Even after a couple of hiccups during their wedding Susan and Alex weren’t phased at all, and you want to know why? Because they’re uber cool. Super down to earth, fun, easy-going, and just sweet. I want to be their best friends. Moreover, they definitely know how to throw a party and have some pretty fun-loving friends.

During a Michael Jackson son, it’s not uncommon to see someone dance to the king of pop’s moves with impeccable dexterity, but it IS uncommon to see two older gentlemen battle it out in the middle of a dance floor which happened at this wedding. They definitely stole the show for a couple of minutes. Quickly the Billy Jean song, Thriller followed and that’s when Susan and Alex reclaimed their dance floor with some moves of their own. I even got to dance a little bit with Susan during this wedding, but unfortunately, she doesn’t remember icon sad Meet Susan and Alex! Married at the Castaway in Burbank!

The playlist during the reception was off the hook. I was going to give the DJ some mad props, until I realized it was Susan and Alex’s own playlist! I was groovin’ to EVERY single song. I loved this wedding. Congratulations to the both of you!

I’ve always wanted to shoot a bride and groom with a lightsaber. Now that that’s off my photography bucket list, I present to you the beautiful images of Mindy and Ricky’s wedding!

Now that I’ve been to so many weddings there’s not a WHOLE lot of things that impress me that are wedding-related. But I was in awe when I found out that Ricky and his friends built their own photo booth for their own wedding! Wow, but I guess I’m not to surprised knowing that a lot of his groomsmen are smart engineers. Okay I’m going to be honest. I don’t even know if I could build a photo booth and I’m a photographer. Maybe one day I’ll do it for my on wedding (which probably won’t be for a while.)

This beautiful wedding took place in this little hidden gem in Pasadena called the Athenaeum. I don’t even know how to pronounce that word, but it doesn’t matter this place was gorgeous like many of the Pasadena venues. It’s inside the campus of Cal Tech so a lot of the architecture is shared with the campus itself (I think.)

Congratulations to the both of you!

I haven’t written in a long time! I apologize to al my readers! It’s been quite a fun-filled but busy couple of months! I just came back from NYC and I had such an amazing time there. It’s one of my favorite cities in the world! Great food, friends, and times!

So this is April and Ryan’s wedding! Such a beautiful, fun, caring, and I’m gonna say…bodacious couple! April and Ryan actually invited me to their super bowl party…and I went! So much fun! They definitely know how to throw a good party, and they know how to throw an even better wedding! So guess who I bumped into on the street while shooting their wedding? Kevin Durant!!! At that time they were playing against the Lakers, and now that they beat the Lakers I really want them to beat the Heat!

I’m so blessed with all my couples this year, including April and Ryan. So as I was leaving the wedding I was waiting in line to say good bye to Ryan. He saw me but couldn’t get to me because he was so popular, so in the mean time I decided to groove on the dance floor for a few minutes so the line to say goodbye to Ryan would dissipate.  The only problem was Ryan didn’t see me go on the dance floor, he thought I just left. So poor Ryan ran all the way downstairs, all the way through the lobby of the hotel, and all the way to valet just to look for me so he could say good bye to me!!! Isn’t that so nice of him! That’s the type of person that Ryan (and April) are. Just super NICE. I love them so much. Congratulations you two!
