It’s been a little while since we’ve posted a catch up post. We’ve kinda been all over since last Friday. Here’s how it went down…
Last Friday we took off to Palm Springs so that I could ride in the Tour de Palm Springs. It was a bit more challenging than I thought… that, or I’m in a little worse shape then I thought! Either way, we scored great weather, in between storms. It was about 40 degrees when I took off on what ended up being a 65 mile ride. I had planned on riding 100 miles, but was having some knee issues, and at mile 35, they had a bailout route to shorten the course up a bit. I took this route, and had a great time! The people that put on the ride, and all the people that volunteer did an amazing job. The rest stops were fully stocked with great food, and everyone seemed to be having a good time! While we were there, I did run into a couple people I talk to over on Twitter. Black Bottoms Cyclewear, and MotorTabs. I can’t say enough good things about both companies! Great products from both, and I dunno if I would have enjoyed my ride as much without the killer fleece vest, and the amazingly delicious MotorTabs drink!
We dodged the bad weather, once again, as we drove out to Fabulous Las Vegas on Sunday morning for the WPPI. Dana used her lead foot, and we got out there in a little over 3 hours! The WPPI is the Wedding and Portrait photographers convention that takes place every year, and lemme tell you… it is AMAZING how many people show up for it. All the big name shooters in our industry were out there along with people from all over the world to check out the tradeshow, and all the latest and greatest in the world of wedding photography. I had just as much fun pointing out the big name guys as Dana had playing roulette!
When we arrived on Sunday, we met up with our friends Kylee and Franjo, who are getting married later this year, and wanted to get some engagement pictures. They decided to go all out, Franjo rented a bad ass James Bond style tux, and Kylee had a killer Calvin Klein dress on. Lemme tell you… their pics look super HOT! We’re working on them now, and will probably have a blog up early next week. Stay tuned!
Even better, during the shoot, our friends Kerry and David from CameraDojo came out and videotaped the whole shoot for fun! I’m hoping they got some good stuff, as it’s always fun to see how we look when we work! I think they are heading back from Vegas today, so we’ll talk to them later on to see what they got. They run a great website, and podcast with TONS of information for photographers of every level.
We saw so many vendors and people we knew, either in real life, or online while we were out there. Finally nailed down an album company for our higher end albums, and found a couple great printers to work with. It’s so nice to work with great people, and great companies! It really makes me happy to be doing what we are doing!
This weekend looks to be a little more laid back, but with a boudoir shoot on Sunday! Can’t wait for that, it should be lots of fun!
