And here you have it: the single most special engagement session I have ever photographed. It was the ultimate privilege to shoot these photos for my best friend of 25 years, and the love of her life. Their love is kind, infectious, considerate and so full; full of laughter, compliments and joy. To be able to spend […]

When the Napa fires struck in October, these two were left with no choice but to cancel their arrangement and hold off on saying “I do.” What seemed like devastation at the time proved to be a blessing in disguise; their Tahoe elopement was one of the most beautiful + intimate ceremonies I’ve ever had […]

Weddings don’t get better than this. These two had a love so sweet I found it hard to put the camera down for even a moment. Plus, Victoria has the most incredible taste; we were beyond thrilled to shoot a wedding with so much vibrance and color (that BOUQUET!). We started out with a first […]

I met Margaret 20 years ago and spent a majority of my adolescence by her side; pool parties, bus rides, piano practice, hair trials (/errors), tye-dying and so forth. We drifted, as so many do, but I couldn’t be […]

Wow, guys. I don’t know that I’ll ever stop ohhing/awwing over this California engagement shoot. These two have a love so pure and so sweet, I had to pick my jaw up off the floor a few times. Emilia found this absolutely stunning cliffside church in Palos Verdes and we thought we’d somehow defied space/time […]

Recently, I was asked, “What makes you love it? I mean, what keeps you coming back?” He was referring to photography and it was one of the better questions I’ve been asked in awhile. Why DO I keep doing it? What makes me silence the little voice that says, “You can’t” and believe that I can? […]
