Why hire me?


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.

I am experienced in weddings of different cultural backgrounds, in different countries, fluent in English and Spanish, a member of the amazing Fearless Photographers, and part of Pittsburgh's first wedding Incubator: The Wedding Factory


Every couple is
and diversity
is the spice of life



I believe in:

Colorful things.
Dancing (a lot).
 Embracing spontaneity.
 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 Docu...What?


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


Love is Green


The core of Sandrachile
is a strong commitment to 


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 such as banana leaf, bamboo, or coconut fibers, and natural fiber mate finish papers.

I am a Black Sheep Vendor!


In an industry that promotes luxury and materialism, we 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.

Sandrachile Photography photos from the wedding are finally here, and what a great job she did!
I know she was very particular about taking the photos and the results show why! She made sure to capture everything we asked for along with adding her own fun touch. She was amazing to work with and we highly recommend her.

Sandra took pictures at our welcome dinner/Mehndi party for our wedding. She far exceeded our expectations!!! Not only is she is a delightful, warm person, but she is also a great photographer. She was thoughtful with what details to capture and she took so many great pictures of all of our guests in candid moments. The photo album is amazing and we are beyond thrilled to have a book of memories of our loved ones on such a special occasion. Thank you, Sandra!!

Sandra Who? 


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.



Party animal.

and a tiny bit crazy

My last name is Villarroel Pereira, when nobody could spell that, people started calling me Sandra Chile.
