Stop Pushing a “First Look” on Brides

Traditionally a bride and groom don’t see each other at all on their wedding day until that moment when the bride comes walking down the isle. All that planning and prep ends in that climax where it all comes together and you’re getting married. It’s emotional. It’s amazing! More recently, it’s become popular to do […]

Mount Shasta Resort Wedding in the Rain

I have a lot of empathy for couples planning their wedding. Sometimes many months in advance, they’re laying down plans. Making decisions. One of them was to plan their wedding in Mid-May when the weather is usually very reliable. It rained, a lot. It was cold and the best part was how well everyone wore […]

Do you Shoot with Front-fill Flash?

After a long hiatus from podcasting, it’s time to get this train moving again. I used to self-host the show right here on my website with the Podlove plug-in which was nerdy and fun, but it took much effort to get the show published. That extra friction slowed me down and eventually, I stopped publishing. […]

Tasha and Brian’s Engagemet Shoot in Redding

The cool Spring weather has been holding on, so we were blessed with a light breeze and some thin high clouds to take the edge off the sun. I used this cute little park tucked in a neighborhood in the Enterprise area which was perfect. We had green grass, shaded benches and beautiful redwood and […]

Bell Family Shoot in Red Bluff

They had two brand new grand babies that were super adorable. Crystal and I loved every minute of it. If you’re interested and getting your family’s photos done, please […]

Check out the teaser and like my page to get notified to the release of the full film down the road. Filmmakers This […]

Sweet 16 Portaits in Cottonwood

Grace is my niece and she has been for the last 16 years. 😂 It’s crazy how time flies and it’s been fun to see her grow up in photos I’ve taken over the years. It’s been an exceptionally raining winter this year in Norcal, so we had to move to plan B. Downtown Cottonwood […]

Lassen Engagement Shoot with Joleen and Jordan

I love my adventurous couples. Not that there’s anything wrong with public parks, but sometimes they start to get repetitive and a change of scenery can really stimulate my creativity. So when Joleen said they’d like to shoot in the snow up in the mountains, I perked right up. A major storm forced us to […]
