ANNA!!!!!!!

Let’s break it down why I was so excited to work with Anna. It was actually Anna that came up with this project. She told me the idea while I was at home during the holidays and I LOVED it. While she focuses on working with other photographers, it was her initial idea that led to me thinking of involving other type of creatives. Anna has always been one to come up with ideas and run with it though. Last year she did a project with [dancers all around the world], which was absolutely incredible and even had a book published.

Anna is a portrait & wedding photographer based out of San Francisco. I met Anna when she flew down to Arizona to capture my best friends wedding. Since then, we have been in contact and always chatting about our photography adventures and becoming good friends. She loves to travel, try foods and likes baked goods. Obviously we got along.

What is funny is that Anna and I have very similar styles. We are very “on the moment” type of photographers. We see a fun wall we like during a shoot, we will run to that wall and get some images. Nothing is too planned when it comes to our shooting styles. I guess it goes with why we love to shoot weddings. We like that documentary feel. While we both have similar shooting styles, we definitely have a different look to our shots. Anna has light, bright and softer look to her photos. While I feel like my look is darker, bold and colorful.

I can keep talking about Anna and how incredible her work is, but [just go and take a look for yourself]. I love her blog, since he has a good mix of personal and work posts.

Of course I had her play with colored powder. She knew it was coming.

We also bought each other baked goods for the shoot. She forgot hers. I ate them. It was awesome. Sorry Anna! But, not really because it was all delicious.

Meet Anna.
