Eliana & James' Engagement @ Castello di Amorosa

Eliana & James approached me about shooting their wedding video later this year, but first I got to shoot their engagement photos. The forecast said rain, so I had the idea of going to the Castello di Amorosa because I knew we'd be able to find a few places to shoot under cover...I've shot there before and I have a great relationship with a few of their staff members... 

We had a quick wine tasting, and the mood was perfect for some loving engagement photos. The rain never came either, so we had tons of spots to shoot. This turned out to be one of my favorite engagement sessions to date, and I'm looking forward to shooting their wedding film in a few months!

Yosemite, February 2016

My friend, Sean Ledbetter, was telling me about the beautiful phenomenon at Horsetail Falls in Yosemite National Park. If the conditions are just right, the last few minutes of light from the sunset illuminate a waterfall to make it look as though Lava is pouring down the cliff. My response to him was, "Let's go! I can put the trip on my credit card and you can pay me back!" A couple days later, we had a hotel reservation and we were going to make the trip!

Yosemite is absolutely beautiful. The two of us geeked out with our cameras and how Mother Nature was providing us with the most beautiful landscapes for us to capture for 3 days. We had each rented some lenses, and were just super excited to be out and about. 

These are my favorite photos that I shot on the trip. Enjoy!
