hi there!

I’m Nelly! I’m a traveling wedding photographer based in San Diego, CA .

I didn’t always have this business: shooting amazing humans who are in love, exploring new places, being a part of people’s big day... actually not long ago, you could have found me slinging coffee as your local barista, *although the free coffee was a perk*, I knew I had to pursue my passion. This. Capturing and connecting with people while exploring places is what fuels me, makes me all giddy inside, and continues to keep me curious about the world.

today you can find me…

Snuggled up at home with my bff/husband Ritchie, drinking another cup of coffee, caring after house plants, reading a good book, cooking up a vegan dinner, taking walks by the beach, and camping with our friends + family,


fun facts:

I’m bilingual (spanish), I love shooting on film cameras, when I was a kid I wanted to be an archeologist in Egypt, Neil Young’s Heart of Gold is my favorite song, and I’m kinda obsessed with spending more time outside.
