Hi! I’m Safeena. My friends call me Saf, so so can you.
I cherish global impact, outdoor adventure, and genuine human connection - and so I’ve integrated all those things into my work.
I believe in honest and emotive storytelling, generosity, and inclusivity. I am passionate about making adventure accessible in the elopement and wedding world.
I think of my creativity as existing in harmonious duality. As a cross between editorial (the pretty) and documentary (the gritty), I strive to portray what is honest in the loveliest way. No need to choose between big, epic portraits and small, truthful moments. No need to pick either loud, joyful photos and quiet, restful images. If it's honest, it's going to be documented. I guide but do not micro-manage. I shoot for how it feels, and focus more on creating a space that lets the beauty of your natural connection shine through than trying to fit you into a box of Pinterest perfection.
I’m based in Malibu, CA, but California’s big wide open and Eastern Sierra are a second home to me. I’ve gotten to know this state through my unreasonable day-trip habit, climbing, and camping. I love showing the best nooks and crannies to new friends.
I’m also well-versed in international destination work, having shot weddings on 5 continents, living on 4 continents, and traveling to over 40 countries in 6 continents (Antarctica, I’m coming for you). I have destination honeymoon/elopement itineraries for some of favorite adventures called the Honeylopement Adventure collection, and would be stoked to bring you along for the ride.
