Whether your aesthetic is coastal, traditional, midcentury, romanticism, farmhouse, rustic, boho, or eclectic you can find something here to bring a comforting vibe to any room.
Each photograph in this shop is personally captured by me to share with you from sights I see living in the spectacularly scenic Monterey Bay Area of California and the places I travel to.
Each print is printed using eco-friendly processes on professional photo papers so that you always receive the longest lasting and highest quality photographic prints available.

I offer ready-to-frame prints as well as ready to hang options including mounted prints, canvas, metal, and acrylic surfaces.
I prefer to offer physical prints to ensure you the highest quality product. However, due to international shipping challenges outside the North American Continent, I do offer prints in digital format for the convenience of international shoppers or if you need it fast.

Having an Etsy shop to share my art with you with has been a dream of mine for a long time. This shop was originally launched in 2014 but then has sat dormant since. In life, especially as a photographer, "timing is everything". The timing wasn't right then but it is now!

Wondrous Moments Artistically Painted With Light & Lens

About Waves and Wonders:
Amy Medina is the woman behind Waves and Wonders.
In 2011, Amy's husband gave her a Nikon as a Christmas present and a seat in a beginners course in photography where she learned photography is "painting with light". That sparked a new passion that still grows stronger by the day.

​As a landscape and nature photographer, Amy has a keen eye to spot beauty around her, sometimes in the things others miss in a busy life.
She is fascinated by the energy of ocean waves, loves to chase sunsets, and has a knack for spotting and capturing exquisite light. She has a love for wildlife and a heart for conservation.

​A 6th generation native of California, she has photographed many iconic places and hidden gems, especially near her home in the Monterey Bay area. Through her photos, Amy hopes to inspire the same awe she feels on location and invites you into her "happy place" and stand next to her while she witnesses and captures God's wonders one moment at a time. In her words, "I want people to be able to feel transported into my photos for a momentary pause and feel the peace and appreciation I feel in the moments I capture".

​Amy is a lifelong artist. Her mother once said, "she was born with a paintbrush in her hand". She is fluent in many artistic mediums including china painting, mural painting, cake decorating, sewing, and had a 20-year career in the face and body painting industry as an artist and instructor both in Southern California and in the Central Coast/Bay Area. While Amy still loves to paint, she now mostly wields a camera to pour out her inspiration. Her painting background has influenced her photography style towards painterly.

A note from Amy
First of all, thank you for taking the time to visit my shop. It means a lot to me that you are here.
Art has always been part of my life.
​As just a young girl I realized that it was a gift to see things in unique ways and render them in the form of art. God has given me an eye for beauty, a creative mind & an adventurous spirit.
Communicating through my camera has become part of my very eclectic career as an artist. I rarely leave home without my camera, fearing I will miss something awe-inspiring or an opportunity to just document an ordinary miracle. ( the FOMO is real! )
I'm a sunset chaser, a wave watcher & a wonder seeker.
Photography has enabled me to connect with people through images and to understand and document life in an evocative way. Sometimes these are beautiful images and sometimes they are dramatic but they always tell a story. I enjoy creating unique, one-of-a-kind fine art that is both timeless and authentic. Occasionally I love to add some whimsey. I also enjoy capturing the exquisite beauty of God’s creation, whether it be landscapes or wildlife.
The original fine art photography I offer is about creating a personal, comforting vibe in your living or workspace. My style can range from classic to creative but is always full of beautiful light, emotion & rich tones. I get a lot of inspiration from art created from the Romanticism Era and you may detect that feel in a lot of my work.
Again, thank you for allowing me the privilege of sharing with you.
Sincerely, Amy

"I hope that my work will encourage self-expression in others and stimulate the search for beauty and creative excitement in the great world around us." -Ansel Adams

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Custom orders are always welcome!

Please see the "Ready to hang" section in my shop for available options:
https://www.etsy.com/shop/WavesAndWondersPhoto?ref=seller-platform-mcnav§ion_id=15501948

If you need a printing medium or print in a size that is not listed or if you have any other special requests, please feel free to contact me.

Here are some examples of customizations you can request:

✧ Black and White or Sepia version of a color print
✧ White border added
✧ Alternative sizing and crop such as ISO print sizes, square and panoramic crops, depending on the image.
✧ Canvas Wrap, Acrylic and Wood prints
✧ Matting on images up to 8x10
✧ framing options

Depending on the image not all customizations can be done but I'll try!

How can I get this framed?

Affordable high quality can be found at large craft stores like Micheal's or Target and online at Amazon, Framebridge, Pottery Barn and IKEA.

What kind of paper do you print on?

I print on luster photo paper. Luster gives all of the beautifully saturated colors of a glossy but doesn't have the glare and comes in a matte finish that is fingerprint resistant. Lustre photo paper is the standard when it comes to framed prints.

Custom and personalized orders

It's a very rare occurrence, but if your artwork is damaged in shipping please contact me within 7 days of delivery and provide photos of the damage and I'll replace your artwork free of charge.

What size is the print in your example?

Most of the samples shown are graphic representations. I always suggest choosing a size based on your specific needs & the space you'd like to fill.

Do Your Prints Come with a Border?

No, they are printed from edge to edge. If you need an edge, please message me and I can do customization.

Custom and personalized orders

YES! I don't include invoices in the shipments so the recipient will not see any pricing information.
I can also include a gift note. just message me when you order.

Do you offer digital downloads?

Yes, Please see the digital download section of my shop for that customizing option.

Custom and personalized orders

Yes! Sign up for my mailing list (link in my shop announcement) and get a code for 10% off one order.
Also, since I'm newly relaunching this shop, I'm offering free US shipping.

Custom and personalized orders

Please note that I color calibrate my monitor and follow industry standard professional practices to ensure color fidelity from my screen to print. That said, computer and phone screens are backlit and each individual screen has its own color settings, so as with ANY online order, some slight variation in color may occur from what clients see on screen vs. in print. However, this difference should be very slight if anything. Given that I can't color calibrate or control every client's screen who orders from me, this is not an acceptable reason for returns, and I cannot be held responsible for such variations.
