Thanks to Ross at Flosites, I just put up my new blog, which he custom created for me. I'll be adding some galleries in the next few days, along with the wedding from Santorini, Greece. But here is the new look with the wedding from a couple of old friends, Erin and Chris.

Thanks for looking. More on the way very soon.

Everyone knows how much I love Mexico. When I am there, I never want to leave. But that has never been more true than after three days at Lauren and Frank's wedding outside of Tulum. Everyone was so nice, the water was so warm and the party never seemed to end. I always love it when I see a pool in the middle of the reception area because people always end up jumping in. But this time, everyone got in. Even me. With my camera. After several shots of tequila. It was one of the most fun receptions I've ever been to.
Lauren and Frank live in London, but if they ever decide to throw another party in Mexico, I want to go. Thanks so much guys for an amazing trip.

Betsy and Hansen are getting married next summer at Betsy's father's home in the mountains of North Carolina. But I caught up with them during their vacation, and found a pretty afternoon to take some photographs on a windy, but warm, day at the beach.

There seems to be a strong connection between Santa Fe, New Mexico (where I am from) and San Francisco (where I live now). Several of my couples live here in the city, but find a reason to go to the high desert to get married. For Ariel and Simon, they got married at one of my favorite outside venues, Pecos National Ruins near Santa Fe. But before the wedding, they got dressed up for portraits and so we went to some places Ariel had scouted earlier. One was even a water tower, which they both climbed up without hesitation just a couple hours before they walked down the aisle.
