I’m a Los Angeles based photographer who loves weddings and good times! I look for the unexpected and the extraordinary -- whether it’s a wedding, engagement session, special event, or everyday life.

I remember being in a creative writing class and sitting with a blank sheet of paper trying to think of a story. After a few hours and a few attempts, I realized that I was the worst writer in history of the world. Ok, it wasn’t that bad, but thankfully, I dealt with it and discovered that my real strength was in visual story telling, and that I had a love and a knack for comic books, sketching, TV, and graphic design. However, I never imagined that it would be my passion for photography would take me to exotic places and allow me to meet some of the most amazing life changing people.

To me, it doesn’t matter if your wedding is big or small, it’s yours, and I want to make your experience fun, memorable, and epic! Renowned photographer Ansel Adams once said, “You don’t take a photograph, you make it”. That’s what I’d love to do for you.

Tauran was named one of the Top 50 wedding photographers by Cosmopolitan Bride Magazine, and recognized by WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International) as Master Photographer with the degree of Accolade of Outstanding Achievement (AOPA) and Accolade of Photographic Mastery (APM). He’s also won 40 WPPI print awards, 2 Fearless awards, and WeddingWire’s Bride’s Choice Award for 4 years for outstanding customer reviews. His work has graced such distinguished publications as Cosmopolitan Bride, The New York Times, Huffington Post, Style Me Pretty, International Masters of Photography, Style Unveiled, California Wedding Day, and several others. Tauran has shot over 350 weddings as both a photographer and a filmmaker and works regularly in Southern & Northern California, all over the continental US, Hawaii, Paris, Tokyo, Mexico, Hong Kong, the Caribbean, several other friendly places, and a few unfriendly!

Tauran is a phenomenal photographer with incredible talent and vision. He made our wedding day photography so much fun and we laughed and were very relaxed. He was on time, customized our photos exactly how we wanted them, and captured our most precious memories throughout our whole wedding. We highly recommend him, handsdown, to anyone who wants a top-notch photographer. If we could give him 10 stars, we would!

Tauran is simply wonderful. He is well-known in photography circles for his quality of work, commitment to his clients, and easy-going personality. Not only does he has an eye for capturing the perfect photo, but he tells you exactly what poses and faces to make, which was exactly what we were looking for. He goes the extra mile to get you what you need and is flexible with scheduling beyond belief. His willingness to travel is icing on the cake. No one else compares. High recommends!

Tauran was amazing! Not only did they take great photos but they were very professional and seemed like they have done this many times before. The wedding day was very stress free as they knew exactly what they were doing and exactly where they wanted to take the perfect shots (they scoped out the site ahead of time). We would definitely recommend them to friends and family.

Tauren was the perfect photographer for our wedding! He was so easy to work with and accommodated our needs above and beyond our expectations. We did both our engagement and wedding pictures with Tauren and the pictures blew us (and everyone we know) away. He perfectly captured the style and look I was going for in both shoots (one classy downtown LA and the other romantic chic garden wedding). He brought a calming effect to the wedding craziness and was very effective with the time we had to get as many shots as possible. We were so so lucky to have had Tauren as our photographer and we will cherish these images for the rest of our lives. We would highly recommend him to any and everyone!

Tauran was the best wedding photographer that I could have asked for! I knew about him through a few mutual friends and would recommend him to all my friends! He takes his time, you can tell that he loves his job, and he knows how to work with his subjects! He might not always be the most responsive over email, but be patient, he's a busy guy who spends a lot of time in his products. More importantly, he's always dependable which is what matters. He's open to suggestions and very flexible, but he also knows how to take the lead. My photos were absolutely stunning and I received SO many compliments on them. Through out the wedding day and even after, my friends and family kept commenting on how professional and hard working Tauran was! They were surprised at his exceptional work ethic and how much he cared, that says something! He captured the sweetest memories and the true joy of the wedding day!

Tauran was easy to work with and his work is amazing. He was flexible when we were trying to schedule our engagement session and returned photos in a timely manner. Although we did not request any adjustments to our package/pricing, he was flexible in our request for an alternative payment schedule, which was greatly appreciated. We requested more "natural" looking photos and he did capture the obligatory posed family/wedding party photos beautifully. He was professional and was able to catch many happy moments of our wedding without continually stopping us to "pose," giving us the opportunity to thoroughly enjoy our guests and reception. He also had a great assistant who helped with capturing different angles and beautiful details. Tauran was great in directing poses during our photo sessions and has a quirky, easy-going personality that helped put us at ease in front of the camera. His photos are nothing short of gorgeous and he gave us a set of very personal and real pictures... No wedding mill or cookie cutter work here.

This review is LONG overdue, but we honestly can't thank Tauran enough! We absolutely love our engagement and wedding day photos! :) Even though a wedding day can be such a blur, Tauran made us feel at ease and was an absolute pleasure to be around. He captured special moments that we will cherish forever!
