Pam and John's Engagements

Pam and John contacted me through Lindy Fuller, a good friend of mine. They came over from Texas and we spent the day taking some sweet stuff. What is amazing though is that the one day they decide to come to "Sunny" Santa Barbara, Yep you guessed it, it was raining. But we didn't let that stop us. We went full force into it knowing we may get a little wet. However, halfway through the day it stopped and gave us the best lighting ever.

So through it all they put up with my mind at work, placing them in all different poses and locations that gave us these awesome photos. Nothing like closing out the year with an awesome photo shoot!! Love it.

I love it when the couple likes to have a sense of humor with me!!

No I didn't Photoshop that birdy in!! Nice!

And in closing I wanted to say thank you to all the people that have supported me and given me inspiration.. This has been an amazing year and I wouldn't be here without God and my "AMAZING" friends, Mario Villalobos, Timothy M. Knittel, Josh Newton, Micheal Thompson, my Awesome Lady Nicole Corrales, Mom and Pop, my brother Johnhouston, Todd Pulliam, Sam Fluitt, Kian Ameli, Bobby Earle, and many more that will get mad that they aren't on this list but just know that I care about all of you. Thank you !! So long 2009 see you all next year!

Gorgeous Sunset

Another wonderful Sunset.. WOW!!... Just sitting out there watching the haze and the colors build as the sun went down today was awesome. Santa Barbara is pretty amazing at times. Everyday is amazing and we should all go enjoy the nature that is around us no matter where we are. It is there everyday, take advantage of it.

Take some time out of your day and look at the sunset, take some time to marvel at what God has created here and appreciate it. It could be taken away at any second.!!
Here you go. If anybody wants some of these just ask I'll email some to you.

Oh YA.. Got it!!.. POW.

"Sportin the new dew". Well ok it's not that much different but it's new to me.
I guess it would be better to say Nice trim!! =)

I don't know why but I though I would turn this one Black & White. Even though there is no color the scene is still awesome somehow. Somewhat eerie but I love it.

Soooooooooo...This post is directly related to Josh Newton and Bobby Earle's trip to Thailand which you can see by clicking the link.. So if either of you are reading this, I can have fun too!! I want to show you that you can have just as much fun in the U.S. as you can in Thailand. ;)

P.S. I love you guys and wish I could be there.

Anyways, I went to Disneyland with Nicole and here family this weekend and it was a blasty blast. We all had a ton of fun and these are just some of the ones I grabbed. Though none of us are hanging from a train or swimming in the bluest of waters =( we can still say, Hhhhmmmmm That was way more fun than going out of the country (Again I am not angry, just stating the facts here) to see exotic places and play with monkeys and such. =)

Ok Ok enough rambling.. This was an amazing time and it will happen again.. And not to steal Bobby's idea but if any of you that read this want to make our own "Totally Rad Photo Trip at D-land" I am sure we could blow their shots out of the water!!... LOL JK

I have to say that Hailey in the big photo looks like Jermaine from Flight of the Conchords!

So Cute!

Face Painting time who wants some!

Ya I have a snake on my Face!!... I am sure that Bobby and Josh are playing with real snakes but a real man paints a snake on his face at Disneyland! Boooommm That's how it's done.


Do you see any resemblance?

This is my Favorite!

Toby and Vanessa Full Post!!

To start off, this wedding was so AMAZING!!! I loved every part of it.. Toby and Vanessa were such a cool couple and had their time to shine on Saturday =). It was awesome to meet two meet people with hearts of gold come together on such a spectacular. Their wedding was in Santa Barbara on the beach and we couldn't have asked for better weather. Both sides of their family were so welcoming to me and allowed me to do my job and I am proud to say that I loved shooting their wedding, it was an honor.

So here you go here are just a few of the shots from Saturday and there will be more on my facebook so feel free to hop on over and check out more of the day! Thanks to all that were involved!!


And my favorite part of the night the First Dance!!
