Good morning from Huntington Beach everyone! I want to go on record that this is one totally happy & excited portrait and wedding photographer that has had quite the whirlwind of a week that I’ve been sharing with you on the site.
From returning back to Huntington Beach after attending WPPI in Las Vegas with nearly 16,000 other photographers from around the world, to the EMERGENCY West Coast Wednesday Video Of The Week with the world premier of Lady Gaga‘s new video; “Born This Way” to Cara & Eric’s New Family/Baby Portraits to the absolutely awesome honour of being included in an Article with the PPA (Professional Photographers Of America) helping other professional and wedding photographers on the importance of getting your studio out there with trade shows and expos.
Well as if that’s not enough going on this week… Here’s the Golden Egg! Las Friday, no less than 24 hours upon returning from WPPI last week & I received a text message from a colleague down in San Diego asking me if I was interested and available to photograph an Oscars event at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles last Saturday – covering the freakin’ awesome artist; Kate Mesta with all the amazing celebrities there.
Let me clear my throat… *Ahem*…. I had the biggest resounding YES with her & all I needed to know was where & when. Can I get a “Wholly Nachos & Newcastles!”
If you’re not too familiar with Kate Mesta, check this out!
Kate Mesta creates all of her jewelry in Laguna Beach, California. Every piece of Kate Mesta’s work is a one of a kind piece of art to wear. Her work has been featured in many celebrity events. Kate Mesta is inspired by the fashion industry and attends many events to keep her line very fashion forward. She has a great sense of style and creates each piece to be a unique work of art to wear.
Can I get an Elvis inspired; “Uh Huh! Uh Huh!”
The event was bursting at the seams with people coming in from all around. If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, then you would have seen some of my updates for all the amazing stars that were in attendance. Here are just a few: C. Thomas Howell, Cheryl Tiegs, Twilight’s Boo Boo, Omar Miller, Elizabeth Gillies, Temara & Tarik Ellinger & Jane Lavin, Cobi Jones, Master P., NSync’s Joey, Jon Huertas, Genevive Wilson (from the award winning short: Turning Japanese), Bobby Brown, Nadia Bjorlin, Drew Carrey, Todd Lyght, Neil Everett, Lou Diamond Phillips, Blake Lewis, Tony Douolani, TITO ORTIZ!, Chris “Kid” Reed, and Verne Troyer!
