New York Wedding (continued...again)

New York Wedding (continued)

The New York Wedding

Here are some pix from the wedding I did this past weekend of the lovely Ryan and Melissa. The first picture is a little blurry, but it was taken by a guy up in the balcony and it shows me in action. The rest of the pix are mine - some romantic shots, group shots, and fun shots. I especially like the Secret Service shot with Melissa and the groomsmen. Matt had fun starting up a congo line and later getting dressed up with the other groomsmen as The Village People for a rousing rendition of "Y.M.C.A."

Lunch in New York!

Hard to believe that 24 hours ago I was on the west coast in Monterey...around midnight I was in Vegas...and today I had pizza next to the Empire State Building. I'm currently in Poughkeepsie, NY for a friend's wedding. I flew into Newark, NJ earlier to meet my friend Matt so we could share a rental car. Matt suggested we go grab lunch in New York City, so we went for an adventure. I've never driven in downtown Manhattan, but I have now! Cost us over 20 bucks to park for 2 hours and we made the most of our time. We went to the Empire State Building, had some great NY pizza, walked down to the New York Public Library, Rockefeller Plaza and Radio City Music Hall/NBC studios. We even saw Al's Soup Kitchen - the Soup Nazi from Seinfeld.

Pregnancy Portfolio Expands...

So it looks like I'm transitioning from a part time wedding photographer to a part time pregnancy/baby photographer. Here's another lovely couple, Ryan & Lina, in the last month of pregnancy. They're expecting a little girl...any day now! These are the "before" photos and the "after" shots should follow soon.

Another Baby Pic plus some from my road trip

One more baby pic of Faerosa plus some pics from my road trip to Eureka. There's one of me and Paul Bunyan with his ox, Blue....another pic of me in the Redwoods on the Avenue of Giants South of Eureka....then some Elk resting in a meadow.

Eureka!'s a BABY!!!!

So here are some shots of Faerosa, the beautiful daughter of my friends Treena & Jason Hartley. Baby's make the best facial expressions!!!


These shots were actually taken before the baby shower on my last day at the desert party, but I forgot to add them earlier. Darwin is a dinky little town near Death Valley and there's actually people that still live there. Here's some artistic shots of the almost ghost town.

Eureka!....its a baby shower

I headed up to Eureka, CA for my girlfriend's baby shower at the end of March. My gift to her was a pregnancy photo shoot. These were some of my favorite shots done around sunset for some great silhouettes with the ocean as a backdrop.

Panamint Part 2

So here's a few other pics from the desert party. There's Gay Cousin Eric who is neither gay nor a cousin to Doug, but that's his name. Gay Cousin Eric got too drunk the night before and was rude to some of the staff, so Doug made him do "community service" the next day by picking up cigarette butts in a bright orange vest and white wig. Then you've got the Hybrid-Dog....a guy brought his dog and the staff quickly informed him that the dog needed to be on a leash. This guy didn't have a leash, so he found this old plug laying around and attached it to the dog's collar for a leash. He kept telling everyone that his dog was a hybrid and needed to be plugged in every once in a while to recharge his batteries.
