Watch this 90-second video to get a taste of what makes Tobin Photography (ahem, very) unique and special.

Hi, I’m Tobin of Tobin Photography. I love to capture people experiencing their most emotional life moments. Wedding photography, engagement, family and baby photography gives me a unique window into people’s lives.

I’ve had the honor of being a wedding photographer at some of the most wonderful destination weddings in Northern Northern England, Hawaii, Florida, and here in Northern California in Tahoe, Napa, Sonoma, Grass Valley, Nevada City, San Francisco Bay Area, and Sacramento.

Wedding Photographers in SacramentoFor years, I lived and worked out of Santa Barbara, California and I still continue to capture wedding there to this day. My favorite locations are the Fess Parker Doubletree Resort, Butterfly Beach, The Douglas Preserve, Bacara Resort, Figueroa Mountain House, Chase Palm Park, The Four Seasons Biltmore Resort. I’m available to capture your wedding at any of these, and more, like The Riviera Mansion, Canary Hotel, San Ysidro Ranch, The Mission, and more.

Now I live in Nevada City, California, which is just up the hill from Sacramento, and which enables me to photograph weddings in Lake Tahoe, including King’s Beach, Northstar, Heavenly, along with wine country, including Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, and the San Francisco Bay Area. Also, many Grass Valley and Nevada City venues are total gems. We love the Miner’s Foundry.

Wedding & Event Photographers for the Coast of California

From our time in Santa Barbara, we’ve been to so many beach weddings along the California Coast from Malibu to Mendocino County. California beach weddings are destination wedding locations for many people in North America. Carmel and Monterey offer some of the most stunning views and venues. They may certainly be on the more luxury-end of the spectrum, but are unsurpassed in their splendor. The Mendocino County redwoods or on the coast in the town of Mendocino, itself, offers amazing wedding venues.

Northern California Wedding Photographer Pricing

I want to let you know right up front that we are not the cheapest photographers around, but our ideal couples are those who are committed to having emotional, authentic and gorgeous photographs of their wedding – not just for themselves, but for their children and their grandchildren. I’ve lost count of the women who’ve told me over the years they regretted not hiring their first choice of photographer.  Ask yourself – in 20, or 50 years, what will be important: having photographs that touch and move us from your wedding, or that you saved a few hundred bucks? Our photography packages start at $3,650. If this is in your ballpark budget, then get in contact and we will send you some information that will provide you with a rich perspective on our work, our style, and what you can expect in working with Tobin Photography.
