My name is Gene and this is my dog, Juno! Together we live in beautiful Southern California.

When I’m not looking through a lens, I prefer iced coffee over hot coffee. I think breakfast food is appropriate anytime of the day. I am a huge Lakers fan and have traveled to New York and Boston just to watch them. (They lost both games, so there’s that.) Even though I don’t travel as much as I want to, I love traveling and someday want to spend some years living in the Nordic. (How random, right?) Juno loves playing fetch at the beach and playing with dogs that are twice her size.

In 2012, I graduated California State University Long Beach with a degree in Political Science. After I graduated, I worked a few jobs I enjoyed, but the jobs did not fulfill the creative appetite I’ve always had. That all changed the day I decided to buy a professional camera. After taking pictures of landscapes, friends, and family for a brief amount of time, I had an opportunity to photograph a wedding. After that very first wedding I photographed, I became addicted to taking pictures of couples in love.

My goal is to keep your wedding day stress-free and natural. I want to capture your day without much posing or direction from me. I want my photos to capture genuine emotions on your wedding day.

If you like what you see, let’s grab some coffee to discuss more about your wedding day!
