Bridget and Mike were married at The Parker Palm Springs at the end of last year. The Parker is one of my favorite venues and if you like the Mid Century Modern look, this is your place. Jonathan Adler designed the interior decor and it is top notch.
Bridget and Mike were such a fun couple and loved being a part of their wedding. Working with Green Ribbon Events and the team of people like JL Designs made the decor stunning and day run smoothly!

I had the chance to participate in Photo Field Trip that took place last month. It was an awesome experience and you have to try and go next year. I shot some portraits of old friends and new.
Another announcement is that I've launched a new site I've been working on called The Artist Report - where I interview other creatives about their processes, inspirations and what they're up to.
There are a few interviews up from Field Trip and I have a bunch in the pipeline to start making live. Hope you go check it out!

Tamara and John are the sweetest couple. I had such an amazing time with them shooting photos all over Seattle. We were actually hoping for a foggy gloomy feel but of course we ended up with a rare winter sunny day. Ended up beautiful. Can't wait for their wedding with the Mindy Weiss team next month!!

Weddings on private estates are at the top of my list for favorite places to shoot weddings. This was family property up in the Santa Ynez valley near Solvang. The landscape in that area is so picturesque with the rolling hills and moss covered trees. I acutally met Anne and Marc while I was photographing a concert (here's a link to the actual show I shot that night of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros) So we connected over a love of music and I got to spend a day with them shooting their engagement photos around an old airport Anne's dad was a big part of.
Here are their photos. Loved this wedding:
