"He's the best photographer in the world." -my Mom.
We are gonna have a good time.
I think of all of my future clients as friends that I haven't yet met, and I enjoy the entire process of cultivating those new relationships from the first consult all the way to the final product and beyond. Being trusted to capture once in a lifetime moments is a huge responsibility, but I honestly love the unique challenges that every shoot presents. The most rewarding thing is the feeling I get when a client's eyes light up after seeing an image or film that I have created, and knowing that they will treasure it for decades to come. My job is to immortalize a moment in time and I believe the experience should be an incredibly fun one for everyone involved.
I shoot around 40 weddings a year in addition to events, portraits, family sessions, seniors, newborns, and fashion. I love being able to be a part of all the happy memories that I get to see through my lens. I love shooting natural light portraits and landscapes as well, and always bring my camera with whenever I go adventuring to find epic new locations for photos.
Travel is another fantastic perk of my job. I love being able to be in a new place every weekend. I do mostly Southern California venues, but I have been known to take a road trip or hop on a plane to shoot a destination wedding. Making the day into an adventure and sharing it with my clients is always amazing.
On a personal note, I'm a pretty big nerd. I love anything Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Harry Potter, or Lord of the Rings. I grew up in the 80's and 90's, so I have a huge love for anything in that time period. I'm also a big movie buff and an avid reader. I love stories, art, and creativity in all forms.
I love going out and grabbing a drink or meal with new potential clients to hang out and get to know each other. I'm really great at creating and customizing packages to fit anyone's needs and budget. Shoot me an email, call, or text if you'd like to set up a consultation in person or on Skype or FaceTime!
I look forward to getting to know you and capturing your memories!
All the best,

After shooting a wedding in Washington I hit the beach to catch this sunset
