Hola, my name is Luigi

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


I love dad jokes, cast-iron cooking, smoky old-fashioneds, flan, rum balls, calligraphy, thrifting, and fast old cars. For sanity, I kayak. For speed and glory, I autocross. Oh, and I dabble in cosplaying Santa. I live in Urbana, MD, with my wife, and three adult kids (two left, but they keep coming back to eat my food, and the third one won’t leave), and two rescue cats.


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 absolutely love 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.
