While photographing Celeste's Quince, we walked up to the balcony of the restaurant (Tamayo Restaurant in East LA) to take some photos. The only way to get up there though was to go through the attic. As we passed through I saw all those chairs and thought "This would be a great spot for a portrait!".
Sooo… once we completed the portraits on the balcony I stopped, grabbed another chair, asked Celeste, my model to sit down and prop her Chucks... er... shoes on the chair and started shooting away. Needless to say, the guy that was escorting us really looked at me funny at 1st… up until I showed him the photos. Same with the restaurant manager.
With all the weddings, events, and quinces that they’ve had there, guess they never had a photographer take a photo in that spot before. Hehe…

When I was growing up in San Diego, I never thought that I would ever make a move to Los Angeles. I had jobs that took me over to LA but that's about it. I loved my hometown too much to leave it. With plenty of sunshine, friendly people, and the beach ever so close by, who wouldn't.
Fast forward to the present. I now have been living in LA for the past 14 years. I'm married to a beautiful woman that was born and raised in East LA. We have 2 boys both born and being raised in LA. And my son Ben is a true blue Dodgers fan (I never ever thought that that would happen).
So do I miss living in San Diego? Of course I do! Do I regret moving to LA? After looking at my family, NOT AT ALL!!!
