It was like an engagement shoot. Haha! Actually, Joesan and Karen have been married for over three years, and for the last couple of years during the holidays, they send out Christmas cards with a photo of them from some awesome vacation they took during the year. Last year, they went to Washington, DC but this year, with no vacation pics to use, they thought of the next best thing.
Joesan is an L.A. sports team fan, and he is a huge supporter of the Kings. Shooting at L.A. Live was a no-brainer. He, along with my friends Jay and Chris, keep me occupied during the workday with email strings of sports talk. We talk Lakers, Kings, Dodgers and occasionally talk smack about the Clippers and the Ducks, haha!
Joesan’s fandom is fully supported by his lovely wife, Karen who, in the process has taken to Kings legend, Luc Robitaille. Funnily enough, as we were shooting in front of Staples Center (there was a Kings game that night), she spotted Luc on the balcony. Unfortunately, I didn’t bring the zoom lens, but Karen seemed content enough to admire from afar.
After strolling around L.A. Live, we ended our evening with dinner at, of course, ESPN Zone. Thanks for dinner and coffee, Mr. & Mrs. Diche! =)
