As a portrait photographer, I like to take photos that are authentic to the person photographed. I prefer natural light and genuine expressions.
I like to meet a person, get to know their personality, then do my best to express that in a photo.

I like to talk with a client and get to know what style they prefer and what their expectations are to see if we are a good fit.
I have an A.A. degree in art with a concentration on photography - my background in film photography directly influences the way I photograph things digitally (although I still do try to make time to shoot film) and the way I like to compose and light my subjects.
After doing a lot of film photography in college, I worked at a portrait studio for a couple of years about a decade ago. I was asked by a friend-of-a-friend to photograph her wedding in Southern California in 2008 and have been getting steady referrals to all of my clients thus far since then.
Look at photography that you like on instagram, pinterest, in a book, at an art gallery etc. to get to know what styles you do and don't like - it might make it easier to find a local photographer that fits what you're looking for.
