Guest Book from Collages

Collages.net makes these fantastic guest books for wedding guests to sign on the day of their wedding. I made one for Jennifer and Woody with images from their engagement shoot in San Francisco. Coincidentally Collages had a color leather almost identical to Jennifer's invitation. I can't wait for Jennifer and Woody's wedding guests to sign it this coming weekend.

I had the pleasure of shooting Jennifer and Woody's engagement photos in San Francisco last fall and totally forgot to blog about it. I've known Jennifer for over 20 years and am thrilled she found Woody.

Langham Hotel Pasadena - Sanjeet's 30th Birthday Party



I have had the pleasure of working for Sanjeet Nijjar on numerous occassions including their incredibly fun Halloween Party in 2006. Well Sanjeet decided decided to thrown himself a very grand 30th birthday party at the Langham Hotel in Pasadena and it was a spectacular event. Every detail was thought out so well and he hired such incredible designers to work with him including Alex and Dimash of Square Root Designs, Richard Taylor of Dazian and Sheryal Rozzelle of Unique Elegance.

How I Love the dr5 Process



My neighbor at my studio, Jimi of JD Restoration, has some incredible cacti including one that blooms annually. For the last two years he has told me I better shoot the flowers quickly because they bloom and die within one day and I never believe him.

Well this year I took him at his word and shot the incredibly beautiful blooms one morning. I shot the flowers both digitally and with film that was then processed using dr5. I absolutely love this process and even though dr5 doesn't show the beautiful pink hues of the blooms they are still beautiful images. Click here to view the digital images I shot.
