We are Tiffani Matsuura and Ellie Fuqua: sisters, best friends, principal photographers, and the founders of Sun & Sparrow Photography. Born and raised in Southern California, we reside in the greater Los Angeles area. While we share many things, the greatest passion we share is our love of family and fine art photography for weddings, engagements, maternity, newborns and so much more. When we’re not capturing life’s most beautiful moments, we are currently growing our own families in Los Angeles.
When a client hires Sun & Sparrow, they are hiring our team for our ability to tell their unique story through our lenses in fine art photography. We are inspired by your truest forms of love in moments that are candid and organic. We also love creating unique naturally inspired images that transport you. One of the most important parts of our process is to get to know you as a couple or family. We want you to feel comfortable and confident in our artistry, so that you can reveal your natural love to shine in its own best light. Being fine art photographers means that we take the time to be inspired and create a beautiful story of your love. Our inspiration and philosophy behind photographing comes from admiring love. Loving others is what makes our whole lives worthwhile.
It is our team’s and heart’s desire to capture each and every one of your intimate moments to share with your loved ones for generations to come. We have the very esteemed privilege of gifting sweet moments back for you to share for lifetimes.
Tiffani & Ellie,

Best Wedding Decision Ever!
We could not have been happier with our decision to book with Sun and Sparrow! Our wedding was on 9/28/19 at the Ebell of LA, where Sun and Sparrow is one of their recommended photographers. When we saw their portfolio, and their romantic, whimsical shots - we were immediately sold.
Tiffani and Ellie were amazing to work with. They are the sweetest, nicest people ever, but also very professional at the same time. Doing a day of timeline was extremely helpful to share with our other vendors. The best part was that many of our other vendors followed their lead for the day's scheduling because they are so experienced. Tiffani and Ellie helped us feel so at ease by helping us pose and come up with great suggestions for photos. The best part was that we didn't have to think at all during our wedding, just follow their instructions, and we came out with the most beautiful photos! They were in general just so caring and sweet during the whole process, even helping me hook up my bustle at one point because none of my bridesmaids could figure it out.
Really recommend doing engagement photos with them as well to get a feel for their style and to start developing the relationship!
The quality of their work speaks for itself, but they are also just amazing human beings.
HIGHLY recommend them!Sent on 01/04/2020

100% recommend Sun & Sparrow!
We found sun and sparrow photography after extensive searching for a photography that would be able to capture our vision for our wedding. After viewing sample photos we knew we had to book Tiffani and her team. Throughout the whole booking and planning process, Tiffani was extremely helpful in giving tips on how to plan, referrals to other vendors if we ever needed it and was very responsive to emails. When the wedding was almost here we had a long phone call with Tiffani who helped us create our day of timeline and she really worked with us to get a feel for how we want our wedding to be captured and remembered. We ended up using the timeline we created with her to give to the other vendors and our day of coordinator as well. On the day of the wedding, Tiffani and her crew showed up early scouted the area and led the day capturing all the moments we wanted. They were very professional, and accommodating to the bride and groom and even had to deal with rain all day but we still got the shots we wanted! We got a Canvas of one of our favorite photos as part of our package and it arrived in a great condition, shipped from California to South Carolina. It is also a very high-quality Canvas piece that we will treasure for the rest of our lives. Overall we were very happy and pleased with our experience with sun and sparrow photography and would highly recommend them to any of our friends and family if they need photographers for any occasion.Sent on 07/10/2019

Look no further: hire Sun & Sparrow!!
My now husband who works in media saw their photos and immediately said "These are real professionals! Their editing is superb." (after looking at tons of other photographers). They were slightly out of our ideal budget but honestly, worth every cent.
Tiffani was our main point of contact and she knows weddings inside and out. She went through the wedding timeline clearly and just knew what to expect on the day of and asked a lot of good questions.
On the day Tiffani and her team of Ellie and Julie handled the day perfectly and got all the family photos requested by my mom but also got great candids and romantics.
The wedding day is so busy and having professional photographers who know exactly what to do allows us to have wonderful photos to look back on.Sent on 04/25/2019

Sun and Sparrow (Tiffani and Ellie) were absolutely amazing to work with. As a coordinator, I so appreciate vendors who take the time to work with me for the benefit of the wedding as a whole. They are not just concerned about getting great pictures, they truly care that the bride and groom have an amazing wedding day. And then those pictures! Holy moly, when I saw how gorgeous they came out, I was in awe. They took a beautiful wedding and turned the pictures into a true work of art. Such a pleasure to work with, and turned out an awesome product, can't get better than that!
All of the photographers from Sun & Sparrow do amazing work! It's a joy to collaborate with their crew both on and off of events! They arrive on time and are active participants in creating timelines that work best for the event day. Their eye for lighting and how to bring out the most beautiful hues is superb, capturing the most romantic feel of that special day. My clients are always so grateful they chose Sun & Sparrow to shoot their wedding. They walk away with tons of beautiful pics, from the details to the lovely couple moments to fun full family table shots!
I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Tiffani and Ellie of Sun & Sparrow at our joint work wedding this past Sunday. As an event planner, it is crucial to have professional vendors that know what they are doing and are able to handle timelines diplomatically. These type of vendors can either make or break an event - good vendors make events exponentially better and this duo is definitely good! They are fast, efficient, communicative, and extremely easy to work with. They work hard for their clients - I plan on recommending them to future clients and sincerely hope I get the chance to work with them again even though we are based out of two different parts of California! Much love to Sun & Sparrow!
