For most people, Saturdays are a day for family and fun, a breath of fresh air after a long week. For me, Saturdays are the days I work the hardest at my job. Being a wedding photographer, many times I miss out on gallery openings and other art and community events. This past Saturday May 18th, I made sure to fit both into one day. When I heard about the "Do Us Part" show celebrating the sketch book release of Johnny Quintana, and saw the list of other artists that would have pieces hung on the walls, I knew I had to get there. From a wedding reception at the Wyndham Orange County in Costa Mesa straight to Pomona's Smoking Mirrors Gallery, no matter what I'm photographing I love to capture people. Needless to say, the artwork and the gallery was awesome, and I had the pleasure of meeting quite a few artists and hearing their stories. Thanks to all the artists and supporters that came out, and congrats to Johnny Quintana on his sketch book release party!
The wedding before the show.I was a bit late to the show and did miss some of the artists, live music and the car show. But work is work, enjoy the photos.
