Hola, my name is Luigi

Your new favorite boudoir and pin-up photographer. I am Peruvian by birth, but a proud American by choice. 


I am bold, direct, and passionate about my work. I love dad jokes, cast-iron cooking, smoky old-fashioneds, flan, rum balls, calligraphy, thrifting, and fast old cars. For speed and glory, I race my red little car. Oh, and I dabble in cosplaying Santa. I live in Urbana, MD, and I am a proud dad of three awesome adult kids. Life is good.


I have a master’s in communications from the American University in DC, and in a previous life, I had a rewarding event planning and senior protocol career in the US government. While planning big events, I picked up a camera to document some of my event details like handwritten place cards, table settings, and flower arrangements.


It had been a while since I took photography in college, so I dusted off the old camera and started taking photo safari workshops. I came cross a local pin-up and boudoir class, and I was hooked into the genre. A few people suggested I couldn’t do it, so I told them to hold my rum and coke and here we are. I changed paths from flags and forks to lights and lingerie.


I am proud of what I have built over 13 years. I am absolutely passionate about what I do, and I hope it shows.


Your time to reclaim your body, your sense of self-worth, and your femininity is now. I hope you will trust my team and me to create an authentic, fun, and unique session just for you.
