Howdy folks! Just wanted to let everyone know that I’m going to be out of the office for a week! Photographing a destination wedding in an exotic locale! Woo hoo!!! I’ll be back in two weeks with photos and stories Till then…
Hi, my name is Mike, a professional wedding and portrait photographer born, raised, and based here in beautiful, Silverlake, Los Angeles, California.
On this blog, you'll find the daily inspirations, images and musings of my life.
I love photographing people, places, and anything else that catches my eye. I describe my style of photography as modern, fun, and energetic. So stay a while, check out my work, and get to know me better through my images and entries.
If you'd like to visit my main wedding and portrait site, click on this link, or click on the "connect" button up top to drop me a line via e-mail.
Like I said, stay awhile, and enjoy the entries. And please, do leave a comment. You can also follow me on Facebook and Twitter (via the icons above this paragraph) for even more up-to-date happenings (don't worry, I won't put up meager posts like "I'm standing in line at Starbucks" (my favorite coffee spot!). Only the really cool and important stuff!)
Thanks for stopping by!
As in my previous post of Sandy and Mike’s wedding, I again wanted to say how much of a thrill it was to capture their wedding day for them. These two are so sweet and cool that it warms my heart to look over these images again and recall the day. Plus, I’ve known MIke’s family for some time now, and it was also an honor to capture my second Pulido wedding thus far! They’ve always been so kind and inviting, and I want to thank them once again for letting me be a part of their big day as well Happy day indeed! Plus a lot of fun too
Yup, it’s another week in my photographic life, and this past week
definitely lived up to expectations! Plus, it’s really heating up here
in the city of Angeles, so it finally feels like summer! Great times
The week started off with a special invitation to the one and only Magic Castle
in Hollywood. I’ve been living here my entire life and have never been
able to go due to its members only status, but thanks to our friend
Rumi, we were able to get an invite into the mecca of all things magic!
As you might expect, there’s no photography allowed once you enter, but
we were able to get at least one shot of Helen and me right before we
went into the magic bookshelf entrance (you even have to say “open
sesame!” out loud for it to open! How cool is that?!)
Thursday, my bestie buddy Bevo, was in town, and she wanted to go rock climbing. So we did.
What I love most about being a photographer is the chance to document a family’s life, a couple’s wedding, an important day, and on Friday, I was able to do just that with our friends Jean and Bryant. (Jean is aunt to Amelia, who has appeared here many times). Jean had asked me photograph her wedding reception at King Hua restaurant in Alhambra. I love Chinese weddings!!! Ten course meals, plenty of festivities, and of course, hanging out with a great couple and family. Thank you Jean and Bryant for letting me be there to photograph. Congrats to you both!
