These guys are an awesome couple (heck they even brought me a beer ~ thanks!!!) and it really drove home how important I think shooting these engagement sessions is for me as a photographer. I try to include a engagement shoot in every package I put together, because not only does it allow us to capture some great images of the couple, but because it allows us to have time connect before the wedding day. I can't wait for this wedding as I know it is going to be blast.
Check out some of the pics from the other night...
Okay maybe not but I have been profiled by the Photoshop and Photography Blogroll which is put together by Jason Moore (no relation that I know of) and serves as a clearing house of blog information for some of the best photographers and Adobe Photoshop experts. I am honored to be part of his profile series and weekly blogroll.

Brochures will be going out to number of local venues and and all prospective clients. The are also going to be on display at Babies & Bellies (a baby boutique and consignment shop here in St. Petersburg) where they have a quite a bit of our dramatic portraits on display.
This brochure focus's mainly on our Dramatic Portrait and Wedding Photography. Another photography brochure on our Fine Art Photography and Nature Photography is in the works.
Here are some images of the brochure and a PDF can be found HERE.

I took out my new 1D3 last night to try out the new "liveview" feature on some fireworks shots. It worked great. Liveview lets me see everything I normally would through the viewfinder on the LCD screen in real time. While I don't anticipate using this all that often for weddings or portraits it was great for fireworks because I could enjoy the show without my face to the camera the whole time. I wasn't really going for stellar shots as much as I just wanted to try out this new feature but I did end up with a few "keepers".
Also as a special bonus I thought I'd post a pic of Olivia from today as she tried to clean up the house in preparation for our 4th of July party. This was also shot with the new Canon Mark III. More pictures from this new gear in the next few days.
After it happened the gentleman in me outweighed the wedding photographer as I put down the camera and tried to catch the veil. But as it was flying around the front of the Church and up and down the street I realized there were plenty of groomsman running around and I had better get the camera back up.
By the time the camera was back to my face it was back in front of the church again and eventually came down for safe landing in the hands of one of the groomsman.
