Vanguard Head & Heart Photographer

Santa Barbara Photographer Aimeé Paye

Hi! Photography has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. My fondest memory takes me back to a Christmas when I was younger, where I received a gray Canon camera. It was equipped with a wrist strap to be portably carried everywhere. That strap kept my soon-to-be best friend by my side and wherever I went, my camera came along too.

I love the opportunity to meet new people through the shoots and sessions – walking away with new experiences and great stories, while clients receive images of moments frozen in time, capturing a lifetime of self-expression and narrative. Capturing the beauty of this life and my clients is always an honor. 

If you don’t find me behind the camera, I’ll be expanding my knowledge and skill set playing video games. Working in the gaming industry has been a long-time dream of mine, and I want to support the inclusion of Women in the gaming scene. Being a full-time gamer/photographer is my idyllic life goal! I am grateful for these passions; if I’m not behind a controller, I’m behind a camera. I look forward to meeting you and capturing a moment you will cherish forever!
