We are Vic and Sasha Barrera, photographers and story-tellers by choice, light chasers by craft. We absolutely love an opportunity to grab our cameras and share beautiful moments with the world. We started out just as you, two best friends in love, ready to take a leap of faith, hand in hand into that great unknown, marriage.
When we're not behind the lens, you'll catch us spending time with family and friends, watching baseball (Go Dodgers!) or likely heading to the beach.
We first met at our former jobs, a warehouse that raises live butterflies.
During college, Sasha starts her own business,
Sasha Saldana Photography.
Fast forward a few years, we reconnect at a local fundraising event and sparks flew. We begin dating shortly after that.
Vic is struck with a life-threatening illness: bacterial meningitis. Only a month after we started dating!
Vic recovers from meningitis. Around the same time, Sasha meets Vic's two children, Victor and Catherine.
Only after a few months of dating, Vic proposed! Sasha said YES!!!!
Sasha teaches Vic the ropes around photography. We quickly realized how much we loved doing photography together.
Sasha graduates from Cal State Bakersfield with her Bachelor's in Fine Art with an emphasis in Education.
We said "I do!" and officially become, The Barrera's!
We unexpectedly learn Vic has a rare heart defect that requires open heart surgery!
After hearing the devastating news about Vic's heart, we get Kobe, our golden retriever to lift our spirits.
After a few emotional months, Vic undergoes a successful open heart surgery.
Vic makes a full recovery from surgery. Here is Kobe comforting him in time of need.
We rebrand from Sasha Saldana Photography to Vic & Sasha Photography, our now husband and wife team.
Having a passion for teaching, Sasha begins the credential program in hopes to teach high school art.
