Los Angeles Wedding Photography bio picture
  • About Me

    I became fascinated with photography at an early age, thanks to my father. It wasn’t his photographic skill that inspired me, though, since my dad was not a very good photographer. We would always joke how people in his photos would have plants and trees growing out of their heads.

    It was actually my father’s camera that captured my interest. I loved the way it felt in my hands — all those cool buttons and controls. It intrigued me. I was also amazed at how it could be used to create these awesome images.

    MY STORY CONTINUED...

Winter Engagement Fun!

On New Years Eve we traveled up to Wrightwood California – home of Mount High Ski Resort. Krysta and Andrew wanted a snowy, Christmas feel to their engagement photos. We spent half the session in the town of Wrightwood and the traveled to Jackson Lake for some “woodsy” photographs. Although my hands were freezing we had a lot of fun. Had to believe that two days before I was at the beach. You gotta love Southern California.

Krysta – Wrightwood was a blast. I an looking forward to your wedding day – so I can hang out with my friends!

Krysta Guenther - January 3, 2010 - 7:53 PM

William, I just want to say that Andrew and I are so incredibly thrilled to have you be the photographer for our wedding. When I was looking for a photographer, I searched literally from Bakersfield to Beverly Hills. After comparing your work with the work of many others, there was just something about your photos. I can’t even explain it, but your photos just capture emotion so well that I actually got teary-eyed looking at photos of brides I haven’t even met! I had been told, correctly so, that your photographer is one of the most important parts of your wedding. These photos will be our memories forever. Even in the freezing cold, we had such a fun time taking our engagement photos with you in Wrightwood. William, not only do I consider you one of the finest photographers I have ever seen, but the way you have treated Andrew and I makes us feel like you are now a good friend.

California Sunshine – Life’s a Beach

Life is a beach here in California. I was back in Malibu yesterday at the beautiful El Matador Beach with Ashley and Justin. The sunshine was warm and the light – well it was amazing! Ashley and Justin were very fun to photograph as you can tell by the images below. We just wandered all over the beach, playing and getting wet. It doesn’t get any better than this!

Beach, Portraits and Dinner with Friends

On Sunday I gathered the whole family in two cars and head down to Malibu for a family Photo session. My buddy – Joey Carman from Joey Carman Photography photographed my family and I captured his. It was one of those magical days – spend with good friends and family. Afterwards we all headed over to Taverna Tony for a Greek feast. Here are some of the images of Joey and Karen with their adorable kids.

Promo Images for Video Friend

My good friend Ari Perilstein – Videographer extraordinaire, is relaunching his business with a new name and website (i would love to link to it, but it does not go live until January 1st, 2010). He asked me to take some promo images for him last week. We headed out to the alley way behind his Beverly Hills office and shot for about 30 minutes. We took our time because I was using my Leica Rangefinder Camera and that requires manual focus and exposure! He are a couple of photos and at the bottom is an awesome film Ari put together from a wedding we both worked on this fall at the St. Regis Hotel.
