Jack - Baby Portrait Session

So this handsome little devil is Jack. I shot his parents wedding in San Diego last year which now seems like a life time ago. I just love this job. I get to document the natural progression of life.
Isn't Jack the cutest? He's like a modern day Gerber baby..

Chloe & Chris - Married

Chloe and Chris got married in a church that I used to ice skate in when I was a little kid. The church used to be an ice skating rink years ago and as you can image ice skating in San Diego wasn't all that popular so it closed down. Southern Californian's like to to be outdoors as much as possible and we hate being cold.

Anyway, the wedding was lovely and I could tell they put in a lot of time and effort to make it unique. I loved that the groom wore traditional Indian wedding attire even though he is not of Indian decent. The bridesmaids carried lanterns with lit candles as they walked down the aisle, and the bride and groom put together a funny home made movie about Adam and Eve, staring themselves. All these personal touches made for a fun and vibrant wedding that I was really excited to document.

My little bro is married

First my little bro graduated as documented in this way earlier posting of "My little bro is a college graduate" and now I get to blog about his wedding. They had fun and simple, "bellies hangin' out" kind of wedding at my aunt's house on the Central Coast with just our combined little families. It was perfect.
This is just another great reason why I love my job as a photographer. I get to document special events for those close to me. That's when this job goes on to a whole other level of meaning for me wrapped in even more emotions.
Yes, it was a bit difficult being Maid of Honor and Photographer so I couldn't get all the shots I wanted but I wouldn't have let any other person(s) do either job(s).

Beautiful Pismo Beach, Ca.

Charlotte Elizabeth

Last weekend was my busy kick off to wedding season. I managed to shoot two weddings and a portrait session all in a span of three days. Not to mention there was over 1000 miles of flying and driving in between.
I'll post the weddings later but I wanted to start off with some images of adorable and smart Charlotte. She wanted me to take pictures of her hula hooping which I thought was a cute idea for an action portrait session.

Jennifer & Kyle - Engaged

Finally we were able to make this engagement session happen! I'm not complaining about the weather here in California because I know there are plenty of other places that have it much worse, but SF weather can be pretty temperamental and it rained a lot this past month. So we caught a break and had a great afternoon exploring SF.
Jenny and Kyle were up for anything and didn't even question my weird requests like "Ok now I want you to squat in these bushes" or "Now we just have to jump this little wire fence and slide down this embankment". I just kept reminding them of the poor little models that have to suffer for the right shot. So by the time they slid down the rocky embankment (without shoes) with the wiping wind in their faces to get to the cliffs edge for our finale shot they for sure knew of the suffering that Kate Moss endures...minus the million dollar pay check.
I'm looking forward their wedding in sunny San Diego!
