DOCUMENTING THE MOST IMPORTANT MOMENTS WITH AUTHENTICITY. ARTFULLY.

Hi, I’m Jeremy

After getting my Bachelor’s degree in Architecture from Cal Poly Pomona (go Broncos!), I worked in one of the largest architecture firms in the US. I was making a great living, bought our first house, and  things were looking great. However, my life became all about excel spread sheets writing reports. I still remember the day when I was working on yet another excel spreadsheet, and I told myself, “I'm not doing this for the next 30 years of my life.” I knew something needed to change.

I decided to buy my first DSLR camera just to give it a try! I started off by taking photos of my daughters, and became OBSESSED with photography. I loved everything about it. The ability to create art and connect with my subjects was fascinating to me. It gave me the creative outlet that I needed.

A decade and 300+ weddings later, now as they say, the rest is history. I consider it an honor to be entrusted with the task of documenting some of the most important days of my clients' lives, and I can't wait to document yours!

PHILOSOPHY

I believe when my clients hire me, they are hiring me for my ability to tell their stories through my lens. Being a fine art wedding photographer it means I take the time to create a storyline for my clients that will be truly magical. I want my clients to look back on one of the biggest days of their lives and relive each and every moment. Every couple deserves their fairytale wedding. I will make sure your wedding is documented in the most beautiful way possible. If it requires me to insert myself in order to make a genuine moment happen, that's what I will do for my clients. I am a photographer, a director, a curator, and most of all, a story teller for your wedding.

APPROACH

Every wedding is unique, and offers an opportunity for a love story to be told in completely different ways. My job is to document those fleeting in between moments, encapsulate memories in a tangible form, so my clients can pass down their memories for future generations. Throughout a typical portrait session, I will lead my clients in different scenarios and have them react to me naturally. Reaction always produces the most genuine emotions, rather than actions. Most of my clients tell me they don't even feel like it was a portrait session. It felt more like a typical Saturday afternoon stroll in the park with their favorite person.

WHY FILM

Being a film photographer, I love the ethereal feeling a film image provokes. Film has made me a better photographer and really forces me to conceptualize an image before shutter is clicked. It offers my clients timeless imagery of their wedding that's hard to duplicate. However when digital cameras are more suited for the task at hand, I am also able to transition seamlessly between both digital & film, so my clients get the best of both worlds.
