FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. WHAT’S YOUR STYLE? Is most often described as “creative documentary”, meaning I photograph your day as it unfolds naturally without interference. However, I also put a lot of energy and time into your “sesion couple,” which are the photos of just the two of you. I look for interesting light, angles and backgrounds, and often use unusual, experimental techniques to turn your wedding portraits into works of art. The goal is to give you photographs that you never even imagined.

I also do high society special events such as the Los Cabos Film Festival as well as landscape and modeling photography.
11. CAN MY “UNCLE” TAKE PHOTOS DURING MY WEDDING? He sure can. People are welcome to take photos during your event, though I remind you have chosen to hire a professional photographer and in my experience people can tend to be unaware of where I am or where they are in the shot. I am able to work around it, though being able to move freely around the event free of obstacles (people included) is best for my clients. Here is an article discussing the idea of an “Unplugged Wedding”. It was written in 2011, but has some great points to consider prior to your big day.
12. DO YOU HAVE ANY CLIENT REVIEWS? Yes! You can just take a look at the contact tab or Facebook Page

14. WHY SHOULD WE HIRE YOU? Style, lay back personality, easy going. My goal is to be a friend with camera for all the people on your wedding day.
