Lovely Pasadena Houses

There are many up and coming Real Estate Agents that are trying to appeal to the Generation X and Y market. It helps to have a relaxed and modern portrait to reflect what kind of market they would like to attract. If you know a Real Estate Agent that could use a new, out of the norm and fresh looking portrait, please let them know about my services.

Edward Levine is the founder of Premier Realty Team . He is a Real Estate Consultant and his business is focused in the Pasadena and surrounding areas.

We both agreed it was time to update Edward's Real Estate portrait. We also agreed that it was time for something fresh, different and on location. Definitely not a studio portrait which is common in the Real Estate industry. Something that would differentiate him from the multitude of other agents. Something to help attract more in his market.

Here are the results...

Marriott Residence Inn - Grand Opening

If you are ever in need of a nice place to stay in Downtown Burbank, ensure to stay at the Burbank Marriott Residence Inn.

Marriott Residence Inn
321 S. First Street
Burbank, CA 91502

All rooms at this Marriott are considered suites and size from Studio Suites to 2 Bedroom Suites. I had the opportunity of taking the tour of the Inn while photographing their Grand Opening. I was very impressed with the design and decor of the place. I would love to stay there!

The Grand Opening Gala was planned by my friends at Fresh Events Co. They did a fantastic job with the design! The night was fun and was topped by great music played by the Arnie Rios Band.

Here are some highlights...

Doyle from My Flower Guy is this very great and talented floral designer. His list of clients include celebrities, foreign dignitaries and former US Presidents.

On a personal level, Doyle is this very down to Earth guy. Doyle works so very hard on his craft as is evident in his final product.

I had the privilege of photographing his amazing creations for one of his recent weddings at the Beverly Hills Hotel. You will see amongst these photos all of Doyle's floral designs. From centerpieces to a grand Chuppah that started bare and ended superbly.

My Flower Guy is on the FotoNuova preferred vendor list.

I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph one of my favorite places in the whole world. Since the time of childhood, my father would bring us to Follieros Pizza on Figueroa. It has become known as our official family restaurant over our 30+ years of going.

The pizza at Follieros is outstanding and I mean outstanding!! Every soul we have taken to Follieros has agreed as well. I have tried some of their other dishes and have loved them too.

Owner Titina has taken over the family business and is continuing the Follieros tradition. In recent years, the restaurant has gained notoriety and is receiving much overdue praise. Stop by and ensure to enjoy the Pizza!!

Follieros Pizza
5566 North Figueroa Street
Los Angeles, CA 90042

Photos were commissioned on behalf of Latino Consultants

Here are a few photos of Follieros, a long time patron and Titina

The Wedding Salon

So I had this opportunity to be an exhibitor for a grand wedding show. The Wedding Salon is hosted in New York, Miami and Los Angeles. The Wedding Salon for this year was hosted at the 4 Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills.

We had the opportunity to meet so many planning couples. This was my very first show. It was so very nice to meet so many couples in person! We also had the opportunity to meet Wedding Planners and other Wedding professionals.

Planning the display booth took months. It turned out that I had too many samples and did not have enough space to display it all. As you can maybe tell from the photos, the booth was on the small side. I think the biggest hit with guests was the tree with hanging photos. The idea for the tree as a display was inspired by Wedding Planner & friend, Peggy Kelley from Timeless Celebrations.

At any rate, the phone has been pretty busy since. March of '07 is booked.

Here are a few photos of the FotoNuova display....
