A Year In Adventures, 2013

Film was my first love. Although I live and work in a digital world my heart still yearns for it. It gives me satisfaction in the present moment and its an escape from the frenetic-hyper life I live in. I love the physicality of it, loading it, hearing the shutter. But mostly my love for film is an intangible one. It’s the special way that the world looks when captured on film. There is a quality to the light, the colors, the grain, the blur that varies from one film type to another. Where my digital cameras are a rational choice and decision, my film camera is an emotional one. And it will always be that way. Honest, fickle, and rewarding.

These photographs were taken on various trips last year. I feel so lucky that I get to travel. That I have a wonderful family to travel with. What else can one ask for. Hope you enjoy!

Coral + Andrew } Marin Art & Garden Center, Ross, California

Another beautiful, heartfelt wedding here. I love the Marin art and garden center. It's spacious, filled with flowers and you can get lost in all the little pocket gardens. Basically, the backdrop is already there. Add some great food, family & friends, well, you've got yourself a damn good celebration.
Congratulations Coral & Andy!

Dorian + Jared } Mission Bowl, San Francisco

I can honestly say I have photographed weddings in pretty much every type of venue under the sun; rustic barn, gothic cathedral, french chateau, hillside in Sicily, beaches of Mexico, a campsite under the redwoods... the list goes on & on.  However, only until just recently, can I add *bowling alley* to that list. Yep. Certainly not just any bowling alley mind you. This one is extra special. In the heart of hipster-ville-mission is a 6 lane bowl that serves up some of the tastiest cocktails and food around. Jared and Dorian knew exactly what they were doing. They planned one of the funnest weddings I've been to in awhile. They danced, they bowled, they exchanged vows, they cocktail-partied all night long. In short, it was an absolute blast. You guys are the best.
