Craig Peterman is a visual storyteller offering professional photography and videography for Southern CA weddings. Documenting moments is Craig's true passion: "I have had many careers throughout my life, but truly, nothing has ever felt right, or complete, or true, until I held a camera in my hands. Instantly, I knew that my real passion had been awakened with the whirring click of a shutter." He believes pictures are worth a thousand words, and that capturing still images and film is a way to not only tell your love story, but also make each moment last a lifetime.

I draw inspiration from everywhere, but I am especially drawn to colleagues that push the boundaries of creativity and what fresh ideas we can use to move the industry forward into the future!

My favorite moment at weddings is always the first dance! Its hard to beat a first dance between 2 people completely in love and in the moment!
What makes a wedding memorable for you?
Everything makes it memorable, but especially rowdy receptions are always a ton of fun! Some of my best shots are at the reception when people can finally let loose!
What have weddings taught you?
Weddings have taught me to enjoy the moment and appreciate life in a deeper way. It's incredible to travel the world and witness different cultures, meet different people, and watch once in a lifetime events unfold. It teaches a lot about what truly matters in life!

What's your favorite quote?
"When nothing seems to help, I go and look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not that blow that did it, but all that had gone before." —Jacob Riis
What's your favorite marriage advice?
Don't fall asleep angry at each other!
I am a big basketball fan; anything involving that and you have my attention!
If you weren't in your current profession, what would you do instead?
I would probably be in the fitness industry in some capacity.
