Windee + Kyle

True confession: I got a bit misty-eyed and moved to tears at this ceremony, which is funny because I had barely talked to Kyle or Windee before we started talking about shooting their wedding. But, there are just some people that you instantly care about and know are going to be a powerful team for the Kingdom, and those people are worth getting emotional over :)

Kyle and Windee are those people. They are so kind, so caring (they must have thanked me at least 10 times for being at their wedding), and were so loved by everyone at that wedding. One of my favorite parts of the ceremony was post-kiss, when the officiant does the whole "I now present to you for the first time, Mr. and Mrs. ...." thing. The audience went nuts. I mean, it's normal to have some clapping and a little bit of whoop-whoop, but this audience clapped and clapped and clapped. I actually wondered how long Kyle and Windee were going to have to stand there being celebrated before they got to do their celebratory exit. These are the weddings that make me glad to do what I'm doing. Congrats, Mr. and Mrs. Fabatz. (and the crowd goes wiiiiiiild)


I love new toys.
And no one knows this better than my best pal, Shea, who was like my Santa Claus this year! In addition to lots of other fun presents, she got me a quad cam! It takes 4 pictures at once (about a 2-second time span), so it can capture some motions in a single frame. Plus, it's just plain fun! I do love shooting with film. I love that mystery– the anticipation, the waiting, the curiousity of what will develop! Here are some fun shots I got on rolls #1 & 2:

Publicity is Weird. (but I kinda like it)

It's been a year of firsts so far - first shot on the cover of a newspaper, of a magazine, for a film festival guide and poster... it's exciting! I've been so honored to be a part of these projects. Various Magazine has the potential to unite our community and bring attention to some deserving folks and the Indie Spirit Film Festival is in a class all its own, bringing quality indie films from around the world to our small conservative world in Colorado Springs. It's such a treat to work alongside these people who are doing great things for our great city. Anyways, here's a sampling of my most "high(er) profile" work as of late:
