About Us Page

Wentling's Studio has been your family photographer since 1945. Three generations of our family have been invited into your life to celebrate your family. Dirk Wentling, one of the first award-winning photographers in the SF Bay area to embrace digital technology, has been behind-the-camera since he was 12 years old. Not only can he utilize today's technology and create images above and beyond expectation, he is a recognized expert in the history of photography and portraiture, including lighting, posing, and special effects.

We invite you to visit our online portfolios:
