Fresh, Modern & Fun!
Thank you for considering my photography services for your wedding!



I've been studying photography for over 20 years. My style is a bit eclectic as I study all types of photography including photojournalism & portrait photography. I love photographing weddings because I have the opportunity to tell the story of my couple's wedding day by capturing a mixture of candid and well composed portraits.
Whether your wedding is indoors or outdoors, in the city or on an exotic beach, I have the skills, experience and gear to handle any situation. 831-325-4183 rebstark@me.com Read less

We had the wedding at the Lodge at Pebble Beach last month and we are loving our wedding photos taken by Rebecca!

I was very surprised the day when she told me more than 500 photos from my wedding day were available for download! When I opened the folder and clicked on each image, it was like the playback of my wedding day--The moments she captured were so vivid and full of emotion! Although me and my husband did not have much time taking photos on different spots, Rebecca made it out on the 18th lawn for us. The portrait and first look Shooting process went super naturally and smoothly. She took many beautiful photos for my reception setting from her artist's eyes. Details speak the words!

she took a little extra time going through each photo and took the glare from the flash out of my husband's glasses, which we really appreciated. Her assistant Lezlie was also very helpful on my wedding day. She helped me carry my heavy dress train around and made sure the lighting was perfect.

Rebecca is such a passionate professional photographer. She made our memories! I would highly recommend Rebecca to be your photographer!

Rebecca was a pleasure to work with, and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. When we talked to other photographers, they started talking about what they do, what their style and specialty is, and what sets them apart from other photographers. Rebecca was the ONLY one to ask what photography style we like and what we would like to get from our wedding pictures. She is very easy to work with -- she has a professional, but joyous character which, on the day of the wedding, helped put my guests and I at ease in front of the camera. Rebecca's prices were a little higher than others, although still competitive, and well worth it to have someone you feel comfortable around on your wedding day and confident in their skills. Our pictures turned out beautifully and we could not be happier with our choice of photographer for our wedding.

I found Rebecca on Yelp and checked out her website and was completely blown away be her beautiful photographs. I contacted Rebecca about 2 months before I planned my small wedding (about 9 people.)
From the beginning, she was super communicative and easy to work with. She was super helpful about helping me find a ceremony site as I am from out of the area. We ended up at Bamboo Giant Nursery and I couldn't have asked for more!
Rebecca and her crew were such a pleasure on the day of. She is obviously very experienced and it shows. She is great at setting up photos and directing guests. In the planning stages, she suggested we go down to a nearby beach and take some more photos and I'm so glad we did. I just received the photos back today and I am super happy!!! All of the photos are stunning! I really could not have asked for anything more. Rebecca is amazing and I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of a photographer.

Rebecca has shot my professional head shot, my wedding, and my maternity shoot. She is amazing! She is so easy to work with, has tons of great ideas and a real vision for light and position. She even worked wonders with light at our beach ceremony despite my insistence that it be in the middle of the day when the light is not optimal. The wind was ferocious too and in most of the pictures you wouldn't know it! All of our staged shots are awesome and she and her assistant also captured so many beautiful and authentic candid shots that I love.

Rebecca is professional and kind and takes the time to get to know her subjects. Her pricing is affordable and she took a little extra time with touch ups on my headshot, which I really appreciated. I would highly recommend her for any type of photography!

We had a wonderful engagement photo shoot in Monterey and Carmel with Rebecca. She makes sure that you enjoy each moment by getting those fun shots with lots of laughter. I truly believe that Rebecca draws the love of the "moment" out in you. Our wedding was held outdoors and our theme was O'Hana. She captured that special moment in our ceremony using the flowers and light in every shot. Rebecca was the infinite professional, patient and happy to adapt to any setting.

We couldn't stop looking at the photos, it was like reliving that special day over and over again. I recommended her to our Catering Director and would not hesitate to recommend Rebecca for a wedding or personal photo shoot. She looks outside the box to capture your special day.

Love, love, love our wedding pictures! Rebecca and her assistant were AWESOME to work with. Rebecca was always available during the planning and organizing and had soooo many great and creative ideas! We had engagement pictures, pre-wedding, ceremony, post ceremony and reception pictures and they all turned out GREAT! There are so many beautiful pictures it's extremely hard to choose which ones to pick for our wedding album and enlarge for our wall. Rebecca definitely captured a timeline for a very important and special time in our life! Can't thank her enough!!!

What can I say about Rebecca Stark?

SHE IS AMAZING!!!

I was blessed enough to meet Rebecca at a Wedding Showcase in Santa Cruz some years ago. Our connection was instant. And I am fortunate enough to call her my friend. If you look at her pictures you will see that her skill is undeniable. She has an eye for art. She sees beauty in rare places. She captures color and light in a way I have never seen before. And she has the coolest sense of humor! 2 years ago, I asked Rebecca to take some shots of me. I went to her studio and found myself extremely shy – as I often am – in front of the camera! All I could see was this huge camera lens in my face, and the only thing I remembered to do was smile. But then Rebecca started talking to me, posing me, walking around with me. When I got back the proofs I was in shock! Those were honestly the best photos anyone has ever taken of me. SO, I knew the perfect person to help me with my Boudoir photos... Rebecca! I was paranoid about losing weight, having the perfect outfits, looking good. But Rebecca just instilled such confidence in me, and helped me to have a relaxed and fun time. I arrive at her studio, and she has a drink waiting for me. Thank goodness! I sure needed it. She walked me through the process. Gave me the appropriate amount of compliments to make me feel like I wasn’t such an elephant. And then started shooting - I love how she gets down on the floor with you, or shows you EXACTLY what she wants you to do. She’s not afraid to muss up my hair, or grab a piece of fabric and drape it over me for the “perfect shot.” She is tremendously talented! I’m pretty sure we ran over our studio time, but she had so much fun that it made me actually let loose and have fun myself. The end result? Perfection. The hubby loved it. And I looked insanely gorgeous, all thanks to Rebecca. Love you, girl.

I am a newly wed and like any bride I was very worried about how my photos were going to turn out to mark such an important occasion. I can honestly say Rebecca is incredible she very much captured the emotion of the whole ceremony and I had no idea my husband and I could look that beautiful. She was very prompt, professional and we were so lucky to have her as our photographer!

Rebecca Stark did an excellent job photographing my wedding. An assistant accompanies her regardless of the package, which differs from many other photographers. The assistant really helped save a lot of pictures, fixing jackets and hair and assisting with lighting. She even helped tie my complicated bustle. Rebecca is very professional. She set up a meeting at my wedding site before the event to assess the lighting and discuss photo opportunities. She had a great sense of timing on the big day and was able to fit in all the important photos on our list. The pictures turned out excellent. Some of my favorite photos are from an area she suggested.

We just got married and absolutely love our wedding photos! Rebecca thinks outside the box and was able to capture candid moments that show just how happy our guests were. Instead of waiting for us to tell her what to shoot, she was very independent and knew exactly what she needed to do. She had a list of what we wanted and made sure those items (and more) were taken care of.

She always has an assistant with her to make sure the lighting is perfect. She mailed us the original photos on DVD with VERY high quality, crisp detail. The colors in our wedding photos were so vivid, I was able to really see my wedding come to life and relive it when I went through the album.

It was really hard, but I narrowed down my top 110 photos out of around 800 and still look at them almost every day (I aimed for 100 but just couldn't narrow the album down more).

If you want to see some examples of the photos she took, visit Yelp and my name is "Kathy S".
