Portrait Builders is portrait photography by Ralph Vazquez.  I was born and raised in Santa Ana, California.  I love food, nature, napping and a good movie. I also enjoy landscape photography and if you're interested click on through and check out some of my work.  I'm addicted to searching and buying old film cameras. My two favorites finds were a SX-70 Land Camera and Bessa Voigtländer folding camera from the 30's .  Black + white, film photography was my first love and I still enjoy using it in my engagements and wedding photos.  I find joy in photographing life's moments big and small, especially in Weddings.  This joy is what drives my passion for my business.


Portrait Builders' goal is to make beautiful portraits that will last a lifetime. We live in a digital world but we love photo prints.  Nothing make us happier than delivering something tangible...a good old photo album.  Our clients receive private online galleries, wide variety of products to choose from, custom album design and exceptional service every time.  We love our photos and we know you will too. Portraiture is also available to schools, dance studios, and youth sporting leagues. Visit our blog and keep up-to-date on the latest shoots.
