Picking an awesome location like Camp Lucy is a good start, and a band that plays their instruments while dancing among your guests doesn’t hurt either. However, the real […]

Who needs photobooth props when you have these 2 adorable little nephews? Picture frames, balloons, chalkboards and fake moustaches are great, but nothing beats a bow-tie adorned baby. Pass ’em around! Just be careful not to leave them behind as so often happens with the fake moustaches…  San Francisco Wedding Photographer – Austin Wedding Photographer – […]

That lipstick was supposed to be smudge-proof. SMUDGE-PROOF! That’s ok, I think Tim wears it quite well indeed. It goes well with the green tie, don’t you think? I love that photo more than I can possibly explain…and we didn’t even begin to discuss the yellow shoes. San Francisco Wedding Photographer – New York City Wedding […]

Alexis and Toby had so many awesome little touches that it’s hard to pick a favorite…the sunglasses, custom Vans, Cubs shout-out on the groom’s cake, honey jars, classic car exit, etc., etc., etc. However, the clear winner of the night was the guest “log.” Amazing….and just what I would expect of a couple that was […]

Wayyyyy back in the fall of 2005, when I was still occasionally shooting on this thing called “35mm film” and we all thought that MySpace was the most amazing thing since the Pontiac Aztek, I photographed my very first wedding as a lead photographer, and I was lucky enough to have Villa Antonia as my […]

Usually I’d post something here about my favorite detail or two (or three) from the wedding day, but seriously, I don’t want to go on and on (and on) and bore you to death…because I’d need a lot of room to list everything that was amazing about Eric and Lisa’s wedding. Suffice it to say […]

So, what do you do when the forecast shows rain for your entire wedding day – and the forecast ends up being correct? Well, it always pays to have a good rain plan, and possibly the best rain plan imaginable is to have gigantic floor-to-ceiling windows allowing for a fabulous view of storm clouds blowing […]

Wow, it’s been a busy month so far in magazine-land! Lesley and Paul’s November 2010 wedding was featured in Elle Taiwan’s summer wedding special, while one of my favorite photos from Hillary and Eric’s April 2011 wedding was used to illustrate the “photojournalistic style” in the August issue of Brides magazine for their Ultimate Guide […]

I’ve been looking forward to Ioana and Kevin’s wedding for quite some time, ever since we met up in Santa Cruz for their engagement session on the boardwalk. At that session, we ended up with photos of the following: 1) Ioana and Kevin riding the legendary Looff Carousel, the very carousel featured in The Lost […]

When central Texas turns up the heat a little before schedule (100+ in the first week of June!), what’s a couple to do? Well, picking a location like The Mansion at Judges’ Hill with plenty of shade shows some EXCELLENT foresight…and arranging to have delicious cucumber water on tap for your guests definitely doesn’t hurt […]

Lesley and Paul’s November 2010 wedding was about as amazing as they come, so it’s really no surprise that they were recently featured on Style Me Pretty! Thanks to Three Apples Events, The Palm Door, and of course Lesley and Paul for giving me a great palette to work with. Congrats guys! Austin Wedding Photographer […]

When I tried to describe how awesome these centerpieces were, it didn’t really do them justice. “Yeah, there were old books, and antique cameras…and succulents!” Only a photo truly does them justice. And how crazy cute is that ring bearer? I mean, I know that ring bearers and flower girls are there to be cute […]

Hillary and Eric’s wedding marked an exciting first for me – first wedding on a golf course. And not a little Putt-Putt one either. Also notable – the world’s biggest curlers, first groom with an amazing pink bow tie, first wedding with near hurricane-force winds, first sombrero-throw dance move, as well as some, ummmmm…let’s just […]
