READY TO CAPTURE YOUR Destination weddinG OR elopement.


I am Cecilia Fender, but you can call me Silly.


Yes, I know it's a bit odd for a nickname, but that's what I've been called for as long as I can remember. And I'm cool with it because it totally fits my personality! Always cracking jokes and pretty dang clumsy.

I'm a traveling wedding & elopement photographer, who specializes in luxury celebrations in the South West.


Ready to capture you're destination Wedding or Elopement!

Based in my beautiful home state of New Mexico, I've had the honor of capturing so many love stories. If New Mexico isn't your ideal location no worries. I love to travel! You are more than a client when you book me! I go from photog to bestie real quick! I tend to share laughs, beer, and food with my clients on most sessions. And if you choose to have a traditional wedding, you can find me on the dance floor!

I'm freaking stoked you're here!

Grab some coffee and take a look around!

 

 

 

 


FORGET EVERYTHING YOU KNOW ABOUT HAVING YOUR PHOTOS TAKEN.


Here’s the thing - I’m not that cookie cutter, “stand right there, and look at the camera” type photographer. I’m that - fade into the background, capture the big moments and little ones you didn’t even remember happening type of photographer. I like to consider my style “controlled chaos.” This means I prefer belly laughs, candid moments, dirty dresses, spilled TEQUILA, lipstick on your cheek, kind of images.

She's Amazing!

Cecilia was amazing for my wedding. She was very professional and met up with me to help me come up with a timeline of events. She helped take A TON of stress off a very stressed bride. She gave me a sample of my pictures the very next day and the rest of my pictures soon after. Her style is beautiful and that is one of my many reasons I love Fender Photography. She will go above and beyond to get the perfect picture. She is such a joy to work with and the way she made me and my whole wedding party feel, that is a reason we will go back to her for many other special events that need photography.

I wasn't from the area when I started looking for a wedding photographer, nor did I know anyone that knew someone. I went to instagram and searched "NM wedding photographer" and skimmed until something caught my attention. That's how I found Cecilia, and the rest was history! We instantly hit it off, she was so fun, sweet, and knowledgeable. I instantly knew I made the right choice. She was amazing from our engagement photos, to helping coordinate our wedding day schedule, to the day of! Any questions I had, she had answers.

The day after our wedding, SO many people complimented on how involved and professional she was. I couldn't be more grateful for her and her undeniable talent!
