One of the (very few) downsides to being a primarily natural light photographer is that I’m dependent on the weather to be able to shoot sessions outside. The day of this session was predicted to be a 1% chance of rain with a balmy 75 temp! Ha. There was cold wind and persistent mist the […]

They met many (MANY) moons ago at a New Year’s Eve party, got engaged after dating for 8 years (8 years? Really, Colin?), and were excited to plan their perfect wedding! Then […]

When you’re at a wedding, you expect to shed a tear or two, even as the photographer!

At Staci and Michael’s beautiful wedding at the unique La […]

The last time I took pictures of this beautiful couple, they wanted grassy fields and dreamy sunrise pictures, since they wanted to include their 3 crazy and adorable dogs with them!

So many times, my favorite engagement sessions are with people who have never had professional pictures taken before! They’re usually nervous, they feel a little (or a lot) awkward, and they’re worried about how they look. Dude, join the club! That’s my everyday life! That’s why I like to start off all my sessions with […]
