He loves to capture the thoughtful details of the space, the joy and the tears of you and your loved ones, the subtle and the dramatic moments that all come together to create the unique story of this day.

About Scott

Scott is a California native who grew up in Monterey and San Jose. He started playing drums at a young age and in 1990 began recording music and touring with Reggae bands Inka Inka, Dub Nation and Dub FX. He also backed many top Reggae artists including Judy Mowatt, Sister Carol, and Yami Bolo.

After the birth of his son in 2009, Scott picked up his first DSLR camera and quickly fell in love with the art form while photographing his own children. He then moved on to shoot portraits and headshots, as well as landscape photography.

As his skills grew and word began to spread, he eventually was hired to shoot product and lifestyle photography for bicycle company Public Bikes, where he was able to develop a strong set of studio lighting techniques.

After this experience, Scott decided to pursue photography full time and bring his knowledge of both natural and studio lighting to wedding, event and portrait photography.

Scott’s artistic background, both in music and in various photographic genres, provides the foundation for his unique style. He feels that all art forms relate to each other and can support one’s artistic vision. He draws parallels between mixing a song in the recording studio and processing an image: the most important part is having a vision for what you want to create, and making it happen.

    Amazing experience working with Scott

    My family and I love love love the photos that Scott took for my wedding at SF city hall, they are all amazing! Scott has keen observations and captured all the memorable moments with perfect angles, composition, and light. He is very professional, not only in terms of photos he took, but also in terms of his high conscientiousness and patience. Just name two examples, he arrived at the city hall about 40 minutes before our scheduled time in order to get preparations. And he stood in the rain to take photos for us in front of the city hall.

    In addition, he is super easy and sweet to communicate with and is flexible with our needs. I like that he gave us great suggestions on posing. My husband and I are both shy and introvert people, but we both felt relaxed and enjoyable working with Scott. He is the most wonderful photographers I ever worked with! I would strongly recommend Scott to anyone!

    Wonderful Photographer!

    Scott was recommended to us from a friend. After speaking with him, and reviewing his portfolio we knew that he was the perfect fit to photograph our wedding. Scott was a pleasure to work with during every step of the planning process, and especially on our wedding day. He was not familiar with our wedding venue, but he went above and beyond to prepare for our big day by visiting our site the a few times to ensure that we would have beautiful photos. He was very knowledgeable about lighting around our indoor/outdoor venue, and scouted the best areas around the site for our photos. We have a one-year old daughter, and we were nervous about getting great photos with a rambunctious toddler; but Scott was extremely understanding and patient with us, and he was able to get great photos of her that we will cherish forever. Scott is very easy to work with, and he and his assistant, Shalin made the picture taking process very easy as well. We were confident that we would be in great hands with Scott, and this allowed us to relax and enjoy our special day. Our photos are beautiful, and we love looking at them. We highly recommend Scott to any couple, and we would love to work with him again in the future.
