Missing in Action


I've been up in working in LA for the last week and as a result I haven't had an opportunity to write much on the blog. I have a lot going on this week including the upcoming wedding this weekend for Brittany and Greg Ethington. It's going to be a big bash for 400-500 guests at a big mansion which will be really cool. I'm very lucky to have the help of two great photographers, Michael and Don Atherton. We're doing some really cool stuff, including Don going up into the nearby mountains and getting shots looking down on the mansion from above. We'll make sure to post some pictures and let you all know how it works out. I'm sure it will be great....we're really excited about it. Attached is one of their Engagement photos I took. Wish them a happy wedding and a great life together!

Drayton Hall, South Carolina

I love old plantations. And if you love plantations, you need to visit South Carolina. There are several plantations there that will take your breath away. I visited Middleton Place, Boone Hall, and Drayton Hall among others. South Carolina also has some other cool places, such as Hilton Head and the Francis Biedler swamp. I'm hoping to shoot a wedding later this year in SC that would be a fantastic opportunity. Go visit, it's truly an opportunity to take you back to a bygone era.

Bridges

This is a picture taken at the Capilano Suspension Bridge in Vancouver Canada. If you haven't been there, you should go. The Capilano Bridge area is a park with a huge suspension bridge over a large canyon, kind of like you would see in an Indiana Jones movie. There is then a myriad of smaller bridges which link tree houses inside the park. It's truly a sight everyone should see. This was my first time to Vancouver, and if you've never been you should go. It's a fantastic city.

Photo from a recent wedding that I did in San Diego. This was a great wedding where they pulled out all the stops and had a great bash. This couple was a little bit older than some of the couples I shoot (in their 40's), but it was so neat to see them just as excited and loving as the younger couples that we're used to. Keep your love and romance ageless with the one you love.

Your Path

This is another one of my favorite shots, taken at the Oak Alley Plantation in Louisiana. I found it so striking that this path represents our lives sometimes. The beginning of the path is well lit, there are handrails/guides to show you the way and keep you on the path, and then it gets a little darker, with less guidance, and unsure as the path continues.
You can stay where it's safe, where the light and guidance are sure....but will you ever fulfill your dreams? Life can be safe, but safe is boring. Walk down the path, see what is beyond your sight by taking the steps where it's a little dark. You'll find that by stepping into the dark, you will find a whole new world that you never could see before. Get off the sidelines and start playing. Let today be the day you take your first step into the unknown, and start discovering what life is really all about.

Gotta Go?

I took this shot while in Korea. This poor girl was in desperate need of a restroom with none in sight. Having three sons of the same age, it definitely can get interesting at times when we're on the road and can't find a place to go. In life we sometimes get stuck with something we have to do, but don't necessarily want to do. Are we ready to respond, or will we be stuck?

What is this?

I really like this picture. Funny thing is getting guesses from people as to what this is and where it was taken. Any guesses? I still don't think it's that hard to guess, but many people have a problem with it. Take a look and let me know!
