Adorable Family Photos in the Park

Some portraits in the Huntington Central Park with a very cute family. I might be biased; that’s my nephew and his excellent wife (he really lucked out finding her)! This was the first portrait session with their very first baby. Incidentally, they chose her name from a character in the “Sword of Truth‘ novels by Terry Goodkind.  It’s a strong name to live up to.  If you’re a fantasy novel fan, you should check out the books.  Just make sure to clear your schedule first. You’ll need the free time 🙂

Tiahna and Colin at the Montage in Laguna Beach

Tiahna and Colin got to say their vows overlooking the Pacific Ocean on a glorious summer day in Laguna Beach.  (well it was a little hot, but beautiful nonetheless). To add a little interest, they were part of a show on Facebook called ‘Help Us Get Married’ (link at end of post) where the Facebook viewers got to choose certain wedding day details for the bride and groom.  Sometimes it’s nice not to have to make certain decisions! I’d say it turned out rather nicely for them!

Destination: Greece (wedding)

You’ve already seen my tourist photos from Greece, so now you can see the actual wedding photos! Which was the reason Nicole Caldwell dragged me there to begin with 🙂 Kyle and Lindsay got themselves married next to lovely Lake Vouliagmeni near Athens. They partied all night long and well into the next day. Even at 6 am it took us almost an hour to pry them away from the party for a few more photos! I’m glad they did, ’cause Nicole brought her waterproof camera and conned, um, I mean convinced them to jump into the water 🙂

No Loitering

The other day my friend texts me and says his son “came out of his room with this greaser look” and he thought we should do photos. So we did!  We walked around the alley in Old Town Orange and I shot half a roll of Kodak Portra 400 with my trusty Canonet QL17 rangefinder. And, yes, the black and white photos are converted from the color film.  I generally prefer it that way.  And thanks to @donna.kayy for letting us borrow Bruno the dog for a bit. He added a bit of levity to our otherwise rather serious looking session!
