Hey there, I’m James!
Growing up in the sleepy town of Los Osos, a hippie haven of California’s Central Coast, this upbringing influenced me with a calm & easy-going demeanor, while my genetics blessed me with a touch of neuroticism (the true key to success). Basically, I’m a silly man with a love for the simple life: live music, yoga, healthy eating, getting outside, traveling, you name it. I’m also a huge geek and have an appreciation for all things tech, especially PHOTOGRAPHY!
In 2015, I turned my photography hobby into a career and I’ve been wildly in love with life ever since. While I enjoy capturing photos of all kinds, wedding photography has become my bread & butter and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m a total sap for love. It’s the one thing I’ll always fight for, and what a privilege it is to capture such beautiful celebrations of the very thing that turns life into a wonderful adventure. I’m also a strong supporter of equality & inclusivity, and am a Certified LGBTQ+ Inclusive business. I always work diligently to create a open & empathetic space for clients of all identities & orientations.
My photographic style is on the darker side. I like to play with softer light as I guide you through some natural poses & help you feel comfortable in front of the camera. The result? Authentic, vulnerable photos with a romantic & soulful mood.
When we’re working together, I am first a friend. While I practice professionalism each & every step of the way, I truly believe the best photos are created when the vibe is light-hearted & playful! That way you can just have fun & maybe even forget all about the camera.
In short, I create lasting, artful images with you wherever we may be! Whatever the call, it’d be an honor to capture the moment.
