eSession — Cabanayan-Garrett (08.11.2012)

WHEATON, Maryland — I’ve been on a hiatus from shooting weddings and engagements (under Bradley David Photography) for a few years now.  But somehow, Rob managed to bring me out of retirement and it feels good.  Never satisfied with my work, I’ve spent the better part of last year and this year trying to come up with a new, evolved style; thanks to Ramon & Kristina and Oly of Metro!  Having the privilege of doing Rob and Alyssa’s engagement photos gave me a chance to test out what I’ve learned.  Both Rob and Alyssa were great to work with, letting me direct them into the shots that you’ll see in a few short moments.  I hope you enjoy the new look!

Location: Brookside Gardens

Quick Thoughts: Vibram FiveFingers KSO

Maryland — Today, I received my Vibram FiveFingers KSO.  I don’t remember where or when I heard about the FiveFingers, but I knew the idea behind barefoot running made perfect sense.  Rob, a close friend of mine, has been using them for a while and suggested the KSO model instead of the KSO Trek.  KSO Trek has a crazy tread pattern and uses Kangaroo leather; soooo soft!  Before I ordered a pair, I headed down to CitySports in Bethesda to get a feel for the size and fit.  I’m a size 9.5, normally, and the European 40 fit perfectly.  The build quality was excellent and look so much better in-person.  I picked mine up at Rock/Creek for $84.95 w/ FREE SHIPPING and NO TAX since CitySports was out of stock.

As a former high school track sprinter/runner, I’m used to running on the balls of my feet.  Unfortunately, those days are long gone and my joints and muscles aren’t like they used to be.  After I get some miles on my KSOs, I may follow up on here or you can just email me if you’re interested in my thoughts and opinions.  You can Google “barefoot running” since more qualified people on YouTube and various blogs have drawn-out discussions and analysis on the subject.

I took some shots of them before I jack them up on the street:

CP Boxing – 01.25.2010

Fort Washington, Maryland — This was a really cool shoot at Old School Boxing, located in the basement of Rosecroft Raceway.  The thing that got me was, from the outside, you’d never know it was there.  I went back and forth down Rosecroft Drive thinking I had missed it.  Lucky for me Cyprian answers his cell phone!  The gym is a very authentic boxing gym with, you guessed it, that old school atmosphere.  Inside, dozens of sweaty, yet welcoming faces greeted me as I entered the gym.  The smell reminded me of the wrestling rooms back in high school.  Weathered boxing gloves and old speed bags line the ceiling, while posters of boxing legends hang immortalized on the walls.  I’ll definitely make another run back there and shoot around.

    Client: Cyprian (CP Boxing)
    Location: Old School Boxing (Rosecroft Raceway), 6336 Rosecroft Drive, Fort Washington, MD, 20744-1921

David-Williams Wedding – 11.07.2009

BRENTWOOD, Maryland — What a blessing it was to have such beautiful weather on Mercedes and Richard’s wedding day.  I learned about my cousin’s wedding two weeks before today and asked if they wanted my cousin Jeremiah and me to shoot it.  I was pretty excited to visit my old neighborhood in Queenstown, right off of Chillum Road in Hyattsville, Maryland.  I had such great memories growing up there, so it was befitting that I continue making more on Mercedes’ wedding day.  Congrats, my beautiful cousin and my new cousin-in-law, J.R.!

Jarren and Jack

FT. WASHINGTON, Maryland — My friend Jackie called me earlier this week to ask if I could shoot the boys, Jaren and Jack, over the weekend since they were in town from New York.  I was more than happy to since I’m always looking to practice with the chil’ren!  I showed up to her parent’s house in Ft. Washington after Crystal and family took off for Montreal.  Jarren warmed up to me rather quickly, but I never earned Jack’s smile for more than a vanishing second.  Not even the trustly peek-a-boo worked.  Wow.  He’s one tough cookie to crack.

Hayag-Dela Rosa Wedding – 06.29.2008

TEMPLE HILLS, Maryland — What can I say?  Noreen and Noel are so chill and relaxed.  I don’t think these two know the meaning of mad?  I always see them laughing and joking.  Yeah, speaking of joking… After the reception, Noel, Noreen and I headed back to the Hotel Monaco Alexandria for more portraits.  I thought it was necessary to take our time and take advantage of the remarkable artsy flare at the Monaco.  Noel thought it’d be funny to adjust the seat warmers in the car to maximum while I wasn’t looking.  The two of us would be talking in joking and I’d be like, “Dang, my jonk is cookin’!”  Not cool, literally.  The sad thing is I fell for his conversational distractions more that once.  “Fool me once, shame on – shame on you. Fool me – you can’t get fooled again! (W).”  That guy.

Noreen did get a bit of car sickness.  Maybe it was the stop and go traffic on the Wilson bridge or perhaps it was my driving or both!  At any rate, she almost didn’t feel like shooting anymore.  Noreen took some time to decompress once we got back at the hotel by opening gifts and closing her eyes for a sec.  Here are some of the shots to prove that Nori is a trooper.

For main coverage, I had a fellow photographer Sohee Kim come out and shoot.  I worked with her during the Mun-Ko Wedding for Baltazar Photography.  Sohee’s a master at the bridal poses!  I learned a thing or two from her, no doubt.  Thanks, Sohee!
