This was a wonderful day in Los Angeles surrounded by a newly joined glee filled family and two beautiful women so in love it was contagious. Thanks to the happy brides, their families, and their lovely/talented kiddos for having me along for the joy fest.
Here are some photos of the energetic and eccentric band, CocoRosie. These sisters stole my heart a few months ago after a friend highly recommended their interesting "freak folk" sound. After a tasty and surreal show at the Belly Up, I'm totally hooked. Bianca (Coco) and Sierra (Rosie) are with the talented people at Sub Pop Records, who obviously know how to find incredible artists (The Postal Service, Dum Dum Girls, Fleet Foxes, The Shins!!) I took these for NBC’s music blog, SoundDiego! Checkout the full gallery here --->(NBC SoundDiego)
Here are a few of my favorites...
This couple makes me smile. Erin sends me photos of cute puppies while I am working late. Dom and I nerd out over great light, cameras, and how awesome Erin is. Hope you enjoy these people…I sure do! Checkout the medium format film images from this day too!
Congrats Erin and Dom…and thanks so much for being my friends.
Here are a few photos from my Mamiya, which is a highly addicting medium format film camera that tempts me to put down my digital cameras completely. The digital images will be up soon from this sweet and small wedding on the cliffs. I am so thankful for these people.

Here’s a few of their digital photos that I posted last week…SO much color! (Erin+Dom | a few frames)
Almost two years ago I photographed Natalie and Josh's wedding and had so much fun with them and their families. A few weeks ago, I got to take photos of their nephew's first birthday party and see some of the family again! It was the shared party of two charming little boys Carson+Braxton. Enjoy!
Beautiful Natalie below...

Mamiya photo of Taryn...Carson's quiet, but very photogenic big sister. I like the concentration on her face while playing in the sand.

I have very exciting news! San Diego friends-- make sure to set your DVR's this Saturday night to see some photos I took for NBC San Diego's new late night music show, SoundDiego! It airs after Saturday Night Live every week, and my photos are in the intro! For my non San Diego friends--here are a few of the images! This was such a fun project!
These are from a recent roll out of my new Mamiya 645-a delish medium format film camera! Thanks so much to the Soderstrom family (who makes ridiculously cute babies and grandbabies) for spending the morning with me! =)
Here is a link to the digital images! =)
This couple is having a lovely wedding at the Marston House this year…I can’t wait! Jess+Gary met at another wedding I was photographing a few years back, (Jay and Sara’s wedding) and have been together ever since…so adorable! At this engagement shoot, I got stung by stinging nettle all up my arm, and a super cool mutant ant colony discovered and explored the entire surface of my left foot- eek!! I was so glad to have such good friends there to watch me embarrass the heck out of myself, scream my head off, and almost get carried away by giant ants. Such a fun adventure! =)
Thanks for picking me Jess+Gary!!
