Okay wedding photographers of the female variety, this post is for you. How many times have you discussed with other photographer friends, "what do you wear to shoot in?" This conversation is so prevalent amongst our ranks for good reason. We want to look professional and polished and appropriately dressed for a wedding, but we also need to be comfortable and able to move around with ease without being restricted by our clothing. I like to shoot in a dress or skirt, that is just my personal preference. But along with that choice comes the inevitable problem, what shoes do I wear? Well I do believe that I have stumbled across the perfect pair of wedding shoes. They are called the Jupiter by Softwalk. Black leather Mary Janes with rubber soles and eggcrate footbeds. They literally (that's for you SB) feel like walking on clouds. I've never put on a

With Mother's Day looming in the not-so-distant future (May 13th to be exact), now is the time to think about how to make all of the moms in your life feel special. In celebration of Mother's Day, we are offering a limited number of gift certificates for a portrait session at 50% off.

Jana & Jordan are friends of two of my recent wedding clients and apparently they are all big fans of Palm Springs...because that's exactly where all of their weddings have taken place/ will take place. Luckily I am also a huge fan of Palm Springs and anything and everything mid-century modern. So I am really looking forward to this wedding which is to be hosted at The Viceroy which is just unbelievably cool...just like Jana & Jordan. I recently shot their engagement session in Malibu...and here are a few highlights.

Hilary & Harvey were some of my first wedding clients to come and see me at the new studio. I'm still putting some finishing touches on the place but very soon I will be sharing it with the world. But these two were down in Socal from their home in Oregon for some wedding planning so we decided to shoot their engagement session in and around Studio City...the place I call home. Stacy Sarkisian came over and did just a gorgeous job with Hilary's makeup. Stacy, whom my phone affectionately calls "Stacy Eyebrows" is also a client and the genius who keeps me looking like a normal human with two eyebrows that are distinctly separate and well-shaped. Anyway, Hilary & Harvey are just the sweetest and cutest couple. Hilary has this gorgeous smile that even she can't escape and Harvey, oh my can the man dress! This couple has such

Today I bring you Kim & David, a truly lovely couple planning a September wedding on Nantucket. So excited to shoot another wedding in New England and especially with the always incredible Jen Stiebel of SoCo Events!
