Los Angeles Wedding Photographer
I am a Los Angeles wedding photographer specializing in candid and fun photos of couples celebrating life events.
I’ll take spectacular and unique photos of you and your fiancé. Look at my portfolio. I've made hundreds of other couples look great. I'll make you look great too. And that means you’ll love your wedding photographs.
And you'll love me too–your friendly neighborhood
spiderman Los Angeles wedding photographer. I'd love to tell your story.
Let's look further down the road. One day, your children will cherish your photos. Later, your grandchildren will hang those pictures on THEIR walls. Why? Because they love you. And also because your photographs will be super duper amazing.
Don't miss seeing my favorite wedding photographs captured at local Los Angeles venues like ballrooms, cathedrals, country clubs, rooftops, and downtown warehouses.
I'm also a vocal proponent of marriage equality. Learn why the Los Angeles LGBTQ+ community matters.
When you're comparing wedding photographers and deciding what you want from your photography, you might also be considering your budget. I totally get that money matters. But don't despair!
When you hire me, you're picking a reasonably priced photographer who is also one of the best wedding photographers in Los Angeles. I hope that doesn't sound braggy. But it's true.
It can be confusing reviewing websites and emails that share basic package options, hourly rates, overtime, complicated add-ons, albums, and engagement sessions while trying to find pricing that's affordable without being cheap.
When you're thinking about pricing, you'll first need to decide on how much photography you need. Options range from just an hour or two for elopements to 4-hours, 6-hours, 8-hours, or even 10+ hours of coverage.
The next big question is how much do those hours cost and how much do you want to spend. Let's take a look at this quote from John Ruskin that nicely summarizes my opinions on wedding photography budgets.
“It's unwise to pay too much, but it's worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money, that's all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot — it can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that, you will have enough to pay for something better." – John Ruskin
Essentially, when you hire me to photograph your wedding, you're avoiding hundreds of potential issues–including the all-too-real risk of ending up with photos you don't love.
When comparing me to other photographers of my caliber and experience (apples-to-apples), you'll find that my prices are lower than fees charged by those similarly skilled photographers offering comparable products and services. That makes picking me a bargain.

LA VENUE EXPERTISE
Experience matters and I've photographed events at hundreds of wedding venues across the greater Los Angeles area. I'll make your event experience easy and relaxed.
Whether your wedding is held at a downtown LA hotel like Hotel Figueroa, Omni Los Angeles Hotel or a somewhat less-traditional venue like Smogshoppe, Carondelet House, City Club, The Ebell of Los Angeles, The Fig House, The MacArthur, The Oviatt Penthouse, or Vibiana, I have unsurpassed location expertise. My wedding venue experience can help guide you toward making better photography-related decisions.
LA Wedding Photographer Differentiators
While you're here, check out some substantive reasons why you should hire me as your wedding photographer.
Your hiring decisions shouldn't be solely based on my rescue dog ownership, my love for Starbucks coffee, my deep and abiding hate of LA traffic, my blockbuster movie enjoyment, or the fact that I like long walks on the beach.
The experience of having me photograph your wedding is as important as the images I'll create. Here are some choice words that a past client shared about me and my work at her Los Angeles wedding:
"I didn't want my photos to look like every other wedding photo I had ever seen … Rob far exceeded our expectations that day—he was fun, relaxed, and willing to roll with the punches. It felt like one of our good friends was our photographer—we were so comfortable with Rob and our family all fell in love with him too.
By the end of the night, everyone was laughing and joking with him as if he were a part of our family—he fit right in. My husband and I were still out, celebrating with our friends on the night of our wedding and Rob was home uploading photos of us from the day to Facebook.
We were SO excited and couldn't believe we were able to get a sneak peek of the images so quickly. Then, while we were on our honeymoon, he delivered the other 857 photos. We spent an entire afternoon in Bora Bora flipping through the images, each one of them better than the last." – Erika Lehmann Brown
