The story of a photographer

Meet Sandor Menyhay.

"Hey there! I am a 28-year-old photographer who loves spending time in coffee shops. I was born and raised in Madera, CA. I graduated from California State University Fresno with a Bachelors of Science in Biological Sciences. I am currently living in Fresno enjoying all that it has to offer. Photography is my passion and you can typically find me hiking and exploring new trails with my camera by my side. My generous and kind nature allows me to see the beauty in everything, which shines through in my work. I am extremely lucky to be able to do what I love for a living and I look forward to exploring more of the world with my camera.

Growing up, my father always used to capture every special moment on his handheld Panasonic camcorder. When he was unable to, my brother and I took his place in trying to capture our family's special moments.

My love for photography began when I was in college. I started taking pictures of everyday moments with my family and friends, and I quickly realized that photography could be so much more than just a hobby. It could be a way to capture the love and joy of a couple on their wedding day or to tell the story of a family through generations of portraits. "

"I started off as an amateur photographer, taking pictures as a hobby during school. My passion grew when I got my first DSLR; it allowed me to capture some of my favorite memories in a way that I could relive them over and over again. After graduating from college, I decided to pursue photography as my career. I started out with smaller family photography and surprise engagement gigs and gradually worked my way up to bigger jobs like weddings and elopements.

Eventually, I began to shoot all kinds of portraits, engagements, families, and headshots. And with each picture I took, I fell more in love with the art of photography. Today, photography is my passion and my life's work. I cherish each and every opportunity I have to capture the love and joy of my clients' most cherished moments."

"I love being a photographer because it allows me to capture love stories and turn them into something tangible that can be looked back on and cherished for a lifetime. I love being able to tell a story through my images; it's like sharing a part of my soul with the world. I love the feeling of anticipation when I'm about to take a picture, and the satisfaction that comes with knowing that I've captured a moment perfectly. I love the way weddings make me feel; they're like one big love story unfolding before my eyes, and I'm just there to document it. Photography is my passion, and I can't imagine doing anything else with my life.

There's something so special and romantic about elopement photography. It's the story of two people in love, choosing to follow their hearts and elope instead of having a traditional wedding. Eloping can be a very intimate and personal experience, and it's wonderful to be able to capture that in photos. Elopement photography is all about capturing the emotions of the day, from the excitement and anticipation of getting ready to say your vows, to the joy and happiness of being married. It's a truly beautiful way to capture a love story."

"I love capturing love stories. I love being able to document the happiest day of a couple's life and knowing that their memories will be preserved forever. I love the challenge of shooting in different locations and telling a unique story through my photos. I love the look on a bride's face when she sees her wedding photos for the first time. And I love knowing that I was able to give her and her husband the gift of reliving their wedding day over and over again.

I also love the variety of work I get to do on a daily basis as an elopement and wedding photographer. Each couple is so unique, each wedding is different from the next. It's exciting when I get to meet new people, hear their love stories, and document those special moments for them to remember forever. When I'm not busy shooting or editing photos, you can find me exploring nature with my camera by my side or hanging out at a cafe catching up on work!"

All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us." – Gandalf the Grey
