I am seriously honored that you would care enough to want to get to know me better. I'll do my best to give you a broad overview of who I am, but it would be much more fun to get to know each other over a coffee or glass of wine (depending on what side of noon, we're on). If you'd rather chat in person as well, feel free to contact me here. If you want to keep reading, enjoy!
I'm Tony Wodarck. I am a husband, a father, a digital marketing director at Hurley (yes, dream job), a photographer, an aspiring chef and aspiring wine sommelier. In my free time (yes, kind of a joke) I also like to surf, garden, travel, and hang out with my friends. I'm obsessed with coffee, pizza, wine, popcorn and new recipes. I have a monthly newsletter where I share all of those fun things, which you can subscribe to at the bottom of this site. Trust me, it's worth it.
After having Sicily and moving with my wife to San Juan Capistrano, I've realized the importance of our local community. This has led me to give back to my favorite local charities. 25% of the profits I make from photography gets donated in your name to the charity of your choice. I have one organization I love and recommend, The Ecology Center, which teaches people how to live a sustainable lifestyle. You can read all about that below.
I love connecting with new people and sharing in huge milestones. If you are looking for a photographer for your big day, your first-born, your amazing family, your wild elopement, whatever it may be. Hit me up here.
I look forward to working with you. Please hit the button below to get in touch.
Part of why I love photography is it allows me to better connect with our local community. I get to meet more people and see the impact that we can all have in each other's lives by working together for a better future. I wanted to find areas where I could help give back and continue to improve the amazing things happening around our area, especially now that I have my first daughter, Sicily.
I currently work closely with The Ecology Center in San Juan Capistrano, CA. The Ecology Center is a non-profit ecological oasis a mile down the street from our house. They work to educate kids and adults about living a sustainable lifestyle through growing your own food, water conservation, how your diet impacts our ecological footprint and how to create and buy from local artisans to limit our impact on this planet. I truly love the people that work there and the mission they have. I personally donate my photography services to them and I recommend all of my clients to both visit The Ecology Center and help donate to their cause.
However, I know there are tons of other incredible charities out there in the world. The 25% of profits we donate should represent the passions you have as well. That is why I am open to donating to any charity you are interested as long as they are a registered 501c3. Please let me know what you are passionate about, and let's help build this community together!
Yes, of course. NatGeo, is that you? I love to travel and capture our journey in a photojournalistic style as well as EAT! I am looking for more opportunities to photograph restaurants & food as well as local events and establishments. Please contact me here and let’s get started!

Photography is a side-gig for me, which allows me to give back to our local community. Upon payment of your session, I will take 25% of the profits and donate that in your name through the agreed upon charity. Read more here.
Yes, 25 miles of travel is included in my fees. I’m happy to go as far as you want though. Let’s chat soon.
I will send you a downloadable gallery of all the final edited images. I will confirm receipt with you upon sending and double-check you are satisfied. I also archive all photographs I shoot. However, I am not responsible for your images after I confirm delivery. If for some reason your computer crashes, you lose the files, etc. please contact me. I am not responsible for your catastrophe, but I want to help. A $50 fee will be charged for retrieval of images after one year. This pays for the cost of storage, organization and delivery.
In short, no. The final files you receive are corrected with my unique eye and assure the quality and look associated with my personal brand.
I accept cash, credit cards, PayPal and bank transfers. 50% is required up front to lock in your date for weddings. Final total payment is due in full at the beginning of our scheduled session.
Of course! Want to book me for your engagement photos, rehearsal dinner, ceremony & reception? We can package up everything and save you some money.
