First things first, I’m so excited you are here and that my work has connected us! Thank you for taking the time to see what I’m all about and for considering me to be a part of your beautiful life adventure.
I live in the San Francisco Bay Area with my wife Pamela. When we started Sergio Alcala Photo, as you can imagine, it was a huge life change for us. At the time, I worked as a civil engineer and I loved putting together complex, detailed and exact plans and drawings. While I enjoyed my career, I craved creativity and the ability to dream up something completely new that didn’t exist before. I loved exploring the bay area and traveling with Pamela while capturing our adventures with my camera. It wasn’t long before I was obsessed with learning about light, composition, and camera settings. Maybe it’s the former engineer in me, but I wanted to learn all the rules—so I could then break them when it made sense—to create the most beautiful compositions. Overall, my style can be best described as romantic and moody.
When I am not out and about shooting the raddest couples in the world, you can find me hiking, listening to records (Nirvana, The Beatles, Coldplay), watching The Office (while editing), exploring new places and enjoying an ice-cold beer.
