Snyder/Trey Engagement

I think lately my text is boring, Meliss and Alois are not boring at all. Less talk, more rock.

Cotter/Saltamach Wedding

Cottage #6 at Skytop Lodge was the site of Paige and George's crazy wedding. There were clouds, sun, rain, wind, and fog. There were gorgeous people, great food, awesome music, and and a tent that was full of excitement and friendship. Yes, there was alot going on...in fact it, is now Sunday and this wedding tired me out. Here are a few faves as always...

Camera Shopping?

I  recently have been asked what camera to buy from alot of people.  I am always glad to tell people my two cents after years of shooting and in the past selling cameras.
Right from the start I say stick with Nikon or Canon. I have shot with Canon digital/film cameras and currently shoot with Nikon digital/film cameras. Knowing other photographers that shoot Canon I can tell you a few things, then a few things about Nikon.
First, Canon always seems to be a little, and I mean a little, ahead of the game. Their equipment is less expensive then Nikon equipment of comparable technology. However, all the professionals I know have their equipment fixed quite a bit. Most of you are not professionals and use your cameras significantly less than say a photojournalist, so Canon still makes sense in the long run.
Nikon is more expensive of the two when you compare technology. However, I recently had my first repair of my main camera. First repair EVER with any Nikon equipment. I do have a lens that should be fixed after being dropped, but it still works, dents and all.
Most consumers today are looking for a digital SLR(single lens reflex) but every month more and more advanced "point and shoots" are hitting the market. Again, I say stick with Nikon or Canon.

Here is a list of what I would suggest to the average consumer looking for a digital camera with great quality.


Next top quality DSLR's for amateurs looking to step it up a little.

Nikon D5000

Canon T2i

An old friend/boss/teacher told me this a long time ago and I can think of nothing more important when it comes to photography, "It's not the camera, its the person behind it."

Klebs/Snell Wedding

Erika and Brian had an awesome day for a wedding, and in turn had an awesome wedding! It was awesome to see my old friend Chantel, and it was awesome working with a young, eager videographer.
Miniature sliders = awesome. Good DJ = awesome. Two people madly in love = awesome. This wedding = awesome.
