Memorial Day Weekend Wedding Extravaganza

This was my first 2-wedding weekend, with one ceremony on Saturday and another on Sunday. To say that it was a long week is an understatement. That said, I had a blast and made some good images I think!

A First In Wedding Photography - Lindsey & Bo

Ladies and gentlemen, I experienced a first at my last wedding: A bride and her bridesmaids jumping into a pool. Dresses included.

I mentioned the idea of jumping in as a joke...why WOULDN'T you? I mean, come on, it's a wedding in Mexico. Near sand and ocean waves. OF COURSE YOU HAVE TO JUMP IN THE WATER! Fortunately for me, and the rest of the guests, the ladies provided a bit of entertainment to end the evening.

A few pix from my recent trip to Playa del Carmen, Mexico. I was reminiscing today about how beautiful the weather was....

What Makes Me Happy - Part 3

I'm back in the groove after a short trip to Mexico. Oh the pains I go through for photography...so hard to even WANT to go to a beautiful place and photograph beautiful people....but I guess I'll suffer through it.

Here's a few things that make me happy on this glorious - but slightly chilly - Friday.

1. Shallow Depth of Field. Photographers will understand what I mean...

2. My beautiful daughter, who will hopefully be the next big thing in the world of famous beautiful babies. She's already numero uno in my eyes.

3. BRIGHT COLORS! This was a wall at my resort in Mexico...just screamed TAKE MY PICTURE!

I'm Leaving On A Jet Plane

Yup, tomorrow morning at 11:25 a.m. I'll be on a flight to Cancun, Mexico. From there I'll take a bus to Playa del Carmen for a beach wedding Saturday evening.

Lindsey & Bo tie the knot Saturday and then I fly home early Sunday. My shuttle picks me up at 5:30 a.m.!!!! I haven't been up at that hour in YEARS!

Friday is my down-time day so I'll probably stick to the resort to avoid kidnapping. I might actually get up at sunrise in hopes of photographing a beautiful panoramic shot of the beach and horizon...we shall see......

Hope everyone enjoys Kansas, Missouri and every other state in the Union while I'm gone.
