Sandra Chile, the eye behind the lens.
Born and raised in Chile, now I live in the beautiful city of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania (USA).
I am a passionate rabbit lover, a ferocious advocate for animal welfare, and a supporter of conscious living.
I am in love with taking pictures of fascinating individuals, whom like myself, are free spirited, wanna travel the world, like to laugh out loud, wanna eat without gaining weight and most of all, want to never be silent about things that matter.
and a tiny bit crazy
Because I specialize in photographing FUN couples who like to do things a lil' bit different,
who treat their wedding day as a chance to celebrate their personalities,
and who celebrate their personalities by embracing the spontaneity of life.
When you hire me, you will have a photographer who "gets you" like a friend would, someone who understands that you are passionate about living, and will capture this special day with the intensity and creativity that your soul deserves.
I believe in:
Dancing (a lot).
Cookie tables and the chicken dance.
People look their best by just being themselves.
In giving back and caring about the environment.
In not discriminating against humans with different lifestyles and/or beliefs.
Wedding documentary (also known as wedding photo journalism) is a refreshing way that highlights moments and stories and the beauty of candid life.
As opposed to the standardized set of perfect cliché-looking shots (“let’s do the looking out the window shot, ok, now look into your watch, ok, now tie your shoes, ok, now button your cuffs,etc), photojournalism seeks to be real.
Instead of creating picture perfect scenes for every moment, I strive to capture the truth and realism in the actual moment, and rather than having me, the wedding photographer guiding and directing the day, I stay back and let things happen naturally as they unfold, in order to tell the story of your wedding
We care about your future, so we offer albums, photo books, and prints that are sustainable, and have future generations in mind.
We care about the things you care about, so we do not use any animal sourced materials. Instead of leather albums, we offer amazing compassionate alternatives (vegan) such as banana leaf, bamboo, or coconut fibers, and natural fiber matte finish papers.
In an industry that promotes luxury and materialism, I believe in a wedding industry that is fair, so we fight fiercely against forced child marriage by donating a portion of every fee to
Too Young To Wed, an organization that promotes the end of this practice.
We also support alternatives that are ethically conscious, by using products that are made in America or where labor laws are in place in order to protect workers.
