I’m a documentary wedding photographer based in Los Angeles, shooting weddings and elopements throughout California. I focus on real, candid moments; I’ll be a fly-on-the-wall and let you be present in the full joy of your celebration.
When I’m photographing, I’m always seeking vivid colors, real emotions, gestures and body language that tell the story between people. I focus intently on the people in front of me and their unique story. I approach every wedding like Les Blank, a documentarian that I admire… wide open listening, looking for who these people really are. And photographing things not just how they look, but how they feel! I aim to photograph real life, how it really looks in front of us — which is different than how it looks in a mirror, or through a cameraphone lens.
How I cater to offbeat weddings
I seek out those who are turned off by the Wedding Industrial Complex; folks who want to celebrate their love and the joining of their cultures & communities. I think that everyone deserves to have beautiful pictures of themselves, especially on their wedding day.
I am a queer non-binary Latinx photographer, working with a team of LGBT WoC photographers; because of our perspective (that of “las otras) we are uniquely suited to photographing other people who exist in liminal spaces.
Beyond that, I also tend to attract, well — offbeat people! I’ve shot weddings in libraries, backyards, parks, beaches, and video game arcades. I’m about to shoot a wedding featuring an Aquabats pool party. And the previous wedding involved traditional mariachi outfits and horchatas-to-go. Whatever is special to you, and however you want to celebrate it: I can capture that spark.
“How do I even put this? Rebecca was simply amazing. She was professional, responsive, prompt, timely, so sweet, so inviting, and made us feel really comfortable. Her photography captures all of the feelings we were having on our wedding day. I could not recommend her more.” -- Roshell, 2018. See more testimonials here!
I love offbeat wedding couples! You can get 10% off your wedding album order if you find me via Offbeat Brides. Make sure to mention it during our consultation :)
