Who We Are

We are the Westlunds! 

We are a husband and wife team of photographers based out of San Diego, California. Our personalities are a mix of artists and adventurers who found true love behind the camera. Through our work we are vivid story-tellers, capturing moments in a photojournalistic and emotional way and bringing to life the special memories and details of a wedding day. One of our greatest priorities is getting to know each couple we work with in order to anticipate and truly capture their unique character and personality. We know how important these adventurous times are and we aim to capture the energy and spirit of love in our photographs and have a dang good time doing it!


I’m Phil! Some call me Flip, some call me Philly cheesesteak. When I am not capturing your big day I find myself enjoying baseball games and searching for the best comedy because what is better than laughter? Nothing, nada, zilch. San Diego has been so incredible to Aubrey and I and getting to put my skills to work and capture loving events is truly one of the most fullfilling parts of life. Blood, sweat, and tears go into my work and I love (almost) every minute of it. Follow me @phillip_westlund

I’m Aubrey! I love animals, cooking without a recipe, and constantly rearranging my home. I always have to have a new project to work on and lately that’s been rekindling my love of film photography and being in the darkroom. I adore wedding photography because of the personal connections we get to make with our couples. There’s nothing more special than being there with you to help you fluff your dress, to witnessing your first moments as husband and wife, to crying with you during your dad’s speech.

You may have known us as ‘Yes, Dear. Studio’.

Through years of capturing weddings, couples, families, and fantastic people we felt as though the name Yes, Dear. Studio was not a fit in regards to who we are and the adventures we love to capture. As Westlund Photography we believe there is an authenticity and genuine quality that connects us with our photography and how we document your big day. Just as we want you to be yourself on your wedding day or during our adventure together, our new name gives us an identity we are proud of and allows us to truly be who we are.
