Capturing Your Intimate Wedding and Elopement Experience

I’m Yahozka Godfrey also known as Gabriela Cruz, a full-time photographer specializig in artistic empowerment photography (Boudoir) and Elopement and Intimate Weddings through emotional storytelling for the romantic and adventurous. I am wife, and a proud mother of 2 beautiful boys, Gabriel & Andres Cruz (GabrielA Cruz) with a passion for traveling and finding the feeling in photography and art.

My goal is to empower you and help plan your day that fits your values and vision and intention. If you’re a couple that values experiences over things, loves running barefoot, romance and adventure then we may just be the right fit.


You deserve to be your truest selves, to capture that love in a meaningful, unforgettable and authentic elopement and Intimate Wedding experience

Why Elope or have an Intimate Wedding?

Eloping isn't about running off from un-approving families and getting hitched in gloomy courthouse.

They are about YOU, YOUR PARTNER, YOUR LOVE. A way to truly remember the way you felt on our perfect day.

When you look at your photograph, you TASTE the mountain air, the FEELING of the sun as it sets above the Edmonton River Valley or the SMELL of the ripe grapes of a Tuscan vineyard. The possibilities are Endless!

But Gabriela, I love you and your work - I want you for my big traditional wedding!

My heart belongs to capturing the love between two beautiful souls whether that is an elopement, intimate wedding, a traditional wedding or a 5 day celebration.

If you are passionate about wanting to remember your beautiful moments as you start a new journey together, want as much time as you can in your wedding dress cuddling up to your partner as i snap photos of the spark between you then we are a perfect fit!

We had our engagement shoot with Yahozka and it was amazing! I love all of my pictures! She is so comfortable to shoot with and gives good directions for a great picture. She took the time to find awesome spots and scout them out ahead of time. Very professional! Can’t wait for the wedding photos
