No big.

This is a photo from the first wedding I ever shot when I was a sophomore in college { at Brooks in Santa Barbara } and I pretty much think it rocks. To be honest, I didn't know then that I wanted to specialize in weddings so I went on with fashion and product photography and majored in digital imaging. I'm so glad I did because all of those things really help me out now. But let's be honest, it rocks even years later. I saw on twitter the other day that the Becker is the Nickelback of wedding photography. I loved it and laughed then began to think what I would be. Possibly the Carrie Underwood, the Rihanna, the soon to be power house that is Mariah Carey. What do you all think? Discuss.

New Work: Fine'N'Funky Newsletters

This week I decided to do my photo shoot for the newsletter inside my home studio because, well, it's freezing outside. So here it is... some new painted on jeans and a Juicy purse that I die for and if you want to subscribe click here. My model's name is Shirley Chao and we had so much fun chatting during the shoot and we even have a date to do bikrahm together next week :) Happy Sunday!

Louis Love

This is pretty cool.

Louis Vuitton turned the lens on renowned photographer, Annie Leibovitz recently, when the company asked her to be the subject of its next ad.

Vuitton communication director Antoine Arnault says, "She's a real, pure, 100 percent artist. We've always been very committed to her, to her talent…. She just gets in [her subjects'] souls. This campaign has really become almost a saga."

Though hesitant at first, Annie ultimately accepted, asking only that she get to pick one famous person to appear with her. Her choice: legendary ballet dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov.

The end result pictures Annie staring up at Baryshnikov as though she were about to photograph him, looking pensively at her subject from her seat on the ground next to her monogram Louis Vuitton bag. The tagline reads, "The journey of a star, captured in a flash."Arnault says the photo caputres Leibovitz's signature "moment of quiet and calm," while shooting a subject.We love it because Annie has worked with Vuitton for years, and because the bag she's promoting is one she really does use. Plus, it sheds light on another aspect of the fashion world - those who make it all happen.
