I am a lifestyle and wedding photographer with an absolute love for capturing raw emotion and utilizing natural light whenever the situation allows.
I was born in Los Angeles, California but currently reside in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley in Santa Barbara, CA with an additional home base in Manhattan, NY and spend my time juggling work and life between the two coasts.
As a seasoned photographer having been in this industry for 10+ years I am always up for a creative challenge. I am a lover of light, nature, art, music, and preserving life’s sacred moments through photographs. If you love the way the world looks through my lens please inquire within.
It’s really important to me the you take the time to review my portfolio, read my reviews, set up a time to chat so I may answer all of your questions and concerns and be sure you are fully confident in your decision to hire me before doing so. My photography style is pretty consistent across the board which means if you like what you see there should be no surprises. I want you to hire me because you’ve fallen in love with my imagery and because my style is reflective of the type documentation you’ve dreamed of for your wedding day. I work very closely with my couples throughout the wedding process and have formed lifelong relationships with many of my clients as a result, going on to document far beyond their wedding day and capturing many more of life’s milestone moments as their stories continue to unfold. It’s truly a special bond that is built and one of the biggest blessings of my job. I truly love what I do and pride myself in working with couples that see the value in my artistry.
I definitely consider myself a lifestyle photographer with an emphasis on capturing raw emotion and detail. While there will be times throughout your wedding day where I will need to organize shots (i.e. formal family photos) my favorite images from any day tend to be candid and unposed. When working with my couples I try my best to direct them in a way that makes them feel comfortable and draws out genuine laughter and real emotion. I try to be as unobtrusive as possible so that I may capture the events of the day as they unfold organically. Iv’e been known to do just about anything for a good shot though and am always up for a creative adventure or challenge if one presents itself. I am an absolute lover of natural light and live for magic hour sunset shots. I do not get overwhelmed easily and having been in this industry for over 10 years have seen and worked through just about anything… and I mean anything.
Yes and no. Some weddings it is simply not necessary for me to have an assistant. I personally love to be able to capture all of the main events myself whether an assistant is present or not whenever possible…however sometimes the situation does not allow me to be everywhere at once and in that case an assistant is absolutely necessary. I am lucky to have a team of skilled assistant photographers and associate shooters .
Yes. Every single image is edited. I do not provide raw, unedited imagery as I consider each image a work of art and would not hand over incomplete work. All of your images will be high resolution and un watermarked.
I am lucky enough to live in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley in Santa Barbara, CA with an additional home base in Manhattan, NY and spend my time balancing work between the two coasts. I do not charge travel fees within Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties, Manhattan, Brooklyn, and parts of Long Island and New Jersey. If you are inquiring about a location outside of my standard shooting range contact me so I may quote you appropriately based on distance and circumstance. I also offer destination wedding packages as well as the opportunity to have your full wedding weekend documented, rehearsal dinners, welcome receptions, brunch ect…
I don’t. I place all of my emphasis on photography as to not miss any important moments throughout your day and I strongly encourage you to book a separate videographer as it is and entirely different craft. I am happy to recommend some that I work closely with!
It really depends on the time of year you are getting married and how many other events I am managing at the time. During a busy season it can take 2-3 months to receive your gallery although I do offer a rush upgrade that can be added to your photography package if you’re dying to get your hands on your images ASAP. I’ve been known to get them out in as quick as 4-6 weeks during a slower season.
