Event Photography (The Lights Festival), March 2018

In March of 2018, I attended the Southern California Lights Festival, an emotional experience of family and friends, lantern lighting, music, dancing, eating, celebrating, and writing wishes and hopes to set into the sky.

I worked to capture not only the mood of the event, but the beauty—still and moving—of the lanterns and the people. In this gallery you will see hands, you will see a couple exchanging vows, you will see torches, and you will see love. All images are copyrighted and you can find some on my Instagram page as well.
