Check it out. My year. In Photos.

December 31st, 2011

A couple weeks ago, I was on the iPad2 on some Reader App looking through Time Magazine, LIFE Magazine and some other publication’s”Year in Photos”. And it gave me an idea, I’ve had a long year, and it’s really been crazy. I haven’t had two projects that were the same, it’s all be such a great and wonderful experience. If we didn’t have calendars, I wouldn’t know where to start.

¬†Under each photo there’ll be a short story about why I picked it as my favorite photo.

january

los angeles corporate portrait photographerThe Dentist- She was amazing to work with, she initially wanted just a regular portrait session, but after talking for a few minutes, I was able to convince her to let me sit in and photographer her at work.

orange county wedding photography

The Last Dance, from Alex and Espy’s Wedding. I noticed this gentleman pushing his wife into the wedding venue earlier that day. She spent most of the day in her wheelchair, but when they played the last song, she whispered something to her husband and he helped her up. Alex and Espy told me that she had been battling cancer for quite some time and that their wedding was the first time she got out in a very long time.

los angeles fashion photographer

Sheree. Me and her go back all the way through high school. After I switched in during the middle of my Junior year, I didn’t know a soul. Sheree was quick to make friends with me and keep me company.

july

military family photographerPinky+Stinky 365. Communication.  A memory straight from my head. After a long day of training we were sometimes rewarded with the opportunity to write back to our loved ones. Most of the writing that occured during lights out took place under a red light to prevent others from waking up. This photo involved zero photoshop work, it was shot in a single frame.

august

apple valley weddingsMTV from Josh and Theresa’s wedding. MTV gave me a call asking if I had any younger clients who were interested in having their wedding day. I had never worked with such a large entity during a wedding with over 6 videographers and a crane operator, and it was definitely experience. This gentleman is a sound technician partaking in some red velvet cake, note the cheeky wedding attire.

september

rifle photosBOOM! The guys at Ares Armor brought me out to a private range in Southern California. I was there to take some video footage of the group for an instructional video for their sling. I’ve been around guns before, but never as a photographer, standing next to what people are shooting at.(No photographers were harmed during that day.)

october

los angeles car photographer4 car pile up. We had just gotten on the freeway, then traffic abruptly stopped. I was able to stop within inches of hitting the car in front of me, but the driver four cars behind me had no such luck. He ended up causing a chain reaction that would delay our photo session for that night.

november

los angeles wedding photosthe boot. I didn’t think it was possible, but this image marked my first year focusing on weddings primarily. I still photograph other things, but 80% of my work is wedding related.

december

laguna beach wedding photographer

2 year anniversary. She’s my inspiration and I swear she pushes me to be a better photographer everyday. I owe her everything. I thank God for her everday.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy New Year!

The Spirit of Dance- Presented by Te Varua Ori

August 11th, 2011

A beautiful show presented by the Talented Young Tahitian Dance Group, Te Varua Ori. This event took place at the Grove in the city of Anaheim. Congratulations TVO!!!

 

 

The large auditorium filled with mist. The lights dimmed low. Loud drum beats filled the room. Loud Shrill war cries from the croud reverberate through the darkness. The Show’s begun.

A grand entrance, as always from Te Varua Ori.

The story of tonight’s show was about a young couple, who meet at an early, is torn apart by war. A tale of romance and action is sure to capture any heart from any age.

Dressed in traditional Tahitian garb, this group of fit young dancers know how to put on a show. Equipped with lively dance moves and ear catching drum beats. This orange county based Tahitian dance team knows how to put on a good show.

Congratulations to Te Varua Ori for another beautiful, heart moving display of skill, talent, and ingenuity.

If you haven’t seen a show from Te Varua Ori, I recommend catching one- it’s sure to rock your world.

We were invited to attend Te Varua Ori’s Annual Showcase at Servite High School.

From the first performance of the night, the group put together a beautiful performance.

The night started with a dancer blowing into a conch and ended with the dancers picking audience members to dance with on stage.

But it’s not all waist shaking, war cry screaming, and foot stomping for TVO (pronounced TeeVo). For the past 5 years they’ve participated in the various Charitable Activities such as Lupus International’s Race for Life and have provided enterntainment for those who run in the 24 hour long Relay for Life in Long beach.

Congratulations to Te Varua Ori for a smashing performance!
