Kristina & Tiphanie / New Year’s Eve intimate wedding / LGBT wedding photographer / Arroyo Grande, CA

It was a beautiful and brisk New Years Eve day for Kristina and Tiphanie’s intimate outdoor garden wedding. The couple planned a simple and elegant destination wedding in Arroyo Grande on the Central Coast of CA.

I received Kristina’s phone call inquiring about my services while I was driving to another event. I pulled over and IMMEDIATELY felt such a connection with her and was so honored that she chose Renoda Campbell Photography to photograph their wedding.


Here’s how they met:

Tiphanie and I were friends many years ago and our lives went in different directions. We reconnected back in 2016 and began spending time together.  Her work relocated her for an 18-month job assignment to TX. Rather than causing a strain on our relationship, this has actually caused us to grow closer. Tiphanie asked me to marry her in Summer of 2018 in Mexico. She arranged for a private lobster and champagne brunch on the beach. She played our favorite songs during brunch... I told her that we live a pretty amazing life... and she told me there was one way to make it even better. Then she pulled out a ring that we had looked at several months prior in Hawaii together. Of course, I said yes! 


The Casitas Estates in Arroyo Grande is a gorgeous location for a wedding or private event. The sweeping views and manicured grounds are amazing! Pat G, the owner, was very gracious and welcoming. I look forward to photographing many more weddings at this venue. 

Congratulations Kristina and Tiphanie!
