Scott MacDonald is a wedding photographer based in San Jose, Calif. with a strong background in photojournalism. Scott worked for a dozen years as a daily newspaper photojournalist in three different states, observing his community and telling stories through pictures. He won a number of awards during that career, including The Society of Professional Journalists' "Best Photographer in Ohio."
Scott loves capturing the varied emotion at weddings: the smiles, the tears, the joyful dancing, the warm embraces. He approaches weddings as an unobtrusive documentarian, but also remains approachable and engaging to his clients and their friends and family. When not behind the camera, Scott enjoys cycling, skateboarding, playing the drums and watching the sun set in Big Sur with his wife Amber.
