    Most commonly asked question, "How do you pronounce your name?" Think Maui, without the M. Or, "It's Auey, like I have an owee." (boo boo, ouchie, auey ~ I'll be reduced to a scab soon).

Earl and Edward | Beloved Engagement Shoot Oakland CA

I met Edward at a wedding I did this year (shoutouts to Rome and Rochelle). He made quite an impression on me during the wedding party portraits, as he declared to me, “I”m the token gay wedding party member, make me look good!” I’ll have to admit – he was the most fabulous one there (sorry, ladies).

Anyway, he and his fiancé Earl contacted me to do their holiday photos this year and I just loved working with them. Combined, they are the funnest, funniest and most adorable couple around. My cheeks literally ached from laughing too much.  Seriously, I can never be thankful enough for getting the chance to meet new people and being part of their lives for even a little while. In this case, 2 hours in the Oakland Hills.

 Love you E + E! You will have fabulous, amazing adventures together – I just know it! Here’s the slideshow from the shoot we did. Enjoy!

Edward Mardicas - Awe! =) Your words, almost more than your pictures, just made me smile from ear to ear! =) It was such a great experience working with you Auey and I think you did an awesome job at capturing us at our “realest”, is that a word? It should be if it aint! =) We can’t wait to work with you again! Love, love, love the pictures! =)


I loved Marceline the moment I lay eyes on her. Such a cool chick, so I decided to be her for Halloween. I’m pretty sure I would’ve pulled this off if I was 20 pounds lighter, 5 inches taller and 5 shades of bluer – but hey, all in the spirit of fun!

Happy Halloween, everybody!
