The WOW Factor

Creating awe-inspiring images and an astonishing experience
for one of life’s most memorable moments



The ultimate photography experience means that I am more than just a “vendor.” I’m a go-to, helpful source.

Over the years, I’ve built relationships and partnerships with local vendors in order to recommend trusted creative professionals to you. And I’ve collected resources and created how-to guides to make this process less questionable and more enjoyable for you.

You never need to worry about whether I will get “the shot” or miss an important moment. As a 20 year USMC veteran, I’m able to problem-solve my way through almost any situation. And as a photographer, I’m willing to do practically anything to capture the perfect picture.

“Rey took time leading up to our wedding day to get to know us and did a fantastic job of finding out about what was most important to use when it comes to photography. Rey took everything he learned about us and performed above and beyond our expectations.”

During our initial consultation, you’ll receive a proposal that includes a host of package options customized to your preferences. All based on the following services:

Engagement Session

Feel comfortable in front of the camera before your wedding day arrives. You’ll see how I’ll direct you. And we’ll feel even more at ease with each other from the time spent together

Wedding Album

Remember your wedding day beautifully. Every package includes an heirloom album that allows you to view your images how they’re meant to be displayed: printed.

Venue Preview

Get beautiful images in the most beautiful places. I’ll scout your venue ahead of time to get a lay of the land. And to get an idea of the best places for lighting and backdrops.

Second Photographer

Gain more images of your wedding day with the help of a second photographer. They allow my “eye” to be in two places at once. And they help with gear and lighting so I can remain focused on you.

Professional Editing

Receive a collection of images, in various styles, with a sense of depth and cohesiveness. Each edited image maintains a high quality and attention to detail you’ll be proud to share and showcase.

Portrait Preview

We want the first time you see your wedding photos to be an EXPERIENCE! First we prepare a slideshow of all your wedding images to view at our studio. Then we meet in person, pop champagne, and relive your wedding days through the beautiful images we’ve captured for you!

Digital Gallery

Receive your high-resolution images via email immediately after your portrait preview. You’ll note which photos are your favorite and to have included in your album.

Mobile App

Access your favorite images directly on your phone. And because the app is accessible offline, you can easily download, save and share them with your friends and family from anywhere at any time.

Timeline Assistance

Receive images of the important moments and details you want. I’ll provide you with sample timelines and guidance so you know how to budget time. And we’ll review the timeline together to ensure nothing gets missed.

“The photos he took were phenomenal, as well as beautifully and professionally presented. I could not have asked for a better experience than what he gave us. He helped us so much with everything. And the artistry in the photos is breathtaking.”

Heirloom Albums & Prints


Jenny and I got married back in 2008 in a judge’s private chambers at the San Diego courthouse.​​​​​​​

We had no family, friends or photographer present. So, I asked the judge if he would take a picture of us on my flip phone.

Where that picture is today, I have no idea. And believe me when I say, I would give almost anything to have it.

I’ve spent years curating professional labs for the best artisan wedding albums and custom wall art in the industry. Once you see these in person you’ll know you won’t find these any where else.


Built to last up to 400 years, these works of art truly stand the test of time. And will become the most cherished centerpieces in your home for decades to come.

You can’t lose prints nearly as easily as you can digital files. And therein lies the importance of preserving your photos:

So that you don’t lose your memories.

And so that you have them to pass down to future generations.

“The quality of his shots and the final masterpiece he creates is so very unique. His talent continues to blossom – creating special photos that are displayed all throughout our house. Photos like these are a must-have!”
