Photography, for as long as I can remember, has always been the driving force in my life. At 16 years old, I left school to pursue a career in it. At 19, I left everything in my hometown city of Los Angeles to move to San Francisco with one objective in mind: make it as a wedding photographer no matter what it takes. With no money, family or connections in the Bay Area, I kept telling myself that if I work incredibly hard, put myself and my work out there, that somehow I will be able to make it, and (after only a couple of short years) I was able to succeed as a part of RedSphere Studios and now have countless weddings under my belt ranging from intimate backyard ceremonies to extravagant celebrations with over 600 guests in attendance.
My passion for photography has always been a never ending source of motivation that has forced me to re-think, re-consider, re-imagine and push my work and creativity to its limits. I am a firm believer that there is always an interesting, amazing, and compelling way to view the world, and that it is my responsibility to capture it and to share it with those around me. When I am photographing a wedding I am always looking for that “something extra,” the missing element that will turn an ordinary photograph into an extraordinary one, whether that is light, composition, or emotion.
