You may have seen these two on MTV dancing or partying hard and touring with LMFAO. But today you’re going to see them on my blo. Ryanimay and Hok spent a day with me at the beach icon smile Quest Crew Day at the Beach

This was a concept that we all came up with and it’s been in the works for months, so I’m pretty excited that we finally shot and I’m finally posting this on my blog. This ended up being a really fun day with a lot of people staring at us and their was one car even who stopped to get pictures (not from me of course, but maybe one day) from Ryanimay and Hok.

I’m extremely grateful and humbled that I was able to photograph the wedding of Tam and Ed. These two both inspire and motivate me to become both a better photographer and as a person. I am honored to be here at the wedding of Tam and Ed and I am thrilled to present these awesome photos to you!

Tam is hands down the loudest bride I’ve ever photographed, but in a super-excellent way. If Tam was ever remotely close you would know because her laughter reverberates for miles. During her toast to everyone she didn’t even need a mic, neither did Ed but Tam’s still much louder. I’d say she was laughing more during her wedding than anyone I’ve ever seen, and she probably burns more calories laughing than I do doing px90 per hour.

I love Ed too, Ed’s got this mean intimidating look because he’s a wrestler, but once he opens his mouth you’ll realize he’s a non stop comedian. I don’t know how he does it, but he’s hilarious and together with Tam they’re a perfect combo. Ed just tells stories and cracks jokes and Tam just laughs. And I just sit there and watch (and take pictures of course.) It’s also a chain reaction because Ed will say something funny, Tam will laugh, and then I will laugh because Tam is laughing.

If you read my blog long enough you’ll know that the two favorite parts of a wedding are the vows and toasts because they’re so full of emotion. During Tam and Ed’s reception something I didn’t expect totally caught me off guard and threw me into an emotional frenzy.  Tam’s father who’s on a walker slowly walked up to Tam (in his walker)  for the father daughter dance, and when he finally got to her on the dance floor let go of the walker to dance. I have a photo below of how happy he is to be dancing with his daughter. I’m pretty sure I wasn’t the only one crying, and it was one of the most beautiful moments I’ve ever seen at a wedding.

Thank you Maria for second shooting with me! Also thank you Kevin and Jessica for helping me out too.

This is actually my first time being featured on on a wedding blog! How exciting! Check out IDO-LA.com

Screen shot 2011 07 21 at 3.30.43 PM 1024x688 Featured on IDO LA wedding blog!!

Sheila’s a fashion designer, Joel’s a a surfer. Sheila’s a mom, Joel’s a dad. Sheila’s now a wife, Joel’s now a husband. And their wedding was so beautiful!

It was my first time photographing at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, and it was amazing. It offered such an amazing spot for both ceremony and reception. Plus there’s this really nice fountain that you could walk through (if you’re bold enough) and because of it we were able to get some amazing shots. The bridesmaids were troopers for letting me photograph them in front of the cold fountain for so long, but the end results were so worth it icon smile Meet Sheila and Joel! Theyre Married! Sheila and the bridesmaids are the epitome of a DIY bridal party. They made all the bouquets, centerpieces, floral decorations, and garters themselves, and it turned out incredibly well! I was very, very impressed with their talent.

And Joel, Joel laughs pretty much at anything and all the time. Joel-like people are so easy to photograph, thank you so much for your big smiles and laughter. Congratulations to the two of you!
