About

2022 Couples' Choice Awards Winner
$4,750 Most Popular Price

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

    Engagement Session - Montana de Oro

    I might be a little biased being that I've known Paige for a number of years but the work she does is absolutely stunning. I think it's likely that most people aren't incredibly comfortable with a camera pointed at you for any length of time but Paige erases that awkwardness with her calming energy. She gently coaches you and makes the experience easy, light and fun. She also goes the extra mile to ensure you get "the" photo, even if that means precariously perching on rocky beach sides. Paige also offers photos using her 35mm and Polaroid camera which is such a unique touch. Our engagement photos are more beautiful and special than we ever could have imagined for. It was a no-brainer decision to pick Paige to shoot our wedding next summer and we could not be more excited.

    Amazing, beautiful and the best decision

    If you are trying to decide on a wedding photographer/destination photographer then you have come to the right place!!! Paige was the BEST decision we could have possibly made when thinking about who we wanted to take our engagement photos. My fiance and I are from Kansas, and we knew that we wanted to be unique and travel out of state to take our engagement photos, so we landed on taking them in Big Sur, California. I started comparing different photographers from California and since I knew we would be traveling so far to make this happen, this decision was very STRESSFUL. When I reached out to Paige she was so quick to respond and she answered every question that we could've possibly had trying to figure out how this was going to be planned. Leading up to the engagement shoot, she sent me SO many examples of what colors to wear and what would pair best together for the scenery we wanted, sharing Pinterest boards of inspiration for how she envisioned our shoot. She also gave me extensive information on the weather and how to pack for our week long trip and what to bring the day of. When we finally met Paige in person for the first time, she was so sweet, naturally caring and ALL ABOUT US!!! When we received our full photo gallery, they were the absolute most amazing pictures we had ever seen. She captured us BEAUTIFULLY! ( We were pretty awkward and she knew exactly how to calm us down and make us laugh). Not only did she absolutely deliver with our pictures, but they are all different in the best way. THANK YOU SO MUCH PAIGE!!! You have been the best decision we have made yet in planning this wedding. 100000% recommend. If you are having doubts on who to hire for your photographer- LOOK NO FURTHER!

    Incredible Photography

    As soon as I saw Paige's photography style, I knew she was the person I wanted to book for my wedding. She is so sweet and wonderful to work with. She was always quick to respond and made me feel so comfortable the day of, despite my jitters. She captured every moment of our wedding day and took such care in curating each and every one of our photos. We also got the heirloom album, which is an absolute must! It is so special to be able to go through and relive that day and we have Paige to thank for it.
