1. Yvette Hammonds of Photography by Yvette
Yvette Hammonds is a versatile photographer with a knack for telling compelling, evocative stories through natural, unposed photography. She doesn’t believe in faked joy or contrived lifestyle photos, trying to squeeze all of your interests into a single frame.

2. Jaz & Theo
Husband-and-wife El Paso engagement photographers Jaz and Theo are two deeply romantic individuals who use their photography to tell the love stories of El Paso couples and inspire others.

They’re an El Paso institution, sought after for their kind hearts and adventurous spirits.
Stephane Lemaire is a Paris-born El Paso wedding and engagement photographer, known for his unique style which he describes as “sensual, sincere, and scenic.” His photos focus on desire and the root of desire that grows between two people. And he shows this desire through only natural interactions, never posed moments, because he knows that no two couples are exactly the same. And then he employs gorgeous landscapes to emphasize the deep romance, imbuing a sense of how true love seems to bind two people both through time and somehow outside of time. Altogether, his photos give a sense of the eternal and unique nature of love.
Jennifer Campos is a wedding and engagement photographer who splits time between Lindenhurst, NY, and El Paso, TX. She takes photojournalistic shots that document couples being themselves together. She’s a patient photographer with a deep understanding for how humans form memories that stick, as well as an ability to take photos uniquely suited to breathe everlasting life into the moments she captures. We appreciate her style, which is thoughtful and careful while being simultaneously adventurous and willing to push boundaries. We appreciate photographers such as Jennifer who have distinct aesthetics, and yet do not place arbitrary limitations on their work.
El Paso engagement photographer Cristina Navarro is an extremely romantic photographer who takes her life’s work of capturing soulful moments of connection very seriously. She’s the type of photographer who seems as if she’s always looking at life in terms of photography. How would this moment look on film? And what about this scene? The close attention to her surroundings and the people that she works with helps her take photographs that cut through the mess, as well as the sound and fury to get straight to the heart of things, even in the midst of the most raucous party or chaotic moment. We believe you’ll love her work.
Clients rave about Marina’s commitment to producing gorgeous, epic photos, the types of photos that turn couples and families everyday lives into works of art. This is done simply by celebrating their love and commitment to each other in both the big and small moments. She’s a consummate professional with a painter’s ability to render couples against beautiful natural backgrounds in such a way that both the couples’ love and the beauty of nature take on an eternal quality.

8. Charissa and Andrew of Life in Tandem Photography
Charissa and Andrew of Life in Tandem Photography are El Paso engagement photographers who see their jobs as being about celebrating life and love.
