Angelina + Mario = Happily Married in Gangsta's Paradise

On Saturday I met my awesome friend Angelina and her husband Mario to take some anniversary pictures for them. Their anniversary is today (happy anniversary, you guys!), and it's really hard for me to believe that it's been over a year since all of us '07 knotties got married.

Mario is hysterical. He really hammed it up for the camera. He also danced, which earned him massive bonus points. Because of him, I now know that the Bloods and the Crips have their own awesome dance moves. Click here and here to check out some examples of those.

It was awesome seeing Angelina, as always. She's become a good friend of mine, and I am always inspired by her healthy lifestyle and her tolerance and patience for others. Me, I just talk shit. But Angelina, she quotes Gandhi. And then takes us out to dinner after our session. We had Thai food. It was yummy.

Anyway, enough chit chat. Here are some of the pics!




Since Angelina and Mario got married on September 22, I just had to do this.








This one (below) is an experiment in editing. I'm not sure how I feel about it, to be honest.



This is what happened when I told Mario to be a ninja.



Thanks for the awesome time, you guys! You were great (and wonderfully photogenic) guinea pigs.

You get better with every session! I really like your editing on #9. Makes it feel ghostly, if that makes any sense. Fits with Angelina and Mario I think. And Angelina and Mario looked great!
