Speaking of toys

Tuesday, October 30, 2007

You can buy this grown up toy for yourself.
The White Stripes and Lomo put out these 2 cool cameras, the Jack is a Holga kit and the Meg is a Diana with a ringflash attachment and filters.
Only $190.
It's all I want for Christmas! (hint, hint!)

I'm not Barbie but I shot her wedding.....

Monday, October 29, 2007

My daughter saw a Barbie Baby Photographer in Target while we were shopping for a birthday gift, so I was amused when I later saw her and her sister making up a game with their Barbies.

Barbie the wedding photographer!

They asked me to shoot their wedding... complete with a flower girl with real petals, to the formal shots and the exit in the Barbie Bug.

It's nice to see wedding photographers as a career for them to aspire too!

Cheers to Barbie & Ken and a long and happy marriage!

Rocking wedding

Monday, October 1, 2007

This cute couple was married at Le San Michele in Buda Texas on a beautiful September night amongst a backdrop of cosmos in bloom.

They looked like they knew how to rock so I used the Dandy Warhols song "I Love You" for my Second slide show.....(if it's too much you can turn off the volume!)

Thanks Eric for assisting and some great images.....
