I have always been steady and calm, even as a kid.  My father used to say “Joshie boy, if you were any mellower you’d be dead”. I believe in kindness, creativity, focus, and hard work. I do not believe perfection exists in an artist, so I strive for improvement and evolution.

Perfection is reserved for someone looking not someone creating.

Not much of what I do is posed and composition comes naturally to me. I am based in the Bay Area and live with my wife and our son.

I love being a part of the most important event in someone's life. It is wonderful to be able to witness so much joy and happiness.

The enjoyment I take in my work also comes with an enormous responsibility. A wedding can fly by in a flash, I strive to take advantage of every second by being aware of what happens around me at all times. My goal is to capture the beauty, romance and spirit of the day in an artistic, photojournalistic and unobtrusive way.

I want my images to bring the bride and groom back to their wedding day, to relive their own experience and also see what they may have missed.

I prefer to cover the whole event from start to finish, beginning with pre-ceremony preparations and finishing with the bride & groom departing from the reception. I focus on details, activities, and candid moments in a style that is unobtrusive. Thank you for taking the time to view my work, I hope you enjoyed it.
