The South Sound Wedding Show – Fashion Show Video

First, I want to say a special thank you to all the brides- and grooms-to-be who stopped by my booth at the South Sound Wedding Show this last weekend, which was held at the Greater Tacoma Convention and Trade Center. It was very nice to meet you and to talk with you all about your weddings. We would be honored to help you document your day in any way that we can.

I also want to thank Paula Lowe and the team at the South Sound Wedding and Event Magazine for putting together a great show. The facility was great and all the booths were incredible. And thank you also for having me be the official fashion show photographer. It was a lot of fun–the models were fabulous and the gowns, hairstyles, and makeup were incredible.

I put together this short video with some of the pictures that I shot. I hope that you enjoy.

And see you at the next show!!

God’s blessings,

Another website up and going

Well, I hate to say it, but I have yet another photo website up and going. You can find it at:

Right now, it is almost a mirror image to The goal with this site it to continue with my efforts to manage a website that google can actually find (I’m having all sorts of problems with the flash-driven, third-party site I currently use), to use as a proofing site for my clients, but eventually to serve as the site in which I can sell some of my work online.

Enjoy the slideshows and new site.
