My friends!

I am Bobby.

(And I'm stoked to have you here)

I live in Santa Cruz. Cleveland born and raised-- though I lived in the high mountains of Colorado for almost a decade too--- photographing and snowboarding and kayaking and climbing.

I love looking for the magic and the beauty of the mundane moment. I love that, moment to moment, regardless of what's happening, that there's something extraordinary to be seen.

I’m the owner and founder here at the Deep Light Company, and your main guy behind the lens (although the whole team is rad!)

I love seeing you light up and think our best work comes from the organic, unplanned, and spontaneous good. No posing and forcing— just the ease, your connection and the wildness. Thats where the magic is.

If there’s a body of water near your shoot, I’ll probably be in there neck deep attempting to get some rad image for you.

I’m big into laughter, keeping it light-hearted, looking for flow and the bright side of things— glass perpetually half-full. I also might make some mildly inappropriate ’that’s what she said’ jokes, haha.

I love when everyone is relaxed and themselves and uncensored in front of the camera-- nothing unnatural or repressed--- so that when couples look back, they just remember that fun and that ease, full of laughter and love.

When I’m not editing and shooting and scouting for the strongest, raddest locations for engagements and elopements, I’m probably basking in the sun, drinking copious amounts of tea and meditating.

And if I’m not doing that, you’ll find me surfing or out climbing and bouldering.

Let's capture what makes your hearts beat hardest, together.

And please! I invite you to look at my website at the galleries there, and to fill out that “Book me!” form if you’re inquiring!

    He'll go above and beyond to get the awesome shots!

    My husband and I do not like being in front of the camera. Well, we don't like being in front of the camera for boring, posed, stuffy, forced photos. And that's why we hired Bobby. He is super personable and made us feel at ease and natural in front of the camera. He quickly got our vibe and leaned into it. Very intuitive and talented - his photos convey this great harmony of lighting, composition, storytelling, and emotion. And we love that he's into candid shots because we really didn't want to be stopped all the time for posed photos. We didn't even know Bobby was there most of the time - it was perfect. His pricing is reasonable, great quality, great communication, and overall just an awesome guy. Thanks for getting us to have fun and enjoy being in front of the camera!

    Fun and super friendly!

    Bobby was so much fun to work with and was very helpful in picking shoot locations. My Fiancé and I are not big photo people but would definitely do a shoot again with Bobby. The shoot locations were beautiful and the photos came out amazing!

    We highly recommended.

    Bobby is a Gem!

    Bobby should be your #1 choice if you have a wedding or need epic photos. He was easy and fun to work with, was a calm voice amidst what can normally be wedding chaos, and is a genuinely great human. We’re so thankful we found this Santa Cruz gem (I’m sure he’ll travel too if you aren’t local ;) We’ve just received our sneak peek and we can’t wait for all of our photos!
