Welcome and thank you for stopping by! I’m Carmela, a wedding and elopement photographer based in Arizona but will travel anywhere for love! I am married to my sweet husband and we are parents to the most adorable dog that we rescued. I am a lover of all things outdoorsy and get fueled and inspired by beautiful desert sunsets, windy mountain tops, and that fresh forest air.
My photography journey started when I picked up my dad’s camera my senior year of high school and from then on, I never could put my camera down. The reason I love photography is simple – I love people and I love stories. I am passionate about capturing the genuine interactions, spontaneous moments, and candids that make your personality and love unique. When a couple asks me to join them on one of the best days of their lives, it is something I take great responsibility and joy in. When I see the way you laugh together, the way you look at each other, and your wild passion for each other - I see your love as a work of art and it’s such an honor to capture those moments.
Exploring new places is one of my absolute favorite things to do which is why I love when my couples choose outdoor and epic locations! I feel so blessed to be able to travel as a full time photographer to breathtaking destinations for weddings and elopements. Sometimes, I still can’t believe that I get to do this full time and I thank God for this incredible blessing that I call my job! I have had the wonderful opportunity to meet and become great friends with many AMAZING people along the way and hope to be able to meet YOU and hear your story. Let’s adventure together!
