Welcome to my blog!

Hi There,

A Film Noir Photoshoot

Since living in LA I've always wanted to create a Film Noir-inspired photoshoot.
You know....the dangerously sexy dame flirting with the whisky-swilling gumshoe. All moodily lit of course : )
As luck would have it I was recently house-sitting at THE perfect location....a fabulous 1930's house in the Los Feliz Hills. One terrace even had a backdrop of downtown LA.
I managed to persuade Vickey and Tom to discover their acting chops for their engagement shoot.....take a look at how they did here in the slideshow.....with some very sexy music...

A Veuve-Clicquot Summer

It doesn't get much better than sipping champagne on a beautiful Sunday afternoon while watching South American men on horseback!
Veuve-Cliquot sponsored the matches summer-long at the Santa Barbara Polo Club.
Sunny yellow banners and vip tents brightened up the playing field, thanks to BrownHot Events. And if you found a cork on said field while divet-stomping....a case of champagne was yours for the taking!
Sadly, labor day marks the end of Summer......wonder what they'll sponsor next?

Wedding At The Ritz-Carlton

I love it when my clients have their wedding at a Ritz-Carlton hotel. Whether the budget is big or small you know it is always going to an elegant affair with impeccable service and attention to detail.
Jennifer and Sonny's wedding in Laguna-Niguel was perfect.....even late-afternoon cloudy skies simply added dramatic effect!
I loved the nod to Sonny's heritage with the tiny hindu statues at the ceremony, and Jennifer's bejewelled shoes.
Their lovely day can be seen here in it's entirety.
