These images are as much the people in them as they are me. 

Amanda and Lob’s wedding was really special. Firstly this HOBBS GROVE WEDDING is awesome! For those that don’t know they mainly do a Halloween get up that spans the property, and they do a kick ass job of that in itself. They renovated the space in off season to accommodate other events and did an […]

The Genesis that is Laguna. Growing up in Orange County ( somewhat ) I never really had a chance to explore or get acquainted with that area or even for the most part it’s surrounding areas. Doing odd jobs in Mission Viejo up to San Juan Cap kept me rather busy to enjoy the story […]

Engagement sessions are key to getting to know your photographer. I’ve seen so many examples of Brides telling me they didn’t know or have any type of connection to their hired “tog”. It’s a shame really because of the opportunity lost to create and KYC ( Know Your Client ). It gives my bride and […]

Today I wanted to open up some conversation about the giant ego’s running around in our industry. This is mainly for other professionals in the wedding industry but to have brides and grooms garner a deeper understanding of this poison is something I highly value also. I want to talk about the chase for fame, […]

Super stoked today to bring you this CORRIGANVILLE ENGAGEMENT with Sara and Kevin! They came down all the way from my favorite state of Washington to rock this session with me before the wedding ( which I might add will be incredible out at WALNUT GROVE. ) Corriganville is this cool little spot on the […]

Forever in love with a location could be one way to describe how I feel about PASADENA CITY HALL. For so many reasons too. What I find absolutely amazing about shooting PASADENA CITY HALL ENGAGEMENT sessions is that you don’t even need to go inside to get some really rad images. I’ve easily been here […]

Everyone knows out this way how awesome PASADENA CITY HALL is when it comes to rocking an engagement session. For those that don’t well…it is! For this PASADENA CITY HALL ENGAGEMENT we went about things a little more different than usual. Normally I like to start out front and kind of work my way through […]

There is so much I can say about Jessi & Kar’s HIGUERA RANCH WEDDING that I’m not too sure where to start. Before I get into the awesomeness that is those two let me start off by talking about HIGUERA RANCH. I have worked at a ton of venues over the years, each one with […]

  What I’m really thinking is ” DAMN I have to get back to SMOKY HALLOW! ” Hahaha! This little hidden gem of a venue is BY FAR one of the coolest I’ve seen in South Los Angeles. It has character in spades with rustic dark / moody tie ins, chalk board walls and to […]

  Oh man Stephanie and Andrews HANFORD COURTE SUTTER CREEK WEDDING was AWESOME! SUTTER CREEK is right in the heart of Gold Country and was founded in the 19th century ( hows that for some history! ). Surrounded by wine regions, old gold mines and the cutest damn town I had ever set foot in. […]
