Engagements

Becky and John are a love story if there ever were one. A chance encounter, an overseas romance, and a proposal in the Gardens of Versailles. Not only is their story incredible, they’re just such genuine, kind-hearted people. We can’t wait for their wedding, fall of 2012!

Engagements

We spent the day with Brianne & Marcus in South-East Portland, OR. From one street to another, the quirky neighborhoods hide little gems of enjoyment. We also spent some time getting to talk to this fantastic couple in the Green Dragon Tavern, a Rogue-run spot in the South-East. Overall, I love the area – great little neighborhoods with beautiful trees and parks, and just a few minutes away, awesome, grungy & textured warehouse districts. Portland is such a diverse place to shoot, or just hang out, have a beer, some good food, and explore. Oh, did I mention? It’s my home city šŸ˜‰ True story! We look forward to next Summer and capturing Brianne & Marcus’ wedding at Merrywood Farms in Oregon City, OR. Enjoy the blog…

Engagements

Amanda & Zach are an amazing couple; they’re fun andĀ adventurous. They wanted to have photos taken at Detroit Lake, OR, but on the way we stopped at a pizza place in Mill City, OR that holds a lot of sentimental value for them. We ended up doing most of the shoot in Mill City since the scenery was just so beautiful. There were several bridges crossing the scenic river and the leaves were turning…what a nice time to be in the North-West. We look forward to their wedding this coming Summer in Salem, OR. Enjoy the photos..

Last weekend I met up with my long-time friends, and their two sons of three years and nine months. It’s always a great time to see the young ones growing up. We spend the afternoon hanging around Corona Del Mar, climbing rocks and getting squirted by Jacob and his water bottle.

Portraits ā€¢ Weddings

I recently had the pleasure of doing a Trash the Dress shoot with Samira. We started off in downtown San Diego to get some urban-feel shots, then moved along to Mission Trails, and finally to La Jolla Shores to truly get the dress dirty!

Engagements

Last weekend I did an engagement shoot for Sherilyn and Mike. It was a great time following them around and getting mostly candid shots of them just having fun! They’re currently planning their wedding for August 2012. We began the day off at Balboa Park in San Diego, then continued on to La Jolla Cove for a very nice sunset.Ā All the best to them. I’m looking forward to next year and shooting their wedding!

Engagements

I recently had the pleasure of shooting an engagement session for Lisa & Alex, a fantastic couple who will be getting married next September. We began the session at Heartwell Park in Long Beach. Lisa & Alex had their first date at Rainbow Harbor, so we went there for our second location and took some shots as they wandered around the pier.Ā UnfortunatelyĀ the weather wasn’t cooperating, so the final location, Belmont Shore jetty, was not a great sunset location. Overall we all had a blast recreating some of their first moments together, and I can’t wait to see them progress as a couple and as husband & wife.
