Not too far into our search for the best El Paso event photographers, we realized we had our work cut out for us. There’s so much talent in this sunny city, it was difficult to only feature a handful of the dozens of wildly creative and talented photographers who call El Paso home. After lots of discussion, we managed to narrow this list down to our top picks, including several up-and-comers and established vets. No matter what kind of event you’re planning, you’re going to want a skilled, creative professional to capture those memories; we’re certain that your perfect El Paso event photographer is somewhere on the list we’ve put together for you today. Without further ado — let’s get to it!
1. Chrisinda Treadwell of Treadwell Photography
The first photographer in El Paso to become certified by the Professional Photographers of America Association, Chrisinda Treadwell is devoted to continued learning and professional development. This drive for consistent growth and improvement is one reason she has been so sought after by her clients! Not only is her work ethic something to be admired and emulated, her passion for her occupation is what truly makes her stand out. She specializes in wedding and couples’ photography, as well as family events, such as gender reveals like the one featured here.
2. Juan Yepez of Eminence Photography
The team at Eminence Photography feels very strongly that photographs are one of the most meaningful and important tools we have in keeping close ties with the generations who came before us. They posit that a smartphone camera cannot replace the specialness of professional photography work, and we agree with them! Lead photographer Juan Yepez upholds and exemplifies this belief by pouring himself into capturing gorgeous wedding and quinceañara pictures that will be treasured for years to come. Hannia, the beaming birthday princess in this featured photo set, will always have these photos to remember her big day. The Eminence team is right — no iPhone camera can measure up to that!
3. Steven Currey
Steven Currey could tell you that events unfold naturally in the street every single day; there doesn’t have to be any kind of over-the-top planning, orchestrating, or assembling involved for a moment to mean something. Focusing primarily on street photography and candid work, Steven immerses himself in his surroundings, finding just the right angles and perspectives needed to tell a story or capture a fleeting moment. Life is really just one humongous event comprised of lots of teeny-tiny events, with a few special standout events sprinkled throughout for good measure. If you ask us, Steven is able to see the importance of those tiny events and immortalize them, and that’s a special talent, indeed.
Grecia Janeth travels the world, camera in hand. She shares her travels on her YouTube page, proving that she’s a master of both still photography and filmography. Whether she’s front row snapping gorgeous shots at El Paso Fashion Week, covering a local mariachi performance, or documenting Dia de los Muertos festivities in Mexico City, Grecia never fails to shoot striking images that delight the eye. She’s new to the El Paso event photographers’ scene, but we expect she’ll be making a name for herself soon!
5. Sara of Sara-Liz Photography
A wedding isn’t just any event; it’s one of the most memorable, storied milestones in a couple’s life, and Sara of Sara-Liz Photography gets that. With compassion and care, Sara strives to document the sweetest, most special of events in such a way that with one look at a photo from the day, one is transported immediately back to that moment in time, reliving it all over again. The perfect example of Sara’s masterful eye comprises a wedding day that is a bright, beautiful blur, as well as a day to remember forever. If this is the kind of event you’re planning, we think Sara may be your go-to photographer.
And then there are some events you can’t put into words. Those events that reach down into our souls and squeeze, events where the strength of love and the depth of meaning are indescribable and all-consuming. Leanne Hammons specializes in those kinds of events. The Knoxville, TN, native lives in El Paso and regularly documents military homecomings, with each image radiating with compassion and reverence. We don’t know what else to say about Leanne’s work to be truthful, as her photos speak for themselves.
7. Isaac Uribe
Isaac Uribe wears many hats. Independent clothing seller, visual artist, and photographer, he is the perfect picture of the millennial self-made success. He’s doing what he loves, and he’s excelling at it. Whether he’s shooting at an arena show, a graduation, or a Beto O’Rourke rally, he brings an exciting, energizing aesthetic to each image he creates. We’re definitely going to keep an eye on him; we can’t wait to see what kind of splash he’ll continue to make in the world of El Paso event photographers!
8. Yasmin Marquez Campos of Coffee Creative Photography
There are an infinite number of events associated with motherhood and all its stages, and Yasmin Marquez Campos wants to be there for every single one. The wedding, the newborn session, baby’s first birthday, the yearly family portrait — she does it all! Her photos are soft like a baby’s blanket and delicate like a baby’s toes; her editorial touch is perfectly refined and truly captures the all-compassing emotion of the life events she’s so honored to document.
