Wedding Season Is Around The Corner – Why You Should Outsource Photo Editing

Funny story behind this family – I photographed their wedding as a second shooter two and a half years ago up at Helwig Winery in Northern California!

Mother Daughter Photo Session | Fresno and Los Angeles Family Photographer

I first met Christine and her daughter Falyn when they hired me last year as their professional photographer to take their Holiday Photos.

When Maggie proposed that we take her photo shoot to the infamous Venice Canals, of course I did not object! Photographing at the Venice Canals is always so fun and fulfilling with the unique architecture, bright colors and sun shining on all the wonderful vegetation. Sometimes I get swept up in all the hustle and bustle […]
