Okinawa live music : David Ralston & Kanako Horiuchi

I recently spent some time filming a few songs at my good friend David Ralston’s caustic live. I have made a few music video’s for dave recently, but for me when he combines his smooth slide blues with a local Sanshin player like Horiguchi Kanako things get really cool fast.

 

Unfortunately a recent typhoon caused some damage to the venue and the stage lights were not working well, making the lighting near impossible to film in, but noise on the video wasn’t about to stop us from making a couple of cool video’s.

 

Hope you enjoy these video’s

Recently I have been shooting more and more fitness/bodybuilder images for women. I really love the challenge that comes from this style of photography; trying to show the rigidness and strength in the muscles, while keeping the images feminine, is quite removed from the softness of wedding photography.

 

Here are a few shots from a recent location shoot I did with an amazing athlete here on Okinawa Japan.

2013 in review

 

Well, here it is…the last day of 2013 and what an amazing year it has been. Personally & professionally, I have to say 2013 has been a bright point in my life. I have so many people to thank, I don’t know where to start… for now though, I put together a collage of some of my most memorable moments as a photographer this past year.

Here’s to a great year ended and an even better one beginning

p.s There were so many beautiful weddings I was a part of for many of the resort chapels on the island also, but I don’t think I am allowed to share those images on facebook 

Thanks again… ADAM L

 

Okinawa beach wedding

Samantha and Nicholas contacted me about having a vow renewal ceremony on the beach in Okinawa before they moved back to the states, and I was stoked to be involved.

They wanted a simple service on the beach with their two kids, Nathan & Ava, to not only solidify their commitment to each other but also to include their experience here in Okinawa. I was super stoked to be their photographer and also to be entrusted with putting their service together.

Here are a few images we captured from the ceremony.

Affordable Okinawa Outdoor wedding ceremony

Bobby & Dominique wanted a simple and beautiful outdoor wedding here in Okinawa for just their family and close friends. A simple and affordable wedding ceremony is a hard thing to come across in Okinawa, the resorts are everywhere offering the dream wedding, but they don’t seem to cater for people who are looking for a more down to earth wedding day experience… That is where I enter the scene.

After meeting with Dominique and Bobby we worked out a very simple plan, just their family and friends, an outdoor setting, a minister to perform their service and of course me as their wedding photographer for both the ceremony and some post wedding location photos… On the day it rained all morning, but literally 30mins before we were all set to meet, the clouds broke and ran for the horizon and it was a beautiful and amazing afternoon wedding by the sea.

沖繩婚禮前的婚禮攝影師

I love these two people, in the span of a few short hours we went from strangers to friends and had a lot of fun in the process.

Rebecca & Sam were not only great fun to work with, but I was also able to play a small part in their engagement. Although they had already decided that they would get married someday soon…Sam had yet to formally propose…So for Rebecca’s birthday he flew her to Okinawa, booked a full day location photo shoot with me and took a knee with a beautiful engagement ring in his hand.

We also decided to shoot some video on this photo tour and see how it looked… hope you emjoy.
