San Luis Obispo Wedding Photography at its funnest

Applemoon photography brings the fun to wedding photography by developing a comfortable rapport with clients to create timeless images that they will love for the rest of their lives. Based out of San Luis Obispo, Applemoon features the wedding photography of Maren and Michael Brajkovich - photographers in love who would love to take your picture.

They Met in a Photo Darkroom - Literally

Maren and Michael first met eyes under the deep red glow of the darkroom light (visualize: applemoon) at their local college. Over a decade later, they are still side by side crafting awesome images. These two are giddily photographing weddings not only in San Luis Obispo, but also capturing Paso Robles weddings, Santa Margarita weddings, Edna Valley weddings, Arroyo Grande weddings, Avila Beach weddings, Santa Maria weddings, Montecito weddings, and Santa Barbara. Their cameras get especially happy capturing barn weddings, vineyard weddings, winery weddings, private estate weddings, and beach weddings.

In the eyes of Applemoon, “wedding photography is not a job for us, it’s a vocation. We are fortunate to be witness and testimony to an experience that is at once sacred, personal, and fun. Our testimony is the imagery of our client’s wedding experience. How incredible is that?”

Engagement Photography

Michael and Maren describe their process: “We go to awesome spots around San Luis Obispo county- downtown SLO, Avila beach, numerous hill trails, local barns, Edna Valley or Paso Robles wineries, or whatever place holds personal meaning to a couples’ relationship, and we have a BLAST together. Since we, as a couple, are playful and close, we help create an atmosphere where couples are also comfortable to be playful and close.” Choosing Applemoon engagement photography is smart because the ease that is established with couples and Maren and Michael’s cameras carries over into that couple’s wedding day.

Favorite Venues to Photograph Weddings?

Applemoon Photography loves shooting at a variety of venues in San Luis Obispo and Paso Robles. The surrounding areas provide a wealth of amazing places to tie the knot, and almost any spot is going to be epic since, as National Geographic and Oprah proclaimed, San Luis Obispo is “the happiest place in America.”

Does Applemoon Photograph Only Weddings or Engagements?

Fortunately, Applemoon Photography doesn’t just do engagement and wedding photography. Applemoon also captures family photography and senior/graduate photography. Michael and Maren exclaim, “We love photographing families and kids- we make it fun and creative. And shooting high school seniors - which we can’t get enough of - helps sharpen our edge. We hope you enjoy our portfolio of images! If you like our fun and timeless style of photography, call us. We’d love to get to know you!”
