Peter Jonathan Images

5.0

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.

We highly recommend hiring Pete for your wedding day! A great experience from phone consult all the way to the delivery of photos and videos. Pete was super easy to talk to and very thorough in discussing the process and what to expect on the wedding day. He helped talk me through a good rough day-of timeline on the phone as well. On the day of him and his team were promptly on time, professional, and super fun to work with! The bridal party all had great things to say and his organization and professionalism ensured that the day flowed smoothly (and also made me feel super relaxed and easy going about things). Pete was flexible when timing was running behind (on our end) and made it work where we still got in the photos we needed to. He also was super great about fixing my dress for photos so that it would look great. His crew was super fun and it was an overall great experience. Captured so many little moments that were special and significant! I have nothing but positive things to say and would definitely hire him again in the future and highly recommend you do too! After the wedding he got photos back to us quickly and worked with me to make sure we liked the content and music of the highlight video. He was available to answer any questions I had and is just a great dude in general, everyone really liked him and several people came up to me to say that the photographer and team were awesome! Thank you Pete! So glad we worked together and we wish you all the success and good things in life!

Getting married is a series of beautiful, surreal, and fleeting moments. For me, I knew it'd be the only time in my life where we'd be surrounded by our closest family and friends from around the world, representing different chapters of our life... and only for one day. Choosing the right storyteller was a big deal for me, and I could not have been happier with our decision to work with Aladdin Films team. Through their photos, we're able to relive the belly laughs, occasional tears, side glances, miraculous weather patterns, and overall dreamlike state that made up our most special day.

Adam photographed my oldest Daughter’s wedding… the photos, and the service was so good… there was no doubt we would hire him again for my youngest daughters wedding as well. We were just glad he was available, because the experience of working with Adam on a Wedding day is a joy. I’ve worked in the photography industry myself for more than 20 years. I’ve seen a lot of great photographs, and I know a lot of great photographers. Adam’s work is some of the best photography I’ve ever seen… but it’s not just his extraordinary technical skills that set him apart from other top photographers, it’s his people skills. Adam is the kind of person that I would be happy to have at my daughters wedding, as a guest. He makes it easy to be photographed, his easy going manor puts people at ease, from the kids to the grandparents, and most importantly, the Bride. With just bit of simple easy direction he was able to to capture in photographs the beauty of my girls at their best. And, he handles his business as a professional, with appropriate communication, before, after, and during the wedding day. He was a pleasure to to business with. I whole-heartedly recomend Adam Levinstein Photography

Hi I'm Halley I’m a couples, wedding, and elopement photographer based in San Diego, Big Sur, and Seattle, but I’m ready to follow you anywhere! 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 Vernon has been one of favorite photographers to work with. From the beginning Halley was super informative and considerate to make sure I was well prepared for the wedding we were both going to be working. Super professional yet very intentional. When it came to the wedding day, Halley was on top of it. Making sure we stayed on schedule and capturing every detail they requested. Not only that but Halley really pushed my creativity to capture photos in different angles that I wouldn't have ever thought about. I highly recommend Halley for your big day!

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!

Katherine was an absolute joy to work with! A positive and upbeat attitude the entire night. She took the time to have conversations with fellow vendors and guests alike - which was so refreshing. Also, great turn around time on photos. Her work speaks for itself though - beautiful colors, great posed and candid shots and a dynamic talent for capturing stunning day AND indoor/evening photos (so hard to successfully do). I would highly recommend Katherine Beth Photography!

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.

We recently had the pleasure of working with Irina and Carlsbad Photo for our wedding photography, and we couldn't be happier with the experience. From the very beginning, Irina was professional, responsive, and easy to work with. She took the time to understand our vision for the day and helped us create a timeline that would ensure we captured all the important moments. On the day of the wedding, Irina arrived early and was ready to go. She worked quickly and efficiently to capture all the details, from the getting ready process to the ceremony and reception. She even managed to get some great shots of our first dance and all the dancing that followed, which we absolutely love. When we received our photos back, we were blown away. They are absolutely stunning and perfectly capture the joy and love of our special day. We especially love the candid shots that capture all the emotions of the day. We would highly recommend Irina and Carlsbad Photo to anyone looking for a talented and professional wedding photographer. She is truly amazing at what she does, and we are so grateful that she was a part of our special day.

I’m here to capture nostalgic memories and help you remember the emotions behind the photos. I love capturing those truly candid moments.

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.

I officiated a wedding in Asheville NC, and working beside her was easily accomplished. She watched as I swayed in and out of the photos for the couple so she could get the perfect shots we both knew that the couple wanted. We made eye contact and communicated through head knods knowing what was expected next. I've officiated so many weddings that it was great to have someone prepared for they knew what and when I was going to do it. Best of all, although it was a VERY cold morning, the couple threw a curve ball and asked her if they could take a trip up the Smokey Mountains for a few extra photos. Without hesitation, she said..sure! She shared photos with me and because I was officiating the wedding and sent the previews to me for MY portfolio! Great vendor to work with and a professional that I would hire for myself.

I always encourage connection, music, kisses and your best dance moves.

Kristen has long been our go to photographer I’m San Diego, CA. From maternity, to newborn, and even large group family photos we have always felt at ease and comfortable working with her. Not only does Kristen put everybody at ease, but she laughs, coaches, and encourages along the way. Flashback to 2012 when 23 year old Nina and 28 year old Brian decided to get married after knowing each other for 6 months, we did so quietly, secretly, and without the love and support we needed. We had always said we would do a ceremony and time seemed to be slipping by with constant military deployments, two adorable boys, and family heath concerns. In Jan 2022 we decided we had to do it on our 10 year anniversary in March. If you can’t tell spontaneity is kind of our thing. Before we secured the venue or picked our attire we called Kristen, we knew that not only would she be able to capture our day and energy perfectly but also help us with the details. Kristen helped guide our decisions in outfits, flowers, where we would stand for Vows, and made sure day of we got pictures with every person. The day was perfect, every person there was free to be themselves, including the kids, and Kristen was able to capture the beautiful unique energy of ever being.

When you put your heart and soul in what you do, everything comes naturally.

We used Yrsina for family photos, engagement photos, wedding photos and business photoshoots. Its because we have had such an amazing experience with Yrsina and YC photography that we continue to use her.

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!

Wellington worked with my husband and I for our engagement and wedding pictures. He was awesome to work with from him as a person to his attention to all the details and professionalism. When we first took our engagement photos, he made the experience fun and the pictures really expressed who my husband and I are together. Before our wedding day, Wellington came to our rehearsal for no pay. He did a walk through with us and helped plan out the pictures and locations. On our wedding day, he captured everything that we had talked about and so much more. Everything he did had a purpose and at the end of it our pictures came out great. All of the photos are amazing. I would highly recommend Wellington for any event. If you hire him, you won’t be disappointed. He is a nice guy too.

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 absolutely incredible! I knew she was the photographer I wanted to work with years before I even got engaged and I was so thrilled when she agreed to work with me. She is warm, talented, professional, and also makes you feel so comfortable. I am in love with our photos and wish we could do the day all over again so that I can be immersed in Morgan's positive energy.

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.

Salt and Sol Studios captures life's authentic moments, blending creativity with heartfelt storytelling. My passion lies in immortalizing memories, crafting images that resonate with emotion and timeless beauty.

We couldn't have had a better photographer than Adrianna. She absolutely nailed it with our wedding photos! We don't take ourselves too seriously and wanted our wedding pictures to reflect that, and she didn't disappoint. Our wedding teasers definitely felt like us rather than being super posed and dressed up versions of ourselves. All the photos felt like they captured exactly who we are as a couple. Not only did Adrianna take amazing photos, but she was like our personal wedding hero, making sure everything ran smooth. Our reception was a little chaotic since it was raining, and she took all our stress away with her thoughtful ideas. We thought she was reading our minds because everytime we were stressed or overwhelmed, she backed us up and helped us sneak out to take breaks. If we even mentioned something we weren't fans of, it was taken care of quickly and quietly. She seriously saved our butts more times than we could count. Throughout the whole day she was thoughtful, intuitive, non-judgmental, and so nice. We may have just met her on thr wedding day, but we were treated like she'd known us forever. We were worried it'd be weird to have someone following us around with a camera who we didn't know to well and it was the exact opposite with her! Long story short, if you want someone who's not just going take your photos but also make your wedding day feel like a breeze, Adrianna is your person.

Hey there! I'm Linda. San Diego wedding and portrait photographer. I've been photographing weddings for 5 years and have loved every minute of it. I'd love to chat with you and share how I can help you get the best possible images on your special day while giving you a great experience.

Awarded Best of Zola
I found Linda when I Googled "San Diego Courthouse Weddings". An article came up on why you should have a courthouse wedding, featuring some very simple yet amazing photos Linda captured of a Courthouse Wedding. I contacted her and she called me back the same day. She was inquisitive and asked me what I liked about that shoot and took the time to get to know me and what I was looking for. She strives for excellence and wants nothing more but to delight her clients. She became my mini Wedding planner by offering recommendations for services I needed. I asked her for these referrals and we went with the officiant and videographer she recommended. She provided several recommendations and I needed all the help I could get. She was like a sister and didn't make it about the money. Although, she is worth every dollar and more. She made sure to ask me to make a list of all the group photos I wanted, she didn't want to miss one photo opportunity that was important to me. She is so dedicated and visited our wedding site venue, prior to our wedding date, to assess for the best locations on the grounds and lighting during the time our wedding would take place so she could capture the best portraits. On the day of the wedding, she was of course early and checked in with me at the Bridal Suite to say hello and let me know she was there. After the shoot, she checked in with me, sent the previews before the time she promised and made sure I was completely satisfied. We are extremely happy with our photos and so thankful she was part of our special day.

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!

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 loved working with Emma & give her our full recommendation. I spent a long time trying to find someone who fit within our budget and had a warm, romantic editing style. Emma nailed it. She took our engagement and wedding photos in Palm Springs, CA and we couldn't be more in love. We just got our wedding day sneak peeks back (within a week of our day) and completely adore what she captured. We are so excited to see the rest so we can relive our day over and over again.

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

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!

We have a wonderful working relationship and I never worry whether my client's vision or my designs for them will be well represented, and they are flawlessly done. My business would not be as successful as it is if I didn't have her to document what I do and what I can offer to my clients. What I love in particular is her talent for documenting finer details, things that are often overlooked in the larger event scale.

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.

We have enough stress in our everyday lives, and I refuse to add any more of it into yours. That's why I do everything I can to make your photography experience as stress-free as possible. This means answering your emails quickly, freely sharing all of my knowledge & expertise with you, and walking alongside you throughout your entire planning process.

I've been recommending and working with Liz personally for my company's branding (I am a wedding planner) as well as with our mutual wedding couples. She is not only a talented photographer but her ability to put couples at ease in front of the lens, show true and candid emotion through her work, and her promptness in communication are some of the many highlights of working with Liz. I can easily jump into a laidback conversation as equally as we can discuss business - the kind of friend and professional you want on your wedding dream team! I have nothing but amazing things to say about Liz and her work - truly an up and coming gem!

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.

Jen has an uncanny knack for creating systems that ensure that things run smoothly, even under challenging circumstances. She also manages that intricate balance of bringing an enjoyable energy while also blending into the scenery, a great trait for a wedding photographer! And just take a minute to ask her about the different wedding shoots that she's done around the world... you'll be amazed and it will give you a sense of the breadth of her photographic abilities.

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 love the natural movements of documentary styled photos and the luxury feel of editorial, why choose a fav?! Even though I am based in San Diego, I grew up on the South East and love to travel, so take me wherever your love story is!

Maddy Greene was absolutely incredible. She was personable, professional, and made Matt and I feel so comfortable. She is extremely easy going, but assertive in all the right ways. She knows how to give perfect direction to make sure she gets the best shot. We were blow away by the photos and could not have been happier to have her photograph such a special day. I have no reservations to recommend Maddy Greene to anyone looking for a photographer!

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.

My name is Cristina and I am excited you're here! <3 I am a wedding + portrait photographer and videographer based in San Diego, California. I have been a photographer for 10+ years and a videographer for 5+ years. I started with shooting landscapes to portraits and have expanded to wedding photography + videography 3 years ago and it was the most. fulfilling. decision ever!!

Cristina was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! From start to finish she was hands on, very communicative and just a doll to work with. I was going back and forth on whether or not I could afford video for my wedding day. I went back and forth and finally did all the research and found Cristina since she was in my budget. It was weeks leading up to my wedding and I kept changing the length of time I would need Cristina and she was so very professional and sweet and very patient with me. Fast forward to the wedding day and Cristina was just as sweet in person and I was super excited that I decided yes on video. The night after my wedding I had my sneak peak already in my inbox…talk about FAST. Then two months went by and we had THE BEST video full of the best moments from our wedding day. People who didn’t attend the wedding that watched the video felt as if they were there. I can’t thank Cristina enough for capturing the best day of my life.

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! Ethereal really worked with our budget so make sure to inquire first!! They will work with you! Again, thank you Ethereal for the best service ever!!!

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!

My name is Adrian Burlaza, I was first introduced into photography in 2008 when I took an intro black & white photo course. I instantly fell in love with taking images with my camera and seeing them come to life by my own hands (literally, in the dark room). From that point I committed myself to this craft of image-making and scoured the internet, learning everything from nerdy equipment specs to creative techniques.

I can’t speak highly enough of our experience with Adrian! His photos are stunning and he is so incredibly nice. My husband and I both feel a little awkward in front of the camera and Adrian gave great instructions and put us at ease. He also captured so many small sweet moments, and really got the feel of our ceremony across. He got our photos back to us super fast too, overall a really amazing experience!

Hello Darling! I'm so glad you're here! I'm Tara - the eye behind the lens in all the photos you see here. It's a privilege and an honor to get to do what I do. It is so much more than a job to me. Every photograph I take is a little pieces of my heart that I leave with every one of my couples. I'm committed to documenting the heirloom moments of your family legacy. I am a historian curating timeless moments for you to live over and over again. I see beauty in everyone and it is my joy and privilege to show my clients how beautiful they are. <3

If I have the option to work with Tara, that is who I will hire to second for me, without a doubt. I have literally flown her to locations where I didn't "have" to because she really is so lovely to work with. I know I don't need to manage Tara at all, she know how to get the photographs that the clients are dreaming of without being intrusive or overhearing. She is professional, and kind, and so fun to be around. I wish 2020 weddings were happening just so we could shoot together, dang it Corona.
