Other than the workshop and some vacation time, there was one other thing that got us really excited when we visited Maui, Hawaii recently. We met up with friends and fellow photogs Tim and Natalie of Reminisce Photography from New York! They are such a cool laid-back couple to hang out with. We thought it would be fun to drive around the island and snap some photos of each other, and it was! We started out at Twin Falls, then explored a bit of Iao Valley, and finally ended up on the beach at Makena Cove as the sun was setting. Just looking at these photos makes me want to drop everything and go back. And I really hope to see these two again soon!

Today’s weather, like every cold overcast rainy day, reminds me of London. In a good way! I’ve been organizing old photos lately and I came across our London trip around this time last year. I realized that I never properly shared some of our photos from the trip. We went to attend a photography workshop and met some fellow photogs but we extended the trip to explore London and the surrounding area. We visited an old time good friend of mine from the Philippines, Ate Cathi, who now lives in England with her fiance, Tim. They showed us around to all the must see spots. We also went off on our own to explore the myriad markets throughout the city and even went down to Brighton Beach. Apart from seeing friends, old and new, our favourite parts by far were riding the underground and exploring the markets. These are a combination of digital pics and some film scans from my Lomography Diana F+. Not a month goes by without us saying we need to go back. We miss the workshop homies, our friends, and even our Russian Airbnb flatmate, Max. We miss you London!

Josh and Erin love the atmosphere, feel, and architecture of downtown Tulsa, Oklahoma. Since Erin actually works around downtown, they have many memories there and it just made sense to photograph their session where they can be comfortable and just be themselves. They’ve been happily together for about 10 years and they decided to take the leap! Josh took Erin out to the exact spot where their grandparents proposed at a lakeside in Ardmore, OK. Who knows, maybe the universe left some magic there that keeps people together. It doesn’t hurt but I think all these two need is each other. They are such a kind-hearted and happy couple. The afternoon was so much fun darting back and forth with them across the streets. And it was nice to step back from it all with their dog Maynard at Centennial Park and watch the sun set over the city. We can’t wait to shoot these lovebird’s wedding this year!
