Bay Area wedding photographer for people who value real candid moments and don’t want cookie cutter images.

Want your photos to look real and authentic,
and not so posed and contrived?

That’s where I come in.

Candid, Creative, and Fun Wedding Photography

Your wedding day is not a photoshoot. It isn’t endless posing and kissing.
It is your epic celebration, and I am just there to document your story.

I want you to look at your photos and remember how you felt. I want you to see your photos on the wall and retell stories about them in the future. 

My mission as a Bay Area wedding photographer is to document the love of the day for you, your guests, and for generations yet to come, so you can remember how much joy there is in your lives.

Awards and Recognition

Hi, I'm Ian!

I’m a San Francisco native now living in Dublin, CA, with my amazing fiance and our 10 year old pup, Frankie (says relax – get that reference?)

I like country music, am an avid yogi, and am a back to back fantasy basketball champion. 

I know being in front of the camera can be super awkward, so don’t worry – I prefer a candid approach. But when I do instruct you, I will make you laugh, guaranteed! If I can’t do that, then I will just do a handstand and try to impress you at least. 

For a better feel for my style, check out the behind the scenes video I have in my About page below.

 Wedding Photography in San Francisco

As a native Bay Area wedding photographer, I have been fortunate to have grown up in one of the best places in the world to get married. In addition to the great cuisine, attractions, and weather, Northern California is home to some amazing natural landscapes and elopement venues. Redwood trees, ocean views, and wineries are all a short drive from the City.
