I Was Invited To Pictage’s Open House, Bumped Into A Celebrity Wedding Photographer And Honoured With Autographing My Photograph!

Newport Beach Wedding Photographer Google Glass Explorer Paris Portrait PhotographerGood evening from Esquire Photography HQ everyone!  As I’m sure you’ve been keeping up on all the exciting events I’ve been sharing on Twitter & Facebook – I was recently chosen as a Google #GlassExplorer AND invited to perform on stage in New York & Edinburgh, Scotland for the parody: Miserable Lesbians all the while kicking off the EPIC Military Discount Program.

ALONG WITH! I was invited by my friend & fellow Toscar Alumni: Gene Franklin Smith to photograph the private reception for the Malibu Playhouse in Malibu on Sunday where I met long time actor: Dick van Dyke.

Fast forward a little & last week I was invited to attend the Open House at Pictage and with my invitation – I received a note to submit one of my favourite photos.  I wasn’t sure which photo to choose & asked you guys to choose which photo I should submit – which you, the readers, viewers, fans & friends practically unanimously chose was the portrait of Emma that I did for her photo shoot in Paris, France.

Well last night was the event & while I was there, I had an opportunity to chat with celebrity wedding photographer; Joe Buissink.  He’s a totally great guy, down to earth & recently he had the opportunity to photograph Michael Jordan’s wedding.  I so totally am eager to see those photos!

The Open House was totally awesome at Pictage – with a completely full room of amazing photographers from around Southern California.  But what was a regular open house to me – was drastically changed as “Pictage Monty” invited me to his office.  When I walked into his office he had the portrait of Emma printed out & on a table with a marker and… he asked me to autograph it so he could hang it on the wall.  Can I say: WHOLLY NACHOS & NEWCASTLES!?!

I was completely humbled, flattered & felt totally honoured that he would ask me to do that and of course me, being me – I had to record the entire experience so I could share it with you.  Which is what I have below for you in a fun video of the two of us.

Pictage has been serving Esquire Photography for nearly a decade with prints, off-site backups and all of my albums as well.  They’re a fantastic company with terrific leadership and what is even better about it is Pictage is a company that’s run by photographers for photographers.  So for me; “they get it” with my needs and what I love to do for you, my fans, clients & friends.
