Ace Hotel & Swim Club - Palm Springs Images Shot with Holga Camera

I finally developed this roll of film that I shot last year at the Ace Hotel & Swim Club in Palm Springs.

I shot this roll with my Holga camera and then cross-processed the film (used slide film and then processed it with C-41 chemicals).

062Kelly and Andrew won an engagement session with me.

From a list of 50 engagement session locations that I have put together they chose the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden.

I had never been there before and it is an absolutely beautiful place. So many different types of scenery to shoot against.

My friend Kendra Duerst of Kendra Weddings invited me to participate in a photo shoot at the Mastro's Steakhouse in Costa Mesa.

Kendra hired some amazing models and I met some great new wedding vendors that day.

This Mastro's Steakhouse location can have weddings up to 100 guests and you have a choice of 4 different room configurations. Let's be honest nothing beats Mastro's food or service. Yummy.

Emily McFarland - Mastro's Steakhouse's Event Coordinator

The Ruffled Tulip - Florists

and most of all Renee Pawale Bride's gorgeous wedding accents --
the Celebration Accent (which can be worn different ways)
Mastros Earrings
Harmony Headpiece and the
Petal Veil

Casa del Herrero Estate

I read about the Casa del Herrero Estate in Montecito in the Los Angeles Times a couple of years ago. I decided to combine having a tour of the estate with my engagement shoot at the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden.

I took this photo from the estate's lavish gardens. You can click here to read the Los Angeles Times article and here to see more images of the estate from the Los Angeles Times Photo Gallery.

I highly recommend taking a tour of this wonderful and garden.
