December 24, 2010 My first Laker Game :)

I have been to a few Clipper games, but I’ve never been to a Laker game, mainly because they’re expensive and I can’t afford them. And I only go to Clipper games when they’re on sale.   You might view me as a cheapskate, but after additional costs like $25 parking and $4 bottles of water a Laker game can get pretty costly.

So I’ve been so lucky and fortunate to have Edward and Tam as a 2011 wedding couple because well, they popped my Laker-cherry. I’m so thankful for them to have taken me! They could’ve taken anybody in the world, but they chose me. So reason #230591 why I love my job: I get to go to Laker games.

Thank you SOOO MUCH Tam and Edward! My Laker experience wasn’t complete of course without a cinnamon pretzel (courtesy of Troy), a gigantic Championship ring (courtesy of Chris), and a Nov-Dec 2010 Laker magazine/program (courtesy of Edward) Tam and Ed are veterans at Laker games so it was nice to have people who are so knowledgable about the players and history, especially for a newb such as myself. Thanks also to Troy, and Chris!

Hello!

This is the lovely Sherri and Santos. That’s what most people call them. But in my mind I call them the ‘musically-gifted world trekkers.” Have you noticed most people who are musicians are cool people? Have you also noticed that most people who are travelers are cool too? If you haven’t you must be neither of those, and you must suck.

Sherri has lived all over the U.S. because her family’s in the military. She’s got this cool accent, I’m not really sure where it’s from. But it’s cool nonetheless. Santos has spent some time in west Africa which is one place I’m dying to go to. I always love talking to people from other places or who have been to a lot other places because their stories both inspire and excite me.

So this session took place in Old Town Pasadena–one of my favorite places to take photos because it has a lot of character and different backgrounds, much like this lovely couple!

Hello everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve posted! Fear not, I’m still alive!

So this is Stephanie and Ernest’s long-awaited wedding, since they’ve been dating for about nine years.

What was super awesome about this wedding was that I was one of three people who knew Ernest’s super top-secret wedding secret. You want to know what it is? Of course you do. While Stephanie was walking down the aisle, Ernest sang “I do” (by 98 Degrees). Everybody was crying, or at least I think so. It was hard to tell because my vision was blurry. My eyes had water in them, I don’t know why.  It was definitely super sweet.

Then they actually sang to each other when they were at the altar, and it was the first time I’ve ever seen that at a wedding. Beau-ti-ful.

Anyways, super freaking awesome wedding and uh-may-zingly-gorgeous reception! I’m in love with the reception colors!! Congratulations you two!!! It’s been about time icon smile Meet Steph and Ernest (Wedding)
