We are Rachel Krauss and Jonathan Sontag, aka The Sundays. Our shared passion for art and design gave birth to The Sunday Saloon, a boutique photography and cinematography studio with a stylized directorial approach. We're currently based on the California Central Coast, but we sure do love to travel!
We were married on a Sunday, our last name means Sunday in German, and we covet all things western, like saloons and horses and cowboy boots… but our hearts were molded by the folky rock of the 70's our parents raised us on. As we began making art together, we edited and posted our own wedding video and, who would have known, fate came a-knocking at our door. Some really great folks saw the video and asked us to film their wedding (thanks Holly and Ben!). After booking up a year full of wedding movies and commercial video/photo work, we quit our day jobs and rode off into the sunset.
After growing our boutique business into a video studio over the course of a few years, we decided to take on positions for a couple clients who hired us in the past. Even though we both have day jobs, we still love finding the time to take photos for portrait sessions with couples and families. Let us know if we can help!
