Garden Chapel Wedding Photography – Canoga Park – Torin & Anabel – 05/02/09

Last Saturday I headed up to the Valley to photograph Anabel & Torin’s wedding in Canoga Park. The ceremony and reception was held outside at the Garden Chapel. The weather forecast was calling for rain. I am happy to say that it held off all day for us, even though at some points the sky looked a little threatening. Blue skies even made an appearance as the day progressed. All in all it was a great day.

Hope in the City 2009 – Fashion Shoot

On Saturday I had the chance to participate in the fashion shoot for Mosaic’s “Hope in the City: The Other Side of the Tracks.” I was in charge of coordinating the photographers for the event this year. So when I sent out an invite to some friends asking for their time to give me a hand, I was pleased with the response. I was so happy to shoot with photographers with all different types of styles and skill levels. It was a great day for learning, teaching, encouraging, and networking for all involved. I didn’t get to shoot as much as last year, since I was managing all the photography going on. Plus the location I wanted to use was a little windy, to say the least, until the sun started setting. Make sure you read the bottom of this post for links to all the awesome photographers involved.

Just a few shots of the models getting ready. I am so thankful for my friends Lisa & Dan Soltis and them opening up their loft for us to use for staging and to shoot.

The rooftop at Lisa and Dan’s is pretty spectacular. I shot the whole time up there.

After the wind died down some I could use the section of the roof I really wanted to to use with a cool view of downtown LA.

These next two images were taken using a 1/2 second exposure.
