  • Orange Turtle Wedding Photography Blog

    Welcome to the blog of Orange Turtle Photography!

    I am Cindy and I am the main photographer behind Orange Turtle Photography. I travel throughout California for weddings and portrait sessions.

    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.  If you want to get in contact with me, email me at Thank you for stopping by!

Livermore Engagement Session

I am in love this engagement session!  It was a dream to be working with a sweet, adorable couple with the cutest puppy ever who is great at looking at the camera!  Although we were blessed with gloomy and cloudy weather, it didn’t stop us from having fun and sweet candid moments. Here are some of my favorite images from the session!

Disneyland Family Session

If you know me you would know that I’m a big Disney fan! I love Disneyland and it’s my absolute happy place. When this adorable family told me that they would meet me at the happiest place on earth for a family session, I couldn’t be more stoked!  Seriously I am so spoiled by my amazing clients! I’m so excited to be sharing with you some of the *magical moments* from the session here!


Anadelia & Oscar * San Francisco Wedding

Anadelia and Oscar had an amazing celebration of their love in the most romantic city that is San Francisco! The wedding was absolutely gorgeous and classy, but the best part was that there was so much love and joy and touching moments throughout the day.  It’s been really amazing for me to come to know them and witness their commitment for each other.  With that said, here are some of my favorite images from their day. 

Ceremony at St. Dominic’s Catholic Church. The interior architecture of the church simply amazes me.

Their reception took place at the elegant Julia Morgan Ballroom at downtown San Francisco.

Congrats again to Anadelia and Oscar!

Special shout out to Gina the wedding coordinator extraordinaire for creating all the amazing details and keep the day flowing so smoothly!
