Dapper Day shoot with Dolly Couture Preview


After a whirlwind weekend in Anaheim at the Dapper Day Fall Expo, I was so stoked to get to the blog and share some images.  Not only did I get to share a table with Dolly Couture!

As a working photographer, I capture thousands of images in a year and it's very hard to actually choose what you feel is your best work for the year. Some stand out quite powerfully as something you're proud of, others you love but you as an artist are not sure if they share the message you're trying to convey.
