“You should come up to this hidden mountain lake where my family has a cabin for photos… well, thinking about it now, yeah… you’re definitely coming up here for photos!” I mean, dang… am I happy about this final plan.  Because wow, this was some sort of magic that we all made around this sleepy […]

Punta Islita Costa Rica Wedding Photos :: JoJo + Garrett

I’m just going to put this out there… Katana, Kyle… have some babies already for god’s sake! I pointed my camera at these two young lovers and magic just happened.  Wether it be on top of the world or hidden away in a cove, these two brought the freak’n fire.     **shot on Kodak […]

Top of the World and Laguna Beach Portrait Session :: Katana + Kyle

This was an unreal day… this day was something so much more magnificent than anything I could have anticipated… this day was simply… beautiful. When Jacquie and Basil, two amazingly in-tune humans, with such style and grace, more kindness and wide grins than you can handle, decided to simply… get away in the name of […]

Indian Cove Elopement on Film :: Jacquie + Basil

New Orleans is a place, that for some reason I never really had visited.  And where every single person I met was just plain down to party. With half of Marybeth and Nathan’s wedding attendees coming from the area, you better believe that I was surrounded by the kindest, rowdiest, funniest group of individual personalities […]

Joshua Tree Portrait Session:: Candace + Willie

When other photographers write you, asking you to shoot their wedding, its easy to get a little nervous worrying that you’ll live up to their standards. When said photographers then ask you to travel 16 hours and join them in Southern Spain for a once in a lifetime experience, its easy to blackout on your […]

Aguas de Villaharta Wedding in Cordoba, Spain :: Natalia + John

  So something happened a few weeks ago… something so unreal that when I found out I literally screamed like an 11-year-old battling puberty; an 11-year-old who happened to be holding a scolding hot cup of coffee.  Said coffee found it’s way straight to my lap after my body suddenly convulsed upon reading that I […]

Rangefinder Magazine’s 30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography 2017

  Talk about a wild wedding day where the entire family… scratch that, the entire neighborhood comes together for one heck of an event! I should back up to begin with the location.  One in which I never knew existed. James’ family owns a house 3000ft above the Palm Springs/Coachella valley, within a (secret) neighborhood […]

Palm Springs Desert Mountian Wedding :: Hilary + James

  I preface with this… Bali has my soul. Just looking through these as I’m posting, gives me severe “post trip depression”. But it’s all good, the wife and I plan on moving there in a few years… right babe?? We arrive minutes before sunset in Uluwatu at the impossibly cool, cliffside Uluwatu Surf Villas… […]
