On July 7th, while photographing the engagement portrait session for Katherine (Kat) Schnaider and James Matti at the Huntington Library in San Marino, CA, we made a spur of the moment decision to also shoot some video to make an engagement video for them.
But, since their original photography permit (required at most places like this) was for still photography only, we had to jump [...]
On Sunday, March 4th, I was a guest on “RKR’s Talk of the Town” radio show on 101.3 KATY-FM in Temecula. I discussed some tips for selecting a wedding photographer, my own photography background, some recent changes in wedding traditions, and some interesting stories from weddings past.
Many thanks to Judy Zulfiqar of RKR Marketing for having me as a guest on the show.
Here is [...]
Courtney Campora and James Carter love their dogs. We love dogs too! So, when they gingerly asked about including their dogs in their engagement portrait session, we quickly said, “No problem!” We set up a split engagement portrait session for them on March 27th. The first half was in the morning at Glen Arbor Park in Murrieta. We’ve photographed there many times [...]
It’s engagement portrait season! On March 6, 2011, we photographed the engagement session of a beautiful couple, Kelly Keprios and Tim Jiannino, at one of our favorite locations in Laguna Beach.
Here are just some of the amazing shots from the session that Kelly and Tim selected for use in their custom Photo Guest Book that we’re designing for them. And, check out their cinematic [...]

I’ll be photographing their wedding on May 1st, 2011 at Etiwanda Gardens in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. I have photographed at the mission a couple times before, so I already had some specific spots in mind that I was looking [...]
I own both the Canon 5D Mark II and 7D. I’ve used the 5D Mark II for some small video projects in the past (mostly video’s of my son’s drumming), but when my friend (Pat Collins, drummer for the band Eclipse) hired me to do a full-scale promo video for them, how could I refuse?
I elected to use my 7D for this video, instead [...]
I had previously posted a blog entry with photos and info on the engagement portrait session that I shot for Joe Emery and Cherina Hardiman on August 29th (HERE). Well… during that session, on the spur of the moment, we decided to also film some video snippets and see what we’d get.
I didn’t have my good off-camera mic with me, so I ended up just [...]
On Wednesday, June 4th I was back at Angel Stadium for the second time in six weeks to shoot the engagement session for Kristina Lew and Chris Weist. I’ll be shooting their wedding on August 30th. They were such a fun couple to shoot. They are huge Angel’s fans and really got a kick out of being in the stadium alone. They even brought their [...]
