So I was fixing my sprinklers in the yard. I spy this white thing covered lightly in water droplets. I say "ah" run to get my camera. now picture this. I am covered in sweat, mud, water, filth, from working in the yard, I am on my hands and knees trying to get a good shot of this, my butt way up in the air... my mom pulls in the driveway with a puzzled look on her face.

"john what are YOU doing?" "nothing mom". I just couldn't explain.

after work, I hurried down to see Becka just before her big school dance. it was a great time and she was a good sport. I don't know what is up with the tongue thing, but she did it for almost every shot.

I was lucky enough to get together with kati. we went went to beautiful downtown Dunedin. we had to hide from the rain for a bit but i think all came out well in the end.

while shooting Kait this weekend we were walking around and stumbled upon this. sometime you just can't wait till you get home.

ah, the life of a second shooter.
I had honor of helping Sandy from shoot a beautiful beach wedding Saturday. One problem, the bride broke her foot, " how were WE going toget her down to the beach?" so I came up with this bright idea of getting a beach wheelchair. so after parking my truck, at the church. I ran a mile and a half to get the wheelchair. yes, a mile and a half. I get to Pier 60 , the lifeguard tells me I can have the wheelchair, but for only an hour. I beg, plead, tell him my story, p l e a s e let me have it overnight. I promise and swear on everything holy I will bring it back. he says leave 1,500 and I can do it. I hand over my Toys r' us visa, and I am pushing this wheelchair a mile and a half back through Clearwater beach.
the story gets better. we shoot the wedding everything is great, the bride decides not to go to the beach.
ouch .
all that work for nothing. such is the life of a second shooter.
here is bobby the lifeguard laughing about my story.

I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to spend some time, helping to shoot Shane and Kristin's wedding the other day.The poor bride broke her foot three days before the wedding but, seemed to get down the aisle just fine.
