I send helpful guides when you book me as your photographer because I know photography is usually one of the first things booked. There’s still lots of wedding planning to go before the wedding day! I have worked with incredible vendors throughout my career and I’ve compiled a list of my top recommendations to help my clients. When it comes time to plan an engagement session, I’ll ask if there is a meaningful place you’d like to take photos. If not, I’ll provide suggestions based on your preferences. I also help you to select outfits for your engagement session; I love when couples send me their options and I can help pick a favorite! Because of my experience as a photographer, you can also trust that I will be able to adapt to whatever comes our way on your special day.
You Get the Expertise of a Professional.
From the day you inquire, I will provide you with support and so much excitement. Telling your story is something I take very seriously, so I make sure to build connections with every couple that books with me so that I can know who you are and what’s important to you. I love getting to know your personalities as individuals, seeing why the two of you are a perfect fit. I also follow along on Instagram so that I can keep up with wedding plans and get as excited for their big day as any friend would be! I send questionnaires and stay in contact with my couples not only to learn the wedding day details, but also to ask about family dynamics, how you are feeling, and where I can support them. All of the other wedding vendors you hire will be there leading up to your wedding day, but I will be there all day with you! That’s why I make sure you feel like you have a friend behind the camera, not a stranger.
You Get the Support of a Trusted Friend.

Images that highlight you. Authentically.
By the time we get to your session or wedding celebration you'll feel comfortable being your most authentic self and your photos will reflect that. I edit every image to highlight the natural beauty of your surroundings.
I have always wanted to travel and see the world. Now, if I could combine two of my favorite things; traveling and photographing all things love. Nothing could excite me more than to get the chance to explore new destinations with couples celebrating the most important day in their lives.
Boudoir is a great option for brides to gift to their soon to be spouses, but it also doesn't have have to be a gift for someone else, it can also be for you! Boudoir is so empowering, especially for women who have gone through something like a change in a relationship, an achievement or to celebrate themselves as they are now and see how truly beautiful they are in this present moment! My goal as your boudoir photographer is to take those feelings of awkwardness going into the shoot and turn it into confidence all while celebrating YOU! You are awesome and gorgeous and I want you to FEEL it during the entire experience! Which means, while we are shooting, after you leave and at the very end when you are looking at your final gallery! I want your breath to be taken away when you see the photos of yourself and say “OH MY GOSH!!!! THAT’S ME?!?!”!!!
I am here to be your biggest hype woman, and change the way you look at yourself forever!

Lucia was so much fun to work with! She made things so comfortable for us! Especially when I’m super camera shy. We laughed pretty much the whole time. She is easy to communicate with and really captures the most beautiful moments. We couldn’t recommend her more!
Patrice + Brent
We were so thrilled to have Lucia be our photographer! She drove quite a ways to do our wedding and then we drug her up a mountain to get shots of Mount Rainier in our wedding attire. She helped think of poses we had never thought of and was very fun and delightful to talk and work with. She knows what she’s doing and what she’s looking for and will guide you every step of the way. We can’t wait to see our pictures with her creative direction. Thank you Lucia!
Alexis + Michael
Lucia was wonderful! She always responded back to me quickly always. The detail and attention she put into her photos for my wedding was amazing! I highly recommend!!
My approach is with a fine art/journalistic style. What is most important to me is that your images tell an honest and heartfelt story of your day. I love beautiful natural light, whether that is dim, overcast or bright and sunny. Your images should be an accurate reflection of the day, not just my editing style.
How would you describe your style of photography?
I always want to make the best of a bad situation, so if it's raining or overcast - I'm still happy to shoot as it can be such a beautiful end result!
WHAT IF IT RAINS ON MY DAY?
In short, no. I don't share RAW files because of two reasons, first is that they are unfinished work. As a photographer, it is a huge part of my role to edit them. Photos will only be delivered as finished products that meet my personal quality standards. I love to edit and I take my time to carefully craft each one.
Can we have access to the RAW files?
Two words....HECK YES!!!
One of the biggest perks of my job is the ability to travel. If your wedding is outside of Washington State - let us know in your inquiry form. We make custom proposals for all of our inquiring couples and once we have some more information regarding your wedding day - we can give you more detailed pricing for travel!
Do you travel for out of state or destination weddings?
While I am constantly hustling on your day and have shot large weddings alone, I do recommend you consider selecting a package with a second photographer especially for weddings with over 100 people. I can only be in one place at one time, so a second photographer ensures you have all of your angles covered for those once in a lifetime moments.
Are you the only photographer on site?
Yes! It's important to me that you are comfortable with your investment in me. After the initial 50% retainer is paid and the contract signed. I'm always happy to set up an payment schedule for your remaining balance, which can be customized according to your needs. :)
Do you offer payment plans?
In order to book, we require a signed contract and a retainer payment. For all services the retainer payment is 50% of the total service cost.
