Foothills Park Engagement Photography - Lynn and Daniel

Last month, Lynn and Daniel invited me to their home in the Palo Alto Foothills for their engagement session. Before I even got to their front door, I was greeted by their energetic pup, Koda. And as I stepped inside their home, I met Lynn and Daniel's other fur baby, their cat Baloo.After some quick dinner prep,

Lynn and Daniel brought me to the gazebo in their backyard. En route to the top of the hill, I may have inadvertently fallen and bruised my thigh... But, rest assured, the camera was okay, and that’s what really matters!

When I first started emailing Amber and Josh ahead of their engagement shoot, Amber shared a specific vision she had in mind. She said she wanted their photos to emulate "a cool new band, ready to drop a sick album." Let me tell you: I think we nailed it.

Lick Observatory Engagement Photography - D & A

D & A's engagement session at the Lick Observatory was truly out of this world. After a windy, 20-mile drive up to the summit of Mount Hamilton, we made our way into the dome that housed the observatory's renowned 91-centimeter refractor telescope. Many astronomical discoveries were made at this observatory: Jupiter's moons, several planet systems, and the spark between D & A, when they had their first date here five years ago.

Visual Intermission - Dog Days

For most of my life, I was never quite a dog person. That changed the day I met Chopper — my now in-laws' pit bull/American Staffordshire Terrier/American Bully mix. He's a huge dog, and (I admit) a bit intimidating when you first meet him. But he also has a huge heart, and I ended up warming up to him fairly easily. I began photographing him about a year and a half ago; he was my original canine muse.
