We couldn't have asked for a better wedding photographer for our destination wedding. We found Randi through another... photographer referral for our wedding in Sayulita, Mexico. She was super communicative and really wanted to understand our needs and the moments that were important for us to capture throughout our day. We really wanted scenic photos from around that town and Randi delivered. Not only did she get into town early and explore great places to take pictures, but she captured the true beauty of the town in an organic and non-commercial way. She even arranged to let us do our "engagement" photos the day before since we were unable to schedule before we got down there.On top of the amazing photos that we received (and bonus sneak peak video!) , it was lovely having Randi with us throughout the day. My husband and I are both very awkward when it comes to posing for pictures, however, Randi made us feel so comfortable and at ease, rather than posed. She really caught organic moments, because she felt like a friend that would have been invited to the wedding anyways. Not to mention it was VERY hot that day and Randi was good about keeping things light hearted and positive given how miserable it could have been.HIGHLY recommend Randi, you can't go wrong!read more

Randi captured our special day in ways we couldn’t have even imagined! 💕 She was incredibly warm and down to... earth, and she was reasonably priced. She offered to scout the area ahead of time and made sure we had GORGEOUS backdrops to choose from! Her style and prompting allowed for very comfortable, natural looking photos - never stiff or staged. Our shoot was totally JAW-DROPPING and MAGAZINE-WORTHY! Randi was everything we had hoped for in an elopement photographer. You will not be sorry if you choose her!read more

My husband and I had such a pleasant experience working with Randi. We eloped in Hawaii and are from the northwest.... Randi’s photography is timeless and stunning to say the least. From the start she was very responsive with getting back to us which we appreciated. On our wedding day, we adventured around getting our photos taken and listening to music. The whole process felt very relaxing and not staged. We felt like it was all about us and that’s what we’ll always remember. She wanted us to just be ourselves and I think that truly helped just being in the moment. We highly recommend Randi! You won’t be disappointed!read more

Randi was incredible to work with. She is kind, warm, authentic, creative, and made the process of planning an... elopement a breeze (even from 4000+ miles away). We had never been to Hawaii before and she was very informative and helpful with every aspect of the trip. Her photography speaks for itself, and my husband and I could not be more pleased with her work. I would not hesitate to use Randi for any special occasion.read more

Her work is beautiful! Found her on yelp and it was the best decision I made when it came to our elopement. Our family... of three is very camera shy and she made us feel so comfortable. The photos were way better than I imagined, like whoa? That’s us, lol. I would definitely recommend her.read more

Randi is incredibly talented. She captures that very moment and brings out the story and beauty of it. I first found... her in 2017 for my then boyfriend’s homecoming and I almost forgot she was there as she sneakily captured the joy of that moment, naturally I booked her for our engagement shoot, boudoir in Paris and more recently our son’s 1 year photos. We always look back and wished we booked her for our wedding too. Every session with her was amazing. She made us feel so comfortable, brought out this confidence in us in front of the camera and caught the beauty of our surroundings and the very emotion of each session. Every photo is so intricately detailed, with the sun and wind hitting all the right spots even if it wasn’t the most beautiful day. My home is decorated with Randi’s pieces. She’s definitely a photographer who puts in her heart and soul into her work, delivers the most incredible photos and one where you can just be you and still not have that double chin or weird angle show up in your photos. If I could sum it all up I’d say I wish I could pack Randi with me wherever I go so I can have her photograph every family session and big events in our lives.read more

We got married in June 2019 and had Randi as our photographer for the whole event. From private vows to the ceremony to... the reception, Randi made us feel comfortable and natural. Both my husband and I are camera shy, but with Randi we didn’t feel inauthentic. She is so sweet and was open to all of our ideas, she captured the most candid moments and I can’t wait to work with her again when we do our vow renewals. The photo quality was impeccable, she captured the view of the ocean behind us as perfectly and edited the photos really nicely. We did our private vows at the beach and there were some people in the photos but she was able to edit them out and made it look like we had the whole (public) beach to ourselves! The moments she captured will forever be cherished by my husband and I, as well as all of our family and friends. She is priceless, and she is worth every penny! Thank you again for everything, I think it’s so important to choose a photographer that fits your needs and to not under budget for your photographer. We checked out Randi’s instagram and website before we finalized payment, and we are so happy.read more

Randi was THE BEST. My husband and I traveled to HI for our honeymoon and didn't know anything about Maui, but she took... us to THE BEST spots, and just let us enjoy those moments together while she documented it. She was quick on her feet and super personable. Her pricing is reasonable and we not only got THE MOST DREAMY PHOTOS EVER in one of our favorite places, but we also got some of the best memories together from our photo session with Randi. She spent a lot of time emailing me, asking me questions, and planning the perfect shoot for us, because she cares about making each session unique to her couples. My husband and I couldn't be happier with Randi. Do yourself a favor and BOOK HER!read more

I seriously can’t say enough great things about Randi! She was the perfect photographer to capture our elopement.... From the very beginning she was always available to answer any questions I had. Having to plan our day from another state I thought would be very difficult but she was there to help us choose the perfect vendors and gorgeous locations. When the day came I was so anxious, but she made us feel so comfortable and relaxed and our photos came out so beautifully. My husband and I had never taken any professional photos before but she had a way of directing us to make us let loose and not look awkward. We were provided with a sneak peek of our day so quickly to be able to share with our loved ones. Those few photos alone would already have been worth booking Randi. Her photos are seriously so stunning! We are SO in love with our wedding gallery and we are SO thankful to have had chosen Randi as our photographer. We will definitely be choosing her again in the future for an anniversary shoot.read more

We couldn't have asked for a better person to spend our elopement with! Randi went above and beyond to help us find a... location, and was open for anything. We ended up on a strenuous, but gorgeous hike on Maui, with no plans to reach the top - however once we were in it, we couldn't resist going all the way. Camera equipment and all, Randi was ready for the climb and didn't skip a beat. She delivered a beautiful gallery that we will treasure forever, along with the memories we have with her on this amazing day! Thank you Randi!read more

Randi was so wonderful to work with. My husband and I are not naturals at taking pictures and Randi was able to capture... some great shots of our elopement! She was so easy to work with and helped direct us in a way to give natural looking and not awkward photos. I definitely recommend Randi to capture your important day, you will not be disappointed with the results!read more

I have so much love for Randi and we had a blast hanging out with her during our elopement! We couldn't have asked for... a better photographer to capture our day and marry us! Our photo's came out better than we could have ever expected. Randi was so easy to work with and was helpful every step of the way. She helped with planning, provided recommendations (this was our first time to Hawaii!), timeline's, etc. If you are eloping in Hawaii, Randi should be your first choice, this lady has so much talent. Thank you so much!read more

Randi is a truly amazing and talented photographer! Not only she captured our Hawaii elopement moments in a way we... didn't even expect (mostly due to the weather not being on our side during our day), it was also very enjoyable and easy to work with her. We loved the way she captured our emotions, how she caught all the little moments and details and made us feel and look so effortless and happy. The quality of the photos was great!Besides her professional skills, Randi also has a wonderful personality. She is so friendly, down to earth and funny. She made us feel very comfortable during the photo session process, despite us being very camera shy. From the first time I contacted her, she showed so much care and a willingness to help with our elopement planning process. She always found time to answer all my questions and shared detailed suggestions and tips. We really appreciated her support, as we were planning our elopement from the other part of the world and had a very limited knowledge about potential locations, vendors etc.We couldn't be more thankful to Randi for the wonderful job she did and we really recommend her to anyone!read more

Randi is so great to work with!! Right from the get-go, she was so helpful with everything. We had never been to Hawaii... before and had no idea where would be a good place for a shoot. She gave a couple of ideas based on the criteria we wanted to meet, and we ended up with the PERFECT location. She also was so accommodating with our constant back & forth changes of plans. We originally had a couple's shoot booked, but ended up lengthening it to include a bunch of family shots with our whole group. Her patience with our lack of photoshoot experience was super appreciated! She made everything feel super relaxed & comfortable.Randi & her husband (who had the second camera) just made the whole shoot great and we all had a blast, including our toddler. We loved her unique eye and the outcome of the gallery was awesome. The sneak peeks were so exciting, and she delivered the rest of the gallery in the time-frame as quoted. Overall a great bang for your buck! This has been such a fantastic way to re-live our Hawaiian adventure, and I am so happy we hired Randi to capture it for us. I catch myself staring at my computer background daily, seeing our dreamy photos from this shoot!! Would highly recommend and would definitely hire her again 🙂read more

Collected from Wedding Wire, The Knot, and Facebook.

 Randi was THE MOST amazing photographer to work with. She and her assistant photographer were so professional from start to finish. I really appreciated how well Randi got to know us before our big day. She was very organized and not only sent out a detailed questionnaire, but also spent time to chat with me so that she could really get the sense of who my then fiancé and I were, and also what we wanted on our big day. Throughout the entire wedding day, Randi and her assistant were in the background taking pictures, very candid ones, which I loved. It was almost as if she wasn’t there and I could focus on getting ready. During the ceremony it was the same thing, she moved in and out of the crowd without being distracting and captured so many beautiful moments from our ceremony! She even handled our large families well! Especially since I know Randi prefers smaller weddings/Elopements she made it seem easy! When she took us out into the desert so my husband and I could get our pictures, she made us feel so comfortable. My husband was nervous as he hates getting his picture taken, but Randi was able to put him at ease and have him go with the flow! Looking back at my pictures I cry seeing how ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL they are and how precious those moments were for my husband and I. Like most people, I can be so picky about pictures of me, but I can honestly say out of Randi’s finished product, I couldn’t find one I disliked. She is TALENTED. Out of all of the photographers I researched, Randi was a no brainer for me. She exceeded all other in uniqueness, quality and of course talent. She somehow manages to capture and convey the joy two people are feeling in all of her pictures. I strongly recommend Randi to anyone searching for a wedding photographer. Thank you again Randi for our gorgeous photos!!!! You are incredible.

CHRISTIAN + MICHELLE – JOSHUA TREE WEDDING

There aren’t words, only deep feelings of joy and gratitude for Randi and how she perfectly captured our wedding. She captured everyone’s personalities, she caught all the little moments, and most of all she captured all the love. I’ve pretty much cried at least 5 times since seeing just a few of the photos so far. Girl you’re amazing!

NATALIE + PATRICK – DESTINATION WEDDING

I don’t know where to begin! Randi is AMAZING! She has such a big heart and is so easy to get along with! From the beginning, she was very responsive and helpful. She offered any information and help she could give and took the time to help answer any questions we had. We shot our elopement in Yosemite and could not have asked for anything more! We were both nervous for the elopement and being in front of a camera, but Randi made the session very comfortable and relaxing and was able to capture beautiful images full of all sorts of emotion! Thank you so much Randi! We are forever grateful for what you have given us!

YEN + JAMES – YOSEMITE ELOPEMENT

LOVE LOVE LOVE!! I would give her more stars if I could. During the wedding photographer search, I was actually set on another photographer, but he had horrible communication. So even though I was in talks with him, I kept looking. So I was scrolling through Instagram, then I saw Randi’s pictures and cancelled with the other photographer immediately. Her pictures were far better in quality and I loved her style. Her pictures aren’t posed and stiff. One major factor in choosing Randi was her editing style. A lot of other photographers had over-brighten photos that hurt my eyes. I didn’t want to look at photos that were so bright and fake happy looking. Instead, she captures pictures in candid moments that evoke so much emotion and intimacy. I do not like having my picture taken, but Randi made me feel so comfortable and even in the times I was awkward, she was able to capture the glimpses of realness. I get so many compliments on our engagement photos, and definitely have gotten some friends copying our photos. We felt that Randi knew exactly what we wanted, almost like she was in our heads. I don’t think I was too clear with my description of what I wanted, yet she nailed it. I would rate my wedding as okay, only because Randi saved it. It was a scorching 100F at 5pm and 90F at 9pm, with a slew of wedding day mishaps. I had family messing up our day-of schedule, so we lost time and daylight for our couple pictures. BUT, I don’t know how she did it, Randi managed to get so many photos of us that we LOVE. I was expecting only about 5 good ones because of the time limit, but I got at good amount. I got so many that I can’t choose which ones to blow up onto a canvas. A few of my favorite photos are ones she captured of my family. One of my absolute favorites is of my dad. It is a picture of my dad walking me down the aisle and looking at my husband. I can see all the love and emotion he had that moment/day. I love scrolling through my online wedding album because I get to re-live the day, but only the good/best things are there. I can forget about the stresses and just enjoy how the wedding looked to guests. The guests loved it and I wanted to see it through their lens. Lastly, Randi is SUPER generous with her time. We had booked her for a full day shoot, but she definitely went overtime. I forget the exact amount of time but definitely over 12 hours. She wanted to make sure I got all the photos I wanted, so she even strapped on her camera AFTER she put it away in order to get a last minute photo with my ring bearer. She is ridiculously talented and has a big heart for her clients. You can definitely tell she cares about her clients and wants everything for them.

ELAINE + KEVIN – ETHEREAL OPEN AIR RESORT WEDDING

Before I was even engaged I knew I wanted Randi as my wedding photographer. I have been a fan of her work for years. That’s why she was the first vendor we booked when we got engaged. I emailed her asking for a quote. She met me for coffee the next week and we discussed everything. From the theme & style of the wedding; to having a second shooter. She was extremely helpful in planning the early stages of our wedding with sending me different venues and ideas for the special day! She quoted us a price that I could not refuse and how often does a girl get her favorite photographer to do their wedding. ALSOOOO the price included a free engagement session. Which wasnt just in some park. We drove up to Palomar Mountain- which is where we got engaged by the way- And it was spectacular. We asked her if we could do some pictures in my husbands car – 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee – and she totally went with it. Those pictures are some of my hubbys favorite. Which by the way — some men are really reasonable when it comes to taking pictures. Some are not. My husband is the latter. And Randi handled him like a champ! She asked him to tell stories of us and it kinda got him a little bit more comfortable in front of camera. Even though we were covered in a cloud of mosquitoes, we had alot of fun. Randi was such a great emotional support as well. Because we ended postponing our wedding for another 6 months. And she made our new date a priority. Even a few weeks out she was checking in with me and sending me a “Wedding Day Questionnaire” which was super helpful logistically. The day of – Randi was STELLAR!! She showed up an hour earlier than I asked her to be and she like made the venue owner show her around and scope out all the best spots. She even found spots the venue has never used before which we really special to us. She was the reason why we where ahead of schedule that day. SHE WORKS FANTASTICALLY FAST! She maneuvered our bridal party & family expertly. That way we had tons of time for our couple shoot that was on the freaking mountain top she found with the most perfect lighting. Also we all got to travel on go-karts to the spot that was really fun and kinda of adventurous. Which is exactly what you wanna be on your wedding day, right?!! She stayed through the entire reception which was awesome because she captured amazing night photography of our guests doing their best dance moves!. She even sent us a sneak peak of the wedding album the next day and that we cherished until she sent us the full wedding album. WHICH I DIDNT STOP LOOKING AT!! It’s three months later and I still find myself staring at them. THEY ARE BETTER THAN WHAT WE COULD HAVE IMAGINED!! My husbands a teacher and whenever he shows his high school students our pictures – They ask if we are models? Which makes me laugh. She uses this picture gallery website which is very user friendly. That even our grandparents figured it out. BOTTOM LINE!! You want Randi capturing these beautiful moments on your special day! You wont regret having her on your team! Actually you need someone like Randi on your team of vendors. Cause she will always be rooting not only for your wedding day but also for your marriage!

SADIE + JAS – SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA WEDDING

Randi was a fantastic photographer. She was able to take our engagement pictures last minute and somehow found time to scope out locations in advance. She made us feel comfortable and relaxed during the photo shoot. It was obvious that Randi knew what she was doing and she was able capture the beautiful sunset lighting that we wanted. Her photos are amazing and we are proud to use them for our save the dates and wedding decor! Randi is a phenomenal photographer and will go out of her way to make your experience and photos perfect. You will NOT be disappointed.

MEGAN H. – ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY

We were incredibly lucky to have found Randi for our wedding. She was wonderful at communicating leading up to the day, providing helpful information and going above and beyond with helpful suggestions on all things nuptial. Randi is extremely professional and reliable– she’s methodical, punctual and takes her clients seriously– it was great to find someone so dependable. She both listened to our ideas and offered her own excellent ones. She has a gift for helping you relax and find natural looking poses, and worked with all the challenges of natural lighting really well. Our photos exceeded our expectations and really captured the beauty of the landscape, tender moments with family, and will be a perfect keepsake for the day. We couldn’t recommend Randi more highly!

MONIQUE + DAN – ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY

Randi was amazing!! I snatched her about a month after my husband deployed. During the whole time he was gone we kept in touch regarding the ever changing homecoming date. She kept several days open for me as she knows deployment homecoming dates can change at a moments notice. A couple hours before homecoming Randi took pictures of me and my friends as we patiently waited out in the parking lots (taking the edge off with some bubbly) and also in the flight hanger. She was fun and energetic and captured some great moments. As I ran to my husband when he finally landed she took absolutely amazing photos and was so sneaky I didn’t even know she was there. These are moments I will remember forever and hiring Randi was the best decision. As a fellow military spouse she knew exactly what we were looking for. She did not rush us and didn’t leave until we took ever picture we could think of! Her photography skills are amazing and I highly recommend Randi for any event!

NATALIE N. – MILITARY HOMECOMING PHOTOGRAPHY

Randi was a wonderful photographer! My husband and I wanted some couples shots and she worked with us to find a great location and time that worked for us all. She made sure she was familiar with the area and let us know the best time for golden hour and fewer tourists. Her shots are so gorgeous! She didn’t just get good angles of us, which she did, and she didn’t just compose her shots beautifully. She captured the love and humor my husband and I share. The photo shoot was so relaxed and comfortable and she practically disappeared into the background for much of it. And yet she captured these beautiful, intimate moments between us. Shared looks, the way we connect and touch even when we look different directions. And while I do not recommend having your kids at a couples shoot, our kids had to come to ours (babysitting fail) and she even captured some of the most beautiful portraits of my girls. These are the absolute best photos of my family ever! The only thing I regret is not being able to hire her 11 years ago for our wedding.
