Meet The Owners!

Hello! My name is Michael. I am a Southern California native and I love what I do! How many people really get to say that? ;-) I can’t say what my favorite part of shooting a wedding is, but I can say that when I see those genuine moments of unconditional love our bride and grooms share, and I look across the room and see my beautiful wife, I know it doesn’t get much better than that. I love celebrating the love and passion our couples share on one of the biggest days of their love story.


Here are some quick facts about me. I enjoy craft beer (Stone, Harland Brewing Russian River are my favorites) I love music, I have been a Dead Head since my first concert back in 88’. I was only 15 at the time. And I love cooking at home with Dia. Some of the best times we have had is experimenting with new recipes and enjoying a nice home-cooked meal with the family.

I love photographing weddings! The small details, the love-filled glances, the laughter. These moments are captured forever, not just for you, but for your family to remember, long after everything else has been forgotten. I love getting to know my bride and groom and tailoring my photography to what is most important to you. With every wedding I get to re-live the love and emotion that I experienced on my wedding day, allowing me to share in your joy and happiness.


I want you to feel at ease and beautiful in front of my camera. I'm here to capture YOUR special day, so your input is very important to me. I am upbeat, friendly, and quite organized. I will capture the big moments, like the first kiss, and the little ones that you never get a chance to see. I look forward to meeting you, and I would be honored to capture this memorable day in your life!
