Tony Florez Wedding Photography Interview Part 1 Interviewer: “Tony, talk to me about your background and your experience.” Tony: I actually started in seventh grade when I was in Pennsylvania. When I was a little older I found a photographer who was looking for someone to work with, to train. And I had very basic knowledge because I come from a school yearbook situation, but he hired me and took me under his wing and taught me a lot of things. Eventually, he had me doing weddings, and he was involved with some fashion photography as well. I kind of dabbled a little bit with everything back then in the Midwest in my teen years. And then I moved back to California and landed in Yorba Linda. I met several photographers there and got involved with what they called the PPOC, the Professional Photographers of Orange County.

Tony Florez Wedding Photography Interview Part 2 Interviewer: “Tony, talk to me about your background and your experience.” I really had a yearning for wanting to do fashion because as my photography style evolved, starting at an early age, I learned a lot of technical aspects of photography. I’ve done traditional photography for many years but as I grew and wanted to do more fashion, I felt like I had so much more potential in style. Being able to add a fashion perspective to my pictures and differentiate myself from other photographers was not by the pretty backgrounds of the beach, it was by the style of my photography.
