I’ve found that couples think it’s super hard to look romantic or natural in front of the camera. And I don’t blame you guys for assuming that—you’ve probably never done this before! But with me by your side you can not only do this but you can SLAY at this.

I guarantee I'll make you laugh... just try me. On your wedding day I'll be capturing it all but I'll also be cracking jokes with your family and friends. I want you to have fun and I want everyone involved that day to enjoy the photo taking process so guess what? They actually look HAPPY in the photos! 

I'm gonna break it down for you real right now. If you hire an awkward middle aged dude with a camera to follow you around for 8 hours on the biggest day of your life, you're gonna regret it. Your friends are gonna regret it and your photos will reflect it. With me by your side that will not happen!

P.S. it's wedding day and you need a drink? I gotchu. You need someone to help fluff your dress? I'm here. I've got your back 110% and I'll make the whole process enjoyable while I'm there. 


I will make this easy and fun. 🙌🏼

But are they really?

I don't even know where to start!  We are from Texas and have family in New Mexico so my husband and I knew we always wanted to marry on the mountains, so we did. Just the two of us. She captured the real us at the peak of the mountain. She made us feel so comfortable and made us feel like we'd known her for years. We weren't shy to tell her anything. She captured our love story & our vows. It was perfect and we are forever grateful.

 SOMETHING ABOUT HER JUST STOOD OUT. SHE MADE ME FEEL SO COMFORTABLE FROM THE VERY START.

Arielei is an amazing photographer. She did everything from our engagement shoot, to our wedding and she did a fabulous job! Not only is she amazing at what she does, but overall she is such a great person. We just love her! Her use of light is phenomenal and I just can't get over her eye for beautiful shots. She really incorporated everything my husband Josh and I wanted in our photos, and for that we are so grateful. Thank you Arielei! 

SHE REALLY INCORPORATED EVERYTHING WE WANTED IN OUR PHOTOS AND FOR THAT WE ARE SO GRATEFUL.

Arielei is your girl! She starts with amazing and very efficient communication, wanting to know more about you and your fiancé... She is the most pleasant vendor I worked with. She sees the sentimental value in objects personal to you. Whether it be the dress itself, or a pair of shoes, she takes pride in the simplest things and knows more often than naught those are where the best pictures come from.

IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR A PHOTOGRAPHY EXPERIENCE AS UNIQUE AS YOUR WEDDING, LOOK NO FURTHER.

Arielei is the sweetest person you will ever meet! Her craft and skill in photography, especially capturing the most specials shots, goes beyond what anyone could ask for! And she does everything with a beautiful smile on her face. We were certainly blessed to be able to work with her for our engagement pics and for our wedding! 

WE WERE CERTAINLY BLESSED TO BE ABLE TO WORK WITH HER FOR OUR  WEDDING!
