The Buccieros

Leaving Kodiak was bittersweet. While I was excited to begin the next chapter in our lives I was sad to leave the friends I’d met, including our next door neighbors, the Buccieros. We’ve watched their two boys grow up, shared …

Frank & Danielle – May 12, 2012

Frank and Danielle’s wedding was simple, unique and full of love. To maintain the low-key vibe, they requested I stay on the periphery while shooting during the ceremony, but I still managed to get a few closeups thanks to creative …

Class of 2012: Gene

Gene definitely wasn’t excited about having his picture taken, but after a while he opened up and even smiled a few times. For an unwilling model, he sure was photogenic! I wish him good luck with the rest of his …

Class of 2012: Keifer
