Julia + Bertil, Paris France wedding

Julia et Bertil…

Relationships with my clients are often remarkable. I like to bond. I like to get to know the people who have allowed me be part of an event that will be remembered as much as their child’s birth. It’s a landmark, life changing day. Bonding with Julia and Bertil’s family and friends was easy and a significant reward for all the hours a photographer spends chasing light, hauling gear, retouching images, keeping alert and etc. etc. etc.

Julia and Bertil hired me in 2012 for a simple 3 hour elopement-style wedding at San Francisco’s City Hall. We liked one another immediately and I was hired to photograph their Paris wedding. That was 15 days ago and it is still on my mind. I was encouraged to embed with their family and friends while staying just 5 minutes walk from the Eiffel Tower.  It was a memorable week because of this wonderful wedding and couple.

I also had the honor of working with Agnes Colombo, a Paris based photographer. She acted as my 2nd photographer and shot several of the images you see below. She has a beautiful soul and is very talented. Thank you Agnes. Your future is bright.

Tina + Erik portrait session

I have known Erik and Tina for over ten years. I met them about the time that they married. They are happy. Like happy and really in love. It’s cool, inspiring and something to be cherished.  Thanks to both of you. Nice job and here’s to a life together.

Jessica + Chad Portrait Session

Jessica is a friend of mine and I had the honor of photographing her and her fiancé, Chad.

When we met, Chad had already hauled a sofa, chest, props, flowers AND hung a chandelier under a giant oak tree. Basically they became super-clients at that point.  We had fun and I got to try some new “beloved” techniques on them (more about that in an upcoming post).

Thank you Jessica and Chad. And congratulations!
