As you can probably tell from these photos, this girl was absolutely delightful! We took her graduation pictures in Boise at the Boise State University campus, where she was about to earn her degree in Education. All the best to you, Amber!

This is Vanessa and Steven. I was able to take their engagement pictures towards the beginning of November at Malibu Creek State Park in Los Angeles. Vanessa wore an amazing red dress and Steven was dapper in a crisp suit with an open collar. The entire look worked very well. They were both a little nervous but you couldn’t tell it from the photos!

This was such a beautiful wedding! William Paul and Jeraldine are such beautiful people! I loved them the moment I first heard from them. Will planned and organized most of the wedding, and he did an amazing job. From the decor to the little surprises to the venues. It was all so amazing. I loved being their Los Angeles wedding photographer!

This girl is one of the most amazing people I’ve ever met. She’s compassionate, intelligent, has an amazing eye for design and photography, and is just fun to be around. So I was very honored when she asked me to do her senior pictures. This was one of many shoots we did, for fun, as we traded the camera back and forth. Although I frequently do graduation pictures in Los Angeles, these were done back home in Idaho.

I wore a veil at my wedding. It was my mom’s, beautiful, and each of my sisters had worn it before me. But for some, the decision is more complicated. As an affordable Los Angeles wedding photographer, I’m very close to many brides on their wedding days, and I hear and see the advantages and disadvantages of a veil. So, here are a few things to think about.

Samantha and Luke have a very cute relationship. I was able to do their engagement photos up in the snow at Idaho City, and it was so much fun and some of the most gorgeous photos I’ve ever done! Sam has this an amazing amount of gorgeous blonde hair. They’ve been together for a long time, and the wedding was bound to be a gorgeous, wild party with awesome friends. And that definitely is what happened! The DJ was Soundwave Events. Chyrell, the coordinator with Sandstone, was the epic chaos wrangler, and the cakes and desserts were provided by someone I don’t know.

I love doing Christmas mini-sessions. A mini-session is basically a temporary studio where I set up in a pretty place and families/couples come to me. It’s cheaper for them, and it’s worth it for me. I love giving families and couples affordable photography, and this is one way to do it! This mini-session I set up with an amazing Idaho winery, Hell’s Canyon, last Christmas.

I loved photographing for these two. They had their wedding at Shadow Hills Event Center in Nampa, Idaho. Although I’m primarily a Los Angeles wedding photographer, I love traveling to my native state for photography. These two were a joy to work with. Herminio’s sister, Rosa, interviewed and hired me because she’s awesome and crazy and volunteered to help them with the wedding. I meet them and instantly fell in love with their vibe. The cake was by “Oh for Heaven’s Cake’s” in Nampa. Catering by a friend of the family. Shots in downtown Nampa afterwards. I used a Canon 5D Mark III with a Tamron 35mm prime lens, 50mm F1.4, and 70-200mm with a Yongnuo OCF and a videolight.

I can’t claim to be an expert. But throughout my photography career I’ve amassed a bag of tricks I use to get kids to cooperate with photos. I grew up in a large family and my mom was also a very good photographer. So I learned some from her, some from hanging with my nieces and nephews, and some from just plain old remembering what it was like to be a kid. So here’s my top advice to parents and photographers.

So this article popped up on my newsfeed, and I had a few thoughts about it. Basically, this cute couple hired a wedding photographer (unnamed) for their upcoming wedding, and when they got photos back, they were HORRIBLE. They had looked on the photographer’s instagram, and liked what they saw, but the actual product was awful. The photographer didn’t ask for a contract and they paid her $800.
