Planning a Bay Area wedding? We’ve got just the gal to end your search for a wedding photographer. Not only does Liz Caruana shoot weddings from San Francisco to Palo Alto, she has also brought her skills further North to Toronto, Canada. This talented photographer has always been drawn to telling stories with images and considers her style glamorous documentary.
“I’m nonintrusive in my approach and let the day flow naturally, capturing beautiful moments as they happen. Since I also shoot fashion I have an eye for details and ensure that before I snap the shutter everything is just perfect.
Liz loves shooting portraits and posed couple photos. In fact, one of her favorite weddings involved shooting a posed full fashion style editorial with the groom and bridesmaids just like you’d see in the pages of Vanity Fair.
“I think those are the moments where the bride and groom get to have fun and make photos that will say something about them.”
Liz’s recommendation to brides just starting their search for a wedding photographer is to find someone that you connect with. She explains that the photographer obviously needs to have the imagery to back themselves up, but you’ll be spending the day with the person and you want to make sure you’re comfortable with them so they can capture your day.
When it comes to her equipment, Liz shoots with two full frame Nikon cameras. Her collection boasts a variety of fast lenses so as to be able to capture fine details to wide, sweeping landscapes. If the wedding goes into the evening, she brings lights in addition to her on-camera flash so that her images are dimensional and not flat.
A few fun facts about our Bay Area wedding photographer? Liz is a marathon runner. She has loads and loads of energy and when she isn’t shooting a wedding or fashion editorial, she’s training for a race. This year her big race is the New York City Marathon. She also has an adorable Boston Terrier who comes to the studio with her every day. Says Liz of her pooch, “she is a sweetheart and charms the hearts of everyone, even non dog lovers!”
