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. Year after year I am blessed to work with the best couples! Based out of San Diego, there isn't a day that goes by that I don't look for new ways to document the beauty around me. After college, I married the love of my life, David. We began to see the lasting value that photography provides, and in 2012 we started our own studio... we've never looked back! We couldn't be more thankful for the places & for the joy that photography has brought us!

Peter Jonathan Images

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.

I have worked with Peter Jonathan Images quite a few times and love his style, experience, creativity, punctuality, and quality. It is always a great experience working with him and his team!

Wildly Free Photography

Escondido, CA
  • Photojournalistic style
  • Starts at $2,900

I believe that every love story is the best story, and I am passionate about telling those stories through photography. My goal during every session is to create such a fun experience that my clients relax into each other and open up in their natural state. I see people as radiant, inside and out, especially when in their relaxed and happy states. My goal is always to deliver not just a service, but an experience that lets my couples see and feel how extraordinary they truly are.

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.

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.

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.

I've never been so excited to review somebody in my entire life!!! We were so lucky to have Irina as our photographer. I cannot say enough how important it is that your photographer on your wedding day is just as wonderful as a person as she is a professional at what she does. A good photographer makes you feel comfortable and effortless behind the camera. Posing parents, siblings, wedding parties, flower girls, ring bearers, and the bride and groom coming together perfectly in a crazy short amount of time? You feel like it’s IMPOSSIBLE. It’s not! I’ve heard that weddings are always not on time. The truth is it’s more worth. The rings may be forgotten, the very important guest is being extremely late, and a lot of other reasons. Irina was super patient, she captured each and every photo I wanted without me even having to make sure that she did it. Her creativity, eye for perfection, and professionalism are unbelievable. The wedding day does by so fast, and it's important to have all the moments captured. My now husband and I could not have chosen a better photographer. Everyone at the wedding was talking about how great our photographer was. Irina introduced herself to every guest and family member at the wedding and made sure she got every guests’ picture which we are so grateful! We had so many out of state guests and wanted to remember every moment with them on our best day. If you are looking for pricing that makes sense, photographer who cares about the quality, your happiness on your wedding day, and feeling confident throughout that entire day and every time you look at pictures afterwards, then look no further!

Traveling has taught me the importance of capturing all the important - big and small - moments to look back on years later. 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 in my hiking boots 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 people, 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 am really passionate about my job. I love meeting and connecting with people. Making them laugh and having fun during the photo session is one of my main purposes. I love when clients they tell me they don't like to have their pictures taken, that is a challenge; and I promise I will change their minds. When you put your heart and soul in what you do, everything comes naturally.

Yrsina did our wedding pictures and I just loved her personality and professionalism so when we got pregnant we just had to call her to do our pregnancy photos and of course once our baby was born I had to call her again… I have to say when it comes to babies… she has so much patience and she just loves what she does… the end result shows it!!! Wouldn’t have any anyone else taking our pics… we definitely made the right choice! We highly recommend her!!!

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.

Hi there! I'm Khoa, a San Diego based wedding photographer who enjoys spending time with good people and road trips. I love all things weddings because witnessing couples' happiness brings me joy and fuels my creativity. I want to create photographs that can stand the test of time so couples can relive their day years from now and for generations to come.

I had chance to work with Khoa when helped my best friend coordinate a destination wedding in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. I found him through a mutual friend. He was so easy to work with and I'm impressed by how knowledgeable he is about photography especially, destination weddings. We organized things smoothly through phone calls and email. Seeing his portfolio made me and my hubby decide to take a small photo shoot session with Khoa when we were in Cabo for the vacation/best friend's wedding. The result was amazing!!! During the photoshoot, he made us feel so easy and fun to be models for the day. We were camera shy and feel awkward when posing intimate moments in front of stranger and camera, but with Khoa, he helped us break the ice and be ourselves. I was impressed with so many candid moments were captured by his camera through out the wedding by himself. Through the album, we can live those great moments again. Another plus things about Khoa, he cares about his clients with follow up email, or small thank you cards which make us love him more. I will recommend Khoa for my friends and families. Side note: I had shopped around a lot to compare pricing, but I'm glad that I made a great decision when going with Khoa. His price is average or a bit on a higher side compare to the market, but it worked every single penny we spent by the quality works and his great customer service. Keep up with your great works, Khoa! Thank you for making our memories so beautiful and lively!!!

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.

My husband and I worked with Adrianna as our lead photographer for our wedding day at Canopy Grove in Escondido, California. She is absolutely AMAZING! Adrianna and the team were incredibly kind, professional, and easy to work with. My husband and I are not the most comfortable in front of the camera and Adrianna made us feel confident throughout the whole process. She is incredibly detail-oriented and made the entire day go smoothly with her leadership skills and flexibility. Truly ALL of our photos are absolutely gorgeous, and we are so blessed to have such beautiful memories to take with us that will last a lifetime. Would highly recommend Adrianna for all brides and grooms looking for a creative, fun, and talented photographer! :)

Linda was amazing to work with and we are so grateful for her efforts! She spent time before the shoot scouting different places and she really knows her stuff when it comes to perfect lighting and angles. My fiance and I had never done a professional shoot before and Linda made us feel so comfortable and helped with posing and confidence. We were blown away by the final product, each picture was not only stunning but also captured the love we share.

We are Hayes and Bree, your San Diego wedding photo and video duo! In 2020, we met online, but were stunned that both of us had been capturing weddings through photography and videography separately for years! After getting married, we combined our businesses to create one where we not only get to continue doing what we love, but get to do it together. Whether it's a local wedding in San Diego or traveling to gorgeous spots like the European countryside, we would love for you to come along for the journey!

Bree is absolutely the sweetest woman ever and an incredibly talented photographer! It’s hard for me to know where to start! 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!

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!

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.

Vanessa has an amazing eye and her work is gorgeous. She's creative, easy to work with, and has an attention to detail that's hard to beat. I couldn't be happier that I had the opportunity to work with her. I highly recommend Vanessa Rose Photography.

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 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.

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

Are used to Uber studios for my wedding a few weeks ago, and Jason, the lead photographer and his partner Nicko were so kind, helpful, and professional. They were so good working with all of my family members ranging from ages 2 to 92, and they are also really fun to work with as well. They are very good with responding to my emails quickly, and I’m really glad I chose them for my big day.

He never made me feel like I was too detail-oriented or particular, and I can definitely be overly-detailed at times! haha. He is truly committed to pleasing his clients. Not only that, but the post wedding experience of designing the layout of my wedding book has been fun instead of what could have been confusing and overwhelming. He has extreme patience and helped me create the layout for my very extensive wedding album, as well assisted in communication with an awesome leather craftsman company to design the custom cover. I feel like the wedding book is sometimes a thing that couples don’t get to, and then it never gets done, so the ease of that process made me so happy I went with John.

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.

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.

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.

Awarded Best of Zola
Nick has been just fantastic to work with. We had met with him back in the summer of 2019 to discuss and had planned for our wedding for May 2020. Of course we had to pivot and change plans due to COVID, which unfortunately included pushing the date to August (who knew COVID would linger on for so long...). He has been nothing but flexible and understanding throughout the whole process. Working with him on the day of the wedding was seamless - he is a true professional who clearly knows what he is doing. Neither I nor my husband (!!) are too comfortable in front of the camera, but the direction and guidance Nick provided for us made the whole photo-taking experience so much easier and fun! We were also expecting our photos months after our wedding, but they arrived extremely fast! The quality of the photos is just as praise-worthy as Nick's professionalism. The photos are absolutely fantastic and are just perfect. We could not have picked a better photographer to capture this special day for us. 11/10 Recommend!!! If you are reading this and you pick another photographer - YOU ARE MISSING OUT!!

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
We couldn't have been happier with Melissa, from engagement photos to wedding, and since then every annual family photo shoot, she is the best and we gets compliments on our photos year after year! Her fun and creative personality put you at ease and she even is patient with my crazy kids and dogs! I have had friends who use someone cheaper, but they only get a couple of photos or a very restrictive shooting time etc. We love that we don't have to worry about those things, and for the product and service we get the investment is more than fair! Hire Melissa, you'll be glad you did!

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!

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 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!

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.

TOMORROW ISN’T PROMISED TO ANYONE, SO IT’S UP TO YOU TO DOCUMENT YOUR TODAY. YOUR RIGHT NOW. YOUR LIFE. Everybody has a story and I’m fascinated to learn yours. I come from a close knit family of 7, grew up in Sacramento, CA, and now have a super supportive husband while raising 2 fun, spunky children in San Diego, CA that mean the world to me. I believe that FAMILY IS EVERYTHING. I promise to capture the details, but most importantly, the people and moments that surround you on your wedding day.

We got married in Spring of 2021 and this review is LONG overdue! Sandra and her husband Fernando were amazing to work with! I still look back and think about how easy it was to be around them and feel comfortable. They were recommended by our wedding planner. Their videography skills were top notch and we loved our classic long and sneak peek short films. I am forever grateful for their talent and guidance throughout the wedding day festivities, constantly keeping everything in order to capture the best moments. And their wonderful personalities were a joy to be around! Sandra has that artistic eye and somehow kept things light by making us laugh a lot:) She also communicated well giving us updates on when to expect the videos. Thank you for everything!! I highly recommend Sandra Yvette Photography to anyone looking for those raw, natural moments on such a special day.

Hi, I'm Alexx! I grew up in San Diego and went to school in Malibu to study media production & math (I know, weird combo). Since then, I've lived in both Point Loma in SD and in West LA, so I'm always popping around all of SoCal! I absolutely adore weddings for the love, celebration, joy, and romance, so I want to make sure those are your main feelings throughout the day! What that means is I will always remain a calm presence in the chaos to help keep you grounded, but also blend into the background to give you space to just experience your day!

I don't even know where to begin. Alexx was hands down the best photographer we could have asked for. From the start she was supper communicative and within a day of inquiry, we had set up a time to chat and get acquainted. She is incredibly professional, but still super personable! We had so much fun with her at our engagement shoot, and the photos were INCREDIBLE. Her style is so organic and she makes you feel very comfortable from the start. She gave us so many tips leading up to the wedding about what to have ready for her and at what time, while still being super flexible with us if we needed to adapt. Day of with her was a breeze, too! She lead us through all of our photos and we wrapped up family photos quickly enough thanks to her that we were able to spend more time with our guests/family before the reception which was amazing! She had our previews to us within a few days and we are OBSESSED with every photo!! We cannot wait to see the full gallery :) Thank you so much for everything, Alexx!!!

I'm a light and airy wedding photographer in the San Diego area who loves pretty details and glowy light. I've been capturing weddings for 9 years. My images are warm, joyful and fun! I help my couples extensively with timelines to ensure we have the perfect photography timeline to capture all of your important photos.

Amira is absolutely amazing and not only talented but truly such a beautiful person inside and out. Her calming and engaging presence is so comforting and has a perfect blend of guiding a client organically, yet can assist with a pose to feel most feminine/masculine and enhancing the best of one's features. Her ability to capture beautiful moments, heartfelt feelings and joy between her couples, families and everything in between is goosebump worthy. She stops time through her camera and produces images that reflect a story; although the images are still, they are not motionless. She has the ability to capture that moment in its raw form and somehow layers an illusionary movement to the mind. Her photos, and editing combined produces an album of images that encompass a story. Simply put, Amira is magic *heart eyes*
