Rosa Cuyun is the founder and owner of Roma Vista Photography offering professional photography and videography services to her clients. You can say that Rosa’s love of photography was instilled in her by her father, Santiago. As a child, Rosa’s father Santiago loved taking family photos and videos at family gatherings. Rosa’s childhood home was decorated with framed family photos all over the walls. This cultivated a love of capturing special moments in people’s lives and ultimately led Rosa to harness this passion into a career.
In 2013, Rosa made the decision to found her own company, Roma Vista Photography, focusing on weddings, lifestyle, and family portraiture for her clients. With the support and referrals from family and friends, Roma Vista Photography has grown and expanded to offer professional videography services in the Washington Metropolitan area. With old-fashioned hard work and a desire to exceed client expectations, Rosa has been hired to cover many beautiful weddings, national conference events, elegant galas, Capitol Hill events, and political marches in Washington, DC. All the while she continues to work full-time in a doctor’s office, and raise a family alongside her husband.
Rosa is native of El Salvador but was raised in Washington, DC since coming to the United States at the age of two. She continues to be proud of her heritage and culture. She is family focused and enjoys spending time with her two younger brothers and younger sister on her time off.
Some of her favorite things to do are, relaxing on a beach, wine tasting at the beautiful vineyards of Leesburg, VA and indulging herself in nature at Deep Creek Lake.
Rosa is a wonderful mother of three beautiful kids Brittney, Marvin, and Alyssa. She enjoys shopping with them now that they are all teenagers and assisting them with interior design advice for their rooms. As any mother can testify, raising a family and owning your own business can be quite a challenge. On a regular basis, Rosa manages her time around the activities of her children even if it requires staying up late editing files for her clients. Another challenge is the physical toll of the professional gear that is required for certain shoots, but over the years Rosa has employed very helpful and reliable assistants.
With pure grit and determination, Rosa manages to balance a healthy lifestyle and grow her business. Whenever possible, she enlists her children to assist her on shoots so that they can get a taste of the business and see if it is something they would like to pursue as an adult.
What Rosa enjoys the most about professional photography is being able to provide images to her clients that make them step back in time and relive the moment all over again. Most of the time, the bride and groom are not able to enjoy the little details of their wedding day, and Rosa is able to provide them with the experience of enjoying those subtle moments they missed.
Although she misses weekend events with her family from time to time, Rosa still loves what she does, and is excited to share her professional talents with her many clients.
