Who We Are

Clove & Kin is a San Diego-based photography studio that’s made up of a team of top-notch wedding photographers who have mastered the craft of photographing weddings, and skilled portrait shooters who excel in maternity, baby, and family photography. They will become your photography team, capturing your legacy in natural, photojournalistic, and authentic imagery.

The Moments That Shape Us

One of the greatest honors of being a photographer is capturing the milestones of a family legacy – the first kiss as husband and wife, a newborn coming home, or a family Christmas portrait.

Those are the milestones that create us. But at Clove & Kin, we believe that it’s the in-between moments that shape us.

It’s the fist bump from Dad right before the church doors open. It’s the cufflinks from Grandad as you straighten your suit. It’s Great-Grandma gettin’ down on the dance floor when it’s waaaaay past her bedtime. It’s the quiet moments in the nursery when family has long since gone home. It’s baking your great aunt’s famous sugar cookies at Christmas, and it’s daddy-and-daughter dates every Saturday morning to the donut shop for orange juice and maple bars.

The milestones are when you say ‘I do,’ but it’s the in-between moments when you say ‘I forever will.’ 

The Team

Clove & Kin is made up of a crew of talented photographers plus a full-time team of editors and designers that take the responsibility of telling your story as a challenge and an honor.  Kelsey, our dedicated studio manager, will be your main contact, consulting closely with you throughout the pre- and post-shoot process to make sure that every detail of your photography experience is treated with expert perfection. After the shoot, our behind-the-scenes team of editors and designers will produce stunning images, albums, and fine art products for you to enjoy.  We are not a one-person shop here – your experience and images will be handled by team of skilled and heartfelt professionals with specific expertise in their fields.

The Studio

Our two-story studio loft is located in the heart of the historic Kensington neighborhood in San Diego, CA. Our office sits directly above the local Starbucks, and our vaulted windows overlook the neighborhood park filled kids and families. The city’s best bottle shop with the world’s finest craft beers is just down the block, and we’re surrounded by the most interesting local food scene that San Diego has to offer. To say that we’ve found ourselves a little slice of heaven would be a dramatic understatement.

Contact us to have us photograph the uniqueness of your family or the beauty of your wedding. We’d love to invite you in, pour a cup of tea, and hear more about how we can help.
