Jorge and Pam
I have a lot to thank my buddy Jorge for. I first met him as The Section Quartet‘s new manager, on the way to my first Coachella (to which he arranged my credentials), way back in 2006. Although I called him George for the first half of the weekend he persevered through my unintentional ignorance, helping me to keep my schoolyard giddyness at bay through my first big shoot.
Over the past (almost) five years he has helped me more than I can possibly thank him for, and photographing his wedding was the least I could do. I was so happy he and Pam asked me to participate on such a beautiful day on the Santa Monica beach. Even though we were surrounded by tourists, beach goes, muscle men, and even a guy in a bear costume, everything seemed to center around them. The images came out beautifully, due in large part to the incredible personality they both bring to the world.
The ceremony was held on the Santa Monica beach in front of thousands of onlookers. It was an utterly unique experience.
After the ceremony Jorge and Pam we headed to the reception, which was held at the end of the iconic Santa Monica Pier…
… in the midst of tens of thousands of people …
… and a guy in a bear costume!
I can’t thank Jorge and Pam enough for asking me to photograph such an incredible day.
