Our 5 Year Wedding Anniversary

Wow guys. 5 years ago today yours truly got married to a girl named Lusine.  WOW 5 years. I cannot believe how time goes by. I remember the day so clearly. That is until I had a little to much to drink,, hehe Thankfully it was at the end of the wedding party. :) But it seems like it was yesterday I was planning the wedding and now, 5 years later, raising so far our only child Ani and just living life.

For the next five years, Lusine and I are going to make an effort to travel more and see different parts of the world. Photographing each step as we go along.  I haven’t done much traveling these past 5 years because of work and the baby.

Here are a few images of my special day. Ohh and let me add this. As years go by , wedding photography becomes that much more precious. Looking back at how things were, Im so glad I had my day documented and captured the right way. Thank you Maestro Dickran Mansurian – Mansurian Photograhy.  You rock!!  So all you future couples out there, invest in what truly is the most important part of your wedding. The memories. Here are a few for you guys.

URUGUAY GO URUGUAY GO – World Cup 2010

URUGUAY URUGUAY URUGUAY URUGUAY GO URUGUAY.

THIS GUY IS THE MAN

Diego Forlan,, They are in the Semi’s baby. GO uruguay.

For those of you who didn’t know. My mother’s side of the family is from Uruguay  of Armenian decent. She was born in Uruguay and I have many relatives still living in Montevideo Uruguay.  So them progressing like this is a big deal for me personally. This means more to me then just rooting for a team to do well. I guess you can say its a family thing. GO URUGUAY GO!!!!!

I wish I was in the sidelines right now with a 600MM just snappin away. One day hopefully.

95th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide

Today is the 95th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide. The deliberate and systematic destruction (genocide) of the Armenian population of the Ottoman Empire during and just after World War I.[1] It was implemented through wholesale massacres and deportations, with the deportations consisting of forced marches under conditions designed to lead to the death of the deportees. The total number of Armenians that were killed is 1,500,000. Turkey till this day is in complete denial of the genocide. This is total bs.

An image showing the ottoman turks forcing the armenians in deportation and death marches.

Every year on this day the Armenian people gather in different locations to remember the armenians that were massacred and to spread recognition of what happened. One location is the Armenian Genocide Monument in Montebello where about 5,000 people gather. That is just one of the locations of many all over the world.

I might be heading over there in a little bit, if I do, then I will post some images right here soon.

Got the iPad!!!!

Well guys. I thought I’d write a non professional review on the apple iPad from a consumer point of view. I’m not much for writing reviews but what the heck.

I finally got one of these puppies. My first impression. Amazing. Just amazing. I new I was going to like it when I got it. It is not for everybody. but for those who use the many features and apps on the iphone,, then this is a great addition on a way bigger scale. I am a big apple fan. They just make products that work. One thing though, I own a macbook pro and a macbook already and I seldom use them for internet anymore.  This will by no means replace your computer, because its meant for a different purpose but maybe it will change the way you read email and surf the web. The battery life is really good compared to the iPhone. 

 

 

I was impressed on how the keyboard comes up and how easy it is to use. I myself have big hands and I found no problem typing. One thing about typing, you might have to get used to it a bit. It all depends how you use it. Its a bit tricky on your lap. You might find it hard to get into a comfortable position using both hands to type because of the nature of the product. It doesn’t bend or sway like a laptop does. 

 

Internet is so much fun on this thing. Its smooth. The screen is crisp. and the functionality really brings new meaning to surfing the web. I love it. And yes, the video works on that espn page you see up there when I click the play button.  Playoffs baby!!!! Go Lakers!!

 

The apps. Ohh the apps.. Great.  There are apps specially designed for the ipad. and all the old iphone apps work on here aswell. The screen minimized on the iphone apps but you can zoom in. I happened to download this air hockey game. Very fun. I got checkers on here aswell. Im guessing you put the ipad on a table and play with a friend. The things they come up with. Never a dull moment anymore. :)

 

YouTube works great. The browsing menu for videos is something I’ve never seen. So easy and fluid. Here’s a video of the Armenian Space Station I was watching on my IPad. 

 

I thought I would show you the size compared to the iPhone. 

Anyway, these are my first impressions after owning my 32gb iPad for only a few hours. I bought the WiFi only version because i thought well, It would be faster and the fact that the 3G is not out yet,, Who knows,, maybe if I feel like I would need the 3G  wifi version, I will just upgrade.

MY NEW & IMPROVED BLOG!!! FIRST POST- BOOKMARK VAHAGN.com

Hi guys.  It has been a long time since I have blogged anything because of the fact I’ve been busy with other projects and family stuff with the baby. But now I am back with a new look to my blog as well as a cool new url. My new blog is simply VAHAGN.COM   -How perfect can it be. That happens to be my first name. Cool Deal.  It was a long waiting process to actually register this name because it was taken by a guy with my same name in Armenia but I finally was patient and I got it. The old blog was www.blog.styleimaging.com. You can access the old blog by clicking the link. 

With VAHAGN.COM   I will deliver very interesting posts about what I’ve been up to with my photography and my up to date most recent work.  ohh and  of course I made a pact to myself that I will post much more frequently. I am working on doing allot of video posts coming soon.

Ohh by the way. I added my facebook contact up on top  :)

Ok well I will leave you now with a few images of my baby girl taken with an older point and shoot camera. A 4 year old Panasonic Lumix.  The first picture was actually taken with my macbook pro web cam. I just cannot get enough of her.
