Continuing on from part 1, this wedding was beautiful and very very very exciting. I will explain. This day landed on the same day as the NBA Finals! Many of the guests at the reception (mostly men) were either staring at their phone or absent because they would be in the next room over glued to the screen. At one point, Michael was guilty of this too icon smile Chona and Michael are Married in Half Moon Bay Part II (Wedding) Haha. And of course the Lakers won, so Michael actually had two things to celebrate that day, his wedding and the Lakers Championship! I was guilty for finding myself zipping back and forth (occasionally) from anyone who looked like they had updated scores on their phone.

All in all, this was a beautiful, intimate, and fun wedding. Thank you Chona and Michael for having a beautiful wedding in Half Moon Bay. I love traveling!

Meet Cynthia and Reggie. I would tell you how fun this engagement session was, but their faces tell it all.

This engagement session took place in the beautiful city of San Francisco. Although I love southern California, there’s something about San Francisco that I truly love. I think it’s the people, the food, and the (cool) weather.

This San Francisco engagement session ended up at Hooters, where we chowed down on delicious wings and watched The NBA Finals Game 6. Lakers won of course.  In the middle of our dinner a fight almost broke out inside the restaurant, and I think it carried out outside eventually. That situation was a very difficult for me to be in because my limited A.D.D. brain didn’t what to focus on: the food, the finals, or the fight. They were all so exciting. But eventually we devoured the food, the game finished, and the fight dispersed, and the food coma was setting in. So we all took a walk down Pier 39 to burn off some of those calories and walk off the coma. Kinda romantic. Haha. I love it. Thank you Reggie, Cynthia, and Jason for making this such an awesome engagement session.

I have so much to blog about, and not enough time! But right now I want to focus on a very special person! I am very proud to present my very first intern! This is Emilie!

img 9992 Meet Emilie, shes my new intern!

She’s also my sister! She applied to my internship position that didn’t really exist, and after comparing her with her (nonexistent) competition I had made my choice. After much debate, I have decided that she would make an excellent intern so Emilie is now part of my team. She’ll be helping me out with all sorts of tasks such as blogging, shoots, and editing, etc. etc. Emilie is currently a student at UCI where she is majoring in everything. She’s an owner of a Canon 50d, and she is also an award-winning photographer.

Congratulations to her!

And…congratulations to the Lakers for winning the Championship! I don’t quite understand why Laker fans have to riot and go crazy when we win.

And to sum up my week, I just got back from San Francisco today to meet with an extremely hilarious couple Polly and Kwong photograph an incredibly fun engagement session with Cynthia and Reggie, and photographed a beautiful wedding of Chona and Michael. Tomorrow I head out to San Diego to help out with a wedding for my friend Nathan Nowack to showcase for photosodes!

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.
