First off, thank you. From swarming a sea of pretty pictures, you ended up here to my humble portfolio. And for that, thank you! Now let's talk about how I get down. 

This is how I do it - from start to finish. We meet up, get some coffee (or wine, always wine) and talk about you and your boo and how I can best serve you (unintentional rhyming). We hang out, we become best friends, we get comfortable with each other, then we shoot! I will not pose you or try to fit you into a mold you are not. I will prompt you, and make adjustments if you're making a funny face or have hair in your mouth. But I won't pose you. I want to capture the real life you, whatever that looks like. Why? Because I believe in documentation over fabrication. I believe in real people, real love, and real good memories that you'll cherish forever.  That's how we do things 'round here.

SoCal Standard Best San Diego Wedding Branding Photographer

- socal style -

SoCal Standard style is what Biggie would describe as “sicker than your average”. It’s where hippie meets hip hop, where boho meets bougie, and where modern meets magic. SoCal Standard takes a playful spin on modern romance and editorial photography. My clients value unique artistic expression but also kicking off their Jimmy Choos to go dance barefoot with their friends and family - that’s “TheSoCalStandard

- the experience - 

if you have ever wondered what kind of experience you'd get with your photographer, wonder no more!

This is the hell-of-a-good time experience you'd get with me:

+ reception dance floor battles

+ a ridiculous amount of professionalism (up until happy hour then... no promises)

+ nonstop 90s throwbacks

+ assistance with your wedding day planning and styling

+ a new best friend and travel partner

+ sneaky bartender (I got you)

+ memories that will literally last forever (I do prints) 

 

I’m basically a mullet - business in the front, party in the back - completely professional during the day but come reception time... ohhhhh it's on.  

picking up what i’m throwing down? sweet! let's party.
