Sometimes you don’t have words. Christine and Zach got that perfect fall light. im so into the fall light and couples who ooze love So this time, I’m going to let the pictures do the talking. Because you can’t describe the happiness they radiate in these.

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 […]

Oh London. You beautiful city you. “This place is just really special to me” I usually let couples pick the locations they want for the engagement sessions and once they do, that is the line I usually hear on why. I’ve been to London many times but it seems like I had always concentrated on […]

I met Kati and Steven last year through some mutual friends. It was like:  “Oh we just got engaged!” and I was like “Oh I’m a wedding photographer!”  BAM.  I say this a lot. I love the couples I get to work with. But the awesome thing is that a lot of them become really […]

A neon graveyard.  I mean….. HOW COOL IS THAT?  So lets back up a bit before getting into the cool details of this wedding location. I met Jason a long long time ago. To this day, he is still the first person that ever offered me a beer. So I thought he was the coolest […]

“We have a surprise for you guys, not only is it Eva’s baptism today, but it is also our wedding” To be honest, I knew what was going to happen before they announced it. That morning as they were setting up for the baptism, Mar told me she had a confession, that it was also […]
