About Us




When you want the very best...


Creative Images opened in downtown Monterey in 1979 and quickly became the area's most cutting edge portrait studio. Now after 3 decades the studio has become an institution in the area as Monterey's most referred portrait studio. Our studio and gallery are still in their original location at 251 Pearl street in downtown Monterey. We are housed in a historical stone building shared with east village coffee shop [formally Morgan's Coffee] Our beautiful gallery can be viewed from the street any time day or night.


The success of our studio has been achieved by delivering some of the most beautiful wedding images in California. Our clients often express how spectacular their wedding photos are. Our most common complaint is that there are too many great images to pick from. We pay particular attention to the craft and printing of our work, ensuring clients are delivered the finest work available in California.


Your photographer at Creative Images is the area's only Master Photographer, Larry Nordwick. Larry brings to your wedding day a terrific sense of humor, and a wonderful capacity to create unique & stylish images. Larry's work blends the timeless styles of the past with the cutting edge editorial style of today to give clients the best of both worlds. His work has been recognized by his peers as being amongst the best in California.


Our studio managers at Creative Images are Ann & Laurie. Between the two of them they have over 30 years experience at Creative Images. If you have any questions about our services please give them a call and they will be happy to answer your questions.





You can only have your wedding photographed once.


Don't settle for second best.
