I get it. You like that photo you had taken years ago. But guess what? Unless you work exclusively via email and phone calls, your clients are going to see what you look like now and realize you're not 15-years-ago you anymore.Read More
Live music is always a lot of fun to shoot. It can be energetic, engrossing, unpredictable, and exhilerating. There’s nothing like watching someone really pour every ounce of energy into their art and performance, and trying to capture that.
The last night of my 30s, I jumped at the chance to head down to Hollywood and photograph my friend Kaybe as she and her band played a stellar set at The Study, a really cool library-themed venue.
Every opportunity to document someone's wedding is special. To know they trust you to be part of the day and capture its moments is a heartwarming thing. And when it's someone you've known for years, and you can share in their joy — well, that's something extra special.
The Eastern Sierras are one of my absolute favorite places. It does the mind, body, and soul to escape now and then to escape, if only for a weekend, to wild, rugged, and beautiful corners of the world. There's nothing like driving through the black of night, sleeping under the stars in the bed of a pickup truck, and in the cold chill of an October morning sipping hot, black coffee and watching as the sun paints the mountains.
It has taken me more than a year to get to this post. In July 2014, my wife and I took a bit of a belated honeymoon, spending more than a week adventuring in Alberta and British Columbia. We quickly fell deeply in love with Canada. The rugged beauty of its landscape. Its friendly people. Its gorgeous late-night sunsets. And the food. Oh, the food.
There is something inspiring and invigorating about going new, unseen places and seeing new beauty, sharing time with the one you love and coming home recharged and refreshed.
So settle in, there's a few photos ahead.
As a photographer, I deeply value every opportunity someone gives me to document their lives at a certain point. It is deeply meaningful to be entrusted with creating images that will stand the test of time.
Let me tell you, this engagement session was particularly exciting to shoot. I've known Pete for nearly 15 years, when we were in college together. Before I got married, we lived together in a house and shared many laughs and conversations. Pete is a hilarious dude, but he is also a focused, responsible, godly man and is going to make a great husband. I don't Lauren very well, but I could instantly tell that they're a great match.
