Hey guys I'm a wedding photographer based in Simi Valley, California. My love for photography started at a young age. Even as a child, I always knew that I was different. I always preferred to explore the world alone or with those closest to me. I've always been intrigued by the silence of nature, simplicity, and the mysterious darkness of night time. Committed to working closely with you to create a collection of pictures that reflects your genuine bond.
As for my style, I'm really focused on the cinematic/artistic look. I try to steer away from staged and forced shots. I want you to be comfortable through the process and do only what feels natural to you. Moreover, I try to capture your real moments. I will guide you through the entire experience so you do not have to stand there wondering what is next. The goal is to be yourselves--to be who you really are.
There's always a beauty in darkness and happiness in simplicity.
Let's be friends and create together.

Amazing Proposal !!
Shant was amazing from beginning till end! He photographed the moment I proposed to my fiance on a rainy day in Malibu. He was very responsive and responsible. He spent a lot of time with me planning the moment so that we could pull off the surprise. He even stood under the insane rain with just a jacket and his camera to make sure we captured the moment perfectly. I was convinced he would do an amazing job from the pictures I'd seen on his social media and he did not disappoint. He has an amazing moSent on 04/17/2020

Shant was great! I asked him to participate in taking pictures for my courthouse wedding. I was a bit hesitant about this because courthouse pictures could go totally wrong and not appealing or completely artsy and cool, but I still wanted to have pictures to show it to my grandkids in the future! My pictures turned out great! Shant accomplished the “artsy and cool” vibe I wanted for the pictures, yet still adding that romantic touch. I was in love with the final product! Thanks shant!Sent on 03/15/2020
