"I booked an almond orchard session with Vic & Sasha for fun and loved it! I brought my dog and a friend, and they got great pictures of all three of us! Not only that, but we laughed and made jokes together. It felt like I was shooting with old friends. The photos came out beautifully as well! Highly recommend."

Almond Orchard Photography in Bakersfield



We are also your go-to Bakersfield engagement photographers! We LOVE capturing engagement photos! For many, engagement photos are the first time in front of the camera. Using our years of experience, we strive to provide couples with the confidence to look and feel their very best! These images play a big part in telling the full story of your love, we make certain to give you our best!

One of the best ideas we can share for engagement photos is so simple, it can be easily overlooked. We always suggest dressing to the nines and having hair and nails done by a professional for your photos. Because when you look and feel your best that confidence will shine throughout each and every photo! Ladies, get your hair done the same day of the photos. Gentlemen should have it done a few days prior for a natural look. 

Lastly, be bold! Most couples use these images for their "Save The Date's" or for wedding day details, it's the perfect opportunity to take a trip to that beach you always wanted or take the hike you keep eyeing. These locations will make your photos unique and provide you with an amazing story to tell your friends and family every time they see your photos. 

Pre-Wedding Planning


Preparing for your 

Almond Orchards in Bakersfield bloom for only a few weeks out of the entire year! This unique experience has provided some of the most sought after images around. Home to the aromatic and ethereal landscape we've come to know and love, the almond orchards are a delicate backdrop, therefore we ask everyone to please mind the blossoms and respect the bee boxes at all times. Almond Blossoms are beautiful but they are also the backbone of our community in Shafter and provide countless jobs for families. We advise everyone to avoid hanging from branches and otherwise destroying these unique trees.
