Between the usual workload that a wedding season yields and producing all the content for the book with Sara, this has certainly been the busiest year of my life. I guarantee you I met and worked with some of the kindest people on this planet in the past 12 months, and I feel like I've learned more about weddings, people, photography, and myself in that time than in any other season of my life. This is truly a ridiculous life we live. I can not wait to see what we get up to in 2012.

Huge thanks to:

My clients for inviting me along to witness your stories, trusting me and showing me a good time. Without you, things would suck. My Brotographers. You guys are the best e-office mates ever. I'm much obliged for your advice and inspiration. And especially to Sara. Your constant love, encouragement and trust are appreciated beyond what I can tell you. Plus you're a total babe.

ROB & NELLY . IN COLOR

san juan capistrano engagement I'm processing a collection of images for Rob & Nelly's guestbook for their wedding coming up in a few weeks at Calamigos Ranch, and I came across this image. I included a similar frame in a blog entry a little while back, but today I was kinda feeling the color. It's pretty interesting what you can end up with when you crank the lower end of the histogram back to compensate for that hazy, hard backlight on the 5D/45ts combo. I likeded it.

JEN & JONAH . SJC . DP

Shooting fellow photographers always ups the pressure a little bit for me, but the sessions always turn out so, so fun. Thanks Jen and Jonah, you guys are rad, come back soon.

Portfolio is Live

.So, I've gone and done it. It took all too long in a number of different ways, but I've just published a few portfolio galleries. You'll find a collection of some of my favorite images from over the last year or two. Now that the ball is finally rolling, I'm hoping to keep things updated over there somewhat frequently, so feel free to check back in every once in a while.

Thanks for looking.
