Joannah and John’s wedding at Rancho Las Lomas was simply amazing! I loved the details that they incorporated into their wedding – gorgeous colors, the cake looked fabulous, and they had these really cool custom made M&Ms that had funny phrases (and an inside joke). Of course it also doesn’t hurt when you’re at a beautiful location like Rancho Las Lomas (now totally on top of my favorite places to shoot in OC).
Joannah has this gorgeous natural smile! = )

This semester at Cypress College blew by so fast! During one of my last shooting assignments, I had the students go out and find several items on campus – a chair, a plant, the Cypress College obelisk, and a book. They had to either find or come up with unique shots and perspectives while varying their compositions. The images they came up with were so cool! Here’s a collage of the images that my students took:
In many ways photography is like a “treasure hunt”. Every situation, environment, event, or subject can have a story that can be told by images taken of it. And there is always that gem of an image that will tell the story differently by the visual impact it creates. The collage above shows just a few (out of countless) different perspectives and possibilities that a simple object can have. You just have to look for it.
It was a pleasure to teach this semester. I’ll be back at Cypress College next Fall in 2009 for the 104C Wedding Photography Class.

There was a special place in Ashley’s heart for the St. Regis Resort in Monarch Bay. It’s where Scott surprised her by proposing to marry him. It’s the same spot where Ashley would prepare for her special day. It’s where they’ll meet for the first time on their wedding. It’s also one of my favorite places to shoot because of it’s grandeur and gorgeous architecture.
The plan was to photograph their “first meeting” at the St. Regis but Ashley didn’t know exactly how it was going to happen.
She thought we were still shooting her solo pictures when Scott snuck up on her from behind! She had the biggest shocked/smile on her face!
Their wedding ceremony and reception was held at the scenic Chart House Restaurant overlooking Dana Point Harbor where we were blessed with fair weather and clear blue skies.
Second Shooter: My friend David Baxter came all the way from SD – thanks bro, you’re always awesome to shoot with!
