I do not follow a checklist of pre-determined poses that reflect who I want you to be for the camera. You are not mannequins. You are living, breathing, energetic and vibrant beings. We work together to find genuine sincerity in every moment. I will direct you through the portrait session in a way that draws out your unique personality while also conveying an artful aesthetic.
Mentors and peers describe my work as 'straddling the cinematic and photojournalism genre.' I look to frame you in both light and shadow. It is in our everyday life, and should be a central character in your story. It creates mood, depth, nuance, passion, mystery, contrast and harmony - just as in real life.
I'm located in Downtown Los Angeles, and charge travel fees for travel outside of Southern California.
I typically photograph around 24 weddings per year, I have around 150 weddings as the main photographer
Authentic wedding photojournalism with a cinematic look and feel. Portrait sessions have a pinch of direction, but let the bride and groom make the moment their own before I begin shooting, which allows the photography and the energy to be authentic.
8 hour coverage with delivery of 300 images in digital format, fully retouched, in an online gallery and download. In-person meeting if possible before you commit to my services, and another meeting if necessary before the wedding date. Engagement shoots, wedding albums, second shooters, videography referrals are all a part of my service. Pricing starts at $3200 for 8 hours.
Available by Skype or in person.
