party of two

Paul + Amy; engagement

finally finished the set. heres a few i'd like to share, had a blast shooting this couple. very fun!

i had this set planned out for awhile, wasnt really sure on how to approach... so i told him to tell her secrets. of course, couldnt hear what they were saying since i was behind the glass. one of my favorites with the stitching.

one of the few shots i actually used my flash. we took numerous shots at this setting, the doors provided a nice background.

inspired pose by one of their favorite photographers.

that grass was sure dirty and gets your skin irritated. paul's shirt got stained and my skin got all itchy. but it was well worth the shot i think.

gotta have the artsy shoe picture. told them to link pinkies to add artsy points ;)

tried to moriyama it up. bw high key, my attempt.

towards the end of the night of shoot 2, both my toes were in unbearable pain. but i had to go for the obligatory sunset shot. i was quite happy with the result.

one of my favorite shots from the whole set. from the condo, i had to do something "epic."

already one year


been rethinking back and a whole lot has changed in just one year! mind blown.. but its time to put it all behind and finally move on, me thinks.

recently visited a friend in yamanashi. such an awesome place, definitely will be visiting again soon. i absolutely love the countryside, so serene and beautiful.

from there, there i went to an onsen on top of a mountain with a lookout of the whole city at night. it was amazing. best onsen by far, hands down.. and only 700 yen!
after that there was touring the many sides of fuji-san. stunning, still puzzled by the fact that people climb that thing...

then there was the shibazakura matsuri. it was too early though, not all the flowers bloomed... after that there was this ice cave thing, pretty crazy.

overall the trip was awesome. felt so refreshed to whip out the camera once again.

please enjoy the pictures! :

moving on! photographed my good friend's wedding, mike and kaori. once again congrats on the newlyweds! had a fantastic time there and got to practice my wedding photography.
