Our story began in New York where we met and studied photography as well as sociology. We photographed our first wedding together as photography students. Since then, our parallel interests have led us to photograph across the globe - telling people's stories and documenting life. For us, photography and people are our passions and we want you to know that we are truly dedicated to our work. Narrative Images Photography is an award winning San Diego based photography studio led by professional photographers Richard Unis and Bernadette Johnston. We specialize in fine art photojournalism, documentary wedding photography, portraiture and event photography. As a San Diego based company, we are available for national and international travel.
We have been photographing weddings in San Diego, CA, across the US, and internationally for the past 10 years.
We were voted 1 of the top three photographers in San Diego (10 News A-List)

WOW! Literally our reaction to every picture! You two are phenomenal. You captured every precious moment on our special days. Even though the henna night was a different culture than you two are used to, you guys pulled it off so well! You guys listened to all the details I shared beforehand and didn’t miss to capture any of the important moments. It was so cold and windy, but you two didn’t complain once. You kept pushing through and continually giving us tips and tricks on how to look natural and beautiful. Luis and I and the entire bridal party all enjoyed having you two be present at our wedding and henna night. We both appreciate you two so much. We are so lucky to find the greatest and sweetest photographers. It was 2 days of hectic schedule but you guys were on top of it. We will forever be grateful to you and Rick. I can't wait to have future events to celebrate, you and Rick will be the first party vendor we will make sure to book first.Sent on 05/22/2018

Narrative Images was recommended by our wedding planner and we could not have chosen a better fit for my daughter's wedding. We added the Photo Studio for the reception. It was a hit! Bernadette was fabulous to work with. Narrative Images has a style that captured the essence of the day.Sent on 03/07/2012

Bernadette & Rick are just two amazing people and their easygoing, genuine nature is reflected in how they shoot the day and interact with their couples.Sent on 11/16/2017
They are attentive in the planning process as well as on the wedding day, flexible and just so fluid with their approach. They have a calm-ness about them, which as a Coordinator, is a great positive, since they are with the couple majority of the day. For my last wedding with them, we had a unique location for shooting and it required some stair climbing and succinct timing and they nailed it! Their handling of the post-production & album afterwards are timely and just as attentive all the way through!
True professionals and ones I happily refer!
Lovely people. I really enjoyed working with them. The professionalism of their photos and website really stand out.
These photographer ARE the BEST in the business. I remember when they first started as a diamond in the rough. The old saying of "the cream rises to the top" stands very true to Narrative Images. They ARE the cream of the crop.
