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

Taking it back to one of my favorite locations for Rebekah and David’s PASADENA CITY HALL ENGAGEMENT.  We wanted to do a nice mix of nature and classic and the great thing about Pasadena is that it’s very easy to pull that off. So we started off at Arlington Gardens a few miles south of […]

” and in this moment, I swear, we are infinite “ ~ POBAWF ~ I have this love / hate relationship with being out this far north in LA County. On one hand we have barely any traffic and some kick ass spots to shoot sessions at that not a lot of others know about […]

” Some infinities are simply bigger than other infinities “ ~ TFINOS It’s a chilly morning out here in SoCal today so I’m sitting next to the window watching the steam rise from my coffee cup and thinking about Myra and Ricardo’s rad COORRIGANVILLE ENGAGEMENT session. I get so caught up in work sometimes that […]

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 […]
