It can take years of study and unrelenting passion for a visual artist to learn to tastefully manifest creative ideas and develop a unique 'voice'. This journey defines an artist. I've been on this journey now for 20 years, and I feel like the creative ideas I always imagined I could take are now manifesting for others to enjoy. It is a very exciting time!  
I seek authentic interactions between a couple. I interpret your energy and translate that into a set of images that will take your breath away. My post production process comes from within - I have spent years exploring how to express the colors and tones in my work, and like the images I capture, are uniquely my own. Mentors and peers alike often describe my work as 'straddling the fine art wedding and documentary photography genre.' 
Each story is unique and deeply personal, and I love listening to your stories of how you met and fell in love. My responsibility is to translate your personal narrative as a couple into a photo essay that you will cherish for all time. If you have connected with my work, please reach out and say hello - I'd love to hear your story.

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

I'm located in 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 25-30 weddings per year, and have photographed weddings since 2008

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

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.

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

8 hour coverage with delivery of 400 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.

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

Available by Skype or in person.

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

Member of the American Photographic Artists association, ranked as 'one of the top wedding photographers in Los Angeles' by Zankyou.com, regular attendee of the WPPI (Wedding & Portrait Photographers International) convention every year. Regularly attend workshops in Los Angeles by some of the greatest photographers working today.

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

Easy going, friendly, quick to spot creative ideas and explore/exploit them during a photography assignment!
