Joeseph and Kaori are such a cute couple. They did an awesome photoshoot in traditional kimonos and the time and effort put in to achieve the outfit is so impressive thanks to Toshi at Toshi Studios in Richmond! Afterwards we made a trip to Hotel Mac located in downtown Point Richmond which was the location of the wedding reception. We got to shoot in the restaurant/hotel all by ourselves which gave us a great opportunity to get some great photos!
I shot a great family session in Pacifica for an old high school buddy of mine and boy are his kids super cute! I am sure life can be a handful when you have twins, but when they are as adorable as Max and Chloe, I am sure they bring great happiness as well. They must be great older silblings to Nikko! We also got pretty lucky finding a nice and clear day in Pacifica at this time of the year.
It was another awesome Burning Man for 2014. This year’s theme was Caravansary which kept the Man simple but yet the tallest Man ever erected. The actual burn of the Man took forever because they built that thing so well!
It was my third year and every year is always exciting and different. It was also interesting to go back to back as I went last year but my first time was back in 2007. I love the culture and experience of it all. One of my favorite things about being there is just connecting to people. I love to just wander and explore and just have conversations with strangers. The conversations that exist there with people you just meet are beyond what you could ever imagine. Its incredible and I wish it was as easy to have that opportunity every day.
One thing that was different for me this year was the fact that most of these photos were actually taken with the Olympus OMD EM-5. I had a 12mm, 24mm, and a 45mm lens and it was so much lighter than carrying my DSLR everywhere I went!
