When I shoot weddings, I have two goals. First, I want to capture the story of the day. I'm not concerned about getting that one perfect shot. Instead, I want to create a collection of images that portray that beautiful and lifetime event for the couple and for the family. Second, I want to capture the love between the two people. In my mind it is best done through photo-journalistic style of photography, also known as the documentary style. I try to blend into the wedding crowd and become one of the guests who quietly takes pictures and hardly ever gets noticed. I don't pose my clients unless these are formal group shots or couple wants a formal portrait. My favorite photos are those that are candid and unposed.

I don't have a shot list, and I don't ask one from my clients. In other words, I'm the perfect photographer if photography is the last thing you want to worry about on your wedding day, but you also want to preserve the timeliness story of your wedding that you can relive again and again as decades go by. Because wedding photography is not my main source of income, I shoot because I love to, not because I have to. I also limit the number of weddings I shoot every year to less than 10. This way I enjoy and work my hardest at each and every one of them. I also edit all the photographs myself. While I shoot most of my weddings inside San Francisco Bay Area, I'm happy to travel and have shot weddings all across US and in Europe. developed-09400
