Happy Anniversary Ceci and Steve; It’s been five years already!

Every wedding is special. Often I go back and look at photos of a wedding just to cheer myself up. I thought that I would reminisce about the wedding of Ceci and Steve at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History five years ago! Happy anniversary! Since the wedding was so loooong ago, I thought […]

Wedding Dance Video with Exxxplosivo DJ’s

Wedding Dance Medley, featuring Exxxplosivo DJ’s from Isaac Hernandez on Vimeo. I’m working on a new post with photos from Michelle and David’s wedding in Ojai, at Twin Peaks Ranch, catered by SBB Gourmet Catering, coordinated by Donna Romani Events, and DJ’d by DJ THC Electra from Exxxplosivo DJ’s. But there are so many great […]

Lauren and Michael, Santa Barbara Wedding Photography Slideshow

The Wedding of Lauren and Michael from Isaac Hernandez on Vimeo. You may remember this wedding from a previous post, but I had promised Lauren and Michael a slideshow to their music of choice. And here it is. They chose “In My Life” by The Beatles for the first part of this slideshow because that’s […]

Five Fathers for Father’s Day

In honor of all fathers, and all mothers (because you need a mother to make a father), I’m posting some photos from my archives featuring fathers. Happy Father’s Day! Magic Johnson and his daughter. Los Angeles, 1998.Mario Chavez kisses his son across the US/Mexico border. He cannot travel into Mexico because he’s on parole, and […]

Laguna Beach Wedding

I’m a Santa Barbara wedding photographer, and I love it here. And I also love to travel, especially for a wedding. Last spring I went from photographing EcoHeroes in New York straight into photographing a wedding in Laguna Beach. The ceremony was at St. Francis by the Sea, “The American Catholic Church”, a cute tiny building […]

Susan and Jon Engagement Photo Session

Just a few photos from our fun photo shoot in Santa Barbara. I look forward to photographing Susan and Jon’s wedding. I have the best job in the world. Being a wedding photographer I get to entertain people and make them look beautiful all at the same time, all while improving their memories and filling […]

Natural births

At the birth of my children, I gained tremendous amounts of respect for all mothers. If every man in the world was to watch a natural birth, all mothers would be more appreciated and the world would be a better place. I’ve been blessed to photograph a couple of natural births, one in a hospital […]

Weddings make me happy (Inspiration from Elings Park)

“So very beautiful! We looked through the photos again and were so completely overwhelmed. You were able to capture such emotional and joyous moments. We are grateful to you for that. Your strength, no doubt, is your ability to capture “expression” in either one person’s face or in a shared moment between two. More than anything we wanted to […]

Happy Perihelion

For as much as I complain about the commercialization of Christmas, I always love receiving holiday cards from faraway friends, and from those close-by. Sometimes the “cards” come as blog entries, such as this one from my friend and publicist Jeanna Zelin, who went as far as to praise my work as a photographer (you’re too […]

Seventeen dogs, and a pig.

After I painted Yoshi yesterday, I decided to post a collection of dog portraits for dog lovers out there. Some of these photos were actually taken at weddings. I included a couple of paintings, which I did from live animals, not from photographs. I love dogs. If you scroll down, you will also find a pig […]
