My passion (more like obsession) for wedding photography isn't just a job; it's where my soul truly sings. Immersed in the genuine moments of love, joy, and celebration, I find myself in my absolute element, crafting something beautiful, something deeply meaningful. To say this profession is a privilege would be a vast understatement.

This is really, truly my dream job.

what else about me?

Asheville, NC is where my story began and continues to unfold. The fresh mountain air, the Southern charm, the fooood, and the unique energy that pulses through this place—it's most definitely home. Here, I share life's adventures with my wonderful wife Jaimee, our two spirited cats, and our incredibly sweet and endlessly charming boys, Oliver and Rome!

let's tell your story

I guess it shouldn’t surprise me because I’ve always enjoyed creating things. Whether it was writing short stories as a kid, making music in college, or snapping photos on my iPhone before ever picking up a professional camera. Plus, I’m a proud people-pleaser. And I’ve always been a romantic at heart. It all checks out!

Other Fun Factoids:

I love nature. And science. Radiolab is my jam. Total nerd over here. 

And I’m very, very much looking forward to meeting you.

I can’t dance but I do it any way. 

I make dad jokes like it’s my other job. 

I’ve explored 12 different countries and counting. 

I say "Y'all".

I always thought I was a Gryffindor, but my wife insists I’m a Slytherin.

True to being an extroverted-introvert Gemini, I love going to concerts and breweries with friends, but I equally love to lazily cozy up in bed before the sun even sets.

I attended East Carolina University, #purplegold.

I am an Enneagram Type 1: The Perfectionist. No surprises there.

I require caffeine.

I’m half Filipino.

I’m a pescatarian. But I eat gooood.

My music tastes are extremely broad, anything from Zach Bryan to Mac Miller to Kings of Leon to The Beatles to Sylvan Esso and sooo many other artists and genres. Also, my wife is a bit of a Swiftie so, by default, I am too.

Movies/shows that I could watch over and over include: Anything by Christopher Nolan or Adam McKay, The Office (obviously), Game of Thrones, Fixer Upper, Mad Men, and Succession.

But when I’m driving to a wedding, I’m probably rapping aloud to some hip hop or listening to a cheesy motivational podcast.

"Simon was the best decision we made in the wedding planning process."

"He was the ultimate hype man and deserves all the hype in return. While we originally went with him for his stellar work and the diversity of his portfolio, we quickly discovered that Simon is not only a photographer (whose photos are amazing, creative, candid, unique, emotional, empowering) but he is also a certified good vibe setter, mood lifter, stress zapper, and all around personified INSURANCE that you will have a good time on your wedding day. Simon is so chill and easy going while also being exceptionally on top of it and energetic at the same time. "

"Looking through the photos felt like we were reliving our wedding day all over again."

"Not only is Simon an incredible photographer but he is also an incredible person! Throughout the whole process, Simon felt like an old friend — so easy to talk to and he made us feel super comfortable in front of the camera. Simon was so communicative, quick to respond, flexible, and kind. We still cannot get over how beautiful our photos are and could not have asked for a better photographer for our wedding! We love Simon!"

"I truly cannot express how lucky I feel to have found Simon."

“Not only is his photography style and talent phenomenal, he is one of the kindest people ever. He was so calm and helpful the day of the wedding, and getting to hang out with him so much during the day was so great. If you want wedding photos that you will literally be in awe of every time you look at them, Simon is 100% the right choice!”
