A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to shoot at UCLA, which was cool. But not all that exciting because I’ve been to UCLA many times. I have not however, been to USC! So I was really excited to be able to shoot Desiree and Claudell at USC.  Lucky for me Desiree used to be some sort of tour guide so as we were walking around I got to learn a thing or two about the campus.  The vibe is very different from UCLA, I’d describe USC as a little more serious than UCLA. Hm, yeah that’s it. I read that USC beat UCLA in its recent football game. Congrats to USC! But Claudell tells me USC lost to Arizona. So sorry about that USC. icon sad Meet Desiree and Claudell (Engagement)

Photographically, this isn’t the greatest photo. But let me tell you! This one man band whose name is Danny held his own all by himself with a guitar and ukelele. He played amazing music! Anyone who listens to his music would agree. And you know he’s good when everyone (including me) went up to him to ask for a business card. Not only is he talented in singing and playing the guitar, but according to his business card he’s also a swing dance instructor and a gondolier. In case you don’t know what a gondolier is, it’s one of those guys who row a gondola (skinny Italian boats). His music can be found on myspace.com/dannymaika.

These next two photos are what I call brotherly love.

I love this guy, and I don’t even know his name. During his toast he said he cut his shoulder length hair just for Erwin. That’s love man.

This is my good friend Elaine! She’s Erwin’s sister and she’s doing her best not to fall apart emotionally while giving her toast.  Elaine and I used to take advertising class together, and we’d be big procrastinators in our homework, that’s how we got along so well.

The guy wearing a fedora hat is the father of the groom. I don’t know many Asian dads that can pull off a fedora hat, he is the man.
