We’re all about the feels.
Anna Delores Photography prioritizes authenticity, artistry, and a supportive, compassionate wedding day experience. Your photographer is your wedding day sidekick, and we consider it our job to make you comfy in front of the camera and sort of forget that you’re even having your photo taken in the first place. Weird, right? We’re actually very good at it.
We provide practical guidance in tandem with creative sensibilities for modern, non-traditional romantics in search of a professional yet fun-loving photography team.
You’re looking for a wedding photographer who not only makes you look beautiful in your photos, but also helps you feel like your best self on your wedding day.
Your wedding is a BIG deal, and for all your planning and preparation right now, you’ve already been told over and over that the day will go by faster than you can imagine (it’s true, unfortunately, but that’s where we come in).
It’s not just about the photos.
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.
Your personal connection and comfort level with your photographer produces better, more authentic imagery.
You’ll receive all kinds of useful info from us during the wedding planning process, and we approach your wedding day with empathy and communication; the goal is for you to feel well-cared for, informed, and trusting of your photographers (oh, and have a ton of stress-free fun at your wedding!).
Who is “Anna Delores”?
The short answer: Emily’s grandmother + great-grandmother.
Right this way for the full story on our studio’s namesakes!
Anna Delores photographers have years of experience, familiarity with all the details and intricacies of a wedding day, and a passion for both beautiful portraits and stunning details. We work with the rest of your professional wedding team to provide couples with a personal, encouraging, creative photography experience.
I’ve been photographing weddings since founding Anna Delores in 2012 and live just south of Santa Barbara with my fiancé and two dogs. I’m currently planning my own wedding for 2021, so I’m even more wedding-obsessed than usual! I’m an avid napper, with serious weaknesses for beautiful shoes, Anthropologie, modern bohemian style, frozen yogurt, and the city of Paris (where I spent a summer in college).
If you play guilty pleasure Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” on the dance floor at your wedding, I WILL dance like a crazy person. I apologize in advance.
I have had a camera in my hand since the age of five, and I will definitely cry at your wedding — the special moment of your first kiss as married spouses gets me every time! I’ll also walk backwards down your aisle to make sure I’m capturing all the joy around you while you head for the biggest party of your lives.
I live in Los Angeles with my two incredible children, our teenage puppy Sgt. Pepper, and our cat Raisin. I love watching reruns of “The Office” and “Parks and Recreation,” I read my daily horoscope, and if I only ate sushi for the rest of my life, that would be fine by me.
I got my first camera when I was eight years old, but got more serious about photography during my senior year of high school. The ceremony is my favorite part of a wedding day; I love seeing couples scoot a little closer to each other during the vows. It’s always a good reminder of how sweet love is!
When I’m not shooting weddings, I love to catch up on Netflix with my husband and son, or experience the great outdoors (the Eastern Sierras and Joshua Tree are among our favorite travel spots). We love to refresh and take a step back from all the normal routines and task lists.
I’ve been a portrait and wedding photographer for a little over six years. My favorite part of a wedding day is family photo time! It’s usually the most crazy, but I love seeing family dynamics.
I’m originally from Hawai’i and love to surf, but I’m also happy to take to the California mountains in winter to enjoy snowboarding. I love to travel (my husband, two girls and I particularly enjoy camping) and I am more than a little obsessed with Christmas — I always go ALL OUT with decorations, and at this point I have an annual allowance for buying new ones so I don’t go overboard.
