“Once again, thank you Karl for taking such great pictures. It brought us to tears last night because your were able to capture some really beautiful and intimate moments. That is exactly what we wanted.” – Javier & Cecilia (More Reviews)

I love weddings, and I love documenting your most precious moments and memories. Though based in beachy Orange County, California, I travel to Los Angeles, San Diego, and the Inland Empire as well, without charging travel fees. I've even been known to do a Pismo Beach wedding or two. I also travel for destination weddings. Honestly, helping couples remember their moments is just an incredible way to spend my life. I also love meeting new people, so the free coffee shop consultations are one of my favorite parts of this job.

For weddings, I offer several packages. Customizations and a la carte packages are available, including digital photos only, and current specials. I’m super reasonable and don't like thinking you might miss out on the wedding photographs you really want simply based upon budget, so please feel free to ask about any customizations and I'll do my very best to work with you. 

Current Specials

1) $450 Off any wedding package.

2) 15% discount if paid in full at the time of booking.

3) Free family mini-sessions for families needing family photos for their adoption portfolios. Completely free 10-minute session with 3-5 photos. My way of giving back to these wonderful families and children.

(Specials cannot be combined with any other specials on external booking sites.)

ROMANCE PACKAGE

The Romance package is the full, comprehensive wedding photography package. It offers all day wedding day coverage, an all-evening engagement session at unlimited locations, a separate day bridal portrait session for all those Pinterest shots, and a leather-bound 12x15 lay-flat album. You can also request that this package be shot in all black-and-white Photojournalism. The Elegant normally uses my classic style of a crisp and warm way of capturing each moment. The Photojournalist is shot all in black and white, with a vintage film feel, and with almost exclusively wide angle movie lenses. It is incredibly artistic and a joy to shoot your wedding with. 

Romance Or Photojournalist– $4700 ($4250 with current special, or $3500 if paid in full at the time of booking)
