Sonia Tapia


I’m Sonia Tapia, a fulltime wedding photographer. Getting to the heart and soul of people is my passion. Capturing emotion has been my specialty for the past 8 years.

After earning a Bachelor’s Degree from Cal State LA, I spent some years as Systems Administrator working on computer systems and networks behind-the- scenes. However, I thrived most when I worked face to face with people. Photography was a creative lifeline. It was a path to express myself in a completely different and liberating way. It was so enticing that one day I closed my eyes and took a leap of faith. I made storytelling my full time career through the art of photography.
