I Love…What I Do

So, What Do I Do?

Simply put, I create portraits that bring out the inner beauty or character of my subjects. Very often my subjects don’t realize what lies just beneath the surface, how handsome or beautiful they truly are, that is until they see how I captured them. Whether I am doing a simple outdoor portrait session, or capturing a wedding from start to finish, my tools are always the same…my camera obviously and accessories come to mind…these may be essential, but certainly not the most important. The two tools that I feel are most important are light, and shadow. How I (and any photographer, really) manipulate, shape, and work with these tools is the way we express and share our vision. This is what I do.

When something catches my eye, it’s usually the interplay of light and shadow. Sometimes I become mesmerized by how a sliver of light falls upon someone’s face, how shadows mold and accentuate their contours, causing me to stare…which is a source for embarrassment if I’m caught lingering too long.

What I Love

Capturing someone’s beauty (hidden or otherwise) is just the beginning. Revealing the images I’ve captured to them, well, that’s what I love.

Adam + Desiree’s Engagement Shoot

Desiree and Adam

Venice Beach provided the perfect location for Adam and Desiree’s engagement shoot last weekend. We spent the afternoon shooting away, and as the sun began to set, the sky exploded with color, giving the couple a spectacular sunset to cap off the session.

Chris & Tanya’s Wedding

Running the Sparkler Gauntlet

Chris and Tanya were married at Talega Golf Club in San Clemente on January 7, 2012. This elegant wedding was a photographer’s dream, perfect weather, a venue that was spectacular, and accommodating, we even took a golf cart ride touring the course to seek out some unique locations to shoot.

A Wedding Without a Cake Is Like…

Tiers of Joy

Tiers of Joy

…a movie without popcorn. The history of the wedding cake can be traced to ancient Rome, when it was customary for the groom to break barley bread over the bride’s head to seal the wedding.

Today we see couples playfully smashing a bit of cake in each others face. The way I see it, I would much rather have cake on my face, and not in my hair; but then again, being bald does have it’s advantages.
