Another collaboration with the exceptionally talented Jamaica Dyer.
Autumn is beautiful here in the Bay Area, we usually have warm weather, clear skies, and sunshine for October, which makes for lovely outdoor images. This was my first Halloween wedding, and it was one of the more unique ceremonies I’ve photographed. Ann and Jack were married in Oakland, in the company of some of their closest friends and the tele-presence of Jack’s parents via skype. Jack loves the old Bay Bridge, so as a surprise Ann had arranged for two guys to cycle us across the new Bay Bridge which recently opened for a portrait session with the old-fashioned, but iconic former bridge. I have to admit, I have so many memories of driving over that bridge during some of the most important moments in my life, it was a bit emotional to be so close as it’s slowly dismantled, although I now have some very joyful associations after this day.

Nearly every winter my partner and I take a road trip to Arizona to spend the holidays with our nieces and nephew. I’ve been photographing them for years, it’s so wonderful watching them grow into adulthood. This year I left the DSLR at home and relied on the Fuji system. The more I shoot with this camera, the more I love it.
All photographs shot while second shooting for Morgan Bellinger of Move Photography. Thank you, Morgan, it’s always a blast working with you!
