Kat and Jan were married at the end of summer at the Retro Ranch in Temecula, California. They were referred to me by one of our  favorite second shooters, Ferdinand.

Kat and Jan both love to rock climb and paintball- I doubt they do both at the same time, but I may have just created a new sport.

From what I can remember, it was 110 degrees on their wedding day- people were anxiously fanning themselves to stave the heat.

A dry hot wind blew and it made it hard for the mothers’ to light the candle as the ceremony started.

The anxiety went disappeared and time slowed as soon as Kat began walking down the aisle.

There were several tears that dropped and laughters shared that day.

My favorite moment was when Kat’s dad had pulled the trigger a bit too soon and mistook Kat and Jan’s first dance as the father-daughter dance. Jan played on like a true gentleman and kept his cool.

Right after the first dance, a flashmob broke out and a large group of cousins, colleagues, and friends danced in celebration of the beautiful newlyweds.

Enjoy their photos as we enjoyed being a part of their wedding.

Walking in Los Angeles with Ahmad

Ahmad’s hit song, Back in the Day, has been stuck in my head longer than I can remember and it put a smile on my face when he contacted us about his portraits.

As we walked through the Disney Music Hall, we spoke about his future plans, his creative process, and his spirituality was pretty cool. As you probably know, we mostly photograph weddings which can be very fast paced and may not leave alot of room for conversation, so these long strolls with a camera in my hand searching for good places to stop is great food for the soul (corny, I know.)

Portrait sessions, whether they be engagement sessions or shoots like this one, allow me the opportunity to learn alot about my clients. Even when I was a kid, I always asked alot of questions and I feel like in my profession a good conversation helps with easing what could very well be a very awkward session. We separate ourselves from other photographers with our humor, and our stories.

We value the time we spend with our clients and enjoy trading experiences with them, these small moments, as quick as they pass, make for excellent photos.

Laura and Austin at the Balboa Inn

April 20th, 2013

Let’s talk about second shooting. In almost every wedding I photograph, I bring along a second shooter(sometimes a third.) A second shooter isn’t an assistant, they’re there to photograph a wedding alongside the main photographer. An added set of eyes or a second shoulder to help with the stresses of wedding photography, but usually they’re […]

Let’s talk about second shooting. In almost every wedding I photograph, I bring along a second shooter(sometimes a third.) A second shooter isn’t an assistant, they’re there to photograph a wedding alongside the main photographer. An added set of eyes or a second shoulder to help with the stresses of wedding photography, but usually they’re there to provide just the right amount of moral support.

On my weekends free, I’m usually more than happy to help other photographer friends shoot weddings. These weddings give me a chance to sharpen my skills, try new angles, and meet some awesome people.

I photographed this wedding alongside my friend, Craig from Craig Norris Photo, sometime last year.

I’m grateful for every wedding I photograph and the awesome people I meet in them.

During this wedding I met a hilarious cast of characters from the bridal party. The almost serious, but not quite so, groom, Austin and his amazingly wild bride, Laura.

I loved their attitude about everything, super laid back and so easygoing that it wouldn’t have been hard to forget I wasn’t a guest at their wedding.

Special Thanks to Craig for allowing me the chance to second shoot this :)
