Good evening from Huntington Beach everyone! I’m back at Esquire Photography HQ after photographing Risa & James for their Laguna Niguel Wedding at the Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel. You might remember me mentioning on Twitter & Facebook their upcoming wedding last weekend as I introduced them to my friend & writer; Kim from the LA Times who interviewed them for a story that she’s working on for the paper.
Well have I got a fantastic treat to share with you. This week I was invited to photograph La Jolla Group, Inc.’s holiday party at The White House Event Center in Anaheim. If you’re not too familiar with the La Jolla Group, Inc., check out some of the information about them from their website:
“La Jolla Group, Inc. (“LJG”) is the world’s premier multi-brand apparel licensing company, with a portfolio of prominent brands including O’Neill Clothing USA, …Lost Clothing, Metal Mulisha Clothing, Rusty Clothing and True Love & False Idols.
With five successful brands, over 400 employees across the U.S., 6 successful retail locations — including O’Neill’s flagship store in Anaheim, CA, and the expansion of its Irvine, CA-based headquarters into a state-of-the-art 200,000 sq. foot facility, LJG continues to evolve and leverage synergies across its platforms. LJG brands are sold in over 3000 retailers in the United States, as well as Europe, U.K., Canada, Latin America, Australia, and Japan.”
This is one SIIIIIICK company doing great things & helping keep the California economy alive & flourishing!
Soo…being a bit of an adrenaline junkie with a third of my 29 year career in photography being in XSports, Rock Bands and Commercial Fashion – having shot everything from snowboarding, skateboarding, inline skating, Grammy Award winning bands like Duran Duran & Limp Bizkit, I jumped out of my chair when I got the phone call from Kathy Miller at Activities So Cal.
Activities So Cal hosted and catered the awesome holiday party, DJ Chris, Eddie & the crew from Above The Crowd Productions killed it with the lighting and music all night and Mr. Ryan Zackon and his professional staff from Dynamic Protective Services kept a tight lid on security for everyone.
Mr. Toby Bost, the CEO of La Group, Inc. (Who by the way is not only one of the youngest CEO’s in the industry, but keeps LJG on the bleeding edge in the biz. Which I’m sure explains why they’re so successful!) gave up some props to the LJG staff and introduced The Banana Hammocks led by Rich Wilson from Lost Clothing for a guest rock concert in the West Wing. The party went on well into the night and was completely off the chain!
