Rick & Tara

Images from my friends Rick & Tara's beautiful wedding in Scottsdale, AZ. Even though I was there as a guest, I couldn't help but "kind of" second shooting their special day. Muchos gracias to my beautiful and very pregnant wife for allowing me to run around with my camera and doing my thing.

                                     Obviously had to sneak my gorgeous wife in here...

This is Lily. I was visiting my favorite bartender today ( he recruited Lily for my strangers project. She's a bubbly & smiley waitress at Five Star. By the way, Five Star has a pretty funny tagline: "hide your cats". Yupp, Five Star is a Chinese restaurant. Lily is from Mexico City and moved to the U.S. at 14 years old. She's worked at Five Star for 10 years and she (along with her husband) is opening up their own place next month. It's a Tequila and Empanada bar. Being a Tequila affectionado, this came as very exciting news to me. They will feature regular Tequila tastings and will serve an eclectic variety of empanadas. I can't wait to visit!

Lily is #33 in my 100 strangers project. Find out more about the project and see pictures taken by other photographers at

This is Frank. He works as a bartender at one of my favorite restaurants/bar - Busy Bee. When he's not bartending, he's writing, usually fiction, with healthy dose of social commentary. He actually has a typewriter tattooed on his chest. You can see the top of it in the picture. Frank's got an interesting background - he was born in Botoga, Columbia and his mom is Nicaraguan and his dad is American (he was stationed in Bogata with the U.S. military). As many military kids in the States, he's lived many places, including Reston, VA and West Point, NY. He knows his beer, wine and liquor very well and it's all from experience at the ripe age of 26...makes me wonder how he stays in such great shape. He says it's because of high metabolism from being a high school wrestler...hmmm...let's see when he hits mid 30s ;) A couple of years ago, he traveled to Cape Town, South Africa to explore his passion for wine and he ended up stayed for an entire year. He estimates he visited around 80-90 vineyard while visiting. Nice to know that I am in good hands while maneuvering through the maze of Busy Bee's very extensive selections.

Spotted a Shelby Cobra on my way to the gym. Can't tell you how immaculately this car was cared for...spotless, scratch-free and extremely masculine. It was parked outside a British car show area which I found ironic because I walked around the car show for quite a while and couldn't find anything remotely as attractive as this (no offense to my British friends). Wouldn't mind cruising around in a car like this...oh well...I am getting a scooter shortly, that'll have to suffice for now. I know a certain someone who will appreciate this shot...hope you like it!

I've received a few requests for photos of Michele's "progress" so I decided to snap a few during our walk today. I am sure she won't be overjoyed to see these up because she wasn't expecting to have her picture taken...oh well, I think she looks quite glowing :)

Bench Monday

Very much enjoying the fabulous spring weather...I wish we could bottle up these perfect days before it gets too hot.
