I spent yesterday assisting Tauran Woo photographing Diane and Paul’s wedding. It was in the beautiful Pacific Palisades over looking to deep blue sea. The ceremony and the reception was at the Bel Air Bay Club. It was quite hot and humid yesterday, but it turned out to be a stunning wedding. As the sun set in the west they said there vows committing there lives together. They were surrounded by many friends and family. It was an honor and a pleasure assisting Tauran Woo and capturing this very sweet couples special day.

During our trip in Romania we went to the countryside to visit Mircea’s family. The life in these small villages is a lot slower, with sheep herds grazing on the hills and in the evening the cows come roaming home, with their bells slowly clinging. There are usually older people out in front of their homes, talking and enjoying the coolness of the evening. But there are younger people there too, usually on summer vacation at their grandparents houses, enjoying being out of the city. Read more
Last Monday, Mircea and I went into the center of Cluj Napoca to meet up with a model that we were going to do a possible photo shoot with. It was a very hot day as we were sitting at that table drinking our lemonades. We were chit-chatting for quite some time when all of a sudden I looked across the street and saw something out of the corner of my eye. I continued to look across the very busy street and there was this little kitten that came walking across this driveway meowing really loud. We could hear the meow from where we were sitting and I began to get very concerned. Read more
A weekend ago we travelled with Mircea’s cousin, Alex, to several towns and destinations. The first place we went to was the medieval town of Sighisoara, which sits on a hill overlooking the valley below. It is the only such town in Romania that is still inhabited by people. We arrived during the night and walked the old cobblestone streets looking for a place to eat. The whole town has been renovated and it is very lovely, small, bright, and clean.
So far we’ve been pretty busy in Romania, and although I’ve been taking many pictures, I have only been able to edit a few. This week we spent a lot of time in Cluj. Despite the heat, we’ve walked around the old part of town, the city center, and even went up one of the hills to a hotel where we got a good view of the town. I took the image below after we climbed down and walked past the tramway route. All the wires are used by the tram and the electric buses. The public transportation is very efficient in the city, and we have never waited more than two or three minutes for a bus.
This week we spent most of our time in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, Mircea’s birth town. Cluj is actually the cultural center of Transylvania, and is a mix of old European city with communist era block towers surrounding the old city center. We’re staying at Mircea’s apartment, where he grew up, which is in a nice neighborhood on the tenth floor, overlooking the surrounding hills. Read more
Yesterday I spent my afternoon photographing Valentina, this precious little newborn angel. She has the sweetest disposition and was such a joy to photograph and be around. She didn’t sleep much at first, but she didn’t fuss at all. Her little eyes would just gaze around, her tiny arms and fingers curling to her face. Read more
Y esterday morning Tauran Woo and I went to San Diego to shoot Iris and Jason’s wedding. It was a stunning drive along the ocean.

There are many things that I love about assisting, but one is that I get to learn (not to mention from an amazing photographer). Read more
