Describe your business in 1-3 short sentences.
I'm a Los Angeles based photographer with a documentary sensibility. With a gentle eye, I will steer your formal photographs to best reflect your personalities, while simultaneously documenting those subtle yet profound candid moments that make up such an important day.
Why do you want to work with APW Couples?
I'd love to link up with like-minded individuals who crave to make their wedding-day experience their own. APW couples are thoughtful, smart and adventurous. Whether you choose your wedding day to be rooted in family tradition or throw a wedding that's re-invented by design, I believe weddings should not fall within the one-size-fits-all model and I'm certain APW couples would agree.
Describe your artistic approach to weddings?
I would describe my style of wedding photography as photojournalistic. While capturing formal portraits of the couple are important, I also believe that catching the ambiance of your day and the life-force of your invited guests is of equal priority. With a gentle eye, I will steer your formal photographs to best reflect your personalities, while simultaneously documenting those subtle yet profound candid moments that make up such an important day. I keep a keen watch as the day naturally unfolds so you have a document long after the day has passed you by.
My camera and I stay vigilant throughout your day, which no doubt will have many moving parts, while maintaining an unobtrusive and honest presence. Stay in the moment and I will do the rest.
What are your non-work-related hobbies?
Art, music, and my love of Los Angeles history weave in and out of my day-to-day. When I'm not taking photographs for work or for play (or even just thinking about photography), you might find me watching a band play in a dark bar somewhere or strolling down the streets of Los Angeles, soaking in my city while daydreaming of a Los Angeles of yesteryear. And one day when I figure out the cure to sleep, I'll start producing that L.A. history podcast I've been yappin' about for years now!
What’s your favorite movie?
Only one? Too hard! Alright, each of these films to me are "perfect": ¡Three Amigos!, It's a Wonderful Life, & Be Here to Love Me: A Film About Townes Van Zandt. -- To be fair, so many movies have inspired my story-telling sensibilities since I was a kid, so this question is a special kind of torture.
If you could have a one minute dance party at your desk, what song would you pick?
Without a doubt, R.E.M.'s "Happy Shiny People". Something about that song really gets-me-goin'. It's strange actually, it pumps a kind of adrenaline in me that is simply supernatural.
