David Toms shoots the Urban Soul Orchestra

As a string ensemble that bridges the divide between classical music, jazz and pop, the Urban Soul Orchestra is made up of a collective of classically trained artists that bring their genre right into the 21st century.

It may not be all to your taste, but there will be some amazing revelations to be had as you fill your treasure trove with musical gems that have the power to awe and inspire.

Costa del Sol wedding photography by the lake

This rural area near the foothills of the Sierra Nevada proved to be a fairytale setting for a wedding. The sun poured a soft golden hue on everything, making my job so much easier, since photography really is just painting with light.
