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!

Second shot for Erin. Thanks Erin for having me second shoot for you!

I call this the San Fresno Wedding Trip. Here’s the story: my friend Erin asked me if I wanted to second shoot with her in San Jose, and of course I said yes because I love to travel, and I haven’t been in the Bay Area for a while. Bay Area weather beats southern California weather during the summer any day.  But lo and behold, next thing I know we’re on our way to Fresno and not San Jose. I was like “Where are we going??? You tricked me!!!” I was expecting 70 degree weather, but I got 100 instead.

But Erin said she told me that it was Fresno from the start, and she may have been right. I may have been wishfully thinking, but I like my story icon smile Meet Gabby and Mike. Theyre married!

What I loved about this wedding was the groomsmen were shipped in on a little boat in the lake next to the ceremony. I was on that boat. It was like I was on a recon team in the jungle ready for action, that was freakin’ awesome!

Sandy and Scott had lobster at this wedding! I’m so happy! icon smile Meet Sandy and Scott. Theyre married!

I think if I had a couple who came up to me and said “Hey Erich we can’t pay you in cash, but we can pay you in lobsters for the next ten years,” I might just take it. The lobsters were scrumptious! They were prepared Asian style which is pretty much the only way I like it. Typing that makes me drool a little.

Their Costa Mesa Wedding at the Hilton was beautiful! Their ceremony had a nice multi-level manmade waterfall. Their reception was beautifully-lit and well-decorated. And their cocktail hour had some tasty appetizers.

But what I really liked about the wedding was the beautiful mix of culture. Their ceremony and reception activities were mainly Jewish, but the food they had was Asian cuisine. What that basically means in my head is that they had lots of dancing and lobster. If every wedding was like this than I would truly have the best job in the world.

Congratulations to Sandy and Scott!!!
