MEET OUR FOUNDING PHOTOGRAPHER


wedding photographers in san francisco bay area

Becoming a wedding photographer happened by chance for me, or maybe it was fate? Out of college, I really wanted to go into filmmaking. When I was working at HBO in the casting department, a fellow employee asked me to photograph her friend’s wedding, and they loved their photos. It sparked a new career goal as I was inspired by helping couples document the most special day of their lives....It was basically love at first click!


Since starting Apollo Fotografie, I have been fortunate to employ other amazingly talented San Francisco wedding photographers who share the same passion for fine-art photography and the storytelling techniques borrowed from filmmakers.

Little Known Fact:

I ride a motorcycle to your wedding.



I am a wedding photographer because I am most at home behind the lens.


The chaos of life fades away & I tune in to what is before my eyes. I see everything in that small window my camera provides.


Nothing goes unnoticed.

Little Known Fact:

Little Known Fact: I have a one-eyed dog, named Fable. We roadtrip often.

I take my draw to fashion & personal style, and apply it to my sessions with people. There is something enchanting about that New York energy that I started in. The way textures, colors and patterns are combined with varying skin tones cemented on people of diverse backgrounds sparks an excitement in me that I believe can be applied anywhere.

I think that this is why photographing people excites me. I am meeting someone new, somewhere fresh, and we are able to paint a picture together that is specific to that moment. The canvas is blank, yet we have all of the tools to capture something beautiful. Hurricanes live at my core when I am gearing up to capture a new story, because truly, each couple & individual I meet is a new adventure for me. There is always a story to be told.

I personally find joy in altering my surroundings. The creation and manipulation of light combined with the exact right lens and camera pairing enables us to have complete control over what the audience sees by the time the image hits the camera's sensor. Currently, I am in pre-production on three short films, writing four feature length screenplays and traversing the festival circuit with four short films.

We are always looking for talented people to join our creative team of San Francisco wedding photographers & cinematographers!
