Wedding Photography

"I wanted to take the opportunity to say thank you for all you did to make our wedding perfect... Everything your hands touched turned out stunningly well...from the engagements photos capturing our pre-wedding glow, to the beautiful bridal portrait, to the wonderful pictures of the big day itself... Someday when the pitter-patter of little feet arrive we plan to introduce them to you and let you work your magic!"

- Amy & Hung Nguyen

"On behalf of my family I would like to thank you for the outstanding job you did with our daughter's wedding photography. The pictures are really great and you were able to capture in photos the happiness of that day. My daughter and her husband are so pleased with all the pictures. I appreciate your professionalism and the easy way you were everywhere and yet unnoticed - now that's talent!"

Historical Sketch


The Studio was established in the Spring of 1990. As the creative light of photography dawned upon Gene a life-long interest in the camera morphed into a professional passion.

A crystalizing desire to excel focused on the pursuit of the light in a lens.

It began with an eye to the landscape around him and continues in the ongoing discovery of the human form in every stage of life.

Over the 20 odd years that Gene has been practicing his craft the community of 'client/friends' grows and spawns the creative worth of photographic memories.
