The theme for the wedding was all things Santa Cruz! How lovely to see apples and postcards decorate the sign-in and gift tables. As you many know, Santa Cruz is known for it’s apple orchards, the Boardwalk and our stunning coastline.

It was great to meet Santa Cruz local viticulturist Prudy Foxx and photograph her for Wine & Spirits Magazine April 2015 issue!

We met in February and she gave me a little tour of a couple of vineyards in the Santa Cruz mountains. Such beauty in the Corralitos hills! I’ve photographed a few vineyard weddings in this area. Little did I know this region is known for Pinot Noir, my favorite wine.

It’s time to schedule your high school senior portrait session!

I’m currently booking senior portrait sessions in Santa Cruz for the high school class of 2015 and 2016. Students from all over northern California  including Pleasanton, Livermore, Palo Alto, Sunnyvale and Oakland have chosen Santa Cruz for their beach portrait session.

senior portrait session

One of my recent favorite sessions was with this young lady who drove all the way from the central valley to have her senior portrait session with me at Wilder Ranch and Natural Bridges. She also booked a hair & makeup session with Mickie from www.mbymickie.com so she would look and feel her very best in front of my camera. I highly recommend this to all young ladies!

I really enjoy working with teenagers and making their senior portrait session fun and memorable. I always try to get to know my seniors before the session by sending them a check list of possible locations and different looks for their senior portrait session. I also send information on what to wear, props to bring and answer any of their questions. For more information on my senior portrait sessions, call Rebecca 831-325-4183 or email me rebstark@me.com

Are you planning to elope in Santa Cruz?

If you and your fiance are considering an intimate wedding ceremony with just the two of you, or a few special guests, perhaps you have considered eloping. Elopements are becoming more and more popular.

All you need to elope is a partner, a marriage license, a wedding officiant and a photographer! At Rebecca Stark Photography, we photograph large and small wedding ceremonies and elopements all over Northern California.

Today I’m heading south to photograph an elopement in Cambria. Many people from all over the world choose the central coast for their destination wedding or elopement. One of the reasons is the beauty of the coastline and the mild year round temperatures. Here are a few photos from an elopement I photographed last fall at the Santa Cruz Courthouse. We hit a couple of my favorite portrait spots after the ceremony.

If you are planning to elope in Santa Cruz, Monterey, Carmel, Big Sur or anywhere in Northern California, Give me a call! 831-325-4183
