You know those sessions? Those incredible engagement sessions? Those sessions where you go to the location and take pictures and yell “SHUT THE FUCK UP” after each shot? This was one of those sessions. Like a perfectly baked cake with the right amount of icing. This session was just delicious. Wow…Obviously I’m incredibly hungry while […]

I am behind. Like Super Duper behind on blogging. But that is Ok. Why? I am behind because of so much travel and so many shoots! And that is a wonderful thing?  Another wonderful thing? Going to my favorite city in the world and shooting some love.  Give me someone that tells me Seattle isn’t […]

I don’t know where to start. How does one write a blog post for their little sister.  I guess I can start by saying that they did this as a favor to me. Cynthia and Keith already have an incredible photographer to capture their special day (I will be part of the wedding), so they […]

The first time I met Aimee, she invited me to come into her sorority to eat Waffles during our undergrad years. The first time I met Mike he bought me tacos. Waffles and Tacos are like two of my favorite things in the entire world.  Basically these two are magic.  I’ve known Aimee for a […]

Sometimes it astounds me how things work out.  Becky sent me an email saying that she had asked on her Facebook if anyone knew any wedding photographers. We had ONE friend in common, and she recommended me. A meet-up in Los Angeles and some laughs later, bam we were besties.  Becky and Bennet met while […]

That Seattle diffused light. Please give that to me every day please.  If I could do every engagement shoot in Seattle. I would If I could photograph friends in love all the time. I would. Leo and Jess are just the best. I’ve known Leo since my college days in Seattle (my liver hurt just typing […]

“I want to do the engagement in our hometown. It just has so much meaning to me.”  Marissa and I grew up in the same little border town in Arizona. The reason so many of us have been able to leave that town an conquer the world is because of our strong roots there.  So […]

RJ & Will.  These two share their lives. Literally.  They share their daily life with hundreds of thousands of viewers every single day. From the awesome days, to the bad days, to the boring days, fun days, puppy struggles, ALL OF IT. It floors me that people are able to do this. To wake up […]

I don’t even know where to start. Sometimes you have a vision. You have a goal. You have a photo in your mind. But to be honest, most of the time I don’t. I go with the flow. I capture the moment. Sure you can do set ups, have a vision board, and have a plan, […]

I’m going to start and say that while this is an engagement shoot of Kati and Steven, the real star was their pup Mars. I spent the entire afternoon riding in the back with Mars and we obviously became the best of friends. Ok fine, I won’t spend the entire post talking about their doggy. […]
