Kyle & Molly DIY wedding in Palm Springs


We are Tiffani Matsuura and Ellie Fuqua: sisters, best friends, principal photographers, and the founders of Sun & Sparrow Photography. Born and raised in Southern California, we reside in the greater Los Angeles area. While we share many things, the greatest passion we share is our love of family and fine art photography for weddings, engagements, maternity, newborns and so much more. When we’re not capturing life’s most beautiful moments, we are currently growing our own families in Los Angeles.

When a client hires Sun & Sparrow, they are hiring our team for our ability to tell their unique story through our lenses in fine art photography. We are inspired by your truest forms of love in moments that are candid and organic. We also love creating unique naturally inspired images that transport you. One of the most important parts of our process is to get to know you as a couple or family. We want you to feel comfortable and confident in our artistry, so that you can reveal your natural love to shine in its own best light. Being fine art photographers means that we take the time to be inspired and create a beautiful story of your love. Our inspiration and philosophy behind photographing comes from admiring love. Loving others is what makes our whole lives worthwhile. It is our team’s and heart’s desire to capture each and every one of your intimate moments to share with your loved ones for generations to come. We have the very esteemed privilege of gifting sweet moments back for you to share for lifetimes.

Tiffani & Ellie, Sun & Sparrow Photography



In a fast-paced world saturated with photography, there are people who click and there are people who capture. With over seven years of experience, we aim to create imagery that emotes timelessness and whimsy. Our inspiration and philosophy comes from admiring love in action and commitment to family. We love to honor growing families and want we honor YOU by documenting it through inspired photography. Since the beginning of our careers in 2009, we have loved telling the stories of many families and couples by capturing some beautifully romantic life-moments.

Storytelling is thoughtful and carefully crafted by listening to our client’s vision, observing candid moments and quickly jumping on key events around us. We believe that special moments deserve to be captured beautifully and that special events must be documented with vision. All of life can be special, but it’s those spectacular ones that inspire us. We are thrilled that we get to be a part of so many beautiful wedding days and growing family moments. When we began to photograph weddings, we quickly fell in love with the immense amount of pure, joyous love. We realized how important the beautiful sacred moment of committing to love is and ran head-on to support love, in the making. In addition to photographing engagements and weddings, we love photographing growing families and babies. We never cease to be in awe of how much LOVE we get to witness!!

Our Sun & Sparrow team is devoted to tell your story through the eyes of love, whether it be an engagement, wedding, family session, maternity, or newborn. We strive to make you feel cherished, loved, and beautiful no matter what your special occasion. It is our hope to connect and develop authentic relationships with you to help inspire your vision and style for your photography. We specialize in the art of natural light and natural beauty using real environments and real people. It is our biggest hope and dream in every session to allow the most special and lasting moments to shine through. We feel so lucky to be able to capture it all for you.

From editing a single artistic still or an entire film, all of our images are perfected for the utmost quality and elegance to ensure you fall in love with every moment.
