This quirky wedding photograph featuring a collage of six portraits captured at Ambassador Mansions and Gardens in Pasadena showcase a common theme for many of my events. The first time I captured photos similar to this one was when I was taking self-portraits prior to a speaking engagement at a national photography convention. The convention organizer had asked me for a portrait for the program materials. Now this may be difficult for you to appreciate, but I typically hate photographs of myself. When I was younger, I was athletic, skinnier, and I still had a full head of hair. I therefore don't typically like what I see of myself in photographs. As I tried to create a serious photograph for myself, I realized that I didn't like the photographs nor did I feel the photographs spoke to my personality. And that's when I decided to do a See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil pose. Those three photographs became my Facebook cover photo and the Hear No Evil version became the photograph that I use for all speaking engagements and all of my online branding. Later, while I was photographing an engagement session, a couple asked me to take similar photographs of them and since then, I've often asked my clients to pose using the famous See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil pose. For clients that are sedate and serious (as is the case here), the photograph is somewhat ironic. For clients who walk a bit closer to the wild side, it's a fun way to show personal expression.
