AILENE + JOHN / TAHOE MEADOWS, RENO, NV ENGAGEMENT

My vision of an ideal engagement shoot setting typically consists of a stunning backdrop and ethereal golden hour lighting conditions, complimented with a lovely couple, both beautiful inside and out. Ailene and John's engagement session a few of months back pretty much encompassed all of those elements, with the added bonus of being graced with literally hundreds of unwanted pesky guests (or residents in this case). Consequently, we acquired a dozen or so mosquito bites (thanks to a mild case of Murphy's Law and my lack of preparation), but left with some pretty amazing photographs.

Ailene and John's patience, humor, and ability to poke fun at a not-so-ideal and bug-infested situation eases my mind, making me that much more excited to photograph their wedding next month!

Note to self: always have bug spray handy.

JAPAN 2016 / MY FIRST ROLLS OF 35MM FILM

Last summer, I packed my bags and took my very first trip to Japan. It had been at the top of my travel list for a long time. I brought my Canon AE-1 along to shoot my first ever rolls of 35mm film! Below are a variety of photos from Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka. I can hardly wait to go back this fall and capture more sights of this beautiful country, this time in an autumn setting!

Images shot with Canon AE-1 on a mix of Fuji 400H and Portra 400 film.
