Carretto Studio


I have been photographing weddings since 2010. That was the year my wife and I got married, and the year I discovered how rewarding it is to create timeless, authentic, and elegant images for other couples to document the beauty of their wedding day.

I consider myself a fine art photographer, and I use both film and digital images to tell a wedding story. I am captivated by the beauty of simplicity, and I love timeless portraits. To me, there are few things that top the combination of a radiant couple, beautiful light, and a medium format film camera. It has been a huge honor to be able to photograph weddings and document love stories for couples, in the Bay Area, St. Louis, and abroad.

Originally from Ottawa, IL, I am a graduate of Olivet Nazarene University, where I studied accounting and business management. I met my wife, Elizabeth, in a photography class in Florence, Italy. I love motorcycles, travel, good food, good wine, and good company. After eight years in St. Louis, my wife and I moved to the Bay Area of California, with our dog, Cannoli, and our cat, Artemis.

Thank you for taking the time to view my work, and I would love to be part of documenting your story.
