What should the customer know about your pricing?
I like to show my clients the services I offer, and then we can create a custom package that works with your budget.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
When working with a new client, I like to schedule a time to talk on the phone so we can discuss the coverage you are looking for and go over the different types of packages I offer. This initial phone consultation helps us get to know each other, and then I can go over the next steps (ex: putting down a deposit to lock in the date, the event or project timeline, and agreeing upon the creative deliverables).
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I studied Film Production at San Diego State University, and focused on advanced video editing and cinematography courses. Collaborating with talented creatives on a weekly basis inspired me to start my own video production and photography business! Now I enjoy using my creative eye to capture events, portraits, and content you will be excited to share!
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I grew up in Point Loma and Ocean Beach in sunny San Diego, CA. My journey to discovering my passion for filmmaking and photography started when I won a small camcorder in a raffle in the 4th grade. Ever since, I have been working on perfecting my craft as a camera operator and editor. I graduated from San Diego State University with a dual major in Film Production and Financial Services. In the beginning of my career a family friend asked me to capture their wedding, and after delivering the final edits and hearing their excited reaction to the photos and videos on the phone, I was hooked. I have been professionally photographing and filming special events since 2014.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I like to meet new people and capture their memories! I offer engagement and wedding photography, live event photo/video coverage, and portrait photography services. I also cover events such as trade shows, company parties, and conferences. At these events I offer (recap videos, event photography, headshots for employees, etc.) I enjoy working with entrepreneurs, businesses, and families, and providing them with strong marketable content and lifelong memories that can be shared and treasured. I look forward to connecting.

Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I filmed a wedding where I have known the bride since the 5th grade, and have known the groom since we played baseball together in high school! This dynamic power couple made my job easy, and there was crying, dancing, laughing, and a conga line around the room! It was one for the books! The wedding video of their special day came out beautifully and they were so excited to be able to rewatch how their wedding day unfolded!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
When you hire a vendor, make sure they are licensed and insured. This reaffirms they care about their business and know what they are doing. I want to make sure you receive top notch photographs and videos! When the last song plays on your wedding day, the photographs and videos captured during your wedding will turn into once in a lifetime memories that can be shared and treasured for years to come. The photos and videos of your loved ones all laughing and dancing together are some of the most precious moments to look at and watch over and over again. Let’s capture some exciting memories!
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
