Today’s Bride Magazine | Our Editorial Country Creamery Shoot aka California Couture

Just about a week ago we had a chance to celebrate the launch of the new look for San Francisco’s longest running bridal magazine Today’s Bride.  It was a wonderful evening held at the Winery SF on Treasure Island.  It was a great location and the view of the city was crystal clear and amazing.  MB Wedding Design and Events transformed the space in to a wonderful party venue. I had so much fun catching up with friends from all over the bay area.

This year along with Tia Reagan of Freebird Productions, I had the honor of shooting an editorial for Today’s Bride Magazine. The shoot started like you would imagine on a dairy farm in Petaluma, too early according to my clock.  Yes we were up before the rooster crowed but, what was so exciting for us was that the morning shot came out almost exactly like we had envisioned with a beautiful morning misty fog kind of feel. (If only the rays of light could of worked it’s way through it would of been a perfect dream).  Yet, we loved it anyway and the first shot set the tone for the rest of the day as we attacked the beautiful dresses that we would be featuring.

We were fortunate to work with some of the best in the wedding industry when putting our shoot together.  Most of the beautiful dresses you see were borrowed from Gabrielle’s Bridal Atelier in Campbell with the exception of the very first dress in the misty morning fog. This dress was from a very talented designer in San Francisco,  Amy Kuschel. I really enjoyed working with both shops they were so accomodating and friendly. Twigs and Honey, one of my favorite head peace designers, supplied many of the over the top adorable headpieces. Flower Divas  out did themselves with the beautiful and country flower bouquets while, Really Bad Kitty on etsy did an amazing job on the farm animal broache and button bouquet.  The amazingly cute and fresh models Tucker and Annette were from Scout Model and Talent Agency out of San Francisco. They were so amazing together you never would of guessed they weren’t a real couple.  Last, one of our favorites,  Luke Goodman Cinematography filmed the video of our day.  It was a great team and couldn’t be more pleased with the results.  Below is the video and to see more of the photographs from this shoot visit Today’s Bride online, pick up a copy of the magazine, or there is more to view on my website under Editorial.

Opening Day for Spring | LaCrosse and Baseball begin

It doesn’t matter what the calendar says, but for the Johnson’s this weekend Spring started.  It was a weekend packed full of opening days for little league and lacrosse.  People always ask me what I do on weekends when I’m not shooting.  Well below you get a little view in to my world and one of the many ways my weekends are spent. It’s being the cheerleader of my two very talented boys.  Go A’s, go Chiefs!
