A couple weeks ago I had a blast photographing my lovely friend Emina and her beautiful family. She and her husband Bret have the most charming and lovable offspring: Adriana, Tristan, and Jagger. It was so fun I didn’t want to leave! Jagger even drew me a picture that is now on my fridge. Here are some highlights from our shoot…

October 29, 2013 Emina and Bret’s Family Portraits…Sherman Oaks, California
October 27, 2013 Lindsey & Brant, Married in Santa Ynez
At one of the most majestic wedding venues I have ever seen, Lindsey married Brant over Labor Day weekend this year. Their wedding took place at Sogno del Fiore in Santa Ynez, California. Everything and everyone reflected all the love between the couple, as you’ll see in the images. Renae’s Bouquet was responsible for the beautiful flowers, Trattoria Grappolo took care of the scrumptious catering, and Enjoy Cupcakes topped it off with a super sweet dessert table. The day after the wedding, Lindsey and I also took some awesome Trash the Dress pictures. Congrats to a wonderful, beautiful, admirable couple!
October 15, 2013 Margarita Kallas
Since most people (myself included) have no idea what to do when they get their pictures taken, it’s always fun for me to photograph a professional model — someone with lots of experience who knows what they’re doing when they step in front of a camera. Margarita, a Latvian native who has been modeling for almost 10 years, is definitely one of those people. She is super fun to work with, and we both let our creative sides go wild. In addition to modeling, she has acting experience in both commercials and on TV shows, appearing in commercials for Chevy, Axe, JCPenney, Clean & Clear, McDonalds, AT&T, and Moto X to name a few. She also landed a role as a model for an episode of New Girl on FOX. Above all, Margarita is a fun, carefree, and warm-hearted person, with a lot to offer this world. The last time I photographed her was about a year ago on her wedding day, and I’m grateful we got to work together again.
October 8, 2013 JESwear Designs Swimwear | Los Angeles
In September I photographed two beautiful souls who modeled suits for the elegant JESwear swimsuit line. JESwear Designs is one of the leading producers of ladies swimwear in Trinidad & Tobago, owned and managed by Jillian Salandy. Both models were incredibly dynamic and animated to work with. Lily J Molina (below left) is a dancer/choreographer and was extremely charismatic in front of the camera. Nika Williams (below right) is a model, actor and producer with a strong personality. With a great deal of experience, she knew how to work it in front of the lens. They both rocked it, and we all had a fun time making JESwear swimsuits look their finest. Not to mention our shoot took place in the Hollywood Hills with an infinity pool and a phenomenal view of the Santa Monica Mountains, Hollywood sign and all. Makeup by: Joseph Adivari.
