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

Sometimes in life you meet people and just click. Fortunately for me it happens more often than not hahaha. When I first met Anna and Sandy we hit it off right from the get go, it’s an amazing feeling when you can meet people and feel as though you’ve known them for much longer. We […]

I have known Rajae for over 25 years and when he tied the knot with Melissa I wanted to do something special for them that wasn’t in an envelope or box, so I told them when they had some time we’ll do a Redlands Engagement session they didn’t get to do. The call came, I […]

” When I wake up in the morning And the alarm gives out a warning And I don’t think I’ll ever make it on time By the time I grab my books And I give myself a look I’m at the corner just in time to see the bus fly by It’s alright ‘coz I’m […]

Another super cool day in the Valley for Nina and Juan’s COORIGANVILLE ENGAGEMENT. It’s awesome getting to work with a hair / make up artist for a real session, finally getting them into the spotlight and also getting to show off how great their work really is. We chose COORIGANVILLE for a few reasons but […]

Too stoked to do this REDLANDS ENGAGEMENT. This small hidden gem of a city has pretty much everything I could ever want scenery wise. Old style city – check, orange groves – check, bad ass mountainy areas – check and check. REDLANDS offers so so much scenery wise. We started in DOWNTOWN REDLANDS using some […]

When I do engagement sessions I always want the setting to reflect how AMAZING my couples are. So if you’d like the classy urban look I’ll always suggest Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles and the surrounding areas, if you like a more lush nature setting then look no further than Coorigan Ville in […]

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 […]

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 […]
