1. Abbey Anderson

Abbey Anderson loves what she does and that love is evident in her work. Her brand portraits are remarkable, exuding color, creativity, and playfulness.

Her signature style involves using photo stacking, bold color combos, and fashion poses to catch the viewer’s attention and hold it.

2. Permanent Glimpse

A Sacramento editorial photographer with a love of people, Marie honed her talent for fashion photography as a teenager. She began to experiment with light and film, having taken inspiration from film and magazines. And while she uses digital now, you can see the refinement that only experience brings in her work today. As a portrait artist she has a fashion-forward flair. This helps her clients select flattering clothes that fit the vibe of the shoot. She also includes professional makeup with her packages for that camera-ready look. Her style is perfect for brands and people who know who they are and want that to be perfectly encapsulated in a photo.

3. Salgu Wissmath

Salgu Wissmath is a frequent contributor to The New York Times and the San Francisco Chronicle. They have also published in a range of other media, including the Wall Street Journal and HuffPost. Their documentary style is the perfect fit for visual storytelling — they don’t contrive photos, they make compelling images when the subject, light, and intention of the story intersect. Finding the story at the moment and allowing it to unfold without direction is Salgu’s specialty — getting them the notice they deserve.

4. Ryan Angel Meza

Published Sacramento editorial photographer Ryan Angel Meza is a regular contributor to Sacramento Magazine. Plus, his other visual stories can be found in the Wall Street Journal and Comstock Magazine. Currently, he is working with organizations and brands who need a cohesive brand identity and the images to tell the story of who they are. In addition to his bachelor’s degree in photography, his years of experience have taught him the finer points of the art. In fact, his style is flexible — gorgeous natural light studio portraits, outdoor environmental portraits with a subtle strobe, and fully candid photojournalistic style shots are just a few of his signature looks.

5. Susan Yee 

With almost 20 years of experience as a wedding photographer, its safe to say Susan Yee loves both the act of documenting love and the artistic outlet photography provides. While she still works with couples on their big day, Susan has also built a thriving portrait and editorial client base. In fact, her work has appeared in Sunset Magazine and Sacramento Magazine, among others. Her style varies with her subject — airy and dreamy for brides and expectant mothers, bright and bold colors for creative entrepreneurs, and casual boho lifestyle shots for brands in the health and wellness space.

6. Audrey Perez

Sometimes you need completely polished photos of yourself. And when you do, call Audrey Perez. While she mainly specializes in taking the award out of senior portraits and capturing the beauty of a teens transition into adulthood, she is also a talented portrait artist and wedding photographer.

8. Luke is the Blacksheep

Luke is one of the few Sacramento editorial photographers on this list who is self-taught.

10. Candace Clark

Candace Clark is a storyteller. She adeptly tells the stories of moments both monumental and everyday — the day two hearts pledge to love each other for life, the day a family brings their newborn home, and a casual day in the lives of children. A true artist, she subtly guides her subjects into flattering poses while allowing them to the center of their stories. She also does fashion commissions, focusing on the elegant drape of fabric or a dramatically crafted hairstyle. No matter what she turns her camera towards, you can be sure the end result will be pure beauty.
