Four Seasons Biltmore Santa Barbara Wedding

We photographed this wedding at the Four Seasons Biltmore in Santa Barbara. First of all, I love Santa Barbara. Anytime I have a chance to get up there for photography or otherwise, I jump at the chance.

The Four Seasons is a fantastic venue. The little bungalows where Brides and grooms get ready offer plenty of natural light and with the venue being so close to the beach, we can get both shots of greenery as well as beach photos. Read More »

infrared photography for weddings

Infrared Wedding Photography

Infrared photography refers to photographing the light spectrum closest to our normal ability to see, yet just beyond the visible light spectrum and our eye’s capabilities. When used by photographers this isn’t actually same as what the military uses. What they use is much further along the infrared spectrum then what we use for photography. We actually only use the beginning part of the spectrum called “near Infrared”. Aside from landscape photography, Infrared wedding photography is perhaps the most popular use of the medium because of the wondrous effects it produces. Read More »

Here is a little photography gallery for Jim and Dolly’s steampunk wedding. I personally love the Dr Who wedding elements as well. Jim had the rings and pendant inscribed in gallifreyan. That’s the circle designs you see.. yes it’s actually a language (for you non- whovians) I believe it said Dolly and Jim forever. Read More »

Adamson House Wedding, Malibu

The Adamson house in Malibu is a delightful place to photograph a wedding. The entire property is a perfectly restored historic property with fantastic view of the ocean and a beautiful garden setting for the ceremony.

The wedding cake was a gift from the brides parents as an inside joke on the groom. Ask me about it sometime, and I’ll tell you the story. Read More »

Our location for today’s wedding was up in Cambria, CA at a rustic, sea-side summer camp called Camp Ocean Pines. This wedding was one of my favorites. So much so that Kelly and I modeled our own wedding after this very one. The couple (Senta and Ernest) rented out the entire … Read More »

Stone manor wedding

Stone Manor Wedding

I love Stone Manor. This venue is quaint, elegant, well-lit and has a spectacular view from high above the Malibu hills. I say “well-lit” because stone manor lighting is what the venue comes up on the GPS systems. They have a little walkway through the wooded areas with lighted paths … Read More »
