I'm a wedding & portrait photographer currently based out of San Antonio, Texas. I've had my own photography business for almost 6 years now and within that time, I've been blessed to have met & worked with so many cool people.
Outside of photography, I enjoy catching up on tv series, watching anime and playing video games. What I am really passionate in though, is reading books and attending workshops that benefit me in developing my photography skills and growing my business.
I also enjoy going on cross country expeditions with my girlfriend Yolanda and our two puppers Kreechyr (Bordercollie) & Mera (German Shepard).
We recently returned to San Antonio in late July after driving up through the Pacific Northwest. We had never been that far north before so it was amazing to visit Olympic National park and see everything in between.
Our next adventure will be in February where we will travel to Yosemite to spend a few weeks there enjoying the atmosphere and creating some epic images.
If you've read this far, thank you. I'm so happy that you're here and I'm having the opportunity to work with you to document your special day. I'm looking forward to hearing from you soon!
I first picked up a camera in 8th grade when I took journalism and became the yearbook photographer for my school. I remember my teacher loaning me his 35mm Canon Film camera and telling me “go buy 35mm 800 ASA film” and my dad taking me to Walgreens to go buy the film & load it up so that I could shoot the after school football or volleyball game. Back then I didn’t know the technicalities of what I was doing but what I knew, was that I was creating images that we would all one day look back on, and that was everything to me. Almost 2 decades later I still find myself with all the same passion and excitement, perhaps even more; as I felt back then when I first got into it. I’ve always been a very observant person and I genuinely love finding & documenting the beauty in the world around me. I get my inspirations and strength though reading books, both spiritual and business in nature; and I love always challenging myself to grow in my craft and as a person.
“Every wedding, every shoot, I see the world through a whole new lens. Your story will be different from the last, and this ignites my passion all over again.”
Rain, hail or shine, I won’t miss a beat
It could be said that I love to observe. The way I photograph is often intimate, personal, and very quiet. I am constantly pursuing to maintain the true feeling and realness of the day in every image. Every client is different and every wedding, no matter how traditional, seems to have its own little quirks. This excites me, I love getting to know my client's personalities and working towards bringing them out in my images. For me, wedding photography is about making images that mean something to you; it's more than just a pretty picture.
Outside of photography, I love spending time with my girlfriend going shopping, doing little projects around the house and catching up on Netflix series, we’re currently jumping back and fourth between Season 3 of “60 days in” on Netflix and Season 1 of “Yellowstone”.
On my downtime I also love playing video games, I’m a huge fan of Rocket League, World of Warcraft & this super old game called Tibia; and watching Anime.
What we both really live for though, our puppers included; is going on cross country expeditions. Our last trip back in July 2020 took us through 8 national parks and all the way through the PNW ending in Washington and coming back down.
That’s a little sneak peek into my life and a few of my favorite things. No matter who and where we are, we’re all souls wandering this beautiful earth, with a different story to share. No tale is one and the same. And that’s why I LOVE documenting love stories (and hopefully yours too!)”
