David Cruz

#syntheticcolor Nikon F5

Hello there! I’m David Cruz, a film photographer. I'm from the capital city of Oaxaca, Mexico and currently calling East Los Angeles my home. I’d like to thank you for taking interest in my work and will be incredibly happy to welcome you into the Synthetic Color family. It’ll be an honor to be trusted with the responsibility of photographing your wedding. My goal during our time together is to make you feel calm, collected and at home with everything I do, not just in my work but through out the entire planning process and most importantly, your wedding day. It’s why I believe that we must click well together and because you’re here now, we’re probably a perfect match wouldn't you say? I’m more than eager to meet you and help you plan the wedding of your dreams. Browse around, I have plenty of wedding planning tips for your reference and don't forget to follow me on Instagram. I post additional wedding planning tips along with my shenanigans around Southern California and current editorials. If you see we’re a match aesthetically, I would love to hear from you!

I’m a strong supporter of the local small business as well as American made products. Yes, cameras are not manufactured in the U.S., however, these American brands help me produce the beautiful imagery you see in my portfolio. Furthermore, I use recycled paper goods for marketing and packaging materials and have my cameras serviced by Canada Camera, a local repair shop in Montebello, California. 
Camera Bag: Domke

When you book me, you are saying YES on keeping manufacturing jobs in America as well as your dollar, along with contributing to the livelihoods of each person and their families that work in each of these small businesses.
