Last year, I had the opportunity to second shoot in Topanga, California with my amazing photographer friend, Adam Swift. We often shoot together whenever we have a free weekend. Adam comes to Texas or I go to California. What better way to sharpen shooting skills especially as a second shooter. This is one such wedding I second shot with him.

Introducing a very cool couple, Nikki and Evan. A lovely venue tucked away into the romantic hills of Topanga Canyon, northwest of los Angeles, The 1909 is ideal for couples searching for a space unique to typical wedding venues. Think laid-back, rustic, classic California outdoor wedding. Oh and spectacular views, Did I say spectacular.

All shot with two Leica M(240)’s. Enjoy!

All-Inclusive Wedding Day Storytelling

If you like what you see, reach out! I have a cool English accent; I’m dashing, handsome and funny – so my wife says. Seriously though, I love the craft of photography, I’m a former news photographer and a documentary street photographer. I capture weddings throughout Texas from a fly on the wall perspective. You’ll not notice me. My photos are candid and delightfully artistic with a splash of color and monochrome.
