    Look no further for Kindness, Professionalism and Care

    Donna and Rebecca exceeded expectations. The ceremony was beautiful, the process was straightforward and all precautions were taken given the current COVID situation. They made us feel comfortable and at ease throughout the day. Rebecca's photos were splendid. She is great at what she does. We took pictures on the beach and we could not be happier. We would recommend their services wholeheartedly. Our elopement was made all the more special and we have them to thank for it.

    Incredible experience

    On very short notice Donna put together an incredible wedding. She worked with us to include the wording we wanted in the ceremony, arranged for beautiful flowers and timed everything to coincide with sunset on the beach. Rebecca set up and took beautiful photos before, during, and after the ceremony encompassing the natural beauty of the beach and the amazing sunset. COVID19 changed our large beach wedding in Southern California to an intimate beach wedding in Northern California and we couldn’t have been happier with the result.

I was ordained to perform ceremonies as a non-denominational and cross-cultural minister in 2009 through the Center for Sacred Studie, Since my ordination, I’ve helped hundreds of couples from many different beliefs, cultures and genders cross the threshold into marriage. We are here to be Love and when couples join together in marriage they’re bringing this gift into the world.

I love creating a connection with each other. On the day of your wedding, we all feel this as I help you step into becoming a married couple. My sense of humor is often sprinkled into ceremonies. Love is like that…it manifests joy, happiness and beauty into our hearts.

Ensuring that a couple’s expectations are met is something that is taken very seriously. My desire is that both the ceremony planning process and the day that I say the words, “Family and Friends, I now introduce to you as a married couple…” are an incredible, memorable and fun experience!

I became passionate about photography at a very young age (my Father was a photographer and my Mother was an art teacher). Growing up in front of a camera made me dislike having my portrait taken. For a long time I believed that I was an unphotogenic person, and I preferred to be behind the camera rather than posing in front of it. After studying photography extensively, I have come to realize that in the right hands, there is no such thing as an ‘unphotogenic’ person. I pay a great deal of attention to posing and lighting, so that my clients look as radiant in my pictures as they do in real life.

I consider my style to be eclectic as I’ve been trained in studio portraiture as well as photojournalism. I’m always learning new techniques and attending photography workshops when I can. I’m flexible, fun, and my focus is on your needs. I have over 15 years experience photographing weddings, portraits, and events. I know how to make sure that you look your absolute best, whether it’s indoors or outdoors.
