the journey, not the arrival, matters
… so capture the moments …
Mario Vargas, photographer
Photographer Mario Vargas and family
It is the good, the moments of joy, happiness, awe, thrill, love, and wonder that get us through the day. That makes me realize that there is something more, that there is beauty in the world. Photography has allowed me to capture these beautiful moments, it memorializes them, and reminds me of the joy, and the beauty that exists in this world.

“Medic Music Photography helped my fiancé capture the best possible photos of our proposal! My fiancé wanted it all to be a surprise, so Mario tagged along and stayed very inconspicuous during the entire dinner cruise until we went outside to take some selfies on the back deck of the boat. When he finally got down on one knee, it was a total surprise, and Mario was there to capture the perfect moment – my shocked expression, my fiancé’s huge smile, and the most gorgeous sunset behind the Golden Gate Bridge in the background. On top of it all, the turn around time for the photos was so fast! I couldn’t have asked for a better experience, and we would 1000% recommend.”

“Mario has an amazing eye and is so easy to work with. Don’t pass up the chance to work with him!
There just aren’t enough words to possibly describe how amazing each and every photo that Mario snaps. He has a magical way of finding the perfect angle, lighting and of course expressions. Loved how all his photos seemed natural looking with real lighting and the images were not edited or photoshopped looking. It you like the real natural look he does AMAZING work!”
