Lake Tahoe, Published, Wedding | The Knot Magazine

Friday, July 19, 2013

I feel blessed that every year I get to Lake Tahoe to capture an incredible wedding.  The team over at One Fine Day Events crafted a very unique lakeside private estate wedding on a large property that the entire lake felt private.  The warm weather with the lake breeze paired with the food and Tuscan decor gave it a unique look and feel.  Congrats Jessica & Brian, thank you for having me document your incredible day.  Enjoy this selection of photographs.

Friday, January 20, 2012

The last time this happened was 2007, 5 years ago.  Now its finished again.  I introduce to you the new website!  This time however I have a clear direction & purpose, with clarification and simplicity behind it.  Business never felt so crystal clear.  I’m so grateful for all those who’ve helped me along this year, culminating in this final presentation of what Rachel and I do.   I want to note a few people who’ve been key players in helping me do what I do.  Jeff Jochum with Startup Strategy who helped me with finally carving out my specialization and niche in 2011.  For the countless hours we’ve spent honing this down and the years you’ve been mentoring me. All the “heavy mental lifting” was worth it!  For Kevin Swan who has been walking alongside me and challenging me over the years with these concepts and available for last minute questions at midnight. Thanks to David Jay and all the crew at Showitfast for their support to enable me to have a seamless and easy website experience.  And to Michael at MYNTD, who is a fast machine at getting everything done. I highly recommend his the ease and simplicity of his “One day web design” service.  Its the fastest I’ve ever done a website and totally redefined this web experience for me.  I’d do it again!

And finally to my team; Jake, my logo designer, Kayla, Jeniene for your help in content building, and Rachel for your copy editing and being my amazing teammate.  To the industry for your referrals, and love over the years.  Finally to my clients who have so kindly chosen me for the work they’ve hired me to do. Its not really work, its my passion and love.  I should say, its the passion and joy of Rachel and I.  I hope you enjoy the new site.
