I have adored photographs all of my life.

The love affair started in grade school.  In middle school I was already in the darkroom.

In high school I realized that some things I photographed literally took my breath away. 

And in college, I simply fell even more head over heels in love with it.

When I was 20 years old, I shot my first wedding, solo at Yamashiro's in Hollywood.

It's just part of me.  A very big part.  And I can't, wouldn't want to, imagine my life without it.

I still get teary at "I do" s. 

And the light and the beauty that is in your faces, that is in the sea and in the sky, and that is all around us...will always take my breath away.
