Roseville wedding photographer -- updated June 2013


Biography ... About the photographer

We just love to photograph weddings! Weddings are people at their best - and we get to be almost a part of the family for that day.

We help a bride's photography and wedding day to turn out great! It is an honor.

During college Doug worked as a news photographer & editor in Los Angeles. He frequently photographed celebrities, the highlight of which included having lunch with comedian Steve Allen. (Steve Allen preceded Johnny Carson and Jay Leno as hosts of the Tonight Show.)  In person Steve Allen was just a "normal" guy and a committed Christian. Doug was un-religious at the time but had been astonished by this celebrity's complete lack of a Hollywood ego.

Doug graduated UCLA with a bachelor of arts degree, finding his first job out of college in Hollywood's motion picture industry. Today Doug performs wedding & architectural photography based in Roseville.

Learning under fire...

Years ago Doug worked for a wedding photography studio, observing the successes and occasional catastrophes of other staff photographers. Doug's reputation became: He delivered reliable, quality pictures every time, regardless of the pressure or problems encountered.

Today - Doug is among the most experienced wedding photographers in the area.

Doug's style is easy going, we work well with people, we honor special requests, we keep cool under pressure, we carry backup equipment, and take pictures that come out great under every circumstance.

We hope to have the opportunity to serve you!


 Photography Style

Doug's photography style is 75% photojournalistic. That's so we don't monopolize all your time on the wedding day.

Plus -- 25% of his style adds "classic" poses which puts family members together in some group photos.
Although he likes to be very informal, Doug knows it's important to reliably capture those family shots too.




Just back from Arizona where we encountered an earthquake
and gravitational anomaly but increased our sensa yuma.
