Central Coast of California Wedding and Engagement Photographer

Meet the Photographer

Self Portrait

Welcome to my world!  I am an award winning Wedding, Engagement and Creative Portraiture Photographer who has called the Central Coast of California my home for over 15 years.  In that time, I have pursued my passion of photography with laser focus on technique, art and creativity, and I am fortunate enough that my efforts have paid off and I can call my "passion" my "profession"!  Photography is my art...instead of picking up a paintbrush or molding clay, I grab my camera. I have been told I have a keen eye when it comes to creating unique, artistic and memorable images.  I seek to capture moments that perhaps may get overlooked or simply forgotten as a day passes. I want my photographs to evoke an emotion; if they do, I have done my job.  I am someone who is willing to get creative when it comes to location, posing, themed shoots, wardrobe, and general "feel" - if you can dream it up, I will do my best to capture it.  Whether it is laying on the grass to get the perfect angle on your Wedding Ceremony, or utilizing the natural landscape to create props and ambiance for that perfect shot, you can feel confident that I will do what it takes to provide you with photographs you will treasure for a lifetime.  All of this, and I'm fun to work with too - if you're having a great time, so am I!

I have been fortunate enough to be a "Top Pro" on Thumbtack for two years running, as well as a Wedding Wire professional with all "5 Star" reviews.  It is my job to make you happy, and that is what I strive to do - from booking through to the providing you with your images, I am always available to lend an ear, give advice and make sure that you are happy with the end result.  

 

I shoot with a Nikon equipment, and can provide extremely high quality images that can be reproduced in very large sizes and on various mediums without sacrificing quality.  I have two "full frame" professional cameras with dual card slots, which provides for almost unsurpassed "back-up" ability - there is very little risk in losing images.  My "corral of gear" includes all of the most reputable and well-loved lenses by wedding photographers, including the famed 70mm to 200mm 2.8 and the 24mm to 70mm 2.8, as well as the 50mm 1.8 art lens, a 24mm to 140mm and a 14mm Wide Angle that will allow for those unique and "trick shots" that give your wedding gallery extra flair.  I also use the lastest editing software including Lightroom and Photoshop to ensure that my final images are both artistically edited and still true to what the eye can see.
