Hey! I'm Namu. I photograph amazing people in love with amazing people.

I'm a talented, funny, awesome, caring wedding photographer serving Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, Pismo Beach, San Luis Obispo, Paso Robles, the SF Bay Area and everywhere in-between. I also capture fun company and family events, make pretty pictures of food and create gorgeous portraits of athletes, employees, kids, couples and more!

Please view my website on a Mac or PC for full quality (tiny little cellphone screens just don't do it justice!).

Based in Pismo Beach, California, USA

You got engaged!

So excited for both of you! And I genuinely mean that. I think connecting with your photographer is super important, so here's my take on wedding photography - if you dig it, then maybe I'm your guy! A wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime event and a photographer's job is to help you and the people you love remember it forever. Some photographers do that by focusing on creating masterpiece bridal portraits and that's their thing, I love that. But my thing? I'm a documentarian, a story teller, someone who excels at capturing "the vibe". I'm less focused on traditional portrait posing and more focused on the candid capturing of the entire event - the pageantry of it all, the hilarious moments that spring up out of nowhere, the younger cousins gathered in the corner doing their best to look cool and unimpressed. I shoot the colors and the lights and the ambience. I capture the kids bounding joyously between the legs of laughing parents. My job is to get a ton of gorgeous shots of the two of you, but to also give you breathing room to actually enjoy your time together on a day you worked so hard for! Sound good so far? Keep going!
