Aaron & Courtney: Engagements

So this past weekend I headed out to Santa Monica for an engagement session.  I was so excited to meet this couple and shoot this session as I've never been to the west coast!  And let me just say before I get any further I have awesome clients!  I was greeted with a goody bag and treated to an awesome breakfast, how cool is that :)  They made me feel right at home, thanks guys!

So we decided to start the day off at Pepperdine in Malibu.  This is such a beautiful campus and towards the end a fog started to roll in which was pretty cool.  We then headed down to a couple little places in Malibu before heading back to finish off in Santa Monica.  

I had such an awesome time hanging out with yall and I can't wait for the wedding!  Now on to the slideshow and I'll be adding a few stills later on tonight, enjoy!

***Added the pics now!  Scroll past the slideshow to check them out...

The fog started to roll in and man was it cool!  And by cool I mean it actually got kinda chilly :)

On the BEAUTIFUL Pepperdine campus.

This was right before we were told taking pics in there was a no no :)  Gorgeous none the less!

Checkout these red shoes.... and that wall!  I LOVED shooting down in Santa Monica, sooo many awesome colors ;)

Day 72 of 365

So my wife was out of town and instead of making me fend for myself for a few days look what she did. Knowing lasagna is one of my fav all time meals she made me some with the instructions on the foil.

Fast Track Photographer: Want a copy???

I truly believe that one of the greatest gifts you can give someone is a book. Last night at the Free to Succeed tour in Atlanta I gave away a few books and I truly hope that those people enjoy them!

I just read Dane Sanders' new book Fast Track Photographer and it's amazing! If you are a photographer who owns/runs your own business or are even considering the notion you have to read the book.

To hold true to what I've been saying, if you're a photographer and you have not read the book, comment or shoot me an e-mail and you might just win yourself a copy. Just tell me why you are wanting to read the book and what you hope to accomplish from reading it, it's that simple!
