Wild California Countryside | Styled Bridal Session

Being here taking photographs of Laurie felt like peaceful deja vu. We used to spend hours here with my camera and bags of clothes. I grew so much here, figuring out my camera, my vision, and how to make subjects show their true selves in front of my lens.

Coming back here for these portraits felt natural. Like years ago, a type of automatic and familiar that felt good but a little creaky like an old screen door. This session gave me life, breathing creative familiarity and joy back into me. Reminded me where I came from, where I am and where I hope to go.

I’ve never found good words to describe my style. But these photos do it. And that gives me hope.
