meet Third Cactus Creative

Hi! I'm Sunnie and I'm one half of Third Cactus Creative! Guillermo and I met in a film class in college. We combined our businesses, fell in love with shooting weddings and elopements, and haven't looked back since. Photography is my passion, and I love the experience of meeting couples and capturing their story :) My other passions include traveling, going to music festivals with friends and my amazing bf Guillermo, spending too much money on succulents, and eating all the vegan food I can find- especially Pad Thai. 

My name is Guillermo Lopez and I stumbled upon photography after buying a camera to take photos with my friends every night after school. I’m detail oriented and really enjoy the technical aspects of photography. I own an embarrassingly large collection of cameras and also have many old Polaroid Land cameras. I choose to shoot weddings and engagements because I enjoy the responsibility. I know how important and once in a lifetime your wedding day is and I do my best to creatively capture all the details of the day so you can relive it for years and years to come. Besides photography I love music, Chipotle burritos, our cat Forrest, and Mint Chocolate Ice Cream. I sincerely hope we get the chance to meet and work together!

What Clients are raving about


BOOK THEM. No...seriously...BOOK THEM. I spoke to at least 8 other photographers before choosing. Sunnie had a demeanor which was brighter than her name, when we advised what we were looking for, she was patient and open. Guillermo was attentive and focused while capturing exactly what we needed and when it comes down to it...their photos have the same honey glow as my memories. Beautiful & soulful job. HIRE THESE TWO.

Shooting with Sunnie and Guillermo was so fun, natural, and easy. As somebody who typically gets awkward behind the camera, they really eased any nerves I may have had! And not only that they have a great instinct for setting up raw, emotional photos between couples - nothing too posey or forced. I love the photos - and the editing - but I also really, really enjoyed the experience of shooting. It's something I look back on really fondly, romantic moments with my s/o while we were posing for photos, lots of laughs and kisses - THESE are the sweet moments that Sunnie and Guillermo know how to capture!

Sunnie and Guillermo are an amazingly talented couple. We throughly enjoyed our day with them and felt like they really wanted to get to know us as a couple. We were like friends by the end of it! 
Not a natural couple in front of the camera we were put at ease. The photos produced are above and beyond anything we could have imagined. They shared with us some beautiful places and our photos are out of this world. We will cherish the photos and the memory of our day for a long time. I would recommend to anyone.
