All collections include collaborative timeline guidance, tailored recommendations for talented vendors such as planners, beauty teams, florists, and any other services you might need. I'll also include options for an engagement session, additional coverage for rehearsal dinner or other events, as well as albums and fine art prints. It's my goal to make this as fun and easy for you as possible. Connect with me via the contact page and we'll arrange a time to discuss details and go over any questions you might have. I'll walk you through the steps so you'll have a better idea of what to expect during the booking process and everything that comes after. While you're planning, I'm always available for questions or suggestions, just shoot me an email or a text – I mean it! I'm your teammate, advocate, and friend.
From our first meeting with her we felt extremely comfortable with the prospect of Dacia capturing our wedding day. She has a genuine interest in getting to know her clients and working to bring out their personalities. She gives you the space to be who you are but knows when to step in and direct to bring your best to the camera."
Dacia is one of those people. From our first meeting before our wedding, we felt comfortable knowing we were going to get a record of our day that felt genuine and beautiful."
She’s also the most pleasant person you may ever meet, which is incredibly important when you have to act natural with a camera in your face. Even in awkward moments like that, she’s got a knack for making you feel comfortable. Our photos came back more beautiful and special than we ever imagined."
I am happily based in Mexico City, Mexico! I travel all over Mexico, and I work equally as often in Southern California & New York, so be sure to reach out if you're planning your celebration there as well.
I can offer you my personal recommendations on other vendors such as florists, planners, and beauty teams to make your wedding celebration exactly what you picture.
Planning a destination wedding?
COUNT ME IN. I welcome worldwide travel! It's one of the best parts of my job, so I try to keep any travel fees to a minimum. I offer location-based flat travel fees so that you won't need to worry about unexpected expenses in the final hour.
And, no need to worry – I always arrive a day or two early to visit the venue, scout locations, and have everything organized before the wedding day. Working in a new, spectacular location is exhilarating and pushes me creatively. I've photographed all over the world, from Jamaica to Copenhagen, Colorado to Puerto Rico. No matter where you're headed, inquire!
The best way to approach this is to send me a message with all relevant details and info about you and your wedding plans! I love to create custom packages for my clients for their wedding day or even full weekend coverage. I also have special rates for weekday, winter, and intimate elopements, so if you're planning something out of the ordinary, be sure to let me know.
In my opinion – yes, absolutely, 100%!
Portraits, Love Session, Test Shoot – call it whatever you want - I love engagement sessions! Honestly, how many of us can say we love being photographed? I wanna change that! Think of the portrait session as a practice run - the best way for us to get to know each other, how we best work together, and to avoid feeling like the wedding day is like an awkward blind date! Bonus, you'll get more cute photos of you two for your save the dates, guest book, wedding website, time capsule, whatever – and I'll be able to get to know what works best for our particular dynamic for the wedding day.
Let's discuss it!
There are many factors that determine if a 2nd is a necessary addition or a luxurious inclusion, but the main one is guest count - if you are expecting more than 100 people its going to be a good idea to have the extra coverage for all the moments happening simultaneously. Some other reasons a 2nd may be necessary are: if you're not planning on a first look, if any part of the timeline overlaps (such as cocktail hour and the window of time to get detail shots) or if the two of you are getting ready in separate locations and you want coverage of both. I will happily offer you my advice and options when we talk.
I am all about this! I believe having a tangible album and prints is so important. Along with your high res downloads, your gallery includes a personalized store where you can order prints in the sizes that suit you best, calendars and even thank you cards featuring your photos! Ordering prints through a reputable lab makes a huge difference in quality, so I’ve intentionally chosen fine art papers so you can get the prints your photos deserve. I also offer custom designed, hand-made albums with museum quality paper, lay-flat binding, and a variety of cover options - linen, leather, silk and even velvet. I'm happy to show you some examples and collaborate on making your unique heirloom book.
Stay in the know about my travel dates, product sales, and exclusive client offers! I won't send too many emails, promise.
