Six Year Anniversary Photos - Dallas Texas

While we were in Dallas a few weeks ago for a conference, we scheduled an anniversary session with the talented Jennefer Wilson. I met Jenn at a photographer’s conference in Georgia several years ago and we hit it off. Since then, I’ve always loved and continued to follow her beautiful fine art work!

Tucson Arizona Travel Photos

A few weeks ago, March 16th to be exact, was our six year wedding anniversary. In years past, we’ve gone on a trip together to celebrate and this year was no different. Our good friends the Goodwillie’s moved last summer from Chico back to their hometown in Tucson Arizona. Even though we’ve only know each other for three years, we know these two are lifelong friends and they have already been such a blessing to us. Having supportive community has always been a high value of ours in business and marriage. We decided to make our anniversary more than just celebrating our marriage, but celebrating those who have supported us a long the way.

Best Places to See in Paris - A Destination Wedding Photographer from California's Perspective

We are so excited to share with you our trip to Paris! Every-time I look at these photos, I am immediately filled with so much nostalgia from our trip. We had the most amazing time together that was filled with adventure and lots of rest. We booked this trip about six months out knowing it would be the end of our wedding season in California. As much as I am a planner, we didn’t really plan much until we landed in Paris. We had an idea of what we wanted to do but the first night we were there, we planned out our week. We hit a lot of touristy spots first like the Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Palace of Versailles. Afterwards, we felt a little touristed out, so we decided to wander in some of our favorite neighborhoods and discover some hidden non-touristy gems. Our routine consisted of waking up, finding a new coffee shop, wandering through the neighborhoods for photo adventures and discovering delicious food along the way.

Downtown San Jose Fall Wedding Photos - Danny&Gina

Danny and Gina were married on a beautiful Fall afternoon in downtown San Jose. They first met their freshman year at Cal Poly and hit it off right away. They quickly bonded over the fact that they both come from big Italian families. They exchanged stories of fond memories growing up with delicious home-cooked meals. I asked Gina when she knew she wanted to marry Danny and she said as soon as she met him, she started telling her friends she was going to marry him. Now six years later and her word became a reality.

Mendocino Area Vacation Suggestions - Destination Photographer

A few weeks ago Stephen and I were in Mendocino for a beautiful wedding on the coast at the Heritage House Resort. The wedding took place overlooking the cliffs and had the most spectacular views. Like most of our personal work, we only brought our medium format film camera. This time in particular, we chose only to shoot on our new Hasselblad so I could get used to using it faster for our newborn sessions. This camera is super fun as it’s all manual, has no batteries or anything. It shoots in a unique 6x6 square format which is fun and creatively challenging.
