Chris
Owner/Photographer/Twilight

I started my career in So Cal as a court records copier  and served process for the car insurance industry. For that, I would drive 60,000 miles/year for four years! Then, I moved to Arizona where I waited tables in various up-scale restaurants and resorts. As time moved on, I worked in several retail businesses as a manager and district manager.(Broadway Southwest, Dillards, Macy’s, Track ‘N Trail, Eddie Bauer, Express Clothing)
Finally, when I turned 40, I got into real estate photography. At that point in my life, the only camera I had ever held was a drug store cheapie. After a few years of honing my craft at a different company, I decided to start my own business in 2012. The rest, they say, is history!
In my spare time, I like to read, travel, gym workouts, living a healthy life and collect music CDs (I have over 7,500 and counting!). I love what I do and I am so proud of my team!

Alberto
Director of Operations

In addition to position of COO, I oversee our range of services, manage our team and the effectiveness of Beyond RE Marketing. I have demonstrated history of management success that has spanned the healthcare, business operations, and non-profit sectors.

I joined our team during the summer of 2020. Originally from Orange County, I had a brief stint living in San Francisco before moving to Santa Monica, where I currently live.

I am very happily married and have two puppies!

Joseph
Photographer/Video/Twilight

I’m a shy, quiet, and friendly guy. Some of my favorite foods are eggs, cheesy corn and acai bowls. I enjoy watching and playing basketball and tennis. I love spending time with my family, friends and girlfriend. When I have some free time, I try to workout, run, watch movies, and play video games. Fun fact: I’ve been told many times that my laugh sounds like a monkey.
I love taking pictures of almost anything and everything. I think my love for photography started when I took a photography class in my senior year of high school. From that point, photography became my passion. It seemed like everything I observed was from the perspective of a camera lens. Everyday life and wherever I go, I’m always taking note of lighting, shadows, colors, details and how I would compose and frame a shot. Besides capturing moments, I love photography because it is a form of expression.

You might consider me as a jack of all trades, who’s quietly mastering them all.

Upon achieving my bachelor’s degree in Radio, Television and Film Production from San Jose State University, my goal was to provide creative, outside-the-box-style marketing material for companies, products, and people.

My drive eventually led me to the world of real estate and Beyond RE Marketing, where my expertise behind the camera grew exponentially.

When I’m not creating behind the camera or editing my next project, you can find me at the gym, planning a trip to a new country, or just simply surfing through Netflix!

 

Alicia
Photographer

Cameras, lenses, and lighting were part of life around my household. My father was an industrial photographer for Stanford Research Institute and my mom was the family historian. My mom loved to video my family with her 8mm camera, shoot slides, play around with infrared and black & white film while her children were her subjects. My dad on the other hand, when at home, tried to regularly corral four kids for family portraits and realized how he appreciated photographing non-moving objects more.

My passion for photography started in junior high when I took a photography class that opened my creative eyes to what my parents had seen all along. I have been photographing lifestyle and people for years, but in 2012, I started shooting remodeled houses. That was a segue way into real estate and commercial photography and I haven’t looked back since.

 

David
Photographer/Matterport/Drone

I am a passionate photo/videographer and have been flying and building drones since I was 10 years-old. Having a keen eye and utilizing an HDR Canon 5d IV camera, 4k Drone, and industry-standard Matterport Virtual technology, I capture the “magazine” shots our clients want and deserve from a single appointment.

Most of my free-time is spent with my wife and children. I am an avid 49ers fan and adrenaline junkie who enjoys cruising back roads on my motorcycle, or on a track in my race car that I have been designing since the year 2000.

 

Noel
Photographer/Video/Drone

I love to be outdoors and in nature. When I’m not at home, I’m either on the trails hiking, backpacking, or snowboarding (in the winter). I am also a huge music fan—I mostly listen to Indie—and I can play both the guitar and drums. Out of high school, I joined the Army Reserves. After that, I found my love for photography.
I shoot real estate on weekdays, while I am a storyteller/filmmaker on the weekends—I shoot a lot of weddings. My eventual goal in my creative career is to direct a full-feature documentary film. I have a beautiful wife, Mylene, who shoots weddings with me as a photographer.

Ivan
Photographer/Drone

My beginning in the creative field started when I was four years old.

I picked up my dad’s camcorder, and filmed whatever I could to storytell. In my youth my curiosity led me getting into stop motion, 3D animation, photography, and filming.

I explored whatever I could use to visually express my creativity

Most of my filming and photography experience before joining BREM was from capturing all types of performance cars, as that is my primary hobby.

In my free time I like to learn new things, hang out with friends, go on drives, fly my drone, and of course film cars.

When I photograph or film a property, my goal in mind is to tell it’s story to the best of my abilities.
 

Lauren
Matterport

Lauren is our dedicated Matterport service provider as well as a photographer. She has years of experience shooting both residential and commercial properties and is an expert at capturing the perfect angle of any structure in great detail. Equipped with a premium Matterport 3D machine, her main goal is to elevate her clients’ listings by creating immersive experiences that reach a wide audience.

Lauren spends her free time with her husband and two young boys. Outnumbered 3 to 1, her weekends consist of Nerf gun wars, assembling LEGOs, building forts, and anything related to cars. She wouldn’t have it any other way.

Emily
Photos/Video/Drone/3D/Twilight

Before moving to CA in the fall of 2021, Emily was an agent in Vermont & New Hampshire. Her craving for creative expression and long time passion for photography led her to explore real estate photography during that time, first for her own listings and eventually for fellow agents. That career offered a unique advantage in the transition to full time real estate photography since she has the eye of an agent, consumer, and photographer.

As a certified drone pilot she enjoys capturing diverse landscapes, giving new perspectives and providing visual delicacies of nature, architecture, and people.

Emily strives to embrace and exercise a life of balance. This is often through making jewelry, writing poetry, dancing, sweating in hot Pilates/yoga and listening to, attending, producing, and obsessing over reggae music.
