About John

I am a luxury wedding photographer based in San Diego, California. With over 25 years as a working photographer, the last 20 shooting weddings, I have photographed nearly 400 weddings throughout the United States, as well as in Central America, Mexico, and Europe.

In addition to countless blogs, I’ve had the honor of having many of my weddings featured in some of the industry’s most respected print publications, including The Knot, Martha Stewart Weddings, C Wedding, and California Wedding Day.

My career began as a photojournalist for the North County Times, where I covered everything from mundane press conferences to action-packed San Diego Padres games. Working for a fast-paced daily newspaper taught me many valuable lessons: preparation, flexibility, patience, and working with what’s in front of me. These lessons form the foundation of my approach to every wedding I photograph.

Along with my wife of 20 years, our amazing daughter and our three dogs (@dogg_bros on Instagram), I reside along San Diego's North County coast, where I’ve lived nearly my entire life.

In my spare time, I love getting up early and watching English Premier League matches, running, longboarding, and traveling the nation watching my talented daughter play soccer.
