I haven't forgotton you.....

Hang tight. I have quite a few posts to update. Two close friends of mine recently wrote their own fairytale after saying their "I do's" in front of a crowd of witnesses that contained their relative and friends. Although I was in the wedding, every chance I got I was pressing down on that little black button that swears to capture bits and pieces of that beautiful day.
Check back in a week or so, and I'll have them posted.

Miss you. See you soon.

The Adams Wedding

Mr. and Mrs. Adams: Thank you for giving me the opportunity to photograph your special day. I hope my photos represent the everlasting memories the two of you will share the rest of your lives together.
I found it easy to photograph the two of you. You were naturals in front of the camera.

Shine on.

Baby Bodhi

A couple months back I had the pleasure of taking photos of the sweetest little boy you ever did see. With his laid back attitude and big blue eyes and giggly little smile, it's enough to make anybody heart melt. Bodhi was an absolute joy to photograph and his mother and father made the session lots of fun!
Adi and Adam, you are one set of lucky parents!

Anybody Home?

I know it seems like I fell off the earth, but I am still here and kickin'. I am still working on trying to get a website up and going so please be patient, and I promise it will come. I have been busy with work and life. Good thing, I guess but sometimes it takes the wind out of me, and even though it seems like I have disappeared , but I assure you, I'm here, well, and happy! I will be sharing some of my recent work with you, and please don't hesitate to give me your feedback.
Be well!

Erica and Ryan Satchwell Wedding

Late last month I was honored to take photographs of my dear friends wedding. I have known Erica since grade school and met her now husband Ryan the latter part of last year. They couldn't be more perfect together. They decided to marry in San Francisco's City Hall, and I think they made a fantastic choice. City Hall is a beautiful building with breathtaking architecture design and detail, and I recommend anyone that hasn't been inside to stop by and take a look. I met up with Erica's immediate family at City Hall before the bride and groom graced everyone with their presence. When the happy couple arrived, Erica looked so very beautiful and Ryan looked so handsome, and excited to make Erica his bride. We hung around City Hall until the priest was ready to marry the two at the top of the stairs. The entire ceremony took about 5 minutes. It was simple, short and sweet. I couldn't be more happy to see the newlyweds recite their vows and make their future together final and concrete.
The entire day into the evening dinner was very exciting, full of lots of belly laughs (is what I call the loud laughs, that come straight from your belly), many kisses, and tears of joy.

Erica and Ryan: I wish you a lifetime of happiness together, and I am very honored that I was able to witness (on your marriage certificate too!), and photograph your big day.

Cheers to you both!

Night Lights

For a while now, I have been wanting to go out and shoot some night photography. Just for myself. Everyday I drive an overpass that overlooks the 580 Freeway, and everyday I tell myself that I will take some time in the evening to bring my camera out and photograph the headlights of the cars driving on the freeway. But when life seems to head from one day to the next so quickly, I find myself in the same place the very next day telling myself the same exact thing. Thanks to my beloved beau who encouraged me one night to go out and shoot the night lights I've been wanting to capture. We even made an evening of it. Bundled up in warm clothing, road soda ready and music stocked we drove to Grizzly Peak first. This seems to be a popular spot for the younger crowd for late nights, but since we arrived there early we had the perfect spot. No wonder the peak sees a lot of company at night. The view is absolutely breathtaking! After I took my shots, we headed ......well, home I guess. But we did make one last stop, to the overpass overlooking 580. This is no fantastic scene at night, and certainly not during the day, but nonetheless, I could capture the headlights of the cars passing under. Sounds boring huh? You'd be wrong. I got some great shots, that I am ready proud of.
See for yourself!

I love this shotHighway 580
The concrete that made it all happen

The Jopes Family

In mid February I had the opportunity to photograph an old family friend that I have known for years. the Jopes family were a lot of fun to work with. They took me to this beautiful winery in the Livermore area. The weather was pretty crisp outside but nonetheless it was a clear sunny day. Photographing a newborn definetly has it's challenges but is no doubt a lot of fun.

I'd like to share some of my favorite images that I captured that day.
