About Josiah

Authentic, timeless and artisan, is how I would describe my craft as a Fine Art Photographer and Cinematographer.  My name is Josiah Alter, a West Coast Wedding Photographer and Cinematographer. As a photographer, I have the honor of capturing the most important events in life.

Adventurous at heart, I seek more for your images. Not only do I capture to capture the moments, but I capture the raw emotions for you to pass on forever. Each story deserves to be told and I want to help you tell yours.

If you are looking for a California wedding photographer, or a wedding photographer for wherever your wedding takes you, I’d love to hear from you! I’d love to adventure with you through some of the best wedding venues in California. Need some help along the way? That’s what I’m here for, and I’m happy to show you the hidden jems from Santa Barbara to Big Sur, Napa Valley, Lake Tahoe, and everywhere in between. I can’t wait to hear from you about your wedding!


Weddings go beyond the perfect portraits and the social media worthy images. As a photographer and filmmaker it is my goal to capture everything about your wedding. From the guests, to the blurry memories, to the smallest details. I’m here for it! My ideal clients are thankful for these little memories, and while their wedding day may be gone the memories are not forgotten. As a film wedding photographer and filmmaker, I use film cameras where I see fit to timelessly capture the day. It is a seamless transition between film and digital on your wedding day and all of your images and films are timeless and authentic. Part of the reason I hope a client hires me is not because of the images that I create, however because they feel comfortable with connecting with me as a friends, this helps clients and their guests get comfortable around me and my team as people, and creates more authentic imagery.
