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, best friends in love, ready to take a leap of faith, hand in hand into that great unknown, marriage.
Early on in our career we knew we wanted to document love in the purest form. Our mantra, "Photography For Best Friends In Love" is something we crafted our entire brand around. We believe when marriage is built upon a foundation of love and friendship, there isn't a more beautiful story to share with the world.
We first met at our former jobs, a warehouse that raises live butterflies. We became instant friends.
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.
Being your wedding photographer means so much more to us than simply clicking the shutter button on a camera and knowing our manual settings. It's something we won't ever take for granted because we understand the importance of this moment for everyone involved.
Being your wedding photographer means being a part of something greater than the day of, we are documenting milestones for you to have and to hold, forever. When you hire us, you join our family, and we join yours as you embark on life's greatest adventure yet.
We are there for you when mom looks on to see her little girl all grown up. We capture the tear jerking moments when you recite your vows, we are even there when grandma and grandpa share their sweet dance moves with the world at the reception! These are the moments we live to share, this is why we chose to do this for a living, because we love every moment of it.
"If you are looking for a photographer that will go the extra mile, Vic and Sasha should be your first choice. From taking our engagement photos in Yosemite National Forest to documenting the silly and intimate moments of our big day. These two will do what it takes to capture the love in your relationship! They will always be our first choice!"
