Hey! I'm Elizabeth Victoria, and I'm based in Southern California. I photograph weddings mainly in Ventura, Santa Barbara, and Los Angeles counties, and in Pittsburgh, PA. I love to travel and am always looking forward to an adventure, so hit me up if you’re planning an epic destination wedding, cuz I’m sure I can be persuaded to come along!
I’ve been photographing couples getting married for over 12 years! I love being creative, and wedding photography gives me that perfect canvas for creating magic.
My style is a mix of classic, candid, and commercial, giving it a timeless quality. I love bright, crisp, vivid colors with a romantic, fun, relaxed vibe. I want your images to look just like they did on your wedding (ok, maybe just a teeny bit better). I love getting those cute and cuddly shots, and I’m good at it too, damn it, so be prepared to get cozy!
More about Elizabeth Victoria...
While I may look like your average person, on the inside I’m much more of a punk with purple hair and full sleeve tattoos. I had a tongue piercing when I was younger but that’s as far as I got.
I love animals, sometimes more than people. If animals got married and they chose me as their wedding photographer, my life would be complete.
Laughter is the best medicine. Early on in life, I found that joking about something sad helped me to cope. Without humor I’d be an inconsolable blob of tears and snot.
Equality is immensely important to me. I believe everyone should be treated with the same dignity and respect regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, religion, or social class.
Nature is my religion. The waterfalls in Iceland, the Swiss Alps, California’s red woods, the NaPali Coast in Kauai – these places are where I find peace and inspiration.

Couldn't have asked for a better photographer!
We can’t say enough great things about Elizabeth! We got a package that included engagement photos, but since we weren’t in a hurry to take them (we didn’t do save the dates), they didn’t happen until February (and our wedding was in April). Usually you can count on relatively decent weather in Southern California, but for some reason we were having the weirdest, coldest, windiest and wettest weekends! Luckily, all of our schedules allowed for playing it by ear a few times and I think it was the 3rd time we “scheduled” it that it actually worked out. We managed to hit 3 spots in the allotted time: a super pretty park, a ceremony runner-up location overlooking the city and the dog park where we have spent countless hours with our 3 dogs. Bonus: we had our 3 dogs with us for the last one and got some great shots of the five of us. The turnaround was a lot quicker than what we expected and it was quite a surprise to have a sneak peek within 2 days and her engagement blog post a few weeks later (along with all the photos)!Sent on 08/12/2019
Cut to the wedding:
Elizabeth was super helpful in terms of figuring out a good timeline to get in getting ready photos and a good portion of the reception. We did not do a first look, so yes photos during the cocktail hour were a little rushed, but between her and her 2nd photographer, wer got some great photos and hit pretty much all the ones of family that I wanted. As with our engagement photos, we got a sneak peek of a handful of photos a few days later and the blog post (with more photos!) a couple weeks after our wedding. As a pleasant surprise when we returned from our honeymoon about a month after our wedding, our whole gallery was complete!
I can’t wait to see our wedding album. I’ve gone through the photos so many times on the computer reliving the day and can’t get over how bright and natural all the colors are and how well Elizabeth and Tana worked to get a “complete” day. Elizabeth is great with direction and giving hints to help you laugh and look natural and has kissing tips, too. If you’re looking for someone who knows her craft, is funny and easy-going, but gets things done, definitely give her a shout. If you like sarcasm and witty remarks, she can do supply that, too!

Elizabeth is THE BEST! She was so accomodating and awesome to our wedding party in LA after having done the big ceremony and party abroad. Elizabeth and her assistant Jenny made sure they got all the shots we wanted - from group photos to people to anything you could imagine. We had a huge group rolling with us and she was so patient and attentive to make the perfect photos and capture the style and look we wanted.Sent on 08/11/2018
Leading up to the day she was so communicative and responsive and open to everything, I can’t recommend working with her enough!! Thank you for everything!!!

Elizabeth was recommended to me just a month and a half before our wedding. I reached out to her and she responded right away. We first had a conversation over the phone, which i felt broke the ice. I told her about our love story and i feel like it immediately connected us. We then scheduled a meet up ASAP. We got along with her instantly on a personal level. And she showed us her previous work, which we were so impressed and just made our decision a no brainer! We asked her to shoot our engagement photos too! And let me tell you- they turned out beautifully! We expressed to her our vision and how we wanted to photos to look and oh my god did it turn out so dreamy and romantic! Best add on to our wedding photos! Memories we will forever cherish! (cold beach water included! Lol) Now, i can tell you about our wedding photos! We gave her a list of the “must” photos we had to have and those were taken cared of! Group photos and family photo were so beautiful! But the candid photos: photos of me walking down the aisle, crying, laughing, my husband looking at me, my dad crying, us dancing, my husband and his brother goofing around, among others, were just moments we can never re-do, Elizabeth captured every single one of them beautifully- that my family and friends who weren’t able to make it felt the love and emotion of that special day! One of my friends messaged me that she felt my happiness radiate through the photos!Sent on 05/29/2018
She released some photos along with her blog about our wedding and i thought that was a special touch. And when she sent us, all of our wedding photos, We didn’t know where to begin! We hooked up the laptop to our TV so we can see it on a bigger scale. It was just beautiful! We couldn’t have picked a better photographer! And we knew from the very beginning that if there was anything on our wedding to-do list, the photos was one of our TOP priorities. Elizabeth captured our special day and those moments and memories we can forever cherish!
Elizabeth and I had a wedding together at Fess Parker DoubleTree in Santa Barbara. She is fantastic to work with! She made the bride, groom and everyone in the photos quickly at ease. Elizabeth is friendly and easy-going while still being timely. Her flexibility and well-tuned eye are an asset to any coordinator.
Excellent eye for detail!
