The BODA FOTO Workshop is coming up!

On December 6th, I am joining forces with the uber talented Jennifer Lindberg to teach a workshop for photographers that are just getting into the wedding business.  We understand how overwhelming it can be to shoot your first wedding (or actually get paid for shooting your first wedding).  During this workshop we’ll cover pretty much anything you feel like you need to know as well as many many things you didn’t even KNOW you needed to know.  We’ll also be having portfolio reviews.  Don’t be shy!  Just bring us whatever you have.  It’s going to be a fun day and I guarantee you’ll walk away from it with lots of knowledge that will boost your confidence.  Also, after the workshop we won’t forget about you.  We will be checking in with all of you to see how it’s going.  We still have a few seats left so visit the BODA FOTO website and sign up today!  Keep in mind that this isn’t a shooting workshop so leave your cameras at home but bring your laptops.

We will be announcing our shooting workshops in the future.  So stay tuned for that!

TGIF, y’all,
Smash

Buy TOMS for your wedding.

 
TOMS is a unique shoe company in that for every pair of shoes that someone buys, the company donates a pair of shoes to a child somewhere in the world that is in need.  TOMS is offering special deals for couples who outfit their entire wedding party in TOMS.  Tyler from TOMS emailed me some additional info:

“The way the Bridal program works is for bridal parties wanting to wear TOMS in their weddings we will give them a 10% discount on a order of 10 or more pairs. The way this works is someone in the bridal party would need to collect sizes and styles from everyone based on the availability at www.TOMSSHOES.com and then contact us through the weddings@tomsshoes.com email with that information and we will take care of the rest. Note: we need about two weeks from the time we take the order to the time they are at your door – so plan accordingly.”

Kate (of Kate and Pedro, gave TOMS to her bridesmaids, Mom and the flower girl (the little feet on the right – CUTE), as gifts for her wedding.

One little picture from the NOLA wedding.

 
In addition to having perfect New Orleans charm, this wedding had the perfect use of the color yellow.  It’s just my opinion that bold colors like yellow (and purple) can overpower a setting when used in great excess.  To all of my brides that have used yellow or purple in their color schemes: NO, I’m not talking about your wedding!  But sometimes people can get a bit carried away with their favorite color.  I think you all know what I mean.

Here’s to the appropriate use of a dominant color (and to weddings in New Orleans)!

More photos coming sooner than later,

Holga – El Cosmico, Marfa, Texas

After an exhausting weekend of shooting two days of a gorgeous wedding celebration in Houston, I find myself dreaming of West Texas.  Specifically of El Cosmico in Marfa TX.  Everything there slows waaaaaay down.  Phone reception is spotty at best and West Texas has the most beautiful big sky that you could possibly imagine.  At night, it seems like you can see every star.  When you’re there, activities include: sitting still, walking (but only if you really want to), swatting flies, listening to the wind, watching mind blowing sunsets (and sometimes sunrises) drinking beer and chatting with friends (or just sitting with them in silence).  Does this sound boring?  Well, it’s not.  It’s wonderful. 

El Cosmico is basically a camp site.  But it’s from the creative mind of Liz Lambert and her insanely talented team of designers, dreamers.  So it’s special, clever.  It has refurbished vintage trailers, a large tee pee, and yurts on site and available for renting.  Or you can simply camp in tents.

If you’re looking for bliss, which at this very moment I am doing, go to El Cosmico.

Getcha Party on: GIRL TALK

 
 
 
 
 
There are very few things I like better than dancing.   Photography is one of them.  Honestly though, it’s sometimes neck and neck because although photography has the possibility to bring me joy, dancing ONLY brings me joy.  My favorite dance party album right now is Feed The Animals by Girl Talk (it has been for over a year).  The DJ behind Girl Talk is Greg Gillis.  Do you love mash-ups?  Well, he has approximately 300+ samples of music on Feed the Animals, so it’s a monster mash up.  Not only do I love dancing to Girl Talk, I love photographing other people dancing to Girl Talk.  So this was a fantastic 16 minutes of shooting for me in which I got in trouble for standing on a table on stage (so I could get the last shot) and received a ride on a stranger’s shoulders from the stage to the pit because I couldn’t get through the crowd of kids dancing on stage.  Thank you, big guy.
Download Feed The Animals and let the boogie begin.
Also, if you are feeling the need to get your live music boogie (or metal or punk) on, you absolutely MUST go to Fun Fun Fun Fest this weekend!!! I will see you there.
