Did you catch this season of Game of Thrones? After hearing so much about it from really enthusiastic friends, I finally checked it out and now I’m completely hooked!
With all the talk of swords, kingdoms, ale and dragons (Khaleesi!) several friends and I decided to venture off to this year’s Renaissance Faire, which is held annually for several weeks in Irwindale. I must confess - we all ended up having waaaay more fun than any person should ever be willing to admit (and I’m sure the cider helped!). So much fun that I actually went back a second time to indulge in the merriment all over again!
The RenFaire was certainly a feast for the eyes….and my lens! I’m so glad I brought my camera with me…..whether I’m shooting film for client sessions or personal work, it always fills me with so much joy!
If you’d like to add any of the above images to your photographic collection, be sure to swing by ReForm School in Silverlake this Friday or Saturday (June 15 or 16). I’ll be there with the Black Lodge Collective for our Father’s Day Trunk Show. I’ll be offering Fine Art Prints and will have information on booking Family Lifestyle Sessions to surprise the Dads in your life. I can’t wait to see you there!
I love pre-wedding parties. Not only are they a great excuse to get together with friends and loved ones, they are also fantastic way to extend the celebration and really do help to set the tone for the upcoming wedding festivities.
The night before their big day, couple Lindsey & Michael invited friends and family to join them at Kings Row GastroPub in Old Town Pasadena for some pre-wedding festivities. Between mugs of cider & craft beer and uproarious fits of laughter, party-goers arrived in waves to celebrate the couple and indulge in some seriously delicious pub fare.
Bride-to-be Lindsey sums it up in her own words:
We had a lot of friends visiting from out of town, including other countries, and we knew we wouldn’t be able to spend enough quality time with everyone at the actual wedding. Our pre-wedding-day-gathering was low-key and open-ended at Kings Row Gastropub, with people dropping in to say hi and catch up; combined with delicious craft beers and pub food, it was the perfect night.
The jubilant energy of the evening made it almost impossible to leave! If not for their wedding the next day, I suspect we would have closed the place down - it was so much fun! ♥
