Hello due to tight schedule, I am not able to put a lot of pictures on Blog. So here is just a fiew. YES wedding
was very nice:) Hi End .. we can use that word;)
I have to tell you guys. I was really looking forward to shoot Monica and Vitaliy wedding. I knew
wedding is going to be very interesting.
Little bit about how Monica and Vitaliy found us. Monica found us thru website. I remember Monica called
me and one the phone and we talked about packages and photography. After phone call we setted up appt
were Monica and Vitaliy came from Bay Area (because it’s were they lived) to Sacramento for appoitment, to
look at albums and reserve wedding day. Obviosly I didn’t know this couple and they didn’t know me.
Right of way we started to talk about little things and this conversation came up:
They Vitaliy askes me if I travel to different states for weddings.
I told him that I do.
Than he asked me where I’m going soon and it happens that I was going to Philadelphia in May, so I told him that.
Vitaliy said “Cool what’s groom’s name”
I said “Daniel”
Vitaliy said I think I know him is his last name “Kochubay”
My jaw was on the floor, from million people in the world how did he know I was going to photograph that particular person.
I never told this to anyone! Out of shock I actually got up and was standing.
Turns out Daniel 5_31_08 wedding was living next to Vitaliy back in Moldova. What a small world. Especially considering
that Daniel was very good friends with my Dad.
IN FACT the pastor who was marring Angela and Daniel flew from Philadelphia to CA to Monica and Vitaliy wedding.
OK the iPhone story is interesting. When I was shooting “getting ready” part I couldn’t find my phone
so I used Vitaliys phone to call mine. Above photo is Vitaliys iPhone.
Here is somethign pretty cool. Vitaliy already stored Monica with his last name:…:) very cute… why edit later!.
This is like my cousin Lina, she changed her email profile to her future last name right when she got engaged.
But sadly there is another point I want to talk about. if you look little bit at the top you’ll see 916.812.8200
that’s my number. The reason why you see number but not the name is because my business never got stored
to Vitaliy’s iphone:(.. so little drama story there:0).
Guys were getting ready in Embassy Suites.
But i like the place where girls were getting ready much more:)
I was working together with www.Cineczar.com team. It’s always so much fun to work with them and
couples love their work. In fact I will be working with them again this Saturday and several times in September.
Very fun couple, it was so cool to work with them. I just wish we would had little more
time in the moring. House had so much potential. Actually I wish I could have 2 or 3 more hours in
this 10,000 sq feet custom house:) So many beautiful rooms, walls, backyard with fountains:) nice…
This is called 70′s old school effect.
This was definantly the most interesting “formals” that I have shoot.
It took place right at the place where Monica was getting ready. The house
was pretty big and I thought that we have about 15 people but when we
all gattered together was was 50+ people. It just didn’t feel like that
because of plenty of space.
Ceremony took place at Romanian Baptist Church. On three languages
Romanian, English and little of Russian. Not too long ago I also had Bolgarian
wedding, so I’m kind of use to the fact that I don’t understand language.
I thought it’s going to be harder to take wedding where I don’t understand
language, but to be honest with you it doesn’t make any differance. :)
