You + Me + The Big Blue Sea: Venice Beach Destination Wedding

  Matt & Amber wanted to do a small and meaningful ceremony in a rented beach house along Venice Beach before they moved to Texas to start their new lives. Favorites of the day: Her lovely number was designed in downtown Los Angeles slightly after Beyonce's similar dress and same designer! The simplicity about everything Bubbles after their[...]

Dancers + Sea Lions + Puppies: BW Film Photography: Santa Cruz & San Francisco

My first time visiting the Santa Cruz Pier! We had a little stop in the city heading back down from shooting in the Bay. The history is really alive on the boardwalk. It's such a fun environment with lots to experience and cute puppies! Finished my black and white roll on the sights.  My favorite was the salsa dancing along the boardwalk entrance. They were so [...]

We tried to [...]

We had an unusual free Saturday in August and made our way into the city to explore and take some pictures. What a place! We had been there a few times here and there, mainly for filming or shopping. It was so nice to[...]

Film Snapshots: Echo Park, Arboretum & Brentwood in Black and White

Our first roll of 35mm film on our AE-1 Program Camera from Canon. They sat in the refrigerator all summer while we were traveling and the excitement to get them finally developed was beyond me. I love the tones and shadows in the images. We played in a few different areas around Los Angeles when we were shooting. Some are from The Los Angeles Arboretum, which is qui[...]
