All I can really say is a very large piece of my puzzle was given to me today.
I am really not good at being inquisitive asking questions and such, I think my quality is making the leap to go and listening. Always at some point the golden nugget appears that i was not even thinking about.
the aha moment.

And then we went downstairs to the wine cellar...

I cannot put into words

Where my head is at right now. I am in my hotel room. I am trying to get my head right for tomorrow. (chocolate, coffee, water) yea the wines have been flowing. I am in a good place. I am beyond words Tuesday is a 12 hour learning day. I need to be focused.
I know where I want to go.
I am so glad i am here

if you really want to stalk me

I dunno why I never posted this before.
Actually its because I just found the time to start using it. I registered early to save my name, but like always just let it sit there. It wasnt until recently when one of my wedding friends added me as a friend, then the wave came on when all my other friends saw me I had to catch up.
So I am using this alot and will be posting about my adventures here also


next week

Hey everybody, I will be in ATL next week until wednesday, meeting a true wedding master.
Denis Reggie. I am beyond psyched. It wouldnt be possible without all of your support. I plan on bringing back some insane knowledge and skillz. Denis is really one of the top wedding photojournalists, maybe the top. I have been following his work for a long time. I will try to post some things during my trip. I have been so lazy lately hopefully a change of place will energize me.

From your end it will look like I am not gone, email and web stuff and phones all work there...
I just wont be able to meet you in person.

Things are changing here and really exciting things right around the corner.

See Ya!

Amy and Colin breakin the ice

I always forget that I can put the slideshows right in my blog here, I am kinda lazy and its a whopping three extra steps...
Amy and Colin, I love that we walked right in and just started. And you trusted me to pick a decent spot. I never shot there,and its really 5 mins from my house, but scoped it out the day before. Its has a lot of really nice nooks to get some really great looks dont ya think?

Looking forward to your super special day in October!

Hill country BBQ

Just got back form the Launch party of Hill Country BBQ in the city. They are now doing all kinds of catering for parties and events, on and off location.
A great idea for the more casual wedding and really fun events
Check It

the PB&J cupcakes are beyond fantastic. Out of control good.
Of course we got to try every single rib/meat/salad.
Everything top notch.

Thanks to the wedding salon
and 4pm events for putting it together and inviting me!

See Ya

Cheryl and David anytime

My Inlaws Pets

Who knew that when I married into this family, my wifes parents would become a pet rescue haven. I certainly didnt. They had owned many animals before but never were really into the whole indoor pet full time thing, and now the pets they have are really not pets but more like little children. Completely spoiled (but well behaved) Treated like royalty.

Meet Kiki: The previous owner abused poor kiki. The usual physical type stuff, throwing, flyswatters, etc. Nowadays Kiki is the princess of the hill. Number one to her mommy, Kiki is the most spoiled. But the most loving. She loves kisses.

Chances are if you spend ten minutes with Kiki this is what you will be seeing.

Meet Skippy: The most rescued of the three. A junkyard dog(literally) A little blind, a little deaf, was almost poisoned to death from antifreeze at the yard. On his last leg but of course now living a mega cush life. He gets lotsa love. I must say since I have known Skip, this last time I saw him he was actually jumping around and playing for the first time. He was nipping me and doing the doggy lunges at me. Totally psyched to see that. Lucky dog.

Meet Thomas: What? a cat!? The last people I would have seen with a cat, and an indoor cat? C'mon. It seems like down south once you are not a puppy or a kitten its see ya later pally. Almost starved to death and flea riddled when the rents decided enough of him hanging around the yard and took him inside for good. It appears like Tom is really a rare breed of Tabby cat with all the right colors and no flaws, well maybe one black whisker.

Nowadays if you spend any time around Tom this is what he enjoys doing most. Saved from the trials and tribulations of hunting for food he no longer has any worries at all. Probably the most well mannered cat I have ever met. He lets you do whatever to him. A hint of tail flick and then back to sleep.

Ok I guess those are my cousins? Or something
Had a great relaxing weekend. Some fireworks shots later on this week.

Happy 4th of July

Hey everyone, I am making the annual trek upstate to the Catskills. Cindy's parents have a house up there and we always spend the 4th of July weekend there. Well when we are not working anyways. We have not missed too many in the 14 or so years we have together.

Anyway Internet is non existent and Cell service is in one spot on top of the neighbors hill.
I will be trekking up there twice a day to check my phone messages, so if you need something. anything call me instead of email.
If the weather holds out any hope I will be making a trip or two to the Gunks for some sweaty hot climbing.


Have a great weekend. I will be back monday!
