Photography with a heart and purpose -- I give 5% of the proceeds of every booking to the Lupus Foundation of America. One of my daughters has been diagnosed with Lupus so this is personal.

Event, Wedding and Family photographer and videographer. Yes, that's a combo. Sometimes I do the stills, sometimes just the video and usually both. It's an unbeatable combo I believe and offers clients the best value. My clients love me. I fall in love with my clients. I'm a great asset at any wedding, Bar\Bat Mitzvah or event. Just check out my testimonials. I'm on time, leave late and love people. It shows. I carry full liability insurance and backup my backups.

Same sex weddings, Gay Weddings? Lesbian Weddings? Same deal, same love, same great wedding photography.
Love is love even if the person is the same sex and you've been living together for ten years.

Bat and Bar Mitzvahs? Magical. I've done a few this year and just can't seem to shoot enough of these magical mitzvah ceremonies. Sometimes I do still photos, sometimes Bat Mitzvah videography, sometimes both photography and videography. Either way I'd love to shoot your Bat or Bar Mitzvah!

Wedding photography might well be the gold standard for photographers. How so? It's a one shot deal - you miss those great moments and they're hard to reproduce.

Yeah, I know shooting riots and models and sports is tough but this is the most important day of someone's life and, unlike sports, there is usually only one (professional) person capturing the images. I take it very seriously.

I plan the shots and fantasize about the images you and I will create. It's a collaboration after all working with a professional wedding photographer.

Being an LA wedding photographer and taking photos of brides and grooms has to be the most pleasurable experience for a photographer - you're crazy in love, glowing and full of life. How can I not get caught up in all that passion?

Traditional, Photojournalist (Candid) and Contemporary style photography. You choose but you know I love to catch the "moment."

Christian weddings also are a specialty. I seem to shoot a lot of Christian wedding ceremonies and they are a joy to behold. Christian weddings are moving, magical and wonderfully spiritual events - trust me to be discrete, respectful and yes, creative too!

I dream about wedding photography and how I will make the next wedding shoot even better. I plan the shots and fantasize about the images you and I will create. It's collaboration, after all, working with a professional wedding photographer.

Taking photos of brides and grooms has to be the most pleasurable experience for a photographer - you're crazy in love, glowing and full of life. How can I not get caught up in all that passion? Maybe I'm hooked on love? I got married in a castle in Scotland in 2006 (two photographers and one videographer) and yet every day I stare like a hopeless, lovesick puppy at photos of my wife that I took a few months ago. "Men fall (in love) through the eye and women by the ear". Maybe that's why I think men make great observers of women and even better photographers ;)

I prefer to shoot a combination of Photojournalist (Candid) Traditional and Contemporary style photography. I shoot video too - there's something about a moving image of a moving ceremony. They call this Fusion photography.

For the bride and groom the wedding photographer is very often the longest lasting relationship among all the vendors. The venue is never visited again, the food eaten, the dress put away and the fancy invitations put in a drawer. Your wedding photographer is really the only vendor with whom you have a continuing relationship with AFTER the wedding.
You stay close to the photographer. You go over the proofs, "ooh" over the video montage and (maybe) back and forth on which amazing photos become the final 150. I love the client who works closely choosing the photos as much as I love the client who just says: "They're perfect, thanks!" Horses for courses.
Then you become a family, have a little one and now we're talking baby and family photos...it's a relationship which can last years. Choose wisely.
What makes me different? There aren't that many still photographers who do video as well out there. It's great to have a team but sometimes the budget means only one camera person so why not have that LA wedding photographer do both stills and video. Look at my results - you be the judge of my "Fusion" videography and still packages. It makes the booking process simpler too - one less vendor to worry about. After I'm not shooting wedding or event video ALL the time and you aren't shooting wedding or event photographs ALL the time either. And yes, I have a second shooter at the ready too - to catch all the angles if your budget allows (and I would recommend it!). After all, I had one at MY wedding ;)
