San Luis Obispo - Central Coast Wedding Photographer

Wedding Photography

I can't think of a more beautify place to live than the Central Coast.  It's such a privilege to work with couples as they enter that exciting stage of planning their wedding photography! With so many exciting wedding venues and scenic spot to choose from for both the engagement photography and wedding photographs, it becomes a rich and beautiful journey catering to each wedding couple's own desires and unique love story. I often marvel to think that my parents moved to San Luis Obispo when I was a year old and I've gotten to live here for most of my life. On the Central Coast we have beaches, fields, hills, mountains, and streams, barns, architecture, treats and that great big blue sky that all local to the area have grown to love. The Central Coast has become a prime wedding destination location in California. From the wonderful beaches offered in Pismo Beach, Avila Beach, Grover Beach, Morro Bay, Cayucas and Cambria to the lush and green vineyards in Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo and all the way to Santa Ynez you have much to choose from. Rustic barns, open fields, mountains and hills forests and so much more.  I am so blessed to have had the opportunity to photograph hundreds and hundreds of weddings delving into all of these types of locations. Wedding photography is my passion. It's a wonderful field that requires artistry, creativity, emotion and most of all passion. I know you are looking for just the right person that can be trusted with you wedding photography and who possesses  the talent you desire.  I'll do everything I can to earn that trust and deliver you the photography you deserve.  I started ProImage Weddings wanting to use my creativity, passion and photography talents to serve couples on their most special day!

Engagement Photography

An engagement photography session is the start of our photographic journey together. We'll discuss possibly locations here in San Luis Obispo, throughout the Central Coast or maybe even closer to where you are located, if you live somewhere else and the Central Coast is only where you have decided to have your wedding ceremony.  We'll approach our time together with a relaxed and fun attitude and make the most of it. I'll encourage you guys to feel no pressure but just be yourselves. I’ll coach you were when needed but mostly just let you interact naturally! Laugh, joke around, tickle each other and hold each other like you do in those meaningful moments. It will be fun. We're looking to get the best pre wedding photographs we can, ones that are full of life and express who you are as individuals and as a couple.  Having the engagement session will help you get more comfortable in front of the camera, let us get more comfortable with each other, while at the same time giving us the chance to capture stunning and memory filled engagement photographs!

Wedding Photography Albums

It's fun and amazing to put the time, effort, excitement and passion into capturing all those great engagement and wedding photographs. Capping it off is the art of weaving those priceless photographs into a physical keepsake of a wedding album that will feature and preserve the beauty of your relationship and this wonderful stage of your life. It's an investment into you will cherish for the rest of your lives and will even live beyond you for your children to cherish many decades in the future. Today's day and age and trend is all about digital.  Don't get me wrong, I love the utility, freedom and customization of digital formats.  But there is something uniquely timeless, tangible and fantastic about a real, physical, artfully design wedding photography album that you get to hold in your hands and touch.  If you are inclined to make the investment, you'll pick out the photographs that you enjoy most, I'll craft the wedding album and then you'll have the option to edit and make changes to your engagement and wedding day love story and how it's portrayed by photography in the album! Years down the road, you'll be glad you took the time and resources to make sure you chose to invest in a wedding album. I'm sure of it!

Wedding Photography Planning

Planning a wedding is a monumental endeavor, a fact you have found out or are about to!! One of the most integral and important aspects to your wedding day planning is your wedding photography timeline.  Great wedding photographs don’t just happen magically.  Time must be made to make sure we get all everything you want.  I started ProImage Weddings in 2008 so I have 10 years of experience and I’ve photographed over 350 weddings. I’ve seen just about everything that can and does happen on a wedding day and I know not only how to plan for a great timeline, but how to avoid a lot of common mistakes. I’m going to work with all my heart and passion to capture the wonderful details of your wedding, the beautiful emotions, the cherished wedding ceremony, the meaningful group shots, candid moments, beautiful couple shots and all the fun and craziness of your wedding reception! I want to capture and preserve everything in the photographs that is and will be meaningful to you. While I have ton of experience and preferences for what I think works best, you will always have the final say.  The fact that it’s your wedding, your most special day, is not lost on me.  I know we both want to capture the best wedding photographs ever. But even more important than that is you want to enjoy your wedding day. Nothing will supersede that!  On your wedding day I aim to be quiet and confident support to you, helping and guiding where I can, but not intrusive nor demanding.  It’s your day, and I’m there for you.  Here on the Central Coast there are many great wedding photography locations. Some you may know about and others you may not. There may be some great little spots right near your wedding venue that make for a great photo op. The best wedding photography is all about “good light”. Based on the time of day and the location I’m going to tell you where the best light is and how we can utilize it best. It’s these type of things that I bring to the table with my wedding photography experience.

 I look forward to working with you by phone and/or in person and we discuss the planning of your wedding photography!

Wedding Videography

Wedding photography captures timeless moments - one at a time. Captured and there to remember, imagine and feel - one impactful moment at a time. Videography on the other hand captures those moments melted and molded together along with the sounds coupled with dynamic movement that fills in so many blanks with a myriad of little gestures and expressions as they happen in slow motion or real time. You'll be able to hear the tone and emotion of voices, hear the laughter and watch as the best moments of your most special day unfold before your very eyes.  This is something only video can do! There's also great advantage in having a wedding photographer and videographer that work together on a regular basis. They know how to coordinate their movements so that your most key photographs and video moments are not encumbered. ProImage Wedding has teamed up with Justin Thompson Media to bring you an amazing bundled photography/videography collection greatly discounted for your benefit! We work as a team helping each other as we each craft our own unique artful capturing of your wedding day story!
