Bomb Lomas

The 3rd annual Bomb Lomas skate day was today. Good show and good times. And I caught up with a couple old friends. Some skaters I shot last year, the Westside boys, were there and willing to go big for me. These guys are awesome to shoot with. They remind me of the old schoolers, like the Lords of Dog town.

Ben & Rachel Schaefer

My youngest sister-in-law, Rachel, just got married (5-23-09). She married a wonderful guy, Ben. And I was so honored when they ask me if I would be their photographer.
They could have hired a true wedding photographer, but they let me have a go at it. I think part of it is that we're family and the other part is they trust me. I did their engagement photos, so they knew what kind of photos I take. But it was still something I took very seriously.
On the day of the wedding, it wasn't good weather. It had been raining the night before and was still coming down in the morning. I told my wife that when we come out of church that the clouds would open up and the day would be beautiful. I can't believe that I was right. As we come out of the church, the bright blue sky shined on us.
The reception was a blast. I could tell everyone was having fun and was truly happy for the young couple.
Here's to the young couple!
