It has been quite the summer. One full of so many adventures and so many incredible weddings. Of course you wouldn’t know any of this because I have been a bad photographer and haven’t blogged anything in…. a long time. But if there was one wedding to start it up again with, it would have […]

“I’ve been a fan for a long time and I would love it if you could photograph my small wedding”. Show me a wedding photographer that doesn’t like messages like that, and I will personally smack them. In a little park and corner of Pasadena, Jonathan and Julian proclaimed their love in front of their […]

I like suspenders. Its been my thing for a bit now. My fashion statement if you will. If you follow me on {INSTAGRAM} you’ve probably noticed that I’ve been rocking some amazing leather suspenders for the last couple of months. Those suspenders are from Daniel over at {SHEEHAN & COMPANY}. Sheehan & Company is a contemporary […]

It’s crazy to think that I’ve spent a total of six weeks traveling India. It’s also crazy to think that I still haven’t seen the Taj Mahal even though I was there for so long. Obviously one of these days Im going to head back because I need to see that building. In the process […]

I wrote the story below a few days ago intending to blog it this week. This morning Chris informed me that Norma passed away in peace surrounded by the people that love her. It was truly an honor to have met her and captured her smile before she passed. All my love to Chris today. […]

Hey Los Angeles,  Your drag scene is first class. It is no surprise though. Los Angeles has some of the best drag queens in the entire world.  Speaking of first class. Let me introduce you to Lola. Lola Rose.  Miss Lola Rose is a brilliant drag queen. An world class makeup artist {Seriously you should […]

a mile away  that is how far you can be and still see Shelly’s smile.  it’s the most amazing ray of sunshine  we needed a little something more serious for her shoot and portfolio  but trust me, that smile can knock down buildings  (also, the cigarettes were only used for the effect. calm down) 

I love when I can say that I made a good friend during a shoot.  I’ve met a lot of people during my time as a photographer and I can honestly say a lot of them have became really close friends. Parker is one of those people.  We clicked due to our wanderlust. We love […]
