Here’s a few images from a wedding I photographed in 2012 at the Oceano Hotel in Half-Moon Bay with bay area couple, Eric and Cathleen.

Forty weddings. That’s the number of weddings I photographed in 2011, which was both my goal and the maximum I would shoot. I’m thankful to God, my couples, my friends, and my family for a rewarding year.  I have taken much of December off to be with my family, which has been refreshing. 2012 is already filling up, and I have many goals to fire up.  I’m really looking forward to challenging myself artistically. I’m going to lock myself in some distant cabin for a few days to map out, vision cast, dream, pray, think, and write out all that is in my head (or not in my head yet), maybe massage some surface ideas floating around up in the attic.  More on that later…

Here is a wedding from September in Half Moon Bay, California, at the high class wedding resort, the Oceano Hotel and Spa.  Outstanding service and wedding venue for sure (voted best wedding venue of 2010)!  Justin and Lindsey married and exchanged vows with so much expressive emotion on their wedding day.  It was hard not to tear up because of the special candid moments that we were able to capture.  We’re glad to have been a part of their day.

I haven’t been able to keep up on the blog with the weddings I have photographed, but I have had many inquiries requesting a blog for this Oceano wedding.  So, without further ado…
