Los Angeles Portrait & Wedding Photographer
My name is Stanley, and I am a photographer based in Los Angeles, California. I am a portrait photographer specializing in graduation portraits and professional headshots. I am also a wedding photographer – I work together with my partner Esther as a husband-and-wife wedding photography team.
My photography style is Elegant, Artistic, and Timeless.
I believe that there is natural elegance to our world and to all its people. When working with my subjects, I direct them to show their natural elegance and beauty through their unique personalities, whether feminine, masculine, extraverted, introverted, fashionable, or witty.
I see photography as an art form, an opportunity to bring creative visions and ideas to life. I see every shoot as a creative opportunity to make something unique. I believe that every person I work with brings something special to the table, which I always look for in my artistic process.
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.
I love working with people – as a portrait photographer, I like nothing better than to help people see how photogenic they are through a portrait session.
Photographs have the power to shape our perceptions of ourselves.
The biggest reason people dislike certain photos of themselves is that the image isn’t flattering – they aren’t posing in a way that compliments them, they don’t feel comfortable in front of the camera, or the picture isn’t lit or angled correctly.
Often, this results from having a non-professional friend or family member help take your photos. When most of your images come from sources like these, it's easy to see how you initially might not like the idea of a photo shoot.
When you hire me as your portrait photographer, 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 how amazing you look.
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, dating profile pictures, and professional headshots.
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 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 obviously 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, elopement photography, and proposal photography.
