Where are you based?
Santa Barbara, California.
Do you travel for weddings?
How would you describe your style?
Photojournalism with an editorial feel. I have a love for creating photographs that evoke nostalgia.
What inspires you?
Love. The coast, sunsets, the 70's, road trips, my family. The list goes on.
Do you shoot digitally, on film or both?
Both. I think both mediums come together beautifully on a wedding day.
Do you have custom packages according to individual needs?
Because no two weddings are the same, I love creating custom proposals for each couple.
What is a favourite product or service that you offer and why?
Film photography. I love that film embraces imperfections, every photograph is unique and a work of art. Film gives you timelessness, no matter what year it is.
Where would you love to travel to for work?
Any coastal destination. Whether it be California, Italy, Greece, Mexico, Spain or any other coastal region.
Who is your dream client?
Couples who are hopelessly in love and want to be completely present with friends, family and each other on their wedding day. The ones who trust me to document those special moments in a way that’s documentary, creative and unique to them.
What is your advice to couples getting married?
Don’t follow trends. These will come and go so instead, be true to the things that truly matter most to you.
Focus on being present. Your wedding day happens once and it’s your photographer’s job to bring that to life in a special way without you needing to overproduce a moment. The best photos are from true, candid emotion - so just relax and be you!
