Think wet and sandy and sexy. Pretty compelling, isn’t it?

That was my assignment last month when I shot Marty Casey for his Silver Elements Collection. There are sessions that go so perfectly you feel like the stars are aligned and the day is charmed – this was one of those sessions. Every set up blew me away.

Honestly, I get to see my vision turn into beautiful reality all the time – that’s not new – that’s my job! But rarely is it quite so beautiful…

  1. Hey Jaime! It was the Crystal Pier in Pacific Beach. You know the one with the hotel with little cottages you can rent, and sleep over the ocean. Beautiful spot!
