  • 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.


Westlake Village Inn was the setting for Corinna and Sam’s beautiful wedding last Sunday. It was a gorgeous day and the wedding ceremony took place in the Tuscan Garden – an amazing garden with a long pathway over-grown with Jasmine.

This wedding centered around family and very close friends – with most traveling from out of State to be with Sam and Corinna. The cocktail hour and reception overlooked the beautiful lake and it’s gazebo.

Here are a couple of photos from the day. My favorite is Corinna and Sam sharing an embrace right after the recessional had concluded.

I would love to hear from you – please contact me.

    Hi William, I was absolutely blown away by the photos you took of the Gold’s wedding!!! You really captured both the beautiful couple and the beauty of their surroundings, not to mention the specialness of the occasion! One of the things I liked best about the photos is their uniqueness, which is something you don’t see a lot of these days! I am so looking forward to viewing the rest of the photos! Thank you for doing such a great job of recording such a special day!ReplyCancel

You have the perfect partner who proposed in the perfect way, and now the perfect day awaits. Whether you’re planning a small, intimate affair or the wedding of the century, careful planning is crucial to success. To avoid the hassles of wedding planning, some opt to hire a professional (which is what I recommend doing); however, if you plan to do it yourself, the stress and anxiety can be eradicated with careful preparation, plenty of time and attention to detail.

Don’t Procrastinate on Planning

The first step in wedding planning is to hit the ground running – don’t wait until just a few months before your wedding day to start planning. After announcing your engagement to family and friends, start putting the wheels in motion. Buy a calendar that will be used solely for wedding planning, and note milestones and goals that you want to have reached by certain dates.

Teamwork Works Best

Communicate with your future spouse and plan together. Set aside a night or two each week to focus on wedding planning. Both of you should discuss your ideal wedding and what it would look like. There are so many tiny details that go into wedding planning, so it’s best to have “two heads” instead of one. Don’t forget to compromise on ideas, but keep the overall theme cohesive. Also remember to share the duties of wedding planning so neither one of you gets too overwhelmed.

Keep In Touch

Depending on the size, your wedding may or may not require you to contract with several different vendors – florists, caterers, musicians, photographer and more – and you’ll need to stay in constant contact with them over the course of your wedding planning. Keep a list of your vendors’ contact information handy so you can quickly get in touch with them if last-minute changes arise. You’ll also be interviewing vendors before you settle on a match, so be sure to make a list of pros and cons for each when you meet with them.

Plan within Your Means

Another important tip in wedding planning revolves around finances. The cost of a wedding can quickly escalate without proper restraint, so be sure to establish a total budget with your fiancee. Calculate for everything from napkins and invitations to limousine rental and a wedding singer. Also note that things can sometimes go wrong for even the most meticulously planned wedding, and it may be wise to have a little extra saved up just in case.

Stay Positive

The end goal is perhaps most the important thing to remember over the course of wedding planning. This is a joyous and momentous occasion that you and your partner are working towards, so don’t let the stress overwhelm you! If you need to take a week or two off from wedding planning, do so and return with a fresh mind and a renewed spirit.

Last year my wife and traveled to Santa Ynez wine country to photograph engagement pictures for Jessica and Jason. We had such a wonderful day getting to know them that I knew their wedding was going to be a great event. Well Jessica and Jason were married last weekend at the beautiful TPC Valencia Country Club and the wedding lived up to my expectations.  Jessica and her bridesmaids prepared for the big day in the stunning “Red Room” at the Hyatt Regency Valencia. Later in the evening the band “Full House” rocked the reception. The bride’s father was the keyboardist!

We all spent a great day soaking in the beautiful California weather taking hundreds of images. I was joined by Christine Ciszczon, an awesome photographer, and together we captured some great moments. Here are a couple to enjoy:
