Out of the Shadows – NYC Williamsburg Bridge

Midtown Walkabout

Recently my son-in-law Evan (@evan5ps,,,  led a photo walk in Midtown Atlanta near 14th Street and Peachtree.  Great turnout – 40-50 people.  So I joined up for a short bit and lavished in an hour or so of capturing street images at dusk while Katie kept me company.  Enjoy!

San Franciscans on the Go

April 24, 2016

The dust is starting to settle from a spectacular wedding celebration – Mr. and Mrs. Evan Ranft.  We are incredibly proud and thankful for Katie and Evan, their “big day”, and everything the future has to bring for them.  They were meant for each other, and God is looking down on them and guiding them.

12Stone Church

Duck Hunt at Port O’Connor, TX

Recently I had a chance to go duck hunting, thanks to my long time friend and dentist Keith Broome (an amazingly kind, faithful, and talented guy).  It’s been at least 35-40 years since I’ve hunted, and this was my first time duck hunting.  It brought back lots of childhood memories of my dad taking me […]

Jackson – Wedding Day

One week ago I had the honor of photographing Jackson on his wedding day.  His family and ours have a close friendship, having spent many times together at church and with our kids in school over the years.  He’s a great “kid” with a solid upbringing and a promising future.  Congratulations to Jackson and Megan!

Project 365 – Day 116 Friday was a huge day!  My youngest was proposed to, so we have a wedding in our future!  I was away Friday, so I didn’t get to hug her or grab a quick photo.  Saturday was a “bust” as well because she had to work into the evening.  So FINALLY […]

Project 365 – Day 108 April 18 is a very special day!  It’s Emily’s special day, ,and it was only appropriate that we would have dinner at Dominick’s.  It’s one of her favorites.  And of course, we had to finish the evening off with some cupcake awesomeness at home. I love and adore you, Emily! […]
