New Wedding Photography Blog

Hello,

I am still alive! I realized that I have not posted for a long while. The reason for this is because Doug and I are starting new business ventures that require a lot of our attention. Additionally, we are migrating our blog to a new location, so please bookmark it! It will be Furious Photographers Blog.com

There is not much on our new wedding photography blog except for a couple of posts because I am still in the process of finalizing some designs. Nevertheless, this blog will still be up for those looking for older references and for search engine optimization purposes. :)

Again, please bookmark our new blog because it will allow us to post even larger pictures from weddings, engagements, boudoirs, fashion, and much more. If you do not care to remember the long name, just remember Furious Photographers.com and there will be a link there on our splash page.

Peace out,

Lawrence

Pomona Valley Mining Company Wedding Photography

Greetings,

Last Saturday Lawrence and I photographed a delightful couple's wedding. We took Derek and Sharon's engagement pictures at Downtown Disney a while ago.

Sharon and Derek are totally cool peeps! They volunteered to be subjects for our wedding photography workshop hosted a while back. Although that workshop had many hiccups, we were able to meet new people and build new relationships. From that wedding photography workshop, we brought along a friend - Adrienne - who helped us photograph this wedding. In any event, Sharon started her day at the Pacific Palms Resort where lots of girls rushed to get ready.

Although I took better looking pictures of the wedding bands, I liked this one the most simply because of the words written on the box: DO NOT LOSE! HAHA that cracked me up!

Derek had something on his back that needed to be brushed off...

Since we were short on time, we decided to just go straight to their reception hall at the Pomona Valley Mining Company (Los Angeles) to conduct a quick private session. This venue overlooks the 10 freeway in Pomona.

This is something new that we are trying - light painting combined with wedding photography! There is no other wedding photographer that I know of that does this, so hopefully this will start a trend! We did not quite perfect it on this first trial, but we should have it nailed down for future ones. I intend to put up a full video tutorial in the future that instructs everything that needs to be done. Thanks Adrienne for helping us with this! ZAP!

Please check back soon because we have like five more posts we need to put up. Additionally, we are in the process of changing blogs, so check back soon!

Peace,

Seven Degrees Engagement Party

Hi hi,

I previously posted about an engagement session in Laguna Niguel with Nas and Gartzen. Following this couple's engagement session, we drove to Seven Degrees where they hosted their engagement party. Seven Degrees is a beautiful location with lots of wicked lighting.

Seven Degrees also hosts a lot of art galleries :D

Laguna Niguel Engagement Photographers

Hi,

Julie and I had the opportunity to photograph a cool engagement session at Laguna Niguel with Nas and Gartzen. We had a relaxing time just enjoying the scenery and taking casual pictures at random locations in Laguna Beach. Orange County (OC) has loads of neat places to visit.

The following images was taken on a patch of grass near the coastline of Laguna Niguel.

Nas wore some really cool shoes during this engagement session!

This sign originally said "Bank of America Customers Only," but I decided to alter it to their names instead.

While looking for a spot that overlooks Laguna Beach, we stumbled across this nice banister that has a nice message. Wanting to give more attention to the text, I decided to keep the image a silhouette.

Directly following this engagement session, we drove to Seven Degrees where Nas and Gartzen hosted their beautiful engagement party! That place is known for their gorgeous lighting.

Respectfully,

NYU Fashion Model

Hi again,

It was a rather busy weekend for the Furious Photographers team. I took a red-eye plane trip to New York on Thursday and arrive Friday morning. I had lunch with my god sister and then photographed the NYU Fashion show that same evening. After a few hours of rest, I had a private modeling session with Nia (one of NYU's fashion models). While I was in New York, Lawrence photographed a lovely couple's engagement session and engagement party at 7 Degrees in Laguna Beach, which is an absolutely beautiful place!

Anyway, Nia is a saucy girl with a unique flair. I am sure that you can see simply by how she dresses. I gave her full liberty to do what she wanted because I was exhausted from the previous night. I only obliged by clicking away for an hour or something.

Lawrence should have his post up soon. He is currently swamped with work because he is always trying to create new ways to expand our services. :) Stay tuned because we are about to unveil some rad stuff!

Best regards,

Doug
