Brooke and Shea- Martha Stewart Weddings

It was an absolute thrill to shoot Brooke and Shea's wedding for Martha Stewart Weddings last March. The icing on the cake was having one of my images chosen for the cover. Dream scenario. Brooke and Shea's wedding was featured in their Real Weddings Special Issue Fall 2014. Big Aloha to the team at MSW for being so great to work with and big thanks to my amazing friend, Kris for assisting and helping to keep things running smoothly. Excited to finally share some of my favorites from their day.

Caitlin + Loren's - Haiku Mill Wedding, Maui HI / Published Martha Stewart!

It was pure joy shooting this wedding in the first place and then when Martha Stewart Weddings wanted to feature it, I died and went to wedding photography heaven.

It was featured in their 2013 Special Fall Issue. You can also see more images and read some details on their destination wedding here.

After announcing my family's move to the island of Kauai this coming August, I thought the timing was finally right to share some of my favorite images from this island wedding.

Big thanks to the Haiku Mill for providing such a breathtaking venue. And of course lots of love to Caitlin and Loren for trusting me to document such a beautiful day.

Getting married? I would love to photograph it. Starting August 2014 I will still be shooting in California and beyond but will be Hawaii local. Email me at or call 310-251-9159

Published in Wayfare Magazine!

Remember when we took that roadtrip in New Zealand? Wayfare Magazine shared our adventure in their summer issue! You can see the goodness here.

I shot all of the images shared in the issue with my contax 645 and kodax ektar 100.

I have been dying to share these images with you and now I finally can. Look for more New Zealand posts coming up.

Big thanks to Wayfare Magazine for sharing my images and words. I was so in love with their pilot is such an honor to have worked with them and be featured along side so many other talented photographers and writers.

Featured on Ohdeedoh Today!

Ohdeedoh (of Apartment Therapy) asked how the heck we made our atomic mobile in Nova's nursary. I borrowed the idea from Old Brand New after not finding a pre-made one I could just buy that would match the aesthetic of our home. This idea was perfect, cheap and took about 5mins to assemble.

Go here to see a close up and details of how I made it.

Thanks Katie for wanting to share with your readers!

I interrupt baby mania to actually talk business. Imagine that!

Olive Magazine/Philippines contacted me about wanting to use some of the images I shot of French Laundry for their February Issue. I was thrilled. Not only did I get to relive all of the delicious moments while going through the shots but one of my favorite subjects was given due attention..FOOD.

I haven't really talked about this..but I have a 2nd website that is waiting patiently to go live featuring more of my commercial and editorial work. This will be a nice addition to the site. Stay tuned for the launch.

A huge foodie thank you to Olive Magazine for featuring my work.
