Choc-Walk At Disneyland

Hey everyone! Just wanted to post on the blog this week about the Choc Walk a few weeks ago. It was my first time ever participating in a charity walk, and I really liked it! The walk was held at Disneyland, and was super fun because they had it all decorated for Halloween! The walk itself was about two or three miles in length and they had us start at Disneyland walking all through the park and then we walked over into California Adventure for the second part of it. Turns out a normal day at a theme park is more walking than what this was–and it didn’t take long either! I would highly recommend participating if you ever get a chance. I also posted some photos of our adventure…have a great weekend everyone!

Kristan & Dave Same Day Edit

WOW! What a great way to start off the week! Kristan & Dave celebrated their wedding yesterday at the Montage. The weather made it seem like a less desirable day to hold a wedding…but our cameras picked up some really awesome clouds in the sky! Near the end of the night, we presented the same day edit and after everyone watched it they chanted: “One more time!” It was hilarious! So we played it again for everyone. My favorite part about this same day edit is the audio byte from J.P. Reynolds from the ceremony–he always words things just right. It was such a fun and relaxing day and with really great decor from Square Root and Jeannie Savage taking care of every last detail. Let’s not forget Joe Photo for giving us the photo here for our blog post. Have a great week everyone! Congrats to Kristan & Dave!

Kristen & Adam's Arthouse Edit

Kristen and Adam’s wedding was so much fun to shoot! I couldn’t believe it when I heard they had been dating for 15 years! They’re so cute and so much in love. I worked side by side with Dina from Andrena Photography–she’s awesome and very energetic….like myself :) So we had a great time together getting some killer photos at South Coast Winery. Check out Dina’s blog if you get a chance, some really colorful photos. Congrats to Kristen & Adam!

Fires

Couldn’t think of a creative title for this post… but that’s OK because there’s nothing creative about it. It’s just incredible how every year in October… almost like clockwork… the Santa Ana winds mysteriously start blowing out of the east causing almost every ounce of moisture in the air to evaporate. So maybe an old broken beer bottle chucked to the side of the road like 6 months ago, suddenly becomes a magnifying glass in the sun. Same as any other day, but this day it’s different since the brush it’s sitting on is dry as a bone as it hasn’t rained in months… almost a year… and the wind is blowing all that fresh oxygen right by it and then wa-la… you have a fire with limitless amount of fuel all around it to burn. This is Alex’s theory of how some of these crazy wildfires get started since they seem to spring up out of nowhere. Unfortunately though, some are found to be intentionally set by some idiot on a power trip (like the Santiago fire which almost caused us to evacuate our studio – they’re offering a $70k reward by the way to anyone who can find this sucker!). Anyway, my point is that it is amazing how powerful nature can be, and how a simple thing like a change in the direction of a wind can suddenly turn into a fire storm that’s burned down 1500 homes… not houses… HOMES. My heart goes out to all of these families. Here are some crazy photos from the Earth Observatory that show the progression of the fires over the last few days. That whispy white stuff is what we’re breathing… lots and lots of smoke and ash. ICK!! But at least we are very safe, our house is fine, and all is good. Thanks to Nate & Jaclyn for publishing one of these images on their blog which led me to the rest. Oh and if you want to lend a hand, you know who to contact: American Red Cross
