Before and After for the Pala Bridal show

I’ve spent the last few days in a fury of preparing prints, scheduling rental equipment, and general craziness getting ready for the upcoming Pala Casino Bridal expo on Sunday. As I was selecting prints, I came across an image from a wedding I did a few years back here in San Diego for Cameryn & John (above left). It had a great view of the foothills around the Ramona area, but the sky was completely blown out. I thought that it would be a great image if I could do something about the sky. That’s when I remembered that I […]

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 […]

A Weird, Watery Weekend!

I’m not even sure I can present a story that fully illustrates the crazy roller coaster of a weekend I had, so I’ll keep it to a simple narrative. Friday: I was very excited to start heading out to Krause Springs, where myself and some fellow photographers from an online photo group were going to get together and do a TTD (Trash The Dress) session with a couple models for portfolio type work, and just to have fun and meet each other. On my way out for a pre-trip errand, I noticed that I missed a call. I check the […]

Rain, A Blessing For Weddings

The last time it rained while I was at a wedding, I was in a little town called San Juanico in Baja California on a surf trip. San Juanico is just a dusty, and dirty fishing village about 800 miles south of San Diego, and is renowned for it’s very long right hand point break. The break is called Scorpion Bay and has attracted a small American ex-pat community. On this particular trip I was honored to be invited to attend the wedding reception for one of the surfer ex-pats and a local girl roughly half his age. The day […]

My Bestfriend is Getting Married

“Back in the day” as they say, is when I met Chris Elders. We met each other while working in a live/work loft on 12th and J Street in San Diego. He and his sister Tanya were running Ignite My Site, a small web development firm in the front and living in the back at the time. When I moved into one of the open units, and we became neighbors, a strong friendship began to form. He introduced me to the magic of “House” music, and Landmark Education. And I like to think that I helped him strengthen his eye […]

Grace Ormonde Submission and the Odds of Getting Published

I just sent off a beautiful wedding I shot in October off to the always sexy and glamorous Grace Ormonde – Wedding Style for review and possible acceptance for the Fall issue!!! I found out the submission requirements a couple weeks ago and have been frantically preparing it for the March 1st deadline.
