I’m literally a photographer and still get nervous and feel awkward when taking photos! But, don’t you worry because we’re gonna make sure you look bomb.

Stepping in front of the camera is never easy.

experience

You’ll walk away from the session feeling carefree, happy after just having a good time which is always my ultimate goal. The beautiful photos are just an added bonus!

It's about me creating a space for you to be YOU. Because to me, these photos aren't just about the here and right now, they are forever. This may sound a little dramatic but, my hope is that you're able to look at these photos years from now and remember all the feelings and things that made you happy during this time. 

Taking photos should be a fun and easy experience. I do my absolute best to create a seamless experience from beginning to end. From the first contact, I want you to feel like you know me and together we can figure out location, outfits, accessories, timing, all of the little details to help your San Francisco wedding vision come to life. These are your photos at the end of the day and I want you to be absolutely in love with them.

I aim to create an experience for all of my clients that allows them to feel confident, relaxed, and like themselves.

I can’t say enough good things about Torez. Not only did the pictures turn out beautifully, but she really went above and beyond scouting out photo locations and creating a schedule for the day and making sure we got our dream photos.
I also really appreciated how Torez makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera and suggestions natural poses so your photos end up looking candid and not staged.
Whether you’re booking an elopement, couples or individual photo session in California, Torez is your person!

My fiancé and I took engagement pictures with Torez and we had a great experience and would certainly recommend her again and again. We won our session on an Instagram contest and she was so easy to work with and coordinate. We settled on Carmel, she helped with outfits, location styling, posing, everything. She embraced our awkwardness and our photos turned out amazing — we get so many compliments on them. It was like working with an old friend. Thank you Torez.

"My boyfriend and I had Torez take our pictures at the beach and we couldn’t have been happier with how they turned out! It was our first time getting professional pictures done and we were both nervous so we worried that our nervousness would show in the pictures. This was not the case whatsoever! Torez made us both feel so comfortable and all while guiding us along the way. She was also incredibly patient throughout the whole photoshoot. The photos came back to us, edited, in less than 24 hours! Considering how eager we were to see how the pictures turned out, her timeliness was definitely a plus. I can’t wait to use her for all of our future photography needs!"

"Kellen and I loved our couples shoot with Torez. She made us feel comfortable from the start and the entire process was seamless from planning the logistics to receiving the photos. She had a beautiful vision and gave us helpful direction while still letting us be who we are. She is talented, accommodating, and a joy to work with! We will cherish these photos forever!"

"EVERY PHOTO WAS STUNNING AND EXACTLY WHAT WE WERE LOOKING FOR."

- Ashley and Antoine

I don't even know where to begin. We planned our trip from Kentucky to California for May. Due to unforeseen work circumstances we did not get to actually take our trip until September. Torez was so cooperative and kind, in dealing with our situation. Upon meeting her, she was just as kind in person. She really pays attention to details. Everything that I wanted for our anniversary shoot, she made it happen. She even had our favorite artist playing in the background to set the mood. We are already planning a trip back to take pictures with our children. Lets not even talk about the quality of the photos, amazing!!!

Torez accommodated us very last minute; we asked her on a Monday if she was available to shoot our elopement on Friday! Thankfully, she was available, and took some truly lovely photos of our intimate day. She was understanding of our personalities and captured us in a way that felt authentic -- not forced or unnatural by any means. And her prices were very reasonable for some truly outstanding work; if you are looking to get photos done at City Hall and wish to do it on a reasonable budget, Torez is a great choice! We can't thank her enough for capturing us so well on our special day.

Torez did a fantastic job shooting our engagement photos. My fiance and I are definitely camera shy and so we knew the importance of trusting and being comfortable with our photographer every step of the way. Torez was so genuine from the start, as she truly wanted to get to know US so she can curate an experience that would carry on past that session. She asked questions to get to know us better as a couple as well as did her research in terms of location, time of day, etc. Her turnaround time was quick and the photos turned out great - we found pictures that captured who we truly are and we couldn't be happier with the results! We were quick to post a sneak peak on Instagram as well because we were so excited :) Thank you, Torez!!

Torez photography did an amazing job capturing our surprise proposal, the pictures came out exactly like I imagined them. She’s very personable and really helped to make our day memorable. I 10/10 recommend

- Jacqueline & Josh

"Torez was very professional, warm, and friendly. She was a joy to work with. As someone who has absolutely NO idea what to do in front of a camera, Torez gave us a lot of notes on what to do with our movement. While we were fortunate enough to be winners of Torez's annual raffle for a free engagement photo session, we certainly would have paid had we not been winners - she's phenomenal. We really appreciate the great work she did."

"Very beautiful photos and a wonderful experience."
