Bryan and Makenzie – Engaged

Makenzie, the sister of Morgan whose wedding I shot a couple of years ago, (which happened to be one of my personal highlights of that year) called me in just a couple days after Bryan popped the question and asked me to shoot her wedding and engagement session.  What a joy!

Getting to know another daughter of the Gage family and her handsome and happy fiance Bryan was a lot of fun.  Besides Morgan’s wedding, we had a lot of things in common … from Biola University where both met and graduated, to Bryan’s time spent during his early teens as a missionary kid in Egypt … well, lets just say it was easy to spend a couple of hours with these two and connect in the “small world” this place has become!

So looking forward to their wedding in November!  Here are a few images from our engagement session!


Danica – Senior Year

Danica will graduate from Norco High School in California in just a few weeks … and then it’s off to Colorado for school and basketball at Western State University.  She laughs easily, she comes off with an aroma of grace and poise.  Though she plays the tough and demanding position of center on the basketball court, off the court, her style is of kindness, conversation and a smile that lights up and beckons one to smile with her.  Here are a few of my favorite images from our afternoon shoot!

Kendall – Senior Year

A year ago, I had the pleasure of shooting Kendall’s older brother Cory.  Both young men are accomplished gentlemen who were successful in high school and off to play football — Cory in Idaho, and Kendall in Wyoming.  I enjoyed walking through parts of Redlands to capture these shots.  Here are a few of my favorites!

Rolando ~ Senior Year

Rolando has made much of his four years of high school. He’s earned good grades and excelled in three sports. Hard to beat that. He’s remained a gentleman all along the way as well, and there’s not much beyond that, now is there?

With less than a semester to go ’till graduation, he’s for sure counting the days. But for his teachers, coaches and classmates, it will be a farewell for a kid who’s done the high school thing the right way.

I shot these a few months ago on the campus of UC Riverside, but alas, just now getting them blogged! Enjoy!

Dalton ~ Senior Year

He’s got a great smile, kind spirit and an outgoing personality. He’s well liked and has made a positive influence on his high school campus, excelling in the sports of cross country and track. In fact, he earned a varsity letter all four years of high school! Pretty impressive.

Turns out he was a natural in front of the camera as well and we had some fun exploring “the wilds” of Riverside looking for creative spots to shoot.

Here are a few of my faves!
