Newborn baby Aidan {jcp Family Portraits}

Well here it is- I was going to shoot fireworks for my 4th of July Blog but I was in Santa Monica for the 4th and they decided to cancel them. I was a little bummed. It was the first time I had ever celebrated the 4th minus the fireworks but I quickly recovered. You’ll have to too. I have no fireworks for you this monday morning, instead I have baby! You see, for our daytime 4th activities we all Read More

Wedding at Calamigos Equestrian

Recently I shot a wedding with one of my favorite photographers- Erik Hyler of EHGPhoto. I love Eric, love shooting with him. He’s extremely talented, we work well together and he’s always ready to play. This last wedding was no exception. Our couple- April and Ken. They’re gorgeous, fun, flexible (their dancers), crazy about each other, oh and they’re gorgeous. They have dated and danced their way through many years together, as well as many countries. Eric and I adored Read More

Wedding in Malibu California

Becca and Raymond have shared a fairy-tale romance. They met within the theater and were engaged within the theater. Raymond proposed to Becca during their run of “A Midsummer Nights Dream,” where they played the parts of the Fairy King and Queen- Oberon and Titania. So it just made sense to have their wedding reflect a similar theme. Their wedding came complete with a lush forest, horses, peasants, fairies and wood nymphs. It was an enchanting day, to say the Read More

Engagement Session at Union Station

Today, Zen Todd Photography and I headed to downtown LA for an exciting engagement shoot. Downtown has always been one of my favorite locations to shoot. Its weathered streets and aged architecture always offer a wide variety of colorful backdrops. It always inspires and always looks great on film (or CMOS sensor). Union Station, one of Downtown’s many ancient archetypes, was built in 1939 and is considered to be “The last of America’s great rail stations.” It’s also an excellent Read More

Engagement Session at The Santa Monica Pier

  For this couple, good things happen in two’s. Their love affair began within the dramatic walls of a fabulous little theater known as “The Knightsbridge.” Becca saw Raymond in a play there and instantly they became friends. They were friends for two years before they became lovers and they were lovers for two years before he proposed. In August of 2007, they stood side by side, on stage, in a Shakespearean production called “Midsummer Nights Dream.” She played Titania Read More

Bits of New Orleans and Hawaii

So it’s been awhile since returning to the land of blogging and for good reason of course- I’ve been busy! However as this year comes to a close and I begin to set forth new goals for the upcoming year, I can’t help but reminisce over all of the gems that I have visited from this past year- Santa Ynez, Colorado, Mexico, New Orleans, Hawaii, and my final excursion- Turkey. Actually as I write this blog I am currently enjoying Read More

Wedding Photographer in New Orleans, Louisiana

Wendy and Andre met in college, have been friends for thirteen years, dated for seven and have loved over lifetimes. They are that special “one in a million” couple that you can’t help but watch across an empty park, or hear whispering from a distant window, see silhouetted against a setting sun, or hear sobbing their goodbyes from within a local airport. Their love is so rich, so deep and I have always looked up to them within my own Read More
