Meet Linda Calderon Petty of Creative Photography by Linda

Today we’d like to introduce you to Linda Calderon Petty.

Linda, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I was photographing landscapes and water movement when a friend asked me to photograph their cousin’s wedding. I felt experienced enough as it was a simple home wedding but I was not prepared as to how this would change my photography. I was taken by surprise at how much the emotion of the couple would drive my creativity and draw me in to the love they have are. From that moment on my art would be forever changed and each new couple brings a different feel and set of emotions, allowing me to create something uniquely special for them in their photos. Now, when I see a landscape my only thought is how beautifully complete it would be with a Bride and Groom and all of the emotion they would bring to the beautiful scenery.

Has it been a smooth road?
I would love to say that it has been all roses and lilies along the way but as a business owner there are always ups and downs, mostly due to the competition within this industry and the misconception that choosing a wedding photographer is not one of the most important choices for their day. There are many talented photographers and a Bride and Groom must choose the best fit for them and also be mindful of their budget.

The one thing I try to impress on my clients is that, at the end of their day, the only thing they have, besides each other is memories and their photos. Their photography choice should be one of the top 5 priorities on their list of desires for their wedding as well as choosing one that fits their unique style and personalities.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Creative Photography by Linda – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
We are wedding photographers, the storytellers of your day. We develop a close working relationship with you, getting to know your relationship so we can create a one of a kind experience that’s just for you. Once your day is complete we take all of your shared moments and create an album that tells the story of your day. This is not your Mother’s wedding album. We specialize in hand made wedding album creations from Graphistudio in Italy. Their choices, quality and designs are unparalleled in the industry and while they take a bit longer to receive, they are well worth the wait.

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
There are many fabulous places to photograph in and around LA and Orange County. You can absolutely find any number of spaces to create beautiful personalized memories for clients. My only least like about our area is the traffic and population congestion especially when you are wanting your client to get comfortable with being photographed only to have a thousand people watching you.
