Last week I shot another house for John Knight. John designed and installed the lighting, landscaping, fire and water features. Alex and Laura, the homeowners, were gracious enough to show me some shots of the house before and during the construction process; the change is night and day.
It’s all about relationships.
This is Breanna.
She is now a Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Beverly Hills. I met her several years ago as a model and actor. This week we got together to shoot some corporate headshots. It’s relationships like these that keep me in business. As I mentioned in my previous post I met the groom of last week’s wedding while shooting him as one of the subjects for an editorial assignment. It’s all bout who you know and who sees your work.
Yesterday I had the honor of shooting Tin and Wendy’s Wedding in Santa Monica. I met Tin a few months ago while shooting a job for USC about the Server Engineering Department at MySpace.
I had help from a great new assistant named Kris Miller. We started our day at 9AM at the Embassy Hotel & Apartments with a few shots of the bride and groom getting ready and a whole lot of family portraits, including this little group of 30. A big thanks to the hotel management who were very gracious on both of my visits to the hotel.
A first for me; the bride and groom were seeing each other before the ceremony. This was a great help because we were able to shoot all of the family portraits before the ceremony.
After the family portrait session we headed down the street to Michael’s Restaurant where the ceremony and reception were held. The ceremony and reception were filled with the traditions of Tin and Wendy’s Burmese and Chinese background and included Wendy changing dresses twice and then back into her wedding dress for our final photo shoot.
As the party was wrapping up we headed over to Shutters Hotel for our final shoot. Once again thanks goes out to the staff for their help. Sunset on the beach in Santa Monica was a perfect setting for bridal portraits.
