Mommy Day Photos

Doing these Mommy Mini Day Sessions have been going great.  Here is our latest session with Jessica Smith and her amazing son Kayson!

Amy and her family have become long time clients of ours! They hire us a few times a year.  It's wonderful to watch their family grow.

Photos for Pao's Family.

I (Jeremy) thought that it'd be really nice to take some photos for Paola because before she had become an official partner in Wirth Photography she was assisting me. Giving her a shoot while her brother was in town with her mother too was important to me that she had these moments captured. 


The only time we all had available was the "worst time" to photograph, so we took them on the inside of her moms house. I thought Paola's brother was super nice and cool. Her mom had a sense of pride in her voice when she spoke about Paola and I could tell she was thankful for the photoshoot. 

Paola's now become an official business photographer of Wirth Photography and she's helping write this post. I (Paola) could not be more thankful for these photos capturing just 20 minutes of the love, silliness and closeness that this side of my family shows. 

FoxJump Mock Shoot

We were so excited to have FoxJ ump Cinematics involve us in this beautiful wedding mock shoot. 

We worked together alongside a lot of the best talent in the Central Coast of California. Click through the photos below to see some of our work on this fun day. 

Ashley Darby did a great job on hair and make up in the start of the day. 


The day was almost over, and they brought out cars to reenergize us all and get our creativity out. 

The Inn at The Pier

We are grateful to be part of such a wonderful evening at a beautiful new Venue in Pismo Beach Ca.  We met some wonderful people, thank you for having us!

The Bride and the Rocks.

I am no good with words so here are some photographs of a "bridal inspiration" shoot we did while we had some rain here on the central coast.


Hair and Make up:

Ashley Darby is to give credit for the idea of this photo shoot, the dress, the hair and make up.  Ashley mentioned it would be fun to do a darker "Bridal Inspiration shoot" in the rain.  I got to work as fast as I could.  I knew without a doubt that Erika De Leijaa had to be the Model    We where on location within 42 hours.

It was a great time to be had of  course.  It is always wonderful to bring something different to the table, to express, to make some "art"


The Birth of our Son Rex Morrison Wirth

Rex Morrison Wirth was born on March 5th at 5:01 AM at 9lb 2oz and 20.5 inch.  His birth was one of the most insane things I think I will ever witness.  Ashley's water broke at 4:00 AM, followed by a contraction at 4:03 and another at 4:07.  We arrived at the hospital lets say around 4:45 and Rex was born shortly after.  

Ashley was screaming that this hurt way more than the first time, that she couldn't do it, I tried to warn the nurses that when Ashley speaks she means what she says, so if she is saying her body is locked up and she can't move, she can't move.  I don't think anyone believed us until she started crowning and yelling "the baby is coming"

Maybe seven pushes, maybe! and Rex was here.  Seeing Ashley give the last push was one of the most  euphoric moments of my life.  This whole process was.  The other woman you see in the photographs is Jennie Hitchcock, Ashley dear friend and Dula.  She was the for the whole pregnancy of Lucy and the birth so we wanted her here for this baby.  I wish she could of been here for the whole entire pregnancy but life happens.  She helped bring both Kids into this world and I am beyond grateful for her for many reasons.  

Our Maternity photo shoot done by Vince and Mades Cruz

   As you have seen we did a New Born shoot for our friends Vince and Mades. We thought it would be a good idea to have them do one of our maternity shoot, Ashley's mother will be taking some soon. So here is almost every photograph from the 3 rolls of film, my very talented friend captured.  We had a great time and it would be fun to do a shoot every year with Vince and Mades.  

To contact Vince and Mades for photographs



Michelle and Warren

     A little less than a year ago Warren's sister in law contacted me about a group photo of the three brothers for a birthday present for their mother.  Needless to say it was one of those fun, goofy and easy photo shoots.  Three brothers? come on, it was full of laughs, which is something I always love.  A few months later Warrens girlfriend contacted me for graduation photos.  She Graduated from Cal Poly if I remember correctly?  Well the other day I was able to have the honor to photograph their Engagement session!  I love having returning clients, and I can tell when they will be life long clients! I am very grateful when people see what I do and appreciate it.

For my family

    This blog post is for my family members in the mid-west, who I don't get to see very often.  Here is a visual update on everything for you guys.  Here are a few photos, We just did our first of two maternity sessions and my photo friend should have the rolls of film back soon.  Next we are heading to Lake Tahoe in late January.

   Some of these where up in Big Sur Cali, some down south in Santa Barbara.  Big Sur is a wonderful place to go and next time any of you all come out here, we are going!

Halloween, Big Sur and thanksgiving.  Yeah thats a cliff Lucy and I are standing on, above a waterfall.  Mom and Lucy on Hallows eve, grandpa and Lucy building stuff...


    For the fist time in years you will be seeing me use logos, and not only that, new logos.  The girlfriend thought it would be a good idea to write a blog post about us rebranding these past few months.  Like most things she is usually right. So here it goes.  It has taken me years of hard work to get where I am.  Countless nights, thousands of hours shooting, developing film and prints in the dark room, working under the best photographers I could find in the area. 


    I am a film photographer, I photograph people, that is what I do, that is who I am.  Years ago I figured out they way I can photograph weddings without wanting to kill myself.  I have turned that into a brand, with the help of my lady I have been able to pretty much turn that into a team.  Ashley is in charge of hair make up most the time, styling.   She pretty much holds everything together for me.  We decided it was time to rebrand.  I found my style years ago and I have fine tuned it and I'm not changing it. 

   So here are the new logos you will be seeing from me.  Designed by Clint Darby a extremely talented graphic design artist.  Sometimes in life you need to hire a professional, not a friend with a camera, not a friend who kinda knows design, but a true professional.


The Film came in!!!

   I was so excited to download these scans of film of baby Cruz.  Yes, I know I already uploaded the blog with Donavan, but those were BTS and digital (eww).  I loved working with this camera, The frames were almost perfect, I almost didn't have to edit at all.  Be warned I am about to over load you with photographs.

The Cruz baby

     Donavan Cruz entered this world 6 weeks early.  This week he should of just decided to come on out.  Ashley and I met up with Vince and his wonderful wife Mades.  We all became friends a little over nine months ago, and from moment one of meeting in person we hit it off.  I called Vince because I found him on Craig's list selling some film that had just been discontinued.  Sure enough about three months later we were still in contact and Ashley and I had invited them up for a fun shoot we had planned out in Big Sur.

    The photos here are a mix of myself, Vince, and Ashley shooting some BTS.  It was truly great to see my friends and photograph their beautiful boy.  Some of these shots are just for fun.

The Pardos

    A few months ago Ashley came to me and said "there is this really cool girl I saw today with blue hair."  So next time we went into her work ( I won't say for her privacy) I walked up to her, gave her our card and told her we would love to work with her.  Maybe a month or so later we got in contact and set this shoot up two days out.  Samantha and Justin are very much newly weds yet they had a photographer they know and trust do their actual wedding.  They were more than happy to do this with us.

Janice and Teddy Darby

     It has been a few weeks since I have posted on the blog.  I have been wanting to photograph my girlfriends parents for some time now.  Like most last minute photo shoots they end up being some of the best.  With two rolls of film (16 frames each) I was able to get a wonderful amount of usable photographs.  I love these two very much and they are truly wonderful people for many different reasons.  

     Looking at these two I see years of love, raising a family of three wonderful children, one of which is my girlfriend who means the world to me and for that I am extremely grateful.  Of course Ashley did the hair, make up and posing and Lucy, not only the best side kick ever but a wonderful assistant and second shooter.

||| Pink Blossom Salon|||

    A while ago, Kristi the owner of Pink Blossom Salon and I started collaborating together and we have a few shoots lined up!  Wonderful woman and wonderful Salon.  Here is a little something from a last min shoot that we put together.  It is extremely difficult to find people to work with that you completely trust and flow with.  I am happy to say that Kristi is one of those few people that I do.  I love it when I am able to photograph in medium format film!


|||Senior Portraits|||

    Life has been a little crazy for me as of late, but to not get too personal just yet, I have basically just been working and taking photos, a good amount of "Senior Portraits"  which took me a while to figure out how I wanted to do them.  I wanted to do them just like I do everything else.  More of a "life style shoot", or a "model shoot" if you will.  It has been fun and kinda unique on the students I have been booking.  All of them great young adults in their own way. Yet just like the weddings I photograph I have to have their trust and everything turns out great!  So here is a recap of the students I have been working with.

||| The Davis Wedding |||

   For this blog post I have some of my favorite photographs for "The Davis Wedding"  I made sure yo bring one roll of film for this beautiful couple.  One roll of film, with this camera and this type of film leaves me with 16 frames available to me, so every shot counts.  Jessica and Corey, thank you. Thank you for choosing me.  When I finally had the pleasure to meet Corey he said to me "It was very important to Jessica that you are our photographer"  Moments like those make all this worth it, this is a very cut throat industry, and I am not a cut throat person.  I care about my clients, I care that they are happy and that they love their photographs from their once in a lifetime day.  So here you go, here are a few photographs from the one roll of film I took with me, of course I shot digital too and I have those for Jessica and Corey as well, but these are my favorites. This is how I photograph best.

What have I been up to?

    The last month has been full of ups and downs for me,  I lost my job, I went camping, I have been photographing a lot of senior, booking weddings, I have been cycling like crazy, eating healthy and losing weight.  Of course I am on the hunt for a new career on top of taking photographs.  So here are some photographs from everything I have been up to.

    We went camping, it was nice to get away, it wasn't nearly long enough or far away enough.  Its funny to me how we all chose to live our lives.  Camping, getting away from our cell phones always helps me to center myself again.  If I could one day live in a nice cabin in the woods or next to a lake I would. Now the Baldwin wedding. Jake Baldwin has always been someone I considered a friend and it was great to be chosen to photograph their wedding.

    A few months ago Jessica Galloway, who was soon to be Mrs. Davis hired me out to photograph their wedding.  They only needed us for a few hours out of the day, which was a first for me and the kiss was to be at high noon, which is the worst time of the day to photograph.  Even though I would always choose film given the budget I was almost forced to due to the time of day and I couldn't be happier.  Color film over exposed is always beautiful. 

     I am going to upload a Davis Wedding blog, but here is a little something for you, after all this blog post is about what I have been up to over the past month after losing my job.
