Bay Area wedding photographer, Freda Banks captures your most memorable moments for a lifetime.



Working with Freda was everything my husband and I could have hoped for - and more! From our very first conversation over the

phone, Freda made me feel heard about my priorities and aesthetic. While she does have a pretty specific aesthetic that is unique

to her (which is actually why I choose her...she is an artist, not just a wedding photographer) I felt completely confidant in he


abilities to incorporate my ideas and capture the essence of my relationship and the spirit of our wedding and community. She did just that. I am obsessed with my wedding gallery - she seemed to be everywhere at once without ever being in the way and caught so many precious and authentic moments. Hire her if you want a downright professional, an artist, and a lovely human to work with.



Working with Freda was a dream. She made my fiance and I feel so comfortable during our photoshoot and the resulting photos could not have turned out more beautifully. We are SO looking forward to working with her at our wedding, as she is one of the kindest, most talented photographers and people I have met. Her photos captured exactly who we are as a couple in a way that no one has before. I can not recommend her more highly. Thank you Freda!


I cannot imagine a better experience through and through. We asked Freda to shoot our wedding primarily as she has such a unique and tasteful aesthetic, but there was such bonus getting to know her along the way, to the point where we felt it was just another friend behind the lens, capturing all of the magic. And magic it was! Not only are the photos beyond what we expected- but the unique prints and full digital masters are all part of the package too! I wouldn’t dare recommend anyone else for any photo gig worth remembering! Thanks Freda!


Freda is amazing! We eloped and wanted our photos to reflect that. Her style captured everything we were looking for- location, love and everything in between. She truly delivered pictures that we will cherish forever.


We couldn't be happier with Freda's beautiful documentation of our wedding day.  Her photos are not only beautiful compositions that captured all the moments we loved but, even more importantly, all the moments we missed in the commotion of the day.  Several guests commented to us that they were impressed by her ability to seemingly be everywhere at once!  Freda was also a great help leading up to our wedding.  We met several times leading up to our wedding and Freda really took the time to understand what was most important to us about our wedding and even had several great suggestions for staging after visiting the site with us which we used and made the space really lovely..  


Freda was such a pleasure to work with. She captured the details and beauty from every element of our wedding and we were beyond delighted with the collection of photographs from our special day. Freda made the entire experience so relaxed and so fun.


Freda was able to capture moments I didn't even realize were happening - split second glances of full emotion that I will cherish forever.  She's able to somehow be everywhere and get every angle, all at the same time.  Its amazing how her photos bring back the feeling of the day as if we're reliving it over & over.  We are so happy.
