Lauren & Jason’s San Francisco City Hall Elopement

This past June, Lauren and Jason flew me up to San Francisco to photograph their city hall elopement. It would be just the three of us (I love, love being the only witness), with Lauren and Jason planning a party later in the year with family and friends. We had such an epic day together, we sat in the car afterwards with joy-hangovers, completely beat, but grateful. I mean, at one point we had cheeseburgers and waffles at a diner overlooking a fog drenched ocean — I just can’t think of anything else that makes me smile more.

On the road: AMBOS Project (Art Made Between Opposite Sides)

I’m gearing up to get on the road at the end of August through September, traveling to several border towns with AMBOS (Art Made Between Opposite Sides) and Tanya Aguiñiga‘s Border Quipu. After bringing the project to all of the border crossings in California last year, AMBOS Project will be on the road taking the Border Quipu and other various artistic interventions to all of the border crossings from Lukeville, Arizona to El Paso, Texas. I helped document this project last year at the Tijuana/San Diego border and I am even more excited to join them on the road to document this next extension.

Emilie & Erik’s Danish American Backyard Wedding (Orange County)

This past April I made my way down to Orange County to capture Emilie and Erik’s wedding in the backyard for Emilie’s family home. I’ve said it before, but I love backyard weddings. It makes so much sense to me that a wedding would take place somewhere as intimate as a home. I had so much fun keeping up with all the Danish wedding traditions, which I definitely googled post-wedding shoot for a better understanding of what I was witnessing and documenting. All the texts below in italics are things I found online that I copied-and-pasted, to give you an idea of what I am talking about!

I had the privilege of photographing Clockshop‘s most recent event with Diana Nyad at Bowtie Project, two weekends ago this July. It was a pleasant summer evening around the fire while author and celebrated long distance swimmer Diana Nyad shared excerpts from her memoir, Find a Way, as the full moon rose over the L.A. River.

Reading by Moonrise is a fireside reading series organized by Clockshop and held at the Bowtie Project on the eve of the full moon. Guests are encouraged to bring picnic items and blankets and s’mores are provided after the reading.
