 Andrea de Anda is a professional photographer from Guadalajara, Mexico and has been living in California since 2012. She studied photography in the Universidad de Guadalajara and in the Universidad Polytecnica in Valencia, Spain. 


My love for my work is very simple, it is truly an honor to be part of many "best days of my life" moments, a couple's wedding day, maternity, their first born, family reunions, child's milestones etc. If you think about it really, I am a documentarian, a preserver of the happiest moments of your life; and let me say it again, it is TRULY AN HONOR to document those moments, to give you memories in physical form, for you to review and remember for the rest of your life and for generations to come.

My love for weddings started with my own, I had a fabulous wedding with all of our friends and family as our witnesses and I was hooked!!! from the planning, to the unfolding of the day, I know all the ins and outs of a wedding day like the back of my hand, and I'm here for you, to help you create the perfect photography timeline, to document your wedding day like it deserves.

I'm a Pisces, a dreamer and a storyteller and I strive to create the images that are going to live in your wedding album, hoping to be found someday by a great grandchild and be a part of that moment with you.

My love for photography is my passion, I take it with me everywhere I go, I snap pictures of my daily life and I print those pictures religiously once a month, I know it will be worth it when I'm old and look back at life. Yes, photography is my passion and my job; and I look forward to it everyday. Being a wedding photographer is a very emotional/technical thing, it is a challenge to create technically correct, well composed, perfectly lit, beautiful images all day long, every weekend. Wedding photography is not for everyone, but it's for me! I love that challenge, bring it on! 

2012 was the year I got married to my best friend and love of my life, that same week we moved out of our country to start an adventure together and a few months after that, I shot my first wedding and I'm never looking back. 2016 was the year we had our baby boy, right in the middle of wedding season, and yes! this is a picture of 38 weeks pregnant old me, still doing what I love ;) 

Thank you to my lovely assistant Gaby for these images.
