  • About Me

    I became fascinated with photography at an early age, thanks to my father. It wasn’t his photographic skill that inspired me, though, since my dad was not a very good photographer. We would always joke how people in his photos would have plants and trees growing out of their heads.

    It was actually my father’s camera that captured my interest. I loved the way it felt in my hands — all those cool buttons and controls. It intrigued me. I was also amazed at how it could be used to create these awesome images.

Triunfo Creek Vineyards Wedding

Triunfo Creek Vineyards Wedding

Christina and Kyle were recently married at St Judes Catholic church in Westlake Village followed by a beautiful reception at Triunfo Creek Vineyards in Agoura Hills. The reception venue was rich with details including  a candy bar, special chorizo and cheese service, awesome games – Corn Hole and Beer Pong for adventurous guests, a DJ that had the partying rocking and a trolley for the wedding party! The wedding party was seated at an amazing King Table.

Triunfo Creek Vineyards provide the most amazing backdrop to capture some amazing  images of Christina and Kyle. Here are some of my favorites.

William- you are amazing. Thank you so much for being the best photographer we could have ever asked for on our wedding day. You captured the essence of the day perfectly, and Kyle and I are so thankful that we were lucky enough to work with such a talent!

Newhall Mansion Wedding

Newhall Mansion Wedding

I recently phototgraphed a Newhall Mansion wedding in Piru California. The bride and groom – Lori and Paul wanted to create a special day at the Mansion for their friends and guests. The attention to detail was amazing.

The Newhall mansion was a very special place for the bride and groom due to their history in Piru The bride’s grandparents moved to Piru during the Great Depression and her father grew up and currently resides in the home he was raised in next to the mansion. Their family knew the Newhall’s and her dad actually watched the original mansion burn down in the 80′s while hosing off the roof of his own home so that it didn’t catch on fire. Paul and Lori both met in Piru, where his dad resides on a goat farm above the riverbed. The Newhall mansion (formerly known as  the Piru Mansion  in Piru CA)  has always been a symbol of their history and love for each other, being rebuilt and restored into what it is today. A truly symbolic venue for them and their special day!

The bride’s bouquet was handmade, with a Styrofoam ball, wooden dowels, burlap and brooches pinned on and glued. All the brooches were given to Lori as gifts, some were heirlooms and the photos of her parents and grandparents total 146 years of successful marriage.

The table  number markers made out of scrapbook paper, 99 Cent Store frames, hand cut cardboard letters painted and wrapped in wire taffeta and then glued on. The frames were painted with a darker acrylic brown and roughed up by hand with a swipe of sandpaper. Napkin rings made out of hand cut scrapbook paper flowers & leftover wire from a home wreath project taped and glued in circular shape. Chalkboard signage – made out of old, gifted and yard sale frames, painted, chalkboard paint and hand written w/a chalk pen. Some signage was embellished with moss leftover from pallet signage. All these details helped to embellish this Newhall Mansion wedding.

Other details included pallet signage, made with an old beat up pallets, cardboard arrows cut out and covered with scrapbook paper, letters on arrows were also made of cardboard, painted, wrapped with taffeta and glued on. Boutineer’s & Bridesmaid bouquets created by the bride from flowers purchased in Los Angeles garmet district.

Games include Jenga made out of wood purchased at Home Depot and a little sweet talking to an attendant to cut to size. Stained and painted with a gold paint pen. Scrabble was made by family friends and repainted myself to match pallet.

Here are some of the many photos from their special day -
