Studio Shoot | Veronica

I had the opportunity to do a studio shoot with Veronica, a friend of mine from Colorado. It was her first shoot, so she did not completely know what to expect. After some hair and makeup, we shot her in her first look. She settled in pretty quickly and started to have some fun in front of the camera. By the end of the session, she was a pro. Thank you, “Miss Bolivia”! You’re a natural!

Shoots | And Now For Something Completely Different…

For those who know my photography, this shoot is something out of the ordinary for me… girls in bikinis.

I would like to thank Ireland Reid, owner of Rich Bitch Bikinis. She not only kindly sponsored the shoot with fantastic bikinis from her company, but she also modeled. Beautiful model Sasha contributed her talents to the shoot as well. Additional thanks go to MUA Erin Tatum for her always generous contribution of time, talent, and materials. The location was kindly provided courtesy of Linda Christie.

Enjoy!

Engagement Shoot | Olivia + Mike | Balboa Park

I have the privilege of shooting Olivia and Mike’s upcoming wedding and had the opportunity to do an engagement shoot with them recently at Balboa Park. I actually attended the party where they couple initially met a couple of years ago, but I didn’t meet Mike until later. The happy couple will be tying the knot at a destination wedding at the Riviera Maya, Mexico. Bon voyage, lovebirds! See you soon!

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.
