Hi, Im Trevor

Hey Guys! Thank you so much for checking out my site!

My name’s Trevor Axelson, and I am a Southern California photographer from San Diego! I recently got married this June to the most amazing girl in the whole world, Rachel!

I started photography a few years ago out at Starlight Circle in Santee! I had this amazing idea that a ton of people would tip me if I offered to take their photos in front of the entrance with a nice camera, so I just went for it! I borrowed my friend’s camera, bought a tripod, YouTubed how to pose families, and just stood out there yelling “free photos!” and it worked! I made enough money to buy my whole family and myself some Christmas presents! After that, I started booking super, super cheap sessions.

Eventually, I learned that I needed help and reached out to a few Facebook groups and ended up meeting some other photographers I hold in high-esteem who told me the hard truth, that my photos sucked and then showed me what I needed to fix, what gear to buy, how to market, and how to run a wedding as the lead photographer… literally all the tools of the trade they know! Without them I never would be where I’m at with my photos! So thank you guys!

Fast forward to August 2022, I quit my day job and am pursuing photography as my full time career!

My vision for this business is to be THE photographer for you. I want to build relationships with every client that grows past just one milestone in your life! I want to be there for you and your family, not just for one life event, but from High-school, to the proposal, your wedding, maternity, and family photos, then repeat with your kids! I want every client that shoots with me to start as a client in the beginning of your session and leave as a friend. I truly believe that for this to be a success it’s not about the money, but about the relationships I build!

And with that I’m done! haha!
