  • Art Around the Bay | Spring in San Francisco

  • Art-filled adventures around the Bay from this April and May! First off, Pace Gallery teamLab in Menlo Park. The main exhibits are very instagrammable. They're mostly different light installations that run on infinitely variable algorithms, so they are supposed to factor in human interactio[...]
  • Tiffany's Lobster Feast Birthday Party

  • Happy very belated birthday, Tiffany! Back in April, my good friend Tiffany hosted a lobster feast for her birthday. The lobsters were flown in from Maine; Tiffany decorated with a loose nautical theme and her own calligraphy; we had the mesmerizing Oceans from Disney playing in the background; and [...]
  • An Art-Filled Weekend in Washington DC

  • Ahh, springtime in DC. I made it down for peak cherry blossom season a couple years ago as I was finishing up my Pointe of View series. This time, we drove down from Philadelphia the first weekend of April, missing the blooms by a week. But we still had a great weekend down in DC, headlined by the a[...]
  • Melbourne, Australia

  • We've finally made it to the final stop of our whirlwind tour through New Zealand and Australia: Melbourne. Our stay was only two days long, but we all fell for the city in that short time. Melbourne and Sydney have a running rivalry much like LA vs. New York or maybe LA vs. SF. (And Melbourne would[...]
  • Serena & Cliff | Silver Moon Wedding Album

  • We designed a beautiful set of albums for Serena and Cliff, and for the first time, I filmed a short little video of me flipping through the book so you can see it in action! And you can also take a closer look at some of my favorite spreads in the images below. The main album is the medium 10x10[...]
  • Bondi Beach & Sydney, Australia

  • We continue the series with more explorations around Sydney, including a quick visit to the coastal shores of Bondi Beach. We start off again in Surry Hills, the neighborhood where we stayed for our three-night visit. Our airbnb was cute, but the windows did not have screens and I got eaten al[...]
  • Sydney, Australia

  • After a whole lot of anticipation, we finally made our way to Sydney, Australia. There was quite a bit of hype for the city, considering our friend did fall in love with it, quit his job, and move across the world to live there. And then he met a girl, fell in love with her, and was getting married![...]
  • Portrait Party | June, 2016

  • I'm thrilled to share the second in my series of Portrait Parties. The idea is very simple: I gather a small group of people, we throw ourselves a little party, and I take portraits of everyone. Each participant contributes to the party too, and we all get to connect with each other without the pres[...]
  • Hamilton Island, Australia

  • We bid our early morning farewells to New Zealand and headed to Australia; specifically, Hamilton Island, a small resort island near the Great Barrier Reef. It's the kind of place where golf carts are the mode of transportation and housing comes mostly in the form of timeshares and hotels. On our ag[...]
  • Ashley & Chad | Naval Leather Wedding Album

  • Heirloom wedding albums are the perfect way to commemorate your wedding story for generations to come. I love when couples opt to create a whole suite of albums to share with parents and loved ones as well. For Ashley and Chad, we created one medium (10") album; one small (8") album; and two mini (6[...]
  • Hobbiton | North Island, New Zealand

  • Hobbiton! On our last day in New Zealand, we made the three hour drive from Auckland down to Hobbiton, the famed set of The Lord of the Rings. We went for the full Hobbiton feast, with tours before and after sunset.   The set is actually on a sheep farm. When the location scouts initially inquired[...]
  • Auckland & Waitomo | North Island, New Zealand

  • We continue my journey through New Zealand as Jon, Pei, and I flew from Queenstown in South Island back up to Auckland in North Island and were joined by Young, Jessica, Karen, and Sam. It was a drastic change of scenery; despite being surrounded by plenty of nature, Auckland itself is very much a c[...]
