Happy Beginnings for Gina & Steve

Gina and Steve had a beautiful, sweet ceremony at The Freedom Hall & Gardens in Santa Clara on Saturday.  Their first dance was wonderfully choreographed, and they looked great together.  Here's a little glimpse into the festivities.

Hannah & Brandon Tie the Knot!

I had the great honor of being the photographer for Hannah & Brandon on Saturday at The Lodge in Tahoe Donner. The weather was beautiful, the atmosphere festive and loving, and the ceremony gorgeous, as were the bride & groom!  Their true love is so obvious for each other that I had to keep fighting off the tears as I was taking photos. Always a good thing. : ) My friend and fellow photographer Carlos Valentino assisted me, and was a great joy and help to have along.  He's posted some additional previews on his blog as well.  Enjoy them all.

Friends of Lloyd

I'm with Lloyd Dobler (Say Anything, 1989) when he said, "I don't want to sell anything, buy anything, or process anything as a career.  I don't want to sell anything bought or processed, or buy anything sold or processed, or process anything sold, bought, or processed, or repair anything sold, bought or processed.  You know, as a career, I don't want to do that."  

Call me an idealist.  It's true.  I'm not slick or tricky or pushy.  I don't want to sell anyone on anything.  It's not in my nature.  If you don't already know you want it, I don't want to convince you that you do.  I prefer to make myself available to those who already know that they want my services, and that what I have to offer is as valuable to them as it is to me.  It's a slower process, but more integral to who I am.  I can't see running my business any other way.  So, yes!  I want to you to buy my services and my images; I want to make a living doing what I love.  I just don't want to have to sell you on it.
