You are loved here, always. 

"Finding a photographer at first was very hard. I found Mayra on Instagram and when I spoke with her, every stress and anxiety I felt was gone. She is on point, organized, and straight to the point. The way she captures the pictures is what I want for my big day. When I booked with her and did my engagement session…WOW! All my family who saw our photos were amazed and even said we picked the right photographer who captured every cute moment. I can ask her for anything and she always has an answer. Mayra is worth booking an appointment with!"

I'm so excited that you’re here!

I’m a Chicago based wedding  photographer obsessed with love, life and memories.

I value..

I care about the time and quality of YOUR MEMORIES so much  that I limit the number of weddings I take at a time to ensure the quality is THE BEST. 

QUALITY

HONESTY

INCLUSIVITY

I believe honesty and openness are so important for your wedding day. You need to stay true to what and who you are. You can expect honesty here, always.

Everyone is loved and welcomed here, always. 

my editing style -

unique, fun, and true to you

I love your melonin! Your skin needs to look just like it does every day. I take pride in making sure I pay attention to the details of who you are. My editing style is natural to true. Meaning, you are are going to look just like who you are. No funky colors, no melonin changes, none of that.

I believe should have endless memories. 

With that being said, I do not do body altercations. Meaning, I love who you are including your body, skin, hair, eyes and so on, Now, if you have a huge pimple on your forehead on your day, I won't let that live there.

My rule: If it won't be there next week, I will take care of it. 

​​I SPECIALIZE IN:WEDDINGS. ELOPEMENTS. COUPLES SESSIONS.

meet my babes!

my forever wedding guest

We are high school sweethearts and tequila lovers.

When we go out for monthly Friday date nights, we love going to our favorite restaurants and maxing out. We get some buckets, appetizers, bomb seafood from La Costa and finish off with a Banana milkshake from Margies.

    

We text each other good morning and good night every day. It truly is the little things that continue to spark years later. We send each other endless fun gifs and I can proudly say, I made him a Starbucks lover.

Fun facts about me

Giving gifts are my love language 
I’m a summer baby, A.K.A a Cancer 
My photos on my phone are 85% of random dogs I see 
I love driving with my windows down
I play the same 5 songs over and over again
Molly Cupcakes & Starbucks make my day every time 

FUN FACTS ABOUT ME

I grew up being the family translator at school, stores, banks, etc. As I grew, I knew I needed to better serve my community and I needed to speak Spanish, not only understand Spanish. Now, I'm here at weddings making abuelas comfortable and making sure your mom knows where you are.

Bilingual! 

Also proud to be...

Born and raised in Chicago, but Puerto Rico will forever be my home away from home. Grew up eating alcapurrias, carne frita or bistec con arroz con gandules, Coquito is for christmas and avena is for breakfast.

Driving through the mountains, seeing the palm trees, drinking aqua de coco, being on the beach in Manati or buying donuts at the local Walmart outside in Guayama is where my heart is at. 


PROUD TO BE PUERTO RICAN 

Stop trying to make everyone happy. you're not tequila. your wedding day is about you.

BAD BUNNY
BEYONCE
