WESTSIDE THE CONNECTION PICNIC MAY 4TH, 2014

I had the pleasure of attending the Westside C.C. lowrider family picnic in North Carolina this spring, and I can say I was in AWE of all the beautiful rides and awesome people that came out. I was welcomed by all and was able to snap photos of some of the baddest Mid-Atlantic lowriders on the streets!

JUST KLOWNIN ANNUAL PICNIC AUGUST 3, 2013 PART 3

As I wrap up the last part of the coverage for the Just Klownin Annual Picnic I cannot wait to have to opportunity to cover the Individuals Picnic at the end of the month. The great time with all the family members at this picnic was something I had missed since being back home in California. And without a doubt the lows on wires definitely put a smile on my face and a skip in my step! Looking forward to more great times. And as a friend Manny would say PROVECHO HOMIES!

MOTIVATED BY HATERS HATE ON US CAR SHOW JULY 21, 2013 NORFOLK, VIRGINIA PART 1

motivated by haters car show

I had the free time to roll out to this show and get some good shots of the entrants. It was yet another hot and humid day in Virginia so keeping cool was a definite challenge. I had a GREAT day with THREE THE HARDWAY family, as they hooked me up with waters and a stash spot for my camera junk. There is a second part to this coverage…300+ photos for the day takes a little while to go through and make sure quality is represented.

Jae Bueno’s angel is watching

As the evening grew old I decided to stop by In N Out before I hit the hotel. I got my order in and noticed a lime green ride peeking around the corner of the building that wasn’t there before I got done ordering. As I cruised around the building I saw this 21 window VW micro bus. Jae loved some VW’s from fastbacks to bugs to these buses. I knew right away Jae’s angel was watching. I had to hop out and snap some pictures. Very cool owner and sweet ride. Thanks Jae for the sign! Love you sir!

Jae Bueno Celebration of Life Picnic

Following the burial at Resurrection there was a Celebration of life picnic for the friends and family of Jae Bueno. This celebration was not a sad event as this was a time to enjoy the times we had with Jae and in remembrance of him. A friend was lost but we all gained an angel above. Jae no longer hurts and is no longer sick. We all loved him dearly and will miss him greatly. His legacy will live on in his photos, his family, and his nephew Steven, who is knocking out great photos just like him.

As this will wrap up the series remembering Jae, I cannot thank all involved in the help of the family during these tough times. Danny D for putting Jae and his family first with the 1962 Chevy build and casket painting as well as support. Joey Hernandez and his family for also for putting Jae and the family first during this tough time. The love and respect from EVERYONE involved was off the charts. Jae has touched so many people and seeing them give it back 10 fold was terrific! I will miss Jae greatly and my heart is still missing him. I know it will be tough for the family these ongoing weeks, months, and years…Jae was a one of the great ones took way to soon. I am humbled by the generosity of Myles Kovacs for gifting me with the plane tickets to come out for Jae’s services. I am appreciative that Steph and the family allowed me to come out and mourn with them as well as shoot photos. And I thank all the friends and families that allowed me into their lives to photograph this sad time. I am truly appreciative. I love you guys and will be in contact more!

Stihl Inc. 2012 Family Picnic

Once again it is that time of year to enjoy the Stihl Inc. company family picnic. It was a GREAT event planned for the employees with a ton of great activities for adults and children alike. As usual Stihl Inc. went over and above for its’ employees and it shined throughout the entire event.

The weather played PERFECTLY despite a HUGE tornado laden storm the night before dumping many inches of rain across the region and causing quite a bit of damage.

July 4th in Atlanta

In front of the other 2 posts here is the coverage of our fun time in Atlanta for the 4th of July. As like previous years my brother closed off the parking lot to his pool and spa company and held a pretty kick ass bbq and fireworks montage. Only invited people were allowed in for the festivities. There were several individuals that were willing to pay to get into this prime spot for the fireworks but to no avail. We had a blast throwing firecrackers at each other and setting off all other varieties from flowers to bottle rockets to mortars. It was a great time and thanks to my brother and his partner Tom for setting up the event!
