Weddings are absolutely the sweetest thing to watch, seeing two people forever getting to love each other and getting to know each other. The wedding is a milestone in someone’s life, the mark of love and togetherness and permanence. It would, of course, be the best life to hop from one wedding to another, eat the fest too and get paid for it. This guy is who is a wedding photographer, has made his confessions and his struggle from being a homeless teenager to becoming an award winning wedding photographer.
“I picked up my first camera when I was 11 years old. I was completely enamored by the skateboarding culture, and industry photographers at the time. I dreamed of photographing skateboarding for a living and tried relentlessly to make it in the skateboarding industry.
By the time I was 16, I dropped out of high school and was living on the streets of southern California. Sleeping in public parks and friends’ couches, still pursuing my dream of being a skateboard photographer,” he said.

He also mentioned that when he turned 18, he could still not be a professional skateboarding photographer. So, this homeless teenager decided to bring up a change. He picked up his camera and went to San Francisco, and then tried wedding photography and became an award winning photographer. He lived outside his car for weeks and used Starbucks as his office. Using his skateboarding portfolio as his skill display, he is now a full-time wedding photographer.
His happiness is in his words, “Today, I am 24 years old. I have traveled to 12 countries, on 4 continents all because of wedding photography. I am so proud to say that I have the greatest job I could have ever imagined. Even better than shooting skateboarding for a living!”
