Monterey Wedding Photographer

Hey, everyone! My name is Dana and I am a Monterey wedding photographer who serves all California couples. I love getting to serve all couples who value wedding photography. It’s important to them to spend time with friends and family on the wedding day and have all the moments captured. From the details to those on the dance floor! After four years in business, I am so excited to be spending it here in Monterey and love that Desiree and Gabe were one of my couples. I was not able to personally photograph this wedding, but my associate Tiffany Michelle was the photographer for this event.

Desiree and Gabe

These two found me online back in late 2021 and although I knew I was not going to be able to photograph their wedding, I still wanted to serve them. I knew that I could give them an incredible experience. It was during our phone call that we hit it off perfectly. I was still going to photograph their engagement session, and Tiffany would be the one to cover their wedding day.

These two met in High School back in 2010 and even though Desiree had a boyfriend, Gabe would joke around that one day she was going to be his girlfriend. Better yet, she became his wife! After becoming official, they were inseparable. They both went to the same college, graduated, and off to work they went. Des being a healthcare worker and Gabe working for the PD in town. Through it all, they supported and encouraged each other to live out their dreams.

Now here they are, with twins, owning a home, and are now husband and wife! It’s such an incredible story that high school sweat-hearts become one forever!

Leal is one beautiful venue and I am so excited for Des and Gabe for choosing such a beautiful place to get married. They were surrounded by their close friends and families. Plus, this venue includes most of it’s vendors, which makes the planning process easy for so many couples!

There is a wedding here I am booked for in the future, and cannot wait to do so. Until then, I am excited to share some of my favorites from Des and Gabe’s Wedding Day

    Gabs and Desi,
    Yours was the most beautiful wedding I think I’ve ever been to. Everything detail was meticulously planned!
    Desi you were a stunning Bride – right out of a Princess Fairy Tale, the kind where she marries her Prince Charming – our Beloved Gabe!
    Thank you so very much for sharing such a momentous, and beautiful memory with us! It’s a memory that will remain with us forever! May you both (and your beautiful twins) be Blessed for the rest of your lives, I, (we), love the four of you more than you will ever know!
    Blessings and never-ending Love,
    Nina Maria & Pete Gnosca
