The Bat Cave, Valerie and Michiko

Valerie and I have been best friends since we were 17ish. In the eleven years of our friendship, we’ve lived on separate coasts for 9 of them. Now that I’m back in Los Angeles, we are getting to know each other again. I don’t have a lot of really close friends, and certainly none that have been a part of my life through so much, so many heartbreaks, so many triumphs, tribulations and life changes.

We had a great day hiking up and down the hill to the bat cave with Michiko, who played the ukulele, and Trevor who did the sound and will be doing the actual editing of the video, which I’ll post when it’s ready! I mostly shot video, but here are some images and still from the day!

My apologies for the long and lonely stretch, dear blog. With only four weddings left this year, 3 of which are out east, we’ll be traveling traveling traveling. But for you blog, and for you, my dear clients and future clients, I am now the proud new owner of a laptop, so the office will be traveling along side me this time. California is showing her best side to us these past couple of weeks as we piece together our new lives, before we must part again for the month of October, as I’ll be spending it in my old hometown of Queens at the home of a dear friend.

Caroline and Ryan are getting married this weekend! We hung out last month at the Storm King Art Center in upstate New York. One of the greatest things about having left the city and living in the country last year, is that it really opened me up to shooting in places I never would have before – as the prospect of escaping from New York City when one is so entrenched is always a tiresome prospect. And Though Windsor, New York is about an hour from our former home in Great Barrington, the drive was pleasant, and filled with the beauty of New English country roads.

We hiked hills and explored art and I took pictures of their love and friendship. We reveled over the beautiful day it was, the stunning vista, and the sneakiness of wedding dates. I was happy for the exercise, as at the time I was still emerging from my initial pregnancy misery. And what a beautiful day it was!
