Kelly + Brian at Skytop Lodge

Kelly + Brian gathered their friends + family at the elegant Skytop Lodge for a spring wedding. We took advantage of the nice temperatures and traversed the trail towards Indian Ladder Falls, for some shrouded tree photo locations after a "first look" on the south porch. The perfectly lit lobby was our family group photo area.

The patio marriage ceremony was set in the Formal Garden against the porch backdrop among a plethora of tulips on all sides. Cocktails followed on the Evergreen patio outside the ballroom. DJ Marquis from Philadelphia orchestrated the festivities, before during and after a great dinner with toasts and various dances. 


Motorcar Excursion to Figueroa Mountain in CA

Saturday my friends Paul and Katushka took my old 72 Mercedes for a much needed drive into the driveable back-country from Santa Barbara to Figueroa Mountain. We had set out to see the poppies and lupen if they were out.(they barely were) We meandered our way onto Happy Canyon Road where I’ve photographed pro bike teams including Lance Armstrong and the Chevrolet teams over the years. The car performed flawlessly for it’s condition and we created a few images along the way.
