They say the hardest things to photograph are food and babies/kids.  That’s probably because the people who say that haven’t worked with 8 week young Kayla.  She’s cute, fat (big for her age), very chill, doesn’t mind being photographed naked, and has adorable expressions.

“Hmmm leather…*drool* (literally)”

(random note: I’ve been going through so many wedding images lately,  I decided to work on these baby ones.  I knew I was working on too many wedding images when I was walking my dogs this morning (Oatmeal and Raisin) and I called them Thao and Austin (a newlywed couple I photographed recently)

Briana and Devon had their wedding at the beautiful, quaint, and cozy Shakespeare club located in Pasadena, and I was going to try to speak “Shakespearean” to describe the photos that I put up, but I can’t because, to be frank, I suck with that kind of stuff. English was never my forte.  That’s why I’m a photographer icon smile Meet Briana and Devon (Wedding) So instead I’m going to throw in a few Shakespeare quotes here and there.

“Love from one side hurts, but love from two sides heals.”
William Shakespeare

I like the shooting the preparation stuff because it’s a lot more relaxing, and I get to talk a little bit with the bride before craziness starts at the wedding.

I almost never use this type of ‘selective coloring’ style of post-processing because I think it’s overused and cliche, but for this photo I really think selective coloring suited it the best. What do you think?

Bubbles!

So you’ve heard of people crashing weddings, but have you ever heard of a bride and her bridesmaids crashing another party? Ha! This awesome bride (Briana) went straight across the street where there was a kids birthday party and had a mini pre-party with the folks and kids there. Soooo cool icon smile Meet Briana and Devon (Wedding)

Priceless. For everything else there’s Mastercard.

On the left you have a Rabbi, on the right you have a Catholic Priest. I think this photo would be great for a fill the in the caption contest.

Hm I’d like you to meet Father O’Brian. He’s one of those people that have an amazing ability to draw you in with his gentle, intriguing, magnetic, and calm personality.  I talked to him for less than a minute and I could sense what a great person he was.  He asked me to photograph him and his dog in the near future which I really look forward to.

My bounty is as deep as the sea,
My love as deep; the more I give to thee,
The more I have, for both are infinite.

– William Shakespeare

Now join your hands, and with your hands your hearts.
