Candela and Ed married in Ibiza, Spain. It’s a small island known for partying, beaches, and then more partying. Like most destination weddings, I shot over 3 days and “embedded” with everyone. Where the group went, I did too, with camera. This is great because the photos are more personal and friendships are made.

What a trip. What a group. My thanks to the Gibsons, Monteros and everyone else I met.
Here’s to Ibiza, Candela and Ed!

I am often asked where my favorite place to shoot is. Yes, the destination weddings are exciting, but some of the best locations are close to my home (Sonoma, Napa and San Francisco).

This is one of those weddings.

Photographing couples in Paris is about as good as it gets and the perk to being a destination wedding photographer.

I met Candela and Ed while shooting a wedding in Paris a few months ago. Candela was a bridesmaid for that wedding and planning for her own wedding in Ibiza, Spain. We did this session one February morning near the the Eiffel Tower. These photos feel good because these two are pretty awesome and full of fun and style— another perk. I’ll be shooting their wedding in Spain soon and can’t wait.

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.

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.
