Over the weekend I took my father in-law to check out the incredible FlashBus tour that David Hobby and Joe McNally are currently doing right now. They have a 29 city stop and are traveling something like 13,000 thousand miles across the country on a tour bus. Wow, that’s got to be a stinky bus by now. ha! The workshop was great and I got to see two people who I really respect and appreciate for all that they have done in the world of photography. For all of the workshops out there, these two guys are genuine, honest, and really tell you how it is. No fluff, just the good stuff, and that’s how I like it! Keep up the good work guys! Here’s some quick pics of the tour in Atlanta, GA. ;-)

So I didn’t even realize the background of this pic until I started editing some images. I think McNally does this in any picture with David Hobby in it…… ha!

Here’s some quick pics of Joe McNally working his TTL magic up on stage. The first image was a guy from the audience and the last two images was Joe trying to trigger all of the Nikon flashes in the audience. He was having a bit of trouble trying to get his master flash to trigger all of us out in the dark auditorium, but he managed to fire off a ton of them. Cool!

There was a special guest in attendance for the Flash Bus Tour, Mr. Weddings himself, David Ziser. I follow all of the tips and tricks from his blog all of the time. He’s great!

So while in “Hotlanta”, we got to meet up with my sister in-law Lindsay at Ted’s Montana Grill which is right outside of the CNN Center. Good bison burgers for sure!

Oh yeah, there was this little thing called Wrestlemania going on next door to where we where. There were so many people around wearing their championship belts and gear from the WWE. If we would have had more time and not gotten stuck in the Atlanta airport trying to get home, we probably would have tried to see it. This thing was huge!

What a fun time I had last week shooting an engagement session for Katie and Mark! We first met up at Southend Brewery so that we could get some drinks and appetizers. Then we headed around the block for a few different locations. Katie also brought a few outfit changes for both herself and Mark, so we just had to have them sporting their new duds for the shoot! (loved the hat by the way) Since I could tell that Mark wasn’t so sure about this whole “engagement” session thing going on, I informed him that he was going to have a very easy time. Let’s see, all he had to do all day long was hug and kiss his beautiful fiance. By the second shot, Mark was ready to do this all day! They have my friend, Stacey, at Red Letter Events planning their wedding this coming October at the Thomas Bennett House. Stacey always knows how to throw a great party! Now if Mark is tearin’ it up on the dance floor to much and pulls something, no problem! Katie is a physical therapist and she can just put him back into good shape. Since Mark is a pharmacist, I’m sure he’ll have some good pain meds to take care of any problems….. :-)

Be sure to click on their engagement slideshow below. There is also a link to all of the images at the end of the show.

I had the pleasure of photographing a very intimate wedding ceremony the other week out at the beautiful Kiawah Ocean Course Clubhouse. Bentley and Bill couldn’t have picked a better place to say their vows right on the oceanfront! We had great weather and just an unbelievable sunset over the marshlands and beach. Most of the time you’ll get some low cloud cover that won’t always allow you to photograph the big, orange ball glowing in the sky, but as luck would have it, we got just that! I’m really honored to be asked to capture such special moments for a couples during one of the most important days of their lives. It also doesn’t hurt to have such a beautiful, fun loving bride and handsome groom to work with! ;-) Congratulations to the both of you!

Be sure to click on their wedding slideshow below! There is also a link at the end of the video for more images online. Stay Tuned for a custom designed,  wedding album rough draft next week!

Bentley / Oh My goodness! They are wonderful and what a beautiful sunset! You captured everyone and everything so perfectly – thank you for helping make it the wedding of my dreams and a perfect weekend. You were fantastic to work with us and be so accommodating and easy! Can't wait to see what you put together.   04.02.2011- 03:48pm
