YoloZona | Day One

Early this year Jesse Pafundi and I talked about having him come out from New York and shoot a wedding with me. So that plan happened. And then I needed someone for a photobooth and I asked my Canadian buddy Heath O’Fee who rocks photobooths up in Calgary if he could come. He couldn’t, so I invited my good friend Brian Furbush (also from New York) instead. And then Heath’s amazing wife surprised him with a plane ticket and suddenly something epic was happening. And then Chris DeAngelis decided he wanted to see a concert here and join us for a crazy weekend.

The wedding was on a Saturday, so Heath and Jesse flew in mid-day Friday and wanted to do nothing but eat good food and see cacti. When you live here you don’t think about it much, but those big Saguaros are kind of awesome. And peeps from NYC and Canada gotta shoot pics of them.

Brian didn’t get in until super early Saturday morning and Chris late Saturday, so I took Jesse and Heath out for a drive along the Apache Trail to see Lost Dutchman, Canyon Lake and other random places. The day ended with a beautiful Arizona sunset, was such a treat that these guys got to see one while out here.

Here are some pics from Day One of our hashtag dubbed trip #YoloZona.

My first real attempt at double exposures in the 5D III…not what I hoped, but I kinda like it.
