ashley + troy // wed

It’s hard to write so little because there is so, so much to say.  Much of it really isn’t mine to say either, so I’ll leave it with this: Ashley + Troy are one incredible couple.  By saying that they have really been through a lot together would be a serious understatement.  The amount of personal sacrifice and hardship that people go through in life hopefully equates to greater appreciation for life’s joys and blessings…and Ashley + Troy are the epitome of happiness, joy, kindness, love and respect…all with great abundance.  It truly was a special honor for me to participate in such an amazing event for both of them.  I knew that they would be an incredible couple to photograph ever since Troy surprised Ashley with an engagement session, and it just so happened to snow that day.  Coincidence?  I think not.

I really had a blast working with Haili…and her personality is gushing in her portraits!  Thank you for an awesome shoot, some of my very favorites!

My weekend with a Canon 5D mk3

Where to begin.  In September of 2008 Canon announced a long awaited update to the  Canon 5D.  The most disappointing thing about the Canon 5D mk2 was that the AF had not changed.  When Nikon was putting pro level AF into their D700, people were a little upset about that and Nikon gained some market share because of it.  I enjoyed shooting with my Canon 5D2’s for a LONG time.  I received both of my 5D2 cameras in November 2008 (if you remember, my first body broke within a few hours of using it…some weird mirror thing that had to be returned).  But, the addition of 14-bit color, better high ISO noise control and a slew of other features made the 5D2 a worthy upgrade.  I’ve shot a few hundred thousand images and can easily say it was a beautiful  camera.  I never let the poor AF be an excuse for me to not get any shots, but, I always wished it was better.

Mason is #2 in the family that I have had the privilege to photograph!  I photographed his brother Mylen last year…man does time fly!  Mason is just a cool and chill dude, makes modeling look easy.  Oh, he has a pretty neat tattoo as well.  Thanks Mason!

My beautiful sister gets married tomorrow, and I’m so excited for her!  We shot these last week at the wonderful La Paloma resort.  Can you see the resemblance?  Love you Amie!
