Hey friends!

I’ve wanted to host an IG meetup forever, so here it is!

Sunday, February 12th, 2017
3:30pm
Arts District, DTLA
#IGMeetDTLA

**Update: I’m super excited to be partnering with one of my favorite tools for this meet up: JPEGmini! It’s a computer app that decreases your photo’s giant file size without decreasing resolution or quality. WHUT. I’ll have discount codes for everyone that shows up! WHUTTTT??

WHAT IS AN INSTAGRAM MEETUP?
An Instagram meetup is a group of photogs (or photo enthusiasts) getting together to casually shoot, explore a cool area, exchange tips, and hang! You’re especially encouraged to take and trade photos of each other- who doesn’t need some good profile pic material?! Then post your favorites on IG with the hashtag #IGMeetDTLA, so we can all check them out.

DO I HAVE TO BE A PRO PHOTOG / BRING A “REAL” CAMERA?
Heck no! No experienced required. Bring whatever camera you have. Bring your phone!

WHERE TO MEET?
Inside the brand new Arts District Park on the SW corner of 5th & Hewitt (across from Urth Caffé). We’ll meet there at 3:30, and I’m happy to chat/answer photography questions! From there we’ll split off, walk around and shoot.

WHERE TO END?
At sundown (or whenever you’re done shooting!), we’ll regroup at Everson Royce Bar on the SW corner of 7th & Mateo, to hang out and get some dranks!

PARKING?
Make sure to check traffic conditions on your route to the meet up and plan accordingly- it’s on Grammy day! There is tons of street parking in the section of DTLA that is the Arts District, and much of it is free. However, it’s a popular spot on the weekends, so give yourself some time. Just make sure to read all signs carefully!

SPREAD THE WORD!
Invite your friends! Here’s some options:
– Post the pic below on social media with the hashtag #IGMeetDTLA
– Invite friends to this public Facebook Event
– Retweet this tweet

See you there! XOXO,

Abi has a powerful voice, personality and sense of personal style! I travel around the US with her this fall to document her shows and tour behind the scenes. She supported Pentatonix with Us The Duo on the US portion of their World Tour. We were accompanied by her talented band, Carissa (MUA extraordinaire), and her sweet parents/managers.

PENTATONIX:

I’ve never seen a more supportive and proud dad than Abi’s. This post is dedicated to Don, who is loved and missed.

I’m thankful to be working with the talented Evan Ambrose and Nate Lotz as Blacktop Queen comes onto the scene in LA. They release their amazing, first singles last year, and have a lot on the way in 2017!

What do Hollywood tour busses, giant pool floaties, and gold chains have in common? This promo shoot with Captain Cuts. Jax even had a cameo! These producers-slash-resident-DJs of legendary Emo Nite LA are stepping out as artists on Epic Records. One single out so far, and it’s a smash. More from the Cuts coming soon!

Did some promos in the studio for my friend Mike (aka Zookëper), an LA producer/DJ/remixer extraordinaire! I’ve always got confetti laying around.

It was a huge honor to photograph my dear friends Lisa and Shane’s wedding. I was actually present the first time they hung out a few years ago, when group of us were playing Cards Against Humanity for the first time! And the rest is history.

I knew Lisa’s amazing sense of style, plus some of OKC’s top wedding vendors, would result in a gorgeously designed day. Be sure to check out the wedding film by John & Rachel Dewberry at the end of this post!

I caught up with these buds for a speed shoot during their #HotlineSpringTour earlier this year in Hollywood! Here are some of my favorite studio portraits of Magic Man‘s Alex and Sam.
