Hard drives, hard times.

This is my good buddy and Rhino pal, Angel Arnold. She manages all the media at Rhino and she's embellishing a little bit for this photo. She really really likes her job.

The North Carolina Wedding.

I had the extreme pleasure/honor/joy/privilege of creating a wedding video for my wife's cousin, Katie Bischoff, at her beautiful wedding in Charlotte, NC this weekend.

Since I was shooting all my video on my Canon 5D Mark III, I snagged a couple of pretty moments via photo as well. I'm still transcoding media for the video, but I wanted to share some of the photos, as she looked absolutely fab.

I don't normally like to take photos while shooting video at weddings because I don't want to ever step on the photographer's toes. But I know that she is in good hands, as her photographer, Julie Laible, was really awesome to work with. Check her out at http://julialaiblephotography.com/

Kalamazoo Gals - March 24

I was blessed to be a part of this lunch event at the Kalamazoo House with John Thomas, who wrote a book about women who went to work for the Gibson guitar factory during World War II.
The guitar featured is a 1943 Gibson Banner Acoustic.

I was there filming for a short video and possible documentary, so only shot a select few stills.
