Marina Maldonado, Your Local Photographer in Cartagena, Colombia

About me



I've loved taking pictures ever since my dad gave me my first camera at age 12. I'm inspired by the love I have for my home city, Cartagena de Indias. I have photographed many different subjects, faces, scenes, and moments everywhere around me for years. By doing your photoshoot in my city, I'm able to show the world the wonders of this place with happy ambassadors like you :) 



I am surrounded both by natural beauty, colonial streets, breathtaking flowered balconies and interesting people. I do a photo session from my unique point of view to document your visit to my city with a focus on the magic I find in daily life. My pictures tell both our stories. 



Through my experienced eye, I bring my stories of your most treasured life events into your home. Add a photo book to it for sharing moments of joy with your family and friends.

What I love doing

Local photoshoot


On a trip with your lover, friends, family or just yourself? We got the perfect scenario and I'm ready with my camera to take beautiful pictures of you with your loved ones, around the streets of Cartagena de Indias.

In-city photo walk


Grab your phone or camera and come walk with me around Getsemani and the Old City! I'll show you the best places to take your own memories of your visit to Cartagena, while I, as a professional photographer, provide you with tips and basic phography notions to help you improve your skills (2 to 3 hours)

La Boquilla + Old City photo walk


Same as the "In-City" photo walk, plus a stop at the San Felipe Fortress and a trip to the fishermen's village of La Boquilla, just 15 mins away from the city, where we will board a canoe for a trip around the swamp and inside the mangrove woods (5 hours). 

A photo walk that fits your needs


Looking for something else? Let's talk and I'll customize a photo walk just for you!

All of our photography walks include backstage pictures of your experience.

Btw, we are fluent in Spanish and English, and we try our best in French.

Life events


Anything from christening to birthday parties to weddings. Keep calm and enjoy your day, we'll preserve your memories. Psst! taking a photobook would be nice :)
