Thanks everybody for the flood of requests for reminders to see the wedding photos! While I'm working on the edits... In my 8 years of wedding photography I've never before personally seen a bride and groom put together such a dance routine mix, and even more to have the entire bridal party - a pregnant bridesmaid, the bubble girl and everyone →
At the end of March I packed up an SUV worth of lighting and photo gear and headed to Fort Wayne to join a friend and visual artist cohort for a day of throwing around ideas for a poster concept he'd been working on for his employers. Back during his 5-ish years as the Underground Cafe's resident DJ and lighting designer, →
I saw a few film photographers pull this move when I started out and it kept me away from photographing weddings and events and stepping in someone else's spotlight. Finding out how to shoot the style I enjoy and NOT steal the spotlight and run someone else's day: priceless. One of the best compliments after a fun filled wedding day is →
It's wedding season! Two wedding weekends in a row and I've already got the Saturday night playlists stuck in my head. These videos make the weekend mix of reception music crack me up while I'm shooting. Love the Polaroid camera closing snap sound! Don't make me sing this part of the song, the lyrics are so bad we're going to skip ahead to the "single →
Just a fun post to enjoy - With all the cheesecake baking, homemade garlic & curry hummus, and tonight's seared salmon dinner I have to brag on Sara's culinary creativity. I mentioned turning our back deck into a neighborhood cafe tonight, especially as the spring weather brings grilling back to the dinner deck. I loved eating outside in the back yard →
a little crazy! Mr Bean's Nativity recreation comes close to how I think the Christmas story would have been recorded if my friends and I told the story in a toy shop. Merry Christmas, friends! (if the video doesn't show in a feed check out the original post on http://ebphotography.com/blog)
Just in time for the holiday weekend and my personal preferred date to start hearing Christmas music (if it hasn't snowed yet) - "O Holy Night" by Seven Day Jesus. Their encore song from February 1, 1998. The song was recorded for the Happy Christmas compilations, my favorite Christmas songs ever. Live performance has a bit of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" →
This junk never ceases to amaze. There's a reason I'm not using Myspace too often, well several reasons, and this bulletin hoax is my favorite reason yet. From Mr. Tom Jones (Manager of Myspace). Myspace system is getting too crowded!! [too "lets try and copy FaceBook features," maybe, it's been crowded with junk for years] We need you to forward this →
"Johnny 5, now you are hitting the nail right between the eyes." Wow. I caught this video following Zack Arias' blog. For those of you outside the photography world, this week is the WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International) convention in Vegas. Yes, warm Vegas. Shiny, warm, not Indiana Vegas where rock star photographers show you shiny new books, cameras, software and →
This one's for all my tech production friends. You know who you are. Judah, Mark, Phil, Alex, JP, Adam, the Jesses, Aaron, Dustin, and the whole late night cleanup crew... you guys rock. You make the Underground happen and make it a happening place. It's been way too long since the last Underground Cafe show, time to fire it up →
I can't even describe how proud of him I am. The kid's got skills. "Daddy" saying skills, walking skills, and ninja skills. Making his parents crack up skills, too, for that matter. We're celebrating his 1st birthday this weekend. It has been an amazing year seeing him grow from sleepy baby to wiggly walker learning new words and new fun skills. We →
A friend shared this video over the weekend, enjoy a smile. Cbk980jV7Ao This film's a good reminder to say something nice today. You never know how far a compliment can go! Smile, smile, smile! eB
Here's a glimpse at Indiana weather today, in song format. Ig2NtHY2g9k The arctic is no respecter of fashion. Ice, snow, nowhere to go. Be safe out there.
Were never meant to look like this. Flashback from Summer 2000 kids camp and a comedy sketch gone terribly wrong. Hopefully things in Beijing will have fewer polar bears, too.
Last night I got to test out our "Emergency Storm Warning / Evacuation / Baby visits Grandparents plan" when we had word of severe storms and 75-100mph winds as well as tornado warnings heading straight for us. We don't have a basement here should a tornado appear, and Adrian loves visiting Grandma and Grandpa. (They have cable, too!) Aside from →
Watch out, e-trade commercial baby, there's a new face in the EB Photography office taking over the position of "cutest office baby." eJqnitjqpuM
This one's for the kids of the late 70s and 80s around Indiana & Michigan (affectionately merged and named Michiana) who grew up hearing this song at least once a day. Out of nowhere it popped into my head and I found it on YouTube to get it stuck in your head for ANOTHER 20 years. Listen at your own →
LuSBCIV1zuQ FIGHT FOR KISSES - if my son Adrian and I were "fighting for kisses" he'd be winning by a long shot - I hate shaving. But he does have really soft skin and for the first couple of weeks home I felt like he was making faces at me for getting (almost) all Sara's attention. Today I played Mr. Mom →
Perfect start to the (creative) work week. What's art to you?
Voila, un convercacion en la parque! My weekend is beginning something like this, thanks to Flight of the Conchords: X5hrUGFhsXo If I had taken French at CCS, r.i.p., I imagine it would have sounded much like that. Enjoy!
After a yummy home made chicken pot pie lunch Baby got kicking up a storm so I grabbed the video camera to show just what he's up to. Turns out both his mommy AND his daddy like to cook, and I've learned to be careful what I suggest to my pregnant wife. We've cleaned and cleaned the whole apartment, redecorated →
