Born + Bred in the golden state
THE CALIFORNIA POPPIES is a creative design and photography studio that specializes in intimate weddings, elopements, engagements and portraits. We’re built around the concept of capturing genuine moments and real humans, no aggressive photoshop or forced poses here. We want you to look at your photos and see yourself and your loved ones, not stilted smiles and awkward stances.

HER HOBBIES INCLUDE SPENDING TOO MUCH TIME AND MONEY IN THRIFT STORES, TAKING LONG, DIRECTIONLESS DRIVES WHILE LISTENING TO PODCASTS AT AN UNGODLY VOLUME AND SEEKING TO CAPTURE AND CREATE BEAUTY WHEREVER POSSIBLE.
