Hey, I’m Christian! One of our New York team photographers. I’m thrilled to be a part of the OLAS Team and I can’t wait to meet you and hear more about your wedding day vision. After shooting dozens of weddings, my love for wedding photography has only grown stronger.
My photography style is candid and artistic with a fine-art focus. Emotional candids are the heartbeat of a wedding album that takes you right back to the moment. Just as important are the styled portraits that you’ll pass down for generations and one of my strengths is posing couples so that you look natural and not actually posed at all.
Lighting can be one of the greatest assets, and greatest challenges, to a photographer during a wedding day. During my Photography studies in undergrad and through my experience in shooting 50+ real weddings, I’ve learned how to use available light to make the most of a portrait session… and how to create better light when it’s simply not ideal.
I was born in Puerto Cortez, Honduras and moved to the states when I was young. However, even being born into a Hispanic family I can’t speak Spanish! I can juggle and love playing sports – soccer, basketball & football are just some of my favorites. Traveling around the world is a huge passion and India is one of my favorite destinations. I’m married to the love of my life, Ana, and we added a member to the family named Bleu – a cuddly, miniature, blue-eyed Australian Shepard.
When I’m not shooting weddings, you’ll find me outdoors but still with a camera on-hand. People are my favorite photography subjects – good thing I’m in wedding photography!
I LOVE meeting new people and working with large crowds, especially within the energy of a wedding day. My flexible work style lends well to hectic timelines and my goal is always to make sure my couples get every shot they want while feeling totally at ease.
I can’t wait to meet you!!
