Sorry I have not posted in a couple of weeks. (many new images and posts coming soon). I just completed a 12 day whirlwind adventure. It all started on Wednesday March 3rd driving to Las Vegas where I spend two days with the awesome Australian photographer Marcus Bell as part of the WPPI (Wedding & Portraits International) convention. It was a very inspiring experience. Friday evening March 5th it was back in the car with my wife and Canadian wedding photographer friend, Amy Britton, for the drive back to Los Angeles. We pulled in around 10 PM. On Saturday March 6th Amy and I photographed Heather and Casey’s wedding here in Santa Clarita. Sunday morning was spent downloading and doing some preliminary post production work. (Wedding images and post due later today or tomorrow). Late Sunday we flew back to Las Vegas just in time to attend the WPPI welcome reception. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday (March 8 – 10) were spent at the convention speaking in the Buckeye Color Lab booth where my work was displayed and attending a live broadcast of Fridayphotoschool with Will Crockett and Sarah Petty. I am so honored to be part of the Fridayphotoschool organization. I spent most of Wednesday evening doing what “stays in Vegas” with a bunch of fellow photographer friends. Finally got to bed around 2 AM just in time to hear the alarm go off at 6 AM Thursday morning. Jumped on a 8 AM flight to Los Angeles. Got home just in time to unpack and repack and drive up north to Napa Valley with my wife and Amy. After a great Indian dinner we crashed around 10 PM. It rained on Friday – so we spent most of the day driving around Napa and Sonoma wine tasting and scouting for our two weekend Shoots. On Saturday Amy and I photographed an engagement session for Gabrielle and Drew, including a large group bike ride (images coming soon). On Sunday March 14, Amy and I photographed Gabrielle and Drew’s fun wedding at the Fairmont Inn and Spa in Sonoma (images coming soon). On Monday we headed down to San Francisco just in time for a great lunch in Chinatown. We then met up with Serena and Conrad to photograph their engagement session at The Palace of Fine Arts, Crissy Field and Baker Beach. We then all joined Serena and Conrad for a great dinner on the beach – thanks Conrad! (Images coming soon). My wife and I then said goodbye to Amy – she was planning to spend a couple of days in SF. We left San Francisco at 8:30 PM and rolled into L.A, at 2:00 AM . We unpacked and went to bed at 2:30 AM, only to be awakened by one of L.A’s famous 4.4 earthquakes at 4:04 AM.
I am just getting back into the swing of things. I love what I do – thats what makes adventures like this easy.
