July 12, 2010 Meet Lucas (Baby)

The first time I saw Lucas, he looked like someone I know. Me. Yeah, he actually kinda looked a lot like me when I was about his age. I told that to Nancy and Garret, and then I told them to rest assured he’s going to grow up looking very handsome. icon smile Meet Lucas (Baby)

I love that Lucas didnt any trouble warming up to me. Well he didn’t really like me, but he definitely didn’t dislike me so that’s all I can ask for if I’m taking photos of a baby. I loved that I could follow him around, and since he (like many other babies) is so young, and they don’t have that social awkwardness if people are too close. Babies are too cute to be photographed from far away icon smile Meet Lucas (Baby)

Continuing on from part 1, this wedding was beautiful and very very very exciting. I will explain. This day landed on the same day as the NBA Finals! Many of the guests at the reception (mostly men) were either staring at their phone or absent because they would be in the next room over glued to the screen. At one point, Michael was guilty of this too icon smile Chona and Michael are Married in Half Moon Bay Part II (Wedding) Haha. And of course the Lakers won, so Michael actually had two things to celebrate that day, his wedding and the Lakers Championship! I was guilty for finding myself zipping back and forth (occasionally) from anyone who looked like they had updated scores on their phone.

All in all, this was a beautiful, intimate, and fun wedding. Thank you Chona and Michael for having a beautiful wedding in Half Moon Bay. I love traveling!

I had the wonderful opportunity to second shoot for my good friend Nathan Nowack at Kim and James’s Wedding in San Diego. Thank you Nathan, you are the baddest double r-strap wielding wedding photographer that I know.

This beautiful ceremony took place in an intimate garden ceremony with the Marina off to the side, which I thought was the coolest thing ever. Beautiful sunshine and cool weather made shooting this wedding a breeze icon smile Meet Kim and James (Wedding)

What I love about this wedding the most were the personalities and emotions. I know when a couple is a genuinely awesome couple when I find myself about to cry during the toasts. Yeah, I’m emotional, so what? There were also super cute kids that are at this wedding, I spent some time following them around like a stalker. It was good exercise, and they were super photogenic.

What was kind of interesting is the groom James is from Hawaii, so I think this San Diego wedding is considered a destination wedding for him. Speaking of Hawaii, I’m leaving next week to Hawaii!!! If you want to see where else I will be this year click here.
