YOUR ADVENTURES. YOUR SPECIAL MOMENTS. YOUR SWEETEST MEMORIES
Candi Cooper. Portrait Photographer
Hello and welcome to CCP website. I specialize in family, children, and portrait photography in San Jose, the Bay Area, and the Santa Cruz Mountains. I have a BFA in Photography from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. I have studied and trained with elite professional photographers for 6 years and have been in business for over 15 years. Photography to me is a profession, not just a hobby, so I take pride in capturing a moment of your life's adventures and I make it a fun adventure!
My style is traditional portrait and studio styled shoots, using professional strobes and props. In the studio I can create unique and boutique style portraits or just a simple setup. I have a traveling studio and can come to you. My family portraits are photographed outdoors, since we live in a beautiful location which provides a wide variety of locations. I am not just a natural light photographer. I believe you can create more to photographs than just looking for good light. As a professional, I balance natural light, reflectors, and strobes, in order to make images more unique and bold. Photography means the study of light, in all different forms. I do not just look for good light, I create it. I study the location and the light in every session. Making sure your photographs are stunning and vivid.
Have an event? I create styled portrait pop-ups for parties and setup stunning scenes designed specifically for your event. Check out my most recent work with Tutu School Scotts Valley Ballet events HERE.
