Yair is my name however most people call me Yaya :) Becoming a full-time wedding photographer was one of the greatest things that has happened to me. Having my work published and featured on wedding website platforms is great as well! I do what I love and I get to meet amazing people all the time and have the privilege of spending one of the best days of their lives with them. To be able to document their special moments and capture them forever is something that I’m so grateful to do. Before every wedding I still get excitement and butterflies in my stomach even after 7 years of shooting weddings.
None of this would have happened without Kerry my love, my heart ,my support and the mother of our amazing boys Eytan & Ziv. Knowing that I have them by my side makes me the happiest person on earth. There is not much I can say about myself except that I’m just an ordinary guy with love for my family, photography and traveling. I also practice martial arts for 17 years (second degree black belt in Krav Maga and Shotokan). If you want to know more about me and to see more of my work in person feel free to contact me so we can chat more and maybe we can have a coffee together. In the meantime feel free to read what my previous wedding couples are saying about working with me: click here.
I would love to hear all about your personal story, your wedding plans and really just get to know you to make sure we are the PERFECT fit for one another. (Click here to contact me)
My couples are saying that my pictures could fit right into a magazine. I would say that my style is simple ,timeless and photojournalistic. I love to capture moments while they happen and sometimes help to create the moments that you’ll remember forever. Real expression and great picture makes great moments last forever. The best way to describe my style is by viewing my galleries:
Photography gear is not what makes great photographs however I choose to work with top of the line photography equipment. Click here to see detailed information on my gear.
Based in Los Angeles Orange County and Santa Barbara but happily will shoot your wedding anywhere in the world!! Seriously anywhere ;-)
