Photos I shot of Ruth Reichl in conversation with 🎙KCRW’s Evan Kleiman🎙at Annenberg Performance Studio at KCRW HQ. It was a lovely evening with celebrated author, chef, and restaurant critic Ruth Reichl, who spoke candidly about her time as the Editor of Gourmet magazine (the subject of her new book Save Me the Plums: My Gourmet Memoir). It’s always a treat to get to document and sit in as people have a conversation about their experiences and work, and what they love. ❤️
Some photos I shot last February of Women’s Øpposition Movement (@wom_la) second annual Valentine’s Day BINGO extravaganza at Zebulon! They raised $4,200 for Alexandria House (@alexandriahousela) who provides safe and supportive housing for women and children in Los Angeles. Hosted by Neil Hamburger, Bobcat Goldthwait, Megan Koester & Anna Seregina, and amazing prizes donated by so many awesome folks.

Here are some photos I shot of Carmina Escobar’s performance at The Bowtie Project for Clockshop. Escobar filled the historic Roundhouse at the Bowtie Project with light and sound for her site-specific performance FUENTES / This Nature of Ours. This performance, organized by Clockshop, was part of the Department of Cultural Affair‘s first ever public art biennial, Current:LA.
I had the honor of photographing this year’s Women’s Center for Creative Work cocktail party benefit, hosted by Jill Soloway, a few weekends back this December. Yay ∞ WCCW, thank you for the work you do.

Werk It launched in 2015 to expand women’s voices in podcasting. At the time, only 20% of all podcasts in the iTunes top 100 chart were hosted by women. THAT’S CRAZY. I’ve been so excited to help capture this event and watch women help other women hone their skills, develop their voices, and meet other like-minded women. This is my shit guys. So stoked to have been included in such good company. 🙏🏻

I love this wedding from April of last year at The Fig House. Chris & Rachel’s style is effortless and they definitely chose the venue to match. The Fig House’s self-described style is “a contemporary spin on art-deco with a nod to the rich history of Highland Park” (Los Angeles). They spent their week-day wedding surrounded by their closest family and friends and closed out the night with a killer dance party, with songs that Chris hand-picked for a playlist for the entire celebration. Not bad for a Thursday night!
Are you ready for this prom wedding that I shot last August?! My goodness, I had so much fun photographing this party. I always appreciate when people think “outside the box” and really, your wedding should be anything and everything you want it to be. With Christy and Stuart, they did just exactly that. I believe first and foremost that you make the rules of the party, and I’ll be as happy as a clam to photograph exactly how it went down. Promise.
We’re coming up on the 2 year anniversary of these two, and since this elopement has always been a favorite of mine, I thought I’d share it on the blog today. Cindy & Eric already had an upcoming wedding planned in the mid-west, where they were also relocating for Eric’s new job. But Joshua Tree was too special to them and they wanted to say good-bye their own way, so they decided to elope there on the down-low. It was just the two of them, an officiant, and me as their witness and photographer.
