Back in February I met with Derek and Rose on a Saturday afternoon to shoot their engagement. The clouds rolled in on us and the chill in the air was dominant. Saturday’s wedding weather was polar opposite. It was an exquisite day. Flawless blue skies. Perfect Spring breeze. Sun rays beaming in between the old oaks at Hidden Hills. It was indeed the dream wedding day!

She falls asleep before a movie is half over. He forces himself to go to bed instead of watching another movie. She always picks up after herself. He drops wet towels on the bed. She buys snacks to keep her pantry stocked. He makes snack vanish into thin air. She puts dishes away. He leaves them where ever he finishes eating. She loves her dog. He loves his dog. Meet Rose and Derek…
During the ceremony I took my shoes off so that the minimal squeak would be nonexistent. I silently slithered around the room snagging shots from every angel. Angela and John’s wedding was gorgeous…but more to come on that this week. About half way through the reception a guest came up to me and told me that he wasn’t sure what my business name was but he knew what it should be…The Wedding Ninja. I had to laugh out loud and tell him how much I loved that title and it just so happened that I had already been nicknamed the e-mail ninja. We laughed and he said that a couple of times he had even bet a few of the other guests that they wouldn’t be able to find me. He actually came over to me as I was crouched behind the cake table shooting away to tell me that no one else could find me. LOL! He thought I moved like a ninja. I loved that!
When I met up with Angela and John last Sunday to shoot their engagement session I asked if I could use them as my guinea pigs for a fusion piece that I really wanted to create.
