Wedding Photography Mission Statement

I would describe my style of wedding photography as photojournalistic. While capturing formal portraits of the Bride and Groom are important, I also believe that catching the ambiance of your day and the life-force of your invited guests is of equal priority. With a gentle eye, I will steer your formal photographs to best reflect your personalities, while simultaneously documenting those subtle yet profound candid moments that make up such an important day. I keep a keen watch as the day naturally unfolds so you have a document long after the day has passed you by.

High school introduced me to photography and there I spent my waking hours deep within the dark room. Upon graduating I set off to art school to study Fine Art Photography (2001-2005), where I was introduced to art theory and artist’s studio practices. After college, I flexed my logistical side and worked with art fairs (2004-2012) to share contemporary art to communities in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami, and New York. Soon I transitioned into a small business owner and realized my goal of becoming a full-time photographer. So if you will, find comfort in knowing that art and photography are a part of my physiological make-up and the path I’ve taken shows this. Photography is more than a passion for me, it is the frame in which I have chosen to live my life.

I love documenting special events, and dare I say, I am very good at it. My camera and I stay vigilant throughout your day, which no doubt will have many moving parts, while maintaining an unobtrusive and honest presence. Stay in the moment and I will do the rest.

I offer photography packages that begin at $925. Peruse my portfolio, read my client testimonials, or send an inquiry if you would like to talk more about booking me for your day.
