Jose Villa Photography
People often ask me how I developed my style, and how I create images that stand out in today’s highly competitive wedding market. Well, I am a Fine Art Wedding photographer. My approach applies fine art photography to the living, breathing, fast-moving phenomenon that is a wedding. For me, it is all about making something beautiful. Ultimately, my goal is to craft vibrant, energetic, fine art images that are as unique as the people in thephotographs. I’m humbled to say that I have been published in Many Magazines around the world, including Grace Ormonde Wedding Style, Elegant Bride, Instyle Weddings, Inside Weddings, Brides Magazine, Modern Bride, Martha Stewart Weddings, Brides, Pacific Weddings, Southern Weddings, PDN, American Photo, and many more around the world.
American Photo Magazine named Villa 1 of the top 10 wedding photographers in the world in 2008. PDN named Villa 1 of the most influential photographers of our decade.
“Todd and I wanted to thank you for such a wonderful time taking our engagement pictures in Solvang about 3 weeks ago. We had so much fun and made some really treasured memories. I know you get this a lot, but you are such a big part of so many peoples special moments and you really made us feel very comfortable and relaxed. We’re so glad to have had the opportunity to work with you! We really enjoyed spending time in Solvang with you in your home town.”

“The photographs are STUNNING….you captured so many magical moments….from Alex’s father giving his memorable speech about the Chumash Indians to Nicholas holding the umbrella to Alex and I staring off towards the ocean to the two of us walking down the aisle…to the way you set up the shots on the beach….genius. Thank you – we couldn’t be more pleased!”
