It's not really fair having a wedding this great at the beginning of the season. It sets the bar unreasonably high for the rest of the year. Katie and David got married at Rancho Chiquita, a private residence, in the hills of Malibu. The grounds of the home were set up PERFECTLY for a wedding and the incredible house was a perfect backdrop to shoot against. The fact that its in the hills overlooking the ocean didn't hurt either. Haha. :)

Here are some favorites from their day!

Because here is a list of multiplayer games is that the leave was asked for more.
Your favorite class in High School is back... minus the power tools and the creepy teacher missing 3 fingers.

The workshops can cover anything you want... shooting, posing/directing clients, processing/photoshop, blogging, pricing, pricing for destination weddings, dealing with clients, wedding day time management... its totally up to you. We can sit and talk for the whole time or we can get outside and put your new knowledge to use in a shoot... again, its up to you.

These sessions will, for the most part, take place in Orange County or New York City but if you're scared of flying or have a group or would just rather me come to you let me know and we can work out the travel.

I had the good fortune to attend a WOODSHOP in November of last year. I can only say " DO IT!!" Michael's creativity and attention to detail are definitely to be learned from, and paired with his calm, but fun manner with clients/subjects makes him one of the best photographers in the country. Book this today -- you will be glad for every penny you spend.

June 30, 2010 Photographers , Portraits

Well its been WAY too long but I'm back. Lot's of travel, lots of weddings, lot's of shoots, a cross country move... all this has added up to blogging being put on the back burner. Well that's over. This will be the first post of many. So keep coming back... and tell your friends that the rumor that I disappeared isn't true. :)

This shoot is from last year and I ad always meant to blog it but for some reason or another I never did. This is my friend Edmund Prieto. He's one of the nicest and most talented guys I've ever met. He's good at literally everything he does. One of the things he does is skateboard. At one time in his life he was a sponsored, touring skater. He asked me to shoot him last year so he could finally have some good images of him doing what he loves.

Here's Edmund.

I've yet to meet Edmund but, from what I know, he has the greatest heart!

Karin and Dan got married at Descanso Gardens. I love outdoor ceremonies and this is one of my favorite locations. The wedding site is positioned perfectly for beautiful backlit ceremonies.

Here are some images from their day.

They chose to see each other before their wedding so we were able to get most of the portraits done before the ceremony.

Of course after the ceremony we had some amazing light so I stole them away before heading off to the reception!
