Ok, here goes it! I had a blast with these two amazing people. They are a very special couple with really great family and friends. The Grand March was a blast and I didn’t get too turned around. Their ceremony was at MacArthur Park Lutheran Church and the reception was at the Knights of Columbus Hall in San Antonio, Texas.
Mirror fun with Amanda (left) and her sister Stephanie (right) having their makeup done. Stephanie has amazing eyes!

Window light is nice.

One of my favorites. Dusk + Street lights = great fun.
One of my favorites. A special father + daughter moment.

Congratulations Andy and Amanda!

This weekend I attended one of my favorite events of the year. The Southwestern Photojournalism Conference in Ft. Worth, Texas. I love this three day event. I have been to at least 6 of these conferences or more and I get something new from it each time and meet so many cool people. One of the things I love about it is that they let anybody have the stage for 2 minutes to either present 6 photos or a multimedia presentation. You get up and introduce yourself and talk about your photos. I love this because I get to learn about some many cool people and what they are doing. I’ve made some great friends from this. Because I presented some of my photographs of my baking endeavors at the last conference this year I decide to show the food photos I have been taking recently for jobs that are a direct result of the self project. So, I thought I let you see my two minute show.
This is the only photo I took of my baked goods that I showed. My Hostess cupcake.
It was kinda neat that I went up right before dinner, too. I have been doing a lot of food photography for San Antonio Magazine and love it. Be sure to check out the March and April issues. You might recognize a byline or two.
Also, the SWPJC has a special place in my heart because back when I was 16 I attended it for the first time and that was when I figured out that I was supposed to be a photojournalist. I can’t count the amount of amazing things that have happened at or through this conference. You can’t forget Babe’s Chicken Dinner House either.
