I think any day where you combine a day at the beach, a round of tennis, and a lobster dinner (no photos) is considered a pretty darn good day. I had one of those days during this shoot. Basically lots of fun and lots of food. Between the three of us we devoured a whole plate of lobster, green beans, clams, and calamari which easily enough food for five people.

Although Eri Jun and I went to the same high school, I didn’t meet them until this year. So that makes us all wildcats (that was our mascot, go wildcats!) But Eri, Jun, and I have another thing in common, we’re all foodies!! We love food, and I think after our first meeting we grabbed some good late night chinese food. Yum. Eri brought chocolates to her room not just to eat, but for me to take pictures of . That’s the mark of a true foodie.  You know how else I know they’re true foodies? They had their wedding at a restaurant.  They’re also Laker fans, which is why their colors were purple and yellow!

I think my favorite of this wedding was when Eri through her bouquet and it got caught in the ceiling lamp and it left everyone “hanging” OHhhhh. I’m proud of that one. Thank you, thank you! Congratulations Eri and Jun!!!!

Good job Evelyn from Serene Bridal Beauty with the make up/hair and Chris Ace from Chris Ace Films with the videography.

I’m going to tell you the story of how this happened. Not the story of how they met or how long they’ve been together but of the story of this day through…me.

8:32AM Wednesday.
Dino calls me. I’m still asleep. I ignore the call.

8:32AM
Dino calls me again. I don’t recognize the number, but I figured it must be important. I pick up the phone and answer with my normal response when I don’t recognize the number, but since I just woke up I responded very very slowly…

Me – “Helloooo….this..is..erich”

Dino -”Hey this is Dino” I thought he said Tino, I had a friend named Tino who recently needed headshots.

Me – Heyyy!! Hey Tino!” in the tone I use when I think I know who I’m talking to.

Dino – “Hey Erich can you do my wedding photos today?” I paused in utter confusion. Wedding photos?!? I suddenly had no idea who I was talking to and I started to panic, and I thought for a second it was a Saturday and I was supposed to be at a wedding. But then I maybe he said “Tony”, the groom I recently photographed in Hawaii and he wanted me to edit his wedding photos. There was a long pause and I was still really confused, and I finally admitted defeat.

Me – “Wait…who is this?”

Dino – “Dino, Dino Bangara” I could sense the frustration his voice which only made me more confused. I was so lost! I used to call him Dinesh which is his legal name, so his name didn’t register at first. And then when I realized that he meant engagement photos, and not wedding photos I finally realized who I was talking and what he wanted after minutes of talking and lots of awkward pauses.

Me – “Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh! Got it!”

So it turns out he’s surprising his girlfriend with a proposal at the end of Santa Monica Pier. Here are the photos! icon smile Meet Dino and Marge! Hes proposing to her.
