Destination Weddings
We are very well-versed in destination weddings, having photographed them for over a decade. We've photographed on the Russian River, in Humboldt’s Redwood forests, on the beaches of San Francisco, Santa Cruz, Malibu, San Diego, across Wine Country, and in Yosemite National Park. We are very comfortable traveling to shoot events. Whether you’re getting married at the Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite, the Fairmount in San Francisco, or even a villa in Italy, we will travel to you. We have photographed several weddings for professional wedding photographers, and have been recognized by our industry peers as specialists in this genre of wedding photography.

Photographer Reviews
Many clients come to our site after reading our reviews on Yelp, The Knot, or Wedding Wire or reading about us on sites like The Knot and DIY Weddings Magazine. We are thrilled to have made so many clients happy in California, and we hope to continue doing just that for years to come!

"Duende surges up, inside, from the soles of the feet. It's not a question of skill, but of a style that's truly alive: meaning, it's in the veins... immediate creation." - Federico Garcia Lorca
