I am such a geek.

Ok I said it I am a geek and many of you know it. So with that said I am happy to share what I learned this morning.

As I opened my sleepy eyes I reached for my phone (myTouch by T-mobile) to check my email and peek at the blogs that I stock, you know who you are, so any how I noticed that I had some updates to install, one being an updated version to Google Maps. This is an app that many of my friends and family cried with joy when I told them I would no longer be calling them from random locations to look up directions on how to get me out of a pinch. Remembering a few weeks back hearing about Google's Navigation beta (turn by turn directions with voice) I crossed my fingers hoping that this update would be the update of all updates. I installed and then quickly began searching google maps for new features. Not finding what I was looking for I quickly went the resource of all resources when it comes to andriod phones,
Sure enough on the front page I found what I was looking for

turn by turn directions with voice! Yes a FREE navigation system right in my phone. This is a happy day. No more trying to read a small dark screen while driving!

I think I might just have to drive some random places and see how well this works.

So all of you out there using iphones, top this! Love you Google!

Lovebug wedding style

"Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you are going to get." - Forest Gump

Yesterday, on short notice, I shot a wedding in Yorba Linda. This is one of the things that I like about about my job, I never know what I will be doing one week to the next.

Thanks guys for letting me be apart of your special day.

oh yes! LoveBug published in the OC Register

Last week I did an event for Make A Wish of Orange County / Inland Empire called Broadway Wishes. This event featured talent such as Megan Hilty (Glinda from Wicked), Paul Canaan (Broadway version of Legally Blonde), Laura Bell Bundy (also from Legally Blonde), Norm Lewis (Miss Saigon), and Laura Osnes (NBC’s reality show, Grease: You’re the One That I Want) to name a few. This event was truly an amazing evening with talent bursting at the seams.

Some of my photos can be seen on in the people watch section on slides 5, 42, 43, 44, and 45. In addition to photographing the event, I was able to meet some great members of the local press. Being able to socialize with others who understand my craft is always a treat.
