isn’t 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 constantly hear the consequences of gun violence, hate, and terrorist attacks…

It was hard for me to witness all this while working on an industry that is all about opulence, so I decided to do something, and 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 sending a positive message out to a world in need.

Thank you for the thoughtful gift and card. It was so unexpected, and reinforced the fact that you are not the kinda photographer just looking to fill us their weekends and make an extra buck.

Sandra Who?

 

 

 

      

588-ASHLEY-NICOLE-ES.JPG

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 had sink in my hometown.
A few years later, I came to America determined to find him, with barely any english, 1 luggage, no papers, and only 20 bucks in my pocket.
When I found him we got married (yup, that fast).
Now,13 years later. We have a beautiful family with 2 fur babies and we live in the amazing city of Pittsburgh

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.

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 remain that way.
Why Sandrachile?

“I’m here for those who want to never be silent about the things that truly matter.”

Money, money, money…

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….

Weddings are expensive, and I get it! However, if you hire me, your money is truly making a difference.
We give to charity, (we are even launching one!) we plant trees, we feed homeless, we restore dignity, and we make sure that your wedding photography experience is chilled, personal, and transcends beyond just one day. So if you want to talk, hit below :D
