It’s me, Gabriel, the photographer. I live in Oakland, California with my partner, Loretta, our two kids, Ellis and Zelda, and Winnie the dog (not pictured). We live in a sweet Victorian that I spent years restoring. Beside for 2 kids and a dog, we keep a small flock of chickens and a couple hives of bees. We spend a good amount of time in the kitchen and make sauerkraut, bake bread, brew ginger beer, and
are constantly working on some food related thing. Biking with my kids, hot spring soaking in the desert, backyard BBQs, weeding my garden, creating, climbing things, and finding cool old stuff are a few things that I get stoked about. My kids are pretty rad. Loretta is amazing. I hate ants.
I shot my first wedding in 2002 and went whole hog, making photography my full time gig, around 2007.
In case you were wondering, I typically sport facial hair between July and January. My facial hair does not get in the way of my photography. And, I believe that a man is more than his mustache.
I would love to talk with you about photographing your wedding, family, or any interesting project you might have in mind. I mostly shoot in Northern California, but would be jazzed to join you in some exotic destination. My wedding packages start at $4,500 and include all day coverage. I have answers to many commonly asked questions on this handy sheet.
Jiah and Jordan got ready in the same room at the Claremont Hotel in Oakland. They were married in the Redwood grove at the UC Berkeley Botanical Gardens and had their reception at the conference center across the street.
