What a Halloween Party for Omar and Gabriela - Los Angeles Event/Party Photographer

On an eerie night, after the sun had set, I walked into Omar and Gabriela's Halloween party.  I have to say that I had a great time.  But getting there was not easy.  With anything good in life, you have to fight through obstacles to harvest the rewards.  For me, it was overcoming the fear.  Surprised?  I guess not around Halloween.  Follow me along, and I'll show you the way:

We've got geisha from, well, Japan:

Oh, did I mention I ran into two witches, including a pretty one:

The hosts truly know how to have fun at parties.  So there's a bar-tender, a DJ and, of course, a costume contest.  The three winners are....a beauty and the beasts:

Alright, by now, you can see that I've had lots of fun at the party and with the photos.  I have to say, thank you for having me there, Omar and Gabriela!  It was an impressive party!  And look forward to your Christmas party, hehe!!
