Kathleen and Daryl

Kathleen and Daryl tied the knot in Newport Beach and we drove to Heisler Park for the formal portraits.  I am only sharing a few photographs to highlight a few of my obsessions that the regular readers of this blog are most probably familiar with.

I just love to open up the aperture fully in bright sun light.  While this diminishes the depth of field and provides a shallow focus, it also adds a dreamy character to the photograph.  In previous blogs, I have posted other pictures with shallow focus.  If you would like to revisit them, you can see a few personal ones here and a few professional ones here.

Another lovely obsession of mine is the reflections.  Here is the same shot with different focal points.

While hardly an obsession, the wide angle shots, when use properly, yield wonderful results.

Congratulations go to the lovely couple! Have a healthy, wealthy, happy life together!

Blue Buddha Studios Samples

As you may know, we have a gorgeous studio in Los Angeles, and I wanted to share a few of the projects I have already completed in there.

Affordable studio rental in a central location for all kinds of shoots 

The studio is very versatile as it has several sources of available light.  The front windows flood the studio with wonderful diffused light... This is ideal for portraits and video shoots.

Party People at the Reception of a Lovely Wedding

I am not going to elaborate much... I just would love to share a few photographs from a wedding I shot last summer in Rincon Beach Club in Carpinteria.  Let's meet the couple...

This lovely couple were incredibly nice, gracious and fun throughout the entire day I spent with them. Almost the entire wedding party consisted of artists and creative individuals.  They were a lot of fun as well!

After a fantastic portrait session with the couple...

Beach Wedding in Carpinteria, California

We had the regular formalities...

I love these pictures... The happiness in both the groom's and his mom's faces... Bride's mom watching her daughter dancing with daddy while holding his glass of wine....

And the moms... Oh the moms... They were both crazy dancers and they did not leave the dance floor the entire night.

ALL of the men in the wedding party are professional dancers in my book.  They all had some serious moves.  Here is the best man...

When I booked this wedding, I was asked if I could stay till 1am...  You know, usually, I am done by 10pm.  So this was already a bit out of the ordinary...

And the following photographs are not even the half of what this photographer documented for the lovely couple, but I keep FPB family friendly!


But this is what ultimately all the weddings are about... Not seeing anyone, anything around you.  Getting lost in each others' eyes...  Here is the "martini shot" of the night.  I wish them the best and the craziest ride ever! They deserve it!
