2017 Favorite Wedding Photos

2017 Favorite Wedding Photos
Every year, in addition to photographing my own weddings, one of my favorite things to do is work with other wedding photographers as a second shooter. This year I was fortunate enough to work with some wonderful people who are amazing photographers: Holly D. Photography and Verus Weddings. I also had the opportunity to be an associate photographer for JBJ Pictures fo[...]

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[...]

2015 Favorite Personal Photos

2015 Favorite Personal Photos

Life wasn't just full of sourdough and [...]

2015 Favorite 2nd Shooting Photos

2015 Favorite 2nd Shooting Photos

Since I moved to San Francisco, I didn't know as many photographers, so I didn't get to 2nd shoot very often. Fortunately, the weddings I was able to be a 2nd for were pretty amazing! 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[...]
