There’s a mouse, of course, his girlfriend and their pet dog, a duck and a tall, odd, goofy friend. All sitting at the center of a rather huge empire. But there’s the human side, too.
Suma is from Nairobi, Kenya and we hung out with him for a few minutes as we were making our way around Epcot for the Food and Wine Festival. He was carving an elephant out some wood, smiling and laughing with the guests.
Yeah, it’s his job to be out in public and “performing” but I’m going to bet that he wasn’t expecting thousands of people a day. He’s happy to be there, though, and he truly seemed to enjoy the work.
So if you’re in Epcot and you’re wandering past the Outpost (yeah, it’s Africa but Disney won’t call it that) and you happen to see Suma carving away there’s a stool right across from him. Have a seat and say hi.
So being photographers we’re always looking for new places to shoot. New backdrops and locations. So recently during a road trip through Southern Alabama we passed several cotton fields and Shanon says “wouldn’t it be cool to do a shoot in a cotton field?”. Why yes, yes it would.
A couple weeks later we get this note from a couple that says hey,can we do a photo shoot in a cotton field? Why yes, yes we can!
It was a pretty day and we hit the cotton field as the sun was racing south toward the horizon. Shooting fast as the light was changing constantly. Also, if you’ve never walked through a cotton field in bloom carrying a bunch of camera gear, well ya haven’t lived!
Wonderful shoot with a great couple. Checked one off the bucket list and handed off some shots that they love. Yep, I think this is worth it.
What a beautiful way to spend a Saturday. It was a long day to be sure but absolutely worth it. Yvonne and Juan are just a wonderful couple with an equally wonderful family. It’s always fascinating to watch these days come together. Plenty of stress to be sure but a bunch of laughs too. Throw in two people who are deeply in love and incredibly happy together and you get an amazing day.
It was such a cool day. Awesome families, lots of laughs and a great after party. Yeah, most of the time they’re called receptions, but this one was a blast.
What an awesome day spent with a wonderful couple. Kelly and Ezekiel were wed on the beautiful white sand beaches on Okaloosa Island. The sky was a beautiful blue and the clouds gave just enough character to the whole … Continue reading →
Why? Because it is Monday…and I haven’t posted a flower shot in a while. I’m drawn to shots like this when I walk around. Single flowers or clusters hanging on the edge of branches. I don’t know why, … Continue reading →
One of our favorite places on earth is Washington State. It’s incredibly beautiful and absolutely one of the coolest places on earth. Right now some folks up there are going through some pretty rough circumstances. I can’t imagine having … Continue reading →
From way up at the top of Diamond Head you can see this bright pink building sitting on Waikiki Beach. It’s not a lot less dynamic when you’re standing in front of it either. The Royal Hawaiian hotel opened … Continue reading →
I’ve posted a shot of this lighthouse before – Here. The first one was my shot and this one is Shanon’s. I like my shot. It captured the lighthouse the way I pictured it in my head. Thing is, … Continue reading →
There’s a thing about digital photography that I find kind of fascinating. The cameras have a real problem with extremes of light and dark. Because of that they really give some interesting effects when you push the limits. This … Continue reading →
