Last week I took some photos at the launch party for the new aïta clothing store in Medellin in the Centro Comercial Oviedo (Oviedo Mall). Aita is from Spain and this was their first location opened up inside Colombia. These photos were taken for Jack Magazine. Here is a look at a few of the photos.

Two weeks ago I woke up early in order to take advantage of some beautiful weather and a great hike through a trail just outside of the city. I went with my friend Ruy Lopes and his father Rui Lopes who is a professional photographer from Canada. I had a great time spending the morning with them and seeing a new part of Medellin. The only down side was a bunch of nasty bug bites but I survived and it was well worth it. Here is a look at some of the photos I snapped that morning.
Last weekend I took a little side trip out to Santa Fe de Antioquia with the 4 Musketeers (the name that we have given to our little clan which includes myself, my girlfriend and another couple. We have become great friends seeing how we all met together in the same dance academy).
This town is about an hour Northwest of Medellin, Colombia which still has the old colonial feel with the cobblestone roads. Here are a few photos from our weekend get-a-way.
Last May the newest and most popular salsa academy of Medellin, Colombia, Academia Baila Latino, celebrated their 1 Year Anniversary with a huge event located on the top floor of the Dann Carlton Hotel which is considered the best hotel in the city. With a view of city and the energy of dancing all around there was fun to be had. Here is a look at some of the photos we captured throughout the night including the surprise engagement at the end of the night!
I must give a great deal of the photo credit to my friend and photographer Joseph Le. He was kind enough to help me out with the photos so that I could dance a bit as well! Special thanks to Joel Duncan Photography as well for capturing some great photos of the night which can be found here.

On June 11, 2011 I had the pleasure to attend my cousin’s wedding in North Carolina. The wedding took place along side Lake Logan nestled inside the mountains of North Carolina. This is one of the most peaceful, romantic, and nostalgic locations I have ever been to for a wedding. The wedding was filled with love from the time we arrived until the moment we left the secluded lake. The greatest part about this lake was that cell phone service did not reach it. With this, everyone was able to focus on the event at hand. The wedding ceremony was followed by a fantastic reception with the first dance being one for the books (or cameras!). Instead of a typical first dance, they showed their personalities with the most exciting and goofy wedding dance in history! Here are some of the photo I captured while attending the wedding. I wish the best to Gaby and Sarah on their new journey in life together!
