On my late 20s, I decided to travel, adventure, learn English… I didn’t speak any English at all… and even though I’m very fluent now, I sometimes make a few mistakes… so pardon me if you catch any, its not sloppiness, its just that English is my second language and I’m continuously learning.
When I look back to that initial idea, I’d never guess that I’d become a Massachusetts Wedding Photographer, but I see how courageous and very stupid I was… not that I regret it, not one bit…but I had no idea what I was getting myself into… it was suppose to be a 2 year thing and I’d go back home… well, that was November of 2002… its a long story and I don’t mind if you ask when we meet… but I ended up arriving in the US December of 2002 with only $200 in my pocket and a heart full of dreams mixed with fears and disappointments. Fast-forward 4 years, I started my photography business. Shy at first as a part time job, but curious, excited, willing to learn everything about photography. In 2008 I gave up my “real job” to be a full time wedding and portrait photographer and here is where I still am today. With a lot more knowledge, I’m no longer shy behind the camera, I’m very confident and happy about what I’m so blessed to do for a living. Now as a full-time wedding and portrait photographer based on central Massachusetts, I work as a Massachusetts wedding photographer locally and also as a destination wedding photographer traveling anywhere in the globe. I love learning about new cultures, traveling, eating pasta, cheese and sipping a good red wine. A perfect day off would be sleeping late or curling up on a couch with my sweet husband Carlos binge watching movies or spending time with my family.
As you can see I’m a very open book and I love to invite people in. I’m adventurous and I thrive on a fast paced environment. I’m a problem solver and love challenges. I’m also a romantic and wear my heart on my sleeve! So don’t be so surprise if you see me wiping away a tear during the touching moments of your wedding day.
If you made this far I want to thank you for reading about my personal life adventure. I believe we are in journey, you heard a bit of mine, I can’t wait to hear yours!
