Picture This Blog bio picture


Thanks for checking out our new blog! My husband Paul and I are multiple international award winning photographers based out of Central California (Bakersfield). I have had an extreme love for art and photography since I was very young, so a friend trusted my ability to cover her wedding back in 1987, and I've been shooting weddings ever since! I started "Picture This" in 1988, after graduating from college with a Bachelor's degree in Art, with Photography as my emphasis. Paul started winning awards first, with his unique style as the second shooter, and retired from teaching high school English to start shooting full time in 2003. I feel fortunate to get to travel up and down the California Coast, and to have traveled to Italy, Mexico, and various places in between, to do what I love most--shoot fabulous weddings! We would like for you to get to know us better, so please bookmark this site and check in from time to time to see what we've been up to, and catch a glimpse of some recent work. If you're an animal lover, like we are, you may enjoy getting to know our four legged "children", which we will be posting soon. Please visit our website to see many of our timeless, award winning images that have been published in books and magazines, and to get additional information, and be sure to email us any time!

A Few Award Winners and Favorites from a New Image Book I Created

I just put together a small book of 50 favorite and award winning images.  Below are a few that are included.  The book also includes a few images I’ve done recently on two of the movie sets on which I’ve had the pleasure to shoot.

Paul shot this award winning image in Rome, Italy, where we shot an amazing wedding.

St. Francis Church wedding–Laura & Mario

Here are a few favorite images from a fabulous wedding we shot last October.  Laura and Mario are such an awesome couple!  She is beautiful, inside and out, and looks stunning in every image!  If you’d like to see more from this wedding, check out Paul’s profile page on Facebook.  Details Party Rentals completely outdid themselves on the reception site.
