James and Jennifer | Los Angeles Wedding Photography
| January 30th, 2010 |

James and Jennifer’s Photo Store

James and Jennifer finally tied the knot! According to friends and family James and Jennifer dated for approximately 349 years before making it official. The couple was married by long time friend Tanner Boley (who I’m convinced decided to shorten the ceremony to three minutes just to screw with me). This beautiful backyard wedding in Los Angeles came complete with a fire pit and trampoline! Enjoy.

The following is an example of what I got while experimenting with using my close up lighting kit as a quasi “ring flash”. The kit is definitely not made for this purpose, but it created cool effect none the less. Robert's2 Robert's3

Cancun Mexico | Travel Photography
| January 13th, 2010 |

Lots of people wonder what vacation photos look like when a photographer takes a vacation. I was fortunate enough to travel to Cancun Mexico for a week of relaxation with some close family and friends. Not wanting to lug around massive amounts of photo equipment all I took was a Nikon D90 and the Nikkor 18-200 VR lens, an affordable setup that is perfect for anybody looking to upgrade their photo equipment.Cancun2010-014


The pools at our hotel were amazing, and this lap pool made doing my morning swim workouts more enjoyable then they have ever been. Why can’t we have this back in Visalia?



The cenotes in the Rivera Maya are truly one of the most amazing sites I have ever seen. They look like something out of an Indiana Jones movie. This particular cenote had ledges to jump off of and I couldn’t resist myself.Cancun2010-189


The Mayan ruins at Ek’ Balam are phenomenal, and getting to see and climb them ranks among the top 10 coolest things I have ever done. Ek’ Balam means black jaguar in Mayan and this city was once a thriving metropolis in the center of the Mexican jungle. Even though it was chilly out on the beach in Cancun, the temperature soared to a high in the upper 80’s out here (and it was January!).

Mayan Temple 1

Probably one the most famous of the Mayan Ruins is the temple complex at Chichen Itza, and while it is not possible to climb the big pyramid anymore we did somehow manage to get a private after hours tour of the whole complex, which included an after dark visit to the observatory where the Mayan Astronomers studied the stars and developed plans for some of the amazing events which happen with the architecture of the Chichen Itza temple.

Tamara and Erik | Malibu Wedding Photography
| December 12th, 2009 |

Tamara and Erik were married at the beautiful Stauffer Chapel at Pepperdine University in Malibu California. Tamra and Erik met while they were both attending Pepperdine University, and according to Tamra’s mom, Tamara was sure that she was going to marry Erik after their first date. The ceremony was full of close friends and family and it was a pleasure to photograph this beautiful wedding, the love that their families have for them was apparent through the whole weekend. Despite a rainy day Tamara made the best of it with matching rain boots and umbrellas for each of her bridesmaids. Even though it was raining on the day of their wedding, the weather was perfect for their engagement photos on the beach in Malibu California.

Sarah | Sacramento CA Senior Portraits
| November 29th, 2009 |

Sarah is a senior at Cordova High School just outside of Sacramento. She is the yearbook editor for her school, and as such she knew she wanted some cool and unique photos. Sarah has some cool style and we picked a super cool “undisclosed” location and had an absolute blast taking her senior portraits on an unseasonably warm Thanksgiving weekend here in the Central Valley.
