Thank you so much for visiting my website. I’ve been working hard with everyone and hope you love what you see.

I started my business in Los Angeles, as the lead photographer at VELADO IMAGES, my video boutique company.  Since then, I’ve been traveling all of Southern California, as well as nationwide to document weddings. I have also photographed Destinations in different countries.

I photographed my first wedding in El Salvador in 1999, where I grew up. But it wasn’t until 2002 when I started this profession as a full time Wedding Photographer, after the unpredictable love knocked at my door. During those days, I used film in 35mm and medium format. The anxiety to develop the films and see every frame and image created was classic. No doubt, I was totally captured by the emotions of the couples in a candid and natural way. Throughout my career I’ve been working with couples from around the world and I’ve been honored to document joy, laugh, tears and love. Sometimes, even something more than that.

Now, in the digital era, weddings are still a passion and timeless. It doesn’t matter how modern cameras could be, because in front of the lens, your love is what rules and will tell that story to your new family.

 I’m available for all type of nuptials, no matter how big or  small your festivity is. I have witnessed weddings as small as only the Bride and Groom being there to say their vows, all the way up to having 800 guests in one amazing festivity. As a photographer, one of my strongest skills in the art of wedding photography is creating romantic and elegant portraits in combination with unobtrusive story-telling images, capturing the greatest and spontaneous moments of your life.

I’m glad you are here, and thank you for taking the time to see my work.

I’m based in Houston, Texas with my wife and our three kids. And I can go anywhere from here, even Mars or the Moon with the help of NASA, or where your hearts can beat stronger.

I wish you the best in your new journey. MARRIAGE is absolutely amazing.
