Alright a little bit about me. First and foremost I love Jesus, he's a pretty big deal and one of the main reasons I love to film weddings. Epic love stories are kind of my thing and there is no better picture of that than a wedding, your wedding! I am an OC native and I started my film career over 10 years ago in high school filming for the Video Yearbook. This jump started my passion and led me to attain a Bachelors of Film at Cal State Fullerton. And, well, I've been carrying around a camera ever since. Ok time for the speed round: I love my beautiful wife who is my better half, an amazing teacher, and a kick-ass acrobat. I love traveling, the crazier the better. I love to perform as an acrobat, ask me to do a backflip! I have a terrible time saying no to sweets, who doesn't. And boardgames, lots and lots of boardgames.

Hi! I’m Ariel. I’m a wedding photographer and videographer based in Southern California. On July 6th, 2014 I married my best friend Nikki, who is by far the smartest, most beautiful, and funniest girl I’ve ever known. Yup. I definitely married up! Out of high school I started my own small business and it’s been one of the most fun and rewarding experiences of my entire life. I love talking with people, meeting new people, and just people in general. Capturing moments and telling stories comes second nature to me, and I love being able to create images that are authentic, timeless, and beautiful. I love God, traveling, BBQ, fishing, Star Wars, and apple pie. So there’s a little bit about me, and I look forward to meeting you!

I have been in love with stories my whole life, be it found in a film, book, photo, or painting, and am passionate about telling them myself. My desire to tell better stories led me to the School for Film and Television at Chapman University where I received my BF in Film Production. I have spent the last 12 years producing video stories, and especially love capturing people’s special life moments. A wedding is such a personal and intimate moment between two people and I am thrilled to help couples capture and remember that moment their entire lives.
