This was an awesome couple to work with. Two very intelligent individuals that made a covenant to become one family! I was soo honored to witness their sealing in the temple. One thing that the sealer said in the temple that struck a chord with me was that this young couple was becoming a 'kingdom' in their own little way. It was a very beautiful ceremony. Here's a shortie of their "First Look" shoot. Hope you enjoy! Filmed at the Oakland California Temple.

Sorry so late Patrice....but wanted to share this wonderful story of how these two love birds met. Congrats on a beautiful wedding. What a special day that was to be with you two in the House of the Lord. To witness your sealing with the rest of your family and friends was truly a blessing. Thanks for allowing me to be a part of your special day.

So I've started a new project in dedication to my mom. I've grown up in a single parent home for most of my life. I know the hard work it takes to be a parent with both "father" and "mother" in the home, but to have only one parent takes an act of godliness. In the coming months I will be posting photos of single moms and their families that I have come to know and love. This post is featuring a single mom that has been an inspiration to me. There's a lot of what I see in Lynell that reminds me of my own mom. Lynell has 3 beautiful children that can make any photographer look good!! Yah I was lucky! It was fun shooting them in the short time we had. Enjoy!! Shout out to my wonderful wife for being with me on this shoot. Thanx hun!

It was really a joyous occasion for this young wonderful couple. With all the trials of a wedding, it all comes down to making two people happy for one day. I truly believe that was accomplished. It was a wonderful day filled with hard work and excitement. I was honored to film and document this day for Anna and Daniel. Thank you for making AhquinMedia a part of your special day Anna! Just setting things up with a Teaser for now. Enjoy!

Here's a video I did a couple years ago when I attended art school. I'm trying really hard to do video and photography but it's a lot of work for one person. This year I would really like to focus on weddings but I just love music videos so I thought I would share this one. This was my first music video. I produced, directed, and edited this video all by my self. This was a really fun project. I'm sure I'll do it again but I need to stay focused.

In fact, lets stop right now...and get to some football photos. Enjoy!
