I’ve been taking images of my neighbors’ children for what seems like forever already! It’s so fun to look back at their old shoots and see how much they have grown and changed in just a few short years. You can see here they have always kept me on my toes and this shoot was no exception. I love how Lucas, Owen, and Erica are so fiercely individual in their own personalities and it shows in their group images as well. Until next time!

I have been so blessed in my life with good health, wonderful friends & family, a job I love, and the ability to have fun seeing a bit of the world and generally doing what I want to do. Unfortunately, not everyone is as lucky as I have been. I’ve been involved in a couple programs throughout the years that have given me the opportunity to give back through my photography. This year, I wanted to do a little more, something special for the holiday season.
That’s why for this Holiday Season I am teaming up with my friends and fellow photographers Cindy Guessford of Cindy Guessford Photography and Mark Gardner of Mark Gardner Photography for our Make A Wish Portrait Promo!!!

I’ve been itching to try out some boudoir photography over the last couple years and I finally found a great test subject – one of my brides Brittany! She is the epitome of a client putting her absolute trust in me. And it doesn’t hurt that she has fabulous fashion taste! We finally got together to make some images and I’m quite pleased for my first go at it. I could really enjoy doing some more of these. So, ladies, if you are looking for a gift for your groom, give me a holler for some tastefully smokin’ images!
I’m so pleased to announce that I have picked a winner for the wedding photography contest! Britt + Mike with their LA wedding! This whole process has been fun for me, getting to know these couples through their entries and mood boards. The final decision was tough as I was falling in love with each one, but I picked one true to the contest parameters for sure! Now, for some yummy details!
Britt works on the show “Psych” and Mike is a Special Ed Math teacher at inner city schools. Both have a passion for what they do and have infused their passion for life into their wedding plans. They are getting married at a great indoor/outddor venue Box Eight Studios in LA. One of the things that struck me about this venue, besides the cool factor, is that it’s owned and operated by a collective of artists and the rental money goes to funding their artistic endeavors! For other wedding details – think mismatched bridesmaid dresses & groomsmen attire, lanterns, mason jars, Kogi BBQ truck, homemade beer, electric guitar, etc…. I know I’m pumped! Can’t wait for your wedding next year Britt & Mike! Oh, and check out Britt’s own bridal blog The Bowie Bride!
I’m slowly, but surely getting caught up on blog postings! Erin + Waiel were such good sports for their e-session. We must have had the shoot on one of the hottest days of summer, but we didn’t let the heat stop us from a great session. I probably looked a little worse for the wear afterwards, but luckily, I wasn’t the one being photographed. They just let me do my thing and we up for anything I threw at them. I’m sad that I won’t be photographing their wedding at Turbine Hall, but some of my pals in Circle of 8 will do a fabulous job w/o my help! I am happy to be a part of it all in this small way. Here are some of my favorites from the day.
Alyson + Shane had a wonderfully intimate ceremony at the Joseph Ambler Inn this summer. You may remember them from their Italian Market e session. Much like myself and Zach, these two have been together for forever! Though it seems like they can’t remember what life was like before they met, there was absolutely no shortage of love and emotion. Shane teared up a bit during the ceremony and Alyson made it all the way till the best man speech before cracking a tear, but it was definitely there! It was a beautiful day with some beautiful images!
So, I’m finally starting to blog some weddings from this season. This whole summer has seemed to revolve around portraits on the blog! Amy and Josh were married at the spectacular Masonic Temple in Philadelphia. I think this place is one of Philly’s best kept secrets for both weddings and architecture! The place was amazing. The ceremony was followed by a ridiculously fun reception at The Loews Hotel right around the corner in downtown Philadelphia. Amy and Josh just ooze cool, I just love ‘em! Not to mention they have fabulous taste in music! Here are some of my favs from the day…
