Here’s our 2nd photoshoot with Flashes of Hope at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. I admittedly felt a bit exploitative posting these photographs on our blog. I almost didn’t for this reason but felt not doing so would have been a disservice for these children….I hope to inspire people viewing these photographs to donate anything they can to help photograph other children with Cancer for their families. After our first shoot, I was sent a note from one of the mothers of a child we photographed. She wrote “She loved posing and her beauty is breathtaking – her real soul comes through. These pictures will always help me remember how far we have come and that even in her darkest times, she is just a child, a beautiful child.” Please visit Flashes of Hope to send any donation you can. Everyone involved that makes these shoots happen does so on a volunteer basis. The families receive prints of every photograph we capture of their child.
Angela and I photographed and shot Super 8 at this stunning wedding at Malibu’s Calamigos Ranch this past weekend with San Francisco based lawyer Carrie Richey and her fiancé, famed street artist Ben Eine (Ben was just chosen to collaborate with Louis Vuiton on some projects). Thanks to the always lovely Carole Grogan of Bright Blue Events for designing and coordinating such an amazing event. Invitations and sign designed by Ben Eine. Carrie’s dress by Claire Pettibone. Shoes by Manolo Blahnik. Flowers by Lotus & Lily. Cake by Cake Divas. Furniture rentals by Found Vintage Rentals. Chandeliers by Melrose Chandelier. Reception DJ by DJ Nahchey. Photography: Digital. Motion: Silent Super 8 film (blog post coming soon…). Fun fact: Carrie caught the bouquet several years ago at a wedding we photographed on Catalina Island!

One of our recent community projects is volunteering with Flashes of Hope, a non-profit organization whose goal is to photograph every child with cancer until every child is cured. We photographed this beautiful group of kids at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. Nobody I have ever seen through the lens of my camera is as striking as these children. Their energy and attitudes, despite their opposition was incredible. Again, please visit Flashes of Hope to send any donation you can. The families receive prints of every photograph captured of their child.
Here’s Joy and Greg’s authentic Super 8 wedding film from their wedding at El Monte Sagrado in Taos, New Mexico. Super 8 was added on as an addition to their still photography. In addition to film and digital still photography, Angela and I used real silent Super 8 motion picture film for Joy and Greg’s wedding (The Wonder Years style!). Flowers and design by Andrea Soorikian. Hair and makeup by Stephanie Brenan. Cake by Tree House Pastry Shop. Stationary by The Green Kangaroo. Live band performance by Nashville’s Matt McAtee and the Eventuals. Special guest appearance by Daisy the Rottweiler (who was an absolute sweetheart). Music in the film is “Through the Winter” by The Woodlands and “I’ve Got you Covered” by Matt McAtee (who performed live at the wedding and makes a cameo).
