My name is Tina Araquistain, and I'm an award winning wedding & engagement photographer based in the San Francisco Bay Area.
My work has been displayed in shows and galleries in the San Francisco Bay area and San Jose.
What inspires me? Keeping up with the latest in weddings, pouring over bridal magazines, going to bridal shows, finding out what styles are in, and attending ongoing classes and workshops as technology and photography editing styles change. I love art and enjoy creating digital art when I'm not working on photography or creating websites.
Being an active participant in your wedding, I want to know as much as I can about your very special day. All the details about your venue are paramount so that I may know the best spots to take your very special photos of just the two of you, your wedding party, and any formals requested.
Getting to know the couple prior to the wedding day is very important so that the couple is relaxed in front of the camera and we are all familiar with each other.
Learning how a couple relates to each other is actually very helpful to me, as your photographer. This is why I include your ENGAGEMENT SESSION as part of your wedding package. The engagement shoot is a great way to get to know each other. It's also a way for me, your photographer, to get to know your styles and preferences. If a couple has a wedding website, a Pinterest board, or other social sites I would love to see it. It helps me tremendously as I really get an idea and stye sense of the couple, especially of the bride!
I love LOVE, and creating beautiful photos that will be cherished for generations is a my passion!
It would be my pleasure to be a part of your very special day and capture all the beautiful moments for you to cherish a lifetime.
