Samantha is our newest associate photographer and loves photographing families and couples. She has been well immersed in our training to become an AGS associate so she can deliver an elevated experience for more couples.

Victoria is one of our talented Associate photographers. She has been on our team for three seasons and is our main second photographer at our weddings. She’s a true artist and brings such a calming experience to our couples during her sessions.

I shot my first elopement at 16. I was in high school, finding my passion. I fell in love with it from that day forward!
Went to Marywood University and got a Bachelors Degree in fine art photography. I honed my film skills and fell in love with classic portraiture.
I graduated! AGS Photo Art was born in PA. We started photographing both internationally and domestically.
I met the love of my life, Jonathan.
I became bi-coastal and moved to Carmel, CA.
I was diagnosed with eye cancer. I could no longer photograph out of my left eye and taught myself how to photograph with my right. The experience made me realize how blessed I am to do what I do. I feel like I was put on this earth to tell stories.
AGS Photo Art found our home at the Cottage in Carmel Valley. This was a dream come true and we love meeting our clients in person.
We opened up the doors to Suite Q studio, where we photograph bridal boudoir and bridal portraits. It’s also open to our community to grow and create. We love giving back to our community.
I had my first baby! His name is Tiger and he is furry, ferocious and as curly as can be! And he loves fish sticks!
We photograph 25+ weddings and 100+ sessions per year and our team has grown to 7 members. We've expanded our educational branch and teach photographers how to grow a sustainable business and follow their dreams.
Film makes us take in the moment and think before we click the shutter button, capturing raw emotions and organic moments.
Our style is timeless, organic, and in-the-moment. Instead of posing couples, I direct them and put them in natural situations. That way, I can see what blossoms, capturing their unique personality and connection.
Paying it Forward
Our couples are timeless lovers who value preserving their memories.
They cherish their albums and prints, and understand that memories are made to be revisited in the every day.
Sound like you? Let's talk!
Our sweet, historic office is found in the heart of Carmel Valley. This little cottage is where we design and build our clients beautiful heirlooms, where we have in-person client consultations and where you can find our team most days of the week.
Our studio is our intimate, private photography studio where we photograph stunning bridal portraits and fine art boudoir for our couples to enhance their wedding experience.
It's my goal to help you grow your business, earn more money, and spend more time the way you want. As a seasoned entrepreneur and photographer, I can save you a lot of time and money by teaching you what I’ve learned from my 15+ years in business. Grab a cup of coffee, and let’s get started!
