Viloria-Agron Wedding – 04.24.2009

CHICAGO, Illinois — Christina (Tina), the bride, is an old friend of mine from way back.  I met her through my friend Aine when I was interning in 1997 at Argonne National Laboratory.  Tina called me late last year to see if I would cover her wedding.  How could I say no.  Tina is a great and generous friend!  My brother Paul and I stayed at her house in Kauai!  As a matter of fact, her house is on the mountain where Spielberg filmed the “flocking” scene in Jurassic Park.  Did I mention that she killed the monstrous cockroaches that I was too petrified to exterminate myself?!

Come to think of it, Christian, the groom, was the first ask me to shoot his wedding while I was shooting the Valdez-Dungca wedding last June.  I’ve known Christian for a few years as well, but wasn’t sure if he was serious about the coverage.  I guess he was!

Upon arriving in the Windy City, I was greeted by my luggage at baggage claim (fast service if must say so) and a black limo and driver; well not really, the limo was actually a black Honda Accord and the limo driver was Christian.  It was no doubt an errand and tie-up-loose-ends kind of day.  At the time, I thought I was shooting solo, so I decided to cover Chris at the barber shop.  His barber is amazing!  He used a razor blade to cut’em up.  I was impressed by his control and skill.

I was blessed by the Almighty and had two excellent shooters on-hand: Kuya JoJo and Conrad.  Man, these guys have the gear and skills to cover.  Awesome.  Conrad had two 46″ Photek umbrellas that improved our group portraits big time.  I actually ended up ordering one because of the quality it bought us at the chapel and the Hyatt Regency (O’hare).  Check out our work.  This is the Castelo-David Photography  Collabo, foreal!
