Inside an artist’s chest there beats two hearts. One is weak and ugly. It is necessary, the pessimist, the one who critiques, talks finances, and picks out all the little details that aren’t correct. The other one is colorful, vibrant, relishes the colors of the sunset, and imagines up the most beautiful creations. It never thinks about something as trivial as money or food. Those things just don’t matter compared to the soul-filling joy of CREATING.

When other souls bump into the soul of an artist, they nourish one heart or the other. ESPECIALLY humans the artist loves deeply. This past weekend, I got to photograph the simple uniting of two beautiful souls who nourish the creative heart in each other.

Gabrielle and Travis had a simple ceremony at the Beverly Hills Courthouse. Afterwards, we wandered the grounds, explored a garden, and took some beautiful photos. Then they had a small reception with their closest friends at their favorite restaurant. It was so beautifully simple and low-stress.

Kat is such a beautiful person, inside and out. I loved this opportunity to give her some new modeling headshots. We did these in a local studio with a simple, dark background.

Moses is a great guy, an aspiring drama/comic actor. I did his Los Angeles acting headshots in my neighborhood in Burbank. We used a combination of natural light paired with flashes. We used a shallow depth of field and a natural background that was easy to set up and flexible.

I’ve enjoyed watching Daniel grow as an actor. Even as I’ve grown as a portrait and headshot photographer, I’ve seen him grow from a kid to disciplined young adult. Recently he’s gotten into very good shape and seems so healthy. I loved the opportunity to take some acting headshots for him right before making the trip down to Los Angeles! Congratulations on your amazing shoulder muscles, Daniel!

I loved doing wedding photography for this couple. Rachel is a gorgeous person, inside and out, and Dominic is handsome. They both love each other so much, and it shows in the looks they give each other. I got to do their engagement photos at Multnomah Falls, and it was so fun to be able to do their wedding photography as well. It was also a special day because I got to photograph with my Mom, Sara, who originally inspired my love of art. The two got married at Floral Hall in Everett, Washington. The venue had a getting ready room, a beautiful ceremony/reception space, and the couple brought in a mobile bar for drinks. The commercial kitchen was a beautiful space for all of the family who came together to prepare reception food. The bride made her own cake, and everything turned out so beautifully!!

When I first met Payton and Angela, I was impressed immediately. Payton had a huge gash across the side of her face and one on her elbow to match. She had crashed on her skateboard. Awweeeessssoooommmmmeeeee. If you haven’t figured it out by now, I’m not a girly girl, even as a Los Angeles wedding photographer. I think it helps me focus on my art. And brides who are real will always be at the top of my favorites list. Payton and Joe had their first look in the rose garden at Lakeview Park in Nampa. Then, we all trooped over to the Orton home, where I got to photograph their beautiful backyard wedding.

My amazing friend, Abby Blossom, asked me to help her with this wedding earlier this summer! It was so beautiful and Abby did such a good job. I wanted to share some of my favorite shots. To see more of Abby’s work, head over to her website: AbbyBlossom.com. Nick and Jessica had their wedding at the Botanical Gardens in Boise. Although I am normally a Los Angeles wedding photographer, I travel frequently and love photographing in Idaho when I have the chance!

A couple of weekends ago I found myself driving up into the mountains and discovered a tiny ghost town. Roseberry was built in the beautiful valley near Lake Cascade. But when the railroad was built, they lost the fight for a stop, and consequently, most everyone moved on. But the town was well-maintained. And they have events there. And Brooke has dreamed of having her wedding there since she was a little girl. It was an amazing combination. Brooke is a beautiful, beautiful person, inside and out, and Chase rightly couldn’t stop looking at her. Their friends and family came together and everything turned out absolutely perfect. The photos say the rest.

I have to say, Beside Bardenay in downtown Boise is one of my favorite places to shoot wedding photos. The light is tricky, but as a Los Angeles wedding photographer, I’m used to dealing with difficult light, and when it’s done well, it can yield extremely interesting photos. Jeff and Taylor are an amazing couple. They met working at a movie theater, years ago, and have that cute mix of friendship and romance. Throughout the day, Jeff kept looking over at Taylor, and telling everyone how hot she looked.
