What to Expect

What to Expect

Your Photography Experience

From the tender first kiss you shared at the altar, the way he looks at you the first time he sees you in your wedding gown, the tear-filled dance you shared with your Daddy on your wedding day, and The laughs you shared running barefoot down the beach. Don’t let these memories go without being properly documented by someone who knows exactly how to capture them to instantly transport you back into time when you look back on them.


these will all be

I understand the importance of capturing your true personalities, so no awkward poses here! I take time to know you both, ensuring your images reflect your uniqueness. It’s always my mission to create a relaxed natural vibe during the shoot. None of my work so far has featured professional models, I just have a knack for making my couples look like pros! 😉

Photos that feel like YOU!

If perfectly posed-photos are your thing, then we may not be the best fit. Life is messy, let’s dig up those beautiful, messy, real-moments together! My goal is always to create authentically gorgeous moments so you can look back on your photos and feel what it was like to be there, all over again.

Authentic Storytelling

I’m a firm believer that your wedding day should be the BEST. DAY. EVER. and I’m here to make sure that can happen. I will provide you with a ton of resources during planning so that on your big day you can cherish the moments you share with your loved ones. Let’s create an unforgettable wedding experience together!

Stress-Free Experience

You know when you hear a song again that you used to listen to on repeat and it takes you back to a moment in time and makes you feel all over again? That’s what I do with my photography.

Relive the Butterflies

If you like Star Wars, Disney, sitcoms that make you laugh (like the Office or New Girl) then we’re gonna have a ball together! When I’m not drinking obscene amounts of coffee, or eating tacos from the Taco Stand (if you’ve never eaten there and live in So-Cal then we need to change that, pronto), you will probably find me on the banks of a river casting trout bait, or more likely, chasing my 3 kiddos around a campsite! I love exploring new places and taking my camera along for the ride. Adventure is out there! Let’s go find it together! 

Hi, I’m Salisha!

i'm in - let's adventure!

I’m a California girl through and through! I’ve lived in and explored so many great places all over the state of California: from my mountain home tucked in the foothills below Yosemite, to the beaches of San Diego, Santa Cruz, and the bay area! I’ve traversed the deserts of Joshua Tree and Borrego Springs, been to the top of Mammoth Mountain, swam in lakes and rivers and soaked in hot springs! I love this state, its variety of beauty is constantly inspiring me to create and I’m an absolute expert at finding the best locations for an epic photoshoot! Let me help you choose the next amazing place to make some new memories with your boo. Looking for something new to explore? I’m game for that too! I’m always down to travel for a love story. No travel fees!

05. Delivery

Abso-freakin-lutely! Exploring new places is one of my favorite things to do. I’m an expert at choosing amazing spots for bridal shots and I thrive while creating in new environments. The best part? NO TRAVEL FEES!


Of course! Fill out an inquiry form and drop me a line in your comments and I can send you the link to a current wedding or elopement gallery that will vibe with your current vision. 


Nope, I only give my clients the absolute best quality images and the raw files typically aren’t a reflection of my work and current portfolio. If you’re worried about file size and enlargements, then I gotchu! Your gallery will include the perfect size images for gorgeous canvas and metal prints.


I deliver my photos via private online gallery. Every wedding and portrait packages include access to high quality file downloads for each delivered image, available directly from your gallery. You’ll also be able to order stunning prints and products, such as metal-prints (my personal fav), canvases, albums, and more!


Your day can be exactly what you want to make of it, but in most cases we will need to plan out travel time to the locations (including drive time, parking, and hiking to the spot) time for getting ready, the vows, and the post-ceremony celebration!


Yes! My goal is always to serve you as best as I can, so I want to make sure that you’re getting everything your heart desires when it comes to your wedding day photography. If there’s something you desire that isn’t included in your package (extra hours, albums, 2nd shooters, whatever!) then we can absolutely add it on. In our initial consultation, we can discuss each package and decide which option (or in-between option) will best suit your needs!


Depending on where your location is, you may need a permit. After you’ve decided where you’re eloping we can research and find the permit requirements for that area. It’s basically a document signed by the park office that says you’re allowed to do your ceremony there. Permits are pretty simple to obtain and they help assure privacy for your day while also protecting the land and wildlife.


Of course! You can definitely include members of your family in your elopement plans, as long as they are up for the adventure! I recommend inviting only the people you know will help keep the day’s focus on YOU! Some couples prefer to include a very small group (or no one) at the elopement ceremony and then they plan a reception or party to follow on the date or at a later date. There are no rules when it comes to elopement weddings, and that’s part of the freedom!


This is the fun part! Are you envisioning sand in your toes, a gorgeous mountain range, a high-sierra meadow at sunrise, or a cliffside ceremony? If you can dream it, we can make it happen! We'll have to keep in mind travel time, getting ready, and locations that are only for avid hikers. I also have a free quiz I can send to help you narrow the location for you. Just know, I’m always down for an adventure, so don’t be afraid to dream BIG!
