Hi I'm Liz, the principal photographer for Third Strand Photography! My favorite part of working in this industry is being invited into the most sacred moments of our client's lives.

Aladdin Films team was a great to work with. We hired them for our engagement photos, photography, and video for our wedding. We had noticed their work from various friends. From our initial meeting with them, we knew they were professional and easy to work with. Their portfolio of work assured us that they would capture our special day in the right light. They were easy to reach by email and replied quickly whenever we had questions. On the day of the wedding, the team was fully prepared for the long day of more than 12 hours of work. The team kept it light and fun but at the same time working together to capture the day while continuously looking to outdo each other creatively. Their attention to detail was impeccable. We have only received teasers at this point and looking forward to seeing more but we know they will be great. Many of our friends viewed the photo teasers and all were blown away. As one of our friends stated, "literally the most professional catalogue worthy wedding pics I've seen". We would highly recommend Aladdin Films. They not only did a great job capturing our personalities but also became a part of our special day.

San Diego, CA
  • Editorial style
  • Starts at $2,000

I have traveled and photographed weddings and engagement shoots all over the country including internationally. I still get nervous before every wedding I photograph. If I didn’t have nervous tension, I probably would have lost the drive and passion for what I love doing the most. The reason for my love of wedding photography is simple: I love spending the day with brides and grooms creating wedding day memories that will last a lifetime. I hunt for moments that cannot be recreated or relived. I love capturing the raw emotion of a wedding day. I want to be the best not only for myself but especially for my clients.

Just book Peter! You won’t regret it. Super cool and personable from our visit video call with him. He was very flexible with our engagement shoot and generous with his time. Let me tell you…his vision!? Oh my. We have GORGEOUS photos from our engagement sesh as well as our wedding. I literally could not believe my eyes once I saw the photos! Anyone can take photos but Pete has the vision and artistic eye for epic photos! I cannot recommend him enough!

Alpine, CA
  • Classic style

I am a wedding and lifestyle photographer specializing in natural, warm, true-to-life photography. My business isn't just about photos, it's about people. It's not about transactions, it's about relationships. And it's not about one day, it's about a lifetime. At my core, I believe no moment is too mundane to capture, no day too average to celebrate. Hiring a photographer is an investment for you, sure, but it is also a gift to the generations that follow. Photographs are heirlooms, memories, and your visual legacy. I can't wait to connect with you and tell your story.

It’s me, Katherine! A little about me, I'm married to my husband Chris, and we have our little Jade, who is our rainbow, and our everything!! I have a love for anything old and sentimental – antique stores are my jam! I love to road-trip, most often to visit family but occasionally to a national park or somewhere new! I LOve coffee...years as a barista could be to blame but I so enjoy it with future clients discussing their upcoming Wedding or Life Event. Meeting up afterward, delivering print products and catching up on life just sweetens the KBP experience! Things are a little different with Covid, but we're just pivoting!

Awarded Best of Zola
Katherine was an absolute DREAM! She is very professional and was willing to go over all the details and her process ahead of time so I could make sure that I was making the right investment and I could not imagine having someone else by my side on my wedding day! I really felt that she had our best interest at heart and that she was invested in capturing us, our families and friends, and all of the little details that my husband and I put together. She was seriously so fabulous my guests and I do not have enough wonderful things to say about her <3 from helping to keep people on track to reminding me to take a deep breath and be in the moment to doing a monkey dance to get my 2 year old flower girl to smile for pictures... We cannot wait to hire her to continue capturing our family memories! I absolutely love her and I know you will too!

Carlsbad, CA
  • Photojournalistic style

I’ve been happily married for almost 27 years. I have three awesome sons. My parakeets Kiwi and Sparky are very social, meaning very loud! Champagne (maybe that’s why I love weddings) and sushi lover here! Photography has been my passion ever since my dad gave me my first film camera and introduced me to the dark room at age of 10. I lived in Japan for 12 years, and even performed on a stage there. I’m always up for a great road trip! I love tuna fishing. I love hats and want to wear them everyday (over 20 hats in my collection). I’ve been shooting beautiful weddings for almost 10 years. I secretly cry at every wedding.

Awarded Best of Zola
Irina from Carlsbad Photo was an exceptional wedding photographer. Despite having to change our plans due to travel restrictions, Irina captured every moment flawlessly. She arrived early, helped organize our dressing room, and was great with our daughters. The photos she took, including our first touch, still bring tears to our eyes. Irina expertly captured all the fun and dances, as well as our crazy families. Highly recommended!

Oceanside, CA
  • Photojournalistic style
  • Starts at $2,500

I’m here to capture nostalgic memories and help you remember the emotions behind the photos. I love capturing those truly candid moments. The kind of photos that put you right back in the moment five, ten, fifty years later. I'm a Southern California based photographer that will travel wherever you want to document your love! I'm constantly exploring with laid-back couples that want to capture genuine moments about their relationship. When I'm not taking pictures, you can usually find me hanging out with my loved ones, hiking, watching sitcoms, or taking a spontaneous trip.

Awarded Best of Zola
I'm not even sure where to begin! We met Emily in 2022, when my now husband and I got engaged in the Outer Banks. Leading up to our engagement shoot, we were both anxious expecting to feel uncomfortable and out of place in front of a professional camera lens for the first time. After meeting Emily, that awkwardness lasted about 2 minutes flat, and soon found ourselves not only feeling comfortable, but truly having a blast with it. Between changing locations, we grabbed coffee and bagels where we spent time chatting and getting to know Emily, discovering many similarities between our families, talking about our dogs and so much more. While shooting at our second location, a gorgeous botanical garden none of us had ever been to, it truly felt as if we were just there to explore and that Emily was our childhood friend who happened to just have a camera with her taking photos and not at all that we had just met her earlier that morning. By the end of our day together, before even seeing a single photo from our shoot, we were already discussing flying her out to NY to shoot our wedding and months later, the minute we decided on a date, we hired Emily again. Working with Emily to plan our photography portion of the wedding was truly the easiest part of the entire wedding planning process for us. She was extremely helpful and organized, asking questions, giving suggestions and creating a detailed timeline based on what was important to us, but what stood out the most was that she was genuinely passionate about making the day as enjoyable for us as possible. She showed us this by going above and beyond in ways such as offering help and resources completely unrelated to photography, doing her own research, creating polls on her social media platforms to help answer our questions, reaching out to her own personal contacts, sending helpful questionnaires, answering late night texts and emails and beyond. Our calls with her always put me at ease during such a hectic time and turned my anxiety into excitement. Leading up to our wedding, Emily continued to often reach out just to simply check on us and see if she could offer a helping hand (beyond the million ways she already had) which stood out immensely to us. The day of our wedding, having Emily with us was truly like having a lifelong friend there to get ready together. Something so special about her is the way she has mastered the balance between bringing a presence of excitement and a sense of calming to the day. She is able to get the photos necessary without an overbearing energy which many of our friends and family observed as well, mentioning how they wish their own wedding photographers were more like her. We received much praise from our families and friends but also our other vendors as well, for how well she worked with them and how kind and easy it was to spend the day with her. She was not just our photographer, she was a pillar of our day. When you hire Emily, you are really hiring a passionate, down to earth, genuine and professional person who happens to also be an incredibly talented photographer. Sharing two of the most special moments of our lives so far with Emily has been such a blessing. We are so excited to continue to hire Emily for all of our next chapters in life. She has become a dear friend of ours and love any reason to work with her we can get! You will not regret hiring her!

Hey there! Welcome! My name is Taylor- I am so glad you’re here! I am a documentary photographer based in the West Coast. I LIVE for capturing your love!

Taylor hopped on to shoot our wedding the night before after our photographer unexpectedly couldn’t make it - and boy are we lucky that she did! Her photos are beautiful, her attention to detail (I love me some detail shots!) was wonderful, and her kindness made the awkwardness of posing for pictures feel natural! She edited super quickly, was very responsive afterwards, and provided us with several sneak peaks the very next day. My husband and I are thrilled to see the finished product, we are so grateful to have worked with such a kind and flexible photographer who quite literally saved us at the last minute!

I'm in love with taking photos and I spend all of my time working on fine-tuning my photography but also getting deeper than just taking photos. I am taking photos with the purpose now more than ever. Its been my years of experience that has helped me develop my photography into art and not just a picture taker. From the moment I meet my clients, I want to know as much as I can. Getting closer to a client really transcends into the photographs I am taking of them and their special day.

Toby was fantastic! From beginning to end, he was very professional and accommodating. He artistically captured our special day and worked well coordinating photos with our large families. We love his edits, the angles, creative shots and all of the special candids! We requested a second photographer and a videographer as well; the entire crew was very professional and skilled & worked well together. He was very detailed in gathering information about the specific kinds of shots we wanted, and it was a relatively high bar given that my wife’s dad is a wedding photographer by trade. Toby did not disappoint, and had good chemistry with our family and guests, even connecting with Dad in the process. We're very thankful to have chosen Toby and his team to capture our special day!

You don't have to take my word for it...Read any review of True Photography (they are in abundance) and you'll see how universally loved this company is. These are the best and most creative wedding photographers you will meet and there is no close second. They listen to everything (wish lists, inspiration etc) but then bring their own style and artistry that is somehow way better than what you could have envisioned. Plus they know every venue in town inside and out and they are good people on top of everything else. If you are deciding between True and someone else, go with True Photography. And if you are just starting to look for photography and video, save yourself a lot of time and go with them!!

I’m a small town girl living in the big city of San Diego. You know the saying, “Home is where the heart is?” For me it has two meanings. If home is a physical place, mine is the magical little town where I was born – Ojai, California. It is a place where people can breathe deep and feel the wholeness of their lives. It's a magical little valley of peace happiness. If home is truly where the heart is, then mine is my family. In 2016, I married my best friend and the father of our beautiful son and daughter. We are a squad of awesomeness and those three hold my heart in the palm of their hands.

Morgan is amazing! She is professional, super sweet, and a pleasure to work with. She was willing to help with anything to make the day go perfect-from fixing my lip liner to bustling my dress she is all hands on deck and makes it happen! Not to mention her photos are unreal!

I was raised in the Sierra Nevada foothills of California. I was drawn to photography in middle school and would enter photos of our family pets or family backpacking trips in our local county fair. My passion for photography grew while working as a hiking guide in Yosemite National Park. I mean… who wouldn’t want a stunning photo of Half Dome? El Capitan? Yosemite Falls? I graduated from University of California Davis with a major in Graphic Design and a minor in Technology Management. In my free time I like to hike, travel, and watch Friends and The Office. You will most likely find me stuffing my face with either Indian or Thai food.

I was looking for a light and airy, timeless photography style and Bree totally emulates that! From the beginning, Bree was so accommodating and helpful. She sent over a welcome packet with tips to make your shoot look the best possible including outfit suggestions. She also provided resources about wedding planning and vendor selection! She truly goes above and beyond to make wedding planning and your wedding day flawless! We had our first shoot with her for our engagement session in winter 2019 in Kent, OH! I was excited to be in front of the camera but my fiance (now hubs) was not as excited (tip: ALWAYS do an engagement shoot for this reason.) After about the first 20 minutes into the shoot my fiance loosened up and began feeling more and more comfortable and I credit that all to Bree. She makes you feel so comfortable in front of the camera and her cueing is perfection. She turned around our engagement photos in a timely manner and they were BEAUTIFUL. Leading up to the wedding Bree was more than a photographer! She helped listen to some of my wedding stresses and give some advice, especially with COVID happening halfway through my wedding planning. She was flexible with all the changing situations and always reassured us that she would do everything in her power to make our wedding day perfect and she delivered! After filling out my pre-wedding shot list packet about a couple weeks before the wedding, Bree and her assistant arrived on time and ready to go! They were very organized and knew exactly how to take charge of the group. She flawlessly wrangled my hubs and his groomsmen for photos, directed ALL of my family quickly through family formal photos, and captured every important moment of our evening. Even my bridesmaids were saying how sweet she was for days after my wedding! Bree was amazing and sent over a few sneak peek photos in a couple days and they are GORGEOUS! It makes us so beyond excited to get all of our photos back. My husband and I 110% recommend Bree as your weddings/engagement/senior portrait/family photos or anything-you’d-ever-need photographer! I hope to have another reason to work with her in the future!

My favorite pastimes include exploring Disneyland, watching Schitts Creek & Ted Lasso, and cuddling my dog. I have a loud laugh. I love cabernet franc, chocolate chip cookies, and I'm on a constant search for the best tacos in the world.

Erin is an incredibly warm person and immediately made us feel comfortable during our engagement shoot. We had never done a shoot like this and were nervous and worried about feeling awkward, but her easygoing demeanor and natural instructions took all the stress off of us and we really enjoyed the experience. Erin has a detailed eye and a talent for capturing the natural beauty of the outdoors which was important to us. After our first great experience, we asked her to shoot our wedding as well on a cliff overlooking Sedona, AZ. She captured the scenery and golden hour lighting in breathtaking shots that were flattering of us and perfectly captured the grandeur of the red rocks around us. We will treasure the photos forever. Thank you Erin!

I was born and raised in the PNW, I’m 28 years old, I have a husband and 2 puppies who I love with my whole heart. I’m an extroverted introvert who loves all-night brewery hangs just as much as home game nights, and my love languages are words of affirmation and sushi.

Halley was our wedding and engagement photographer and the entire experience was amazing, more than we could have asked for. She really captured our personalities and relationship in our engagement photos and leading up to our session she location scouted for us and gave her professional opinion on best time to meet based on sunset and weather. On our wedding day she captured all the in between moments and candid personalities of all our guests, as well as documented all out precious moments. She helped with keeping on schedule during the day, helped me manage any stress I was feeling, and was there to adjust my dress and veil all day long. She was the best investment we made for our wedding day by far and the memories she captured are truly priceless.

I believe that love inspires art. Your wedding day will most likely be a blur of joy, nerves, and excitement with some extraordinary moments in between. Using both film and digital mediums, I balance a combination of both editorial and photojournalistic styles with a fine art approach. This collaboration will allow you both to fully enjoy each and every moment, as we tell the story of your wedding day. Wedding photography is an investment that lasts a lifetime, it’s the part of your wedding day that lives on. This is your love story, told in a classic, authentic, and timeless way.

Not enough positive things can be said about this lady - she is just phenomenal. She made the whole day so smooth & really listened to what my Fiancé and I were looking for in our photos. She gave us suggestions & just made us feel so comfortable. She is also like the ultimate hype girl - she made me feel so beautiful all day! She just goes above and beyond in every aspect of her job - she really prioritizes her couples. She made sure to ask in advance about what photos were important to us, what group shots we wanted, and what we wanted our timeline to look like. She arrived early, she left late, and ran on all cylinders the entire day. Oh and our engagement photos were beautiful & made us both so comfortable with her on our wedding day. I can’t say enough good things & I believe I found both a friend & photographer for life!

Have you ever met someone you just knew immediately was your person? We bet you have since you're here now! In 2015, Paul was the photographer at Crystal’s younger brother’s wedding, where she was a bridesmaid. We loved everything about that special day, but from the moment we locked eyes it was like time stood still. We knew then and there that we just hit the jackpot! Not only did we meet at a wedding, but we have both been in the events industry for well over a decade. Paul Douda Photography & Video offers full service wedding coverage for your big day in San Diego and beyond! We love to travel and destination weddings are a favorite!

We were looking for a photographer to capture our wedding day. We had specific requests one of them being we wanted the photos to be of the actual day as it was happening, not staged photos. Paul heard our request and went about the wedding mostly unnoticed, except where the group shots or special moments needed to be memorable. Crystal did the Video OMG. She captured everything we asked for and more. And the video trailer she made for us, wow!!! The first time I watched it I was thinking is this for real!!! Way over and above what we expected! I watch it all probably once a month. The first month 20 times a day and I still cry.. I love to send the video link to friends and Family. She made us look so good. Chad my husband and I went to a wedding show at the Grant hotel and literally search high and low for a photographer. Everyone had a package to sell, however no one listened to what we were trying to capture. When I said we search high and low I mean it. We found Crystal in the basement of the hotel, Chad fell in love with crystal first, being next to a brewery stand probably helped!! She listened to everything we were trying to accomplish for our special day. Even customized a special package based on our requests. Nothing was ever a problem or issue. The final results,Love these guys!!!!!!! Literally trust them for your day let them spoil you like they did for us. You will NOT be disappointed, not one bit!!!!!!!!!!

INQUIRE ON MY WEBSITE! I've been doing this for 8 years now, & it really does get better with time. There are countless memories of laughter, holding back tears (mostly happy ones), surprises, & moments that my heart didn't see coming. The opportunity to meet couples that become friends is something I will always feel blessed to have. I love building that connection as much as possible! You two together is your own little piece of art. At least that’s how I see it! So with that being said, I don’t want to try & copy someone else’s art. How you interact together should be captured purely.

We hired Emma for our engagement pictures and our wedding photos and working with her was AMAZING. From the personalized welcome gift, to the clear direction during shoots, working with her was a breeze. She always had time for any of our questions and was so willing to help with whatever we needed! Please hire her for your photos for a stress free experience.

I cherish the moments spent with my family. Watching my kids grow and experience life has been inspiring, scary, and exciting at the same time. Life moves pretty fast, so you don't want to miss it. One of the reasons I love photography so much is because a photo has the ability to instantly bring us back in time to a particular moment and relive the emotion and joy that it captured. I love spending time with old friends and making new friends. Getting to know couples and capturing the intimate moments of their special days is incredibly rewarding and I consider myself very fortunate to truly love what I do for a living

I was raised in Denver, Colorado. For most of my life, I took for granted the beautiful, jagged landscapes of the Rocky Mountains. It was not until I moved to Africa for a ministry internship after I graduated high school that I started to admire the beauty that constantly surrounded me. This also was when I got my first camera. I took photos to remember my experiences in Africa. This is when I fell in love with the art form. Photography opened my eyes to the beauty that surrounded me everywhere I went. I quickly learned that every person, place, and thing has a good side— you just have to find it.

Miranda and Trevor are the ultimate wedding dream team, and they make you feel like one of their friends! We booked them for an engagement shoot and our wedding, which I highly recommend doing to help get you and your fiance comfortable with them and in front of the camera. At the engagement shoot, my fiance and I were a little nervous as we'd never done professional photos before, but Miranda and Trevor made us feel so at ease, and the photos look absolutely phenomenal. Miranda was also a huge help with developing my timeline -- I had a number of requests and was stressed about how quick the day would go especially with an early sunset time, but she helped me manage the schedule beautifully so on the day, we actually ended up having a little bit of extra time and never felt rushed! The whole wedding day was totally relaxed, and she and Trevor captured the BEST shots.

I don’t even know where to begin to start singing Alyssa’s praises other than to say, hire her immediately if not sooner! My partner and I got married at Stone Brewing Liberty Station in May 2023, and Alyssa captured the day (and more) so beautifully and in a way that truly captured us. We looked through a lot of photographers recommended by our venue and others, and none of their work really stood out to us until we saw Alyssa’s photos. Her photography is truly stunning and exudes warmth and depth. We wanted someone who could capture us, not make things feel overly forced, and emphasize candid moments. Alyssa did that and more. From the moment we reached out to her to the end of the evening at our wedding, she was a true gem to work with. We even ended up doing an engagement session with her, as it was part of her package, and an opportunity to meet. She took time to get to know us, helped make sure we felt comfortable, thought through timelines with our other vendors, made wonderful suggestions that helped make the photos (and day) even more memorable, and truly was all around such a joy to work with. Lastly, multiple friends and family members came up to us throughout our wedding and said how they could truly feel so much love and warmth in the air. Alyssa’s photos captured that feeling for a lifetime.

I notice all the things. I'm the friend that goes running outside into the rain to find a rainbow because I can see that special glowy "rainbow-light" between storms. I'm the friend that will trip while walking because I'm too busy noticing the birds in the trees, or the classic art deco design of a building, or that adorable couple kissing on the bridge, to bother watching where I'm walking. I'm the friend that will take you to lunch at a cozy cafe so we can chat for hours and drink champagne vs buy you a gift for your birthday because spending time and attention with you is what we cherish most, and I know you love that too.

Jennifer is a generous, patient, and empathetic photographer. Her photographs were beautiful and natural. Highly recommend!

OMG I cannot express the gratitude and the perfection of the photos and our experience with Pol! He is one of a kind as a photographer and loved loved loved our photos. We took both our engagement photos, rehearsal photos, wedding photos and did our videography with him! When we first meet Pol, he took 2 hours of his time to go through the process with us, show us his photos, ask about who we were and how we met, and also gave us a custom quote. Our engagement session was so much fun and had a blast just being able to enjoy me and my now husband( then fiancé). We expressed to Pol during our engagement photos that we were looking for a videographer and was asking if he had any recommendations. He stated that he was doing a little videography at the time and would consider bringing it to us. He let us know that he would make it available to us and we could not be more grateful. On the day of our wedding, he was timely, help us with our nerves, and gave us direction when posing. I have a signature pose, but he help me switch it up and all the photos came out gorgeous. He is so worth every penny we spent, love his personality, and he is worth it. We also received all of our photos within a week of the event, which is amazing! Please do not hesitate when booking him! Thank you Pol for everything and we definitely will use you for family photos in the future!

Freshly landed from Paris, France. Christophe has been a travel photographer for the past ten years and decided to expand his creative horizons toward white dresses and bow ties here in California. His European touch will definitely bring something special to your wedding day.

Due to COVID, our wedding was postponed twice and ultimately cancelled. During each postponement, Willmus Weddings was still able to work with us. Ultimately the wedding was cancelled last minute due to the current restrictions and the fact that we were moving out of state in the next few months. The USS Midway was able to accommodate us to take the photos on the ship and even provided a beautiful intimate ceremony on the ship. Christophe and his videographer were there to capture this absolutely spectacular day. His professionalism along with his AMAZING talent could never go unnoticed. Thank you Christophe for helping create and capture the best memories and day of our lives! We are so grateful and thankful for you!!!

I love the love!! I am a hopeful romantic! I channel that when shooting weddings, elopements and engagement shoots. I look for the small gestures between you two while you interact, the way you look at one another in utter comfort and confidence, the way you laugh and crack each other up! I love observing how couples embrace and find each other's nooks. This is your person, the one that you can be your complete self with, how cool is that! It sounds corny, but being a wedding and elopement photographer really is a privilege.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Melissa for multiple weddings and events and can sincerely say she has been the best Photographer to work with in the industry. She’s reliable, professional, and above all creates amazing work! If you are looking for someone who is emotionally invested in your special day, look no further and hire Mellisa!

I fell in love with photography in high school and studied photojournalism in college. Before my wedding photography days, I honed my craft taking portraits – and chasing down breaking news stories for newspapers in my home state of Texas. I’m still a photojournalist at heart; telling your story is the soul of my work. I spend my free time outdoors as much as possible: hiking in the Laguna Mountains, camping in Joshua Tree, swimming at La Jolla Cove, sailing to Catalina Island.

I love working with Nick! He is super sweet, very talented, and he makes the wedding day not feel like a workday. I would highly recommend couples hire him to capture their weddings and events. You will not regret it!

I’m Erin Wiese, a Southern California/Texas based photographer who’s obsessed with storytelling for the wildly in love and the adventurous at heart. Photography has been my means of expression since the age of sixteen when I received my first camera. Most days you can find me taking pictures of humans in love, going on walks during golden hour, exploring new places, listening to true crime podcasts, and petting alllllll the dogs. I'm here to make you feel loved, seen, laugh + have a good freaking time. I can’t wait to meet you and hear your story!

Awarded Best of Zola
We absolutely loved working with Erin! We was responsive and on top of things from the beginning. She had such a great attitude and energy, which really eased a lot of our uncomfortable-ness of being in front of a camera. For our engagement photos, she spent a lot of time scouting out the best locations at our venue to ensure we got some really beautiful photos. Which of course we did! For the wedding, she made sure to get every single specific photo I told her was important to me. Even ones I had forgotten about in the moment. I was truly grateful for how patient she was the day of and how organized she was. We’ve only gotten our sneak peek photos but so far but they are incredible! She is so talented and has such a beautiful eye for photography! Book Erin!

I'm a caretaker by nature. (Enneagram fan? I'm a 2w3) I love to laugh and am often told I have a calming presence. My friends tell me I have a huge heart and am a good listener. Except my husband says I am a horrible listener but I think that's just to him! I love cats, craft beer, burlesque and radical self care!

Awarded Best of Zola
I'm going to break this down as simply as possible...... Melissa is a dream come true. She is everything you could ask for in a photographer and SO MUCH MORE. She's professional, kind,an excellent communicator, and has the best creative eye. But that's not all that makes Melissa great; she has the ability to make you feel comfortable. My husband is a shy, introverted kind of dude - the kind who'd rather do household chores than pose in front of a camera and smile - and Melissa has this nature about her that made him feel relaxed and at ease to catch our best moments. All of that is just touching a little bit on the SKILL Melissa has. Besides her exceptional talent, she is a joy to be around, Melissa brightens a room! You can't help but feel like your best self around her... it makes for some really wonderful digital lifetime memories. Can't say enough about what a treasure Melissa is. 10 out of 5 stars, easy.

On our wedding day they made us feel very comfortable and really wanted to showcase what our day was really about. They were really thoughtful and worked hard to give us a beautiful video right in time before the holiday rush which really meant a lot to us. Even after our wedding, they have truly turned into our friends and have recommended them time and time again. If you’re hesitating, do not!

Hello There! I'm Paige, San Diego Wedding Photographer, Adventure Enthusiast, and Your NEW BEST FRIEND! I am happily married to my Best Friend, Jeff, together we live in Sunny San Diego, California and we rescued the sweetest Pup you will ever see (We might be slightly biased!). We love to travel, camp, hike, and explore together. Does going to Disneyland count as traveling (When you have annual passes)?! In my spare time, I enjoy being cuddled up under a blanket, with a cup of tea, and a good book

Being amazing at your job is something everyone hopes for. Paige exceeds those expectations daily! Paige goes above and beyond what is expected for a photographer. She was and is so much more than the woman who took our photos on not only our wedding day but also our engagement pictures as well. Her work is absolutely flawless and she will do anything and everything to make sure your day is spotless! We have almost been married for a year now and I still am in shock as to how beautiful our photos are. Paige is the epitome of professional, she made sure we knew exactly what we were getting into from the very start, she talked us through everything and made sure we were absolutely comfortable with everything. I could sit here and write novels about how much I love her and the work she does but, Bottom line is hire Paige Hill for any photography need. You will NEVER regret your decision!
