The 8 Best Engagement Photographers in Fresno, CA

If you’re seeking a talented artist to tell your love story, we’ve got you covered with our list of the most noteworthy Fresno engagement photographers. As a bonus, many of them are happy to travel, so if you have some scenic vista in Yosemite that you need in your portraits, they’ve got you covered! 

1. Erica Houck

Erica is a visionary and specialist in love — focusing on Fresno engagement photography, as well as elopements and weddings in the stunning Yosemite National Park. Her photographs are free-spirited and fueled by an essence of adventure, a combination of photojournalistic and editorial that we absolutely adore.

If you aren’t the adventurous type, never fear, as Erica herself says, “I want to photograph in places that hold the most meaning to you, whether that’s on a mountain top or in your backyard… When you look back on your wedding day 50 years from now, I want you to still feel the same heart fluttery feelings you felt from your first ‘I love yous’ to your forever ‘I dos.’” Her photographs stand as a testament to that sentiment — they make even the casual observer feel stirrings of emotion and tenderness.

2. Amber Verdugo Photography

Perfectly situated at the South Gate of Yosemite, Amber captures gorgeous photos of engagements, elopements, and intimate weddings in and around the national park and Fresno. She is passionate about the beauty of the area.

According to Amber, “The outdoors are my escape on any given day. I crave wind blown hair and straying off the beaten path. The sight of the sun setting fire to the sky makes my heart skip a beat… For me, photography got me to where I am. It is the outlet that helps uncover my passion for life. Love is what drives me.” If you are the type to wander off on an adventure, or even if you just want to relax in your home and have the story of your love told in a laid-back, sentimental way, Amber is your go-to photographer.

After studying graphic design at Fresno State, Sam found her true calling in photography. In her own words, “I am an artist at heart and getting inspired to create or make a change is something that forever haunts me. I also love knowledge.

If you are planning an elopement or simply want epic photos of you and your love in the landscapes around the area, give Sadie a call. According to her, “I am also obsessed with LOVE and everyone’s love story. I genuinely feel so much joy watching my couples be so dang cute in front of my camera.
