Cover & Fashion Editorials for Today's Bride Magazine

Always such an honor to be asked to photograph the cover & fashion editorials for Today's Bride Magazine.  Cristine and her crew are always amazing to work with.  For the cover, Tia and I hand painted the floral backdrop ourselves.  It only took 11 hours, but hey, anything for a great photo, right? LOL.... all credits are below to the awesome people who made these shoots come to life!!!  This first editorial, we nick named "dark garden".  The concept was to keep everything really simple, dark & focus on the floral designs and gorgeous jewelry.

The second fashion editorial, we nicknamed "gypsy".  We wanted to capture the spirit of the gypsy bride and her fellow.  If you have never heard this song by the Civil Wars, I highly recommend checking it out, it just sounds so Gypsy-like..... it's beautiful!!! It's called "tip of my tongue"

Dandan & Amos Engagement Session

I am so excited to shoot Dandan & Amos's wedding this fall.  I just love their names, to me they sound like they should have a movie titled after them "Dandan & Amos" YES!!!  Their engagement session was a complete adventure which ended in a trip to the emergency room!!! HOLY MOLY!!! Photoshoots with me are always some kind of adventure.... but this one.... it was a first!! Dandan and Amos, I love your photos.  You two are a gorgeous couple and I am thrilled to get to work with you on your wedding day!!!

Cover & Feature in Content Magazine!

When I was asked by Daniel Garcia of Content Magazine to do an interview for an article, I was super excited!  When he told me he planned to take a few photos of me for the article, I was a bit nervous!  Even though I photograph people everyday, being in front of the camera is not my cup of tea :0)..... alas, I knew I had to "brave up" and do it.... so, of course, I did.  Little did I know that my EYEBALLS would land the cover of the issue.... HOLY MOLY!!!! I am very gracious that Daniel shot my photos on FILM (4x5 as a matter of fact).... it's a little strange seeing yourself at newstands, etc.  But, I highly recommend checking out this magazine!  Content is a wonderful magazine that features artists in the Bay Area and I am so grateful to be featured!!!
