I am a Washington DC based photojournalist and wedding photographer who has been photographing here and abroad for over 20 years. I strive to make beautiful, elegant and creative photographs that capture the emotion, candid moments, and unique personality of your special day. I do so in a non intrusive and fun way that keeps everyone at ease. 

Raised by Argentine parents in a small town in Vermont, my interest in photography began with a family trip to Buenos Aires when I was 10 years old. 
I was intrigued by my uncle's stunning black and white images on the walls and since that moment I was hooked. Once back in Vermont my father reinforced my interest as he would develop his prints in the bathroom as I watched in amazement the magic unfold before me.  My excitement and desire to capture this magic with a camera continues to this day. 

Later as a young adult I spent a few life changing months in rural parts of Mexico. This reignited my passion for photography and also led to a desire to help others in countries where there are less oportunities. I then went on to study Spanish in Barcelona for a year and soon after I joined the Peace Corps in Honduras.
After the Peace Corps I studied photojournalism and received a masters degree in Education at Indiana University. I have freelanced for many different publications including the Washington Post and the Christian Science Monitor. I have photographed lobster divers in Honduras, follow president Obama on his train, made portraits of the famous and not so famous here in beautiful Washington DC and I have traveled the world documenting peoples lives for various publications and NGO's.  I live with my son in the Mt. Pleasant area of NW Washington DC. 

I am open to designing a package that suits your wedding vision and budget. I will give you the high resolution images on a hard drive-no water marks. Your images are yours to use and to keep for future generations.

Full-day 8 hours coverage with Michael and a second photogpher (6 hours)
600-700 high resolution edited images on a drive
Password-protected web gallery 
A set of 10 low resolution images to share with family and friends within days after the wedding. 

My packages start at:  $3,500
