About Cady

My name is Cady Connelly, and I am a photographer on the central coast of California. I have always had a passion for photography, and I have been very fortunate to gain some amazing experience pursuing my dream. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Commercial Photography from the Brooks Institute in 2008. In addition to my schooling, I interned with Mark Leibowitz Photography where I had the opportunity to assist on several high-end shoots including a photo shoot for Glamour Magazine. The summer after I graduated I spent working for Jose Villa Photography and Allyson Magda Photography, two of the premier wedding photographers in the world.

I share my life with my husband Russ and our three sons -Ben, Ivan, and Johnny. They teach me new things every day and I’m so thankful to be apart of their lives.

I hope you enjoy looking at my site, and I hope that my experience and passion can help you with any of your photography needs.

Philosophy and Pricing

“You never know when you’ll walk by a picture.  Always be ready”. -Bob Smith (Brooks Institute of Photography)


Your wedding day will be one of the most important days of your life; no matter the weather or the unexpected happenings.  Being able to share in the memories that make up your wedding day is such an privilege to me.  My philosophy on wedding photography is that it should not take over the day, but rather showcase your joy.  Spending time with your new spouse, family and friends is paramount on your wedding day.  I believe in helping my clients get the most out of their wedding day while capturing timeless portraits and photojournalistic candids.


Wedding day coverage starts at $3,000.  Contact the studio below for more information.

  • What is the best way to get in touch?  -Email or calling are quickest for me to check, therefore I always recommend this method.
  • How do we secure our date?  -Once your contract is signed and retainer is paid we are set!
  • How long before we get to see our photographs?  -I send out a sneak peek within a week of the wedding.  The rest will be released on your private online gallery within 4-6 weeks.
  • Do you have an assistant or second shooter?  -I bring an assistant to all weddings over 80 guests.  This is a photographer who can assist me, and sometimes you, with all types of wedding day needs.  They also shoot lots of candids throughout the day.  A second shooter is different in that they have a higher level of photography experience and/or their own photography business.  They also specialize in wedding photography.  Second shooters are recommended only for very large weddings and sometimes for certain unique photo sessions on the wedding day.
  • Do you have business insurance? -Absolutely, yes!
  • How long have you been photographing weddings? -I started photographing weddings in photography school, in all film, and then began assisting after I graduated.  I have been assisting, editing, album designing, and photographing weddings for 10 years.
