I’m Toni G Photo (commonly mistaken as ‘tonig-photo” lol!) + I’m high-key obsessed with capturing uniquely beautiful love stories in a creative/comfortable way. :))) I live in Fresno, California (with my sweet angel baby German Shepherd, Harley) and I shoot mostly in Yosemite National Park or around Shaver Lake! If I’m not editing my life away or snuggling my pup… you can find me setting up meetings/ styled shoots/ editing nights for my local @fresnophotogs community group or… at Butterfish eating my weight in California Poke bowls lol!

I graduated from Fresno State with a Bachelors in Business Management & 100% thought that I’d be running a solar company for the rest of my life… but everything changed when my dad became terminally ill with brain cancer.
I remember working long days/nights & I’d go sleep in a chair next to his hospital bed… wondering what working those long hours at a job that I hated was even worth when I’d rather just spend my dad’s last precious moments with him. 

So I quit my job (with absolutely NO photoshoots or weddings booked lol!) and had a “Jesus-take-the-wheel” type of faith that everything would work out… and it did (thank God lol)!! :))) I can’t even verbally express to you how grateful I am every single day to have a job (that I love!!) that allows me to serve others by freezing moments in time for my clients to come back to & relive forever. I wish, more than anything, that I had more time on Earth with my dad… but I deeply cherish the few photos we took together that remind me of our memories… and I’m SO very passionate about gifting that feeling to others. :))))

my story...

a little more about 

Sipping chartreuse and green tea while looking at the most perfect white subway tile and hand painted signs. Driving through the mountains to Portland reminiscing about the best memories back home. Cozy sweaters, vintage demin, and Pabst while telling one of a kind love stories. The trials and tribulations of love, joy, and happiness. Lastly, champagne brunch and avocado toast while surrounded by the finest exposed brick, dreamcatchers, and maps to our souls. Dreamcatchers, macrame and 100 Days of Summer. Anthropologie trips and walks on the beach, love letters and secret admirers. Fall breeze, flannels, and hot cocoa. Whales and dinosaurs and handmade crafts. Salvage denim, antique leather bags, and the first time we watched Moonrise Kingdom. 

The slow hum of traffic and the cool breeze that signify the joy of a new day.

our philosophy

my approach

More than just your wedding day vendor… I’m here to be your FRIEND & an “extension of your guest list” on one of the biggest days of your life :))) I’ll be there to fix your hair, fluff up your dress, tell you how beautiful you look, & keep your bridal party on schedule when they’ve had oneeee too many white claws lol!! 

My hope is that years from now, you’ll break out these photos + remember how it felt to be young, alive, + hopelessly in-love. That you’ll never stop learning new ways to love each other + hold onto your passion for adventure. That you’ll make conscious efforts to step back from the craziness of life to be still; & always make time to capture who you are and who you’re becoming. 

“Toni G. is truly a GIFT from the photography gods. Honestly, I don’t think there’s another photographer out there who we could possibly feel more comfortable with! Toni became a true friend to the both of us right off the bat & we could not have asked for anything more! BOOK HER! We love you Toni!”

“I could go on and on about how sweet, friendly, bubbly, fun to be around person Toni is but let me tell you about her as a photographer. She is amazing. Gods gift to photography. If you are an awkward couple, its fine, she will MAKE SURE you are not. She made us so comfortable. There are so many people who just have a camera but Toni is a true photographer and she is amazing at what she does! You will not be disappointed I dont even think she can take a bad photo.”

- TONI M.

“WORDS CANNOT EXPLAIN HOW MUCH WE LOVE OUR PHOTOS!! In just a few short hours you captured our love in so many photos. During the shoot, you made us feel so comfortable and we had such an amazing time. We were so nervous we wouldn’t know how to pose or that we would look goofy in all of them but with your guidance they came out better than I could have ever asked for. These photos will be something we forever cherish.”

- KAYLA

“My husband and I are not big picture takers but Toni made us so comfortable and even better.. made us look good. When it came time to hire our photographer for our elopement, we knew we had to have her. Her personality alone is infectious and I knew I wanted that kind of positivity surrounding me for our wedding. She’s also the best hype man. We got our wedding gallery the other day and we are in love with our pictures! Toni really is the best at what she does!”

- STEPHANIE

“Not only is she a talented photographer she is also professional, kind, funny, personable, and a genuine human. She went above and beyond and knew exactly what we wanted and even what we didn’t know we wanted! We are still gushing over the photos and we so happy to have these photos to look back on for the rest of our lives!! I couldn’t recommend Toni enough!”

- JESSICA

“We honestly were so happy with our photos and spent the whole time smiling and laughing at each other while looking through them lol! Toni made us feel like we could be models too hehe. Exploring Big Sur was amazing and it was more beautiful than I could’ve imagined but most importantly was having Toni there to capture those moments for us. Couldn’t have picked a better location or photographer! She made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera!”

- JANICE

“THANK YOU Toni so much for the gorgeous photos! I’m soooo in love with them, truly. Honestly, they are perfect, the exact vibe I was hoping for!

Thanks for making my photo dreams come true!”

- KRISTEN

“Everything was perfect. Toni is professional, prompt, and she did an amazing job of keeping the bridal party and photos on schedule. She provides clear direction/ communication and maintains a level of kindness that makes it so easy to work with her. Having Toni as our photographer put us at ease and we knew every photo would be magic. Toni’s photos take me back to the very moments during my wedding that made me so happy. We wouldn’t have wanted anyone else to photograph our big day. Thank you Toni!!!”

- ANGELA

“From the very beginning Toni was over the top friendly & down to earth but yet professional and extremely passionate about her work. My husband isn’t very comfortable in front of a camera but Toni made our photo shoot SO MUCH fun by letting us be our goofy selves which allowed her to capture our personalities and love so candidly. We absolutely Love our photos so much and love Toni even more! Thank you so much Toni!!”

- SAMANTHA

“We’ve never been more excited to share pictures of us with friends and family! We literally couldn’t stop ourselves from posting them on social media. Toni truly captured the essence of us. Toni’s guidance was extremely helpful — everyone keeps telling us we’ve never looked happier! Toni was extremely clear + concise when communicating through the booking and her laid back attitude made it so easy to wing it when we didn’t have an exact location on the day of the shoot!”

- KRISTEN

“Toni is absolutely amazing and I will shout that from every roof top I can find. We aren’t picture taking people and she helped to ease us out of our awkwardness and take some really great shots that have become very special to me. Not only is she a talented photographer but she is an amazing human. She is kind and so much fun to be around. Ladies, if you ever wanna be hyped up and feel like the fierce queen that you are then Toni is your gal! Love, love, love!” 

- ELIZABETH

“I originally found Toni through mutual friends who got their engagement photos taken by her. I knew I wanted to book her… so we got an airbnb & Toni & her pup Harley were able to stay with us. It was so fun & her happy & supportive instagram is truly how she is in real life. She helped us pose & gave us so many good tips that made our pictures turn out soooo good. I seriously can’t believe she made our awkward selves look so good!! She even sent us some sneak peaks that night – how friggen amazing is she!?
I will seriously cherish these photos forever.”

- ASHLEE

“Toni of Toni G Photo, was the best photographer my Husband and I could have ever chosen. She took both my engagement photos and Wedding Photos and the products from both shoots were WORKS OF ART. Once I received the photos (EXTREMELY FAST TURN AROUND TIME I would give her 5 stars just for that) I was SHOCKED because Toni had transformed us into super models. I would hire her again and again and again. You can not go wrong with hiring this SWEETEST human, who also take amazing photos.”

- VANESSA

“We are beyond the moon over how our photos came out! We went into it totally awkward and not knowing what we got ourselves into… but Toni was so good at making us laugh that we were comfortable in a matter of minutes! As it turns out, my now fiancé and Toni had been secretly coordinating this proposal for weeks and he popped the question during the shoot! I was so surprised/ happy and the best part is we get to remember that moment forever with the photos Toni captured. I would recommend this talented little lady to anyone/ everyone!”
