“In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”
I'm a wedding and lifestyle photographer based out in North Hollywood, California, specializing in outdoor weddings and lifestyle. I started photography back in high school, taking photos of my friends cars. That slowly transitioned to taking photos of people which I thought I’d never do but it really grew on me.
One day, I was browsing the internet and came across the work of wedding photographer Mike Colon (now a dear friend of mine). I loved his work and story telling. It was at that moment, I realized I was a hopeless romantic and wanted to capture images that could tell you a lot about a person—but more importantly, their love. I love weddings because it’s like a movie, only real-time and with real people.
A few things about me:
I’m outdoorsy. My free time would consist of four wheeling, camping, fishing, climbing.
My dog looks funny. And that’s why I love her.
I gravitate to Japanese whiskey but when that’s not around, anything will do. Like chocolate milk.
I LOVE shooting medium format film. Digital is cool too
I’m a nerd when it comes to lighting and production. I watch movies not just for the story but I deconstruct every part of it.
I’m a tinkerer and love things mechanical.
