With a unique aesthetic that often integrates lively time-lapse photography and vintage film stock into his wedding narratives, Reuben Hernandez is a storyteller who began making films at an early age.
Reuben developed his photographic abilities during a Pepperdine University study-abroad program in Florence, Italy. This set the tone for a lifetime of photojournalistic explorations that has taken him to all 7 continents and over 40 countries throughout the world, with extended stays in Spain, Argentina, Japan, France, Australia, Germany, Arctic Norway, and Antarctica.
In addition to covering events for The Day, Reuben has been heralded for his work in the film world, notably as one of the “20 Emerging Artists to Watch in Film and Video” by PDN and Rangefinder Magazine. Reuben’s work has been featured on the Discovery Channel, in The New York Times, and his films have premiered in various film festivals around the world.
When he isn’t exploring the world with his camera and his wife, the writer/learning designer/improv comedian Lisa Pertoso, Reuben loves to bboy and practice parkour.
“I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life’s a bitch. You’ve got to go out and kick ass.”
