Where am I going????

I will be in Tampa the weekend of January 4th. I'll be there for five days attending the Digital Wedding Forum's annual convention.

And I'm doing it all for you :)

At the convention I'll be brushing up on my skills, learning the latest trends in wedding photography, learning about new album products and so much more.

I'll be attending over 10 seminars and classes as well as attending "The Wedding from Hell" - which is a great way for me to learn how to shoot a fabulous wedding under the most horrible of wedding day circumstances! All of this will benefit my future brides!!

I'll be learning from the best in the industry including Jerry Ghionis, Yervant, Dennis Reggie, Marcus Bell, Jessica Claire and Jesh de Rox. So while you may or may not be able to afford to hire these wedding photography geniuses, how about their student!?

I will be available by phone and email while I am away, as this is a working vacation after all.

I hope everyone enjoys their holiday! And I look forward to a fabulous and inspiring 2008 wedding season!

Holiday gift idea for the photographer in your life!

This past summer I had the privilege to work with one of the industry's leading photographers - Gino Lucadamo. It was an amazing learning experience for me, and I am a better photographer for doing so.

But you don't have to be privileged to work with him personally to learn from Gino. He has a line of instructional DVDs that are really outstanding. For anyone from an avid amateur enthusiast to the professional - these DVDs run through Gino's lighting techniques which are mainly based off the Canon E-TTL flash system.

The first couple DVD's take you through an entire wedding with Gino. The third is a DVD of his wedding bootcamp workshop - it's the second best thing to actually attending. And the last couple go into more advanced lighting techniques, the wireless Canon flash system and more.

You can see previews and order them here

I own all of them and watch them often!

We're having a GIRL!

Thanks everyone for your well wishes! Brian and I are happy to share that we are having a little girl.

I'm right around 5 months now, so a little less than halfway to go!

We'll be spending those winter months getting her room in order!

Here's a picture to share:
