. I want your pics to feel real and natural to you. I will get to know you, your style, your love connections with your family and friends, the music you like, and integrate this into your custom photography experience. I'm her to photograph you, your love, your families, as you truly are, at this point in your life.

        These are the most fun..

        Let’s get real into 'em. This is not your cheesy, show up for an hour, stand in a field and smile type of shoot. This is a stylized, intentional shoot that you’ll look back at when you’re 70 and say “wow, I remember what our lives felt like back then (and damn, we looked hot)”. We can shoot at the location you went to on your first date, or the spot you camped at last year, or that spot you’ve never been to, and have been waiting for a reason to go. Or we’ll bring it back home and shoot at your place, or the place you grew up, or on a rooftop, overlooking the city you fell in love in. After we narrow down a location, I’ll send you my outfit guide with specific advice about what to wear, and will help guide you throughout the planning process. Feel free to text or email with outfit ideas and I’ll give my honest feedback to make sure everything is cohesive. The day of the shoot, I like to get super creative. It’s my job to make you feel comfortable being yourself—whether that’s flirty, silly, ridiculous, or tranquil… we’ll relax, play, and have fun.

        —Engagements, anniversary, boudoir, and maternity sessions.

        The adventure day

        Once booked the first thing I’ll do is send out my adventure guide. This guide is full of information on how to get the most out of your shoot. I’ll send over my outfit guide to get us started on planning. Feel free to send me any inspo. you have, or pics of outfits you’re into. I’ll provide open and honest feedback about what will look best. I can also provide you with color scheme inspo. based on the location we choose. I'll give you a follow on Instagram and check out any mood boards or Pinterest boards you've got. This helps me to get an even better feel for your personalities/individual styles. By the time we shoot together, we’ll feel like old friends.

        One of my favorite parts of the process! This is where the final story starts to come to life. After 2 weeks, grab some wine and get cosy because here's the final unveiling. Hop online to view your slide show and gallery.

        The day of the shoot will be a blast. You’ll get to soak in the beautiful location you’ve chosen, taking pictures, laughing, hugging, and just being present. Don’t worry, I’ll direct you and and make sure the two of you feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera! Don’t stress if this is new to you—I will give you plenty of direction and you’ll ease into it. I’m a bit of a goofball, so plan on me making silly jokes and keeping things light-hearted.

        I am truly honored to be able to create these memories with you.

        My Style

        I would describe my style as editorial meets adventure, meets documentary. I love a dramatic portrait just as much as I love an epic backdrop, and as much as I love real/authentic moments with friends and family. I love to incorporate all of these vibes together, in order to create a full and dynamic story of your day.

        I am not a heavy editor, my goal is to keep the image feeling how it felt in that exact moment. I edit each image individually, making minor tweaks and paying great attention to detail and skin tones.

        Natural and easy going is where my style lives. I try to match the vibe and energy you bring and echo it back to you. I watch for your small and seemingly unconscious connections and I look to capture them.

        This is where the magic begins. It's where you ask me on a date as your third wheel, and i say yes, and we become bff's
