Since the first photo was captured in the early 1820s, people have realized the importance of them. We are fascinated with creating memories. We want to freeze special moments to be able to transport ourselves back in time to that exact moment. As a fine art photographer, I specialize in creating a story that tells the love between people in a tangible way – full of life and beauty. I chose to create this art by using film photography, which gives me the ability to create a timeless look that is refined and elegant. This allows for my clients to be able to enjoy their photos for many decades to come.
"Carlos photographed our engagement shoot in July and wedding in September. We had a short engagement and he fit us into his schedule. He was very professional and fun! I think making any situation fun is an important skill to have as a photographer. He found this beautiful island on the Columbia River Gorge to take our engagement pictures at. The photos are high quality! We enlarged one photo to put it on a canvas in our living room, and it still looks amazing. Carlos was also very timely in getting our pictures edited and back to us. We have recommended him to friends after our shoot, and their photos came out just as great!"

"Carlos was highly recommended to me by a friend, Carlos took her wedding photos. My Fiance and I were a little nervous about getting our engagement photos taken, we're camera shy. Carlos emailed us before the photo shoot to inform us about what to expect and what to plan for, as far as locations, outfits, hair and overall appearance. Carlos has a fun, kind, outgoing and gentle character that immediately eased our stress. The photo shoot turned into a memorable (and FUN!!) experience, my fiance and I ended up having a great time. Not only was the experience with Carlos so positive but the photos were AMAZING!!!! They're currently posted everywhere in our home. We will cherish these photos forever."

"Carlos is amazing and so wonderful to work with! We were absolutely in love with our engagement photos. Not only were he & his wife incredibly personable and fun, but they really made us feel right at home in front of the camera - and it shows. Our photos feel very "us" ... plus his creative eye is amazing. We will treasure these photos forever. Carlos does stunning work and we were so grateful to work with him!"
