Before you share your story, let me tell you mine

Hi, I'm Mercedes Anntoinette! I'm a photographer who is passionate about capturing life's beauty through my lens. I specialize in various genres of photography, from weddings to boudoir and all stages of families. I focus on capturing genuine and authentic moments that showcase your essence. I love looking for the best light and the perfect backdrop for your photographs while being adept at making you feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera.

I strive to be a warm, friendly individual who values relationships and enjoys making others comfortable and happy. As a photographer, my ability to make you feel comfortable and at ease helps me capture your true essence and personality.

And these are a few of my favorite things


I listen to music 24/7, and I love going to concerts. You can find me listening to anything from The Cars to Chris Stapleton to Lil Wayne and everything in between. I'm always blasting my favorite music at home, especially a little too loud in my car. If you ever drive with me, don't say I didn't warn ya!


Animals are an important part of my life. My cat Elmore is the love of my life, and I also volunteer at my local animal shelter. I have a deep appreciation for the beauty and complexity of the natural world and a desire to protect and care for animals who are in need.


Believe it or not, I was in a bowling league for ten years while growing up. I've rediscovered my love for bowling again; now, it's my favorite hobby! My favorite solo date? Bowling, AirPods, and a cold Miller Lite.


I'd rather go to a diner than a fancy restaurant any day! The coziness and nostalgia feel like a home away from home to me. And breakfast all day? Say no more.

Summer Nights

I appreciate the warm nights of summer while spending time outside with friends and taking advantage of the longer days. Summer nights allow me to recharge and connect with the world around me.


Having a Halloween birthday is the BEST! It makes me feel a special connection to the holiday and the time of year. I love decorating my home and indulging in spooky treats and activities.
