Thank you for visiting! My name is Jovana Padilla. I’m a Central Valley, California photographer who is head over heels in love with her career. I have a wonderful husband who helps me photograph my weddings and he’s often the light of the room, David. I also have two amazing sons named Anakin (Yes, like Darth Vader), and August they are the sassiest baby you’ll ever meet. I’ve been photographing for six beautiful years and have had the blessing of meeting some of the most beautiful people on the face of this earth. The greatest joy of being a photographer is having a connection with someone’s memories. It’s a tangible expression of love, peace, and happiness, and who doesn’t want that? I mean. Really? My style of photography is more of a modern approach, while I appreciate the traditional poses and will happily give them to you (grandma and grandpa rejoice!), I would much rather capture you in your true essence with candid shots. I promise to always give you my 100% and to not only be your photographer but also be seen as a close friend at the end of the experience. I love hearing about how excited you are and how you want the session to go. Send me lots of ideas! Your wish is my command. *Wink* If you’re excited it makes feel a billion times more excited to meet you and get our ideas together! My goal every day is to make YOU happy. So, let’s get together and make something beautiful.
