"Is it Ector or Hector?"
I answer to both ;)

I have two creative passions: music and photography.
I suck at making music but I’ve always been good at taking pictures, so I became a passionate fan of music and focused my energy on photography. I have two cats and too many LPs, more than I’ll listen to in a lifetime.


I can nerd out with the best of em, and if you want to talk Star Wars, Harry Potter, or hip-hop I’ll talk your ear off all day.

I take different approaches to each part of the day. My priority is to make you and your guests feel completely themselves around me by shooting candids while blending in and assimilating to my environment. When it’s time for family formals, I’m right there directing the scene efficiently and making sure we get those must-have pictures for mom. During portrait time, I’ll direct you without posing you and create an easy-going atmosphere for pictures that look “posed but candid” – how else are you gonna know what to do with your hands?? Haha! And during reception, you can bet I’ll be right there in the middle, singing and dancing along with all of the 80’s ballads, making your guests forget that all their drunk dance moves are being documented 😉

What have you done for me lately?

What will I do for you? I will document your wedding day with the perfect balance of real moments and formal portraits. I know when to step in to direct/guide and when to hang back and document things as they happen naturally. I want you to look like a model in your images, but I also want your photos to transport you back to how you were feeling that day. I want you to look back at your images and remember exactly why were you laughing in that picture and you immediately start smiling. I will deliver images that will make you laugh, cry, and want to relive the day all over again.

On the wedding day, I will bring a calm, chill attitude. A wedding day could be stressful, I want to be a blessing, not a burden. I want my presence to ease any anxiety and I will help in any way I can to make sure the day goes by smoothly without you having to worry about the details. I won’t be just your photographer, I’ll also be your best man, maid of honor, personal assistant, and I’ll even give a toast if I have to. It’s your one day, one day to have all the people you love together celebrating under one roof, when will this crowd be all together again, probably never. I take that responsibility very seriously. Whether it’s by showing up early, bring back up gear, helping with the wedding day nervous jitters, and performing to 100% of my creativity, I will do everything in my power to make sure that this once in a lifetime day, whether it’s a 200 guest wedding or an intimate elopement, will be remembered as nothing short of epic.

Besides one another, I will be the best decision you can make for your wedding day.  This is not something I’d ever say about myself, this is direct from my clients.  I’ve heard it over and over again, thru emails, texts with gifs, and reviews left on these sites, that I was their best decision.  And, let’s be honest.  You could get married at the fanciest venue with the most expensive dress or at your parent’s backyard with a dress from Anthropologie, and in both situations, the right photographer ( *cough* me) will deliver amazing/epic pictures, but the wrong photographer could ruin the pictures you’ll have to live with.

To quote Dr. Emmet Brown “Your future is whatever you make of it. So make it a good one, both of you”.  The future of how you’ll remember your wedding start with choosing the right photographer.
