There’s nothing better than to photograph a long time friend and his family.  It’s such an honor.  I’ve known Jeremy Lucero for probably 20 years.  I remember the days when he and I would stay up all night talking about girls or God and then leave early in the morning to go snowboarding in Big Bear.  He’s the kind of guy you can do that with and not even get tired.  We have a lot in common but mainly our faith and our careers in photography.  Jeremy got me my first job as a professional photographer back 1995 working for Yary Photography (sports photography). He told them to hire me even though I had absolutely no experience.  I remember calling him up before my first job and asking him what to set my newly issued Mamiya RZ67 at if it was cloudy or if I had to shoot inside a dark gymnasium.  He gave me a long list of exposure & flash settings for every possible scenario and I made a chart.

Today, Jeremy is a successful wedding photographer with a cool studio in Downtown Fullerton.  (Check out his website)  We do Bible studies together and lunch when we can.  I love his spirit and I love his family.  They are beautiful people.

    Mike,

    This work is incredible! Some of the best shots I’ve ever seen. It’s amazing how God has gifted you not only with his “eye” for beauty but also His heart. I remember Jeremy from way back and am so happy that your friendship has spanned the years. What a gift to have a like-minded associate.

    Merry Christmas, Mike and Julie…and your tribe! We love you!
