Family Fun in Big Bear

A Message to Finn: Dear Finn, I met your Mom right around the time she bumped into your Dad at a concert. So like you, I’ve never known them to be apart. As their love evolved I was then asked to photograph their wedding day. You know the big book full of pictures with your […]

Family Matters, A Very Special One

I don’t usually post the same location for a blog back to back, you’ll see I just used this “enchanted forest” recently however this one turned out so different that it’s worth sharing as well. Of course the content, styling, location, right time of day, props, they all come together to make a photograph that […]

Erin and Michael’s Nature-filled Engagement in Big Bear

How can I possibly top Michael’s proposal to Erin on a peak in Machu Picchu? I had my work cut out for me… Erin and I immediately connected when we first sat down together because her relationship is so parallel to mine. We both met our other half many years ago, separated seemingly to move […]

Fabiano Family Fun

With a friendly voice and a recommendation from a previous client I immediately returned his call to learn more. As he began to describe the wedding plans so far, he stated the date was […]

Kelly + Dalton’s Northern California Engagement Shoot

Dalton is a total stand up kind of guy. Migrating from the military to follow his Father’s footsteps into the police academy kind of says it all. Kelly is a sweet, bubbly realtor in the Green Valley area. And she just so happens to be my cousin which is bragging rights for me because she’s […]

Big Bear Summer Series

I’ve been so busy with shooting and editing weddings the past few weeks that I’ve neglected the images I’ve been capturing throughout the summertime in Big Bear.  As you know, it’s my happy place therefore I’ve been escaping to it as much as possible around the nuptial nuttiness that is April through October.  Around my […]
