  • What to Wear for Your Engagement Session

  • I'm excited to welcome my friend Pei, who's guest blogging with us today. Pei is a freelance costume and production designer in Los Angeles, and she recently launched her own lifestyle blog, Have Patience. I love Pei's ability to combine casual clothing with elegance, and I thought she would be th[...]
  • Copenhagen, Denmark | International Travel Photography

  • We were certainly greeted by the cold Nordic air once we arrived in Denmark. But with its cutely colored houses lined up along the water, Copenhagen certainly had more than enough charm to make up for the weather. It was probably my favorite city of the three we visited on our Europe trip. Our fi[...]
  • Noma | Copenhagen, Denmark

  • We were initially a bit confused as we wandered along the row of identical looking warehouses. Jesse spotted a chef coming out of a building nearby asked if he knew where Noma was, to which the chef quickly responded, "No." (Awkward pause, as we stood there looking lost.) "Just kidding, I work there[...]
  • San Sebastian, Spain | International Travel Photography

  • The air was crisp, the temperature oscillating between a generous warmth in the sun and a slight chill in the shade. I was easily charmed by San Sebastian with its clear-green waters arranged in a U-shaped sound and its historic town nearby.  We started walking from our airbnb apartment to the east [...]

Our destination was Arzak, a famous family-run restaurant owned by Juan-Mari Arzak and his daughter Elena. Arzak has three Michelin stars and has gain[...]

Soon, we would be following our guide Pablo, navigating the narrow, serpentine alleys of the old city, slowing to a crawl to avoid the ped[...]
  • Jenny & Kevin | Third Anniversary Album

  • Jenny and Kevin and I have an annual tradition of documenting their love story and creating a new album to chronicle their lives together. This year was their third anniversary, and so we photographed them in their first home together-- a home which they've now sold. We created these unique chartreu[...]
  • Julie & Jeremy | Naval Blue Leather Wedding Album

  • The naval leather album looks absolutely perfect against these rich wood tones. Julie and Jeremy selected a 10x10" album with their names and wedding date debossed on the cover. The albums are professionally crafted with these thick storyboard pages and thin center gutters that allow for photos t[...]
  • Anne & Kyle | Mosstone Leather Heirloom Wedding Album

  • I love the understated gray of this mosstone leather. It's a beautiful neutral backdrop for Anne and Kyle's elegant wedding. They selected a medium 10x10" album for themselves, as well as three 5x5" mini books to gift to their parents, and of course they had their names debossed onto the cover-- my [...]
