Photographically, this isn’t the greatest photo. But let me tell you! This one man band whose name is Danny held his own all by himself with a guitar and ukelele. He played amazing music! Anyone who listens to his music would agree. And you know he’s good when everyone (including me) went up to him to ask for a business card. Not only is he talented in singing and playing the guitar, but according to his business card he’s also a swing dance instructor and a gondolier. In case you don’t know what a gondolier is, it’s one of those guys who row a gondola (skinny Italian boats). His music can be found on myspace.com/dannymaika.

These next two photos are what I call brotherly love.

I love this guy, and I don’t even know his name. During his toast he said he cut his shoulder length hair just for Erwin. That’s love man.

This is my good friend Elaine! She’s Erwin’s sister and she’s doing her best not to fall apart emotionally while giving her toast.  Elaine and I used to take advertising class together, and we’d be big procrastinators in our homework, that’s how we got along so well.

The guy wearing a fedora hat is the father of the groom. I don’t know many Asian dads that can pull off a fedora hat, he is the man.

Matt and Brittany are one of the easiest couples to work with. Plus they’re a lot of fun! Who ever said that people who work in insurance aren’t fun people? And they’re very very beautiful people!

I had so many great images from this wedding, that just in this post alone are only the photos of Brittany getting ready. There are so many more, that I don’t know what to do with myself.  I’d also like to thank my second shooter Kristen Hanson for shooting this with me.

I’m going to start off this post with what should be the last narcissistic post (after my giant headshot in the last post.) But at least I don’t have a Twitter right? I’ll never get into that boat. I promise.  But I mean I really liked shooting this wedding because I genuinely had a lot of fun. I’m progressively having more and more fun at my weddings! I love my job. So at this wedding they had the coolest photo booth I have ever seen, both inside and out. And it prints out your photos..instantly! I was in awe! Here I am going around from table to table lugging my equipment around trying to organize a bunch of drunk and food-coma-fied guests to take some photos with the bride and groom as efficiently as possible, then there’s this machine (photo booth) that everyone runs to voluntarily all giddy and stuff. I couldn’t compete with this machine that sits in the corner of the reception. So I figured if I can’t beat it, I’ll join it icon smile Angela and Charles Wedding with Serena.

Props to the four entrepreneurs of the photobooth ( cubethemoment.com ) Check it out.

In the photo below are me and Serena of serenagrace.com . I had the honor and privilege of second shooting for this talented and fun (can you tell?) photographer.  We had so much fun taking photos, and having our photo taken!  If I may say, we made a pretty good team.  We both managed to arrange literally hundreds of people for the family/friend formal photos and take their photo in probably half an hour easy! That’s a record.

Alright, so here are some of the photos I took at the wedding, since i was only second shooting I don’t have many of the more important photos that a first shooter would.

Meet Charles and Angela! It’s cliche to say are really nice and easy to work with, but they really were nice and easy to work with. And I love that.
