Since 2017, couples throughout Central Texas trusted us to capture their once-in-a-lifetime events as truly artistic imagery.
Behind The Lens
Hi, I’m Raquel, a born and raised Texas girl who believes in the intersecting power of love and art.
Known for my unique editing style and relationship-driven approach, I believe that every love story is unique and worthy of becoming a work of art.
A Lifelong Pursuit Of Captivating Imagery
Above all, my goal is to give you the kind of photos that hold a multitude of emotions, an enviable style, and deeply felt stories.
Even as a kid, I loved photography, taking pictures with disposable cameras as often as I could. Then - in my mid-20s - my husband gifted me a Canon point-and-shoot, and I embarked on a journey, one that would take my photography to the next level. While I knew next to nothing about professional photography, it captivated me.
I was enamored with Annie Leibowitz and her dramatic, posed portraiture, but I also felt especially drawn to photography that blurred the lines between reality and fantasy. The influence from these photographers remains a foundation for all my work.
Filled with confidence and techniques from completing the course, I decided to recreate a picture I saw in a fashion magazine (with my friend as the subject.) The resulting image made me want to jump up and down with joy, and I continue to feel the same way every time I'm behind the camera.
Because I believe every photo tells a story, my work is filled with natural light and candid moments - the kind that you that will hold your story for future generations.
