Event Coverage | Eufora International North American Leadership Conference | San Diego

I was asked to help my fellow photographer Jamie Dickerson of J. Dixx Photography to cover a Eufora International event. It was the 2012 Eufora North American Leadership Conference at the beautiful Hilton San Diego Bayfront Hotel. Eufora, now one of North America’s fastest growing professional companies, has built its success by providing unique, top performance “People and Planet Friendly” products. Eufora products are exclusively sold through independent and carefully hand picked salons. Thanks for the shooting opportunity, Jamie. It’s always a pleasure working with you!

Studio Shoot | Anna

My friend Anna was in town, so what better way to show her beautiful San Diego than to take her into a windowless studio for a shoot? My original theme for her was sexy French maid. Being a fiercely independent Italian, Anna had her own ideas and took the shoot in a different direction. Somehow she channeled her “inner maid” and ended up standing on top of me. All in all an excellent shoot though!

Wedding Preview | Sheila + Hoopes | San Diego

I had the honor of shooting the wedding of Sheila and John (“Hoopes”) a couple of weeks ago. Sheila met John when she brought her Corolla in for service at Toyota where John worked. John caught Sheila’s eye. After the first service, Sheila’s car mysteriously developed more and more “problems”, causing Sheila to frequently come back to visit John. Sheila and John have been inseparable ever since.

Their wedding was a wonderful ceremony at St. Mary Magdelene near Mission Bay.  It was followed by a festive reception at the Mission Bay Hyatt where Sheila and her Converse chucks-wearing groom danced the night away.

Here are some preview photographs from their big day.
