Roy & Kaci Got Married

Sunday, September 27th, 2009

roy_kaci_212Yesterday Roy Janik & Kaci Beeler were wed. I attended the 12th wedding of 2009, and my 40th wedding photography gig. They were married at the Cathedral of Junk in south Austin and the reception was held at Hill’s Cafe just a few blocks away.

It’s been a long time since I’ve felt such emotion at a wedding. I never thought I’ d ever be able to engage fully  after seeing so many. I didn’t realize how close I’d gotten with two people with Austin. It’s been three years since leaving Ohio and I now have enough memories with people here that when they get married I see all the moments we’ve spent zip through my mind.

It hit me the night before at the Moonbase when Roy said “I’m glad you’re here”. And again when I met Kaci at the hotel to do some getting ready pictures. It was hard to concentrate on taking photos, I just got so caught up in the magic of everything. Everything was so perfect and I’m so happy for it.

Congratulations you two.

MC Folks at Harris & Lisa's Wedding, Long Island, NY

Corvallis, OR – Portland, OR – Columbus, OH – Cleveland, OH – Marietta, OH – Long Island, NY – NYC – Sherman, CT – Oklahoma City, OK – Orlando, FL

I’m exhausted. The last trip this year is Amsterdam – Paris this November. It’s going to be a real vacation. No laptops. No phones. Probably a camera though :-) But this time, it’s for me and my photo albums so my future grandchildren can see and wonder.

Out of Print?

Apparently this is all that is left of the original printing of  my last album, “Choose Your Own Adventure”. Hard to believe 2,500 copies are out there. Granted many of them are piled in random distro depots collecting dust. 2006 seems like forever ago.
