For the past seven years, I've had the privilege of documenting couples love stories and turning fleeting moments into timeless memories. Planning a wedding can be both exciting and overwhelming, and one of the biggest decisions couples face is choosing the right photographer to capture their special day. I understand the unique challenges and concerns couples may encounter during the wedding planning process, and I'm here to help alleviate those worries and provide solutions tailored to each couple's needs.

I'm Armando, a wedding photographer & filmmaker

based in the breathtaking Lake Tahoe and Reno area.

Providing a beautifully curated collection that can be shared with family and friends for generations. Unlike digital files, a physical album offers a personal and intimate way to experience your wedding story.

Ashley & Sean

AJ photography went above and beyond our expectations for both photography and videography! Armando is a one of a kind photographer who is passionate and dedicated to his art and we couldn’t recommend him more. Not only is he good at what he does, he’s also very kind, and wonderful with communication. If you tell him something is important, he will make sure it gets done, and is done to perfection. We are so grateful to have such wonderful and beautiful memories of our wedding day for years and years!

"...went above and beyond our expectations."

Kristen Burn

On the wedding day, Armando not only continued his amazing photo work but also amazed us with his videography skills. Handling both roles, he captured the day’s emotions, the laughs, tears, and dances, in a way that felt both comprehensive and intimate. We received around 1,200 stunning photos and a highlight video that brought everyone to tears. Additionally, his willingness to provide raw footage of our ceremony and speeches was a gift beyond price, allowing us to relive those heartfelt moments.

"Any couple would be lucky to have him."

Ashley Zeme

He caught a lot of sweet little moments of our guests. After sharing the gallery with some of our family and friends, many of them commented “ I can’t believe your photographer caught this moment of my sons, dad, mom, etc”. We are completely able to re-live our day with his photos. I don’t even understand how he was able to do it, but he also put together an 11 minute highlight video capturing our vows, big moments and many more little moments throughout the day! I was bawling while watching it! 

"He is an amazing and talented photography."

Rachel Page

I am SPEECHLESS! The work they did brought us to tears and the impact they had on our day will not be forgotten. His work is the exact vision I had. Armando is very reliable. He answers emails quickly and arrived to our wedding early. He’s is very professional and adaptable. Armando and Eli worked really well with our other vendors. It was so clear how passionate they are about their work and love for capturing special moments. Armando captured all the moments we asked for and so much MORE!

"One of the best decisions you can make."
