Photographic Humble Pie

I’m feeling a little down this week. I submitted a couple photos in our local PPSDC Print Competition on Tuesday night, and both my images tanked. I guess I’m just a little unsure of what will actually do well, or if my style of photography can ever do well in competition. It’s a little discouraging when I consider submitting prints to National PPA or WPPI print competitions. This first image was taken from this really great [intlink id=”san-diego-engagement-photography-imperial-beach-windansea” type=”post”]engagement session here in San Diego[/intlink]. The other image was from a [intlink id=”wedding-ramona-private-estate” type=”post”]wedding in Ramona[/intlink] a few years back. Another photographer […]

A Welcome Back to San Diego Wedding – Erin & Mike’s Beach Wedding

Wow… It has really been a very eventful couple of weeks. My divorce to Heather became finalized on July 15th, which was to be our 2 year anniversary. My week long trip to San Diego for my birthday became a moving trip in the Nth hour. And on my drive out, I climbed the 12,000 ft Sierra Blanca in New Mexico which turned out to be the most physically challenging thing I have ever done. And upon arrival, my dear friend, Marne, had arranged for me to photograph two of the most warm spirited and incredible people, as they came […]

John + Cameryn | Ramona, CA Wedding

I met John and Cameryn last year. They own a massage and healing center in here in San Diego and are freakishly in love with each other. When they asked me to be their wedding photographer I was more than honored. The wedding was quite an affair. John’s parents offered to hold it on their private estate in Ramona which is about 30 minutes from the center of San Diego. They grow Protea flowers on the big farm, and the whole area is beautiful and lush with all kinds of greenery everywhere. Wandering around the place was like walking through […]

Robert + Megan | San Diego Wedding | Four Seasons Aviara

I’ve been waiting for this for months! Robert + Megan’s wedding has finally come. I had a ton of fun with them when I [intlink id=”engagement-photography-usd-campus” type=”post”]photographed their engagement session in July[/intlink]. It was the biggest wedding I’ve photographed yet, and they went all out. The Four Seasons Aviara Club House on the golf course. It was a beautiful fall afternoon. What color we do get in San Diego was on display in golds, and oranges. And Megan and Robert’s friends and family were assembled en masse. As an aside… I’m also starting to develop a theory that all make-up […]

David + Steffany | San Diego Wedding | ZLAC Rowing Club

David and Steffany were married on a broody and stormy January day here in San Diego at the ZLAC Rowing Club. The ceremony was positioned so that all the wedding guests could look south over Mission Bay at the clouds rolling in. For a short time before the ceremony we had some incredible glancing light, and we took advantage of that by taking some of the formal (and not so formal) family photographs. During the ceremony it was a little hard to tell if David was sniffling due to the cold of if he was just choked up from emotion. […]

Rocio + Aaron | San Diego Wedding | Museum of Photographic Arts

Rocio is a good friend of mine who has modeled for some fine art photography for me. And when she told me she was getting married, I was of course over-joyed for her and her fiancée  Aaron. But I also wanted to get into wedding photography, so I asked her if she’d consider having me shoot it. When she told me that it was going to be at the Museum of Photographic Arts (MOPA), I insisted that I photograph it. I practically grew up at MOPA. During high school I would take the trolly from Imperial Beach to the City College stop […]
