And Babies Make Four

It's twins! A baby boy and a baby girl! In the next few weeks Savannah and Ray will be welcoming two new members to their family. It's crazy to think that she has two little babes growing inside of her. One already seems like a miracle, but two? And, as it turns out twins don't run in either side of their families. They have two little bundles of joy on the way, I can't wait to meet them! Congratulations Ray and Savannah!

The Beautiful Bride

There is something so majestic and beautiful about being a bride. Granted, I’ve never been one, but watching your friends get married lets you witness a whole different side of someone. When love is in the air it radiates through the room, it’s a wonderful thing to experience. The joy and happiness that come from the friends and family is delightful to witness. There really is nothing like a wedding to bring people together.

San Francisco City Hall is a beautiful venue for a wedding. It’s funny how a place so busy and crowded can feel so intimate and close. There are several weddings taking place at the same time and tons of couples running around and taking photos. Yet, among all the hustle and bustle Aileen stood out from so many other brides. She carried a sense of calm and serenity that many others didn’t seem to possess, and it shows in her photos. She was a beautiful blushing bride.

Lady Bugging

I could have sworn I posted this months ago, but it looks like I forgot! No surprise there. I've been forgetful and lazy lately. Any who, A long while ago I posted a simular Sweet 16 post of my friend Ceci. It's part of a project I started well over a year ago. It took me about a year to edit Ceci's photos so I made her two "16" sets instead of one. You can find the first one here.

City Hall Wedding Bliss

It's funny how some things in life just fall into place, new opportunities, meeting the right people (or person), having babies, starting a career and getting married. I've finally hit that point my my life where people my age are doing all that and more. Recently, it's been wedding and babies! We really do grow up so quickly, it's magical the way life evolves. 

On April 27, 2012 my high school friend Aileen Randolph married her long time sweetheart Ronnie Quintana at San Francisco City Hall. They had a beautiful ceremony on a balcony in city hall surround by their closest friends and family. It really was a beautifully perfect ceremony. Here are a few on my favorite photos from the day. 

Thank You Aileen and Ronnie for giving me the opportunity to photography my first wedding! More photo are located at my Flickr Account.

Yogi Tea Project

It’s a fact, Instagram is the new Polaroid. Whether you’re using it for fashion, landscapes, food photography or just for fun, Instagram is becoming the social network of the future. I for one have been obsessed since Instagram became available on Android phones. It only took me a few minutes to figure out how to use the app and I was hooked.

I’ve been drinking Yogi Tea for a few years now and I’ve collected quite a few or their tea quotes through the years. I’ve used some in art projects, but I never really figured out how I wanted to use it in my photography. Then I got instagram. As I drink Yogi Tea I’ll be Instagraming all the tea quotes I get. I’ll either photograph them on different surfaces or hanging from my tea mug. Over the years I’ve collected a good amount of mugs and quotes, so it should shape up to be a good project. In the end, I’m going to use Printstagram to print out a poster with all the quotes. I’m pretty excited! Here are some of the tea quotes I’ve photographed thus far.
