Alex and Arbi chose Matador State Beach for their Trash the Dress session. It was a hot, windy day but the water was perfect. Alex climbed up on the rock and held out her hand, inviting Arbi to follow. The two stood on the rock looking out at the ocean, forgetting the dozens of beach goers behind them. After a few moments they looked at each other, I snapped this photo and they slipped away into the water.
This picture was taken in one of the most gorgeous vineyards in Livermore, CA. Shaun & Ashley are one of the most fun and outgoing couple's to capture. They both share their love for wine so having a picnic date surrounded by the vineyard was just the perfect way of ending the evening with a beautiful sunset view.
This photo was taken on one of the windiest days of the year. The bride embraced it and once she gave her hair over to the wind - that’s when the magic happened. I love this photo because it goes to show how weather can make or break a wedding day - all depends on if you fight it or embrace it. EYE Photography - Edmonton, Alberta.
I was lucky enough to be invited to photograph a catholic wedding in one of the most important monuments in Lisbon, Mosteiro dos Jerónimos. The light on the inside is just amazing and this angle, by witch we can see distinctive characteristics of its architecture, aside family and friends in such an important day, was a mandatory choice. My special thanks to Sofia & Jason, our bride and groom, for this beautiful moment of their special day.
Danielle and Michael fell in love in Memphis and wanted to capture their love there. Danielle is one of my dearest friends and when she asked me to take their engagement photos I, of course, agreed! The few days prior to my arrival in Memphis, the city had received record snowfall, something that never happens there! With just a few snow piles left, after an afternoon of shooting in the city, we headed to historic Beale Street. I asked them to dance in the middle of the street, they did and this was the last frame of the day! This is Memphis for Danielle and Michael in one photo and this is what love is all about to me!
This is Melissa + Dane recently married on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii. We were out shooting bridal portraits when a storm hit, as our driver was returning to the venue I noticed this massive swing hanging off a tree on the coast swaying in the wind. I immediately had our driver pull over. The wind was whipping the couple around, but the couple ever so in love and excited about just becoming Mr + Mrs were lost in the moment and just embraced the elements as they were, resulting in this sweet moment.
This couple decided to get married at a gorgeous area called Mabel Lake in the interior of British Columbia. The small community has its own airstrip to get locals in and out of this secluded location. This River fed the beautiful lake which was the backdrop of their ceremony. Such a magical day and relaxed couple. I can see why they chose this spot to start their life together!
This was a high risk/reward photo opportunity. Being a second shooter at this wedding you never know what kind of behind the scenes photos you'll take. This was taken on a chilly day before the first snowfall at the base of Mount Yamnuska in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The bride nearly froze to get this photo as she snuck a kiss from her new hubby. I just thank the heavens the boat didn't sink and they made it to shore!!
This was one of my more difficult images to create because it required my couple to climb over slippery river rock formations and though spider webs to get to the perfect location where the sun was setting. However once in the right position, I asked them to enjoy the moment together and this is the result.
I thought it fitting to send though an image with a bit of Christmas spirit for the December collection. I was asked to shoot a short marriage ceremony at the registry office and on the way there we walked past an elevator lobby where the sun had come in at the perfect angle to light up the room. On our way back after the ceremony I couldn't resist and we popped in to create this image.
