Telling Love Stories all across the Central Valley and Beyond...
The first step in our process is making sure I am a great fit for you! It is just as important for you to love your photographer as it is their work, since they will be with you more on your wedding day than your future spouse! We will schedule a meeting at one of my favorite cozy coffee places or a video chat, where we can get to know each other. I want to hear your vision for your special day and answer any questions you may have!
Your SPV Wedding Experience begins once you decide that I am the "other" one for you, and your date is booked! That is the moment you join the SPV Family and become a new friend! You will receive a welcome gift with special goodies personalized just for you, along with my custom Bridal Guide, a magazine filled with information to help you prepare for your wedding day. You will receive an invitation to join my exclusive SPV Brides Facebook group, where you can meet past and present SPV brides.
Your next step is to schedule your engagement session, one of the most important steps in preparing for your wedding day portraits. During our time, we get to know each other. You will learn my posing process and get comfortable in front of my camera. After your engagement session, your blog goes live, and you will get another little gift in the mail from me.
One month before your wedding day, you will receive a questionnaire, a family portrait list, and a wedding day timeline. We will work together to finalize all the details and make sure I have everything I need to know about your special day to be 110% prepared!
The day we’ve all been waiting for is finally here! I will be with you from getting ready until the party dancing gets underway. My job is to capture all the special moments and offer whatever moral support you need. Your job is to soak it all in. My goal is to tell your story in a way that reflects everything about who you are. I create images you can FEEL when you look at them because your photographs should help you remember what it felt like on your wedding day, not just how it looked!
You'll receive your full gallery of images in 2-3 weeks from the wedding day in an online gallery. You can download your high-resolution digital files, share, and print from your gallery. I encourage my couples to sit down, relax (with glass of wine, of course) and enjoy reliving the most special day of your lives!
There are so many decisions to make when planning your wedding. Trying to decide which photo collection to choose can be like Goldilocks trying to find the right chair! No one needs that headache. To keep things simple, I offer one collection that can easily be customized to fit your personal needs.

I select a very limited number of weddings each year to be able to provide the care and attention that each of my couples deserves. Get in touch soon if you want to be an SPV Bride!
We valued your ability to make us feel comfortable throughout everything, from the engagement photos to the wedding day. We were always worried that we would look awkward, but you hyped us up and made us laugh all the time! You were able to capture every single moment of our big day, even the small details. When I came into the house during the reception and you were already editing photos says enough! I could tell that you absolutely love what you do and just having a photographer that made taking photos for hours so easy was a plus! And the little gifts you give before and after the wedding were awesome too! You had everything under control and knew how to direct people in the right direction when it comes to photography. I would tell anyone on the fence to BOOK NOW, before someone else does! We appreciated everything.

Adam and I absolutely enjoyed working with Todd and Carianne! From the personal and detailed email greeting to the amazing way they presented our edited wedding photos was perfect! I HIGHLY recommend and will continue to use them in the future. Thank you guys!
Ya'll were so awesome and did so much for us. We can't thank you enough for how awesome our pictures turned out and all the support and love ya'll gave us. We can't wait for the time we can get together again, whether it's for fun or for more pictures!
Having Stargazer Photo and Video was the best decision I made for my wedding. The photos are amazing from the engagement session and wedding. I also really appreciated the planning and help Carianne offered. It was priceless. Then the cherry on top is the beautiful personalities this team has that make you feel so comfortable.
We can not say enough how thankful we are for these two PHENOMENAL photographers! They went above and beyond from the first day we met them and even AFTER the wedding!! Their organization skills were by far the best I've seen, which made our day so much easier. Their love and creativity truly shows through their hard work and Carianne will surely keep your heart full of joy as her passion overflows, while capturing your precious memories. I would highly recommend them for your wedding, prom, maternity, engagement, family portraits, anything! Their work is amazing and we love all our pictures, seriously can't pick a favorite!
I couldn’t say enough good things about the people behind the camera of Stargazer photography & video! They did our engagement & wedding photography and were super sweet, helpful, & professional! I am so pleased with the quality, timing, & overall work I received. The pair definitely make you feel comfortable and are so accommodating, love these two. I wouldn’t hesitate to book with them for your next event!
I would absolutely recommend Carianne if you are looking for a photographer who is passionate about her job, attentive to your needs, & makes you feel extremely comfortable. She is so organized and on top of everything. She pays attention to the big and small details. It was honestly like having a second day-of coordinator. She not only takes amazing pictures, she has an amazing energy that makes the whole experience exciting! If you love to laugh and feel joy, I would not miss booking with Carianne. My husband and I will cherish these photos for a lifetime.
