Laura and Austin at the Balboa Inn

April 20th, 2013

Let’s talk about second shooting. In almost every wedding I photograph, I bring along a second shooter(sometimes a third.) A second shooter isn’t an assistant, they’re there to photograph a wedding alongside the main photographer.

Let’s talk about second shooting. In almost every wedding I photograph, I bring along a second shooter(sometimes a third.) A second shooter isn’t an assistant, they’re there to photograph a wedding alongside the main photographer. An added set of eyes or a second shoulder to help with the stresses of wedding photography, but usually they’re there to provide just the right amount of moral support.

On my weekends free, I’m usually more than happy to help other photographer friends shoot weddings. These weddings give me a chance to sharpen my skills, try new angles, and meet some awesome people.

I photographed this wedding alongside my friend, Craig from Craig Norris Photo, sometime last year.

I’m grateful for every wedding I photograph and the awesome people I meet in them.

During this wedding I met a hilarious cast of characters from the bridal party. The almost serious, but not quite so, groom, Austin and his amazingly wild bride, Laura.

I loved their attitude about everything, super laid back and so easygoing that it wouldn’t have been hard to forget I wasn’t a guest at their wedding.

Special Thanks to Craig for allowing me the chance to second shoot this :)

Mesh and Nina’s Storybook Delivery

December 31st, 2010

I met up with Nina and Mesh to hand them their album. That night was the first night that Disney would have their holiday decor up, I took advantage of the romantic mood set by the Christmas Lights and the live saxophonist.

 

I had a chance to meet Nina & Mesh again to deliver their album. My Office is currently under development so I had to meet them in a public place.

I decided to meet them at Downtown Disney in Anaheim. That was the first night that Disneyland will have its Christmas Decoration up.

The cold weather couple,gorgeous light decor, and a romantic sax player created the mood.

As I gave Nina & Mesh their albums, I decided to step back and take some photos as they view their album for the first time.

Here’s a quick excerpt from a message that Nina sent me regarding her Albums:

“HEY John!! Omg they loved it.. Especially my mom.. She was soooo so excited when she and my dad were looking through it because I hadn’t shown them every photo yet. They were BLOWN away by the fact that the book spread that photo out of us sitting on the log across the front cover and back cover..They didn’t know photographs were actually going to be the pages themselves in a storybook organization like that!! They were so impressed and really enjoyed the story it portrayed, especially because they have a lot of memories themselves visiting me at UCSD when i was away at school and at meeting mesh there. My mom and my sister were pouring over every aspect they liked about each page for an hr straight.. Actually my sister was on skype for awhile just showing her boyfriend each page individually, flipping through each page in the book and holding it up to the webcam hahaha. Thank you again so much John… It’s such a sweet, magical album…Seriously. Mesh loves it too, he’s so proud about it. He’s actually already packaged it to ship out to the family abroad…

Probably one of the most gorgeous weddings I’ve ever photographed filled with Beautiful colors and a wonderful, loving family. Congratulations to Josh and Lisa.

We started the day out at the epic Terranea Resort in Palos Verdes. Their hotel room had a bangin’ view of the coast. Lisa and her bridesmaids were getting ready for what was to be one of the most memorable days of her life.

When we arrived at  La Venta Inn My jaw dropped at the view and at how gorgeous the location was. The place was beautifully decorated with the roses.

The live band played into the reception. Setting a great mood and getting the guests going.
