A socially responsible way to getting married

It is hard to think on having a big party when we see so much need around us.
We live in a time where we have political chaos left to right, we see how our planet dies slowly due to contamination. We are the silent witnesses of wars, and we hear the consequences of gun violence.

It was hard for me to witness all this while working on an industry that is all about opulence, so I created a way to bring together wedding photography while being socially responsible, committed to inspire couples to make the conscious decision of walking into marriage with an attitude of gratitude, giving a little something back, taking care of the planet and creating social impact. 

In order to do this, I engage proactively with opportunities to use weddings to impact the community, like delivering leftovers from the wedding to homeless people (pictures below), bringing flowers to nursing homes, and connecting couples with other vendors who are giving back.

Although I live most of the year in Pittsburgh PA, in the north east of USA, I travel all over the world documenting couples who are willing to embrace their wedding day in a more ethical and intentional way. 

So far I have worked in NYC, Florida, California, Mexico, Bolivia, Chile, Spain, Croatia, Miami, Missouri, Puerto Rico, and Hungary.

I am excited to meet couples willing to
change the most wasteful and vain industry into a
powerful movement to do good!

These are some pictures of when I deliver food to homeless after a wedding day.






 

 

 

Sandra Who?

I am the eye behind the lens.
I am an immigrant, born and raised in Chile,
but now I live in the beautiful city of Pittsburgh in the United States.

I am in love with taking pictures of fascinating individuals, who like myself, are free-spirited, wanna travel the world, love to laugh out loud, love to help others, wanna eat without gaining weight; but most importantly, want to never be silent about the things that truly matter.

SANDRA + CHILE
So I never forget who I am or where I came from. My origins keep me humble and grounded, and I want to always remember that.
