Our favorite season is about to be upon us,
the wonderful spring weather also comes the wedding
season. Weddings are such beautiful days and to be
to photograph them is such an honor. Weddings also are
very inspirational, you can't work at a wedding and
not come home refreshed. After spending all day
with the bride and groom capturing very emotional
and personal moments you come home feeling inspired.
One brand new thing that I will be doing shortly
is sharing the inspiration and love that I see at
everyone by producing a quarterly magazine (more of
later in this email)
Congratulations to Clayton and Janelle who were
married in Ripon, Ca on February 24th and Jason and
Valerie who were married on March 11th in San Jose.
You guys were awesome and both of your weddings
turned out wonderful. I am looking forward to all
of the weddings that we have this summer and fall,
it will be a very busy year for us. We do still
have a few Saturdays open this year so if you know
of anyone getting married let us know.
|PPSCV 1st place environmental award
In march one of our prints was awarded 1st place
for environmental portrait. The image is titled
"They were almost alone" and was taken last month
at Natural Bridges beach in Santa Cruz. This was an
engagement session for Renaldo and Lupe right at sunset.
Right before we were about to wrap things up I saw their
reflection in a pool of water and had them just take a few
minutes to hang out together while I ran over to the other
of this pool of water to grab a few shots. There were a few
in the background that I wanted to leave there because I feel
it adds to the image, even though it is an image of the couple
all about the moment of the 2 of them together, there is
to be said for the role that other people play in our lives.
|New quarterly magazine coming out soon
We are creating a new quarterly magazine coming out soon.
Right now we are still writing the first issue and it should be
out in the next few weeks. In each issue we will focus on
us as creative artists to do what we love to do.
Along the way we hope to inspire you with stories from some
of our clients, ideas on how to decorate your homes with
photographs, insight into some of our imagery and what
drives us as well as stories of hope and love. In this
sometimes seemingly dark world, there are many wonderful
people out there driving to do good and help mankind. We
want to highlight your stories. If you have a special story
about your wedding, how you and your fiance met or
anything you are doing to help the community let me know.
I am really excited about this, it will give me a way to share
some of the joy that I get to experience with my profession.
If you would like to contribute any stories let me know, you
can fill out a contact form online and I will provide you
with more details.
Look out for this coming in the mail soon.
|Thirst Relief International
We have recently been introduced to a non-profit started by
a few photographers that is really a great cause and want to
help to support them. Thirst relief international was started
by photographers to help provide clean drinking water
solutions for those in need worldwide. We will have more
information in our magazine that we will be mailing out soon,
