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.
