I'm a LA- based destination wedding & event photographer. I consider myself a laid-back guy with an intense passion for people and travel. While I often photograph luxurious, black-tie weddings, I never forget that it's a celebration and a party. My photography philosophy is simple: every amazing photograph starts with connection - a connection with my couples, their loved ones, their crazy friends, and the natural beauty of their destination location.
What's a current goal you are working towards?
Getting back to work! As you can imagine, COVID has done a number on destination weddings across the world, but I'm happy to see much smaller events starting to make a major comeback for the rest of 2020 and upcoming 2021.
What are you currently learning to do?
I'm now in the jewelry business! I started a new brand (www.themaskeraide.com) producing chains & leather necklaces for face masks. I've learned a ridiculous amount this year about Direct to Consumer business, Etsy/Shopify strategies, supply chain management from China, you name it. I'm glad to say I've put all my free time this year into something productive!
What's a quote that inspires you?
My favorite quote is:
"It's no fun if it's too easy."
This is actually a quote of mine, though I may have heard something similar in the past. I've found that after photographing weddings for over a decade now, the easy, cookie-cutter, predictable weddings are like second nature for me, but really just aren't that challenging and don't push me to create better work. My difficult, flexible, ever-changing weddings are my absolute favorite as I find myself excelling the most under pressure. I absolutely live for a challenge.
Krakatoa is designed to be flushed with your skin. There is no need to buy a size larger, as the front pouch eliminates "The Squeeze", and the 3-way stretch fabric conforms gently around your body. You want it snug, not loose, for maximum comfort.
Measure your waist size: Wrap a measuring tape around your navel, at the narrowest part of your torso. Place a finger in between the tape and your body, for a comfortable fit.
*One thing to note, our XL is a bit larger, covering much of XL and XXL sizes.
In Between Sizes? Krakatoa has a front pouch that conforms with your anatomy, so even if the undies feel snug around your legs and butt, your package is still comfy, so go for a smaller size for a snug fit. If you don't like it or the size was not correct, no worries, we will send you another pair on your correct size at no cost to you.
Krakatoa No Bullshit Guarantee: Our goal is to give you unparalleled comfort on your underwear, so if you don’t get the fit you want on your first pair, send us an email at email@example.com, we will send you a different size at no charge.
