About

$3,850 Most Popular Price

Portraits by the Bay was founded 10 years ago, however, I began my journey into photography at age 17. My primary interests consisted of people and places and how through travel the photos took on a journalistic approach. What really intrigued me most was how these people related to their environment. Friends and family who viewed my photos let it be known that I had found my niche.

My familiarity with the area has specialized my business in coastal weddings and I believe it truly shows in my work. I have a non-traditional, journalistic approach to reveal the story of your most important day all with an unobtrusive presence.

My belief is to be as casual and light-hearted as possible to keep the day moving smoothly. I truly love what I do because I get to go to work doing something that I have always enjoyed. And the best part of it is that it's always a happy occasion with many new relationships to be made.

    Perfect wedding day

    Portraits by the bay helped make my wedding smooth and amazing. They made my husband and I super comfortable since we are not that photogenic. I highly recommend them for anyone who needs photography and videography. They are fantastic, friendly, and responsive. Thank you!

    Wonderful!

    From beginning to end, we loved working with Portraits by the Bay. We first met one of their photographers, Matt, at a bridal event and immediately felt like we had found a company we really clicked with. We initially booked them for photography only, but ended up having them do our videographer as well. The Portraits staff was amazingly responsive and answered my hundreds of questions quickly and accurately. They were SO incredibly wonderful the day of. There was a fire down the road from the venue and the WHOLE town was covered in a blanket of smoke, and Plans A and B for photos were both impossible. I didn't know what to do and they figured out somewhere for us to go and the unplanned pictures came out amazing! I'm so glad we worked with Portraits by the Bay :)

    Love love love

    We loved working with Portraits by the Bay! Jason knows what he is doing and kept us on time with the day. We planned with him our timeline for the day and he was very flexible with allowing us to take pictures at multiple places. We got married a week ago and already have our gallery. We love every single photo taken, which we normally hate how we come out in photos. Jason and his crew were amazing to work with. They were professional and fun at the same time! We would recommend everyone to use them!
