A Wonderful Way To Kick off The Holiday Season

This past Saturday, I had the honor of being the "best man" at my younger brother's wedding in Bridgewater, MA... I had never been to a "white wedding" but this was just plain awesome.. We left about noon on Friday for the rehearsal and returned home late Sunday afternoon, it snowed the ENTIRE time, it was just plain gorgeous, the entire thing.

They obviously had hired a "real wedding photographer", but of course I had to bring my camera. I've never shot a wedding before, mainly because I'm away from home way too much as it is, and I was afraid that I'd enjoy it too much.. I was right, it was extremely fun.. I might have to add this to my repertoie to combat the uncertainty of this economic downturn.

Congrats to Jeff and Danielle:

Eckerd College Holiday Card 2008


Each year, for the last three anyway, I've always enjoyed the Holiday Card put out by Casey Paquet and his team at Eckerd College in St. Petersburg.

I did a little googling the other day but nothing came up, and naturally because of my adult ADD, I kind of just forgot about it. About an hour ago I got an email from Casey letting me know the Card was out. Thanks so much Casey..

Once again Eckerd didn't disappoint, they seem to set the bar every year. Be sure to check out the Bloopers at the end (you have to watch the whole card for the blooper links to show)

Great stuff, looks like a pretty cool place to work.

Thanks for the reminder Casey!!!

Annual Family Holiday Cards

When I first starting this photography thing for a living, my wife had this crazy idea of taking pictures of the kids for Christmas cards. OK, sounds fun right, yeah it is until your significant other calls you from her parents'house in Texas on Saturday afternoon, making sure I had the picture printed and ready to mail for Monday!!!!

What picture? Hadn't even crossed my mind.

We were scheduled to pick her up at JFK Staurday evening, so we fired to Manhattan hoping to find something that inspired the three of us. No luck in the creative department. Well a long story short, we got to Manhattan at about five, it was dark and of course I didn't bring a flash.

So, we managed to get it done, but definitely not one of my favorites.

Here it is along with the last four years, man they grow up fast!!

I'm gonna take the next couple of weeks to enjoy a LOT of REAL time with family and friends as far away from the computer as I possibly can, and recharge for a VERY EXCITING START TO 2009
