    Shirley and Jason

    This was our first ever "White Friday" on a Black Friday. These two are an amazing couple and after being together for 8 years they tied the knot! What can I say it was an awesome day!

    What Shirley and Jason didn't know is that I got zero sleep for this big day! Being that my wife (Nicole Abalos) and I just got back on the 23rd from our honeymoon in Thailand. I still managed to pull off with the help of Nicole and Richard filming along side with me (they got the worst of my delirium haha)

    Anyways, It was an honor filming their big day for them! Congratulations to the newlyweds :D

    Kristine and Mike

    I met Mike aka "Sneeks" (short for sneakers since he's a collector) in 2003 when I flew myself out to their B-boy competition "City vs City 3" in Chicago which was my first out of state competition I won.

    Fast forward 8 years later Sneeks and Kristine fly my fiancé Nicole, my brother Jardy and myself to film/photograph our first out of state wedding! :D

    Kristine and Sneeks are just too awesome with their steez and their chicago accent heh. We had too much fun with these two and we thank them for having us film their big day, congratulations to you both!

    Faith and Mark

    A Santa Cruz wedding we'll never forget! Faith and Mark are so awesome. They're a couple who met on Match.com! Amazing! We had a great time filming especially being on the beach on such a beautiful day, it's been raining for the past couple days so it was nice to see the sun come out to play.

    Congratulations Faith and Mark!!!

    Olga and Lendel

    Our first out of town wedding! The first time I was able to talk to Olga and Lendel was interesting, it was hard for me to put a face on them since we usually meet our couples in person way ahead of their wedding. But since they lived down south the only way was to talk over the phone (we didn't think of skyping for some reason haha.) After talking to them and confirming I was super excited we'd be flying out to film their big day!

    When we met them at prep we already knew it was going to be a fun filled day! They were both excited which rubbed off on us.

    Towards the end of the night we had to show our same day edit... I was super nervous since there was someone coming in every 5-10min asking if I was ready to show it, I was like AHHH! But we were able to pull it off! After the wedding, Olga and Lendel wanted Richard and I to break for them so we got to do that as well, I wish we had our cameras rolling but it was already packed up...

    It was a really awesome first time experience for filming out of town! Thanks and congratulations Olga and Lendel!
