Funny, a few blogs back I was just describing how much I love music, especially live, then gave a link to a David Cook song from his show in Hollywood recently.  I seriously couldn’t believe I was allowed into The Taste of Newport with my giant camera and beefy 300mm lens… but it was worth […]

Michelle and Tim- Engagement Sesh. Fave spot, fave couple!

I wish I could blog each and every shoot I do… this one isn’t so much about the extravagant locale (it’s actually my favorite beach which I call “the office”)  but more about the bride.  I have known Michelle’s family for about 8 years.  I originally met the Siegers back when I was in my […]

My Work on Getting Married TV!!!

Lots of great things brewing… First off, I am so excited to be a part of a super fun radio giveaway, like an “I Do ReDo” but for radio.  Yes I will be donating an entire wedding photo package but the wedding will be in November on a Friday so it shouldn’t be conflictive.  Plus […]
