After spending most of my life as a city girl in Guadalajara, and after a few years working to help women in rural communities of Chiapas, I married the love of my life and fulfilled my dream of living by the sea. We now have two beautiful sons and feel so lucky to call the beautiful Bay of Banderas our home. I feel fortunate to have found a career that fuses my passion for creativity and my love for humanity. I am constantly inspired by my clients and find great satisfaction in documenting all of the special moments of their wedding days. I thank my great friend and mentor, Elizabeth Lloyd, for guiding me into this beautiful profession and for sharing all of her experience with me through 9 years of working together. I have photographed all throughout Puerto Vallarta and its surrounding areas as well as destinations throughout Mexico. I am available for weddings worldwide.
"I just want to say that Sean, myself and all of our guests just loved Yanen! She was so incredible and we feel so lucky that she covered our special day and are sooo excited to see all our photos. She gave us exactly what we were hoping for. Taking us down to the market to capture the local experience that we abs lutely LOVED, all the key wedding shots while doing it in a natural way so we weren’t feeling so posed. We don’t question that the photos will be everything we hoped for."
"Every girl dreams that her wedding day will be magical. For me, I can truly say, that dream became reality. Getting married at Las Caletas was amazing, but what made our day so memorable was to have Yanen capture every special moment. From the minute she arrived at our casita where we were getting ready, she greeted us with her warm spirit and then seamlessly blended in like a chameleon. I really don’t know how she did it but she was able to get every minute of the day. Yanen went above and beyond to make sure we had a huge selection of amazing photographs to choose from! Her creative eyes shot some of the best photos of my husband and I and of our loved ones that we have ever seen. She made all of our photographs look like they belong in a magazine! Working with Yanen was such a delight. She made us feel comfortable and guided us when we weren’t too sure how to pose for that great shot. She is kind, she is hard working, and most of all she is an amazing photographer!"
