Catskills wedding photographer

They say a picture’s worth a thousand words — but few images carry the kind of weight that can be felt in those created by Dustin Cantrell. Artfully balancing light, shadows, color and darkness, Dustin’s images are intimate and dramatic, evoking the kind of emotion that can only be expressed by a couple in love.

Dustin is a California native with a vagabond spirit that’s taken him on adventures around the globe. His travels have helped inspire, influence and evolve his technique and distinctive style. Dustin shoots weddings across California and would love to travel to your dream destination to document your most treasured day.

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

My goal for every couple is to capture candid, beautiful, and unique photos. My creativity thrives when brides and grooms have a distinct style, personality, and uniqueness. Capturing an off beat wedding makes my job easier.

"We couldn't be happier in choosing Dustin as our wedding photographer. His aesthetic perfectly matched what we were looking for and he's a master of working with light!
Not only are his photographs beautiful, but he was an absolute dream to work with. He was extremely professional but also laid back, and very patient when photographing our large extended family.
We hope to have the opportunity to work with him again! He's highly recommended!!" -Nichole F.

"We couldn't recommend Dustin more highly! He was the stand out person we worked with on our wedding day. He exquisitely captured our special weekend, from our rehearsal dinner through our wedding. He was impressively attuned to the needs of our wedding day which was filled with less than ideal weather and lighting conditions. As he and we stood alternately under umbrellas that day, we never could have expected how thrilled we would be with our photos. The stunning images he captured are a testament not only to his skill and eye but also to his professionalism, which shone as he worked tirelessly from the moment he arrived until our last guest left. Hiring Dustin was a decision we couldn't have made better." -Lauren M.

"Fantastic wedding photographer – highly recommend! We love Dustin. From the beginning to the end, he was perfect. We did an engagement shoot at Crissy Field in SF and loved the candid, not staged moments he captured. The day of our wedding in Calistoga, he was able to beautifully capture all our special moments, without us every feeling like he was there. We received a fantastic array of ceremony shots and moments captured with family, friends, dinner, dancing, and late-night festivities. We are thrilled with the quality and breadth of the shots." -Natasha P.
