What a great wedding we had a few weekends ago. Here is one image from Marjorie and Mac's first dance, they
make such a cute couple and I just loved this image of the dance:


They have such a classic look, I wanted this image to have a
nostalgic feeling to it, so for all of you photoshop techies out there, I put a little bit of a motion blur
to a layer (and masked them out), added a texture layer to the image and gave it a light sepia tone.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week!

Adventures by the Sea is such a fun place to get married and you can have your ceremony right onthe beach.  It's right next to the fishermans wharf and if you are looking for a beach theme wedding this is your place, they even have surfboards on the wall to capture that california spirit.Here is a wedding slideshow from a wedding at Adventures by the Sea in Monterey, Ca. This is a fun place to get married at right on the beach in Monterey. At night you can even have a bonfire on the beach and bring the reception outside!

We had a great wedding photography workshop on Saturday here at the Studio. It was a nice small class and was a fun action packed day of photography. The weather was a little bit questionable but thankfully everything cleared up by 11:00 so we could shoot our wonderful model Erin (Thanks for your help Erin, you were perfect!). We headed downtown and just like you would on a wedding day looked for some good light outdoors and had fun shooting erin for about an hour and a half. We ended the day viewing the images we shot and going over the post production part of photography and how to really make an artistic image from what we had. It was a fun day and I am looking forward to our next workshop. Teaching has always been a passion of mine and it feels so good to share my love of photography with other photographers and aspiring artists. Thanks Everyone!!!

Anyone who is interested in our next photography workshops check out our site online:

Unlike large workshops were you can't get personalized training, our workshops are small in size and limited
to 6 photographers so everyone gets custom attention.

My little sis got married a few weeks ago. It was a fun wedding and for the first time in years I wasn't the main photographer :) Joey captured the wedding so I was able to hang out and have fun, I did bring my camera though to shoot some images but just did some fun stuff for me. Here is a slideshow from the day:

We had such a fun wedding last weekend for Mac and Marjorie. They had a beautiful wedding at the Weston in San Francisco and it was a blast. They had a great bridal party and I had so much fun with them, we even got to ride a
trolley from the Church to the Weston, how fun!

I started running again at the start of the year and am finally getting into a good grove.
I did 4 miles today and it didn't feel to bad, so finally getting back into the swing of things. Hopefully
by the summer I will be ready for some more 10K runs.

Here is my latest progress:
