  • About The Guy With The Camera:

    Hello my name is Andrew... and I shoot people! ;-) What can I say... I have a silly sense of humor and a passion for photography! I love my job because it allows me to be an artist, a social butterfly, an explorer, a geek, a gamer, a comedian, a traveler, and best of all a family man!

    My wife Joslynn is my business partner... I'm the artist and she is the business minded one. She keeps the artist in me with at least a couple toes grounded in reality. We have two beautiful daughters who were born almost a decade a part... which turned out to be so awesome. Our ten year old is my buddy, we go to movies, play games and have so much fun together, and our new baby girl can just smile and melt my heart! I am so blessed to have all of these beautiful girls in my life!

    As for myself, I am constantly learning and diving deeper into the world of photography. I read every book I can find on shooting and camera techniques. In fact, sometimes I feel like that little kid on Christmas morning, I read a couple pages and then I just have to try it out. I often times find myself setting up my gear at all hours of the day or night, just to try something out that I read about in a book. I truly believe that as a photographer, as long as I am passionate about what I do, am always learning, growing and further developing my style, without losing site of why photos are so important, I will just continue evolving into a better photographer! If at some point I feel there is nothing more to learn, then in my opinion, the passion will have burned out. As a wedding and engagement photographer, I am constantly surrounded by love, excitement, passion and a zest for life. These qualities are contagious, and because of this I know that I will never lose the passion for photography.

Avila Beach Pier | Old Timey Black and White

I love seeing the old black and white images of Avila and Port San Luis in the restaurants down in Avila Beach… so when I was going through some images I took of the pier, I just had to give it that old timey black and white look!

Mornings with Charlie

So it’s been a long time since I’ve blogged anything. Most of our friends, family and clients know why… but for the rest of you, the short answer is Charlie! Charlie is Joslynn’s and mine miracle baby. She was born July 1st, 2014 with Hypo-Plastic Left Heart Syndrome or HLHS, which means she was born without the left two chambers in her heart. You can read all about Charlie and her journey on her website www.heartsforcharlie.com beginning with her birth on July 1st, her first open heart surgery on July 7th, 2014, several other procedures and blood transfusions, a second open heart surgery on December 5th, 2014 and a long recovery during the holidays and the early part of 2015! So now I am finally settling into my groove as a 100% full time stay at home dad with Charlie and her 2 year old sister Sawyer aka Monkey and their 11 year old sister Makayla aka Bug. The best part of finding some calm time in the midst of all these storms is that I get to spend my mornings with Charlie and her sisters… so to kick off the first of hopefully many new blog posts, here are a few photos from my recent mornings with Charlie!
