SOPHISTICATED. VIBRANT. PHOTOGRAPHY & VIDEO.

Here’s the story

Our clients mean the world to us. 

We’ve built relationships with small businesses, large corporations, and private clientele for nearly a decade. And, by understanding the vision of our clients, we continually create photography and videography that excites and compels a much larger audience.  

There is a relationship between the client, us, and the camera that we take seriously. We’re here to bring out the best in the people we work with and to make sure we deliver something that creatively represents who they are and what they do.

Our work includes corporate, commercial, events, editorial, and wedding photography and videography.  

Sophisticated. Vibrant. Beautiful. Anything less won’t do.

About

"It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see." - Henry David Thoreau

David Tosti

Founder | Photographer

"For me, photography is about connecting with people and communicating a clear vision of who they are and what they are about. Every client matters and I feel extremely grateful to know them."

David Tosti fell in love with taking pictures at age five, when he first picked up his wooden Disney camera. He immediately knew there was magic in documenting, and being from Southern California, he was surrounded by beauty and inspiration. He went on to study photography, which began his journey to mastering the craft. His role as the lead singer and songwriter for the band, PAX217 invigorated his love for photography as he continued to document his adventures. After 11 years of life on the road, he began Tosti Studios to connect with all types of people through photography and videography.

David’s background in music inspires his images – there is a pulse and rhythm to life that he taps into with his photographs.  Gratitude and passion drive all aspects of his work. His commercial and corporate photography and video demonstrates his versatility and his success in giving clients greater creative options for professional marketing. As a leading luxury, fashion and wedding photographer, his work has been featured in Riviera Magazine, Ceremony Magazine, Newport Beach magazine, Laguna Beach Magazine and popular blogs such as Junebug Weddings. His energy and inspiration is contagious. He has shot weddings all over the world, and he is known for his artistic eye and creative style used to produce stunning images. David’s mission is simple, “I love people. My favorite thing on planet earth is to connect with others. My goal…to extract the best out of those I work with.” 

David lives in Laguna Beach, Ca. with his children Rocco and Sophia.

  • Do you know what David brings to a shoot –the rare, invaluable, beautiful thing that only a few can bring? Confidence. Not his, yours. With David you know that he’ll capture something, maybe even something you didn’t think was possible, and that’s why a photo can be so powerful.

  • David is a true artist, not just a photo snapper. He tunes in fast to your vision and adds his own creative flair to really pull it off. I’d recommend him highly. A true pro.

  • David Tosti did an amazing job coordinating our video production for our Projected Growth Consulting website. It was the first time for me to go through the process and David helped a great deal with creative direction, helping me be more comfortable in front of the camera and the overall end product. I am excited to collaborate with David again in the near future! Tosti Studios was very professional and produced a high quality video for us.

Stories & Thoughts

By David

Stuck in a Moment…In Paris

On my way home from photographing a few weddings in Italy in 2012, I was “given the opportunity” to stay at the Paris airport from 9pm to 10am the following morning. Flights had been cancelled (as that’s how the French often roll, they go on strike, a lot). I had a choice to make: Sit in the airport and try to sleep on the floor OR go see the city of Paris.
