Photographers are known for being control freaks – and I’m probably the guiltiest of us all. I guess this has to do with my perfectionist streak and wanting my business and work to be among the best of the industry. I am glad to say, however, that I have been slowly relinquishing my control – and a big part of my growth is because of my awesome Studio Manager, who holds down the fort and keeps everything in place. And yes, she’s also a perfectionist!
In the mean time, news from my studio:
TWiT Photo Episode 14 with Art Wolfe
You may have seen Art Wolfe on his TV show, Travels to the Edge, where he traverses the world and teaches you photography through his lenses. I was so excited to get better acquainted with this genuinely funny and socially conscious photography legend. Art was a joy to talk to as our guest on TWiT Photo and his work blew both Leo and I away. Watch Ep. 14 to learn his photography insights and tips here or on iTunes.

Destination Weddings & Honeymoons Feature
My photography of Angela and Jeremy Webster’s gorgeous beach wedding at Lake Tahoe is featured in the June/Summer issue of Destination Weddings & Honeymoons. The wedding, held at the beautiful Fairwinds Estate, on the north shore of Lake Tahoe, was attended by 11o guests from Taiwan, Japan, Canada and all over the U.S. Stephanie Anderson of One Fine Day was the creative genius planner and Sara Spurlock of Bellissima Floral crafted exquisite floral designs of fresh bursts of yellow, white and green.
Recommended: Monique Lhuillier
Every woman has heard of Monique Lhuillier – even if you were not a bride, you would gush over how gorgeous her exquisite, finely crafted gowns are. A fashion forward couture designer, Monique is a celebrity favorite for her wedding and red carpet gowns. I’m so glad I’ve had the opportunity to photograph many brides in Monique’s exclusive designs – and Monique was an absolute inspiration as a speaker at the engage!11 luxury wedding conference.
