The Wedding Standard is dedicated to bring to light all of the talented wedding artists and beautiful venues here in California. We feature wedding professionals that are the best of the best, people who don’t just work for a paycheck, but who work for a love for their craft and the couples they serve. Artists interviewed here are those that don’t settle for mediocrity in what they do, they see their business not only as a service but more importantly as an art form. They are those who are passionate about their craft and are raising a standard of excellence in the wedding industry. Other than having an online platform to showcase local talent, our community gets together regularly building friendship and synergistic relationships making us stronger and more collectively creative before and on the wedding day!
I’ve been photographing weddings since I was not even old enough to have a glass of wine! For me photography has been always been more of a calling than a occupation. I’ve believed since the day I started my business that I was made to be a wedding photographer. Being a dreamer by nature I pursued a career with passion and excellence for over 14 years! Along the way I've discovered a passion for helping others accomplish their goals and reach for their dreams, thus The Wedding Standard was born back in 2008. Since then it has been grown into something much bigger than me interviewing a few of my friends. If you're interested check out my wedding photography.
