2016 Favorite Wedding Photos – Second Shooting

2016 Favorite Wedding Photos - Second Shooting
Every year, one of my favorite things to do is work with other wedding photographers as a second shooter. Not only do I get to hang out with some great people, but I pretty much always learn something as well. This year I mainly worked with two different Bay Area wedding photographers: Holly Drennen and Jeremy Hohengarten. Thanks to these two awesome people for trusti[...]

2016 Favorite Personal Photos

2016 Favorite Personal Photos
Every year I like to look back and revisit photos that I've taken for myself. I spend a lot of the year photographing other people's special moments, so spending a bit of time reviewing a few of my own is a great way to end the year. In 2016 I continued to explore in and around San Francisco, but also ended up going on some amazing trips. From a quick trip down the co[...]

There were a few early season weddings [...]

2015 Favorite Engagement Session Photos

2015 Favorite Engagement Session Photos
There were so many of my wonderful couples I photographed this year who commented on how glad they were that they decided to do an engagement session. I can't tell you how happy I am when couples want to do one! Not only do they have a chance to get comfortable in front of the camera while I get to know how they interact with each other, but we get to know each other [...]

2015 Resolutions

2015 Resolutions
Every year I make a set of business resolutions. If you’re interested, here are last year’s. How did I do on them? Let’s just see…– Do more inspiring things to be more inspired. I didn't do so well on this one. I tried a few new recipes and took a few more walks than usual, but I didn't really change any habits or drastically change my behaviors. I did get to trav[...]
