About

Hi, I'm Paige a San Diego wedding photographer, specializing in small wedding days and elopements.

My style leans heavily on my background in photojournalism, sprinkled with a dash of modern, editorial-style portraiture to artfully tell your wedding day story. My work often takes me up and down the coast of California, most frequently in Southern California, but available for travel worldwide.


My approach


I'm passionate about crafting unique wedding experiences with heart and intention. I'm always striving to create images that capture how it felt. Sometimes this means foregoing a perfectly composed shot for a blurry one, or what the table looks like *after* it's been enjoyed, and the nuanced exchanges between the people you love. I don't subscribe to any one formula when documenting. Instead, I'm looking for what makes your story and your relationships 'you.' Because that's what makes photos timeless and worthwhile.

I go all in with my couples. The way we connect, from the very beginning, will ultimately play a big part in the experience I'm able to create for you. My process requires a whole lot of trust, mixed in with vulnerability so you can be fully present in the moment and free to let your guard down. I want to get to know the real you and create meaningful images you'll cherish down the road.

Most importantly: all are welcome here <3

Incredible photographer and experience- elopement shoot

We had an incredible experience working with Paige for our elopement photoshoot. She was kind and professional from the start, making the process of booking and planning seamless and organized. She was so lovely to meet in person and made us feel at ease on our special day when we were nervous about being photographed. She created beautiful, natural, and awe inspiring photos with her incredible talent. I have nothing but good things to say about Paige and her work.

Better get her booked!

Paige shot our wedding party over the summer and I鈥檓 beyond happy that she was recommended to us. She made us feel so comfortable taking photos and she completely understood our vision for the party. All of my friends kept saying how much they loved her as well!

The photos came out so well and I would recommend adding on the film photos. We also purchased a photo album through Paige and the whole experience was seamless and perfect. Both my husband and I will cherish our photos and the album for the rest of our lives. I鈥檓 addition to our book, we purchased two mini versions for our parents. Both our parents loved this and it was such a speacial way to thank them for everything they did.

As I said, Paige was the best and such a dream to work with. If you鈥檙e considering her, I say go ahead and get her booked while you can!

Amazing beautiful natural fun!

My husband and I booked Paige for our anniversary session. This shoot was so amazing. She was patient and fun-loving. I loved her direction and energy from start to finish! My husband and I are both photographers so it was great to have an awesome experience in front of the camera rather than behind. We love all of the images, they are beautiful and natural. Paige really captured our love beautifully!
