Every now and then I have the opportunity to work with an absolutely ideal couple. Matt and Nicole are just that. These two love each other and enjoy life more than my words can say. When I finally met them face to face I was thrilled to find out how much fun and how easy to photograph they were. The entire shoot truly felt like I was just hanging out with long time friends. We began in downtown Santa Monica, spent some time running around the streets,and finally ended at the Pier…it was great, and I loved it!
I can’t wait for their wedding, which I will photograph in August.

I recently photographed an engagement shoot at an awesome location in Portland, the Kennedy School. It’s notorious for being very low lit and orange-ish lighting but we took full advantage of it.
I love the realism of natural light and the contrast of shades of white and black, I love photography and film scene, the story with images that convey emotion and authenticity; Here are some of my black and white image from recent in the last few weddings last year.
These images represent my work and my wedding photojournalism
