Welcome to YJM Photography! I’m Yves Mozelsio, the founder and master photographer of YJM Photography.
Last year, my studio celebrated 25 years photographing weddings and other special events at some of the Bay Area's leading hotels and reception sites. When I say celebrated, I’m not referring only to my work, but to all the couples and families that I’ve captured through my lens over the years.
The wedding day is one of the most important events in a couple’s life. It’s my love and passion for witnessing this celebration, and I feel very fortunate that for the last two decades that I’ve been able to document their day in photographs for them and their families to cherish.
Through my work, over the years I’ve made many wonderful friends. I’ve also been fortunate to photograph their growing families as well.
I have won numerous awards for my photographic work, exhibited nationally and have had my images published both in magazines and books.
YJM Photography is a preferred photographer on numerous venues. Although I primarily work in the San Francisco Bay Area and surrounding locations, I will travel outside of California.
I bring talented and hardworking assistants who work photographing events along side me. They also help with the multiple lighting setups, and also help in keeping my focus on capturing the images, rather then missing them.
My goal is to catch as many of those special moments as possible, often without the couple aware them they’re being photoraphed.
My specialty style is photojournalistic, but I’m also trained in a more traditional style of photography if that’s preferred.
Weddings & Engagements:
Capturing the moments I have an unobtrusive style that captures the spontaneous moments at your wedding, while documenting all the important events of the day. I personally oversee every aspect of the Studio. This includes photographing every event, editing of all the images and album design.
My team and I take capture approximately 2000-3000 images per event. Many hours are spent touching and reviewing each and every image to assure that your final album is unique and expresses who you are. The end product is a custom wedding album illustrating all the memorable, unique, precious, romantic and even silly and fun moments of the day.
Our albums typically begin from the engagement to the bride preparing for her special day, to staying until your last dance.
Ultimately it is you and your guests who create the memories, but my team and I promise to memorialize them in photos that you, your family and friends will treasure for a lifetime.
And when baby makes three, I would love to capture this amazing life event for you as well.
Rites of Passages & Family Events.
I have equal experience in photographing cultural, ethnic, religious rites of passages and other family events such as, pregnancies, births, baptismal, Bar/Bat Mitzvah's, anniversaries, graduations, and other special events.
Enjoy our photo galleries where you will see the breadth of different types of events I’ve covered over the years.
Who is Yves?
I’m originally from Brussels, Belguim (hence the name Yves). Was raised in Fullerton, California.
I have lived in Chicago, and for the last 14 years have resided in Northern California.
When I’m not photographing portraits and events, I’m spending time with my family, and pets.
I’m a cyclist and enjoy weekly bicycle rides throughout the Bay Area. I am a fine painter, specializing in portraits. I enjoy traveling, good food, good friends, family time, and reading. I also have to mention that my camera is attached to my hip most wherever I go!
I invite you to schedule a no obligation consultation with me in my studio where I live and work. I’m located in the Oakland Hills of Alameda County. In addition to regular business hours, I am also available evening and weekend by appointment only.
Please feel free to contact me at 925-786-7823 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to meeting you and hearing about your upcoming event.
Photography of class, grace and style
