Monterey Bay Portrait & Local Art Photographer

“I believe the world is incomprehensibly beautiful - an endless prospect of magic and wonder.” – Ansel Adams

Hello & Welcome!
             I'm Amy...

Amy Medina Monterey Bay, Santa Cruz Photographer with Camera

I specialize in Outdoor Portraiture and local Fine Art Wall Prints of beautiful sights near me in the California Monterey Bay Area from Big Sur to Santa Cruz & Beyond!

My photography style can range from classic to creative but is always full of beautiful light, emotion & rich tones. I capture the unique, special moments and details with a relaxed approach tailored to you.  I specialize in getting photos that feel like YOU using prompts more than poses in outdoor natural light at locations in and around California's Monterey Bay area.

I strive to create images that don't end in a social feed. It all starts with a consultation to hear your vision. From there we collaborate to create fine works of art out of your milestones and your everyday lives that will be treasured as heirlooms for generations to come.

I can’t wait to hear from you, get to know your story, and begin creating and capturing flattering and beautiful photos together!

     Thank you for considering me to create your photos!
I am excited to collaborate with you to create images whether  you are looking for fine art for your home, artistic portraiture, or engaging images for your business needs. 
My greatest happiness is to help down-to-earth people capture genuine, flattering, natural light portraits. I feel honored and grateful to work with people who understand the aesthetic, artistic, or soul-uplifting value of imagery in not just digital form but also in tangible printed forms.

Capturing life. Creating art.
Because Life is Beautiful.
