Amy & JP of AJs Studio in Vancouver Washington have given us yet another tease of images from our wedding – this time in the form of a slide show. Check it out on their blog – It’s an amazing look at our big day. 😀

Six Pack To Go….

Filed under: Events, Portraits — True Blue Photography @ 12:32 pm

Six Pack to go is a Long Beach based band with rockabilly roots. They recently had a gig at the Blue Cafe in Long Beach and asked me to come along and take a few photos. They played some great original songs as well as some killer covers. To find out more about Six Pack To Go and hear a little bit of their music – be sure to check out their MySpace page.

Erik, Inez and Erik Jr met up with me at Heartwell Park in Long Beach for their portrait session. Since they wanted to use these for their holiday cards, they brought some really awesome hats, scarves and a huge blanket to help make it seem a little more winter-like. Hard to do in sunny Southern California but I think we succeeded. I just think these guys are the just the cutest!

Our Wedding…

Filed under: Personal — True Blue Photography @ 8:52 pm

Being a photographer it’s such an odd thing to be on the other end of the camera but our friends Amy & JP Prutch of AJs Studio in Vancouver Washington came out to take on ‘tog’ duty for our big day and made it oh so easy for us. Having trust in your photographer on the most important day of your life is SO important and believe me, Amy & JP had ours.

Although we planned the location of the ceremony as well as a couple of photo opportunity locations, we left the rest of the details to them. We also gave them plenty of time with just us. As a result we have some seriously kick butt photos. I’m going to post a few photos (with their permission of course) but if you’d like to see more, please check out their blog for more.

Ceremony time…

Did I mention that JP of AJs Studio is an ordained minister? He had double duty of officiating AND photographing the wedding. In a very personal ceremony JP was happy to take a close up photo of our first kiss as husband and wife while Amy covered the other angle. Very cool!!!

Special Thanks to Boyd, Jo & Chris of Boyd’s for making it possible for us to have some kick butt cars to ‘play’ with! We appreciate it more than you know. MUAH!!!

Bette and family winter 2007….

Every year I get the honor of photographing my kids (step) with their other mom Bette. This year was no exception. Be sure to check out last year’s session to see how my kids have grown. This time we met up at Shoreline Village in Long Beach for some fun, photos and a quick stop at the candy shop. 😀

Memoirs of an absentee blogger….

Filed under: Events — True Blue Photography @ 11:45 am

The holiday rush was amazing thanks to all of my fantastic clients. The big annual photographers convention in Tampa Florida was a whirlwind and I’m still in the throes of the Valentine’s rush – again thanks to you all. Blogging unfortunately has taken a second seat to life in general… for the moment. One more big thing in my life at the moment … Michael and I are getting married tomorrow. Yup… tomorrow! 😀

As a wedding photographer myself I thought it would be hard to pick a photographer to document my own engagement session and wedding and it was. Not because I was super picky but because I have so many great friends that are amazing photographers. It made it really hard to pick just one. So ultimately I ended up picking two. John Michael Cooper of alt-f photography did our engagement session in Vegas. He has an amazing talent and off beat vision that I love and his wife Dalisa is one of the sweetest people that I’ve ever met.

For the wedding Amy & JP Prutch from AJS Studio out of Vancouver Washington are flying down to photograph our wedding as well as take some pre-ceremony photos. Amy and JP are not only amazing photographers but they are like the best family you can imagine having only you didn’t get to meet them until you were grown up. To make it even more fun JP will be officiating our ceremony. I’ll be sure to post some photos of the wedding soon.

Since we’re doing a camping honeymoon in a couple of months, I’ll be back at work Monday afternoon and promise to catch up on my blog posts right after St. Valentine’s Day. 😀

A few photos from our e-session with John Michael Cooper.
