If there is ever anything that is distracting at work, it’s when I pass by Dee’s office. The guy is a fantastic landscape photographer and we could probably spend most days just talking about our cameras, lenses, experiences, good news, bad news, etc. I dare you to check out his image from the Palouse in Washington and not stare in awe at that spectacular landscape (see it here, 2nd from left bottom row). Dee was one of the photographers showing with me down at the Day Twelve Gallery for First Friday.
He recently became engaged to a wonderful woman named Iulia and they asked for some photos to use for invitations and whatnot, so we met in downtown Phoenix to get some images.
The top photo…well, I asked them to do a little smooch for a couple of shots and they got a bit carried away, which was awesome. I think I had to say “Alright guys, calm down…let’s just relax, afterall, I’m still here.”
They were awesome fun and all smiles the entire time. In fact, anytime I asked for a serious pose, it was a struggle.
Thanks guys for letting me do this for you and cannot wait until the big wedding day!
