About me


My name is Hellena and I am so thrilled to see you here. I grew up in Southern California and relocated to the Bay Area in 2015! I have been doing photography since 2012 and specialize as an elopement photographer, weddings, engagements, and maternity

I am a full-time advocate for gender-based violence and an abolisher of mass incarceration of black and brown folks. I am a fur mama, Centro Americana 100%, hot Cheetos with Limon lover, wife and SOON TO BE MAMA!


One of the most important things for me during a session is to make sure you are comfortable, stunting, and having a blast! Photography for me isn't just a hobby but a genuine passion. Every client who decides to hire me ends up becoming my friend or long-term client. 


On that note, thank you for considering me to be a part of your amazing day. It is truly a joy for me. Please don't hesitate to ask any questions you might have.


Once again, gracias for visiting my site and I hope to hear from you soon!
