Elopement in Captiva Island, FL | Thais & Patrik

Thais & Patrik’s intimate beach elopement in Captiva Island was a turn of events… but a beautiful one at that! If you don’t know, Captiva Island is on the West coast of Florida and the sunsets on the West coast of any place can be pretty epic.

The Bonneville Salt Flats is THE place for this. 70s inspired? Sure! Wedding anniversary shoot?


5 Ways to A Small Wedding

Sometimes I’m the kind of person who is all, “go big or go home” and other times I like to stick to the “less is more” card. When it comes to weddings, I like to subscribe to the less is more school of thought. Hear me out! Times are changing and a lot of newly engaged couples are realizing they don’t want to spend a ton of money on an extravagant wedding. Or they want to keep things intimate, without other people’s input, without sticking to traditions or strict timelines… and that’s okay! To each its own. The beauty about



I’m Maria and I’ve been a full-blown photography addict since before I even owned a camera. So… about 15 years. I’ve lived in Florida over half of my life now, and while it has fostered my deep appreciation for tropical weather, loud gatherings under the sun, and art, my roots are in the quiet solitude of the mountains where I was actually born, in Argentina.
