Miscellaneous monday #52

09.29.2008

_____ How 'bout them Cowboys! Way to choke while playing the lowly Redskins. Was Jessica Simpson in the stands? That game ruined what was an otherwise perfect Sunday. Such a great time relaxing and resting up for the busy week ahead, playing with Caden, then ack... choke! They almost got that onside kick too. Bummer. _____ There was so much...

El Segundo Engagement Session

09.25.2008

Yesterday afternoon I shot a super fun engagement session in El Segundo for a super fun couple. These crazy kids are getting hitched next year in a little Island off the coast of Washington and I can't wait to go (we are going to arrive by float plane!). We started off by shooting in one favorite places on the planet... the fancy beer aisle at...

Wedding in Chetopah, KS

09.23.2008

This past Saturday, I shot an extra special wedding. Of course all of my weddings are special to me and I am grateful to all of my clients who put their trust and faith in me. I do love my job and I am truly blessed to be shooting some incredible, lavish weddings for some of the coolest people on the planet. But this wedding was different. Small...

miscellaneous monday #51

09.22.2008

_____ I am a bad blogger. This is the longest I've gone without an update since I started blogging back in 2005. I am so sorry. I know there are many of you who hang on my every word and you've probably been crying yourself to sleep every night wondering what I've been up to. Let's just say I've been very busy and I also visited a couple of...

September 13th Wedding in LA

09.16.2008

I've always said that my goal is to "show up at every wedding as if I were an old friend with a fancy camera'. I try to blend in, keep everyone comfortable, and go about doing my job. Well this last weekend, it was very easy to do just that, since one of my very best friends in the world, tied the knot to a very special young lady. Some of you...

miscellaneous monday #50

09.15.2008

_____ Once again, how 'bout them Cowboys! What an entertaining football contest. Seriously, that was a great game. Of course I am pleased with the outcome, but dang... intense game! Just as an FYI... everytime the Cowboys win this year, I am sure I'll be posting about it on Misc Monday. But if they do happen to actually lose a game, I'm sure...

I've built my business around providing my clients with outstanding service as well as great images and as a result we get lots and lots of word of mouth referrals. I really love this particular group of people. In...

9-11 Seven years later

09.11.2008

Seven years!?!?!? It's already been 7 years since 9-11-01???? Where has the time gone? I thought today would be a good time to share this poem from Mother Teresa that a friend just sent to me. It's called "Do it Anyway": People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered; Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse...

Picante

09.09.2008

This post is for my local friends, residences of South Orange County. I just got back from an amazing meal at a place called Picante in Ladera Ranch. It's been open for a couple of years now, and I've driven by it several times, but I've never gone in. Until this evening. I wanted to try a new place and I thought of it after I saw it come up on...
