Ari: My Life in Action || Apertura at Cypress College

A few weeks ago, I had the honor to second shoot for Ray Soemarsono at a wedding in San Diego. I had blast and learned a lot from shooting with Ray. However, Erwin Darmali wasn’t there, so I didn’t get a chance to meet him.  Today, I got to see both of them at Greg Bumatay’s class.   Yay!  If you don’t already know, this dynamic duo who call themselves Apertura are one of the top ten wedding photographers in the country by PopPhoto magazine.  That’s a pretty awesome title to have and these two totally deserve it.

In their presentation, Ray and Erwin gave us a few valuable pieces of advice and walked us through their process when photographing a wedding.  I walked out of there pretty inspired.

Thank you Greg Bumatay for hosting them and thank you Ray and Erwin for sharing your knowledge with us!

Erwin cheezin it up. 

Ray explaining  why he’s so awesome.

Greg told everyone to jump, so I jumped.  Fail! Ray and I were the only ones who moved, so we’re blurry. 😛

It’s ok, I made up for it.
