The roots of my Fine Art approach stretch back to my childhood. Born in Mexico and raised on a horse ranch in Solvang, California. I grew up in a world of warmth and light. My childhood is full of memories that color my work today.
People often ask me how I developed my style, and how I create images that stand out in today's highly competitive wedding market. Well, I am a Fine Art Wedding photographer. My approach applies fine art photography to the living, breathing, fast-moving phenomenon that is a wedding. For me, it is all about making something beautiful. Ultimately, my goal is to craft vibrant, energetic, fine art images that are as unique as the people in the photographs. Im humbled to say that I have been published in Many Magazines around the world, including Grace Ormonde Wedding Style, Elegant Bride, Instyle Weddings, Inside Weddings, Brides Magazine, Modern Bride, Martha Stewart Weddings, Brides, Pacific Weddings, Southern Weddings, Cosmo Bride, PDN, American Photo, and many more around the world.
American Photo Magazine named Villa 1 of the top 10 wedding photographers in the world in 2008. PDN named Villa 1 of the most influential photographers of our decade.
