Well, I am about to get on a plane to Oregon for this weekends wedding, but I just couldn’t leave before posting some teasers from Alicia & Mike’s gorgeous Santa Barbara engagement session. Truly a fun, romantic, and amazing day with a stunning couple. Enjoy! More when I return.
Quick teaser from yesterdays ocean themed fashion session with the stunning Amanda Woo and makeup by the extremely talented Maggie Cathey of Mags Cathey Makeup. More to come soon!
Can Awesomeness be a theme? Cause that’s what this wedding was. Featuring: Iron Man on the dance floor, glow sticks, silly string, bubble gum, and a Les Miserables themed flash mob that will blow your mind. Plus, any wedding where the bride and groom dive off a stage for some amazing crowd surfing has to be labeled as “awesome at its best”, right? If all of that wasn’t enough, the pinnacle of the whole day – our lovely bride and groom – have to be two of the coolest cats in town. Seriously amazing people literally bursting with personality, fun, love, and kindness. Separately these two are a forced to be reckoned with. Together? Unstoppable. Congrats to this super-power couple. I am blessed to know you and so stoked I got to be part of your epic day!

Road trip! Kicked off the first of many bay area weddings this year with Vigen & Cristina’s San Francisco wedding. Let me tell you, this was one fun, elegant, crazy, and beautiful day. All I can say is Vigen and Cristina, you guys rock! But don’t take my word for it, I think the pics speak for themselves. Plus we got to shoot at the infamous Palace of Fine Arts as well as The Bridges Golf Club. Hard to go wrong there.
Thanks heaps and heaps to Vigen and Cristina for having us as a part of your unforgettable day. My cheeks are still sore from smiling. You two are an absolutely perfect match and we wish you nothing but a life full of love, beauty, adventure, and laughter.
This wedding felt like something out of a James Bond movie. Tuxedos, bow ties, cool cars, and of course the beautiful love interest. Or in this case, Roxanne, an absolutely stunning bride. But above all, what really stood out to me about this wedding was the overwhelming sense of love and family. Two different families from different parts of the world came together to form one new family and to embrace Till & Roxanne as they took their first steps as husband and wife. The whole day hummed with the buzz of excitement, laughter, love, and unity set to the backdrop of the famous Castle Green in Pasadena as well as the beautiful Pasadena City Hall. Congrats to Till & Roxanne! May you both have a life full of love, family, adventure, and success!

So far 2013 has been packed with a lot of big life changes. Some good, some bad. Trying to embrace the good in the midst of the bad can be challenging, and with so many things happening all at once it has been hard to know what to focus on. So I thought this Self Portrait would be quite fitting.
The good news is I have found 22 new ways to be happy. Want to know what they are?

Been experimenting with some fun photo techniques. Here are a few zoom blur shots from this morning. Blur and shape distortion/duplication are results from zooming in at a slow shutter speed giving the images a very surreal effect. Textures and antique toning added in post. What do you think?
