I am Raymond Jones, owner and lead photographer of Marc Raymond Photography in Southern California. I specialize in creative portraits for weddings, engagements and portraiture. My recent association with Ceremony Magazine and CeremonyBlog.com as a featured photographer makes it incredible to believe that what began as a hobby over 15 years ago has developed into such a great passion. Through hard work and dedication, I have created a style that allows you to become comfortable in front of the camera while being yourself. My photojournalistic style while candid is very creative and artistic to ensure the images reflect the true essence of the instance as it unfolds.
Photographing a wedding involves creativity, preparing for the unexpected and having a calming factor on the bride and groom during their important day. I specifically work to capture the individual qualities of each couple and the special ambiance of each wedding. No detail is off limits, no love story is too big to tell and I ensure that every couple will not only visually remember their pictures, but relive the sentiment at the time the moment was captured. Couples who share a deep love for each other are able to keep life simple and their connection strong. This is the reason why I recently added the phrase "Live Simply, Love Deeply" to my logo.
"Fun..outgoing..intuitive to our needs.." are a few words used by clients to describe my style and photography sessions. I am genuinely dedicated to providing portraits that will leave you reliving the moment for years to come. Aaron Siskind said it perfectly with; "Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever... it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything." I will meet your expectations by capturing what is at the heart of the moment with images that will tell your story for generations to come.
