During the many years in which I’ve been fortunate enough to photograph the happiest of moments of people’s lives I have been in so many diverse locations. I’ve been at both the St. Regis Monarch Beach and Steve and Jen’s parents’ back yard in Pacific Palisades. Which one was better? No difference to me.

What makes my day is the couple and those that surround them on their most special day. Peter and Ginger’s Long Beach backyard or The Bel Air Bay Club? Same thing. I’m a sucker for emotion over locale. Certainly when you have love you have the whole package no matter where you are. That’s why I proudly list the American Legion Halls as proudly as I list Shutters in Santa Monica or Vibiana’s in downtown L.A.. I try to capture both the emotional and esoteric beauty no matter where I’m at. That’s why I may be the photographer for you. 

That said, here is just a sampling of the locations I’ve shot. It is worth noting that I have shot in some of the finest venues in California, as well as the humblest settings as well. I’ve even shot about 25-30 weddings on the fleet of Hornblower Yachts, and on beaches all up and down the California coast.  I’ve included links to most of these particular locations in case you’re interested in finding out more about them for your day. Not only is this list not complete but it doesn’t start to touch all of the great places I’ve been for Engagement sessions.
