// organic, intimate wedding photography for modern, non-traditional couples with eclectic yet sophisticated style.
Emily is the founder of Anna Delores Photography; the name “Anna Delores” comes from her maternal great-grandmother (“Anna”) and paternal grandmother (“Delores”).
Emily lives just south of Santa Barbara with her boyfriend and two dogs. She has been photographing weddings since 2012, when she ditched her office gig in Los Angeles and moved to her hometown to get the business going.
Emily is very fond of naps (not on wedding days, of course) and has a serious weakness for beautiful shoes, Anthropologie, modern bohemian style, and frozen yogurt. If you play guilty pleasure Taylor Swift on the dance floor at your wedding, she will dance like a crazy person.
Rhianna is a creative powerhouse, wedding warrior, and supermom. Originally from Seattle, Rhianna moved to Southern California in 2011 and never looked back; that same year, she graduated from the Wedding Photography Certificate Program at Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara.
Rhianna has been an associate photographer with Anna Delores since 2014. She lives in Ventura with her fiancé and two wonderful sons.
Rhianna brings high energy, love, and “aloha” vibes to your wedding day (this babe is all about Hawaii). You’ll also want her at your wedding because she used to be a hip-hop dancer, and she’ll hit the dance floor with her incredible Michael Jackson impression (if you ask nicely).
full-service wedding photography
Anna Delores Photography prioritizes artistry, technical precision, and communication; we offer a full-service wedding experience for modern, non-traditional couples in search of a professional yet fun-loving photography team. Our clients make photography a priority when planning their weddings, and they trust Anna Delores Photography’s creative vision and expertise. They ultimately receive a collection of organic, intimate wedding images to share with future generations, AND have a good time with us on their wedding day (we take our jobs seriously, but we’re also here to enhance the enjoyment of your day!).
Your wedding is a big deal, and the day itself will go by faster than you can imagine. Your wedding photography collection is not just a visual record of the day; it should also transport you back to the way you felt. The anticipation of getting ready, the surreal moment of exchanging vows, the incomparable joy of partying with all the people you love in one place. The day itself is fleeting, but photography is a powerful memory-keeper. It’s a time machine.
We believe in having a personal connection with your photographer, and that your comfort level with your photography team produces better, more authentic imagery.
We also recognize that this is YOUR day, and although we are artists and take pride in our work, we’re part of a team of vendors and are here to make your day amazing. Here’s what you can expect from Anna Delores Photography on your wedding day:
- a unique combination of styling, posing, and organic, true-to-life moments
- gentle guidance during portraits to help you look your best while still looking like yourself
- collaboration with your entire wedding vendor team to help execute the most beautiful, stress-free experience possible
- friendly, personable interaction with family and wedding guests
- attention to detail and micro-styling of your wedding elements and decor
The biggest compliments we consistently receive from clients are that we captured not only the details and people, but the mood of the day, and that we felt like friends at the wedding. Our aim is for you to feel comfortable with us! Your photos will look better and your memories will yield warm, fuzzy feelings. Our ultimate goal is for your photography collection to remind you of how you felt on your wedding day.
