I’m here to be more than just your elopement photographer

I’m here to be your dress holder, location scouter,

story-teller, and adventure buddy

When you book with me you get more than just a photographer– you get a travel junkie, adventure-loving, ramen-obsessed girl with a camera here to tell your story! When I’m not on the road traveling, I’m at home snuggling my 2 adorable rescue cats and talking to them like they’re my actual children (who else does this with their pets!?)

 

I LOVE being outdoors, especially in the forest/mountains! Nothing feels more peaceful than escaping to the woods and cozying up in a little cabin away from city life for a while. This is partially what drew me to adventurous wedding/elopement photography– nothing makes me happier than exploring epic places with my fellow adventurous souls, and getting to capture their love stories makes what I do the best freaking thing in the world!!

 

My approach to photography is simple– I want to capture your love in whatever way is genuine to you. Whether than means ditching the traditional wedding route and saying ‘I do’ on a mountain top or in the middle of the forest, I will be there to document your adventure. Come to me as you are and I will tell your story.  To me, love has no boundaries or rules so where there is love, I will be there.

Let's get real
If you're looking for a photographer that is just going to show up, pose you in front of their camera and go home then we might not be the best fit

The relationship I create with my couples is extremely important to me and is what allows me to capture all of the silly, candid and intimate moments between you guys! I wanna get to know all about you two but I think it’s important you get to know me as well so here’s a bit of my story.

I grew up in San Diego but my heart belongs in the woods

Yup– you wouldn’t think I grew up in sunny San Diego, but my soul truly belongs in the forest and in the mountains. Nothing makes my heart quite as happy as foggy mornings in the woods or glowing orange/pink sunsets in the mountains! I absolutely love exploring national parks all over the country but if I had to pick my favorites would have to be Mount Rainier and Sequoia (who can really choose am I right??) Visiting every national park is definitely on my bucket list!

This is me and my boo! We've been together for 4 and a half years and our story is pretty cheesy

We met freshman year of college at Boston University as chemistry lab partners! After spending hours on lab reports together and finding other excuses to hang out we became inseparable and the rest is history! We both finally graduated last year with degrees in Mechanical Engineering (crazy I know!) and while I’m an engineer-turned-photographer, Oleg is a bad ass engineer and works at a company that builds rockets (there’s never a subtle way to say explain that… haha)

After we graduated we left the brutal Boston winters for sunny California!

We live in Los Angeles together now with our two fur babies, General Sherman and Sequoia and we’re way too proud cat parents haha. There’s absolutely nothing we love more than traveling together! When we were in college we studied abroad in New Zealand and then traveled all around Southeast Asia afterwards. We never stop talking about our adventures from that time and we’re always planning our next epic trip!

These are our cutie kittens General Sherman and Sequoia, and yes I'm obsessed with them

Funny story about how we ended up with two cats. A couple of years ago we took a road trip up to Sequoia National Park. We were staying at an airbnb right outside the park in Three Rivers and one night out of nowhere these tiny little kittens the size of my hand came crawling into our backyard! We waited to see if their mom would show up but when she didn’t we decided to take them in! And hence the names Sequoia (obviously named about the park) and General Sherman named after the General Sherman Tree!

Some fun facts about me!

+ Sabrina Kaye is actually my real first and last name. A lot of people think Kaye is my middle name or a pseudo name that I just made up!

 

+ I’ve been to 23 countries and counting! I can never pick an absolute favorite but a few of my favorites are New Zealand, Iceland, Italy, The Netherlands, and Thailand!

 

+ I’m half Bolivian on my mom’s side!

 

+ I’m obsessed with interior design, planning road trips, hanging out at the beach, eating yummy food, traveling around the world and of course taking photos of adorable couples!

Before I became a wedding photographer I loved taking landscape photos on my iPhone

You gotta start somewhere right? It never crossed my mind to turn photography into my job but once I started photographing couples I completely fell in love with every aspect of it! It still feels so wild to me that I get to photograph rad couples and travel the world for my job but I feel so lucky every single day! I absolutely love becoming friends with all my couples and being a part of so many special moments! I wanna know all about you and your story so come say hey and let’s make some memories!

We love to travel and have been exploring together for years

Ever since our first trip to Canada together, we've been exploring all over the world. There's absolutely nothing we love more than traveling together! When we were in college we studied abroad in New Zealand and then traveled all around Southeast Asia afterwards. We never stop talking about our adventures from that time and we're always planning our next epic trip!

  5. I’VE FLOWN TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD TO DOCUMENT LOVE SO THERE’S NOWHERE I WON’T GO TO BE A PART OF YOUR DAY

Big Sur Forest Elopement
Naomi & Luke
"I could not recommend Sabrina enough! Sabrina photographed our intimate elopement ceremony in Big Sur, CA. Booking a photographer overseas is a daunting task but after seeing Sabrina’s work on Instagram I was sure she would be perfect, she was incredibly helpful throughout the entire planning process and really put our minds at ease. On the day, Sabrina was punctual, professional and welcoming, it really did feel like meeting an old friend and made us both feel comfortable in front of the camera. The photos we received back blew us both away and we are so glad we will have them to cherish for the rest of our lives. Thank you Sabrina!"

Yosemite Elopement at Taft Glacier Point

"Sabrina photographed our intimate wedding in Yosemite in September and it was honestly magical. From the start, communication was quick and easy and she was available to answer any and all questions. Leading up to our big day she sent out a booklet with helpful information (and some other goodies) so we knew what to expect and were prepared for the day. She makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera and will guide you if needed. Everything turned out so perfectly and the photos are incredible! My husband and I are seriously blown away by how everything turned out and we can't thank her enough!!"

"Sabrina photographed our sunrise elopement in Yosemite National Park honestly did such a great job! From getting up in the middle of the night (to arrive in time for the sunrise), to hanging around all day to do a sunset shoot as well, we couldn’t have asked for more! The photos were beyond what we could have hoped for and being able to share such beautiful images with family and friends back home was great and made them feel less like they missed out on our elopement day. We found Sabrina when I saw a photograph of hers on Instagram and I instantly knew she had to be our photographer. I wasn’t wrong! Thank you so much, the story our photos tell mean the world to us both!"

laid back sunrise engagement session at tunnel view in Yosemite National Park
Kamele & Christian
"Sabrina shot our engagement photo sesh in Yosemite National Park and let me tell you IT WAS A DREAM!!! She was so easy to work with as for helping us pick a date, where to meet and when I was struggling to find an outfit for the pictures! She also is very quick to respond regarding any questions that may arise! During our shoot, nothing seemed forced or awkward, everything flowed and it was very natural and comfortable as well. Let me tell you though.... OUR PICTURES ARE SERIOUSLY BOMB!!!! She did such an amazing job capturing our love! I can’t wait to show them off to everyone and also look back at this happy moment in our engagement! Thank you Sabrina!"
