I was lucky enough to be invited by my good friends to stay with them in their mountain home in Crested Butte for a few days. They were the perfect fall days, crisp and clear with sun. The yellow … Continue reading →
I flew to San Antonio Texas to photograph Tom and Katy’s wedding. It rained the day before I got there, and the day I left. But the skies were sunny for their wedding day. The ceremony was held at Soldier’s Angels since Tommy is an Army Ranger. It was the most fun I have ever had at a wedding. Their families were so fun! Continue reading →
Ok, I am smitten. Smitten by the Wild Card Boxing Gym and the people who inhabit it. The international boxing talent that train in this small gym in the middle of Hollywood is amazing. I was there two days this week shooting English boxer Amir Khan. While I was there Andrei Arlovski was there sparring in preparation for his next MMA fight. There were boxers from Scotland, Kenya, you name it. Freddie Roach is the quiet presence that every one flocks to. He is somehow still grounded and ego free. He just went to Vegas to accept his giant Trainer of the Year award and trophy. Since he hates trophies..he left it on the bus, and they will mail it to him. His assistant trainer heavy weight champion Michael Moorer is working with Arlovski while Freddie concentrates on Amir who is amazing already at only 18 years old. The first day I was there his sparring partner was on the mat looking stunned after the first two minutes, trying to figure out how he got there. There is a quiet intensity to everyone in the Wild Card. The Wild Card parking lot and being yelled at by the woman who runs the laundry downstairs is considered a rite of passage. I had some amazing conversations with trainers who have given me such great insight into boxing and boxers. Pictured Scottish Boxer Gary Young.
The first time I met Melissa and Dan I remember thinking, they are so Cool! They were married yesterday at the Rancho Sol Del Pacifico in Malibu over looking the ocean. When I arrived there was an amazing Andalusian stallion running in the corral, and when I left there were 6 Border Collies romping in the same place. It is a one of a kind venue, full of charm. Melissa and Dan are a dream couple for me because they love with Gusto! Melissa has sass and knows how to grab her man and kiss him. I had the hardest time deciding which photos of them to post because there are so many I love! Their photos embody them…playful, hip, passionate, fun, cool and full of love for each other and their friends and families! Enjoy your honeymoon! Every detail was made perfect by Whitney Drake with Wish Wonder Dream, and the flowers were truly beautiful by Holly Flora.
How perfect can a kiss be….. There are so many types of kisses.The kiss on the hand that begins the dance, the kiss on the forehead, the kiss on the neck, even the kiss on the tip of the nose. Then there is the kiss that lingers on your mouth….. and in your heart for days…
How beautiful are they both! We have so many amazing photos of them kissing it will inspire a whole new post on kissing. The location was the Orcutt Ranch in the San Fernando Valley, a really unique historic old home.
