Couples who care about the planet
LOVE STORIES THAT ARE CHANGING THE WORLD
A socially responsible way to getting married
kind hearts + fierce mindS + brave spirits
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 because of pollution. 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 inspiring 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.
Sandrachile engages 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 (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!

I was born and raised in Chile, in the midst of a household with lots of abuse.
I ran away from home at 15, and I lived in the street until I was 21. I survived those years thanks to people’s kindness, and performing in the street as a clown.
During the time in the street I met Nick, an American Marine who’s ship sunk in my hometown.
A few years later, I came to America determined to find him, with only 1 luggage, no papers, and 20 bucks in my pocket.
When I found him we got married (yup, that fast because we kinda had to).
And here we are, 12 years later. We have a beautiful family with 2 fur babies and we live in the amazing city of Pittsburgh
I became a photographer out of the necessity to explain my humans back at home what my new life in the “gringo-land” was all about.
I think I have such a crazy love story that I have developed an addiction to connect to other love stories.
I am obsessed with taking pictures of fascinating individuals who are like me, free-spirit, who wanna travel the world, who love to laugh out loud, who love to help others, who wanna save ALL the animals; but most importantly, who want to never be silent about the things that truly matter.
I asked people on facebook to describe me, this is what they said:
… and this is also how I describe my business approach, and my pictures :)

Money, money, money…
It’s hard to talk about this, specially when weddings are SOOOO expensive, but here is the thing; with me, your money is truly making a difference. We give to charity, we plant trees, we feed homeless, we restore dignity, and we make sure that your wedding photography experience transcends beyond the wedding day and beyond the wedding itself.
Your wedding is super important, and I want it to be a reflection of who you are, this is why I can’t make you fit into a package. Each couple is unique, each wedding is different and has different needs, so every couple deserves a custom experience. Through talking, we’ll find the best way to align what you need with your budget….
In the meantime I can tell you that weddings cost anywhere from $2000 to $6000, and most couples spend around $3000.
Engagements go from $350 to $1000
And micro weddings start at $1500
