Manuela is an outstanding photographer! It is instantly obvious that she cares deeply about capturing the emotion and story behind her clients. She is intuitive, creative and focused during the photoshoot and keeps everyone organized and at-ease. She produces absolutely gorgeous images. She is a wonderful person to work with. I would recommend her highly to anyone! Love!
I had the pleasure of first meeting Manuela in 2013 when my brother-in-law hired her to photograph his wedding in Jamaica. I recall being surprised that he was willing to hire a Toronto-based photographer to shoot his Jamaican wedding when we lived in Edmonton, Alberta! Out of curiosity, I immediately looked her up and when I saw her body of work, I knew right away why he chose her. My brother-in-law's wedding photos were absolutely stunning. He and his wife also did a 'trash the dress' photo shoot the day after their wedding. The shoot involved horses and the ocean, and I can say that the photos are some of my most favourite images. There was such a magical and majestic quality to the photos. They took my breath away. And then last summer, when I found out Manuela was going to be in Edmonton for a project, I jumped at the opportunity to have her take our family and maternity photos. Manuela was such a delight to work with. Our three year-old daughter instantly fell in love with her! She is very professional, passionate and thoughtful. Her warm, gentle, and easy-going nature puts you at ease, which is so important when being photographed! We were so pleased with how our photos turned out. Manuela has a true gift for capturing those special moments that you'll want to cherish forever. I can't give her enough praise. I look forward to having Manuela continue to photograph our budding family!

Me and my husband had the pleasure of working with Manuela for our engagement shoot and our destination wedding in Costa Rica. We knew from the first time meeting with Manuela how important and how passionately she takes her work. She is so easy to work with and her love of photography just shines through her work. We could not be happier with our photos and our friends and family were amazed with her work! I hope we get the chance to work with her again in the future!.
Not only is Manuela a phenomenal photographer, she's an incredible person. We chose Manuela to capture our wedding in 2017, and we couldn't be happier with the results. She took the time to get to know us both as individuals and as a couple, and the result was authentic and beautiful photos that reflected our personalities and told our story. Manuela is energetic and confident and works tirelessly to capture the perfect shot. She's discreet and captures the raw moments and emotions of the day. I can't recommend her enough. Thank you Manuela!
I knew immediately that I chose the best photographer when I met with Manuela. She is very intuitive, and has an amazing eye for capturing special moments in any location. Manuela doesnt need a back drop or fancy settings, she took my daughter outside and put her against the red brick of our house, placed us in front of a white garage door, used a simple wooden fence, her eye for possibilities is incredible. We felt very comfortable with her, and she communicated perfectly. Will certainly use her again, its so important to get great images before its too late!! XOXO to Manuela! Thank you
