I Heart Shoes – San Diego Product Photography

What could be better? Photography and shoes, two of my favorite things! I did some product photography work for Forward Footwear in San Diego.

I think this is my favorite!

If you have a new product you are launching or just want to show off a product that needs some photo love, contact me! I am happy to discuss!


Christmas In (Almost) July!

Christmas in July!? Well, almost July anyway!

Yeah, Yeah, I know the holidays are over…as a matter of fact, we are getting closer to Holidays 2011, can you believe it? YIKES! Before it gets even later in the year, I wanted to post some photos I took in New York, Holidays 2010. I went home to see my family and acted like a TOURIST! <Gasp!>  I hate looking like a tourist anywhere, but especially my home state! Luckily it resulted in some really nice images, so I feel OK about the tourist thing!

Upon arrive in Grand Central station, I walked past Junior’s.  Actually, it’s a baby Junior’s, meaning it’s just a small shop where you get dessert to-go. They also have several full restaurants around NYC. They are famous for their cheesecake, which is the ONE dessert I don’t eat (although I eat everything else!). I could not help but take a photo of the boxes and boxes of cheesecakes stacked in the tiny shop for all of the holiday travelers!

The Empire State Building is styled in Art Deco, which I love! From this angle though, it’s hard to tell, but I do love how you get the feeling that the building is just so big.

I’m pretty sure that if I had lived in the city when I was in high school learning photography, I would have taken these subway photos back then : )

Per their website, Mcsorley’s “can boast of being New York City’s oldest continuously operated saloon” as it opened in 1854! What the what? Yes, 1854! We stopped in to check it out, how could we not!

You can’t go to NYC around the holidays and not go into FAO Schwarz, come on, am I right? This was by FAR the biggest stuffed animal I have seen in my whole life!

Remember the movie “Big”? If you grew up the 80′s like I did, this next photo will both excite you and make you want to cry an little (because if you don’t win the lottery, you probably will never own one, sorry!).

The snow makes everything so quiet…

Dave & Syl Get Married – San Diego Wedding Photography

Meet Dave and Syl! They were an awesome laid back San Diego couple that I had the pleasure of photographing after I got a call from my friends at Goodnickels Photography. Someone was sick and they needed some assistance. I was happy to jump on board and help out. Here are some of the images from the lovely beach-side day.

Dave relaxed with his groomsmen just a short walk from the ceremony site.

Their ceremony was so sweet and personal! Bethel was an amazing officiant!

During the ceremony as  I crouched down in the aisle to take pictures of the bride and groom, I looked over and this little cutie wanted to play!

Mother and Father of the bride as they walked down the aisle of the ceremony to cocktail hour. So happy!

A few lovely details…

Syl and Dave taking a casual formal with Syl’s parents and sisters. I love how happy they all look!

Because I couldn’t decide on one bridal party pictures to post (they are all so fun!), here is a series!

Pretty sure these are their Zoolander faces!

Nothin’ like a pat on the tush from your sister! (I love how Dave and Syl are just watching them!)

Love Dave’s smile here…

I caught this moment of  Syl checking out her new rings.Thanks to Dave and Syl for allowing me to join them on their special day at the last moment! It was a lovely day!
