Happy Birthday Marissa!!!

Personal on June 19th, 2009

Today is Marissa’s birthday. What can I say about this fabulous woman who has inspired so many people (including myself?!) This gal is more than a stellar businesswoman, entrepreneur, photographer, and business partner. Having the opportunity to observe her in her personal life, I have been able to see that for Marissa, family is way more important than anything else in life. She is a wonderful wife, daughter, granddaughter, cousin, soon-to-be-aunt, and she is a loyal, sweet friend to all who know her. Marissa, thanks for being the best business partner (or bitner, as you call it) that a gal could ever ask for. But more than that, thank you for being my friend! Happy Birthday! Love, Kimee (K-dawg, bitner, ‘Ruth’, etc). :)


Here are a few photos from Marissa’s birthday celebration last week. This was SUCH a fun night!!! (It was also Leah’s birthday… happy bday, Leah!)

When you’re editing video footage, it’s inevitable that you will stumble upon a few bloopers now and then (or, in our case, ALL the time). :)


SEO Workshop for photographers @ the Ritz

Inspiration on June 11th, 2009

Hey everyone! Just wanted to let you all know about this awesome SEO workshop for wedding photographers. We had the opportunity to attend this workshop last week, put on by Lawrence of Furious Photographers. This guy really knows what he’s talking about. (Case in point:: do a google search for ‘los angeles wedding photographer’ and see where Furious Photographers ranks). We got to hang out w/ some old friends… and also met a few new friends that we hadn’t met before. All of the people at this workshop were complete Rockstar Photographers, and it was such an honor to be invited to hang out and learn at this workshop! We got to hang with… The Bui Brothers, Dane Sanders, [b]ecker, Keats Elliot, Sarah France, Lauren Hillary, Ann Hamilton, Gene Higa, Aaron Dieppa, Victor Sizemore, Jules Bianchi

On another note… The workshop was held at the Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel in the greatest suite, overlooking the ocean! The Ritz Laguna Beach would be a perfect location for M & I to shoot your boudoir photography session… if you’re interested in booking a shoot with the Divas, email us!
