Ahhh, I love this job… Second picture is my personal favorite with the perfect expression!

Aaron and Tamara have both been my friends for years.  I worked with Aaron before in the same Tech Department, and now am helping him buy a camera and some lenses. (Go Nikon!) I met Tamara with a few other friends way back when, and have always thought her to be a great sister; funny, caring, and hardworking.

Together, oh my goodness, they produce some of the biggest smiles I have ever seen and I was glad to capture a couple (hundred) good ones on our engagement shoot last week.   Read more

Here are some of my favorites from our rainy day engagement session indoors.  Near the end of the set, the rain stopped outside and we went out onto the porch for some final shots. Read more

As long as there's love, there will be great pictures. Or um,... at least, where there's love, and a decent photographer.

Tito & Samady are Engaged! (and Nikon D7000 = ISO Awesomeness)

Tito and Samady are engaged! Shot with the new Nikon D7000. I'm continually blown away with the ISOs that I can get away with on the D7000 body, besting the ISO noise performance of my pro-body D300s.

Shut Up and Shoot

I get a little annoyed about forum-photographers who spend more time posting in an online forum, identifying the imperfections of their cameras and lenses, than actually going out and shooting something meaningful. But whose photography job demands the level of perfection that you're asking for? Let's consider the facts...

Jackie and Luis are some new friends of mine that opted for an engagement session in the snow!  We had great fun, though I wish we had time to make a snow man.  But three’s a crowd!  Read more

For a good variety of solid color 'backdrops,' all you really need is a nice wall and Adobe Lightroom. How do we do it? It's simpler than you might think! A new background is one adjustment brush away.
