Cory and Jessica 6.11.11

Hi guys!

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity of shooting a wedding very close to home – right in the heart of downtown Long Beach!  Cory and Jessica are a lovely, wonderful couple who were a blast to work with, and the scenery made a beautiful backdrop.  Not only did we (by we I of course mean the talented Jeannie Mutrias [http://www.jeanniemutrias.com/] and myself) have a gorgeous background, but the weather was perfect too!  I happily kicked off my shoes for just about all of the shots we got on the beach :)

The guests were friendly, the food and dessert smelled like heaven, and Cory and Jessica’s wedding unfolded all day long as a lovely event.

Grbavach family portraits.

Tom approached me a few weeks ago asking if I’d be interesting in taking some portraits of his family.  These photographs were to be the first official portraits the family would have taken together.  I happily agreed.

Working with the Grbavach’s was a tremendous amount of fun.  For those of you who know me, I’m a silly person.  I laugh easiest at dumb jokes told with dumb voices, people making faces, family teasing, all of which the Grbavach’s engaged in almost the entire time.  It’s probably the most I’ve ever laughed while behind the camera.  Needless to say, photographing the Grbavachs’ beautiful family was entertaining as well as productive – there were so many awesome photos, I was having a hard time picking out which ones to post :)
