The Shakes & Dear Kora | Orange County Documentary Photographer

Last night I attended a small show for local bands in Lake Forest, CA. The opener was The Shakes. They were a fun alternative indie rock band that moved people to dance which I really enjoyed. And next up was Dear Kora. I loved their emotional vibe and hint of Flyleaf tone. They really captured the audience and even had a mosh pit going at the end.

In the past when I have done concert photography I have solely focused on the band but now with the documentary mindset, I found myself focusing on the fans and getting the raw emotion of the show.

I shot in RAW but I put my settings to Monochrome (Black & White) in camera, knowing that I could see them in color later when editing. While editing, I decided I liked how the majority of photos looked in Black & White and stuck with that. 

Hope you enjoy :)

Sarah and I used to play Roller Derby together with the Orange County Roller Girls. Neither of us play anymore due to injury but it was fun while it lasted and I enjoyed practicing alongside Sarah and then competing against one another in a bout (game). When Sarah approached me about being her wedding photographer this Fall I was thrilled! We met up and she told me all about her grandparents home where she would be getting married in Pasadena and I was stoked to capture this special day for her and her soon-to-be-husband Shain. The home was a gem with a gorgeous backyard that was perfect for a small wedding ceremony and reception. Please enjoy these photos that Amy and I photographed.  

Thank you for stopping by my blog, I hope to meet you in front of my camera soon!

[Picture Love] Jon & Amanda Russell 9.26.15

I am thankful for family who support and believe in my art. Amanda is one of my cousin's best friends. Amanda booked my services early this summer and it was a client/photographer match! Her and Jon were a joy to work with and their bridal party was a blast! They are one big loving family and it made for a great wedding. Unfortunately Amanda got a massive migraine after the toasts and was unable to enjoy all of the evening's festivities but when she felt better, she came out for the last song of the night. Everyone was moved by the First Dance. It was really quite special. I hope you enjoy these highlights from their wedding.
