Born & raised in Mexico City, I've been fascinated by travel, people, and cultures ever since I can remember. This fascination grew into a hobby, and now a full-time career, with capturing people, places and moments through photography. After graduating from university in Mexico with a Bachelor's degree in Marketing & Communications, I decided to dream big and moved to New York City. As an immigrant, this was no easy feat. I started from zero waiting tables, studying photography while simultaneously bartending, DJing and sharing the stage with Dj's like Tiesto and Moby. Soon, I found my calling in travel & wedding photography as not only my passion but my door to the outside world. After living 16 years on the Upper Westside in NYC we sold everything and travel the world for a full year, nonstop.
I am the founder of TravelingLamas and Unveiled-Weddings in NYC a successful wedding agency in Manhattan. Now, I split my time between New York City and Mexico's Riviera Maya (6 months in NYC & 6 months in Mexico) capturing everything from Riviera Maya weddings to engagement sessions, surprise proposals, commercial photography, Real Estate (Live The Tulum Dream) and lifestyle, in addition to pursuing travel photography as much as possible. This passion for love stories, travel and cultures has made me a happy nomad and I am also available for weddings and photography projects in further destinations around the world. :)
