ALL ABOUT BEER MAGAZINE, JET MAGAZINE, MODERN BRIDE,NORTHERN CALIFORNIA BRIDE.
"In my career as a Professional Photographer, I have had the pleasure of creating very special memories that last a lifetime, from the innocence of a newborn baby, or capturing a heirloom of family generations of grandchild to great grandparent, to the beautiful, blushing bride, to the tears of joy from the father of the bride or the excitement of the groom seeing his bride for the very first time. It is to me a labor of love. I feel I have the best profession in the world, simply because I have the ability to stop time in it's tracks and create your special memories to last you a lifetime. That to me is very magical and gratifying."
