V.I.P. Studios Photography was founded in Davis, California in 1989. The studio used 35mm and medium format film back then and photographed weddings, family portraits and events in Davis as well as the greater Sacramento Valley. In 1998 I took over the ownership of the studio and continued to serve the Davis and Sacramento communities. Weddings were initially what I concentrated on. Soon after, the demand for portraits gave rise to family and children’s portraits that initially were done in the fall mainly and soon became a year round offering by the studio.

My background in event photography and ties to the university also gave me an opportunity to work with many organizations on campus photographing banquets and formals. Today, the studio is dedicated to any and all types of photography: from passports to architecture, pet portraits, newborns, families, environmental, and executive portraits, events and weddings.The studio is proud of its long standing relationship with the University of California at Davis, its graduation coordinator and the senior portraits it provides for all graduates of UC Davis.

The studio is committed to creating quality images and providing excellent customer service that makes the V.I.P Studio’s experience like no other.
