Mark & Lauren

I am very sensitive to the fact that for every wedding photographer you see at a wedding, there’s at least one or two good friends or family that didn’t get invited. Sure, some have the budget to go as big as they want, but most of my clients make a pretty big sacrifice to have…

Julie & Ryan

I’m still thinking about this wedding. Julie and Ryan are one of those couples who exude togetherness. To anyone around, its quite obvious that they’re meant for each other. It’s hard to explain, but they just fit. It’s romantic and sappy perhaps, but I believe there is true love and I’ll go on the record…

Will and Jenn

These two people live far away from me, but somehow distance doesn’t separate us. I’m from Georgia originally. Will and I were in our first band together. We went to high school together. So when I heard that Will and Jenn got engaged I was beside myself with happiness. Will was one of my groomsmen…

Meant to Be – Jonathan & Charity’s Wedding

Jonathan and Charity are some of our closest and dearest friends, so you can imagine how elated we were when we found out they were getting married. These two are meant for each other. It’s not every day some of your best friends get married in a mind-blowing building built in 1929 in Santa Barbara,…

Jupiter over Los Angeles (self-portrait)

I was waiting for my wife Heather to get home from Dallas when I decided to run up to Griffith Observatory to take a few shots.  As usual, the view was great, but not so usual, the view was very clear. Isn’t the universe awesome? Jupiter has been good to me this year. Canon 7D…

My 8,000 mph drive to Vegas, etc.

Its all about video today: 1. I assembled a timelapse of my drive to Rollercon 2010 in Las Vegas this year and you should watch it. Every year, my wife’s band the Pin Ups, plays a show at the Double Down in Sin City, known for its signature drink, Ass Juice. The show kicks off…

Jamie & David

Have you ever met a couple with a smiling, quiet confidence, as if they know some secret you don’t? Jamie & David have that mysterious and cool connection. We spent an afternoon with them taking photos and exploring Apollo Park. We give a free engagement session with every wedding that we book. It allows us…

North Lake and South Lake

I decided to process some shots from last fall.  North and South Lake near Bishop, Ca. These are HDRs of about 7 shots then contrast adjusted and then converted to black and white. I love the black & white custom filter function in Photoshop; careful, you can mess around for hours.

Jennifer & Jason

You know, once in a while, something comes along that is just perfect. Sometimes, its a mate.  Not only are these two perfect for each other, but they were also the perfect client. Heather and I are new to weddings and could not have found a more interesting couple to shoot for our first big…

San Francisco on Valentine’s Day

For a slide show of these images, click here. Every time I go to San Francisco, I leave feeling like I have unfinished business. It’s the kind of place you couldn’t truly experience in one lifetime. Like many other cities, it hustles and bustles and has its pitfalls, but there is a charm to this…

The Salton Sea and Joshua Tree National Park

If you like to see a slideshow of these images, please click here. In southern California, we don’t have to stop doing outdoor stuff just because of winter. While it’s pretty cold in the high desert where I live, all it takes is a short drive to reach a climate more to suitable to adventure….

My Top Ten Shots of 2009

As a response to Jim M. Goldstein’s challenge, I’ve assembled what I believe are my 10 best images of 2009. Things definitely took a turn with the purchase of my first new SLR in years. Yeah, yeah, I know you’re all sick of hearing about it, so plug your ears.  An early trip in the…
