Madonna Inn photo sessions

The Madonna Inn is one of my favorite venues to photograph on the whole central coast. From the whimsically decorated individual rooms, to the ornate restaurant and ballroom, it really has character in every detail. My clients embrace the over the top gaudy charm the Madonna Inn provides so photos there are never boring.
The atmosphere has a inherently romantic feeling. Just lifting a famous Madonna Inn goblet, you could imagine generations of visitors cozied in pink leather booths and dancing tenderly to a dreamy live band in A-line dresses and dinner jackets. Say hello to the Madonna Inn photo sessions.

I’ve worked at the Madonna inn dozens of times and I still get excited when I step on the property. I manage to find fresh spots or visit new rooms every time. I’ve been in almost every room by now.

Because of my love for this magical place, I’m now offering Madonna Inn photo sessions!

Besides having a colorful history filled with celebrity, the Madonna Inn is just the epitome of delightful kitsch. There’s nothing in the world like it. It’s a marvelous Disneyland-Esque haven for eccentric visitors who aren’t afraid of pink.

Steps to your Madonna Inn photo session:

  1. Shoot me an email detailing all your Madonna Inn photo fantasies. Send me your inspo, ideas, and the vibes you wanna create. We will talk rooms, costume changes, props, lighing ect.
  2. We will choose a date, get that proposal signed, and then you’ll book your ideal Madonna Inn room.
  3. I will create a mood board and send you over tips to making your session perfect. (BONUS- If you’re not local to the SLO area, I can also help you with things to do and restaurants to visit while in town.)
  4. The date comes, you have a rad session and one week later your gallery will arrive with your images!
