dolce vita 

(/ˌdōlCHā ˈvēdə/) a life of heedless pleasure and luxury.




Our mission is to create a one of a kind portrait collection of those milestones in life that can stand the test of time. We are driven by the one of a kind story behind everyone and want to capture it. 

dolce vita specializes in weddings & couples, high school seniors and boudoir portrait.

"Sonja was just what we needed for our wedding day, she was easy going but professional and on the big day she was almost invisible. The shots that she was able to capture of our rainy wedding day are simply amazing, which is saying a lot because we are pretty awkward to photograph and she was soaked! There is so much life in the the photos that every time someone flips through them its like we are all reliving every moment. Loved her and I would recommend her if you are considering. Thank you Sonja for being a perfect match for us, best wishes to you."

"I have worked with Sonja on several occasions, and I cannot say enough good things about her! She did an amazing job on my engagement and wedding photos as well as the photos for my best friend's events. She is wonderful at catching the photos that you want, and she works with you to coordinate time and place for meetings. If I ever have the chance to work with her again in the future, I will definitely take it! If you are looking for a fun, professional, incredible photographer, look no further!"
