Hello & Hola! I am an experienced wedding photographer & storyteller based out of New York City and Mexico City with a passion for storytelling through the lens. Whether it’s a smile or a kiss, a portrait or a place, I ensure dedicated attention to each and every shot – resulting in beautiful, high quality photography capturing your moment.
Growing up in the vibrant surroundings of Mexico City, I developed an eye for beauty from a young age - be it in the obvious or the unexpected. After moving to New York City in 2002, I turned this eye into my passion: photography. I studied at The New York Institute of Photography and currently belong to the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP), The National Press Photographers Association (NPPA) and the Professional Photographers of America (PPA). I've been honored to have showcased my work at numerous exhibitions including at the Soho Gallery for Digital Art, Museo del Barrio in Harlem and Art in Times Square, and was thrilled to be selected as a photo contributor in National Geographic’s “Life in a Day” film (2011) produced by Ridley Scott.
I am bi-lingual in Spanish & English; available for weddings in the New York City area, Mexico and further destinations. When not busy taking pictures, I can be found writing my first book "Aprende Fotografia y su Negocio," working on language #3 (German), and scouring the food scene for the perfect taco al pastor (not so easy). I currently reside on Manhattan’s Upper West Side with my wife and partner in crime, Lauren.
From weddings, engagements and proposals to family and individual portraits, locations to events, let my team & I turn your moment into something spectacular!
