another SWEET couple :)
this is another wedding i shot on a chilly day. It’s definitely a real challenge for the wedding photographer to keep a good flow of things during the shoot while covering all important images. For myself as the photographer it’s hard to shoot additional random creative shots when the bride is cold. I feel so bad that i wanna wrap things up quickly. There’s definitely a fine line…do i spend more time to cover more shots while the bride is clearly very cold or do i cover just the required so that the photoshoot isn’t ruined for them because they’re freezing to death. I find it’s important to mentally prep yourself when you know that it’ll be cold.
wendy and joel are super laid back. I really love meeting couples who care more about the fact that they’re getting married than over how they look or what their table setting looks like or any of the other things that add to a wedding but don’t necessarily MAKE the wedding. I especially like meeting brides who are laid back and maybe this is because I’m like that :P wendy is super cool because she wore nike’s with her dress.
major props go to the bride and bridesmaids as it was a super cold day but they toughed it out. congrats guys!!!!!
so with the wedding season slowing down it gives me more time on my plate to work on projects that i’ve wanted to as well as do fun things! It’s so great to have this down time to recoup and re-energize. Here are some things that’s been going on in my life.
i love this shot. not only cause it’s a cool crop but because of the old man’s knobbly hands. Hands tell so much about a person and personally i love taking note of someone’s hands when i shake them….”are these workers hands?” “are these hands with nimble fingers that type away on a keyboard?” “are these hands that are not afraid to get dirty?”. I know they’re random thoughts but interesting nonetheless. Personally my hands are extremely calloused from rock climbing and have to be extra careful not to ruin peoples silk shirts hahahha.
anyhoo, this is the end of my random post.
have you seen kanye west’s new music video? he seems a little strange to me but he definitely is creative and this video inspired me with his cool imagery. I absolutely love the tones of the video! I pulled out some of the images that stood out to me. The video is quite painterly and poetic.
If you haven’t seen it yet go check it out. It’s over 30mins though so make sure you have time to watch the whole thing :P

i loved the style of domico and ray’s wedding at miller lash house. another second shooting gig with claudia…i got to meet this sweet couple. It’s such a blessing to shoot weddings but it i feel even more joyful to shoot when they couple is super sweet and considerate. With both the sweetness of the couple as well as the fairytale wedding it was so easy to shoot their wedding. A lot of my shots are back lit and recently i’ve been meaning to use a reflector to balance the lighting and when claud had hers in her trunk i took the opportunity to whip it out during the “prep” shoot because the room was super dark and the natural light coming from the window was super bright. It turned out really well!!!! It’s my sweet shot from their wedding. I must say miller lash is one of my top 10 venues :)
wedding with claudia:
you could be a bum but a well fitted suit will make any man look like a million bucks. I never knew shooting weddings would improve my fashion sense but now i can see the difference between a well fitted vs. a badly fitted suit. Recently i picked up the Style Manual by GQ. I looooove men in suits so i drooled over every page. It was really interesting for me to read the difference in collar styles and also about the different elements that make a suit a suit! If you’re a man and you wanna learn more about suits then pick an issue this month!
