So it’s a rather small photo on the corner of the table of contents of this June’s Vanity Fair issue with Brad Pitt on the cover … but it’s still pretty cool to see my photo of blogger Megan Solla being published on this amazing magazine!! Thank you, Kate / VF!
In that really short amount of time I had in between family events, I was able to drive down to Claremont from Diamond Bar to meet up with blogger Stephanie Huang of Highstitched Voice! We grabbed frozen yogurt from Yogurtland and then did a quick shoot! And then I convinced her to piece up something in 10minutes for an impromptu second look! This is what we came up with!
The Claremont Colleges offer quite a selection of locations to shoot!
Jessica of HapaTime, featuring Trendy Blendy. Just another Throwback Tuesday post!
I’m long overdue, but had a great time at the Madewell x LookMazing event last Wednesday in downtown San Francisco! So many cool kids (aka bloggers), so little time! I was reunited with my faves @pancakestacker and @kathleenmurillo, and then hung out with the beautiful hosts Britt and Whit! Unfortunately I couldn’t stay long since I had to meet my cousin and his wife for dinner. Nevertheless, it was a great event, wish I could’ve stayed longer!
The last two days of Coachella were quite memorable, not so much as the bands and the festivities but the people I’ve met and hung out with. There’s fashion blogger sisters Dani and Aimee, who are just fun-packed (and never a dull moment!). And then Wes and Garland, two of the most talented people I know. Wes is a photographer, Garland is a designer. Then after wandering the Coachella lands for reception, I finally found Chanda, aka Pancakestacker, with her partner-in-crime Kathleen Carla out at the Rose Garden VIP section, enjoying their little picnic. The next day I was joined by a good blogger friend of mine, Aminta, all the way from New York City. We each enjoyed a good flatbread dish before heading out to see the bands. I then spent the rest of the day with Garland and Michelle. Not to mention, running into Jamie Chung and The Man Repeller! We watched the Wu Tang Clan (first time ever they have reunited!) to end my first ever Coachella experience. (Oh, and experienced my first sandstorm too. Funny, I also experienced my first snowstorm in last Feb’s NYFW). Nevertheless, I don’t miss Coachella at all. But I do miss the company.
I also couldn’t believe meeting another Victoria’s Secret angel the very next day. This time it is with supermodel Chanel Iman. She is just stunning in real life as she is on print and TV. Joining her in these photographs are fashion bloggers Aimee Song of Song of Style and Dani Song.
Here are some of the streetstyle shots I took at Blogger Bazaar held last Saturday in LA. It was so much fun spotting some of my favorite bloggers like Chriselle Lim, Wendy Nguyen, SincerelyJules, Aimee Song, Dani Song, Liz of Late Afternoon, as well as meeting new blogger friends like Una, Anne, Aida, Roxy Limon, just to name a few. I really would’ve preferred to shoot them outside in natural light, but it wasn’t that easy getting them out of the building.
I really can’t wait to see the launch of Trendy Blendy, which is a new fashion startup coming soon! I’m just in love with this shot I took in particular, with model Gaby Pena and blogger superstar Jessica R of Hapatime. We took this shot in the heart of San Mateo, not far from the CalTrain Station. Not that magical, but at least the dresses are.
What’s the best way to spend part of your 12 hour visit in LA? Blogger Bazaar! (Reason why I’m down in LA in the first place). I was able to meet some of my favorite LA bloggers all in one room (and even check out items from their closets).
I was super excited to be reunited with Chriselle, after last seeing her at New York Fashion Week in Feb. Feels like such a long time ago!
Happy to see Miss Aimee Song again! It was fun watching her get bombarded by her fans nonstop!
Finally met Aimee’s sister Dani Song! She is such a cool chick!
Pleasure meeting Roxy Limon as well!
First name: Cutest. Last name: Ever! Wendy from WendysLookBook.com!
(Wendy: “Ryan, you’re the first photographer I’ve done the peace signs with.” LOL)
Shey of Cutieshey!
Okay so this is just part one of my Blogger Bazaar post. Because I did take tons of shots from that day! Stay tuned!
