TIMELESS, ORGANIC, GENUINE
FINE ART ROMANTIC PHOTOGRAPHY
FOR WEDDINGS, COUPLES & FAMILIES

Hey, how's it goin'?

My name's Aryk (pronounced like Eric), I'm a Sonoma County wedding and portrait photographer based in my hometown of Santa Rosa. I’m a self-taught artist and professional who built my skills from the ground up. I have a love of photographing people, especially in capturing the genuine moments between them. My skills in photojournalism and street photography combined with my love of fine art portraiture are the foundation of my wedding photography. 

I've been in the wedding industry since I was fifteen. I've been everything from a waiter, to a cook, to a photobooth operator, to a photographer. Having spent time in many of the cogs of the industry, I know what makes a wedding tick: communication and teamwork. My role as a photographer is not just to take photos. I'm here to answer questions, provide support, tell stories, sometimes pet some dogs, and produce an album of artwork and documentation unique to you and your wedding day.

 

I am your personal journalist, illustrator, and resource. 

And I think we're going to get along great.

— for their 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.”
