“Taking pictures is like tiptoeing into the kitchen late at night and stealing Oreo cookies.” Diane Arbus
Hello, my name is Andrea Matthies, owner and lead story creator at Unscripted Photos. I am a Valley Center Editorial + Lifestyle Photographer who specializes in photo-journalistic style image capture. At the end of the day, my goal is to create a beautiful story, whether it be of who you are through portraiture, or of your special event.
I live in beautiful Valley Center with my family and enjoy the serenity of our rural neighborhood. In my free time, I play drums and sing in a band with my husband (he says it’s our expensive hobby, but it’s worth it).
I also love to shoot film (yes, film) and I continually experiment with different aspects of photography. My current obsession has been with a 4x5 large format film camera as well as my medium format camera. Additionally, I love developing and printing the film as it is such a serene and peaceful process.
