The Photographer


Hi! I am Cindy and main photographer behind Orange Turtle Photography! Orange Turtle Photography started out in San Diego but now we are residing in Northern California Bay Area and I am available for weddings all over California.  I have been a professional photographer close to 10 years!

A turtle is just a turtle until you give it color.  Once you give it color, all of a sudden the turtle has personality, emotion and life.  The turtle is now sun loving, ocean swimming, happy fun and chill.  Color helps you feel. So we have a choice to leave the turtle just a turtle… or to give the turtle color. Images in colors that give you the warm fuzzy feeling is my speciality.

If you find that my photography style resonate with your heart, I would love to connect with you. Please email me [email protected] or fill out the contact form! I also update the blog occasionally (with even more photos) so be sure to check that out. You can also find me on Instagram @orangeturtle.
