the brown comes 2007!!!

january 6th, 2007 . tampa, florida

for our first wedding of the year, we made a trip across the great u. s. of a. to florida. it was a beautiful day in tampa and believe it or not it wasn't that humid! it was so great to start the year with a couple as awesome as tyson and julia and their families. their wedding took place in a small church in dade city with the reception following at a working farm...very cool! it is always so flattering for us when a couple likes our work enough (out of all the other amazing photographers out there) to fly us across the country to capture their wedding day! thanks guys!
so tyson has a lot of snakes...a lot of over a dozen. it's very rare for me to see something i haven't seen at a guy's prep before but cleaning snake cages was a first! it's a good thing i had a snake as a pet when i was younger....jaclyn would have hid in the closet if she was there :)
go gators!
a quick prayer before the ceremony...
a quite moment in the limo...
tyson's grandfather escorted them to the reception in a horse drawn was quite fun hauling ass on foot trying to keep up with it!
we love weddings with slideshows!
and the grand exit...complete with real BIG sparklers, a stretched rolls and lots of friends and family to send tyson and julia off!

death valley

this past weekend we took a small trip to death valley for grace's first camping trip! she was a total trooper and we had a blast! last week we also added a new member to our family....a new land rover LR3 V8 SE. ever since we were married we have been a one car family but we finally ran into so many obstacles with just the audi that it was time to cave. so to fully initiate mr.rover into the fam we took a nice drive out to the rough trails of death valley for a little camping and off road adventure. to add to the fun death valley recorded it's lowest temperatures in over a decade! the nights got down to the very brisk mid twenties....add in some wind and we really went for the worst for our first family camping trip! surprisingly despite the weather we had a wonderful time! my best friend peter and his awesome wife elizabeth (who came bearing dozens of homemade cookies!) met us there and it was so great to see them both again. there were two downsides to the trip though....first off, fifteen minutes into our first trail my front tire blew and was ripped to shreds :( secondly...i still can't believe it....our beloved 14-2 chargers lost to the patriots in their first playoff game :( :( :(

we didn't take too many scenic shots because we were zooming around a lot but here's a few of our favorites....

if you've got a few minutes to spare, take a look at the DEATH VALLEY SLIDESHOW BY CLICKING HERE!
isn't grace just the cutest all bundled up! peter is a geologist so grace kept showing off showing him rocks :)
this was grace's face for the majority of the trip while we were driving on the "bumpity bumps"....that's off road for those of you that don't speak three year old.
bad news...
after an eight hour day of off roading grace was ready to call it a night :)
on our last day we took this awesome trail to a peak that was 6,700 feet above the valley floor...what a view! grace pretending to fly on the edge...
grace stole peter's camera for a few snaps of mom and dad...
then we took another trail up another 3,000 feet to find some small traces of snow. it's amazing that grace could play in a tiny little patch of snow for like a half hour!!!

angel + erik . the bride and groom session

we worked with angel of events of love and splendor (check out her awesome new website!) at the amazing vanrhein wedding earlier this year and after eating dinner with her found out that she wasn't exceedingly pleased with her wedding image is found to the rescue! little did angel and her husband erik know when they signed up to get dressed up again we would take them to a location 3 hours from their home in LA, that was a brisk 40 degrees, raining, muddy, and extremely windy! what an experience that was! we were pleasantly surprised that angel could put most models to shame...she was tough as nails out in the freezing weather totally strutting her stuff for us. thanks for playing along guys...hopefully you have regained feeling in all of your fingers :)

george + hannah

gettin hitched february 10th 2007.

ok, could george and hannah be any cuter?!!? these two are so fun together they were laughing the whole shoot! i decided to continue with my own personal challenge of "good shoots in weird places" that started with courtney and aaron's session at the arco. this location was even harder to pull anything out of than the last one. a big thanks to george and hannah for playing along with all my crazy ideas and for not asking for a full refund when we pulled up to see this....every girl's dream for where engagement photos would be taken...
after an hour and a half of fun and lots of me scratching my's what we ended up with...



the stripling family

while we were out in the lovely state of florida we had the chance to stay with our good friend susan stripling and her family. they were gracious enough to put us up in their daughter emma's princess room, drag us around tallahassee, feed us, put up with us, let us play their nintendo Wii, introduced us to fried pickles, the least we could do was shoot some awesome portraits for her! for those of you that don't know susan, she is an AMAZING photographer in her own right so it was quite intimidating shooting her :) she took us to this really cool swampy beach place for the, florida beaches are a LOT different than the plain ol boring ones we have here in so cal! it was a crazy eerie day with a super thick fog bank covering the's a good thing we brought our umbrellas!

first up...susan and her equally cool husband mitch!
oh my gosh...the stripling girls are so stinking cute it's insane!!! they were both so sweet to us :)
this might blow susan's chances of ever being sponsored by canon...but she just had to find out how a real professional camera feels ;)
