SAN FRANCISCO & LOS ANGELES
LUXURY DOCUMENTARY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

Mixed medium photography for artful couples looking for a blended, diverse approach to wedding documentation.

Available in California & Worldwide

Hey, how's it goin'?

My name's Aryk (on the left). I'm a wedding and portrait photographer based in my hometown of Santa Rosa. I’m a self-taught artist who built my skills from the ground up. Something you might notice about me is that I operate a bit differently than most other wedding photographers. 

My approach to weddings is that of a documentarian and a witness. My couples are folks who value quality and intimacy, and want their wedding day illustrated with a unique album filled with artful candids, punctuated by breathtaking fine art portraiture. ​I operate with a relaxed demeanor and
 work hard to document weddings without pulling my subjects out of their moments, because the most important thing for any wedding is that you are, and remain, present for it.

I am a diverse, mixed medium artist: I juggle cameras and mediums ranging from film to digital to polaroid, and use every tool in my arsenal to tell your unique story. This means my style, while distinctive, is not fixed: I adjust to you and your story, because my clients and their weddings are too unique to be painted with broad strokes.

I am your personal journalist, illustrator, and resource.

MARGARET + EVAN

"Aryk is the best photographer we have ever worked with! Aryk captured all aspects of our September San Francisco wedding and every single image he captured was perfect. We wanted a gallery consisting mainly of candids and street-style images, and Aryk delivered just that.

My husband and I are not very comfortable in front of the camera; Aryk made the entire experience not only comfortable but also enjoyable and so fun! Aryk is incredibly calm, kind, fun, easy-going, creative, and thoughtful, professional, and punctual. He responded very quickly to emails not only from us, but also from our family members who had questions once we received our gallery.
