    Ahm en Joor Gess’book, Leevin cawments. This is a powerful collection, my dude! I wish I wasn’t colorblind! 😀

  6. Wow! I love the photos from Patrice and Joel’s wedding! But it was reallly fun looking at your nature photos. Very creative. A friend of ours took our wedding photos. You might like his work. His name is Luke Drapal and his site is Enjoy!

    • That’s some good work! I like his architecture set. I wish I could take more like that! Unlike brides, buildings will stand in one place forever until you’re satisfied with the shot. ^_^

      Nice link, thank you for leaving a comment!

    Wow!!! Josh great picture’s… Now you need to come to Monterey and take some picture’s of Brandon =D Or let’s all get together and hang in San Francisco some time.. =) But it would be better if you came our way, maybe even go to Big Sur =)

    June 28, 2010
    • Thanks Rosa! Would love to meet y’all out there someday! Haven’t been to Monterey in years!

  8. Hey Josh, love the Fruit Ninja banana slice photo! I’m Phil, one of the Fruit Ninja developers and we all loved your photo. Any chance you wanted to take some more shots with other fruit? We’d love to show them around. Feel free to send me an email to chat!

    Also, you’ll want to keep an eye out for Fruit Ninja HD, our iPad version of the game with some awesome new features including multiplayer. Should be out within a couple of weeks!

    June 29, 2010
    • That’s awesome! Just wanna say, you make a great addictive game! I didn’t really wanna buy Veggie Samurai because I saw it was from a different developer. Good to know there’s an iPad Fruit Ninja HD in the works! Fruit splatters are much more satisfying than cabbage.

      I’ll send you an email. Thanks for the visit and your comments!

  9. Beautiful gallery~ Greg sent me the link to his Mom’s wedding photos. After I saw those, I decided to browse through some other ones here. They are very well-done; aesthetically eye-pleasing! Keep up the good work and I might hire you someday. 🙂 Take care.

    • Thanks so much Kelly! I really appreciate it – Dad always had an eye for design, so maybe it carries over somewhat. Thanks again, hope to see you soon.

      July 18, 2010
  10. Also… Did you design the theme for this website or was it from a template? It’s very sleek, yo. Fo rizzle.

    July 16, 2010
    • Good question! I used to code websites a long time ago but now have neither the patience, skill, or time. ^_^ The main website is hosted by an awesome portfolio service called viewbook!
      The main theme elements like the logo and galleries and layout are all done by me, including the colors and menu, but Viewbook gives flexible templates and creation tools that made it really easy. So I’d say half template, half me.

      The blog is hosted by WordPress, and the current theme is called “Modularity Lite by Graph Paper Press” – which let me pick my own colors to match the main site.


      July 18, 2010
  11. Very interesting. I love coding and web design, so that’s the first thing I notice about a website. I’m trying to start my own website for my nature photos and crafts, just miscellaneous stuff. I want it to be cozy and green, like a beautifully sheltered forest, just a speck of cerulean sky here and there.

    Oh, I meant to say before, I like your Flickr gallery, too. Your profile on there is really comical, something I can relate to. Maybe see ya next time I’m pursuing Patterson. 😀 Take care~!!

    July 19, 2010
    • Thanks again! I see you have a nice blossoming collection of nature pics too! A cozy and green themed site sounds just right for that. 🙂

      Let me know if you get another site going, or if you’ll be up to visit soon!

      You take care too!

    Hey Josh,

    Awesome pics, you probably don’t remember me, but we came from Arkansas in July and you gave us a great tour of the facility. I really like your work and I will keep in touch, keep up the great work.

    Hey Josh! How many times have I gone by your cubicle and noticed your artistic talent! But I never knew you were into photography! My friend’s getting married so I decided to check our your website. You are really good at it! I particularly appreciate the asian shout-outs. Just wanted you to know I’ll be spitting your name out there!
    Keep up the great work!

    October 20, 2010
    • Wow, thanks so much Shannon! Actually, I think I was only drawing and painting when you were here… Photography is relatively new to me, but I took to it quickly! 🙂
      Many thanks for the plug if you bring me some local business, yeah? Asian shout outs!!! -_-

      Brides have commented that they did not notice me moving to and fro during the ceremony. Like a photo ninja… 😀

      Thanks again!

  28. Charley and Annetta’s pics are gorgeous. On such a rainy day too! You really caught the feelings in the moment despite the weather. That’s pretty impressive. No one would think it was cold and rainy. The pics are as warm and happy as everyone felt. Just a note: Don’t want to take credit for all the work for the wedding makeup. I just did the Bride. She’s didn’t need my help to make her look beautiful. But I am glad I was there. Awesome work. All your pics are lovely but a special place in my heart for Charley and Annetta’s…:o)

    March 10, 2011
    • Thanks very very much for the comment, and your contribution to the special day! You definitely helped enhance the already-beautiful bride to look her very best! 🙂 Thanks so much for dropping by!

    Hi. My name is Kendall and I go a Cong. in Queens. I saw a bunch of your photos and have been interested in getting into photography myself, whats a good starter SLR?

    April 5, 2011
    • Hi Kendall! Thanks very much!

      There are good starter kits from all the manufacturers. To go with the mainstream, I’d pick canon or nikon. Hold each one and whichever feels better in your hand, buy that one.

      The starter cams I would recommend are the Nikon D3100 and D5100, and Canon Rebel XSi and T3i.

    I have been looking at your site for several months now for few months. It is one of the best I have seen. I really enjoy looking at your wedding and engagement portraits they are great. I found your site while searching reviews on Nikon d7000. Photography has been my photography since my teens. I have had Nikon d200 with 18-200 kit lens for over six years now and have been doing some research to replace it with Nikon d7000. I shoot mostly family events such as birthdays, anniversaries and some budget wedding for friends and relatives. I do not have a website. I turn down lot of work because I feel I do not own top of the line equipment. I can afford to invest bout $2500 this year for for new equipment. Any information will help. Thank you.

    Iqbal S. Sarai

    March 11, 2012
    • Hi Iqbal,

      Wow, thank you so much for your comments and visits! I would be happy to help however I can.

      The Nikon D200 is still a very capable camera, but I can see why you might like to upgrade. The D7000 is a worthy choice for any event shooter because of its dual card slots, low light performance, compatibility for off camera flashes, and 16MP resolution. I would definitely go for the body-only model since you already have an 18-200 lens that you can use.

      If you have requests for work, and you’re unconfident about the gear that you have, remember that you don’t have to buy everything that you use. Even highly paid professional photographers choose to rent gear for each event rather than buy it. This of course depends on your location.

      If you would definitely like to buy the gear and you have $2500 to spend this year, there are some great choices for you, depending on your shooting style and tastes. One choice would be the D7000 body, a fast event zoom lens for DX like the Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 VC, and perhaps a speed light kit and umbrella to start.

      If you would like to have a chat with me about more gear recommendations and more importantly, usage, send me an email:

      I can offer time, instruction and recommendations for gear, shooting, business, website, marketing and more, on an hourly basis – Just contact me for more information and answers!

      Thank you very much for your visit, hope to hear from you soon.


      March 12, 2012
  59. it would be great to see more non-wedding and engage portrets, their arrangements are awesome!
