Snapshots of a Photographer's Life in The Bay Area

Leslie's Quince from SF to Brentwood

I've always wanted to cover a quince. I've documented almost every type of event except this one and I was happy to say yes when Robin asked me to be part of Leslie's, her boyfriend's sister.

We lucked out with the weather, I thought, as I ventured to their home in Pittsburg on a super gorgeous Saturday morning. Met the entourage and rode with them in the Hummer limo for some pre-quince photos in Treasure Island. From there, we headed to Wedgewood Wedding & Banquet Center at the Brentwood Golf Club where, as you'll see below, she enjoyed the rest of the night with her friends and family.

The All-in-1 San Francisco City Hall Wedding Package

The All-in-1 (1.5 hours) - $1,000
(available for booking starting on April 1, 2016)

- Coverage includes check-in, ceremony and portraits (of newlywed couple and group shots with guests) in and around the City Hall.

- Flashdrive that includes all original photos, edited images in color and black & white and a 3-4 minute photo slideshow with background music.

- Online gallery for viewing and purchasing prints (customizable in color, B&W or sepia).

Calling All Photographers for a San Francisco City Hall Collective

I am on the hunt for awesome photographers wanting to get into San Francisco City Hall wedding photography or someone who's already doing it and simply wants to fill unbooked days of the week.

I am launching a photography collective made up of unbelievably creative, kind souls who love being a part of weddings, of documenting it a certain way and have a special affinity for the San Francisco City Hall.

If you've already been shooting weddings here, perfect. If not, I'll teach you the ins and outs of the building and how the coverage process flows.

How To Be a Rockstar Solopreneur ala Saul

If you're a struggling solopreneur, you'll find a few solid business ideas from AMC'sBetter Call Saul,the spin-off prequel ofBreaking Bad.

WhileSaul's (or James Morgan "Jimmy" McGill) character may rub off some people the wrong way, you gotta love the dude's entrepreneural and husting spirit. He's a one man enterprise who comes up with creative, out of the box strategies to get his business off the ground. Any entrepreneur can relate with the struggle. I do.


I've been up since 2:00 this morning, thanks to swollen gums that hurt like a mother.

I've had oral surgery a couple weeks ago and despite my dentist and oral surgeon denying that this inflammtion has nothing to do with the extraction, I find it hard to dismiss it as simple coincidence.

I was given an antibiotic mouth rinse but the swelling significantly gets worse each day. So I'm like, WTF. Been oil pulling followed with a salt water rinse but yet to see any improvement.

Thinking of my happy place only lasts for so long and I was hoping working would take my mind away from it and writing this would eventually develop into a well meaning post about things you can do to get rid of pain.
