When my friend and former co-worker Kurtis called asking if I wanted to shoot his wedding, I said “of course!” Then I asked who the lucky lady was, with a pretty good idea of what the answer was. Sure enough, it was Heather, whom I also worked with a few years ago. In fact the two of them met at The Bee and have been together ever since. There wedding was held at Calaveras Big Trees Park State Park near Arnold.
I’ve know Lisa for probably 18 years, but only really got to know her more recently. She had worked in another department at The Bee ever since I started working there in 1999. But we never really met and only said “hello” when we passed in the hallway. Then, more recently, one of my other Bee buddies (and former wedding client), Tracy, recommended me to Lisa when she announced she was getting married to Rudy. I was super happy about this as I knew their wedding would be something special.
I met McKencie and Felix at the wedding of her friends Cyndi and JulioÂ a couple of years ago. I guess I did a pretty good job because they hired me to photograph their wedding and engagement session. đ™‚We started out at McKencie’s mother’s house where I captured shots of her and her friends getting ready for the big day. Then it was off to St. Anthony’s in Reedley for a traditional mass. Everybody was so nice there.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
