Bridals in Maui

I had the great opportunity to shoot some bridal portraits on the beach in Maui two weeks ago. Something I love about the islands is a lot of the times wedding dresses are so simple and pretty...and many times they don't even wear shoes. I shot these bridals with Erin and the shoot was fantastic. We had a wonderful full moon and shot these shots on the west side of the island. We found some trees that go right into the water on the side of the road and turned it into our location for the shoot. Using my D3 and Sony video light we went to work. I was so excited when she agreed to go into the water. It was a great shoot...and no cops!

Wasatch Ragnar

Yes, we're alive.....I think this is the longest I've gone without posting a blog but that has been because of my shooting life being the busiest in my career. I was back in Maui for a week, flew a "red eye" from Maui to LAX and within 5 hours was driving up to Utah with my team for the Utah Wasatch Ragnar Race. The race was a's very tiring because you stay up for almost 48 hours straight....but it is SO much fun. I had some incredible shoots I did in Maui with brides and models that I'll post on later...but this Ragnar race was truly a riot. We have another race in three weeks in no rest for us!!! Let me know what you think!

NBA Finals

I had the amazing opportunity to attend the Lakers Celtics finals game on Tuesday where my Lakers won!!! I know they lost on Thursday and things aren't looking good but I believe they will win on Sunday and then we get to see what happens in Boston. My favorite is Kobe and I'm not a recent convert to the Lakers. My brother Ryan and I used to sleep outside in the garage when Magic and the Lakers would lose a playoff game out of protest....we actually only punished ourselves but we had to do something with our angst.

I went to the game with one of my best friends Gary and we had a great time. And for all the Boston fans out there.....just wait until next year when we have Andrew Bynum back....that would be the equivalent of you guys not having one of your "Big Three" Regardless of the outcome of the Finals, I loved the game and will never forget it!

Downtown Disney

Below are pics from a recent engagement photo shoot at Downtown Disney in Anaheim, CA. This was such a fun shoot because you're not allowed to shoot there! We kept getting chased away by the cops and security staff...and if you look at the first three shots you will see the sign that reads, "NO photography, audio, video recording." It was a great night and the couple...Morgan and Ryan went with the flow the entire evening. Thanks for making it such a great shoot!
