  • We found Josh on Instagram, and immediately fell in love with his style of photography. When we reached out, Josh was so communicative and really took the time to hear our vision for our wedding. Because of a global pandemic, we had to change our plans and he was so flexible to accommodate. Coby and I eloped, so we got to hang out with Josh for a few hours. He brought us to the best spots and really knows how to chase light. Also, fair warning, he’s a very cool guy..we both ended our night wanting to be friends with him! We are so happy with our pictures-we can’t stop looking at them.

  • Besides the fact that Josh is an artist and really made our pictures look like art, he is suuuuch a nice guy! He's super likeable and easy to work with. He understands how important your pictures are to you and makes you feel like you are the only thing that matters at that moment. He took his time with us, made us feel comfortable and never made us feel rushed. He went above and beyond to get the "right" shot (which ended up being so many for us). We shot in different locations and got different angles that demonstrated different feelings and moments. Everyone has told us that our pictures are stunning and beautiful, but what is most important to me is that he captured us as we are. He caught so many pictures of us being candid. All our pictures look natural and the happiness and love we felt that day beams through. In addition, he sent us a good portion of pictures the very next morning! He is the best!!! Our engagement pictures were so amazing some people joked that we no long... Read more

  • Josh is incredible to work with. My fiance and him coordinating our surprise proposal in Big Sur flawlessly. Big Sur has ZERO service so they had to prepare for every single detail and even had a second plan in case they weren't able to meet up with each other. Good news :) Josh found us and was able to caputre the entire moment. We shot for 1 hour after the proposal and it was a blast! Josh wasn't afraid to ask us to climb a cliff in our nice clothes to get some pretty spectacular shots and I am so happy he did! They are some of my favorite photos. This was my fiance and I's first photo shoot together and Josh was very patience and laughed with us as we navigated trying to be natural in front of a camera (and the wind). He had a lot of ideas on how to pose, etc. but end of the day, he wanted us to be ourselves. Go check out his Instagram TODAY! All of his photos are so intimate and amazing.

  • Joshua was such a pleasure for the entirety of the time I got to chat and interact with him AND he is so good at what he does. He is personable, professional, kind, and a skilled photographer. Even after the wedding day Josh kept in touch, checked in, edited some prints in a way we desired, and gave us recommendations for our honeymoon trip to Kauai that allowed us to explore places we never would have otherwise. He’s a great person and has an eye for photography and does some beautiful edits. Would 100% recommend Josh to anyone I know and all of you upcoming husbands and brides on here :)

  • Wedding photography was very important to my husband and I. Once we found Josh, we knew we had to have him at our wedding. He is absolutely amazing to work with and fun to be around. We met for an "engagement" shoot in the redwoods a few days before our wedding, and I was amazed by the photos he provided a few days later. Josh was great directing us and made sure the photos were not too posed and captured some great candids. I hate having my photo taken, but Josh made me feel amazing and the photos are incredible. I was expecting 3 photos in our preview a few days after the wedding, but he delivered over 100 stunning photos. I can't wait to see the rest of them. If you are getting married or eloping in California, hire Josh!

  • Writing this review has been one of the most important tasks I have had on my to do list since I got back from my intimate wedding in the woods. Yet I have the hardest time finding the right words to explain my experience with Josh. So I’ll just start by saying that he created an experience that went beyond every last one of my expectations. I knew before I even saw the photos that I made the right choice. He was patient, kind and encouraging. He laughed at terrible jokes and dealt with my very.... outlandish family. He found us the most incredible spot and was willing to meet the day before so we knew where to go. He was everything you could have hoped for in the person who would document the most important day of your life. And boy did he document. Within, I want to say 12 hours? He had a preview of close to 90 photos for us. 90! Edited and mind blowing photos from the various locations he took us to. And they made just about every person in my family cry. He so beautifully capture... Read more

  • I cannot speak highly enough about Josh, his passionate creativity and his incredible work. Living across the country, I didn't know where to start with looking for a photographer. I quickly found Josh and fell in love with his style; his ability to capture light, scenery and moments you could only dream about seeing in pictures. I reached out and got an immediate response and set a phone date for a few days later. It was so refreshing to speak to someone so personable and kind. Josh was able to learn a bit more about us and understand the style of photos we wanted and immediately sent us over some spots to get our feedback - they were perfect places for us to shoot at! The big day arrived and we had a blast together! We felt as though we had known Josh for years, rather than just meeting. Josh made us feel so comfortable, as if he wasn't even there while he was taking pictures. To say we are obsessed and absolutely in love with the photos would be an understatement. His abil...

  • My husband and I traveled from Michigan to exchange vows and Josh captured our day elegantly! In a world when you have endless photographers to look through when planning your day, look no further... SERIOUSLY! Josh was so kind and relaxed! He captured us naturally as we are! Our day was unforgettable and his work is first class! He was easy to communicate with and even suggested locations for us! I will treasure his photos for years to come! Thank you again Josh you are a true artist and an awesome person!

  • I found Josh on Instagram. I had booked an amazing yurt resort in Big Sur for the proposal I had planned. Only problem was, I had never been there, I had never met Josh, AND there was no cell service at the resort. Josh and I talked about a week before to figure out timing and location of where I’d be popping the question. To Josh’s credit, the whole thing went off without a hitch and we couldn’t have been happier with the shots we got. More importantly, Josh connected with both of us immediately. We felt so comfortable sharing such an intimate moment with him. He asked questions and made great conversation but allowed us to soak in that moment together. It really felt like we were hanging out with an old friend. We got everything done in less than an hour and just like that, it was all over. In about an hour, Josh delivered for us big time and also made two new friends. Use him if you’ve got something special that you need captured!

  • We live on the east coast and had a destination elopement in Big Sur on New Years Day. From our initial outreach to today Joshua has been very responsive and easy to work with. We had a call in advance to work out some of the details of where and when we'd meet. He was familiar with the resort where we stayed and had suggestions for where we might get some good shots. We loved that Joshua was receptive to our requests and ideas for what we wanted to capture, but also offered great guidance and recommendations for shots that would look nice and locations to shoot. He was quick to turn around a handful of nice shots right away so we could share our great news with family and friends. The rest of our album was ready in 2 and half weeks. Joshua's work is great and he seemed truly happy to be a part of our special moment. Plus he came out on a holiday! We couldn't be more pleased with our choice to work with him.

  • Josh made us feel very comfortable and captured the essence of our day perfectly. He goes above and beyond to make sure every important moment is captured in the time he is booked. Photography was very important to us so it was our “budget reach” and we couldn’t be happier that we went with Josh!

  • Great photographer and easy to work with! We came from out of state to elope in Big Sur. Josh emailed with us to get all the details set before the big day. He gave us recommendations for officiants, too. It rained the day of our wedding, and he offered to come back the next day to get more photos if we wanted. Our photos are stunning, and I love showing them off!

  • Joshua exceeded our expectations. Our wedding album is just stunning and so so beautiful. We truly cannot thank him enough for the wonderful experience at the Carmel Mission. From the moment we saw his website we looked no further and booked him immediately (luckily he was available). He was there on time (early) and as the Mission doors of the chapel opened, there he was snapping the happiest moment of my life being walked down the isle with my son by side towards the man of my dreams, He was present during the ceremony capturing our vows, tne love between my husband and I, happy and joyous moments with all our closet friends and family. He had such an eye for knowing exactly how to incorporate all the beautiful elements of the grand architecture of the Carmel Mission and the garden grounds as the backdrop,. Joshua not only has a great eye and talent as a photographer but an awesome vibe, and he truly captured moments that simply cannot be put into words. We can’t tnank Joshua en... Read more
