a more in-depth look at some of my favorite sessions throughout the years
Lesley and Christian’s Florida Keys destination wedding at Islander Resort Islamorada was full of color and maximalism – two of my favorite things! They went ALL out for their destination wedding, not sacrificing aesthetics, decor, or fun. It was such a privilege to spend the day with these two and all of their love, and […]

My passion for photography started when I was in high school. My older sister took it up and began bringing a camera with her everywhere she went- including on a family vacation overseas to Israel and Poland- and it sparked my curiosity in creating images as reminders for the future of the beautiful things I […]
"I am absolutely obsessed with the final work of my engagement photos! I’ve been getting so many compliments of how beautiful my photos are. My fiancé and I were nervous at first, but Almida made us feel so comfortable in the front of the camera. After the shoot my fiancé and I talked about how much fun we had. There were so many laughs shared and this experience is something I’ll always remember. She brought my vision to life and guided us through different poses. Overall the photos are amazing and I am so glad to have them to cherish forever."
"Almida and I are coworkers, and I would definitely entrust my life to her as she is such an amazing nurse. Little did I know that she is also a truly talented and awesome photographer. I am in awe of how beautiful our photos turned out. Photoshoots are totally out of my husband and I's comfort zone but Almida made it so fun and memorable. We were laughing and joking the whole time. She was so patient with us and made us feel comfortable. She goes above and beyond just to capture the best photos. Definitely worth it and we highly recommend her."
"I cannot recommend Almida enough, she is a dream to work with! I am so glad our mutual friend recommended her to me. I am sure my husband and I were an awkward bunch in front of the camera but she made us feel at ease and not awkward at all. She had amazing tips and we could definitely tell that she knows what she is doing. The turn around time for the photos were pretty quick as well. We got our sneak peek in just a couple of days and fully edited photos not too long after. We both were in awe looking at our photos through her eyes. I will truly treasure these photos forever. I am not exaggerating when I say that she is the best photographer that I have worked with and will definitely be booking her for future shoots."
"Highly recommend! I was recommended to Almida through a friend. She came with us to Cancun, Mexico to do a destination wedding. She far surpassed all our expectations. Throughout the wedding planning process, she was very responsive to all our questions. She is professional, easy to laugh and be comfortable with, and so fun to be around. Almida has a natural eye for creating beautiful pictures. There were times were I was nervous about locations of pictures but she said to trust her and I’m SO glad I did. Every picture in every place she took us was AMAZING. She is a true artist. She made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. Everyone in my wedding loved her and made a new friend. I eventually made her put her camera away and dance with us! Our final pictures bring tears to my eyes. She captured such amazing moments that we can relive everyday. We couldn’t be happier with our decision to hire Almida!"
"We did our engagement shoot with Almida and had such an incredible experience! She went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect for us, including making the long drive with us to shoot at the gorgeous Mt Rainier National Park. I was so worried about feeling awkward in front of the camera and that coming across in our photos, but Almida had a ton of tricks up her sleeve to help us loosen up and get comfortable. We got our “sneak peek” within just a couple of days and our final edits just a few weeks after that. We have an amazing collection of photos that we are thrilled to share with our friends and family. I would recommend her to anyone! Thank you Almida!"
