The month of September is here and with that comes the celebratory National Hispanic Heritage Month. Hispanic Heritage Month recognizes, honors, and celebrates the heritage and culture of Hispanic people, so we're excited to feature 10 Hispanic photographers on TikTok we think you need to follow.
1. Cinthia | @cinphotos
Based in Dallas, TX, Cinthia specialized in boudoir photos, helping people take a step out of their comfort zone and find confidence in their bodies through beautiful portraiture. On her TikTok, she share personal vlogs, hauls, and behind the scenes of being a photographer.
2. Yulissa Mendoza | @yu.lis.sa
In Yulissa’s words, “The foundation of their photography stems from their desire to facilitate safe spaces in order for people to be able to express themselves fully and explore themselves further.” They are based in Los Angeles, CA, and showcase style-based content and what it’s like being a photographer in their TikToks.
3. Alexsey Reyes | @alexsey
From asking strangers to take their photo to setting up their on-location shoots, Alexsey’s TikTok gives you an intimate perspective of getting the most authentic shot. “Creating through a hispanic narrative, Alexsey uses vibrant and youthful storytelling scenarios to touch on themes of self love, identity, race, and unity,” says their website bio.
4. Anneliese | @loveanneliesephoto
Annaliese is a Savannah-based wedding photographer, and her TikTok content shows what her job is like through a light-hearted lens (get it?). If you’re looking for some great wedding tips and inspiration, she will be a great follow.
5. Leslie Cervantez | @lesliecervantezphoto
Leslie has a studio in Houston, TX offering full-service, luxury portraits meaning you’ll be getting the royal treatment. “This ain't your mama's glamor shots,” according to Leslie’s bio. Her TikTok content shows us behind the scenes shenanigans at her studio and photo humor.
6. Dominic Angel | @domsiethebomsie
If you’re looking for a laugh, Dominic is your guy. His TikTok is compiled of his own comedy including bits from his podcast, as well as videos about photography. A quick jump to his Instagram will take you to this LA-based comedian/photographer’s photos of performers.
7. Sandra | @localmujer
Sandra’s TikTok content is actually based around giving awareness to arts and culture in the Hispanic community, including photographers you may not know about. She doesn’t showcase her own photography on her TikTok (you can check her Instagram for that!), but we felt including a TikTok creator who is passionate about the Hispanic arts and culture community is a great addition to this list.
8. Carla Alexandra Rodriguez | @tintypedaddy
With a unique, yet classic, approach to photography, this Minnesota-based photographer creates stunning portraits of their subjects using tintype. Carla create under the name Blkk Hand — a name inspired by their art: “Known as the "Black Arts" for the stains left on the ungloved hands of early photographers, Blkk Hand takes it name from the effects that silver nitrate has on skin (typically accidentally) when exposed to light.”
9. Giovanna | @giobabaa
Giovanna is a filmmaker and photographer living in Los Angeles. Their TikTok includes day in the life vlogs with behind the scenes of shoots they’re working on, expressing a joy and passion for their line of work.
10. Ellie | @elpideezy116
This Houston-based maternity photographer creates breathtaking photos of soon-to-be parents and their babies. Their TikTok shows us just how she gets these gorgeous luxury shots in her studio with before and after photos you can’t stop watching.
