We shoot from the heart and strive to keep our photos simple, beautiful, and timeless. We believe in bright, soft, colorful images and emotional black and whites that are clean and free from distractions. We like to spend most of the wedding in the background and let you enjoy your day trusting and knowing that we capturing every moment of it as it unfolds.
Yvette, on top of everything mentioned before, loves, loves weddings! "I cry at most weddings, I work as a wedding coordinator at times. I've seen it all, so I know how to respond to unexpected situation. I will take this personally as if it were my own wedding!"
She said in a magazine article,
" I give my all to my clients. When I'm capturing your wedding, I'm in a thousand percent."
Named one of the "Top 25 Best Wedding Photographer in Texas" in 2021-2022
I started this business in 2010 not knowing where it would lead me. After 5 years of having a studio in South Texas, I decided to close it down and start traveling for weddings! Best thing I ever did! I've been blessed with this amazing job that feels more like a hobby than work. I am able to travel the world and capture amazing couples! But now in 2022 I've decided to settle back home in the RGV, and focus on weddings in south Texas as well as running The Down Bubbly Bar as our second business! You can see more about us on our social media! Instagram, Facebook, and Snapchat! Thank you for visiting my page, and hope to chat with you soon!

Our Second Shooters
After several years of turning away weddings because I was already booked, we decided it was time to add second shooters to VINTAGE! At first, the thought of this scared me to death. I have worked years and years to build my brand, how could I just turn over weddings to someone else to shoot with my name on it? But, I knew it was time. I have carefully hand-selected my team. They are trained by me, observing and shooting with me as second shooters, I promise, you are in good hands. It is also important to me to make these team members a part of my family. They have the same goals, processes and vision to shoot with the same passion and to build relationships and love on my clients just the way that I do. You are not "settling" when you hire my team, they are an extension of me, being able to give our highest quality of work to various couples at the same time!

Do you travel for weddings? Is there a fee?
Yes, all the time. And there is no travel charge!
Should we arrange your hotel and flight?
I will book my own flights, car transportation, and hotel! If you’re staying at a lodge or resort, I like to stay at the same place or somewhere nearby. In most cases, this includes 2-3 nights at a hotel, arriving at least one full day before your wedding, and I'll do my best to travel at the lowest reasonable price.
What is the advantage of hiring you instead of a resort photographer?
If you're getting married at a resort, they may show you a list of recommended photographers, but it's so important to choose someone who will take the time to plan with you, get to know you, and give you an AMAZING experience + photos unique to you! If that sounds good to you, I'm your girl!

Well over 300 weddings in the past 9 years in business.
