"Capturing the Moment when the Moment Captures you. "

About Me

I am a Destination Photographer, traveling from St.Thomas Virgin Islands to the Berkshires, MA to Kawai, Hawaii to photograph weddings and other life events.  My home is San Clemente, California.  I work in and around Orange County and San Diego, also reaching Long Beach and Rancho Palos Verde.

My corporate clients include KodakCoca~Cola and American Airlines just to name a few..  

My wife, who is also a photo stylist, assists me at many of my showcased events. At large events she helps me capture simply yet sensational shots.  We are good at cornering an artistic yet sentimental styled photography that exemplifies what brides want during that very special and busy day. We capture every moment and delivery a beautiful edited product.

People ask me what is the most difficult challenge as a photographer. Foremost, I find the most ambitious challenge to be light and time constraints.  Although I am proficient at working with all types of light, both natural and artificial, I feel these issues present obstacles to obtaining that perfect shot for any skill level. This is why if you see me, I’ll always be working with all my extra equipment and tools; as I’ve learned there is always that moment you need the one thing you didn’t bring. The finished product and my clients’ joy and satisfaction make it all worthwhile.

I have always have had a creative gene that doesn’t stop at photography.  I also love DJ-ing music at parties and cooking.  I have been actually asked by friends to oversee the DJ and Photograph aspects at the same event (Thanks, Ina!). My perfect date night with Ina,  inevitably involves the kitchen: cooking, fine wine and music.
I also volunteer my time with War Veterans Families’ and Wounded Warriors.  This brings me great satisfaction.
