Papernote Wedding Photography » Southern California Wedding, Engagement, and Portrait Photography

  • About Us

    Our style of photography is a combination of journalism and art. We observe everyone in a natural setting and create images that evoke mood and emotion. We want to get to know you and understand who you are while taking photographs that capture the real you. Getting to know the people we meet is something that we treasure and has been one of the most fulfilling aspects of being a photographer. Our goal as photographers is to understand who you are as an individual, as a couple, and as a family; we wish to meet you, know you, and capture the real you with our vision and art.
