Mass Transit

Wrapped up a few more engagement the past few weeks, with such a diverse downtown San Diego has unlimited options. Very popular is our in your face Red MTS system, great for ride alongs, or longer exposures to play with movement. Ferries, taxis, pedicabs..what other public transportation services have you used for engagements & weddings?

BBQ Photography

I have some very specific weaknesses when it comes to food. Love all you can eat sushi! Chinese takeout, yeah. Thai? Yep, Tuesday used to be Thai Tuesday in our house. We constantly comment about maybe having latino roots as we eat spicy Mexican every few days. Maybe we just love eating period!

One of my personal favs is real BBQ. Not weiners and paper thin frozen mystery meat patties, I’m talking smell from a mile away wood burning. If it’s an option in a given situation you’ll always see me reach for tritip & ribs before falafel & pizza. Problem #1 is always going to be: If you don’t live in the BBQ regions you’re going to have to look hard for the goods. One city you don’t have to worry about badass BBQ in Seattle, The Boar’s Nest Delivers. So good. And the best part is Gabe’s regional sauces. Originally from North Carolina, Gabe has recreated 4 of the country’s top regional BBQ sauces. Their sauce is available via Amazon Fresh is you’re in the Northwest.

In another life I run a BBQ restaurant too lol. Maybe someday, but for now I will have to live with eating it, shooting it, and judging for BBQ contests on the West Coast. They twisted my arm, ow! Ok, I’ll try ribs, tritip, brisket, and chicken from 23 teams, I might need a few beers to cleanse the pallet, thx. It was time for another round of Gabe’s sauces now that it’s been picked up in 18 more stores.

Unconditional Surrender

The Unconditional Surrender statue in San Diego is the depiction of a famous photograph taken by Alfred Eisenstaedt in Times Square on V-J day – August 14, 1945. A sailor was running down the street grabbing and kissing any and every girl in sight… young & old. Alfred instinctively waited for him to approach this nurse and snapped 4 shots, one of which would appear later that week in Life magazine and become a cultural icon. The statue is extremely popular for military couples, we took at jab at it recently and am very happy with it! San Diego’s statue is appropriately located directly adjacent to the Midway Aircraft Museum on San Diego’s waterfront. After the statue we hit Sunset Cliffs as the light faded. It’s off to Miami in December for the wedding! unconditional surrender   sunset cliffs engagement picture   sunset cliffs engagement photo   sunset cliffs engagement
