My approach to weddings is organic + relaxed. In fact, almost without fail, every client of mine comments on my laid back attitude and easygoing disposition. I like hearing that because it also usually means that they were feeling comfortable in front of my lens and that we had a good time together, capturing their day + telling their story. 

Working together for your wedding means I’ll show up with an arsenal of pretty rad gear (film cameras + digital cameras; a mix of vintage (like super old school) and some of the latest bodies + lenses) and I’ll capture your day with a ton of passion. We’ll put those important moments, memories and feelings from your wedding day into something more tangible that you’ll have forever. 

If it sounds like we’d be a good fit and you’d like to learn more, shoot me an email for more details. And if you’re in LA or OC, let’s go get some coffee!

IF I HAVE A FREE SUNDAY I WOULD SPEND IT… relaxing at home, going mountain biking with my 70-year-old (!) neighbour, popping in and out of open houses I have no intention of buying or heading to the beach with the fam.

MY MOST MEMORABLE TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WAS… a solo trip I took to Japan last year a few months before the birth of our daughter. I spent my days photographing the city with my vintage Rolleiflex camera and black and white film.

THE COUNTRY I MOST WANT TO VISIT IS… Spain. My wife went last year and fell in love with Barcelona and its residents. It’s climbed to the top of her favourite cities list and I can’t let her one-up me on a travel experience, so I think I need to book a ticket there soon!

WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT MY JOB IS… meeting and keeping in touch with so many amazing couples whom I would never have gotten to cross paths with if it weren’t for my career. I also love, an take very seriously, the fact that I am solely responsible for providing these couples with tangible memories from their wedding day. It’s both wildly thrilling and quietly sincere.

IF I DIDN’T DO THIS FOR A JOB I WOULD BE… a travel blogger/photographer.

IF I COULD GIVE NEWLY ENGAGED COUPLES ONE PIECE OF ADVICE IT WOULD BE… enjoy the ride! Have fun together planning your wedding, don’t stress over the small stuff and remember that, at the end of the day, what will matter is that you’re marrying your best friend.The little details are fun to include, but keep your focus on the big picture and make sure to have lots of fun when your wedding day rolls around!

I LOVE WHERE I LIVE BECAUSE… It’s sunny all of the time!

IF I COULD LIVE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD IT WOULD BE… Stockholm, Prague or Rome. Three of my favourite cities!

MY FAVOURITE MOVIE IS? Too many to pick a fav, I love so many : )

MOST MEMORABLE MEAL I’VE EVER EATEN WAS… Sushi at a Chef ’s table in Tokyo.

THE PETS I OWN ARE… two incredible rescue dogs, Kobe and Kaili.
