This post is criminally tardy: my friends got married last year. We also were short on shooting time, besides in the restaurant where the reception was held, which proved to be a very tricky lighting situation. Despite all this, they still came through looking exceptionally good, because exceptionally good people tend to do that. They inspire, support, lead, create with, and genuinely listen to those around them. I’ve known Josh and Rachel since my first week on California soil, I love them both, and I’m excited to know they will be growing together. Congratulations!
Nick and I were flown out to Colorado to shoot our former yearbook accomplice Hannah’s wedding. Sorry this post is so long, but I spent nearly every weekend of the last few months editing these and need to get some exposure closure. But enjoy the longform blog post- truly a dying art, maybe.
Congratulations Hannah and Lars!
For this engagement shoot, Josh and Rachel wanted to create some look alike movie posters to announce their wedding and hopefully make ya do a double take. It was fun shooting with these two playing roles in some of their favorite films and television shows, and we even were able to trick google image search.
As promised, here is the full set. These are at a smaller size since we don’t need the whole world knowing all the wedding info, but for those of you who know them, they can be viewed in person at their new place at full movie poster size.
A collaboration between Jordan Nakamura, Joshua Watson and Rachel Watson.

This week, my friend Erika became a first generation college grad in her family and has overcome more challenges than is practical to try summarizing here. Through it all, people knew Erika by a radiant smile and contagious laugh. She is a brilliant leader and yet carries her many abilities with humility. As she moves ahead, it is evident that a part of her mission is to bring others along with her on the journey. She’s one of my role models and I’m privileged to call her a friend.
