I love the beach!! I love it so much, me and my wife had our ceremony at the beach. So when Daisy contacted me to have her engagement session at the beach I was totally up for it! We met Manhattan Beach, Ca and had an awesome time shooting. These two are a couple of goofballs and the way they treat each other, is sweet. I am also priviliged to photograph their wedding in October 2013. Enjoy!
I was able to photograph and get to know Maria and Melecio this weekend, and I must say it was definitely a fun time with Melecio and Maria's bright personalities. Uptown Whittier is their current neighborhood, so it seemed fitting to photograph them in their own neighborhood. Melecio has a cycling hobby but enjoys chill rides with Maria on their vintage Schwinn cruiser, which he personally restored. Take a look at some of their photos!
This might just be the most memorable end of Summer. Today, September 21, 2012, the Space Shuttle Endeavour made its final flight. However that flight was not its typical jet-fuel-blazing launch into the final frontier! Endeavour's final flight was more of a show-off cruise through infamous landmarks from the Bay Area to Southern California. "Piggy-backed" on top of a modified 747 Boeing aircraft carrier, Endeavour flew by Cali's state Capitol, Golden Gate Bridge, headed South to fly over Malibu, Santa Monica, Getty Center, Hollywood Sign, Griffith Observatory, LA City Hall, Jet Propulsion Lab, Disneyland.....just to name a few! Thousands and thousands of people lined streets near LAX, at the Observatory and other recommended viewing spots, I on the other hand, had my personal viewing spot. To avoid traffic and street closures I was reminded of one of the many spots I've photographed that had a great view of the building skyline of Downtown. I headed over there: Kearney Street in Boyle Heights. I arrived 40 minutes early, since the flight was delayed. Gave me time to play with my camera settings, however as I stared at the buildings I coincidentally glanced over to my left (south) and from behind the roof tops I see it, Endeavour in all its retiring glory, atop the 747, escorted by two F-16 fighter jets! Awesome! I had to snap myself out of shock-mode and start photographing! I was able to capture history! I was in complete awe and amazement had come over me, I was speechless, but not image-less.
Endeavour was the last of its kind. Approved in 1987, delivered in 1991, first flight in 1992, retired in 2011, Endeavour has made 25 completed missions into space and back. Endeavour will be towed through the streets of LA next month to its final resting area and new home at The Science Center in LA. It will be a lasting memory to the end of my 2012 Summer season. Awesome.
Fernando and Nancy welcomed me into their home to discuss the opportunity to hire me as their photo booth provider, I quickly was able to see what great attitudes they have and how welcoming they are. I definitely wanted to work with them since they seemed like such an awesome couple. They hosted their reception at The Grand in Long Beach, Ca, a very elegant venue! Mariachis, a DJ, and a full Banda set the festive mood for the night! Thank you Fernando and Nancy for giving me the honor of having us as your photo booth team!

I met Alyssa and Brian on Instagram, through there photos I could see they're a really cool pair! Once I met them this Saturday I was able to see, in person, what an awesome couple they truly are. Hearing how they met, their love story, and plans for the soon coming wedding in April, filled me with excitement and I felt honored to be part of the process through photography. We met at Grand Park near downtown LA, took a few casual shots, had a wardrobe change, then worked our way down to City Hall building on Spring street. Here's a preview of the session!
