Friday we spent the day at the Dallas Convention Center. We were volunteering doing pirate photos for the Snowball Express, which is a charity that provides hope and new memories to the children of our fallen military heroes who died while on active duty since 9-11. One of our grooms from this year is a VP for Elbit Systems, a government military contractor, and they are a big sponsor of the Snowball Express and they told us about it. We were eager to help any way we could and when we found out they were thinking of doing pirate-themed family photos we were excited to donate our services.

There were many people involved in putting together this donation to Snowball Express and we would like to say a huge thank you to them – we couldn’t have done this event without you!  Many thanks to Janet and Frank with Cottonwood Creek Costume Company for not only providing props and costumes but also for volunteering their time on Friday to help dress people in costume all day.  We would also like to thank Joyce with GG Creations and Tim with Old Time Photos in Pigeon Forge for sending us tons costumes and props. Finally, another huge thank you goes out to Andrew with Shinko for providing the media for the printers and thanks to Doug, Laura and Tina with imageTech Marketing for providing the Shinko S1245 8×10 printer and Eric, Ronny and Bob with Imaging Spectrum for providing the back up Shinko S1245 printer.

Saturday we were invited to a special day at Cowboy Stadium. The floor of the stadium was set up for dinner and a special concert by the Lt. Dan Band. If the name sounds familiar it is because it is named for Gary Sinise’s character in Forrest Gump. Mr. Sinise came out on the field hours before the concert to shake hands, do photos and sign autographs for the attendees. I was able to photograph him and shake his hand. I thanked him for all he had done for Snowball Express and everyone in the military.

This was incredibly moving experience to know what these families have gone through and we were honored and humbled to be a small part of this amazing event.

It was supposed to be just another job in high school.  Sure, LeAnne’s manager at her new job was cute but he was her boss! As with most high school jobs, this one ran its course and they both moved on, never to hear from each other again (or so they thought).  Fast forward to one year later – Louis headed out to watch a football game with a few buddies and felt compelled to chat up the cute girl working there – they knew each other from somewhere but couldn’t quite place it…

LeAnne & Louis – we had a great time getting to know you a little better and a HUGE thanks for taking me to my first Ranger’s game.  I loved it and we can’t wait for your wedding!

… the follow-up!

Well, we had another great Bridal Show last weekend and would like to thank everyone who stopped by to say hi.  We met a lot of excited new brides (and quite a few grooms) and were happy to see some of our current brides as well.  We hope you all found everything you needed and had your fill of cake samples :-). We would like to say a huge congratulations to Kelly who is getting married in June of 2010 – she is the winner of our grand prize, a FREE 10×10 20-page flush mount album!

We would also like to remind everyone that we are running a special until May 31, 2009 – if you book us to shoot your wedding, your engagement session will be upgraded to our deluxe e-session which includes more time, more locations, and a custom-designed guest signature book.

Tomorrow is a pretty busy day for us.  We will be starting our day at the Stockyards Hotel to photograph Diana and Donnie’s intimate wedding and we can’t wait – they have a few surprises planned for their guests.  After that, we are heading to the draft party for the Dallas Cowboys.  Bill was at the Cowboys camp earlier this week to work with them and train their new crew on their photo system, so we will be stopping by once the party is in full swing to make sure everything is running smoothly.
