Hi, I’m Consuela Vlek, an Atlanta Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer. I’ve lived all over the United States and some from San Antonio, TX, San Jose, Costa Rica, Washington, D.C., Modesto and Sacramento California, Pawtucket R.I., and New York, N.Y.. As a kid we moved a lot ,but when the choice was mine I chose Atlanta and ended up loving it. I met my husband here and that just made me love Atlanta even more.
I am a Full Sail University graduate. I studied Digital Arts and Design so basically Photo, Video, Film Editing, Web Design, and Graphic Design. We have had so many great artist come out of our school. I hope to be considered one of them. I was a “Student to Watch in 2011“ by GD USA.
I also went to school for Fashion Design and Web each for a year. When I combined all the different disciplines I found my way. I’ve been taking pictures for years. For some reason I just never thought ” Make your hobby into a career since you love it! “.
Right after I went to school for fashion I was a stylist for a photographer friend that taught me more about graphics and photography. Then I actually started considering it as a career. I went on as a semi-pro and took pictures of everything ,but not much I can put into my portfolio.
After finishing at Full Sail I had a way better idea of business. Although I’m still learning. It’s been a long and fun journey and I didn’t even see it coming ,but such is life! In April 2011 I started Daughter Advertising and Daughter Shutters. Recently I decided to go with my name and so I switched the company to Consuela Vlek Photography. I hope you like the new name and all the pretty pictures. Enjoy!
