It has been such a pleasure getting to know Hugo and Lupe. The way their eyes light up when they glance over their shoulder at each other- their love and chemistry is undeniable. It didn’t take long for me to see how easy-going they are or how much they love to laugh and have a great time where ever they are, but also their warm kind hearts for the world around them. It’s not just in their jobs that they’ve chosen to help people, it spills over into how they treat and care for any one in their path. I know family and friendships are so valuable to them; these values are woven into our conversations together. All this makes me so unbelievably excited for their wedding Summer of 2020– I can’t wait to watch them say “I Do”! There’s no doubt in my mind the world better with these two together.

Plus.. I know they can bust a move on the dance floor. I’m certain it’s going to be quite the dance party!!!

Check out their BEAUTIFUL & DREAMY engagement shoot I never wanted to end!


Congratulations Lupe and Hugo on your engagement! What an HONOR it is to photograph your love story.

All my love,
