I love my job, and I love working with my clients. But when not shooting a wedding, you'll likely find me in the photo pit at big concerts. Everyone from Justin Timberlake, to Peter Gabriel, to Metallica. Getting the perfect live moment (despite strobe lights in my face) allows me to be even more observant and quick when working a wedding.
My work has been featured in various formats and publications, including the front cover of Ben Folds Five: Live (Sony), AP Magazine, Candlebox: Disappearing Live, the San Francisco Examiner, Alternative Press, etc. Grand-Prize Winner from Studio414's global One World Photography Contest, won two honorable mentions from the International Photography Awards, and have been featured on CBS San Francisco as a recommended wedding photographer.
Located in Walnut Creek, CA. Travel fee may apply for significant distances.
I've always been a fan of letting the moment craft itself. Whether it's candids or a more planned session with a bride and groom, I let people be themselves and grab the shining personal moments on camera when they aren't aware of it. That's what makes me smile the most, and it's what makes my clients smile the most.
My most commonly-booked package is a 6 hour block, which includes all editing time, online gallery (password protected). high resolution downloads, digital rights to print/reprint, option to order prints, and unlimited email access to me and any advice I can give.
I'm very personable. I like to connect with people, and I like to treat all of my clients as though we're good friends. It makes their day more comfortable, makes their guests more familiar with me, and makes me enjoy my job even more. Don't be afraid to say hi, give a hug, or slap a high-five. We're all here to have a great time.
