28 January 2008


so, after my last post, i alluded to the business i mixed with pleasure on a recent trip to san luis obispo. however, like they say (whoever “they” are), if you love what you do for a profession, you will never work a day in your life. i am stoked to have the opportunity to shoot beautiful people, people in love, people in the middle of their story, and this shoot was no different.

in fact, at certain points i felt under-gunned, like i was the one who should be taking the direction. but, as God had it in for me on this day, i was blessed to work with a beautiful model who felt comfortable enough to try a few things, as i made recommendations. in fact, i had such a hard time choosing, and so i decided to break this post up in two. (check back tomorrow for part dos)

and thanks to teddy for letting me experiment with a couple of his wider lenses. teddy is another rad photog, who also happens to be working with foto cabina, an uber-cool option if you are considering a photo-booth for your wedding.

here are some of the rockin cool shots we pulled off, at the start of our shoot.

gettin' all tangled in the brush...
one of my favorites.

and, make sure to check back tomorrow for the rest of the fun...

  4. 6, 7, 9, 10, and 12 are my favorites! Carlie is so pretty - it'd be difficult NOT to get a good shot! But we do know you do have photography skills, too - don't worry. ;)

  5. These are seriously off the freaking hizzook or chizzain, or whatever you want to say - you have a BEYOND stunning bride, and she makes your photography skills shine all the more - much love to you guys!!! :)

  6. Wow! You do really GREAT work! I really like that last black and white.
