Dominique and I went to high school many many years ago, and this is the first time we’ve seen each other since then but we wasted no time catching up and talking about old times. Dominique and I both were ‘thespians’ in high school and we embraced our quirkiness, weirdness, creativity, and individuuality! So photographing her and Marvin and their dog Bubba was a joy! We started off our engagement session with a few photos in the park, and then we headed to Old Town Pasadena got some food, ate some olives, had a few good laughs and created some really fun pictures!

Also…meet Bubba He’s half labrador, half Irish wolf hound, and full of happiness. Do you know what an Irish wolf hound is? They’re historically bred and trained to kill wolves. Isn’t that insane?  A couple days before this shoot I saw two full breeds and they’re about the size of a runt horse.

Congratulations to the both of you!

Everytime I go to NYC I think I fall in love with it a little more each time, even in a hurricane! During this weekend all of NYC’s metro system shut down for a day for the time in history (due to a natural ‘disaster’)! Isn’t that crazy? It didn’t turn out as bad as the news made it out to be, and all my shoots in NYC during that weekend worked out really well including Erika and Ted’s Engagement part II.  And because the media was blowing up the whole situation about the weather, all of Central Park was evacuated and of course that meant it was a perfect

I joked with Erika and Ted saying that every time we meet, there’s basically three important elements 1) extreme weather 2) extremely good food (afterwards) 3) and extremely good drinks (afterwards). The first time I photographed them we shot in 116 degree weather which was my first time shooting in a temperature like that. This time it was my first time shooting in hurricane weather. Both times were awesome, and it’s been such an amazing experience photographing Erika and Ted. Thank you so much for all the good times and congratulations to the both of you! I look forward to photographing you guys next year for your wedding!
