Sometimes I can be a bit slow.  I’m finally updating my actual website (I’ve spent far more time on this blog in the last few years and the portfolio has gotten neglected).  In the (slow) process of doing that, I realized that I don’t really feature a lot of what I do at events and weddings, and that is take candid shots.  Secretly (or not so secret since I’m telling all of you), they’re some of my favorite photos to take.  I love watching people and catching that moment when the smile is right, the expression is natural, and the moment is pretty.  Here’s a few favorites from a wedding reception I did last fall.  I’m going to dig into the archives and hopefully bring you a few more posts along these lines.

Half Moon Bay, California Coast

I grew up minutes from Half Moon Bay, California and I still live within a 30 minute drive.  It’s one of my favorite places in the Bay Area, mostly because it feels like another place entirely.  It’s a sleepy, little, coastal town that rarely sees a lot of tourists outside Mavericks (the surfing competition) each year.  Here are some recent shots where I wanted to capture how spring is feeling in this foggy place.
