I drove from Santa Cruz, California all the way to Portland, Oregon for this night. Shooting right besides my favorite photographer, Anni Graham, hearing both of our cameras echo each others, as we are moved to tears by the EPIC surprise (scroll down to find out) was a dream come true. A "pinch me" moment. A reminder of why my passion lies in photography.
Valentina and Ozzie also have a love that seeps out of these photographs, enabling us to capture some real magic.
