HELLO!

I’m May (ma-i), a Mexican-American wedding and portrait photographer based in Raleigh, North Carolina.

I’m obsessed with color and light as well as art and originality, so there’s no doubt that our photographs will reflect that. I want your pictures to show off all of the amazing things about your life + love in the most creative way possible. Timeless, original, and beautiful is what I believe a good photograph should be. Do you like modernity? Editorial inspired shoots? Creativity? I’m your girl!

A little more about me

I started photographing with my phone, and eventually played around with a film camera during a semester abroad. That year is the year I realized that photography is a true passion of mine. So, I decided to get wild, upgrade my gear, and take it even further than just a hobby.

Some of my interests (among many others) are: people, exercise, travel, art, mezcal, attractive spaces, Mexico, adventure, food, learning, and good conversation.
