Alive Again!

What a trip! Wayne and I had a great diving experience in Indonesia (our third trip there!), but this was an unusual adventure for me. I injured myself in the Hong Kong airport (don’t ask) on the WAY to our 10-day diving getaway. So I was dealing with a deep gash on my knee, which I later found out had burst the bursa sack. I kept it packed with antibacterial cream, but on our last day my whole leg enlarged with infection, which later became systemic. New travel turf for me included health clinics in Manado, Indonesia and Singapore and seeing things from the perspective of a wheelchair-bound traveler. Glad that’s over! I am back to 97% (still dealing with the bursa issue), but I can do almost everything like normal now.

Here are some of my favorite underwater images:

Off to Indonesia

Thanks for checking in with me. My husband and I are heading to Indonesia for some scuba diving and photography. We’ll be diving at Bunaken and the Lembeh Straits and visiting northern Sulawesi as well as Singapore. I hope to check my email occassionally at internet cafes, but won’t be traveling with my laptop.

Selamat tinggal

I’ve recently shot some engagement sessions with some great couples. I can’t wait to shoot their weddings this fall! Sites include the Grand Island Mansion in the Delta and the River Mill in Stockton. Both are beautiful venues.

Here are some of my favorites from Megan and David and Brooke and Kenny’s sessions.

Air Force Wedding at St. Mary’s Chapel, Rocklin California

What a great weekend wedding! I feel honored to have participated in Ashely and Patrick’s wedding at the Historic St. Mary’s Chapel in Rocklin. Ashely was such a beautiful bride and FUN! Patrick and his 8 groomsmen were also very photogenic and made the day a blast. Patrick is in the Air Force along with 3 of his brothers, so they wore their dress blues and we held a few saber arches set up throughout the evening. The reception followed at another historic venue, the Blue Goose Fruit Shed in Loomis. What a great spot! Here are some photos from the day.

Tanya and Scott’s Garden Wedding

Welcome to my blog! I’ve been really busy with wedding photography lately, but I’m finding time to get in some windsurfing, so life is good. Here are a few images from my last wedding in Lodi, California at Amorosa Inn and Gardens.Scott and Tanya at their Lodi wedding at Amorosa Inn and Gardens
