Wendy and Marshall

Well I've debated on whether or not to blog so close to the "launch." But I was working on these images today and wanted to share a few of my favorites. I promise I'll get back in the swing of things next week!

Wedding Chicks

I just got an email from my clients Kari and Steve that their engagement session was featured on the super-rad-wedding-blog, Wedding Chicks. Wedding Chicks is another awesome resource for brides looking for inspiration. Check it out!

Michael and Brianna

I'm doing something I haven't done in a really long time... I'm blogging a wedding the night of the wedding. Well technically its the next morning but it still counts. I just shot an awesome wedding here in Houston. My good friend Akil Bennett came along to second shoot with me. Aside from the 100+ degree heat and the 97% humidity today, it was a beautiful day. I really love this area, the weather is just awful though. Makes me thankful for our incredible weather in Orange County.

Here are a few favorites from today!

Off to Texas

I'm leaving this morning to head to Houston to shoot a wedding this weekend. I'll be out of the office for about a week but should have access to email and internet. If you need anything send us an email and we'll get back with you as soon as we can. We might not be able to respond as quickly as we usually do but we will definitely get back with you.

I'll actually be in Houston for about a week and will have some personal time while I'm there. If anyone would like to set up a portrait or engagement session or if you're a photographer and would like to grab lunch leave me a comment or shoot me an email.

The After Party

After our party last week we had a little poker tournament. Here are a few images from the tourney.

Apparently I look mad when I play poker...

Blog Features

Over the past couple of weeks I've been featured on some really great wedding related blogs. The first was Elizabeth Anne Designs, which featured Kathy and Sam's beautiful wedding at the Turnip Rose. Elizabeth Anne's blog is an awesome place to go get ideas and inspiration for your own wedding. If you haven't checked it out already, what are you waiting for!?

The second was the blog of Southern Wedding Style Magazine, a magazine which, surprisingly, focuses on southern weddings. They stumbled upon images of Elizabeth and Chris' wedding shot last year in Nashville. Not only was it an INCREDIBLE wedding, it was overflowing with southern charm and style. They contacted me to not only feature it on their blog but they will also be featuring it in an upcoming issue of their magazine! Nice!

I'm Back... Again

So I've been out for a while... I know. I've had many, many things keeping me away but 2 weeks is out of control. One of the things that kept me occupied for the past two weeks was my party. Ever since we moved into our new place we've been meaning to have a party. Just to get all of our friends over and have a good time. We've been in the house 2 months to the day and I've been out of town AT LEAST half of that. So its taken a little longer to actually get settled in than we thought. Well last night we finally did it. We had about 50 guests, mostly photographers, over and had the best time. We brought in a couple of sushi chefs to make fresh sushi for our guests, hired an awesome bartender to handle the beverages and had our friends (Karli, Gabby and Angie) over at Simply Mumtaz helping us out making sure everything went smoothly.

The sushi was incredible, the weather was perfect and the company couldn't have been better. After things started settling down my boy Becker broke out the poker chips and we got a little game going. About 10 of us played and after about 3 or 4 hours it ended with me and Becker splitting the pot and calling it a tie. I can't complain though... anytime I walk away from the table with more than I started with I'm happy.

I'm going to post some images I took tomorrow but Lan put together this rad video of the night so I thought I'd share it first. In order of appearance... Michael Norwood, (that's right... I linked myself) Candice Brooke, Bonny Pierzina, Brian Khang, Jasmine Star, Jessica Claire, Ryel J, Justin Lyon, Amelia Lyon, JD "Star" (haha), Ma5en, Tony Bisson, Aaron Dieppa, Regis Chen and Natalie Williams. Whoa... that was a lot of links.

There were a bunch more people there. Like I said, more to come tomorrow.

Free Music

I'm a huge fan of music. I also love to buy music. That's right, I love to BUY music, downloading crappy copies from high schoolers just doesn't do it for me. But when a band gives it away for free I'm not going to complain. Check out the first single from Coldplay's upcoming album... you can download it here.

Cyndie's Birthday!

Today is my lovely, amazing, wonderful and supportive wife, Cyndie's, birthday! She's just getting over being sick and most likely doens't feel like being photographed so here's a picture from our trip to New York a few months ago. Everyone say, "Happy Birthday!"

theLAB day 3

On Day 3 we had our bride from day 2 come out to shoot a bridal session. We don't shoot many of these in California but in the south everyone does. It was awesome and Hannah was an incredible model. Here are a few of my favorites from that afternoon. Tomorrow I'll put up a little wrap up of the workshop.

theLAB day 2

Sorry I've been gone! After the workshop I went out to a friend's lake house in Oklahoma for a few days to recoup from the LONG, LONG days of the workshop and flew back late Saturday night to shoot a wedding on Sunday. I'm back now though and have plenty to show. We'll start with some images from the workshop we held last week in Texas.

Day two was all about couples. We had an engagement couple and a bride and groom to shoot as well. Both couples were awesome to work with and the location was just amazing. I'm going to go through everyone that attended later on but I can't say enough how great a group we had. Wonderful photographers, amazing people. It was such a great experience.

I took a few more pictures this day but still not too many. I guess I was talking too much. Here are a few of my favorites.

Tomorrow I'll put up some images from our shoot on day 3. Check back for that!
