Aloha and welcome!

My name is Emily (Ross) Benedetto. I was born on the beautiful island of Maui and raised in the amazing San Clemente, CA. This has created me into an adventurous and artistic individual who's greatly inspired by the ocean and the One who created it. It's truly an honor to capture how beautiful our creation is!


Along with photography, my husband and I are VERY involved in missions and ministry. In addition to photos, I work with a non-profit called Christian Surfers United States. My role is to plan events and organize the logistics of conferences we host. I also get to travel to many countries and further relationships between the surf communities around the world by sharing the love of Jesus! My husband and I are so blessed to be on the path that we are on and it is my goal to also shoot weddings in different countries. At the top of that list? Argentina. My husband's home-country:)

Client experience is everything to me! I love to feel like we're friends after we work together! I put my heart and soul into my photos and I love capturing a bit of your story for you to enjoy forever. If I get the pleasure of working with you, you might expect me to take a polaroid selfie of us for my collection:)
