Palm Desert

Monday, April 30th, 2007 -

I fell behind with my blogging. Ever since I returned home from New York I’ve been on a roller coaster ride. The day after I landed I had to head out to 3 days of shooting in Palm Desert. It was a great event. I shot the rehearsal dinner, the wedding and the Sunday brunch. I had such a great time. Since it was a 3 day event I decided to take my wife Stephanie along with me. All 3 days took place at the beautiful Big Horn Country Club. The brides father has a beautiful home on the property. I was so blown away on how amazing this property was.
I owe Lauri Davies of Five Star Events for making me a part of this event. I must say Laurie did such an amazing job on this event. She was responsible for all 3 days. Everything was perfect. She really blew me away with how well everthing went. Great job Laurie.
Also Keith Laverty did an amazing job on the design,florals,linens and lighting. He really had to work under the gun setting up the tent for the reception. It came out beautiful.

The bride was really into converse tennis shoes as you can see by the ice sculpture that they had for the rehearsal dinner.

She had some custom made converse made for the wedding. They were very cool.

I think the flower girl was giving her some last minute advice.

For the Sunday brunch they had the gospel group back. They again blew me away. So if you think a gospel group might be a good fit for your event be sure to look this group up. Ray Sidney and Firm Soundation
They had people in tears with their songs.

It was such a great weekend. So if you are ever in Palm Desert be sure to check out Big Horn Country Club.

Thursday, April 19th, 2007 -

The last few days have been a blast in NYC. It’s one of our favorite city’s to hang out in. We hope to spend a lot more time in New York in the future.
We’ve ate some great food and had some great nights out. Thanks to our great friend Bobby with Leather Craftsmen.He really showed us an amazing couple of nights. If you are a photographer and haven’t looked into Leather Craftsmen as your album supplier I would put that at the top of your to do list. You will not be disappointed.
Also Ira from Leather Craftsmen suggested an over the top great Italian Place. It was a total hole in the wall. Hole in the walls are always my favorite.

Here we are arriving at Franks for our amazing meal. Thanks Ira.

Here is Amanda loving the mussels in red wine sauce

I had to try the Rigatoni and sausage meatballs. Bobby said I had to try it.

That night we met up with Bobby and Andy Marcus and his family for dinner.Andy Marcus is a household name for photography in New York city.His father started the studio over 40 years ago. It may have even been longer. It was great getting the chance to hang out with some local New Yorkers. Everybody was so great. We had a blast.
I wish I had a better group shot. This is the best the waitree could do.

Here is a good shot of myself, Stephanie, Amanda and Bobby.

We had a surprise vistor later that night. Ira happen to be in New York also.

The next day we had a great time hanging out with Derek with Derek Photographers.
Derek is also another household name in The New York area. Derek has been in business for 39 years. It was so great getting to meet photographers that have been running a business for such a long time.
Derek has a great studio located in Westchester County. He also has a studio located in the city. We had a chance to visit the Westchester studio. It was located in this great old building.

Today we started out at Katz’s. A landmark deli in New York. Bobby also turned me on to this place. It is also know as the deli where the movie When Harry Met Sally shot the famous scene where sally got very worked up. They even have a sign over the seat she sat in.
If you love a good pastrami. This is a must place to stop. The pastrami was amazing.

Hanging out in New York City

Monday, April 16th, 2007 -

It’s Amanda’s birthday at the end of the week. So we decided to jump on a red eye and hang out in New York for a few days. So Amanda,Stephanie and myself jumped on a plane and here we are. It figures New York decided have a major rain storm this week. We just landed before a bunch of flights got canceled. We’ve been here 24 hours now and are having a blast.
Our first stop is to check in to our hotel.
img_3086-copy.jpg
I love W Hotels. Whenever we can we always stay at the W. There are 4 W hotels in NYC. This time we choose The W Times Square.
We decided we wanted a good laugh last night. So we headed down the street from our hotel to Carolines Comedy Club.
img_3109.jpg
This club is so great. It’s a small venue. So there are no bad seats.
David Alan Grier from In Living Color was the headliner. There was also a very funny comedian that opened for him.
Drew Fraser He was hillarious!!!!!! Be sure to buy one of his CD’s.

The girls wanted one of Drews CD’s. So we also grabbed him for a quick picture.
img_3115.jpg

After David Alan Grier’s set he was hanging out with the audiance. So we grabbed a picture with him also. He was very easy going.

After the show we walked around the streets. We ended up in a hole in the wall comedy club around the corner for Carolines. It was called Ha!
We ended being picked on by a couple of comedians. It was so funny.

On the way back to the hotel we got dumped on.

Anne & Scott Engagement

Anne and Scott live out of state.They are working with one of my favorite wedding coordinators Kathy Jo Peterson. So I know they are in great hands for their wedding. They were in town taking care of some last minute wedding details. One of them was taking their engagement pictures. They don’t get to hang out on California beaches to often. So I thought I would take them to my favorite spot in Laguna.

I didn’t want them to go home without having been in the California ocean.

Kelly and Mike were troopers today. As you will see.
