Hi, I'm Manny Avila.

"Manny" thanks for checking out my site, Here is a little about me!

Myself, the photographer.

Myself, the photographer.

I am a man of many passions. Passions for life, photography, music, and technology are like fire within me. I was born in Arizona, but raised in northern Oregon. I now reside in southern Washington in Pasco. I love Jesus Christ, my wife (she's the best), good times with family & friends, playing piano & violin at Church, laughing attacks (like when you can't even breath), all things technology (yes, nerdy, I know.), Chinese food, and MyFroyo.

I love to spend my time with loved ones, capturing moments through photography, sharing my knowledge with others, and making some music of my own. On the other side of things, I am currently working on a secondary career of Mobile Application Development. Hoping to be able to merge my love for photography and my app development at some point!

Behind the lens, I love capturing those special moments for people—moments that bring back emotions and memories for many years to come. The best moments for me are when clients come back and say, "I am so beautiful" and "you captured all the right moments!" This is the heart of my passion. Because of this, I want to continue on this journey for as long as I can press a shutter button! Back in 2014, I began working at Best Buy and had to learn all about cameras knowing nothing beforehand. That was the spark I needed. I now strive to constantly deliver the unique and emotion-filled imagery my clients (my people!) love.

Furthermore, I am blessed to have my lovely wife, Katie, by my side supporting me on this ride. She often will be at shoots to assist me in providing a quality experience for our clients. Katie is a WSU graduate and is an elementary school teacher. When she's not teaching, she is out on-location assisting me (she's awesome!) 

Lastly, I'm so grateful to have several great friends that help us through second shooting when we need additional support. Together, we do what we can to provide to our people only the very best!
