Hi, I’m Lavel, an Indiana born, New Mexico raised half Dominican behind the camera. I began photography seriously about 10 years ago. I wanted a part-time gig that would allow me to stay at home with my babies, this was the perfect fit. I met my husband online (gasp) 17 years ago. We have been married for over 16 years now and we have two beautiful children. My passion for wedding photography comes from a need to create, challenge myself, and ultimately create some unbelievable pretty wedding portraits for YOU! Getting to know each couple and their unique story is my fav part of the job. I’m secretly super pumped when we all become friends and get to spend a whole DAY together! I can’t wait to meet you and work together. I value love and the amazing reality that is marriage done well, and I am thrilled to be a part of the start of the journey for every couple I work with!
“I could not be more happy with our engagement and wedding photos! Lavel is such an encouraging, supportive, conscientious and artistically intuitive person; she brings all this out in her photos. She has such vision, she encouraged us to have a sunset ceremony and the result was fantastic.”
“I will always recommend Lavel to anyone who has any photography needs. She did an amazing job on our engagement photos and wedding photos. She made taking photos orginized and easy and made the whole experience enjoyable. Also the quality of the shots you get back are amazing, she catches the light just right and edits the photos just enough to make them look flawless but not overly done. She is amazing at getting the candid shots as well as the posed photos as well. We are still getting compliments on our photos and they are so enjoyable to look back at and remeber the day.”
“Lavel is hands down the best photographer we could’ve ever asked for. Lavel photographed our engagement session and wedding within this last year and will be photographing all of our family sessions in the future. My husband and I were beyond happy with how all of our pictures came out. Lavel is amazingly creative, efficient, and talented. We could not be more appreciative of Lavel and the beautiful pictures we got to remind us of our happiest day ever.”
