My goal is to deliver honest storytelling of your wedding day with several goals in mind - To be genuine, devoted to realism, and faithful to your personalities as an individuals and as a couple. I document the openness you have with each other, your family and friends, and convey a visual message that resonates in your heart.  
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.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

I'm located in just outside of Downtown Los Angeles, and charge travel fees for travel outside of Southern California.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

I typically photograph around 24 weddings per year, I have around 175 weddings as a lead photographer. I also own a second brand called Two Penguins Studio where my associate photographer team shoots around 24 weddings each year.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

Authentic wedding photojournalism with a cinematic look and feel. Portrait sessions have a pinch of direction. My colors are rich, vibrant and bold.

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

8 hour coverage with delivery of 400 individually processed images, a 2 hour engagement session and a wedding album is my most common bundle. I also have a photo booth to help your guests rediscover their inner 5 year old self!

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

I prefer to meet my clients in person at the Los Angeles Athletic Club, a private social club in downtown LA. If my clients are not local, telephone or Skype

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?
