Monday

Here is a picture at Pyramid Lake on my drive back to OC from San Jose after Easter a few weeks back. It was another beautiful day so I pulled over for a few quick shots. Have a great week!

Peter G.

Last weekend I got to hang out with a my good friend Peter who was in OC for the weekend. Peter graduated from UCI a few years ago and is living in San Diego now where he grew up. He has been a great friend and had a big impact on my life. He is one of the funniest people I know, has a great outlook on life, and I don't think I have met anyone who does not enjoy being around him.

Peter has responded to God's call and decided to become a full time missionary, working on staff full-time for Athletes in Action (a branch of Campus Crusade for Christ). I am very enthusiastic about this ministry because it has been a key part of my life and spiritual growth in the last 4 years. It is exciting to think that Peter will have the opportunity to impact students like me in years to come.

Athletes in Action staff are reliant on monthly financial support for their income and Peter is in the process of gaining supporters before he can start his work. If you are interested in learning more about Peter, his goals, and possibly supporting him, please check his CCC profile HERE.

Have a great day!

Heather Bullin

This past week I had the privilege of doing a shoot with my good friend Heather. She was out here all the way from Texas for the Mt. SAC Invitational track meet. Heather is not only a great athlete, but also an amazing musician, singer, and song-writer. She is in the process of recording her first CD. Heather has a great heart for God and it is so cool to see her use her gifts to glorify Him!

If you would like to hear some of her work, you can check it out HERE.

The shoot went great! Heather was a natural and we found some beautiful locations around Walnut and Covina. It was good to shoot in the early morning for a change as I usually shoot close to Sunset. Here are a few of my favorites...Enjoy!



Heather's sister, Halie was also out visiting and came along with us for the session. I managed to get a few quick ones of her and the two of them together.

Brian and Jamie...Engaged!

Here are a bunch of my favorites from Brian and Jamie's Engagement Session. We spent the afternoon in Los Gatos, taking some pictures along the creek trail and then some around downtown. That trail was one of my favorite places to run while I was growing up in San Jose.

Brian and Jamie have been together for 10 years! I have known them since high school and it is pretty cool to see them still together and enjoying each other. We had a lot of fun and it was nice for me to change up the location as it was my first engagement shoot in Northern California.

I'm glad you guys are still going strong and I am looking forward to your wedding next year!
