From my first wedding until now my goal has always been to demonstrate a technical skill along with a heart that is focused on the artistic nuances of the wedding day.

Types of Wedding Photography Services Offered

The satisfaction of my clients is my top priority. I take pride in delivering not just photographs but an experience that exceeds expectations. I offer a variety of approaches that fits the desired goal of each wedding couple.

Traditional Wedding Portraits

My approach to the traditional wedding ceremony is to honor the cultural traditions and religious practices of each couple. The wedding ceremony and wedding portraits are photographed with more of a classical approach and documenting the important moments at whatever wedding venue we are at. 
I find the best settings to capture the traditional style is to incorporate the church setting along with any types of traditional dress.

Candid Wedding Moments

Candid wedding moments have a unique charm that adds authenticity, emotion, and a sense of spontaneity to the captured images. Candid moments capture genuine emotions, expressions, and interactions. Unlike posed shots, candid photos showcase the real, unfiltered moments that unfold naturally during the wedding. This authenticity resonates with viewers and creates a more genuine narrative of the day.

Elopement Photography

Elopement photography captures the raw, intimate essence of a couple’s decision to exchange vows in a private, often breathtaking setting. It’s a visual narrative of love, spontaneity, and the adventurous spirit of two souls committing to each other against a stunning backdrop. One of the most captivating aspects of elopement photography is its ability to focus solely on the couple and their connection without the distractions of a traditional wedding. With fewer guests and a more relaxed atmosphere, photographers can truly delve into the emotions and personalities of the couple, resulting in genuine, heartfelt images.

My Elopement wedding are more than just capturing beautiful images—it’s about preserving the memories of a truly special and deeply personal moment shared between two people in love. It’s about embracing spontaneity, adventure, and the simple joy of being together in a place that holds meaning for them.

The Central Coast has many majestic and beautiful locations for Elopement weddings. The wineries in Paso Robles, Big Sur and the surrounding coast are all ideal for a smaller, intimate weddings.
