First of all, I'm SO excited that you are here! 
My name is Mar Alvarado and I'm a photographer based out of  Southern California, more specifically the Los Angeles and surrounding areas.  I started my photography journey 8 years ago when my husband gifted me a camera for Christmas, little did he know it would be the gift that would keep on giving, not only to me, but to all of my clients who have trusted me throughout the years! Thank you for visiting my little corner of the internet, make yourself at home, look around, and please reach out if you have any questions! I'd love to hear from you! 

Owner & lead photographer

Mar was absolutely amazing! She shot our wedding with such short notice because we planned it in two months. Mar’s professionalism and sweet personality made us feel comfortable throughout the whole process. Not to mention, it poured rain all day long on our wedding day, but that did not stop her from capturing such beautiful moments. Mar was flexible, thoughtful, and even came prepared with a clear umbrella for our day. I’m so glad we did a first look because I’ll never forget how intimate and special it was for my hubby and me amidst all the chaos. The pictures say it all and you can’t even tell it’s pouring rain because she captured our love so beautifully!!


After countless hours of searching for a wedding photographer, I was referred to Mar and she was the perfect fit for our special day. All of our interactions leading up to our engagement shoot and wedding day were very informative and welcoming. She quickly answered all my questions and eased any concerns. Her bubbly personality helped our engagement pictures feel relaxed yet so fun and they turned out absolutely beautiful. On our wedding day, Mar captured all the significant key moments without being totally in our faces and truly allowed us to focus on us and our day. That, to me, is something not many photographers can achieve but she mastered it! We quickly received the most bright, clean and exquisite photo gallery and were able to relive our day through every captured moment. Mar has a heart of gold & true talent, if you are seeking a photographer who will beautifully capture a special time in your life and gain a lifetime friend, you have found her!
