When you take a Southern California boy and mix him with a small town Sonoma County girl you would never assume it could work... but when we met in College every difference we had seemed to mold us closer than we ever could have imagined! With no time to spare, Jon moved across the state for me, and it's been history ever since. So many say to wait and hold off on marriage, we married young and haven't looked back! We loved our wedding, from the planning all the way until the very end... and when we were done we kept dreaming about it, talking about it, and wanting more! (which looking back it makes sense that we ended up in the wedding industry, we clearly are a couple of suckers for love.)
That is what we want for you! We want to help you create the wedding of your dreams so that you never look back and think "what-if". We do this through our storytelling approach to wedding photography, and capturing all of the behind the scenes, raw and romantic moments that happen through your wedding day. We do this by being on your side during the planning process and on your wedding day. We are there for you, but we are also there with you, not only as your wedding photographer but as your friend!

So get to know us, feel free to ask us anything you have on your mind! We pride ourselves at being very responsive, and honest so that you never feel lost or confused in the maze of wedding planning. Photographs are the one piece of the day you are able to take with you and pass down to loved ones, which is why we want to do anything in our power to make sure we know all the details of your wedding day to ensure that we capture it perfectly.
Britney & Christina
Christina & Britney are our amazing photography team who you are going to LOVE! Both of them have degrees from CSU Sacramento in Photography, and are sweetest and most comfortable people to be around (besides us of course...) they will fit right in when shooting your day!
We have searched tirelessly to find a team that really felt good, comfortable, like home to us, and were so blessed when these two came into our lives! What we love most about these girls is their passion for weddings is just as big as ours! We asked them both about "why weddings" and their responses were about how there is nothing quite as special as documenting the day two people commit their lives to each other, and that the excitement and the fast pace of everyone getting ready for the best day of their life is too great to miss! We can't wait for you to meet them!
Nate & Jessi
Nate & Jessi are our dynamic duo who help us with our videography! They are an amazing team, another married couple just like us!
These two are also a very laid back and happy couple, who you will welcome with open arms! They are skilled photographers in the trade who transitioned into video once they got their feet wet and felt an amazing passion for the cinematic side of the wedding industry.
Capture Create Studios has an amazing style that is a mix of posed and documentary. We always strive to make clients feel the most comfortable in front of our camera. We focus on capturing emotion, light, and color, and can’t wait to be apart of your day! When we decided to take on a team of photographers we did not do this lightly and have personally worked and followed these two photographers in their personal journey's of growth. Both of them are very easy to be around, great at their craft, and have tons of experience under them (so much so that we felt comfortable putting our reputation on their shoulders!)
We are a family here at Capture Create Studios, so regardless if you are working with Jon and Chelsea, or our team you are still getting the same quality, commitment and attention to detail we are known for. Feel comfortable knowing that we would hire these two to shoot our very own wedding, therefore we know they will do an amazing job shooting yours.
“We loved Chelsea and Jon! They are kind, relaxed, and fantastic photographers. We're so glad we found them for our wedding and have already recommended them to other friends getting married. They really go the extra mile to make sure things are perfect for the engagement shoot and wedding pics! I could not recommend them more!”
- Mackenzie Cane | Marin, CA (Wedding Photography)
"THE BEST wedding photographers! If you are looking for talented, creative, professional, hard-working, passionate, friendly, and all-in-all amazing photographers for your events, look no further than Jon and Chelsea. They both went ABOVE and BEYOND for all our wedding events (we had a typical big Indian wedding). They truly shined and made sure our events were captured beautifully. They were very responsive throughout the planning process, accommodating with our ideas and helped with their own creative ideas. The final pictures they delivered were exceptional! It was so much fun to work with them too - they are friendly and just awesome individuals.
We are extremely happy! :) Jon and Chelsea, we cannot thank you enough!"
- Hemali Padodara | San Jose, CA (Wedding Photography)
“It's hard to put into words how amazing Jon and Chelsea are. They completely blew us away from the first sit down, all the way through the very last shot! They are relaxed, fun, caring, and most importantly, there for you to capture the moments which will turn out to be the most memorable in your life. The quality of their work speaks for itself in each and every photo, but the people behind the camera make the experience even more incredible. We would not want to work with anyone else, and are extremely grateful to share our day with Capture Create Studios.”
- Brittan & Kayla Hahn | Sacramento, CA (Wedding Photography)
“Had a great experience working with this couple. The ideas and creativity turned our wedding photos into treasured moments. The photos were just a bonus and reminder of what a great day we had. Thank you for sharing your expertise and awesome ideas!!”
- Natalie Ang | Sacramento, CA (Wedding Photography)
“There aren't enough words to describe how beautifully Capture Create Studios documented our wedding day!! From their fun and creative energy to their gorgeous aesthetic & attention to detail, it was everything I could have asked for and more. It was the perfect balance of classic shots and unique takes from Capture Create Studios that made our pictures stand out from many others we'd seen. My husband and I spent a long while "ooh-ing" and "ahh-ing" over the special moments that Chelsea & Jon captured. They are memories that will stay with us forever, and I would choose them again a thousand times over. Thank you so much!!”
- Liz Olvera | San Jose, CA (Wedding Photography)
“They are one of the best choices I made for my wedding! I highly recommend them. Their quality is amazing. They are so nice and professional. They are simply the best!”
- Dennis Martinez | Sacramento, CA (Wedding Photography)
