The finest wedding, boudoir, and artistic portrait photography in Arcadia
Bridal, Engagement & Wedding

Your big day deserves an artist's eye behind the lens.
Weddings are a blast for me. Getting acquainted with the bride through the small shoots leading up to the wedding (Engagement and Bridal portrait sessions) and then the day I get to see her walk down the isle and capture those special moments... unforgettable. Plus, there's all the fun candids I get of the wedding party and the young children all dolled up and being adorable. How could a photographer NOT relish his job?! But let's talk some truth here...

As your wedding day gets closer and your stress levels rise, it's quite easy to forget some of the little things that make the day perfect. Having a large print of the bride displayed proudly for your guests to admire as they come into your wedding (and later at your reception) is one of those important touches that often gets overlooked.

Choosing Sanvean as your all-inclusive wedding photographer will ensure that all of the details regarding portrait work will be taken off of your plate and put on his. He'll be sure that your engagement photos, bridal portraits and wedding day festivities are all captured and presented to you in a timely manner and with a quality second to none.

How it works
As soon as you have your wedding date locked in, it's imperative that you contact me right away to lock in your session dates so everything goes smooth. Wedding season in this area is very busy and the longer you wait to secure your photographer the fewer good options you'll have. Don't make the mistake of procrastinating on booking the photographer of your choice, because you will end up stuck scrambling and scraping the bottom of the barrel.

Engagement portraits of the happy couple are fun and everyone loves to stick the announcement on their fridge and leave it up long after the wedding has come and gone. I'll make sure the images you have to choose from will not only reflect your personalities, but also the love apparent. It's ideal to do this session (at least) 6 weeks before the wedding date so you have time to get them out to your friends and family.

It's best to do the bridal portraits about 2 weeks before your wedding date so that you can get your focus back on all of the other details and not worry about the printed portrait being ready in time. Plus, it gives your beautician and makeup artist a nice "practice run" to get your look just right so that when the wedding day arrives it's a piece of cake to doll you up again.

Your bridal portrait session will last about 2 hours. We're after only one (or a few) *finished shots of you in your dress and makeup, though we'll easily end up with many more, all of which are yours to keep. The bridal session is also a great opportunity to add a boudoir session since you're already made up and beautified to the max. Why not spend a couple more hours capturing artistic and sensual images as a surprise for your mate-to-be. It makes a great honeymoon gift and is a very popular add-on. Adding a 2 hour boudoir shoot to your bridal portrait session is just $400 more, saving you $100 off the normal rate for such a session.

There are plenty of great locations around Arcadia to choose from for the backdrop, in case you don't have a place already in mind. We can even venture out into the desert or mountains if you like.

After the bridal session, you are free to get back to your day. San will get your proofs ready and to your email inbox (usually within 48 hours). As soon as you respond with your selection as the main bridal print, San will get a 24" x 36" mounted canvas print of it delivered to you within a few short days.

When the big day finally arrives, San will be there to get all the memorable shots you'll treasure forever.
