Los Angeles Portrait & Wedding Photographer

My name is Stanley, and I am a photographer based in Los Angeles, California. I am a portrait photographer and wedding photographer, specializing in graduation portraits, weddings, proposals, engagements, and professional headshots.

Elegant, Timeless, and artistic Photography Style

My approach to photography is defined by a love for radiant, natural light and aesthetic tones, creating images that are not just photos, but memories colored with vibrant imagination. I see photography as an art form, an opportunity to bring creative visions and ideas to life. I see every shoot as an opportunity to make something unique.

My working style is proactive, focusing on providing flattering directions and expert posing to make you look your best. Known for my easygoing and calm demeanor, I ensure your photography experience is enjoyable and stress-free. Whether it's your graduation, a professional headshot, your wedding day, or a special engagement, I'm here to capture your moments in the most beautiful and lively way possible.

A great photograph transcends time. Although I love participating in popular trends, I believe that the most timeless formula to creating a fantastic portrait is simple: tasteful composition and lighting and a subject who feels encouraged to be themselves.

My philosophy

I love working with people and helping them look their best. Through my years of experience, I've found that being photogenic is simply an attitude you wear. For me, that’s been one of the most rewarding aspects of photographing people. If I could help somebody feel great about themselves and how they look, I would have done my job successfully. It’s easy to say that you’re amazing just the way you are, but it’ll be more convincing to simply show you the beautiful results from our shoot!

I am also a strong believer in the incredible power of photography to transform and nurture positive body image. I am here not only to help people craft beautiful images but also to create a safe and empowering environment where individuals feel celebrated and confident in their own skin.

Portrait Photographer

As a portrait photographer, my passion lies in working with people. There's nothing more rewarding than helping individuals discover their photogenic qualities through a portrait session.

Photographs hold a unique power to influence how we perceive ourselves, and my goal is to harness that power positively.

A common reason people may feel dissatisfied with certain photos is due to a lack of flattering elements. This could be because of uncomplimentary posing, discomfort in front of the camera, or poor lighting and angling. Often, these issues arise when relying on non-professionals, like friends or family, or photographers who aren't skilled in the art of posing to capture these moments. It's understandable how such experiences might lead to not being excited about having your picture taken.

When you hire me as your portrait photographer, you'll have a far more positive experience. You can be confident that I’ll always give flattering posing directions, provide an easy and comfortable photo shoot experience, and understand how to create beautiful photographs that show you at your very best.

I believe that when you see the final images from our portrait session, you’ll be even more impressed with who you are and what you can do!

My portrait photography specialties include graduation portraits for undergraduate, graduate, and high school students, family portraits, and professional headshots.

Wedding Photographer

I believe that while one can create a fulfilling life by oneself, being with a supportive partner means that you can easily take on the universe together. This is a case of one plus one, equaling over nine thousand. This philosophy drives my partner Esther and me as a couple and a husband-and-wife photography team. As wedding photographers, we want to create a set of wedding-day documentaries and artistic photographs that accurately show the unique bond you and your partner share.

Our approach makes us unique – we believe that photographs are important, but your experience is even more so. We blend seamlessly into your wedding day, capturing moments quickly yet authentically, and can help you plan your photo schedule so everything moves smoothly on your wedding day.

Our specialties include wedding day photography, engagement photography, proposal photography, and elopement photography.
