julia+don’s hawaii beloved session

Julia+Don are wedding photographers based out of Spokane, Washington (but if you think I travel a lot, you should see their schedule!).

I met Don at a really neat conference in Vancouver (which I'm going to again this year) and we hit it off. Both of there where on O'ahu when Jessica and I were, so we headed up a mountain to do a double session – they shot us and I shot them. Here's some of my favorite from our short session at sunset near Nanakuli.

(PS: If you like cool photography series, check out their neat series with a spacesuit on instagram)

(PPS: I will be in Hawaii through Feb 11th, if you or anyone you know would be interested in a session like this, drop me a line.

los angeles and san diego, take two

I returned to Los Angeles (for the second time this year) to attend a amazing conference: AdventureAlways – a collection of artists that inspired, induced many tears, and became good friends. It was a truly wonderful chance to grow as an artist and a person and I'm very excited for some plans I made from my time there.

We stayed on the Queen Mary in Long Beach, California which Arrested Development fans will recognize. So for the costume party that was thrown I went as Buster from that episode. The only costume I think I've ever really been excited about!

One of my favorite shots below (the 4th down) is my photojournalistic shot of Nick Ray, a photojournalist who worked for The Times for 10 years and has shot from war zones to weddings.

I also hit up San Diego, again, to visit some friends (the Mitchells you'll see below) and visit the city that may one day be our home (I would SOOO love to live out there).

This wraps up the busiest two months of the year for me. 9 weddings, 10 engagement sessions, 3 senior photos sessions, and 2 weeks of travel – these last 60 days have been something else and I'm very grateful for it all.

So many more photos over on my Instagram account – so check them out there too!
