We’ve upgraded our equipment and are back and booking for 2017 and beyond!


A new trend is happening in the wedding world: Unplugging your guests!  What does that mean exactly?  It means asking guests to keep their cell phones and cameras off during your ceremony and special parts of the wedding such as toast, first dance, and cake cutting.  Why is this important?  I can’t count how many times certain shots were ruined due to people standing in the professional’s way.  Elbows pointing in the middle of the aisle or people jumping in the aisle to get that shot that you paid me to capture for you! For example, these pictures below, yet look at Chelsea Clinton’s wonderful ceremony picture.  That is the look that we are always are going for.  Another huge reason to unplug your guests is they aren’t enjoying your wedding! Take a look at one of Ryan Brenizer’s pictures that he recently took at a wedding of a message telling friends and family to unplug and relax for their wedding. Please take a moment and talk it over with your partner and tell your guests that you will be happy to provide them with copies of your wedding photos!

All of her tattoos were due to tragedy in her life, and were stepping stones of suffering and what  she had overcome.


Melissa and Chris were students in college together.  Both musicians, but began as more enemies than friends. As time progressed they stayed in contact through emails, and fellow companions.  Until one day, Melissa called Chris to say happy Birthday.  A date they both shared.  When they spoke Melissa found out Chris had just suffered a divorce from his wife of 13 years.  through the next few years, she helped him through some of the tough times.  Being a confidant, a companion, and just someone to talk to when he needed.  The two grew closer as the days and months went by.  Now they are getting married on June 23rd, on Cannon Beach.

“My skull and top hat tattoo is the biggest piece I have to date, it is also my most masculine tattoo. I originally wanted two separate tattoos one of an open bird cage with birds flying free, and the skull. My tattooist Dean (whom is an old school tattooer from San Diego) said, ” We can put both together,” and I loved that idea.

The open bird cage with the birds flying free was about my leaving a situation that I just wasn’t suited for any more. It felt like I was discovering freedom again. Many people would probably assume that it was a relationship, however it mostly is about me setting myself free from myself, to stand up and say this is the direction I need to, even if its a lonely road.

My skull…. well I mostly wanted a “proper gentleman’s” skull with a top hat and monocle. It is a a smoking skull and that was a tiny ode to Hunter S. Thompson. Mostly in looking at this piece I wanted it to be colorful with a lot of elements that didn’t necessarily match, because that is a good representation of who I am mostly mix matched.”
