I love to keep things simple. Super Type-B. Light-hearted and easy. I love to see the beauty in things--- to see the magic in the mundane and the extraordinary in the ordinary. I loves the heavy light of sunset and sunrise. I swoon for thunder, lighting and rain and mist in the redwoods. I love to hear and see people laugh . I love to be outside, in the sun and under stars, by bonfires and in sleeping bags. Climbing and surfing and meditating. Staring at the sun and stars and waves. Life is beautiful.
I feel so privelidged to share the days with couples in their celebration of love. I love to see everyone relax and to be themselves in front of the lens. A little strange and beautiful, full of laughter and love--- all of the good with none of the self-criticism. That's the real beauty, when everyone is just themselves. Natural and organic, spontaneous and wild. Hearts full. Authentic and true. These are where the raddest photos are. A little unplanned. Loads of light and heart. Not a whole lot of posing-- just all that relaxed, spontaneous good.
Let's make something beautiful together.
Bobby is a fineart-trained portrait and landscape photographer who was raised in the east, was tempered by the high mountains of colorado and now makes his home by the redwoods and by the waves in Santa Cruz, California.
Bobby is based out of Santa Cruz but digs traveling to new locations, so please inquire about out-of-state travel packages.

Could not ask for more!
Amazing, amazing, amazing!!!
Bobby was wonderful from the get-go, right from when we asked for a quotation for a pre-wedding shoot + wedding/reception shoot. He gave us sound advice to separate the 2 shoots, provided us with a bunch of ideas, sample photos, and reference points so that we could pick the kind of venue/vibe we liked best for our pre-wedding/elopement shoot, then brought us to a gorgeous stretch of untouched beach during sunset for it. Being somewhat awkward individuals, Bobby made us feel so comfortable throughout the shoot with minimal directing, and captured so many beautiful moments of us. Ditto for our actual wedding shoot a couple weeks after at La Playa Carmel - He was professional, so friendly, and took so many candid shots that we absolutely LOVED. Bobby killed it for us and we're so grateful to have found him. If there's one thing you need to do for your special day(s), you need to hire Bobby as your photographer!!Sent on 01/24/2020

Easy to work with and wonderful results!
Bobby was an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the entire process. Planning a wedding is never going to be stress free, but he made sure that he and his team never added any to the process. His portfolio likely speaks better to his artistic abilities and technical skills as a photographer than a written review ever will, but we were absolutely thrilled with the results from both our wedding and the rehearsal dinner! His disarming demeanor brings a genuine sense of calm to a day that will undoubtedly be busy, and his nack for putting people at ease shines through in his work - I honestly can’t believe how relaxed, natural and happy some of these shots came out as we scrambled to put on our dream wedding. We couldn’t recommend him more highly, both for wedding and just general portrait and lifestyle photography as well. My sister ended up hiring him for a family photoshoot because she liked him so much, and her shots came out beautiful!Sent on 12/17/2019

Bobby was amazing to work with from the very start! We were referred by a friend and after taking a look at his portfolio, Bobby became our first choice.
I was blown away by how he communicated through email, it was easy to get a feel for what kind of person he is and what it would be like to work with him. Walking through the contract and communicating was easy, Bobby's enthusiasm is infectious.
We did an engagement shoot and it totally blew out minds! Bobby's easy going attitude put us at ease and we ended up having a lot of fun, not to mention the photos were amazing. We knew then that we definitely hired the right person to shoot our wedding.
Our wedding photos turned out incredible! Bobby really captured the important moments but also caught a lot of candid moments as well. 100% would hire Bobby again for any special occasion.
