SAN FRANCISCO, SONOMA & DESTINATION WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Mixed medium photography for artful couples looking for a blended, diverse approach to wedding documentation.
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 weddings are too important to be painted with broad strokes.
I am your personal journalist, illustrator, and resource.

— for their Marin wedding
“Working with Aryk was amazing! He's thoughtful, punctual, professional, intuitive, kind, creative and every good thing you'd want a person to be who's going to capture a one-of-a-kind day. He was a lovely presence to have at the wedding, so many guests commented afterward how great he was, how friendly but also unobtrusive, and how smoothly he moved through the event. The photos he took are fantastic! He seemed to understand exactly where to be, all the time, and captured so many great moments that we didn't even know were happening. Going through the photos later was like being guests at our own wedding! The night passed so quickly, enjoying those later was gold.”
