Hi there!

Welcome and thank you for stopping by! I’m Carmela, a wedding and lifestyle photographer based in Arizona. 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.

I have had the wonderful opportunity to meet many AMAZING people along the way and hope to be able to meet YOU and hear your story. Let’s adventure together!

"I cannot say enough about Carmela and what a pleasure it was working with her! She is so sweet and put us at ease through the whole process. The planning process was incredibly thorough and we got shots of everything we wanted. The pictures themselves are STUNNING and MAGICAL! She captured the best moments of the whole event in the most beautiful way. We are so grateful to Carmela for lending her talent to us for our wedding day :) I urge all other brides to do the same!!!"

-BRIANA

"Carmela is such a joy to work with! She brings energy and enthusiasm to her photo shoots, making the picture taking process a truly fun experience. She brings out the best in everyone—especially in her photos! She’s done several shoots for me and my family, and to this day, my favorite photos were taken by her."

-SARAH

"Carmela has been our family photographer for a long time and has captured so many important life events for us. She is easygoing and makes us feel comfortable in front of the camera, yet is extremely professional and communicates with us very well. We love working with her, have recommended her to several of our friends and family, and will continue to do so in the future!"

-DAMIA

"Carmela was AMAZING. We loved the quality of our photos, and she had great instincts for how to pose us. I'm a pretty awkward person in front of a camera or not, and I felt very comfortable with her. It felt like working with a good friend. She was professional and fun, and helped us figure out what we needed. It was a pleasure having her on board to help with our wedding, and I hope we'll have an opportunity to use her services again in the future!"
