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

Sara & Scott's Arthouse Edit

Sara & Scott’s wedding at Montage was incredible… not only did they have one of my very favorite color combinations for a wedding (brown & light blue – also Elysium colors) but they had an AWESOME party!! Everything about this event from start to finish was amazing… even their katubah was gorgeous! As you watch this, you’ll see lots of details planned by the couple w/the help of Details Details such as a signature blue martini, and twinkle lights hung on the ceiling. Victor Sizemore took the snaps (see some of them posted on his blog). Congratulations Sara & Scott!

This wedding was really fun to shoot… I got to work w/Ron Levy who is always a blast, and the party ROCKED! The coordinator Carrie did a great job organizing everything.

Elysium Meets Roy Firestone

A couple of weeks ago we were hired to shoot a motivational speaking engagement for Roy Firestone. You may recognize Roy as he has done countless interviews with sports and film stars on network television, in additional to appearing in several major motion pictures, including Jerry McGuire.

Jeff and Desiree (shown below with Roy) helped GMR Marketing and Roy’s crew put together a three-camera shoot documenting Roy’s address to a group of executives. The executives hailed from large corporations all over the country, and were attending a week’s long seminar on alternate sources of energy, sponsored by BP.

In additional to doing comedic impersonations and relating some very entertaining stories about celebrities, Roy also presented the group with several moving and inspirational stories about people who had touched his life. Thanks to Roy, BP, and GMR for allowing Elysium to be a part of this exciting event.
