The Art of Giving Youth Conference

While Amber and her crew were shooting a wedding at Wine and Roses, I flew to the east coast and covered video and photography for a North Carolina Youth Conference entitled, the Art of Giving. There were about three hundred student philanthropists present and the atmosphere was just amazing. All the students were so eager to learn and everyone were so excited to be there. This has been one of the smoothest run conferences I've ever been a part of thanks to Eric Rowles, CEO of based in North Carolina. I would have to say, the highlight and the closer of the event was the amazing performance art of fellow artist and Sacramento native, David Garibaldi. This guy blew me away. In 30 minutes, he painted larger than life portraits of Kanye West (pictured below), Alicia Keys, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and Albert Einstein. Enjoy the non-wedding related pics!

Congratulations Minette and Jason!

Alan here, our crew had an awesome time spending the day with Minette and Jason. The ceremony was at the Cathedral on J Street and the reception was held at the Sheraton Grand about a block up the street. How convenient! Even though Minette barely had any sleep doing some last minute details, she had a blast dancing at the reception. All in all, it was a fun time for everyone.

Tin-Wai and Melvin - Woohoo!

Alan here, it was another gorgeous day at Arden Hills! Despite all the behind the scenes mishaps, (getting kicked out of no photography zones and the deejay being told to set up at the wrong location) the couple were very calm and nothing dampened their spirits. Tin and Melvin truly deserve each other and I'm honored that they chose Artistic Imagery to capture their special day. Kudos to my crew, Scott & Kei for another awesome job and for Karen and Christine Noele for the gorgeous makeup on Tin! Here are the pics...
