Shot a Killigans and 4020 show a week or so back. While it was rather dark, the lighting was really cool. However, not the same could be said for the acoustics. The place (the state theatre) is built like a cave, with sound bouncing off of everything.

Family time, ready for fall

Two family shots. First off, congrats to my little brother Jesse. He just graduated from SCC Milford and has a good job lined up in omaha. for now, however, he is bumming on my couch until he can move into his apartment.

Second, my uncle and cousin came into town for the vtech game. I met up with them beforehand. hooray!

That all said, who here is ready for fall? I know i am. Trees turning, temp dropping, the smell of leaves, pumpkin seeds, these are a few of my favorite things.

Last of the summer

Last weekend marked the end of a long and busy wedding season. I was very happy to end on the wedding of two friends, Eric and Emily. I've waxed poetic about outdoor weddings before, and I will do it again. Outdoor weddings are fantastic because you have great light, plenty of room for movement, and normally very nice weather. This wedding had all of those and more. I was also able to try out a new assistant, the ever talented and just downright cool Clay Lomneth. He did a fantastic job, and once I get done processing the images and have time to give his shots back, you more than likely will have a chance to check out his stuff at his blog,

This is probably my favorite shot from the whole wedding. The look on her face as she peeks around the corner to look her future husband was perfect, and fantastic late afternoon light is always good.

Stick cam! Another fun thing with outdoor weddings is that you can slap a camera and wide angle lens on top of a mono pod, stick it up in the air, and shoot some really cool shots from way up high.

This is Eric and his kid getting ready before the ceremony.

Now, I don't know if this one is that great, but it has started to grow on me. Yeah, they are not in focus, but i really like the feel of it.


This is one from the rehearsal, with the groomsmen. I loves me some layering.

Here is Clay wearing a suit coat that is far, far too large for him as one of the bridesmaids de-fuzzes it for the groomsman.

Eric and Em getting in an amazing 67 Firebird Convertible. That is one cool way to leave the wedding in style.

All in all, a great day. I still have hours and hours of post processing ahead of me, with a total of more than 7000 images from the day to sort through. Congrats to both of them.

Scrumpy Jacks

It always makes me sad to see a local bar go out of business. Scrumpy Jacks was a fun bar in south lincoln that i frequented, and i will miss it.
