San Diego, CA

One of the most amazing sunsets I have ever seen.  These, combined with the beauty of the west coast made for some stunning photography.  These were taken on October 2012 on a trip to San Diego, CA.  It was quite a thrill using a DSLR for the first time.  After taking these shots, I was sold on Photography!

Grupo Vanidoso

Grupo Vanidoso at Cursilerias Bar and Grill in Mcallen, TX 09/18/2014.  

Vanidoso is a group of very talented individuals with a passion for Tropical Music in the Rio Grande Valley.  Combining the sounds of grupero music with personalized musical touch has mixed in a soft, romantic sound that pleases crowds and brings a beautiful musical experience.

This night Vanidoso received a great ovation and the crowd refused to let them off the stage without an extra song.  "Otra, Otra. Otra"......


Happy birthday Amberly!  Your party was just beautiful!  It was so nice seeing so many people that love you come and celebrate this very special day.  Thank you for inviting me to capture this moment for you.  Best wishes always!

I had the opportunity to work with this wonderful couple.  They are really looking forward to their wedding, so much so that they have a countdown to the date.  When I took these photos, the count was 102 more days.....until the start of the rest of their life.
