Figueroa Mountain Farmhouse Wedding…

| August 26, 2011

So… One of my best friends just got married at the Figueroa mountain farmhouse in Santa Ynez; I was one of the groomsman…  Bit of a conflict in interests because I wanted to be the photographer for this over the top fabulous wedding!  Once I came to grips with the fact I couldn’t shoot everything, I was able to calm down and just shoot some photos for fun. My friend Ryan and his Wife Kat are an amazing couple, and they surround themselves with ridiculously cool people.  A lot of these photos I shot were of the guys, real men… The kinds of guys that only come around once in a blue moon.  The wedding was amazing… It was on a full moon, camping & partying all night long was involved, and we celebrated like no one ever has in this secluded little valley at the base of Figueroa Mountain, this I know for sure… Ryan & Kat are in the Maldives right now at a 6th Sense Resort or something for their honeymoon; Ryan had mentioned something about a personal butler before they left, whatever… Just venting a little because I REALLY want to be diving off of my own personal over the water luxury cabana into gin clear water while my butler brings me thinly sliced sashimi & fresh exotic fruit!!!! Kinda jealous right now…  seriously though, I love you guys and this was the most fun I have ever had at a wedding!  Much love…

Have a great weekend…

Yosemite…

I just got back from a backpacking trip in Yosemite with a few friends and it was amazing…. Away from all signs of life with one of my favorite cameras!  I felt like Ansel Adams!

Light…

| August 10, 2011

There is something magical, spiritual, and unexplainable about light…  This is a major reason why I love photography.  Capturing light during a split second in time, a moment in your life that lives on forever…  Magic, some of the most amazing light I’ve ever seen has been when I don’t have a camera, on my surfboard at sunset, the way light plays on the water, pure moments…  you have to live and love like each day is your last… My wife doesn’t think she looks “cute” in this photo I snapped of her the other day on a walk, I think she looks beautiful…

The Winery…

There is something about a really good glass of wine that I just love…  Good thing my friend Drake makes some of the best wine in Santa Barbara!  I took these shots the other day of the guys bottling some Syrah.  If your in the mood for amazing wine check out Drakes selection here in SB at Whitcraft Winery.  Enjoy!!
