LIONS AND....LAMBS....AND DUCKS........OH MY


Greg was my assistant for a bunch of years. He is now persuing other artistic endeavors. Along the way he met Leann, who seems to be his perfect match. This means they are two of the coolest, most genuine, creative people...and an all around a gift to anyone who gets the blessing of knowing them. Any way. I am sure Greg would be embarrassed if I went on and on, so let it be known that I was honored to be part of their wedding, and it was not anywhere near as awkward shooting them as I thought it would be. Anyone who prefers to be on the behind the lens side of the camera would understand that awkwardness. Greg was reluctantly my test subject for lighting and locations for many many shoots, and I realized recently that in every one of them Greg was making a purposeful funny face. I didn't know if it was possible to photograph him without this practiced ritual being repeated. It seems Leann was no stranger to making faces as well..... but luckily there were just the right amount of fun faces and non mugging real moments. I have a feeling their lives together will be very similar. Congrats guys!
