Where are my pictures dude? (Fall edition)

If you can’t tell by the weather outside, Fall is officially here! Personally, I love shooting in Fall with the cooler weather… less sweating, no shiny skin and no nasty bugs in the grass. Yay! So if you’ve been following the previous editions of ‘Where are my pictures dude?’, then you’ll notice I’m almost done with what was previously listed in the queue… which means it’s time for an updated list. :) But before we get to that, here are a couple random thoughts/updates going through my head:

  • If we aren’t friends on Facebook or you aren’t on a fan of our Facebook page (shame on you), then you don’t know that (drumroll please) Ali and I are pregnant! (more Ali than me. :)) Yep, that’s right! We are expecting in Feb 2014 so we are planning on taking less gigs for 2014 so we can spend more time on being awesome parents to our little half-asian boy. Which means please don’t take it personal when we say we aren’t available to do a gig. :)
  • Here’s a picture of Ali at 16 weeks –

  • The last several weeks has been nutso (that’s an actual word right?)… we traveled to British Columbia, Toronto, Philadelphia and Panama City to shoot weddings and even document a proposal. But what was really cool was being able to second shoot for fellow Genesis Workshop peeps. I don’t get to second shoot often so it nice to play a secondary role for a change. Stay tuned for a blog post with some of my favorite images from second shooting and traveling.

  • Pork belly sandwiches rock my world. That is all.
  • Good-bye Break Bad, hello Walking Dead. Walking Dead is off to an awesome start. Thanks for bringing back the zombies!
  • I’ve been gathering and compiling a bunch of wedding tips that I think would help couples when it comes to planning their wedding day. I plan on posting a bunch at a time and making it a regular/monthly post. Of course these tips are coming from a photographer’s perspective as well as a recent groom. What do you think? Yay or nay?
  • Canon Professional Services (aka CPS) recently changed their Platinum level benefits and I gotta say IT SUCKS. I’m not going to go into the deets but a couple big no-no’s are 1) reducing the labor and parts discount from 60% to 30% (boooooooo) and 2) limiting the amount of yearly repairs allowed to 15 a year (boooooooooo x 2). If you aren’t pleased with these changes, please make sure to voice your opinion to CPS (like I have).
  • October was NOT a good month for our gear… First my 5DMK3 unattached itself from my harness and fell 4 feet hitting the concrete during an engagement session. It still worked but it split the magnesium case on top. OUCH! Just past weekend while were in Florida for Tonya and Dane’s wedding, one of my 600EX-RT flashes made an 8 feet drop to the floor while shooting a reception outdoors in Florida (it was a windy evening). It looked fine but didn’t power on… OUCH x 2! Canon repaired both pieces of gear so they are like new again but it still sucked… I guess these kind of things happen when you are shooting often. *shrug*
