I grew up in Manhattan Beach, California and really loved the Southern California / beach lifestyle. I met and married my beautiful wife Leah in 1997. (And our wedding photos were horrible!) We had our daughter Sophie in 1999 and moved up to Bishop the next year. We absolutely love it here in the Eastern Sierras and don't have any plans of leaving....ever. I ski in the winter, and enjoy the countless activities available up here in the summer. Yeah OK I miss the beach a little...but not the traffic.
I have been a photographer for over 20 years and started doing weddings 8 years ago. I studied every aspect of wedding photography and attended seminars from some of the industry's top professionals. Only when absolutely sure I was ready and properly equipped with complete professional gear, I started taking bookings...and quickly found my calling.
In late 2015, Leah took over all of my correspondence and bookings, and eventually the entire business end of things for me. This has freed me up to completely immerse myself in my creative work without the stress of wondering "what email am I forgetting to send?" Sophie has even begun learning photography and has proven to have an artistic eye as one of my assistants. We are a great family team!
From my first wedding, I realized that this is my absolute favorite thing to do with a camera. I love being part of something so very important. I will be your friend and supporter that day, and help keep things on track. I thrive on the pressures and excitement that the wedding day brings. I know going in, no matter what, I am going to deliver to you a wonderful, complete visual story of your day.
