Taylor | Fashion Teaser

IMG_6485web

“If I could tell you how I felt in words, I wouldn’t need photography.” Something I have told people, that couldn’t be more true. I don’t do it for money, or fame but because my heart uses it to speak.

Teaser from the session with Taylor tonight. Been a while but I’m really digging the images from the shoot and felt good to get shooting again!

The Gray Family

I had the pleasure of photographing the Gray Family for their holiday photos. This is one of those families that reminds me how fortunate that I am to be able to do what I do. There was fighting, crying, laughter, and lots of goofiness during their session. More importantly there is so much love and these are some extremely down to earth people who make you feel like you have known them forever. I have said it before and I’ll probably never stop saying it, but my clients thank me for their sessions and prints etc. but I always end up feeling that I should be the one thanking them for quite simply making my job zoo easy and fun. Anyway enough of my sappiness and take a look at their family photos.

Anderson Wedding | Wedgewood Fresno, CA

What better way to start the new year with something brand new that you haven’t seen from me at all. A WEDDING!! Woohoo!! This has been something I have been hesitant about doing until I felt that I was ready. Let’s be honest. Weddings are a huge deal. Cue the 8 mile soundtrack. You only get one shot. Most photographers will tell you they either love it or hate it. Me personally, I loved every second of it.

This is a couple that you have seen on my blog before. I have gotten to know them over the course of the last year and I couldn’t have asked for a better couple for my first wedding. I really don’t have a lot to say other than how much I love this couple, how fortunate I am to have met them and that they brought me along for the ride. Cheers to Brad & Sara Anderson! Enjoy the images!

Sara Anderson - David, I’ve said this before and I will say it a million times….these photos are AMAZING! Brad and I cannot thank you enough for being our wedding photographer! You did a great job and I will recommend you to everyone I know! We will forever cherish these images. We will be keeping in touch and I’ll know who to call for my maternity/baby photos in the future! ;)

My First Wedding Post. . . .what!!!!

I did it. I shot a wedding. Some will tell you with all their being, “don’t do it, they are awful.” You don’t have enough experience. You are too young. Some of the veteran photographers will try to deter you from it. Now realistically most of them are trying to help because don’t get me wrong there is A LOT that goes into a wedding. The final decision will come to the photographer. The schedule will revolve around you. Pressure? You bet.

But honestly, I loved it. I couldn’t get enough. Yeah my feet hurt after. I shouldn’t have bought those shoes the day of. But at least they looked good. And I’m young, a few blisters won’t hurt. In fact they build character. Okay not really, but it was well worth it.

This is just a teaser image. One of the last shots of the night. I’ll talk more about Brad and Sara in the full post. But for now, just to get your mouth watering for more, here is the first bite. Head over to the facebook page to see more teasers leading up to the full blog post. 

A New Color

One of my good friends Jeff, told me the other day while we were shooting that it had been 3 years since the start of his business venture with New Color Clothing. Honestly it blew my mind. I remember sitting down with him between classes at Fresno State in front of the always busy Starbucks on the 2nd floor, talking about this, idea. That’s all it was back then. An idea with some drawings and a little bit of hope. Now look where he is. I am so happy for everything that is going on for him. It also makes me feel old, but that’s besides the point.

I love the idea of young, innovative, passionate people pursuing what they love. Heck if you are passionate about anything, pursue that, regardless how much of an old crotchety fart you are (like myself, at least sometimes I feel that way) pursue what you love. Way easier said than done, but it’s a start.

Now on to the photography side of this. I shot this image with a spunky little camera called the Fuji X Pro 1. The camera is amazing. If you are looking for a small, lightweight and intimate system. Get it. Or for that matter any in the fuji X series line. You don’t have to be a photographer to appreciate their cameras either. Personally, I think these mirrorless systems will take over the DSLR market. That’s how good they are. Anyway more to come about the X Pro 1 in it’s own blog later on.

Lot’s more to write and post, but very little time. So just wanted to pop in and give a quick update. Like and comments really help me out and I appreciate every one.
