Your Wedding Session Starts Here

As a photographer the only the way to earning your business is by a good portfolio and a good reputation. When you first start out you have neither of those, so it is necessary to do a lot of hard work. You either trade your services or offer your services pro bono, but which ever path is chosen it is imperative to always at all cost do the best job that you can. Here is just a small sample of some of the recent photo sessions and weddings that I have done. I'm a firm believer in always working hard whether it's a big job or a small intimate one. When your reputation is on the line you can not afford...

Let Me Capture Your Moments

Taking photos to document life is very easy to do in this digital age. Everybody can do it. Whether you capture a moment with your smart phone or digital camera or video camera everybody has easy access to do it. I've found that it may be too easy in this day and age to have access to this. People lose that moment when they have their nose buried in their personal devices. So rather than being behind your camera, be in front of it and be in the moment with the ones you love. Have a look at the small trailer I prepared to show just what I can do for you.   http://youtu.be/cOwtr-2gbiI

Happy Birthday Max Max!

Such a great weekend with beautiful weather all around. I got to celebrate the 3rd Birthday with my Godson Max and was able to capture parts of the day. Before the party Denny had asked me if I was going to the party and if it wasn't too much trouble to take photos of the day, of course I said I would.  The funny thing is, I was going to bring my camera anyway to get some photos and get some practice with so many little ones running around. So here are some of the results from what I saw. Fun times creating good memories to look back upon one day. That's what it's all about creating the good...

Is It What Makes You Happy?

Is it? Does it? I sit here thinking about those questions as I type this. Does it make you happy what you're doing? In the past year or so, I've had numerous people and clients tell me, "Adrian, I can tell you really love what you're doing, taking photos. You've got the eye for it. It shows in the way your photos come out and it shows while you work during the session." I was taken aback by the comments and didn't expect to hear something like that either. I actually felt happy about what was said.  I do love taking photos and I truly feel happy during my photo sessions. I get that good...

Stacey and James Tarver Wedding, September 08 2013

Weddings no matter how big or small bring friends and family from all over to gather together to celebrate the union of two people. In this case it was more than just a normal wedding for me, not because I was photographing it, but because it was the wedding of my cousin Stacey. I've seen her grow up from the little girl that I carried on my back to the woman she is today and she's such a wonderful warm hearted human being. I was truly honored that her and James asked me to be the one to photograph their big day. So here is just a little glimpse of what I saw on their wedding day and it doesn't...

New ideas and new plans arising.

I have some awesome ideas that I hope I can get out of my head, on to some paper and actually being able to re-create what I envision. I guess it's easier said than done, but still... dream big right? Hopefully over the next few weeks or months I will be able to create some new and exciting things. I just have to do a lot of testing and trial and error until I get it right. I won't be happy until I have a great product that I can offer clients. If it's not great I would just be too embarrassed to offer a lousy product. But until I can get these ideas out of my little brain I'll have to keep...

Mission almost accomplished…

Wow it was like a whirlwind. Driving up to Yosemite for the first time on Friday, June 28 2013 was a nice relaxing drive. We got to stop in at Bass Pro Shop to see what everybody always talks about and I gotta say it was pretty cool. They have a lot of stuff to see and interact with. Too bad I'm not much of that kind of an outdoor person to utilize all the neat stuff they have. We also stopped over at the AMC theater to see the movie White House Down which was a lot better than I would ever have expected. Nice action flick. I guess we did all the relaxing before the Wedding Photo shoot rather...

Getting Ready

Still trying to get this website up to date. It's been quite a lot of work and I'm pretty much learning as I go. Luckily there are tons of how-tos out there especially on youtube where you get visual aids as well and you don't have to read so much. Hopefully I can learn enough and always keep things up to date with my photo happenings and maybe I can have some of my own tutorials as well from my own photo shoots. Also going on is a destination wedding shoot  in Yosemite coming up this weekend. I'm pretty excited about it, because I've never been to Yosemite and my clients are such great awesome...
