• Welcome to the website of wedding photographer Saavedra Photography My mission is to empower people through photography to love themselves and confidently see the beauty that I see in them.

Joanne & Alex, Married! | Private ocean-side wedding in Sausalito, CA

When I first asked Joanne how she found out about me, she said, “[when I found] your blog and site… i not only got to see your beautiful work, but get to hear your voice through your writing and even follow along in your love story. it just seemed to me you were a genuine, warm person who took her work seriously and had a great eye for capturing moments – both candids and artistic poses. and part of that affinity seemed to come through your getting to know your subjects as people, not just customers… when it came to choosing someone who could capture that same joyful spirit and love that she had herself, and someone we would want to share in our small wedding it seemed like a perfect fit (: so honestly a lot of the choice probably has to do more with you, even though i do think your work is really beautiful.”

Joanne and Alex planned for their intimate wedding to be a time where they could gather all of their favorite people in the world to share in an evening of joy, wine, and good conversations. They held the wedding at a gorgeous private home in Sausalito, California, whose round and modern architectural details are heavily featured in the portraits. They organized a wine tasting competition that everyone really got into during the cocktail hour. After a paella dinner with sweeping sunset views of the city of San Francisco, guests were then invited down to the lower level where a fire pit and s’mores awaited. I chose a very story-telling approach to their wedding because there was no agenda, there weren’t a million things happening at once, it’s an honest to goodness beautiful union of two extremely amazing people who compliment each other perfectly. Please enjoy the photographs
