Murals of Mercy is a traveling wedding, elopement, + portrait photo house from Miami, Florida and when we started Murals of Mercy, we understood that we would have the responsibility to capture a person’s most treasured moments in an authentic way. If you are hiring a photographer, chances are that it’s because you are honoring something of great importance in your life- memories captured that feel like genuine art to you, and authentic moments that become murals of your life’s story. Posed pictures isn't our thing, really our goal is to capture raw, intimate, warm memories of you and your beloved that will stand the test of time.
I am a dog loving, music blasting, bookworm-turned-social butterfly with a serious love for the ocean, cuban cafecito, rom-coms, and Jesus. I’m also a photographer, born and raised in Miami, with a heart for people and their stories.
THERE IS SOMETHING SO INSPIRING ABOUT GETTING TO KNOW A PERSON’S STORY. HOW MANY STORIES CAN ONE PERSON TELL? STORIES OF THEIR MEMORIES, THEIR STRUGGLES, THEIR ACCOMPLISHMENTS, THEIR LOVED ONES, THEIR BUSINESSES, THEIR LOVE, THEIR LIFE.
YOU KNOW THAT OLD SAYING, A PICTURE IS WORTH 1,000 WORDS? IMAGINE HOW MANY STORIES one PERSON’S PHOTOS COULD TELL. THAT’S WHAT HAS MAde ME SO PASSIONATE ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY.
Murals of Mercy (or MoM for short) was named after my beautiful mom, and inspired by Jesus. My mami’s name was Mercedes, but she always preferred Mercy. She was my role model and my best friend- a real example of how to make lemonade when life hands you lemons. I strive to live every day by her example. The Bible tells us that God’s mercies are new every day, and that is the inspiration behind Murals of Mercy. My hope is that the photos we take will stand as a testament to the hand of God in our lives. Murals of the mercy we see, day in and day out, and snapshots of the blessings in your life. Essentially, it all started with a little bit of my momma and a whole lot of Jesus.
"Going into the shoot my fiancé and I didn’t know what to expect because we had never done a photoshoot before but Stephanie blew our expectations. She made us feel so comfortable and captured our love so beautifully. She is amazing and we will definitely be using her again for any photo needs we may have in the future!"

Stephanie is awesome !! I’ve never done any sort of photo shoot and I’m actually fairly shy but she made the experience enjoyable and I actually wasn’t nervous at all the whole time (which for me was really important). Apart from that her talent is amazing, she would literally do anything to make sure she got an awesome shot and I appreciate the hard work she put into my shoot. Miami is filled with photographers but it’s hard to find a good photographer because a lot of them just don’t have the people skills, camera skills, or editing skills. Stephanie has all three and I’m thrilled with how my pictures came out and I will cherish them forever. I will definitely be booking her for all my future events !

“Let me start by saying that if you need someone who is talented, creative, and an overall absolute pleasure to work with Murals of Mercy is what you’re looking for. As grad season quickly approached I felt that I was running out of time to book a photo session with a photographer. Stephanie was helpful from the very start she gave me the availability that she currently had and worked around my hectic schedule. The day of I was super nervous because I don’t usually take professional pictures but she made the whole experience enjoyable and eased my nerves right away. The photos were absolutely stunning and I could not be happier with the overall experience and end result. Stephanie is an absolute ray of sunshine and has the most positive energy! I’m looking forward to have her capture life’s moments as they come! “
