Meet Chona and Michael.

Let me tell you what I love about this couple. The first time I went to meet them, Chona was playing Farmville, Michael took out his photography equipment, and they both showed me their exotic pet birds. All that in itself was a pretty amazing experience. Although I don’t play Farmville, I am on Facebook a lot, and I love photography and animals. What I love about Chona is her energy. She’s bubbly and likes to laugh a lot. I think there should be more people in the world like that. I love Michael’s passion for photography. His understanding of underwater photography (I’ll admit) goes over my head sometimes because I don’t know the first thing about underwater photography, but Michael’s very very interesting to listen to.

I look forward to photographing their wedding in San Francisco this week! I am mucho excited. Starting Monday to Friday I will be in northen California photographing an engagement session, their wedding, and meeting with another couple. This upcoming weekend I get to photograph another wedding with my good friend Nathan Nowack.

December 12, 2009 Life on the wild side.

…or in other words, wildlife.

I mentioned earlier in a previous post that Dr. Stephen Chen, my dentist is a photographer too. He likes to shoot wildlife, so we’ll go shoot wildlife together, these are some photos from a recent trip.

Stephen said this egret (below) looked like it was doing tai chi. ha! he’s a funny man.

This guy thought he could camouflage himself in the trees to hide from me. This little bird sucks at camouflage.

This bird below is what I believe a North American Mallard. The same kind of ducks you used to shoot in Nintendo’s Duck Hunt.

I have  almost an exact replica of this in a painting form that I painted when I was younger.

This is the big bad wolf. Or maybe it’s a coyote, and it’s not that big. He looks pretty haggard, I have some friends that look like this on the weekends.
