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.
My friend Kenny just exhibited his excellent series “Ballantine,” inspired by Franz Kline and the phenomenon of outdoor light on highway architecture. To me, the nature of the paintings seemed to shift as I moved in relation to them, going from hazy and smooth to abstract fragmentations with visceral texture. Kenny paints in a range of styles, writes and performs his own music, and plans to keep producing various art-makings, so stay tuned.
Menswear is often much more than just clothes to those participating in its fascinating ebb and flow. When my friend Thandazo asked me to do this shoot, I came away with more than just “fashion pictures,” receiving a primer on the menswear and style universe that I’m quite removed from. He shared his perspective on blog culture, style philosophy, and vulnerability, and if you want to hear it firsthand, check out his blog here.
