Dyer Family Luau





















































So, the first handful of images were shot around town. We went and photographed some of the first places the parents lived in and a little joint they frequented when they were dated.

Then it was on to the house for the luau. And yep, I was the only brown person there (except the dancers) :).

You can view the whole event and order prints HERE.

Looking to have me come document your family event? Drop me a line.

Jonathan - not sure why you make mention of being the only "brown person" there...

I have never thought of you as a "brown person"...just JC, the very good photographer.

I know you say that in jest, but it seems like distinctions of skin color keep coming up, and up, and up all the time in our culture...

Only a true family man could capture meaningful looking moments like these . . . lovely Jonathan.

Are you a unicorn? Because you are made of magic. I love all these beautiful, natural moments you've caught and the one of the baby being held in a hand? Magical unicorns.
