One of the most thrilling flights I've taken, was on one of those little seater airplanes. Like a cessna, or something. you know, the ones you always hear that crash. But the views of Puerto Rico really squashed all of my anxiety of flying that I normal carry with me....its was just the pilot and I. She had me sit right up front, next to her. It was such a treat, I'll never forget it. We even flew through a rainbow. ahhh *sigh*.
Another round of black and white images of Vieques, on the water. I was digging through some images from my trip last year to put together a little travel book for friends. I also did a little story on a local festival celebrated in the central mountains of the island for the New York Times. It is a beautiful place with an incredible culture and I cant' wait to go back and explore more of it.
I was honored to be asked to photograph Mellissa and Andy's wedding in Nevada City in June. Andy is good friends with my boyfriend, George, often skating together in town or on skate trips. Here's a bunch of my favorites from their day. Mellissa did a wonderful job planning, yes, planning her entire wedding, aided by her family's catering business that provide the night's delicious grub! It was a perfect evening, in an incredible lush property.
Hope this counts as another clip or two! I just came across my pictures for the Los Angeles Times Travel Blog. Ive rarely seen my work come up as file but it was just a cool reminder of how far photography can travel and how far i travel for photography:

I'm very excited to share my new wedding photography website with you. Please visit! I would love to hear your thoughts. I've structured the galleries unconventionally, without categories. I wanted to create it by color as best as possible to establish a feeling rather then sectioning off the pictures. I also didn't want to create separate wedding stories because I really just want the photography to speak for itself. But that may change!
Business assignment on redevelopment plans on the old army base where this Oakland's film industry is located and how they may loose their warehouses, for the SF Chron. Currently they were not building any sets, unfortunately, as its all about timing, but found a quirky spot for this portrait.
An assignment from the SF Chron had me going out to Pleasant Hill for feature story on Casper's which celebrated its 75th anniversary. While the shoot actually happened during the reporter's interview, it was a little tricky trying to get images of the key family members of the restaurant. So i caught this little downtime of the "Casper girls."
My on-going portrait series of cockfighters were published today on PDN's photo of the day blog. How exciting! I was in mexico earlier this year and wanting to work on some kind of portrait series, so friend & photographer Holly Wilmeth suggested to follow some local cockfighters.
