Indulge Wedding Photography & Cinema approach is simple: to tell a love story. A wedding is a personal story and at Indulge, we strive to document this special love story in a timeless artistic approach. The main focus is to give our clients an experience that will be remembered, while documenting their love story. We will go above and beyond to make each client feel special in every way. This is crucial in our business because we believe it helps establish a relationship with our clients that produce natural, emotional photography and cinematography. Indulge’s style borders on both intimate and artistic while leaning towards a fine art fashion approach. Our vision is to capture emotions and expressions others may not be able to see on their special day, and as all artists, we strive to find different angles and light that frame memories to tell a love story that will last a lifetime.

“This is a team of ARTISTS who are skilled in their field because they are passionate about their work. This is not a job, but an art to them! Picture this engagement setting: Beach in Santa Cruz around 6PM–windy, cold, and a bit of a hike to get to. My husband and I are shivering and my skin clearly has goosebumps. Enter the Indulge team: Gorgeous, panoramic, scenic pictures where it looks like its a perfect sunny day with minimal wind, dramatic waves, and two souls having a romantic picnic on their first date (It was the same beach of our first kiss). So AMAZING I cried when I saw the pictures! Though it was windy, cold, and took several hours, this team cared more about capturing those pictures than their comfort. As if that wasn’t enough, they had previously scoped the area to find the perfect lighting and time of day for the shoot. Then, they took us to a different area to continue taking some great shots! Wedding: At the wedding, nothing can be posed or redone so it must be a struggle to capture an unexpected unforgettable moment. Not for them. The quality in the pictures is so good and the team did a wonderful job at not interrupting the guests or us.”

“They were a lot of fun to work with and we’re more thrilled with the results than we ever thought we could be. We loved our pictures so much, that we’ve had a very tough time selecting ones to frame and display… we can’t exactly cover all of our walls with wedding pictures, but that’s practically what we want to do! My husband hasn’t always taken the best pictures, his eyes are usually squinting or closed or he makes an odd look on his face… in fact prior to our wedding, I didn’t think that pictures of him looked like him at all, and other friends commented on this. However, Indulge figured out how to take amazing pictures of both of us, and these are literally the first pictures I’ve seen where my husband actually looks like himself!”

“Amazing photos! Did a great job of getting the kids to relax and captured some great shots. Both my son and daughter got engaged and she took some fantastic pics of the four of them together for me.”
“When we got our wedding video, I was so thrilled that they got so many different angles and shots of our wedding that neither of us got to see. They captured all the important parts of our wedding and we couldn’t be more happier. I have watched our wedding video many times and it still gets me teary-eyed.”
“Working with Indulge was such a pleasure! They’re so friendly and are really easy to feel comfortable with… They listened to all of my ideas and made the visions in my head come true! Indulge is an amazing group and I am incredibly satisfied with my pictures!”
“As a Hair and makeup artists, I’ve worked with numerous Photographers. I had to say, they are very pleasant to work along side with.. They had sent me images of my bride’s photos and I was very impress with the great qaulity they had done and as an artist, it totally made my work stand out. I love all the photos and I hope we’ll have an opportunity to work together again.”
“As a wedding coordinator, I had the pleasure of working with the Indulge photo/video team at an elegant downtown SF wedding. Indulge provided five photographers and videographers to literally capture every moment from every angle – professionally, efficiently, and always courteous.”
