The Devil is in the Details

Or so it has been said.

I like to think of it in the opposite way.


I like to think that that is where a little divinity lays 








 and beauty can be found. 


SoCal Photog ShootOut - Couples & Bridal

Admittedly this is probably my favorite part of the wedding to shoot. The beuatiful bride and the new couple. There is nothing like capturing the bride or the lucky couple in the perfect pose and look. Here are some of my favorites I photographed last week:








Pictured are: Ashley Snyder, Sean Smetona and Jenn King


SoCal Photog ShootOut - Ceremony & Engagament

Last week I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to shoot in Pasadena with a great group called SoCal Photog ShootOut.   The shoot was organized by  Hannsie Trainor and Matthew Saville who both did a fantastic job putting everything together. They brought in some wonderful vendors (listed below) that made the event extra special and very worth while.

Venue: Ron Hobbs of the Romanesque Room
Wedding Coordinator: Amanda Auer of In the Now Weddings
Florist: Honey and Poppies
DJ: Marcel Gonzalez of First Choice Entertainment
Videographer: Nick Bowser of Crafthouse Productions
Stationary: Alison Howell
Rentals: Town & Country
Catering: Jay’s Catering
Venue Concierge: Mary Lallande
Bakery: Colette at Fancy That! Cupcakes
Linens: Wildflower
Styling: Michelle Cunningham
Hair/Makeup: Kacee Geoffroy & Becca
Hair/Makeup: Alisha Baijournas

I also would like to thank the rotation and lighting leaders for their direction and always keeping things running smoothly. I really enjoyed bouncing ideas of them and they were always receptive to questions.  All of us attending were also lucky to have some fantastic models who were all extremely generous, beautiful/handsom, and worked very hard. The event would have been nothing without their talents.

Models: Kacee+Erik Geoffroy, Joanna Calderon, Shane Johnson, Mike Salmon, Timothy Wilkins

Now for me the best part was meeting other photographers and getting a chance to talk about the business and fun surrounding our mutual love of photography. There is nothing like sharing experiences and ideas with fellow photographers.

 Models: Derek Frenzel & Sarah Frenzel

I'm happy to say I have many new Facebook friends now!
