Keya & Wade | Wedding

A few of my favorites from their Weatherford, TX wedding:




ring bearer...cute little guy:


Keya's entrance:







I guess, theoretically, I'd be able to continue breathing without my PocketWizards. But would that be a life worth living?:

Colin, Preston, and Nolan

These guys were too much fun! Every time I do a shoot involving kids I'm reminded of how great it was to be one:




see what I mean?:

The folks at iOLAP know how to party! Great group of people. I had a great time covering their Christmas party this year:

'tis the season

Two and a half hours at malls and whatnot...

...all I can come up with is a couple of pairs of socks:


I hate shopping.

Toss up

The dilemmas never end; decisions to be made; toys tools to be purchased.

Front runner - Nikkor 85mm f/1.4:

The sexiness of this lens is self-evident to my fellow Nikon shooters. Can't wait to get my hands on one. I'm in the grips of an all-out obsession with ultra-fast prime lenses (gimme). The creamy bokeh produced by this beast is unparalleled by anything in the Nikkor line. It's a head shot machine...

BUT...

Since I've gone full time with my business I've been spending more and more time at my not-so-comfy workstation. And my aching back, shoulders, and neck are painful reminders that I've got to do something about my posture/seating.

I'm considering the Herman Miller Aeron:

Seems these are hard to beat in the ergo/comfort department. My wallet's telling me 'don't be silly' but my back is screaming 'do not sit again until it's on one of these.' I guess my health and longevity are worth it, eh?

Not sure which way to go first. Anyone have any long term experience with the Aeron?

honorable mentions:
Canon Sd1100 -- I don't really have a knock-around P&S camera for fun pics.
PocketWizard PlusII -- I could stand to have a few more of these lying around.

Santa needs to roll through here early this year...and maybe more than once.

Site Updates

Updates to my website have been long overdue. Now that the wedding season is just about over, I've had a chance to give the site a little TLC. I've added a few featured galleries, a new kids gallery, and updated images.
