Hello, I’m Scott. 

In 2008, I decided that photographing headshots wasn’t challenging enough. So I started down the path of learning how the wedding photography process worked. I signed up for a wedding workshop at Julia Dean Photo Workshops, taught by Yvette Roman on Venice Beach.

Fast forward to today, and in 2008, I decided to step up my photography skills and explore wedding photography. I enrolled in a wedding photography workshop at Julia Dean Photo Workshops, taught by Yvette Roman on Venice Beach. Yvette is a highly imaginative and professional wedding photographer who taught us how to create a smooth wedding day for the bride and groom. Even though none of us had any real experience photographing weddings, Yvette treated us as future professional wedding photographers.

From the workshop, I learned how to organize a great timeline, what brides are looking for, and what questions to ask brides that they might not have considered. I applied these principles to my first real wedding, which I booked in 2010, based on my former headshot portfolio and what I learned from the Yvette Roman workshop. I created a great timeline that catered to the bride and groom's needs and knew what they wanted creatively from me.

On the wedding day, a hospital visit ran over time, causing the bride and I to make changes to the timeline. Despite having less than 20 minutes to photograph over 40 people in the bridal party, I calmly went through the list, placed, posed, and got everyone in an organic state. Late in the event, when I was receiving praise, I realized that I could never have performed so creatively that day without the knowledge I learned from Yvette’s workshop.

Today, 15 years later, I still use the principles I learned in Yvette's workshop as the first steps in planning the wedding day. 

I would love to hear about your event and how I can make it memorable.

What They Say!

• Scott was absolutely amazing! He joined us at the hotel while we got ready and got a lot of great candidates during the reception. We are so happy that we found Magenta Wedding Photography!

• What a fun day with the most beautiful memories captured because of Scott Klarkowski. He was wonderful to work with before, during, and after our wedding day! We have gotten so many compliments on how fun his little "extras" were! What are these extras I speak of? You will have to meet with him to find out, but oh, what fun they were! Scott, thank you for a wonderful day and all of the extra time and energy you put into making it all perfect. Love, Mr. and Mrs. Brus October 20th, 2018!

• I love my Photos! The absolute best!! More than willing to work with our schedule. Puts in the extra time to be early and get absolutely every shot you could want! Great at finding nice locations and excellent poses. The pictures couldn’t have been better!! We have already highly recommended Magenta Wedding Photography to our friends who will be using him, and we couldn’t recommend him more highly!!

• Choosing Magenta Wedding Photography to photograph our wedding was hands down the best decision my husband and I made in our planning process. Scott was attentive from the very first email through creating our wedding day photography timeline, delivering our gorgeous photos, and designing our beautiful wedding album. No detail was overlooked. We loved our photographer. He was so creative and fun. We had a blast at our engagement session, and our family absolutely loved him on our wedding day. I can't say enough about Magenta Wedding Photography. Scott made our day stress-free and fun. I recommend Scott to everyone. He’s the best!

• The best photographer I have ever had the pleasure of knowing! I was very pleased with the results! Great eye! Great guy!!!

We had an amazing experience with Scott. Scott was so personable and really cared about us and capturing our wedding day. He spent *a lot* of time getting to know us and then learning our personalities and styles in order to match his photography to us. His photos are of excellent quality, and his personality and flexibility made us glad that we chose him as our wedding photographer! You won't be sorry if you go with Scott. We would recommend him to anyone.

• Scott was amazing from engagement photos to the wedding day. I could not have asked for a better photographer! Highly recommend!
