Salton Sea California Adventure

This past weekend Joey and I took a road-trip to California for a mass photoshoot with about 40 other photographers from all over california. We met up saturday morning with several groups of newlyweds and had the opportunity to photograph them all day. I can defiantly say that it was a very different experience than taking photos on your own. Fighting for spot to take a picture without getting another photographer defiantly made the day interesting! The location was AMAZING though, out in the middle of nowhere is this amazing body of water ( a little stagnant but beautiful none the less) surrounded by abandoned homes, motels, buses and even some forgotten furniture. You can find a pretty good write up about what happend there BY CLICKING HERE Joey and I were out all day taking photos and have the sunburns to prove it! Here are some of our favorite pictures from the trip:

Bridal Shoot With Amy

Since I was up in Phoenix for a few days helping Kevin King I called up my new sis-in-law Mrs. Amy Pangburn to see if she wanted to come down and have some fun taking pictures on friday. She jumped at the idea and we drove all around town in search of photo spots and got some great shots. Although I don't know if I had more fun taking pictures or doing her hair and make-up. I've always loved doing hair but never have any willing models!

But anyway, without further ado here's some of my fav shots from our shoot!

Having Fun With Kevin King

This past weekend I had the pleasure of meeting up with Kevin King and tagging along on a couple of his fabulous weddings. I always love meeting new photographers and seeing how they do things, and of course getting the opportunity to learn from them, and Kevin King's photography is amazing! I really respect him as a photographer and was stoked when we asked me to come help him out for a few weddings!

The first wedding we did was at the beautiful Villa Siena up in Mesa Arizona. This place is gorgeous! It's like a little italian oasis in the middle of mesa. Although it's pretty big inside and I kept getting lost and kept finding myself going up the wrong corridor. The wedding itself was amazing. The ceremony took place inside their grand ballroom with dinner served outside in the courtyard. But I'm sure it would be a whole lot easier to image if I just shut up and showed you some of the pictures I was able to grab when I wasn't helping out Kevin.

Like I said before, this place is amazing!

The second wedding we did was at the Arizona Biltmore Hotel and I think this is probably one of the coolest hotels in Phoenix! It has tons of amazing art deco inspired architecture. The day was a little hectic since the ceremony was supposed to be held outdoors and it had been raining off and on all day long. So down to the wire everyone was trying to decide wether to pull the plug on the outdoor ceremony and just move everything inside, but everything worked out perfectly and they were able to still have their ceremony outdoors without even the lightest sprinkle of rain. I helped Kevin out a bit more with this one since it was pretty overcast and so I don't have quite as many photos from this one but here are some of my favs from what I did get.
