I love what I do...to capture the right moment is special. San Diego is my main home, but I also am in Lake Havasu and Boulder Colorado often and service those areas as well. My attitude is to be spontaneous and capture those difficult moments, but I have the fine art training and background as well. I like to think outside the box when I can but also understand the need to be in it for some photos as well. It's about balance and capturing your day the way I see it as well as how you envisioned it.
My AA is in Fine Art, my BFA in Media and Multimedia. I have taught at the college level (UCSD ext. and DAC), Adults, High School and kids fine art (I paint too) as well as photography. My first wedding I shot was over 9 years ago. The bride saw my photography of older adults (at the time I worked with many older adults) and said "I want you to shoot my wedding!" My reply was "I don't shoot weddings, I shoot people the way I see them...doing what they do." Never the less, she talked me into it. Within a year I was shooting close to 20 weddings a year, within several years, I was shooting 50ish weddings a year. I have learned to balance most things in my life I hope...one is I now aim to stay in the 30 or so weddings at most range,
I have won several international awards for photography as well as my paintings. I see moments and art...and people. My goal is to present that to you in capturing your day.

Wedding Photography Packages
All the Moments Package
6 hours - second shooter and an assistant.
Ce as the main photographer, Steve as the assistant for lighting and equipment (not shooting). You will also get a second shooter, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED and the most popular package.
$250 for each additional hour (includes Ce and Steve as well as the second shooter). Ask about packages for less than 7 hrs or see the small wedding prices below.
Includes a 1.5 hr engagement session (locations dependant on situation) which I believe is important for getting to know each other and honestly, those photos are cherished as much as your wedding photos usually. If you really want to opt out of it, you can take 150.00 off (300.00 value is reduced due to how important I think they are and not decuctable for the full amount). Just to let you know how important I think they are, I will also throw in one 16x24 canvas print or an engagement sign book 8x10 with up to 20 pages/sides.
