Tristan Crane Photography

I specialize in photographing alternative commitment ceremonies, weddings, hand-fastings, and civil ceremonies. As a non-binary identifying queer photographer, I bring my own background to shooting queer and non-traditional weddings and I have been fortunate to with with clients from a wide range of backgrounds.

My style is to mix classical portraiture, journalism, and fashion to tell the story of your unique day.

Every ceremony I shoot teaches me more about the nature of love and I'm constantly in awe of the creativity my clients show in executing their personal style and vision.

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

I support the rights of all people to marry in the way they choose, and my clients come from a wide range of religious and cultural backgrounds. I've photographed weddings lit by stage lights in a dark theater, surrounded by pine groves on the California coast, and underneath a wedding canopy in a tent with rain pouring down outside. Please contact me for a custom quote if you are planning any size ceremony, I create custom packages for many clients and welcome all queries.

"Tristan shot more formal portraits of me and my husband, but they also caught a lot of candid moments between us and guests at the reception. Some of the candid shots were our favorites! Throughout it all, they were reliable, professional, and an all-around pleasure to work with. They addressed our individual concerns and preferences and before the wedding, came up with a plan that suited us as a couple. All our family and friends were really pleased with the pictures." – Jemima P
