Randy creates memories, timeless images documenting candid moments often elusive on wedding days. He has been featured at the Vorpal Gallery in San Francisco, Photo District News (PDN) and San Francisco Magazine among other publications.
Randy studied anthropology and ethnographic filmmaking at Cal, an endeavor that helped to build his attentive style. An important thing about being a successful wedding photographer is the ability to put people at ease and to have them be comfortable with the process and experience. Years in the wine industry and restaurant world, helped to make him a good listener, a patient observer, a "people person."
As a hobby, Randy has often documented internationally renowned musicians such as Michael Hedges, John Fahey, Will Ackerman and many others. His extensive collection of videos can be seen on YouTube. Randy, his partner/wife Joyce Perlman, and basenji Tucker, divide their time between San Francisco and the coastal community of Mendocino, California. Together they have shot more than 500 weddings.
We are located in San Francisco and Mendocino (northern California) and generally do not charge travel fees.
We have been shooting wedding since 2001 and I have shot around 500 weddings as the lead.
Packages range greatly from elopements to large weddings. Average larger weddings are 6 hours $4200.
We meet in San Francisco, Mendocino, and on Skype or Zoom.
I have taken a workshop over a period of 6 months with Anna Kuperburg.
