I specialize in capturing classic weddings, fun family photo sessions, celebratory B'nai Mitzvah, and influential events for political candidates and companies.
Born in Peru, and now based in Washington, D.C., I love traveling and dining at every oyster bar along the way. I can’t wait to team up with you and capture your personal piece of history.

We could all use a pointer or two on posing. Whether you’re at a wedding, gala, or having someone snap a quick iPhone photo, here are some tips:
Items in pockets – Take the items out of your front pockets (like phone or keys) and move them to the back pocket. The shape of your phone and keys are noticeable and/or bulky.
Button your blazer – Follow the blazer rule: if you’re sitting down, unbutton. If you’re standing up, button, but only the top button. If you have three buttons, the middle one is optional.
Hand placement – The easy option is to leave your hands beside you. The “chic” option is to put them in your pants pocket. If you’re posing with someone else, and you’re close with them, place one hand in the middle of their back.
Angle your feet – Point your toes towards your partner if there is someone with you. The angle is a bit more flattering than straight forward.
Below are a few examples of gentlemen posing.
