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 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.

Tauran is a great photographer to work with. He did my engagement and wedding pictures. Our engagement pictures were in SF. He flew up to take them for us and was super flexible with the length of the engagement pictures since we went to three locations. He's very engaging and funny and helped put us at ease when we were talking pictures and were great at showing us how to pose. During the wedding, he was super accommodating and his assistants were great. Everyone was super friendly. We also rented his Photo Booth and he was nice enough to let us go little over the time since people were still taking pictures. Overall, he's a great photographer to work with. Very responsive. We just received our pictures and they looked awesome! So glad my friend recommended him!

Words cannot express how impressed we were with Tauran's talent, kindness and flexibility. After seeing the wedding photos that Tauran shot for our mutual friend years ago, before we were even engaged, my husband and I already knew we wanted him as our photographer! My husband and I both loved his style and quality, and knew that he would be perfect for our destination wedding in Hawaii. He has such a warm and easy going personality. He is so easy to get along with as a friend and just as easy to work with as a photographer. For someone who is so busy and successful at what he does, I have no idea how he was able to be so flexible and accommodating with us. We had quite a few obstacles to overcome, including having to convince our venue to allow a non-preferred vendor to shoot our wedding, issues revolved around traveling to Hawaii, and having to pair him up with a second photographer who he had never worked with before! Throughout all of these setbacks, Tauran was SOOO helpful and adaptable, that it made our lives as stress-free as possible (where photography was involved) during the whole wedding planning process. Upon receiving our photos, I also noticed him taking the time out to touch up photos (beyond the usual post-processing that other photographers do) to ensure that they were perfect. All in all, we had a great experience working with Tauran and would definitely recommend him to anyone for their wedding! Thanks so much Tauran!

Tauran was excellent! We contacted him on short notice for our wedding that we organized in two weeks. He was able to organize and shoot my large family flawlessly. He's laid back, has a command of his craft and goes with the flow. The photos came out wonderfully. I would not hesitate to refer him to other brides and family for their events.

We got married last spring and Tauran did a fantastic job shooting our wedding! If you are considering Tauran and have checked out his website, it's self evident how beautiful his photos are and how talented he is. It was really important to us that our photos had a timeless quality and Tauran delivered them beautifully. Beyond that, Tauran was so easy to work with. As a hands on bride - from the engagement photos to the wedding - I was pretty specific in what mood and tone I had wanted with the photos and Tauran was happy to work with me on my vision and executed them perfectly. (He even brought a medium format film camera to our wedding without my asking for it ...and the film photos came out so warm and lovely. That was a real bonus for me!) Needless to say, he was punctual, responsive and professional. With so many vendors to juggle for the wedding, Tauran was really a peace of mind; I didn't have to worry about him once and I knew that we would have amazing pictures to remember the day of. We can't say enough good things about Tauran - even now, months after our wedding, I'm still checking out Tauran's blog because the pictures that he takes are so amazing.

As wedding photographers ourselves, we were very picky with who we chose to shoot our wedding. We wanted to find someone that we could trust as well as someone who would make shooting fun (since this was our chance to be in front of the camera). Tauran is that complete package. We knew we were getting quality photos and he knew how to make us feel comfortable and look great in front of the camera. He was always available whenever we had questions or needed him before the wedding day and did an amazing job day of. We highly recommend him as your wedding photographer!

Tauran was wonderful to work with. Our wedding was really early in the morning, but he and his assistant were so accommodating and willing to work with the day's timeline. Tauran is very professional, yet laid back, very talented and has such a wonderful eye for capturing the most important moments of the day. From the engagement pictures, to the wedding day and finally receiving the wedding album, we did not have any regrets working with him and EVERYONE loves our pictures. We couldn't have asked for a better photographer to take part in one of the most important days of our lives.

I'm writing this review 3 years late, but I felt compelled to finally write one! Tauran is AMAZING! I've seen so many different kinds of wedding photography since the wedding, and I still think Tauran is the best. My hubby and I were both nervous when we had to take our engagement photos, but Tauran made the whole experience fun and entertaining. He's definitely not afraid to strike a pose to show you what to do! On the day of the wedding, you barely even notice that Tauran and his assistant are around snapping. Then you receive your photos and you think "OMG! He was able to capture that?!" My photos are so stunning that I still look at them almost everyday, and we still receive compliments! Booking Tauran was the best decision I made for the wedding, and I'm so honored that some of our photos earned him some accolades!

People always say the photographer is the most important vendor for your wedding because you get to keep those photos forever. After working with Tauran, I understood how important that advice was for me. His pictures captured all the beautiful moments throughout the day and still have me and others oooh/ahh'ing over them. Tauran's photos are a representation of him as an artist. He sees beauty in things others don't notice and has an impeccable eye. He is professional, friendly, funny, and accommodating. Weddings are so stressful as it is, but I never had to worry about giving him grief or getting grief from him! He rolled with all the punches and made everything work! For example, during our wedding day photoshoot, we got kicked off of a college campus because we didn't request a permit to be there (we didn’t know we needed one!) It put me in a horrible mood and changed all my plans. But Tauran kept cool and calm and said we'll just drive around the area and find another place. The impromptu pictures ended up being my favorite pictures from the wedding because, again, Tauran was able to find beauty in things that I would haven't even have noticed! I can't say enough how wonderful he was and I have already recommended him to many friends who have all had the same experience. He is consistent, reliable, and just such an amazing person! You won't regret hiring him!
