We'll embrace the unique energy of the day & your authentic expression of love to create images that tell the full story of your wedding celebration.
While photographing, I encourage affection through playfulness & positivity. Through a combination of editorial portraiture and candid photojournalism, I'll guide you when necessary and offer my expertise, but I always want it to feel like you.
I believe that the best photographs come from showcasing the authentic and raw moments that make your relationship special. I'm passionate about nurturing your connection and bringing out the fire that makes your love story one-of-a-kind. Let's work together to capture your unique story and create photographs that truly feel like you.
My approach to image making is organic, cinematic, and full of joy and movement, making video a natural compliment. With my team, you'll have a seamless experience of photo & video to create a comprehensive visual record of your wedding. Our collaboration means that you'll have a stress-free experience on your big day, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the joy of the moment.

Life moves quickly, and every moment counts. With my sessions, I want to capture the essence of your unique journey and create lasting memories that you can revisit for years to come. From the familiar haunts of your neighborhood to your favorite daily spots like the local coffee shop or bar, I strive to capture the beauty of the everyday moments that make up your life. Let's work together to create a collection of photos that celebrate your journey and remind you of the joys that brought you to this moment.

Words cannot express the professionalism, kindness, & amazing experience
we had with Dacia. She photographed our engagement and elopement in California, and also our destination wedding celebration with family and friends in Mexico City. The photographs we received were stunning and she truly captured the joy of all three events. She made everything seem so effortless, and we couldn’t be happier with how our pictures turned out.
I am happily based in Mexico City, Mexico! I travel all over Mexico, and I work equally as often in California & New York, so be sure to reach out if you're planning your celebration there as well.
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. Location-based flat travel fees ensure 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 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 120 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.
