Rheem & Edgar

Rheem and Edgar are my first engagement session of 2008! Not a bad way to start the year. They were such a fun couple to shoot; Edgar has a chill personality and Rheem has a smile that can light up the room! They're getting married in June, I already know from my conversations with Rheem that it will be a beautiful event.

Because it was raining so much in SF, we only shot part 1 of the engagement session. We will meet up once again in the Spring for part 2! For part 1, we started downtown SF and then headed to the Ferry Terminal.

I've been playing around more with the new post processing technique and applied more of it to this current engagement session. I really like the mood it gives the photos. Just so you'll see the difference, I am posting some of the before and after versions!

I really am digging this one!

Don't you like Rheem's shoes?

Haunted Sanitariums?

Roadtrips are the best and since I had a free day up in Tacoma, WA, I decided to take a day off and have fun. I found out about the ruins of this old and supposedly haunted Sanitarium in Tacoma, WA online. So of course, being a lover of ghost towns and supposedly haunted places, I had to check it out! I even got to meet up with a cool chick I met online. Gretchen and I have been talking about dogs and photography online so we decided to check out the ruins together. We really got lucky, the city was tearing down the ruins of the Sanitarium just right when we got there! There wasn't much left standing so after that we went exploring around the property.

There was a dog park nearby and look what we saw!

And some oldies of my niece =)
