Notice: I will book budget photography jobs per request. I am retired from photography because I am financially stable, not because I am unable. But photography still brings me joy. Please ignore my package/pricing. I will only take budget customers per request. I served Ventura County for over a decade. I've been to hundreds of weddings. Email me.

* If you have a normal budget, I am not a photographer for you. And PLEASE, I will not work for free. Expect to pay something. It takes me 5 hours just to get ready.

Oh, shoot.  I forgot to turn on my foot pod when I arrived at the wedding site.  So my total walking distant is shorter than what it's supposed to be.

Project: Photography Fitness, July 26, 2008 Wedding

This was my third wedding with my heart rate monitor.  I am beginning to see the relationship between the temperature and calories burn.  I burn more calories when the weather is hot.  My heart beats faster when the weather is hot.  Today was not as hot as last 2 weddings.  Today I burned the least amount of calories. I burned 1844 calories (compared to my other 2 wedding with 2754 & 2208 kcal expenditure)

I walked 4.8 miles today.

Coffee Cup: Heritage Square & Point Mugu

Wedding: July 26, 2008 

Wedding ceremony was at Heritage Square, Oxnard.  After the wedding I went to Point Mugu for beach photo-shoot.  Notice how the sky is gray at the beach. 

After the beach photo-shoot, we went to Simi Valley for a reception.
