This gallery of wedding photos will transport you in time.  You'll go back to the funny moment in a ceremony when the flower girl put her basket on her head and wondered around the page.  You'll see a bride crying as she reads her vows to her groom.  You'll see love between family and friends, and the beginning of these couples' lives together.

My favorite time in the wedding day is being in the bridal suite, taking pictures as the bride gets ready.  It's a very intimate part of the day because it's the last few hours of her single life.  I've included several photos of brides getting ready, and my favorite one is from Whitmore Mansion in Ceres, California.  

The most majestic, beautiful place we photograph elopements is in Yosemite National Park.  I grew up right outside the park, so it was my back yard.  I'm very familiar with the layout and different ares, which makes me the perfect person to work there.  My favorite time of year to shoot in Yosemite is the autumn because of the fall leaves and beautiful light.

My goal is to be as different as possible, while creating art that our clients will cherish for a lifetime.  You can then pass down your wedding album through the generations so your children, grand children, and so on can continue to love them forever.  Wedding photography is meant to preserve memories and tell our future generations about who we were once, and where they came from.

I specialize in all types of film, and am known for my black and white work.  While I love taking unique portraits of brides and grooms, I really enjoy taking natural candid photos.
