Hi there, I have had a love of photography even before I intentionally started taking pictures as a photographer. I remember taking portraits of my friends and printing them out on film and being amazed at being able to capture moments! The event that led me to become a photographer was when I was looking for a wedding photographer. I became enamored with the beauty of weddings. It was not until had my first son in 2008 that I purchased a DSLR with hopes of becoming a good photographer. Ever since then, it's been an amazing journey. I am primarily an event photographer and have shot weddings, sweet sixteen's, and of course birthday parties. I currently am obsessed with street photography and also find portrait work very fulfilling. My goal in for client sessions is to make them as comfortable as possible so that we can capture the essence of who you are! Please note, due to the COVID 19 pandemic, I will be wearing a mask as well as doing outdoor shoots only.

    Our wedding and reception were 10/11/19-10/12/19. Alvin and Jose were our videography dream come true! They were prompt with time, if not early, to capture every single getting ready detail. They stayed later than you can ask any videographer to stay, to ensure we were satisfied. They made suggestions, but also took direction well. They are so personable, friendly, and organized. They made sure to capture every special moment of our wedding and reception. What made them even more fantastic, was their excitement and passion for recording our event. They were as enthusiastic as we were, as the bride and groom. That genuine pleasure for their craft, made them the reason we selected them to work with us. We could not have asked for better videographers! Thank you so much Alvin and Jose!

    Alvin was the videographer for my sister's wedding. He was extremely professional and his work was top notch. I appreciated that he took into account our input (songs, certain footage) to create the video. There was also a very quick turnaround time to receive still photos and the movie. I would definitely recommend him for future weddings and events.

    Alvin made all of my wedding dreams come true. I got married almost 3 years ago, and I still watch and show off my wedding video. The level of professionalism was beyond compare. Alvin made sure to answer every question asked in order for us to have exactly what we envisioned for our wedding video. Alvin went above and beyond to help ensure that no guests were uncomfortable with a bunch of cameras in the way....etc. I’ve been to weddings where the ceremony is completely taken over by the videographer and cameras, but our wedding was nothing like that. We still got incredible shots, without all of the distraction of running around and cameras in the way. I’m so grateful that Alvin gave us a lifelong gift that we will be able to share with our son and all of our family. We HIGHLY recommend Alvin for all videography needs. I’ve used this company for more than just my wedding and have been pleased EVERY SINGLE TIME! Thank you, Alvin!!!! Until next time... ;)

    I’ve been working with Alvin for years! He’s a genius behind the lens!!! He has excellent knowledge on what lens’ to use, the environment, setting, and patience. Whenever I need some new pictures for my portfolio, he’s the first guy I call. Amazing talent, and will eventually be considered top notch with many of the greatest photographers across the globe! I highly recommend!
