A huge huge thanks to Mrs. Patty Mullen for not only being an amazing bride to photograph, but also for submitting our images to a magazine, because now we’re published!

Huzzah! This is great news! I got three photos published on two pages of this magazine. So beautiful. I’m pretty proud of the dominant photo of the jet in the background. This got published in the May issue. I didn’t get it until today because Patty now lives in Germany (which I plan to visit one day), and she’s got quite a life there. But better late than never, and now I have one more publication to add to my list. icon smile Published in Military Spouse Magazine

I have to admit, Military Spouse isn’t the most ‘bridal’ sounding bridal magazine, but it is a bridal magazine, and I’ll take it! Horray! I didn’t photograph the cover, but in case you wanted to see what the magazine looks like here it is. And I haven’t really seen these magazines in book stores, but it’s probably circulated around military bases, air force bases, and navy bases. Military Spouse Magazine today. The Knot Magazine tomorrow. Right?

Meet Cynthia and Reggie. I would tell you how fun this engagement session was, but their faces tell it all.

This engagement session took place in the beautiful city of San Francisco. Although I love southern California, there’s something about San Francisco that I truly love. I think it’s the people, the food, and the (cool) weather.

This San Francisco engagement session ended up at Hooters, where we chowed down on delicious wings and watched The NBA Finals Game 6. Lakers won of course.  In the middle of our dinner a fight almost broke out inside the restaurant, and I think it carried out outside eventually. That situation was a very difficult for me to be in because my limited A.D.D. brain didn’t what to focus on: the food, the finals, or the fight. They were all so exciting. But eventually we devoured the food, the game finished, and the fight dispersed, and the food coma was setting in. So we all took a walk down Pier 39 to burn off some of those calories and walk off the coma. Kinda romantic. Haha. I love it. Thank you Reggie, Cynthia, and Jason for making this such an awesome engagement session.

Although you’ve probably seen my winning photo below, I just got the magazine version of this from American Photo, and of course I am very very excited!!!

So the package comes in this large white mailing folder with some light contents in it. When I held it, I kinda had an idea of what was inside, but I wasn’t sure. For a few moments I was brought back to days where I would wait around for acceptance/rejection letters from college that came in in very freakishly similar folder/envelopes.

Anyways, I know the news isn’t new, but it’s super nice holding a published magazine around with my name on it and a photo that I took in it.

The photo below is the cover of the magazine that I won, I didn’t photograph the cover of the magazine, I’m just showing you in case you run across a Barnes and Noble or Borders and see this magazine and decide to peruse it…because..oh..I don’t know..maybe you’ll want to see my winning photo!! AH!!! just kidding. maybe not.

The weird looking line on the right side of the photo below is where the spread splits. I also had to stitch the photos together because the magazine is bigger than my scanner. American Photo Magazine gave me a very beautiful page and a half for my photo, and a nice little blurb at the bottom icon smile American Photo Magazine Tearsheets!

Hi readership, intern Emilie here. Just helping out with the blog.

Firstly, thanks Erich, for picking me as your new intern! : )

id jump beach Intern Emilie is invading this space.

Secondly, he asked me to blog a little about myself.  Well, I am sort of an art-loving, music-craving, Yoga-doing, vegetarian environmentalist wanna-be.  When I’m at UCI, I host a weekly radio show on which I spin obscure goth rock and punk tracks.  Maybe I sound like an artsy-fartsy cliché, but everything I do and believe, I am really passionate about!

I most enjoy wildlife and animal photography, but occasionally I will take pictures of people.

So to wrap up, I’ll be helping Erich out around and behind the scenes. He’s already taught me a lot of what I know about cameras and Photoshop, so I’m excited for more insight from a new perspective.

And even though this is a blog and not radio, I’m gonna say: stay tuned for more exciting news from Erich!
