California here I come! Right back where I started from!

Ok, I'm not moving back to Cali or anything. Just coming back for a week and a half full of photography! I'm really excited!

I'll be there October 14-26. Here are the shoots so far:

-A charity golf tournament for one of my favorite non-profits (and former employer) World Vision International.

-A beautiful wedding in Temecula wine country!

-An amazing wedding in Pasadena!

-A few head-shot sessions around LA and OC

If you are interested in scheduling a session with me, let me know because times are booking quickly.

Available times:
Oct 18 - late afternoon to evening
Oct 20-22 - anytime
Oct 25 - late afternoon to evening

Obviously, I'm excited to see my family and friends as well! I've been in Colorado for a little over 3 months now and I have to tell you, I really don't miss California at all (except for family and friends of course!). Fall is here in Colorado and I love it!  Snow on the Rockies, leaves changing, a chill in the air letting us know that winter is right around the corner.  It's great!

I'm looking forward to my California visit.  It will be busy, but great fun with great people.  For those in California, I hope to see you when I'm there!

Jarod and Megan's Wedding

Here are some photos from Jarod and Megan's wedding in Utah.  It was such an amazing time with amazing people.
The beautiful couple!

Megan was gorgeous!  This looks like it should be the cover of a bridal magazine!

The guys in the tavern.

The lovely ladies.

The flower girls were so cute!

The guys decided to do a shotski! Bottoms up!


Of course the ladies wouldn't be outdone.  Here they are braving it.  I love Megan's look here!

Megan and Jarod...dancing the night away.

If you are ever in the Heber Valley of Utah (just south of Park City), check out The Blue Boar Inn.

Behind door #2...A New Car!!

I would have loved to have won a new car in a game show, but that didn't happen.  I did however purchase a new vehicle last night.

Being a new Colorado resident, I realized I needed a heavier all wheel drive or 4x4 vehicle.  Our Volkswagen Passat just wasn't cutting it (in more ways than one).

Today I had to take the car out and snap a few photos.  It is black of course, I am Brian Black you know!

Oh, and if you need a Ford or Chevy and are in Colorado, go see Adam over at Burt Ford in Parker!

This is our new 2009 Ford Edge SEL AWD.  One of the great features is the Sync system.  It is an amazing voice activated system for controlling your bluetooth enabled phone and has incredible iPod integration.  I highly recommend it!

High Fashion Shoot - Julie

Well, I decided to do a spontaneous high fashion shoot. The lovely Julie was kind enough to oblige and as you can see, we had a lot of fun.

I think this is something that will definitely be happening again. I would love to get into fashion photography, but my recent move from Los Angeles to Denver doesn't really look like a step in the right direction. Who knows, maybe I can help make Denver a fashion capital? ....stop laughing, anything is possible!

Abigail's 1st birthday party!


Well, it's hard to believe my little niece is already 1 year old! I'm sure going to miss this little peanut when I move to Colorado, but I'm sure there will be lots of visits.

The food was great, the weather was absolutely gorgeous, and Abby had a great time! See for yourself...

It should be a great time!

I love the Beach


I went to Laguna Beach on Saturday. My wife and I met up with our cousin and a few friends for brunch at Las Brisas (which I highly recommend).

I spent the rest of the day bumming around the beach until later that night when we went to celebrate a friends birthday and see the band Upstart play at Mozambique. If you've never seen them play, you're missing out!

Enjoy the images!

Jody & Kate


I was really looking forward to this wedding. The groom, Jody, and I were in a performing group together a while back and when I heard he wanted me to photograph his wedding, I was honored to. It was a bonus having it at the Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel! What a beautiful place. His bride, Kate, was beautiful and so great to get to know better. This couple really knows how to have fun (as you'll see further down).

Kate's dress was really stunning!


And of course the shoes and flowers were great!




Put it all together and you have a beautiful bride.


Jody was looking sharp. I really dug his suit!


You've gotta love the little things. Those stories between two people that bring back memories of times together.


When you put these two together, they sure know how to have fun and laugh. It was so fun being with them on their special day.





It had been overcast the days leading up to the wedding. That day the sun came out literally minutes before the ceremony and we were blessed with a beautiful sunset while we were taking pictures.


So, we went down to the beach to take some pictures. These were on the way down.



We got to the sand and the fun continued!





On our way back up, we saw some surfers and one of them graciously lent their surfboard.


A special wedding toast.


Did I mention the sunset was amazing?


I love being able to experience other's love for each other. This picture says it all. What a wonderful day! Congrats Jody and Kate!
