I had great time photographing Ed and Sparky yesterday. We went out to Ed’s super secret hiking spot. It was a treat for sure. Ed and I have several common interests including gardening, IPAs, and visual communications. Good company, beautiful location, San Diego weather…what more could you ask for? This was one of the most relaxed and enjoyable assignments that I’ve had recently.


What a fun afternoon…You guys did great! You really made my job easy. Shooting in San Francisco was a blast too. Thanks for showing me your town. Tony and I are really looking forward to shooting the wedding. I love shooting destination weddings. See you in a couple weeks!


Portia and Dwight were married at the Four Seasons Aviara. The perfect couple got the perfect day! With Portia’s mom, Belita Butler, owner of Events Above and Beyond, doing double duty as mother-of-the-bride and coordinator, everything ran like clock work and looked like a million bucks.


Liana and Rick are getting ready to jet off to Indonesia for their wedding in September. Did I mention that I love shooting destination weddings? : ) They are friends of mine from a pool league that we participate in on Monday nights. So, we’re used to shooting together… just a different kind of shooting. I enjoy photographing friends because the rapport is already there so it’s that much easier to jump right in. They were great to work with, bringing tons of energy and openness to the shoot. We had a busy afternoon starting in Balboa Park,  then heading downtown and finally catching sunset at the beach in La Jolla. I bet Liana will wear more comfortable shoes next time!

Enjoy the photos…


Galen has taken a liking to the piano! We couldn’t be happier. Music is an important part of our lives and we hope he shares in that love too.
